NSM, it is HOT here too!! Thank goodness for the YMCA's air conditioning, lol!

Delphi, I wondered about your change in pics so often! I figured it was just a natural "woman" thing, you know like changing clothes or changing purses, lol! Now, that I know the criteria, I understand, because you drop lbs left and right! And your pics are all so pretty, so keep 'em coming!

June 1--60 min on recumbent bike
June 2--60 min strength training; 30 min walking

All my complaining about it being too hot outside and then I get a call that I need to go drop off some papers and what did I do? well... I walked! It was a good walk, but at times I felt like a was going to burn to a crisp under the sun LOL

June 1: EA Active Workout 22 min. + 30 min free step = 52 min.
June 2: EA Active Workout 24 min. + 30 min. walk = 54 min.

Congrats to all those who got in those "hot" walks today. I got in NO excersize today...other than shopping. I was sooo tired this morning that i skipped kickboxing today. Then, i was so busy out getting ready for my dd's 18th bday, that i didn't get to go to the gym this afternoon either. Then... we took her out to eat at an all you can eat chinese restraunt and i ate WAY too much. And to top it all off...we came home and had ice cream cake.

But...tomorrow is a new day and i will be excersizing HARD!!!! I WILL work off all this food before it attaches to my waistline.

I ran 2 miles today, and wow, did they feel loooong. I also played some tennis and did some push-ups, sit-ups etc. All in all, a good day. 7.2 out of the 40 miles I want to put in before I go to Alaska.

Jacqui, I took my new avatar with the camera that's on my computer, so I can't really claim any credit for it...it's also nearly a year old, but my old avatar picture was nearly 4 years old...clearly, change is something I do slowly ; )

Lewisempire, I hope you feel better soon!

Great job everyone! Keep up the good work.

Got the husband to the gym today! We went to the location closer to our house, and I just did NOT like being there! The one I've been going to the last 2 weeks is brand new, much more open and has fewer people.

I only did half a mile on the treadmill today because DH couldn't hold out longer. I think if I can get him back in the gym Thursday (he agreed to go to the new location), I can finish my mile for the week and get the 5th in this weekend.

I still got in my weight in. I wouldn't let DH give up before I was done with the machines that I wanted to do. I skipped one, but I did a different arm thing that I hadn't done before. Yay me!

Wow -- Delphi --you ARE the Mistress of Exercise! Impressive.
I did my 40 minutes of biking and rowing in the gym just now, and am feeling pretty hungry.

What an amazing list of action women on this thread. I am filled with aspiration, and death to depression!
