Today I feel great!!!

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Today I felt great,no pain in the legs after walking 3.05 miles at the zoo for five hours and burning 1,633 calories! So, my toddler and I went to Jumping Jacks today--a place with many different types of bouncers so you can jump, climb,slide, or do obstacle courses. We had a lot of fun---only did it for 20 minutes--very aerobic!! Bet tomorrow will be a different story?! But for now, I feel GREAT!!! emoticon emoticon

    That sounds like a fun place, both for mom and child. My boys, especially the older one, would have a blast. Here's hoping you feel good today.

Monday, March 01, 2010

Well,today we go to the L.A. Zoo today! Last time we had the Garmin attached to my wrist and heart monitor and I walked almost 4 miles and 2,000+ calories burned in about 5 hours--just WALKING at a LEISURELY pace!!!!! Hope to do the same although more tired due to lack of sleep due to toddler waking in the middle of the night .... emoticon emoticonHappy March!

    Hi RONIE11--Your comment made me think of when I entered in my info. in a pedometer and dropped it only to have it break!LOL! But I didn't laugh since I didn't get to use it! A Garmin is like a pedometer in that it measures your distance and miles walked or ran or biked. What's great is that it also measures your HEART RATE which is very important for fitness and learning how high is your optimum heart rate.We bought the Garmin off of e-bay {in good condition;not new} for about $50.00 & it has been a super investment!There are 2 pieces-one for your wrist& 1 to put around your waist,just under your chest.My distance-3.05miles/time-5 hrs.walking/1,633 cal. burned. I can give you more info. later.... emoticon

    Ok what's a Garmin and did it track your distance walked??? and calculate your calories??? I bought a pedometer and walked all over town and on the beach got home and the darn thing turned itself off..grrrr I don't have any luck with pedometers if I could look at my waistband and see if its working properly would I really need one??? good grief. LOL

By the way congrats on your progress 4 miles is amazing and you were having fun too...

Biggest Loser Competition for MOMs Club

Friday, February 26, 2010

Well, it looks likeC. is winning right now in lbs. 13 over my 10 but how is her bf? Mine's only 1% and that's what we're going by.....Speaking of can someone lose 1% of body fat and NOT lose weight? Doesn't make any sense to me.....Maybe my bf losses will pick up in this next month....Sure would like to win the $140.00 pot and put it towards a treadmill. Then, I could ALWAYS RUN rain or shine,no matter what my schedule,my family's schedule. As long as my toddler NAPS..... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    If you are exercising more or something, you could be gaining muscle while losing fat. Muscle weighs more, but takes up less space. A good thing. Good Luck in the contest.

Anyway, hope it is this way with the NEXT 10 lbs.....Though something tells me ---it's gonna be harder!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
