Well, I didn't get away from the house today, but I substituted my 30-minute walk for 60 minutes on the recumbent bike. I should have done that on Sunday, but didn't think of it! I think my mind was too set on walking as part of my goal. Anyway, my daughter left about an hour ago with our other mastiff, so we'll see how the two new dogs do now!

Lewis, thank you for your support! :hug: Next month I'll get Met Goalfor sure!! :)

Wifey, GREAT job on the 75 min. run/powerwalk!! :running: WTG! :carrot:

Original goals....: Stick with exercise program set up with workout buddy; make sure daughter starts (and sticks with) boot camp starting May 19th

I have decided to only list current week as the posts are getting too long:
May 14th - 10 minutes Arc Trainer, 35 min weight training, 25 min bike
May 15th - 10 minute Arc Trainer - Total body circuit - 55 minutes
May 16th - 45 minutes Arc Trainer, 1 hour pilates
May 17th - 40 minutes pilates on my home machine
May 18th - 45 minutes Arc Trainer, 1 hour pilates
May 19th - 1 hour Boot Camp


So far so good with staying on plan and reaching my goals. I actually did MORE than I initially planned to. Boot camp started today and my daughter was at her dad's house....but she did manage to get herself up and to my house with 5 minutes to spare before we had to leave for the park. Boot camp was fun, very cold, and will be worth every penny!!! I know I will be sore tomorrow.

Lewisempire 05-19-2009 10:16 PM

HI girls, No Real exercise for me today....I did my usual parked far away, took the stairs, etc. but today, I decided to relax. Until work called this afternoon, so I did go in for a couple of hours, but nothing I will officially count.

Jacqui_D- When you get a chance, could you put my pretty red "goal met" next to my 50 miles. Thank you. I am glad you found an alternative for your exercising. How are those "pups" of yours?

Jaqui9999-Glad you enjoyed your day at boot camp. Is it all week long?

To everyone else: We are over half way through May, and I see some pretty impressive totals! I have my plan in place for exercising every morning on the cruise, I don't want to get left in the dust. Keep up the good work! See yall in the morning!!!!

Jacqui_D 05-20-2009 02:37 PM

Lewis, it's my pleasure!! :yay: Way to go, girlie!! :carrot: Wow! You just zipped through those miles this month!! :cp:

You know when I was at the gym today, it occurred to me that I set two exercise goals this month. Although I missed the walking one, I can still make the strength training one! So I still have a May goal to shoot for! Woohoo!! :)

My mastiffs did so well today! Well kinda...lol! I put them out back and when then the garbage truck came by, they tore up my screen door trying to get my attention to let them back in. But when I left them in the house for two hours to go to the gym, everything was intact when I came back!! Yay!! :spin:

Joci, your schedule of exercise and your bootcamp commitment are so impressive! I'm so proud of you! (And your daughter!) How long does the bootcamp last?

Hi to Lene and all our other ladies! :wave: I hope you're doing well!

Glad the dogs are doing good!! They can destroy things...My beagle still does sort of. She loves stuffed animals and I usually close the kids bedrooms doors but didn't one day cause I wanted to get fresh air in...don't you know that dog took stuffed animals from my daughter's room and put one in each of the other bedrooms. She was having a party while I was gone. See my response above about BC!!

On another note, does anyone subscribe to forums/threads and have it set so that they get an email when someone else posts right after them? I have that set and I am not getting emails...it's so frustrating!!!

Ms Perception 05-20-2009 03:50 PM

Lewisempire--Love your avatar...is it new or have I not been very observant?

Jacque9999--Sometimes the "instant" notification takes REALLY long and other times it is pretty instant. I don't know why, but that's what I've experienced.

All went well last night when we did pizza with friends...coulda been better, coulda been worse. I walked for 3 miles afterward to make sure it didn't kick my butt too bad! My weight barely fluctuated, so I'm happy for that. Plus, I did 2 exercise sessions yesterday as a result, so I can't complain.

Newshinyme 05-20-2009 10:00 PM

Looking good everyone!
Jacqui: Glad you remembered your other goal, you sounded kinda bummed about the walking one! Glad the doggies are doing better.
Jacquee: That bootcamp sounds like a good thing...I'd be terrified though LOL
Ms.P. : Glad to hear you survived pizza night.

I starting to think about upping the intensity of my workouts. I bought the new EA Active game but I haven't received it yet, so I will wait until I try it to see if that does the trick or if I have to whip out one of the BL DVDs.

I understand that however, I have not gotten an email notification in 2 days. There is something wrong.

Nothing to be scared about...I am paying her so if I stop and take a rest there really is nothing she can do. Actually I was looking forward to it for 2 months. Of course it is only day 2 so it could get scary!!!
