Hi Jacqui-You are so sweet. Actually you did not miss my goals. I just decided yesterday. Sorry I have not been posting much but things have gotten kinda busy lately with end of the school year. It is nice having an exercise goal for the month. I never meet my weight loss goals so hopefully I can achieve the exercise goal!

Strawberryeyes, welcome! I've added you to the list! :welcome2:

Terapet, oh whew! So I'm not going senile after all, lol! :dizzy: I just know you're going to make your exercise goal!! You have control over it (just look at you go!) unlike with weight, where you do have control, but you have to wait for your metabolism to cooperate, lol! But I bet you'll lose those 3 lbs too with all that exercise!! :exercise:

Fressca, great job!!! :carrot: Keep it up chickie!!

Delphi, WTG on the jogging!! Woohoo! You go girl! :cp:

CMof4 and Joci, you are doing great!! :spin:

Hi to all our ladies!! :wave: Keep up the good work!!

I got my 30 min walk in today. My hubby had the day off and we walked our English mastiff (or rather, our mastiff walked us!) But I am still trying to decide if doing strength training with TOM today is a good idea or if I should just wait until tomorrow. I really want to do it today. My body doesn't share my enthusiasm about it yet though, lol! I guess we'll see!

  • May 1st - Did full body circuit at gym...took an hour and a half.
  • May 2nd - 1 hr of pilates, 20 min of Arc Trainer and 15 min of treadmill (pilates was the only thing on my original schedule)
  • May 3rd - Usually a rest day, but I feel like I will want to do SOMETHING later. Weather isn't supposed to be great so a walk with the dogs might not be doable. Any suggestions for something easy?
  • May 4th - 15 min Arc Trainer, 12 min Treadmill
  • May 5th - 10 min Arc Trainer, 30 min weight lifting, 15 min bike
  • May 6th -Wasn't as intense as I would have liked because of TOM and being tired..But still did, 10 Min Arc Trainer, 40 min upper body

I am a little under two weeks into this and my body was a little sore on the treadmill this morning. I think I need to schedule a day off, but I don't want to. :) So, I think I'll take tomorrow off and let my body repair itself. You ladies have a superb day. :)

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 5--30 minutes uphill on the treadmill [weight training 20 reps each]
May 6--30 minutes on the treadmill [20 reps w/magic circle] [weight training-triceps]
May 7--30 minutes uphill on the treadmill

Well, I am gonna hop on here and set my goal for exercise 6 days a week. I'm not setting a minute/mile goal this month, but hope just keeping track of days will keep me on-track with the time I have. So far, so good.

Jacqui-You are right about exercise being the one aspect I can control successfully. I had not thought of it that way. Unfortunately, I am a person who thrives on routine and my Y schedule is one of the few routine aspects of my life right now. Anyway, exercise is a great thing to latch on to for a stressed out, anxious person like myself. Right now I am just trying to keep up with all my daughters stuff: prom, band banquet, AP tests, graduation party and graduation. Directly after that we have to take a 2000 mile round car trip to Nebraska for a wedding. Upon our return, we have to attend orientation for DD college. Plus my husband wants to redo the kitchen floor in time for the graduation party. (I think it is too late for that one.)I hate picking out tile. Oh and of course I should be looking for a new job.Wow, I have probably gone on too long about this. Well, I am looking forward to another 2 hour escape to the Y this evening although I should probably keep it to one hour.

Jacqui_D 05-07-2009 08:44 PM

Hi Ladies! :wave: One week down and everyone has done so well! Tomorrow starts a new week!! Let's do it! :carrot:

Ms_P, I've added you to the list!

Delphi, that may not be a bad idea if you are feeling sore. You don't want to end up hurting yourself so that you can't exercise! It's best to let your muscles heal.

Terapet, I feel for you! :hug: Oh my, that is stressful! I went through all that two years in a row, first with my son and then with my daughter. You'd think the son's prom wouldn't be as stressful and it wasn't, only my daughter was going to prom that year too! So I completely understand!! You may have to tell your DH that no one's going to be looking at the floor at the grad party. They'll all be chatting up a storm and looking at photos, etc. Anything you can do to reduce your stress right now is a good thing! And you are doing a great job with your exercise!! You really are! :)

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!
