Hi girls, a big :hug: to you all. Your all doing great. OMG, I'm lazy today (havn't slept that much past few days) and was thinking to take a day off, how the heck can I now? :lol: Your all so inspiring and I love it! It's cloudy today so it's a good day for the wii. I'll try and get some in.

Regarding the biggest Loser show, I havn't been watching it this round (though I love that show). Suprising about the mom and daughter. There was a pic of a woman on msn homepage yesterday, 48 and she lost over 100 lbs. Oh she looked fantasticcccccc !

The interval training or changing speeds on the treadmill (every single one of my mags had that sort of training on the treadmill). Like our Terapet said, I guess it blasts more calories and keeps the bod guessing. It's okay if you don't run. All the charts I saw suggessted (every few minutes following a warm up first) the hardest pace as being one that felt like you really had to push (or running if thats your thing, or speed walking as fast as you can manage). When I was doing the treadmill, I would change it up every few minutes....sometimes not though. I walk outdoors at even pace though it is suggested to change paces so it's something I should think about. THanks ladiesssssssssssss :)

MsP - I thought you were just real busy and could not post, gee girl! Well it does sound like you have been busy over there gardening, awesome exercise and by the sounds of it I bet the garden is looking divine :). Anyways, you have been doing terrific.....remember we are always here for you chicky.

Well, I should post my minutes and get a move on. Oh god, I don't feel like it! lol. I'm being a whiner today! Going to get in gear and get on the wii and I owe it completely to you gals, beleive me! Thanks girls, let's keep on tucking' :carrot::carrot::carrot: 5/1 -62 min. (45 min. wii aer., 17 min. u.b.s.t-upper bod strength training).

Hi ladies! Look at y'all go!!! Woohoo!! This morning during strength training, I upped the weight on a couple of my machines again! I'm now up to 110 lbs on a couple of the leg machines (and two days ago my pathetic little 10 lbs on the one chest machine moved up to 15 lbs, lol)! I tried to push some of the other machines too, but my body wasn't ready for it yet. I think I'm at my limit on some of the arm machines, not because of my muscles but because of my joints! But I'll keep testing them from time to time!

Yay! Another new week of May!! I hope everyone is fired up for it!!:woohoo:

May 1--Strength trained! Walked! May 2--Walked! May 3--Walked! May 4--Strength trained! Walked! May 5--Walked! May 6--Walked! May 7--Strength trained! Walked! WEEK 1--ALL EXERCISE IN! May 8--Walked!

Hi girls! just wanted to check in..... I went marathon shopping today. I found some great deals, did a lot of walking, but nothing i am considering exercise. I am planning to get up tomorrow, and get back at it. I will say, I am proud of myself for the amount of miles i got this week (26.9:o). We all did Exetremely well this week. I am going to exercise both days this weekend (just wanted to put it in writing so I will be committed.) Keep up the hard work girls, see you all in the other thread.

icandoallthings6613 05-16-2009 12:44 AM

Hello ladies!!

I haven't checked in in ages...my life is so hectic. I finished school (yay!!), gave a presentation at a conference about my thesis, wrapped up hiring season at my job, and then headed to the beach with my friends for a week of celebrations and fun. Now I've got a great tan, a new dress (size 10! smallest I've ever worn) and some new shoes and I'm graduating on Sunday morning! I'm very excited...maybe I'll upload a photo or two when I'm done.

Now, in the midst of this craziness, I have to admit that I haven't gotten in all the exercise I'd like. But I have done a good job of exercising when I can...I went running and walking a lot at the beach, and I've gotten back into my weight routine (though I'll have to find a new, non-school, i.e. no longer free, gym when I get home). I read through all of your posts and I'm so impressed with you ladies and your progress and accountability! You rock!!

I'll try to keep up, despite the business of my upcoming crosscountry move back home, and my sister's graduation and friends weddings. Wow. What a busy month May is!!

I've kept a rough estimate of my mileage since I last posted, and I'm confident I've gotten in 20+ miles. I'm going to stop distinguishing running and walking miles, but I'm still aiming at getting a 10k or 2 in...I've come close.

Total miles: 30. Left: 35. I'll do my best!
And I'll be back posting more regularly as soon as my life settles down a bit : ) Keep up the great work, all of you! xoxo
