Day 6 - Thursday - Walking and Stairs. Total 10 minutes.

Day 5/1000 of Streaking Done! But the scale increased it's # No Bueno!

Thursday, April 21, 2011

So on Wednesday (yesterday) I finished 5 total days of SP's Exercise Streak. WOW 5 whole days!
But when I stepped on the scale this morning I saw that the scale went up instead of down.

As disappointing as that is, I will NOT stop streaking!
So that's it for this blog.
Oh, I walked to bible study on Day 5. That means I'm a lil closer to Nojoqui Falls!

Today is Day 6, not sure what I'll do. But I'll do something!

    Even though I can't ignore the scale, I'll keep in mind that some people can gain a bit when they start to work out. That will help keep my spirits up!
Thanks UCRGIRL! emoticon

    I agree with Jeckie. Ignore the scale. A lot of people gain wait intially when they start exercising, but it's the trend over time that matters- and over time, YOU WILL LOSE if you keep doing the right stuff. Keep your head up girl.

I really wish I could, but I have to check it due to my Congestive Heart Failure (Edemia, must watch the Fluid build up around my lungs and body).

    Ignore the scale. It's evil. Made of pure badness. ;)

Picture This! My Virtual Walk to Nojoqui Falls Has Begun!

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

So I'm trying to have fun and keep this exercise daily streak's going to be 1,000 days for Pete's sake! LOL
The 1st fun thing that I'm going to try are my Virtual Walking Trips! So whenever I walk (which won't be every day, as I want to do exercise DVDs & other forms of fitness) I will count those miles to get me to a virtual destination that I want to revisit or that I hope to go to one day!

I got the idea from a SparkTeam Page. I began my journey on Monday, April 18th, Day 3 of my Daily Exercise Streak Challenge with SparkGuy. So follow me on my trips if you like. I have placed the info on my sparkpage under "My Program". But may do blogs as I'm able to write more!

1st Destination: Nojoqui Falls, located in Santa Barbara County. This will be a 30 mile trip for me.
On yesterday I did 0.4 miles to the falls!

Here's a bit of info on why I chose Nojoqui Falls.
Well, the 1st time I went was back in the late 90's with my Residential Life staff from University of California, Santa Barbara. It was beautiful. Once you get there there is a 15-20 minute hike to the waterfall. And there was water that day, so nice. But I have seen pictures where there is even more. In the mid 2000's I went back with my boyfriend a& although the drive and hike were nice, being an impromptu trip, there wasn't hardly any water, but just being there with him was enchanting & romantic! Plus quite a workout! LOL

So here are some pictures. Maybe some day you'll be able to travel there too!

1998-99 San Rafael Residential Hall Staff. I'm in the front row, sitting 3rd from the left. Yes I know it's tiny, but this pic was posted on fb from a friend lol

Entrance of Park (this pix and the ones following are all from a yahoo search, but enjoy anyway)

A bridge on the 15 minute trail to the falls. Still remember feeling so adventurous crossing it!

So beautiful even before you approach the falls. And yes, it's def a hike!

Like I said, sometimes the falls arn't flowing with much water. It was like this when my bf & I went. But we had eachother so that was the beauty on that day. Hopefully we'll get to go back soon!

And sometimes it's overflowing.

So I hope you enjoyed the photos. And maybe you'll be able to do a virtual walk from your home or even better, maybe one day, you'll be able to feel the waters from Nojoqui Falls!!!

    Blessings to keep up your virtual walks. You can do it Roz! Thanks for sharing the pictures. It looks like a Great Place to Visit. I love places like that. Walking the trails are so much fun and gives a better workout that flat surfaces. Many Blessings for you and Thanks for always supporting me!
Love you!

Days 3 & 4 of Streaking! YAY more exercise! (April 19, 2011)

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Hey everyone!
Day 4 and I just finished 10 minutes with fitness expert Jennifer Galardi, doing "The Simple Slimmer". It's one of her 10 minute Fat Blasting Dance Mixes. I watched instantly from netflix, and did it for the 1st time AND I got it in before 10am WOW!!!
emoticon And I am sooooo THIRSTY!!! emoticon

Day 3 which was yesterday, Monday, April 18, 2011. I went walking outside for 20 minutes!!!
I put on a heavy hoodie, grabbed my trash bag and my empty 1 gal. water container and was out the door! Dumped the trash and proceeded to the corner market down the street! I thought that I might walk back the long way, but opted to just go the way I came, as my chest let me know that I am not completely recovered from this cold/virus! emoticon

But the fact that I went outside and walked, that I was still on my streak on day 3...well, that just made my day and made up for the eeky feeling in my chest! emoticon

So for the one who never did 5 straight days of exercise...the one who's trying to do as many of the 1,000 days of fitness with SparkGuy...WELL, HECK, I'm feeling pretty darn good having completing Day 4 in a row! YAY ME!!!!!
So if I can do this with a headache and still feeling under the weather, I should be able to really DO THIS!!!

Well, all the best for my fellow Sparkfriends still in this streak. I'm following up on you all, even when I don't get a chance to write something of encouragement. Know that I appreciate you and am right with you!

    It just starts & finishes with us. We have to be receptive to change & change although is good, its hard. But good to see you are on your way. I have been trying to get in 4-6days of fitness, like I use to but I am now lazy. Maybe its my age. . . .lol emoticon emoticon

God bless & emoticon!

Day 2 of Streaking! Exercise that is. Follow, Encourage, Support!!!

Monday, April 18, 2011

So Sunday is my Day 2 of Streaking!

Still sick but I knew I had to continue and not miss a day. Actually I think I was going to skip today, but I saw SP's facebook status and REALLY wanted to click the "like" button to say that I did 10+ minutes of fitness. So I closed my laptop, sat up a little bit on the couch, and started working my arms. I did a different move for each minute (I watched the clock change on the dvr LOL).

Anyhow, boy were my arms hurting! emoticon
10 minutes of arm exercises today.
Day 2 (April 17, 2011) 203 lbs
