20 minutes walking at work and 35 minutes candlelight yoga= 2342 + 20 + 35=2397

with the first week of my new job just about under my belt...I'm very very happy...super great people and I'm able to walk at work weather permitting of course...I bring my lunch so daytime snacking isn't an issue and I have 2-3 bottles of water while i'm there which is awesome but I have learned that yoga in the morning is not for me..to be able to do it I literally need to get started five minutes after I get up and the problem I've found is I'm so stiff I don't even get to enjoy it and I can't breathe deeply and really stretch out...so that is a no go....yoga is back at night...that is what works for me and for my body but I do need to bring my weights and cardio in during the weeknights...I am doing things which is great and I realize I need to cut myself a little slack...I will not adjust to a new schedule in a week

Wow what a difference life makes when you are not working six days a week...had a great morning with the hubby and daughter...went to a rummage sale and then hit up good will...ran some errands and then had a healthy breakfast at Einstein bagels....Walked yesterday at work but spent the night just resting which was well deserved...today I'm looking to do around 2 or 3 sessions of yoga to be stretched out for my attempt to pre-walk our 5K...will add in yesterdays time and post today's time later

2397 + 20 minutes walking at lunch=2417

well I've been away for a few days....still doing everything I should be just had an emotional day wednesday...a car came into our lobby at work and literally left a gaping hole in the building...it was crazy...glad it wasn't going faster and thankful there were items in our lobby to slow it down because I could have really been seriously hurt...I was in the cars direct path

Tomorrow is weigh/measurement day....I'm proud of what I've been doing and do really feel good about myself so I must remember that numbers don't define who I am

40 minutes walking ( 2 20 min lunchtime walks thurs and fri) and 30 minutes joy of yoga + 2692=2762

have already made the monthly goal...today clocks me in at 1440 minutes for feb

Hello! My name is April and I have decided to join this thread to contribute to sweetcakes736, who is my mother and truly an inspiration. She has worked really hard and has dedicated herself to bettering her health and quite frankly with all the weight she has lost, looks pretty damn good.

Of all the things I have achieved in my life, fitness and exercise was something that I always failed at, but after some soul searching I finally realized that I was sabotaging my own plans! I wasn't coming to terms with the horribly body image issues I was facing and instead would create insane regimens that no one could adhere to without hurting themselves. These intense exercise routines were my way of punishing myself for 'letting myself go' and they would get more intense if I even dared to look at a weight scale. Scales and I have a very bad relationship, so I have changed the way I am looking at health and fitness! I made myself a plan which includes walking once in the morning, twice while I am at work during the week Mon-Thurs, and once in the evenings. So far I have been doing pretty good and after this I am going to then fill these blocks of time with cardio fitness over the summer. I am looking at biking and swimming currently, but I am open to other options. The last step in my plan, thus far, is that I will be attending classes at a fitness training facility in the fall in the mornings before I go to work. I am pretty positive about everything right now and I am excited for a new me at the end of this year.

Since me and the scale are adversaries, I have decided not to use one until the fall. Even so, my ultimate weight loss goal is about 180-190lb, I honestly just want to fit into size 14 clothes again (currently I am a 18-20).

Exercise today: Walked in the morning and afternoon (ate too much to walk tonight )

About 30 minutes total so I guess we can count that towards March?

30 minutes for the month of march.
