Thumbs up December Exercise Challenge!!

Oh, my. One month to the New Year.

I am very impressed with all the exercise you ladies did last month! and incredibly embarrassed with my own lack of progress. You are all to be congratulated.

Here's to another month of moving and losing!!
Anyone is free to jump and join us!!

Okay, then, here we go!

This morning I did workouts from 2 different DVDs. Kathy Smith's Cardio Timesaver -- Quick Workout #1 = 20 minutes. And Cathe's Maximum Body Sculpting (from the low impact step DVD) -- 28 minutes. My total today -- 48 minutes.

Here is to a sweat-filled, healthy December!

It's Friday! A cardio day for me, and traditionally I try to do a favorite to celebrate the end of the work week. So this morning I did Cathe's Low Max; I did 5 circuits (out of 7) for a total of 53 minutes.

Have a great day! Keep on pumpin'!

I ran 10 miles this morning. Woo Hoo! That is my longest run ever. It took me 2 hours and 23 minutes and I burned 750 calories. What an awesome way to start the month.

2nd: 263 minutes - Phew! 10 miles.

Good going, girls!

I just did 3 hours of heavy cleaning at my sister's, which I figure equals 90 minutes of exercise. I worked up quite a sweat. Phew! Plus a 20 minute walk.

Hey! This day is flying by!

I'm having quite a busy week -- I'm involved in my church Christmas pageant and it starts this week. Tonight is final dress rehearsal. I have a drama role and my own song -- it's great fun, but I'm already tired and we have 2 weeks of presentations! And I'm already feeling the lack of sleep. We have our final dress rehearsal tonight. I'm in the habit of getting up at 4:30 am to do my exercise, and I'm hoping to continue that! Sleep will be a casualty, but I think I can afford that better than to risk losing my good habits. So send me some kind thoughts, if you wish!

So, over the weekend, on Saturday I did the toning workout from Gilad's 45/45 Split -- 45 minutes.

Sunday (my "active rest day") I did Cathe's Basic Step (30 minutes) and an upper body workout from QuickFix Total Body (10 minutes) -- 40 minutes.

This morning I did Donna Richardson's Brazilian Workout -- 52 minutes.

I hope everybody has a great beginning to this new week!

Greetings to all!

This morning I did a QuickFix Cardio Hip-Hop workout (10 minutes) and Denise Austin's Shrink Your Female Fat Zones (40 minutes) -- Total 50 minutes.

Send a warm thought -- our morning low was -4, and hubby just called and said the furnace quit! The repairman is on his way, and I hope it's a quick (and if possible, cheap) fix!

Hope your home is warm today!

I worked out last night after I got home. Did my Crunch Pilates dvd.

Dancing Angel - did you get your furnace fixed? I hope so. I thought it was cold here at 30 degrees above. Minus 4 is too darn cold! Here are some sun-shiney vibes for you!
