Yeah it is Friday! I feel so energetic in the morning. I wish I was that way in the evening. Hopefully this weekend is when I get my act together. I need to get my house clean and plan the graduation party (nothing like waiting until the last minute) and commit to some stupid tile for the floor. It is so expensive! The good part is if I get all that done I won't need to worry about it anymore. Duh!!!

It looks like we are are doing great for the first week. I enjoy reading the diffent workouts.

Jacqui-Thanks for the How are you liking the strength training. You use machines right? I did that a number of years ago. It is fun to see the improvement over time. Plus, I am really a weakling if I don't formally work out. Probably due to my desk job and my penchant for reading and watching TV.

Happy Brand New Week of May ladies!! You ROCKED the first week!! Keep it up!! Woohoo!!!

Terapet, I am loving the strength training! Thanks for asking! Yes, I use the machines, and I have a regular little routine with them now, alternating between leg, arm, waist, chest, and back ones. I've figured out how much weight I'm good with right now and I do 5 sets of 8 reps with each. As it get easier with the weights I'm using now, I'll test at the higher weights. The lowest weight I use now is for a machine that is for the chest in which you bring your elbows together. I cannot do more than 10 lbs with that right now, which is unfortunate since the chest is where I seem to be losing a lot of weight and I could use the help, lol! The most weight I am doing right now is 80 lbs on a leg press machine. Overall, I really am enjoying the strength training and I never thought I would because I thought I didn't like to sweat, lol! I have found it feels really good and makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something!

Delphi, I think that's a smart move! Good for you in recognizing what is best for your body. Isn't that the lesson of balance we're all trying to learn?!

Hi Lewis, Joci, FSA! You girls are doing great!

Well at my size DDR can be quite challenging especially when you get past the basic steps. But I simply do the basic steps and that is enough to get my heart pumping and me sweating. I have it for the 360 so I don't know if the port for the Wii is any different then the one for the xbox though. Is it fun? Sure it is, but not something that I would daily, but to add something different to your routine, I think it would be great.

I should be getting a Wii in July and I am totally stoked!! By that time I'm gonna need a little variety in my routine as well...plus the online for the Wii is free.

You are most certainly correct and I'm glad I'm finally finding it. You're doing great on your exercise..I'm glad to hear you are enjoying it as well, that definitely helps tremendously.

I need a kick in the butt!!
On Wed. I only walked for about 25 min. and yesterday I could not get myself together to do anything. I am feeling blah because of TOM, but that's not a good enough excuse.
I will count my weeks from Mon-Sun, so I still have a couple of days to make up for yesterday, but only if I actually get my butt moving!

Okay, NewShinyMe, c'mon girl!! We all have to go through TOM, and we can't use that as an excuse for days on end, so get yourself in gear and get to exercising! Your 25 minutes of walking was good! Yesterday, hmm, not so much, lol! But like you said, if you are counting Mon-Sun, you have today, tomorrow, and Sunday to get the equivalent of this week's minutes in! At the end of the month, I put MET GOAL!! next to everyone's name on the list who met their monthly goal!! That's not always possible for the weight loss list, but in this list, it's totally within your control! And we want to see MET GOAL!! next to your name!!! So GET MOVING, girl!! Got it?!

Gotta love some tough love!

Ditto what Jacqui said, this is totally in your hands--how many things can you say you have this much control over? I know TOM is a pita, but I KNOW you can muster up the energy to get some exercising in! Plus, exercising helps to alleviate cramps...well, so they say anyway. Come on, you can do this!!!
