  • My exercise goal for the rest of the month starts tomorrow: Get back to the gym! I always avoid the gym in January, it's so darn crowded...but thins out again around February. I have to grin and bear the crowd and just go. I will get up early to do so tomorrow, I haven't been since December!

    I made a goal to do yoga every day and so far have been right on track Will continue to do it daily, it really makes my body feel good!

  • We are halfway through the month and I'm nearly halfway there. That's great, but I realized at this rate I won't earn any extra $.

    My goal for January is to complete a total of 15 workouts (averaging 3 per week, but allowing flexibility if needed). I also have built in a little incentive for myself if I meet my challenge ($40 to buy books), with the potential to earn extra for each additional workout completed ($5 extra per workout).

    1- 1/2/14, 20 minutes walking 3.5 mph, 30 minutes strength training
    2- 1/3/14, 60 minutes walking on treadmill (10 3.5 mph, 50 3.0 mph)
    3- 1/4/14, 60 minute brisk walk at the lake
    4- 1/5/14, 60 minute brisk night walk
    5- 1/7/14, 45 minutes strength training
    6- 1/13/14, 60 minutes strength trainjng

  • Great going everyone

    I managed getting to the gym today:
    30 minutes elliptical
    30 minutes treadmill (actually jogged 10 minutes, but man...heartburn, will have to tone it down tomorrow to a speed walk)
    45 minutes weight training and abs
    15 minutes stretch

    I started the day with a 45 minute hip-opening yoga routine that I found online, excellent and easy to follow!
