That would be Sophie. My mother dresses her up in all kinds of outfits. The first pic, she has her "Chewy Viouton" bag. Don't know how to spell it cause mom never got me one :lol:

Hi Ladies! I did something spontaneous today! I had a bridal shower to go to, but before I left for it, my daughter called and asked when I would be home. I told her, and she said she was on her way home from college and she wanted us to go to a walking fundraiser that was taking place in Columbus for Crohn's Disease research. (Sadly, her bf lost his father to Crohn's Disease in December.) So when I got back from the bridal shower, we headed to Columbus, registered, met up with her bf's family, and walked! It was a good day of exercise for a good cause!

FSA! I think you'll like the steamer bags! They are so quick, easy, and convenient! They work so well for me because my DH and I sometimes eat different foods, and I can still cook what he likes and then cook exactly what I want in a jiffy! :)

I hope everyone has had a great day!!

May 1--Strength trained! Walked! May 2--Walked! May 3--Walked!

Hi Ladies,

Sorry I wasn't around for the start of the month. My DD had a bunch of Jazz band events on Friday and Saturday. It was a lot of fun and we were all sad to have it end but it is on to bigger things for DD. Thankfully I still managed to get a decent amount of exercise in. I am looking forward to getting a regular month of exercise in as best I can though I know I have several events on the horizon that will interfere. I need to get there for sanity's sake though.

Cakes-What is a 20/20/20? Sounds intriguing. Do you switch up cardio exercise? Does it make it any easier?

May 1st -0
May 2nd-75 minutes step class
May 3rd-75 minutes step class
May 4th
May 5th
May 6th
May 7th

Thanks for the kind words Jacqui and FSA. Just a quick post, still writing papers and played in my last handbell concert this morning before going to work tonight. Last week of classes this week (i.e. finals).

Managed a 4.5 mile run in the afternoon. Still feeling kind of cruddy (TOM approaches, I suspect) but the sun was out! Makes everything better.

4/2 - Ran 3.7 miles
4/3 Ran 4.5 miles

total/walk/run - 8.2/0/8.2

Hello everyone! I keep forgetting to get over here and post! I'm Sandye and this, along with the May weight loss challenge, are my first challenges here. I'm already having a ball and am so inspired by all the fantastic ladies here! I love how you all support each other and cheer each other on! :) Anyway, I'm still in the process of finding a routine that works for me and I'm toying with the idea of waking up early to do my cardio rather than wait until after the kids go to bed, however, doing it later is a nice way to end the day and such a great stress reliever, so I dunno...might just leave it. Not to mention I'm still getting woke up a few times a night by the kiddos and a girl's gotta get her beauty rest right? ;)

Here's what my month looks like so far:

May 1st - 30 Day Shred
May 2nd - Strength Training Lower Body (Includes Abs), 30 Mins Treadmill
May 3rd - 30 Day Shred
May 4th - Strength Training Upper Body (plan to do 30 Mins Treadmill after the kids go to bed--will update then :))
May 5th
May 6th
May 7th

Keep up the great work ladies! I look forward to getting to know you all!

Delphi 05-04-2009 10:25 AM

May 2--30 minutes on the treadmill and walked over a mile. Ya!!!
May 3--10 minute power walk on the treadmill and about an hour of playing Lips (which essentially is karaoke and lots of dancing)
May 4--20 minutes on the treadmill and weight training

Lewisempire 05-04-2009 11:44 AM

5/1 =2 miles nordic track!
5/2- lower body w.o. (1of 3)
5/3- 1 mile walking
5/4- 3.6 miles on Nordic track and upper body wts (2 of 3)
5/5
5/6
5/7

It feels good to be racking up some miles again!:carrot: I always feel like a lazy blob if I don't get some exercise in.

CrazyMamaof4, I don't know which way would work better, but you could always try to split the time, too. maybe 15 minutes in the am (boost your mood for the day) , and 20 at night (de-stress). I guess if you get the cardio in at all it is probably a miracle! You have a lot on your plate! Let us know how it goes!

Jacque9999 05-04-2009 12:34 PM

I will be doing my workout later...hoping to make it to 30-45 min on the Arc Trainer, if not 30 and then 15 on treadmill or bike(***). Then an hour of pilates. I'm actually really looking forward to it as yesterday was my day off!!

sotypical 05-04-2009 12:45 PM

Going to join you guys!

May 1: 65 min bike
May 2:
May 3:

May 4: 70 min bike


Total: 135 min

CakeBatter 05-04-2009 12:48 PM

I feel like such a lazy lima bean. I skipped the first three days in May. But my brak is over and I am back!!!! I am running 3- or 4 miles today after work....gotta play catch up!!!!

Sandye - Whatever you choose just make sure you like it and it is something you can stick with. Maybe you can break it up a little like Jacqui_D does. She is the master at this

Lewisempire - I thought you said you were relaxing. Looks like you have been working it out to me!!! WTG

Ican - Poor thing. You are still writing papers. I will be glad you can relax a little. WTG 4.5 miles in this morning. You rock!

jacqui_D - that was awesome! Spontaneous, for a good cause and you some got in some wonderful exercise, with your daughter. Can't get much better than that!!!

econ nerd 05-04-2009 01:05 PM

I didn't make in to post in the last couple days but I have been working on getting some exercise in.

May 1st - 20 minute walk
May 2nd - 45 minute walk
May 3rd - lots of walking - up hill too! We went to visit a friend in the hospital in a nearby town and after our visit we did a bunch of walking for the rest of the afternooon
May 4th - plan to walk home from worktoday - it's about one and a half miles. Today I also had some extra exercise - my students wrote their final exam this morning - and I spent a good part of the two hours going up and down the theatre stairs to answer their questions. And I also confirmed (again) that the students who ask the most questions sit at the back and alternate asking questions with ones at the front... It makes for a good workout. I have two more exams llike that - one tomorrow and Wednesday morning...
