Okay Jacqui, I figured out my goals!

Strength Training 3X a week
Cardio at least 3X a week (I'm going to try the high intensitiy interval training cardio)
Put my exercise ball to use

Of course I'll probably end up doing more cardio or switching things around, but for now, these are my Official Goals.

Hi I"m new to these forums, and am looking forward to becoming as healthy as possible.

My exercise goal for the month of June is to walk a total of 35 miles.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays I'm meeting one (possibly a few more) of my friends at a park and we'll walk around it twice. That'll be 2 miles.

On Monday, Wednesday and Friday I'll be walking around my block, which is 1 mile.

I enjoy walking, but it's been a long time since I've done it regularly, so I want to work up to doing at least 2 miles 5 days a week. I don't want to overwhelm myself with a big goal the first month I'm getting back on track, so 35 miles it is

GypsyRose, I've added you to the list! I think that's a great goal! I agree, it's best to start off at a pace that you think you can handle; otherwise, especially if you're not used to exercising, you might throw in the towel, and we can't let you throw in the towel! Good luck!

SharMar, you are so welcome!

Woo hoo! Another month is upon us! Welcome to all the newbies yet again, I look forward to getting to know you all!

Okee dokee, here goes:

June 1st ~ Upper Body Strength Training


Tomorrow I'm going to try my hand at HIIT! I posted a question on the sister thread, and I'm going to post here since this is where I should have posted it. So please excuse the double post...

Okay, I've got a question for the girls who do HIIT workouts. (High Intensity Interval Training) I'm really looking at this as my new cardio workout for this month. I've read that you only do it 3 times a week and just curious if anyone disagrees with that? Also, any helpful websites, books, etc. on the topic? I found a couple websites and even found some workouts--I plan on starting tomorrow--eek! I've read that treadmills aren't good for this kind of workout as they're too slow to increase and decrease, so that means that I'll be venturing outside...in public...where people can actually SEE me in all my huffing and puffing glory. It should be quite a show.


Okay girls, gotta run! Have a great day!!

Welcome Dolly and Pas!! I've added you to the list! So glad to have you! Good luck!

Dolly, as long as it's not July, it's not too late to join, lol!

Pas, the 30 minutes of exercise, is that in addition to your two walks a day or is that including your 2 walks? I just want to make sure I get it right on the list! I don't want it to read as more or less than you intend for it to be! BTW, I love your avatar pic! Is that your kitty?

Well, I was going to go do strength training today, but I got a late start this morning, so I'll save it for tomorrow, and go Tu-Th-SA this week. That way I can get earlier tomorrow morning, and I'll just start with my 60 minutes of exercise today. It's storming outside, and the mastiffs are scared and pacing back and forth, and I'm think "not a good time to leave them," so I'll just stay here and ride my bike instead of going to the gym. I haven't watched tv in a week, so I'll just flip on the tube and watch some of my DVR'ed shows as I ride my bike. I hope my electricity doesn't go out! That would only give me about an hour or so of battery on my laptop! Incredibly, it was bright and sunny an hour ago!!!

Yay June! I'm so excited to work on my goals. This is my first real month with exercise goals, and I'm totally excited! I go to the gym after work, and on Mondays, I have WW weigh in after the gym. I may not post my successes until the following morning.

After 3 days away from the gym, though, I am excited to get back in there. I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy feeling like I've been doing something for myself. An additional goal this month is to try to get my husband to join me twice a week, but that won't impact my exercise!

Welcome to the exercise thread, Blondie32! So glad you're joining us! It looks like you are a serious exerciser like some of our other ladies here! Me, not so much, lol, but hey, I'm doing it, because it's good for me, and that's what counts! I'm more like you, Glutio, I don't do it because I enjoy it; I do it because it makes me feel good afterward, and because I want to be healthy! We don't have to love it; we just need to get it done!
