iDream 05-09-2009 06:45 PM

Wow you ladies are rockin'!!! You're all doing fantastic!

I just noticed that my goal says Strength Train 4 days a week--I need to change that to 3 days. I'm doing some form of cardio daily (either treadmill or 30 Day Shred) and then I'm alternating my ST'ing so it's ST, Cardio, ST, Cardio and so on. Depending on how the week runs I'm either going to do 3 days or 4 of ST'iong so I'll just say 3 and any week that I end up doing 4 days I'll just call it a bonus. ;)

Tomorrow I'm going to be going to a spin class with my friend and I gotta tell ya girls, I'm scared! LOL I've never done a spin class--ever and I can't remember the last time I was on a bike! Haha, so this should be interesting and depending on how clumsy I am--quite a show as well. ;) Wish me luck!

I'll be back later to update my exercise. :)

Delphi 05-09-2009 06:52 PM

@ fullsteamahead ~ I absolutely love it. The tennis I really like. I couldn't stop playing it. I was all over my living room trying to hit that ball :lol: Good stuff! Not much of a work out but definitely something to get the heart pumping. Definitely looking forward to unlocking some more modes on the Wii Fit though. How do you enter your weight for your clothing? I went with light, but now that I think about it, my clothes don't weight one pound..what the hay is up with that? :lol:

crazymomma ~ good luck with the spinning class, let us know how it went. :)

Jacqui D ~ It did, it really did..my day simply doesn't start right without that routine in the morning. But I may just take every Friday off though, I know my body needs a break from time to time.

Jacqui_D 05-09-2009 07:46 PM

FSA, I know, lol! That red "Met Goal!!" is like a getting a gold star on your paper when you were a school kid! :lol:

CMof4, I've made the change in your strength training goal!! Yes, 4 times a week is a little much for strength training!! :lifter:

Delphi, I think taking a day off each week is a great idea! I considered that for this month when I was making my exercise goal, but I was not secure enough in my commitment to exercise yet to trust myself, so I decided against it. I know I can control my "all-or-nothing" thinking when I am truly committed to something, but since I am relatively new to regular exercise, I think the more exercise I do right now, the more committed I'll feel toward it, and eventually I'll feel safe enough to take a day off each week, knowing I'll return to it without a problem. So, maybe next month...or maybe not, lol!! We'll see! :exercise:
