I like to do cardio and strength, but I need to find a way to use cardio & strength to clean my house and gets points toward challenges. I'd be more motivated to do my Spring cleaning...oops, Spring is gone isn't it. Well, Autumn cleaning.
Now, if I get on my hands and knees and clean my tile and grout, can that be cardio? We have tile in our kitchen, dining room and living room. I'm sure I'd be getting my heart rate up, because I'd be hurrying to get it done before mealtime or whatever plans we have for the day.
Anyhow, that's what I'm working on. Hey! My yard needs racked. I feed our squirrels and they make an awful mess of peanut shells & corn under the tree, needs racked and put in garbage can.
Oh well, I'll work on it. Any ideas welcomed. It's too bad I need this motivation to do everyday chores. When will I ever grow up? I'd do it for chocolate!!
Someone did give me ideas about squats while cleaning my oven so that will go on my list. Get some exercise while working. I really need to work on my floppy triceps. Now what housework works on those? I made a goal to get in shape for my next trip up north to Ohio, maybe in April.

Reading the minutes of members on my BLC#8 team has inspired me to better myself. I need to put more effort into my fitness routine. I'm making a new routine. Three separate strength routines for Mon, Wed, & Fri. BEside taking advantage of all my equipment: treadmill, stepper, stationary bike, Body By Jake, Thigh Master and TrimRider. Also, my Zumba class.
I know I'll never come close to MrsMelvin1 but I can try my best to come halfway there.
Since I've gone off my Lipitor, I need to keep up the exercies and eating healthy, if I want to stay off the med. I have bloodwork in Dec. so I've got to be good for the next month.
I need to be more involved with my teams. At least the ones that are active, but not too many teams that I can't keep up with their challenges.
One of my favorite teams isn't as active this time around so I may have to jump ship next time around.
This is my best week ever. Of course working at church for Trunk or Treat and yesterday's time has put me there. I can't match this again. Not to be negative, I just won't have the opportunities that I had this past week.
Well, guess that is it.

I think I'm losing inches. At least when I cross my arms I can feel they are smaller...at least the bicep side. The triceps side still flaps in the wind. Pants are fitting looser. Unfortunately, so does my bra, when I wear one. (rarely-it's nice to be small in some cases. I hate bras). I'm glad I bought my Body By Jake for hip & thigh way back when.
If I can keep up my personal challenges on abs, arms, legs & my own 5 min cardio routine, I can make significant progress. Yay!!

I 've decided not to keep track of my exercise on the fitness, except enough to get the sparkpoints. My computer is so slow that it takes forever to post anything. Does anyone else have that problem? Someone said it was because I have too much on SP and lots of e-mail from other screen names other than SP.
I keep track of all my exercises in a notebook and what to post on each team.
Now I have a Wii so I'll have lots more cardio.
It gets so late doing posting that I get to bed late anyhow. I don't get a chance to post on SP fitness each time I do something. At least it is all in my notebook.

I'm revising this blog about my piddily 210 minutes yesterday. After seeing what others have posted, I feel like a beginner.
I have to make a good showing on the virtual walk; I'm so far behind. I need to get closer to my partner, who is a few cities away. Besides, I have to wear off that cheesecake and milk shake from last week. lol
Also, I want to be 100 or 99lbs by the time to go to my next doctor's appt later this month. I seem to be on an upperward gain.
Now, if I can just keep my will power and not pig out when I'm with other people.
30 minutes was housecleaning...should have used the whole 210 min as housecleaning. It would be spic&span...Nah, there's no fun in that.
If anyone has digital tv, you can get On Demand, they have a lot of different exercises.
