June 1 - 2 walks, 40 minutes exercise - GOAL MET
June 2 - 2 walks, 30 minutes exercise - GOAL MET
June 3 - 2 walks, 40 minutes exercise - GOAL MET

I am going to modify my goal so that I only do the work-out 6 days a week. I think I'll need a day of rest. But I'll still walk twice on my rest day.

Day 3! I got off work a little early to try out an Akido class at the dojo next to the gym I don't really like. A friend of mine is taking some stick fighting class there, and we talked to her after DH and I gym'd yesterday. Her friend teaches the Akido class and said I should come today if I could. Magically, I was able to. I had a *lot* of fun! They also have fitness kickboxing classes several times a week, so I'm thinking about checking one of those out to see if I want to sign up to kick my own ***.

After akido, as much as I was tempted to just go home, I made myself go back to the gym and his the treadmill! I got my full mile in, too!! YAYAYAYAY

Hey everyone,

Y'all have been so nice and so encouraging!

. . . So I felt it only right that I let y'all know that I've decided to drop out of this challenge, and also the weight loss challenge. I'm still doing well with both my weight loss and my exercise and there's no big issue going on; it's more along the lines learning what works best for me and what doesn't work very well for me.

Thank you all, and I wish all of you well.

Well, I managed to force myself to go to the gym tonight even though it was the dreaded busy time. I went a little later so it wasn't quite as crowded, but still very busy. I managed to do my bike workout and I found an open elliptical after that. This challenge is keeping me accountable. I love it!

June 3~ 8 miles stationary bike, 2 miles elliptical
Total so far: 28 miles

Glutio and Gator, GREAT job getting to the gym even when it would have been easier not to go!! And I agree, Gator, this thread does hold you accountable, which is just what I need, lol!!

SharMar, I dropped you a line on the other thread! Take care, now!

Pas, good idea! If you find you want to change the walking to 6 days a week too, just let me know and I'll change it on the list! I wish I had been as smart as you, last month! If I had, I would have made goal on my walking! I knew I wanted a day off, but I was too nervous about taking it off just yet. As it turned out, I missed one day of walking the entire month and ended up not making that goal because of it. So if you want a day off completely, even though you may end up walking every single day anyway, like I said, just let me know!

Ladies, you're doing great! Keep it up!!

I'm trying to be good and do my exercise right after my hubby leaves for work in the a.m. So far it has been working for the past week or so. It's only tricky on the weekends. Anyway, I was down over a pound this morning, so I feel super about my WW weigh-in tonight. After weigh-in, I am going to splurge a bit and share a DQ Blizzard with my DH since I've been craving it for a few days. YUM! All in moderation, of course!

6/3: 68 minutes (5 miles WAH), 30 min WiiFit (incl. 10 Min SuperHula!!)
6/4: 38 minutes (3 miles WAH)

6/1- 3 mile walk
6/2- 1 mile walk
6/3- 0.5 mile Nordic track, Weights

good morning girls, I have been trying to keep up with everyone's news, but have been reluctant to post because i was under the influence! Nyquil does crazy things to me, but at least it works! I did manage to force myself into a gentle workout yesterday, otherwise, I slept all day. I am feeling a little better today energywise, NOW if I could just breathe through my nose!! Hahaha!

Crazymama of 4- I have also tried the HIIT routine with my nordic track. It kicks my butt!!! but I burn a lot of calories according to my HR monitor. Good luck with it!

Jaqui D- thankyou for the complement, I have always thought I was really a princess swept away at birth to my humble life I am forced to live now! HAha!

To the rest of you girls, You are rockin! Keep up the good work!
