A Good Kind of Tired

Wednesday, October 08, 2008

Today I did 80 minutes of water aerobics with water weights and 60 minutes of aqua jogging. After that, I did 5 weight machines. On the way home from the gym, I walked up and down every isle in the grocery store for 30 minutes and finished up with a 10 minute little walk when I got home. I don't know where I'm getting all of this energy!

I'm feeling pretty good sitting here as I write this at 9:30 at night. I hope I can move tomorrow morning. It would be a drag to be stiff when I get to the gym!
I hope I'm tired enough to get a good 8 hours of sleep tonight.

Reflection First Week of Halloween Challenge

Sunday, October 05, 2008

This has been an interesting week for me. It looks like my weight is finally dropping a few pounds and suddenly I'm feeling much more confident about me.
I've been doing 60+ minutes a day of cardio instead of the 30-45 minutes I was previously doing. I have more stamina too. I've also become a walking/talking advertisement for Spark People. I've convinced at least 6 people to try it this week. (Hopefully I wasn't too obnoxious in my enthusiasm)

Some of my new habits are becoming more comfortable and ingrained in my life. I'm noticing that since eating more healthfully and doing regular exercise, I feel better.

Look out week 2, here I come.

The Orange Jack-O-Lanterns are a force to be reckoned with!!!

  


Tired but feeling healthy

Saturday, October 04, 2008

This week I tried to rev up my cardio a bit to see what effect it would have on my weight loss. So far I've lost 2 pounds!!! I'm pretty tired but I feel okay.
I've noticed a change in my balance, endurance and the definition in my arms!
I actually have muscles in my arms that you can see!!! Wa-hoo!!!

  


Three Goals For October

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

For the month of October I'm going to try to do these 3 things:

First I'm going to work on my abs but not overdo it because of my spinal problems. I will use moderation.

Second I'm going to try to increase aerobic activity on the weekends without being compulsive about it. I will use moderation.

Last I'm going to make an effort to see if I can do some lunges. (I will be careful because of my knee replacement. ) If I can only do 6-8 by the end of the month, I will be satisfied.

    Sounds like a plan! Kudos to you for coming up with such a great game plan! Be careful with those knees, you'll get there. You have a totally winning attitude, think where you'll be at this time next year! emoticon

It's a Good Day!

Saturday, September 27, 2008

Today I woke up and the sun was shining (it shines a lot here in Florida) and I felt great. My gym workout went smoothly. I did 50 minutes of cardio and all of my weight machines. Later my husband and I took a walk with our dogs. Then I took another short walk. I feel pumped!!! We went out for dinner and I stayed within my calorie range. Life is good!!! I'm thankful for such a spectacular day!
