HOLY CARP! I just did day one of the 30 day challenge on EA Active, and it kicked my BUTT!! My very wonderful DH was watching me get started and decided he was COLD and turned the air down! BOOOOO!

The one problem I have, other than not being able to lunge far enough to be recognized 8 times in a row, is that my thighs are huge. They give an option for is the thigh strap is too long but not if it's not long enough, so I had to do it more around my knee. Then, I had to take my pants off because it kept falling off while I was doing the initial running. I think I've sweat nearly as much doing this, though, and I do on my daily treadmilling.

DH was getting annoyed with my cussing at the tv, and he kept trying to tell me how I was doing the lunges wrong by not going down far enough. I kept snapping at him, mostly cause I was frustrated in general and having a hard time not falling on my ***. He's about to get started on his turn, though, so he's about to find out what it's all about. HAHAHAH!

TGirl, I hope your DD is feeling better! Your exercise looks great!!

Pas, Looking good on the exercise schedule!

Delphi, seeing your scheduled day off just reminded me that I have a scheduled day off for the first time since I started exercising!

Glutio, your story had me laughing! How did your DH do? Was it payback?

Dolliepie, good job getting your exercise in each day!

Lewis, I'm so glad you're feeling better! You'll do just fine on playing catch-up! You've proven time and again when you set your mind to something, you get it done!

Gator, wow, 40 miles already?! I'm Just loving that positive attitude! Keep on going, girl!

Ican, walking for 3.3 miles with an umbrella?! Now that's commitment! (And a workout for your arms holding that up!) I do hope the weather has improved for you!

FSA, I see you are right on track! Good job. chickie!

Gypsyrose, great job staying on track! It feels good, doesn't it?!

CMof4, so how is the HIIT going for you?! Looks like you're surviving!

Ladies, I have a new mantra as I exercise. As I walk, I say it to myself after every lap, and as I strength train, I say it under my breath instead of counting reps. It's "The more muscle I build, the more weight I'll lose." Since I do 5 sets of 8 reps each and there are ten words, it's more like "Th'more muscle I build, th'more weight I'll lose," lol! It keeps me going when I've done 3 sets and r-e-a-l-l-y don't want to do 2 more! I also upped my arm, chest and back weights today by 5 lbs!! I didn't think I'd be able to do that on the arm weights because of my wrists and elbows, but I kept testing it, and today I did it! It was the magic of the mantra, lol!

June 1--60 min on recumbent bike
June 2--60 min strength training; 30 min walking
June 3--30 min walking; 45 min on recumbent bike
June 4--60 min strength training; 30 min walking; 40 min walking
June 5--40 min walking; 20 min walking
June 6--60 minute strength training; 30 min walking; 40 min walking

DH did well on EA Active. He's not feeling the squats quite the way I am! I was better this morning, but I feel like cutting my legs off now!

I did 35 min on Wii Fit this morning before getting a pedicure with me WW buddy. We wound up walking from the nail place which is in a shopping center with a bunch of stuff to Target, Walgreens and Schnuck's. I did a loose measure on Google Maps and it says we walked about .6 miles! That makes up for not going to the gym today! Now I'm only 1.15 behind for the week, and my measuring of my neighborhood on Google Maps gives me a 1.16 miles area. We live in a very strange area called Winders Square because it's very windey. I may walk that path tomorrow if I don't go to the gym, but I may just go to the gym.

I did plan on doing another round on Active today, but after pedicures and walking, we met up with my friend's BF and were talking about getting sushi when the place nearby opened. I called DH to see if he wanted to meet us, and now we're at our friend's house watching the Wings game. I don't know when we'll be home, though.

Weekends are weird for me, especially not being home. I didn't have breakfast until noon and lunch until 5 so I'm only in about half my points for the day and very very full!

I like your mantra, Jacqui!! Anything that helps you push yourself...I have a bit of a "Little Engine that Could" refrain myself, especially when I'm running : )

The weather did improve somewhat today, so I played an hour and a half of tennis with my sister in the afternoon and then took a foggy 1-mile walk on the beach this evening. Total miles = 11.5.

Congrats on a great week 1, ladies! Reading your posts, I'm impressed with all the hard work everyone is doing!!

June 6th still am walking 2 kms and 10 min of cycling. Not to mention all the extra hours of gardening. I will be sore tomorrow. It might be just the day I take a rest.
Think of me tomorrow as I have a potluck/barbque to attend... Guess who's bringing the Potato Salad....LOL

I originally had decided to work out Monday through Friday and allow for rest on the weekends, but after this great week at the gym, today felt odd not going. I think I may just do a short workout tomorrow even though its not scheduled.

Hey girls! I really need to catch up on this thread more often!

Glutio~ I'm going to check out my AE Active today--you're scaring me a bit with your description of the 30 Day Challenge! Eek! Congrats on making it through day one!!

Jacqui~ great mantra! I like it better than my huffy-puffy mutterings of "Come on Sandye, get your butt moving *puff* you can *huff* do this! *huff-puff-cough* Geez! Just a few more you *puff-puff* whimp! *cough-sputter-puff*" :lmao: HIIT is going well! I am surviving! I started out the week a little rough with the whole stopping to get my heart back to normal and not feeling 100% after my cold, but by the end of the week I noticed my pace had improved dramatically! I run around my neighborhood and basically hit all the cul de sacs and then head back. On day one I did each cul de sac once and rounded mine at the end of the work out. By the end of the week I was doing some cud de sacs twice and taking detours because my pace was so much faster. Tuesday I start week 2 of the program in which I decrease my rest time after 'sprints' (or in my case wobbly jogging) from 90 seconds to 60. It's not much of a change, but I'm sure I'll feel it!!

Okay, here's my update:

June 1st ~ Upper Body ST'ing
June 2nd ~ HIIT
June 3rd ~ Lower Body ST'ing, 8 Min Abs (I think I forgot to add this before)
June 4th ~ HIIT
June 5th ~ Upper Body ST'ing
June 6th ~ HIIT
June 7th ~ Scheduled Day Off (what am I gunna do with myself?! )
End of Week One

Great news! I found a workout bench at a yard sale yesterday!!! I had been using my exercise ball to do my chest exercises and not really feeling them the way I know I should. So now I can do them properly!! Speaking of the ball--Jacqui, can you remove that from my goal list? I had only put it on there so I would remind myself to use it during my Upper Body ST'ing and now that I have the bench I don't need it as much right now. I'm still not strong enough to use it for ab work yet, so for now I'm just going to put it aside. Maybe next month I'll use it for my abs. Thanks so much!

Okay ladies, off to get some water and figure out what to do while everyone sleeps in. So odd this extra time I have...ooh! I can go get the paper and read it in silence!! What a novel idea!

Have a wonderful day girls!!

Glutio, smart on the Google maps! C'mon girlie, you can make the weekly goal of 5 miles, even if you have to split it into morning and evening sessions! You can do it!

Ican, your name in itself is a mantra, and believe me, after watching what you did last month with your senior thesis and all that running at the same time, I believe it!!

Pas, I agree! The mantra really does help! I was saying on the sister thread that I just have not enjoyed working out this week. I don't know what it is, but it's just been a chore every single day. If I had to rely on motivation, I would have given up, but thankfully, I am pushing through on commitment instead. And the mantra is such a little thing, but it helped me to keep the right mindset to get through those extra sets!

CMof4: Okay, the exercise ball is gone! You are doing incredibly on your HIIT! It's amazing that you can improve so much in one short week! Just think what you'll be doing by the end of the month! You're going to be so much stronger! Great job, girlie!! Keep us updated!

L2BH, Good luck on the BBQ!! It's the last day of the first week, so don't blow it, chickie!! C'mon now, you can do it!! Keep to small portions and no seconds, except maybe on any good veggies, and by "good" I don't mean to your tastebuds only, lol!

Joci, I was glad to read on the sister thread that your yard sale went well! It looks like I'll be having one in August, ugh. But on the bright side, it is a little extra cash!

Gator, I'm so glad you are enjoying your workouts! At least you have the weekends off for when you want them off, and anything extra you do is just of benefit to you!

Ladies, let's all finish the first week strong!
