Exercise Plan

Monday, August 23, 2010

OK, this is my plan for the next few days and I am making myself accountable to y'all! I go back to work tonight and that is always hard for me to get my fitness in so I have come up with a plan......as I stay with someone I work with and sleep during the day it is not always easy and that has been my excuse but NOT ANYMORE!
I have just opted for sparkpeople to make me my strength workout and I am printing off exercises for my workout so that I can still get them done when I am in Phoenix :) They are purely exercises with no equipment (Beginners Challenge) so that I can do them in my bedroom, empty patient room or bathroom - wherever!
So here goes........

    With me it is school. I am at work until 5 and then go to class at 6. I don't leave campus until almost 10pm. That is on Tuesday and Thursday. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I still walk with my daughter. Saturday and Sunday it seems to be harder for us to find the time. Especially lately. But we, too, will find a way!

A New Day!

Monday, August 23, 2010

Well it is Monday and it is a new day and a new week! I am hoping and planning for great things! I did not get to the lake yesterday so am planning on meeting my exercise goals today! I only got in 4841 steps :(
So it is 9.30am and I am just starting my day but I am working tonight and that will be the first of 3 nightshifts! Have my pedometer and we are ready to start the day! I am going to be going to Curves shortly. My daughter is wanting to have a lunchdate today - the high school here has an open campus (unless you are a freshman), she is a junior so we are going for lunch, I am going to be looking at nutritional facts before making my decision where to go....will let you know after lunch :) I am just so thrilled that she still likes to meet me for lunch and talk! She will be 16 in 8 days!
Will check in later

    Thanks everyone for your words of encouragement! I had lunch and when I got there, she had a friend coming with us too! I love that! Anyhow, we went to Arbys for lunch and I had researched my food first and I did well! I had the chicken ranch sandwhich and peach mandarin frui-tea and it was good! The girls had curly fries, but not one passed these lips!!
I am still on track for the day.......I will be having something light later before working tonight :) I have not got to Curves yet...I hate that they have started closing from 12-3pm as that is my best time to go! I am thinking of following Lexi's advice and getting a mini trampoline too!
See ya

    It is very good to spend time with your teenage daughter. That is such a tough age -- for both the teen and the parent!

    I can't do 10,000 steps, so I've been putting in what I can do and I raise it as I'm able. You are on the right track. Don't be discouraged!!

My Sunday

Sunday, August 22, 2010

I have had a productive day so far.....went to Sunday School and church today and got a great message at both places! In SS we are studying Acts and at church our sermon was based around Samson!
I also signed up for the Ladies Bible Study, we have been on vacation and restart Sept 16th for brunch! Gotta love how Baptist Churches can eat! LOL! We are going to be studying Esther with Beth Moore's study book! I can't wait! Last year we studied "LORD, Where are you when bad things happen" by Kay Arthur and that was great too!
I did some strength exercises this morning and will do some more here shortly, it is humid here today but once the temp cools later this evening I want to take a walk around the lake that we have here - it is so pretty! Hoping that I get to fit it in.....have to get the kids to youth group and then am planning on going to a meeting in town for "The American Heritage Series" about America's moral, religious and constituitional heritage.....I am looking forward to learning something this evening! (Did I mention that I am from New Zealand?) We have been in the States for 10 years and are looking at getting our citizenship.

    You're right no one does pot luck and food like the Baptist Church. You are a busy woman. Congrats on fitting it all in making time for yourself and choosing the things in life that really matter. emoticon
Have a blessed week.

    Sounds like a great sunday. You will enjoy the Beth Moore study guide on Esther. We had the youth do worship and their youth leader do the sermon at our church today. I was born and raised here in canada myself.

    Good job packing so much into your day. Your right, Baptist churches are good at feeding the body as well as the soul.

Home, sweet home

Saturday, August 21, 2010

I am finally home from Phoenix and loving being at home, I am tired, just had a quick nap before driving home after my nightshift. My son also had a youth group lock-in last night - laser tag and a waterpark so we are both taking it quietly! Watching Walker - Texas Ranger together!
Am still doing my strength exercises :)

    I'm a nurse and just got back from out of town too. Sometimes I get so exhausted when I'm out of town I don't get enough sleep or eat like I should. I'm glad we both made it home!

Squats and Wall Push Ups

Saturday, August 21, 2010

OK so it is 11.30pm and I have just completed 50 wall push ups - oh I know that I am so going to feel this tomorrow :) I also did 20 squats but my legs were still a little sore from doing them yesterday too. emoticon So where do I log these exercises to get some credit for them? Are they strength exercises? I just have the steps and cardio on my fitness log.
Thanks
Christine

    Go to MY TOOLS, MY FITNESS,
Click on ADD STRENGTH EXERCISE

Click on UPPER BODY
5th item down on right side is:
Close-Arm Wall Pushups
Click on that and it will add it to your workout. Go back to
MY Fitness Page and click the box to show you did it.

Hope that helps.

I think Squats should be there on lower body workout? Not sure
