NSM, so funny!

Lewis, you are prettier than Snow White!! Look at you! Radiant!

Ican, I can NOT believe you took that photo with a computer camera!! I could have sworn it was intentional with the way you are off to one side in the foreground and are being balanced out by the window and lamp in the background! And the color and shadowing! As for the age, you're like me, lol! Actually, I'm one of those to stay out of photos so it's hard to find a recent photo of me! (And believe it or not, I used to be a calendar girl! Lol!) Maybe after I lose weight, I won't be so camera shy...maybe.

Gatorgirl, what time did you go to the gym? I once went at night...ugh...never again if I can help it! I don't mind going to the pool that late, but not to the weight machines. I felt like I was at a bar with all the flirting going on around me at that time, lol!

Lumi, back on the wagon, girlie! One day like that for special occasions now and then won't hurt, but let us know how you do today! We're rooting for ya!

Glutio, oh, that's great that your DH did go with you! And that now he's going to go to the gym you prefer! Good job!

Yay!! Good for you RubyJan!! And yes, Delphi does not fool around with her exercise and weight loss! That girl's on a mission!

Delphi, I wish I knew your secret!! Must be all that positive thinking!!

Well, ladies, I'm off the the gym! Have a great morning and a great day!!

Thanks Jan and Jacqui, it's all mind over matter as far as I'm concerned! I've always carried my weight well, but just got to the point where I simply didn't care. I never leave the house, so there was no need to impress anyone. But, one day, I just said, let's do this and I'm not gonna stop. I will be healthy and I will lose this weight come **** or highwater.

Yay! I caught up on posts AND I'm online for real...at "home" (my IL's) so I can keep up with you amazing women! Maybe...

I'm counting today as my first day of the month. I was very active the last few days, but not with formal exercise. I still lost a bit, but the month officially begins for me today!

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

Happy June Everybody,

I'm back from my trip for the wedding. It was a long car ride but a beautiful wedding. I did manage to exercise while I was gone so I did make my 1800 minutes last month. I am ready for a change now. 1800 minutes was a lot of time to spend at the Y. I am thinking of using the treadmill before work instead and taking a break from all the classes. That may not be the best idea though. So I guess I will set a goal of 30 miles on the treadmill and see what happens.

June 1 0
June 2 2.25 miles

Jacqui- I got there around 7. Every treadmill and elliptical was full. Mostly all the weight machines were full. I was lucky that I got my favorite bike (It has a great view of all the weight machines. I like to people watch and watching guys lift weights is never a bad thing. ). There were just SO many people. I wouldn't mind the flirting if I looked a little cuter, but I don't tend to look my best while I'm at the gym. lol. I think I am going to get sucked into going at that time again today. I have another test tonight, so I have put off going to the gym until its over. If the test gets out later than I might not get to the gym till 8pm. Maybe there will be less people there then. This will be my 3rd day in a row going. That is quite good for me. I am going to try to make it a habit of going 4-5 times each week.

Wow - everyone's doing great. After a shaky start to the week (combination of travel, work and sniffles) I made it down to the gym tonight and got in my cardio and toning which means I'm still on track for my June goals. Woo hoo! Very proud of myself because I almost talked myself out of going several times today

Squeeze, great job!! The only way to get your metabolism to run more efficiently is to build some muscle, and the only way to do that is to exercise! Talking yourself out of exercising is a big here! It will always be easy to talk ourselves out of exercising, so we can't go by willpower. We have to go by commitment. We can't judge by what we "feel" like doing. We have to judge by what we "know" we should do, so great job on doing the right thing chickie!! I'll be putting a red MET GOAL!! by your name yet!!

Gator, well, you are young and beautiful, so you should be flirted with at the gym, lol! I hope your tests went well for you!!

Delphi, I see you changed your pic! You must have dropped some more lbs!!

Look at all you ladies go!! GREAT job!!!

Hubby decided to work from home today because he's feeling a bit sick, so I haven't had much computer time to catch up with things. So only a quick update for me here. I'll do personals on the other thread.

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.
June 3: WL Yoga and abs = 45 min.
