My own exercise show, huh? That's rich....I'd be more likely to have my own talk show with Dennis Miller style rants :-)

I'm not at goal yet, but hope to be by the end of september!!!!!!

Jazzercise last night.......it wasn't quite like I remember it as just way 'fun' It was more work, or maybe that's becuz it was 25 years and 30 pounds ago? I did keep up, it seemed alittle fast and jerky to me, but will keep going and see how it works out.
Will keep you posted........hugs

I walked 3.6 miles each Fri, Sat and Sun and even started doing a little jogging again. My intensity level was pretty low the last several weeks, so I decided to pick up the pace. It felt good! Walked 3.6 miles last night w/ DH, hope to jog a little more tonight.

Couldn't make Jazzercise last night, due to late meeting with Attorney at work....darn.
Has already decided that I need to kick my plan up a notch (slacking alittle like Jen..lol)
So I went home and went to our apartment gym. yeah the one I complained about cuz they don't open til 10am. I knew it was small, but to my enjoyment there was a little color tv in the corner. There was a treadmill, eliptical and recumbent bike, all programmable......whew-hoo......
Eliptical - 30 minutes
Recumbent Bike - 15 minutes
Treadmill - 15 minutes
I went home all sweaty and very happy to discover it was so convienent and enjoyable. I think I will use it on a regular basis. There was no one else in there so I got to control the romote AND I could of watched Lifetime is I wanted to.....lol
Flash to this a.m.
Gym - Treadmill 60 minutes at 4 instead of 45 minutes at 3.7 - I was a beautiful color red.....lol
Oh and Jen, I jogged for one minute (gotta start somewhere)........

One more item of interest. Remember when I went on and on how Michael Thruman taught about the "target heart rate - stored fat burning rate"? Well I have read enuf now and I take everything I said back.....Read many articles and posts on here, bottom line is calories in - calories out......the faster you work the more you burn.....
(Thank God, not too many people listen to me anyhow. Now, Michael Thurman is a whole nother story)......

Star - remember to stretch! Interesting what you posted about target heart rate -- I've seen it both ways- but most of what I've seen about fat burning zone was stuff published/or taped in the early 90s?

Put my first dollar in my Shoe Fund this morning! 30 minutes on the treadmill at 2.5-2.8 (this is a brisk walk for me and my shorty-short legs!) and 2% incline. Same planned for the rest of the week.
