Today's note

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Spark People Day at a Glance Calendar note for April 28:
Go Nuts! Almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, peanuts, pistachios--they all contain healthy monounsaturated fats that lower your risk of several diseases. Snack on a small handfull 3-5 times per week.

Another 45 minute 3 mile Walk Away The Pounds for Abs today, Day 5 boot camp video for Abs and some wall pushups.

Practicing for Boot Camp

Monday, April 27, 2009

The new boot camp starts May 3 but I've been watching the videos and trying them out. I will be getting a work out that's for sure but I know I can do it!

Today's Day at a Glance Calendar note:
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you , too, can become great" This is a good one!

I did the 3 mile WAlk Away The Pounds for Abs all the way through for the 3rd time! WOO HOO
I also did another 20 minutes of resistance band and dumbbell workouts.

I woke up to no A/C this morning and it was rather warm. They fixed it in about an hour. It was 90F outside with high humidity this morning so I couldn't open the door. It was grey and overcast too.

Have a GREAT day!

Did my exercise

Sunday, April 26, 2009

I didn't get to walk outside ttoday, it was way too hot when I got up.
I did get through the 3 mile Walk Away The Pounds for ABS YAY YAY YAY! It is a great workout.

I did a lower body work out this evening, can't wait until the Boot Camp starts next week.

Think I am going to check out a fitness place when I get home just on a trial basis and see if they have a trainer that can help. Gotta lose these last 15-20 pounds.

A new week!

Saturday, April 25, 2009

30 days, happy dance, 30 days! 30 days from today I will be HOME! WOO HOO!

Spark People Day at a Glance Calendar note for TODAY:
These are the last two days of TV turnoff week. Here's one more reason to keep the tube off: 90%of food commercials aired during Saturday morning shows for kids advertise junk food, according to the American Diabetic Association. Wellll, I didn't even know it was TV turnoff week and I highly doubt my DH would EVER go for such a thing.

I took a profile picture today and I don't notice any difference in the profile picture I took January except for my chin. I have done a Walk Away The Pounds video every day this past week, even got up to the 3 mile fat burning walk for Abs which is quite a work out and felt good! I did that one twice.

I got out and walked this morning. One of our outside cats was inside this morning and he let me know he was ready to go back outside after breakfast at 6:30AM so I got up. It was already 83F at 6:30AM!!! But I decided I'm walking. So I did a 2 mile 40 minute walk in the humidity. I NEED to do it, I have 15 more pounds to loose!

    I know when my nephew came back from Iraq he had a long trip. It was probably 20 hrs or longer. Is that how long your trip will be? WooHoo on only having 15 lbs. left to go. On the Doctors TV here they said a 16 or less neck size is good for cardiovascular. I've heard of no TV last year. Oprah advertised it but she still put on new shows not asking for anyone to quit seeing her. What a farce. I did it though. I wish they had it this week because I didn't watch much tv with mom in the hospital

GO NY YANKEES! & more good news!

Friday, April 24, 2009

GO YANKEES! Let's have a GOOD weekend series with Boston!

Today's Sparkpeople Day at a Glance calendar note is:
Move and shake! Be as active as you can each day. Dance to the car radio, fidget at your desk, and get up as often as you can. You'll become fitter, healthier and slimmer! I do this! I jump up from my chair, I bounce my feet under my computer desk, I go up and down stairs at least 4 times a day (I know that isn't much) and I try to get at least 15 minutes of some sort of exercise every day.

So after moving my weight ticker yesterday I stepped on the scale this morning and it didn't go as far as it did last week by another pound! So I am going to wait another week to see if it stays at that new number and I will change it again! WOO HOO!

    Isn't it great to see the scale go down!!! I know mine gets stalled for so long I start to get discouraged....and then suddenly it'll move a little more.

    You were so discouraged for a while. Now you're hopping and jumping. What a change.
