Again I didn't blog for a couple days but I did my exercises.

Today I did 45 minutes WATP for 3 miles. I need to build up to 3 miles because on November 1 I am doing a 21 day Challenge with Leslie Sansone and her Walk At Home group on Facebook and her web site.
Then I did 30 minutes of dumbbell exercises.

Seems like I did make a blog post and it was deleted! I know I didn't go all week without a blog post. What happened?

D7/W1 + D1/W2

Saturday, October 23, 2010

I didn't get around to blogging yesterday, I was lazy.
Yesterday was the end of my week 1 challenge. I walked around for about 15 minutes while I was talking to my daughter on Skype. I always walk around when I talk on the phone but yesterday I walked, marched like I was doing the Walk Away The Pounds videos. I did raise my heart rate and worked up a sweat. I also walked around for a while afterwards.
As a synopsis for the first week, I did 5 1/2 days out of 7 so I think I did well.

For week 2 we have to find different ways of exercise in everyday life which I usually try to do. I'm going to try 5 minutes in the morning to wake up with.
I really miss my gym buddy, it's so much easier to walk and talk and make the time go faster and work out harder.

Today I had a 10 minute walk to the store on the compound around 2PM, the outside temp was around 110 with no shade. It wasn't all that bad but when i got back I had worked up a sweat. Then while watching a Private Practice marathon, I did a 30 minute work out with my stability ball and dumbbells. My knee was still bothering me so I did the upper body workout.

I'm still determined and I will keep going at it!

    good for you girl! you had a great week! and should be so proud of your progress! you made a plan and are sticking too it even with a sore knee which I hope starts feeling better for you soon! take care of that knee! and let me tell you I miss you more! the gym sucks!! and I heard through the grape vine that they have been sold - and no one is sure if they are going to even keep the place open - they were saying that the equipment would get fixed if they keep it open - my guess is it has to be a write off but we'll have to wait and see what happens.

D6/W1 My birthday

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Today is my 53rd birthday but that is no excuse to not to exercise. I did not exercise today because my knee hurts. I'm not usually a whiner but it hurts, it feels like it's swollen but I can't tell if it is or not, I want to give it a rest but I also don't want to break my streak. I WILL do some upper body exercises on Friday.
I did walk around the grocery store for an hour today and got up and down doing laundry.

We had a fair Indian meal for dinner, we've had better. We had our usual chicken jalfrezi, dahl (lentils) naan bread but this time we tried the curry vegetables. The vegetables were good the the jalfrezi wasn't all that great this time.

Oh, I did get a present today! My Annie kitty brought me a bird she caught and she was damn proud of herself for doing it! She pranced around for a few minutes then ate it.
I also sat and stitched tonight and may stitch later too.

Not a good day.
I was so tired today, I just could not get up and moving. I laid down on the couch at 2:30 and took a nap for a couple hours.
I did get up and fix Skillet Chicken Pot Pie recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
and did a few exercises in the kitchen while waiting for it too cook.
Then I did do a 17 minute gentle mile Walk Away The Pounds video, so at least I did to my 10 minute challenge today!

I did the exercises despite a sore knee. You remember those "Indian burns" from when you were a kid, when someone would twist your arm, well that is how my knee feels. Like someone twisted my leg in different directions at the knee. It will probably be better tomorrow.

That is my check in for today.

    Good work, Robin! Keep at it (within reason, given the knee) and you'll get there!

Today went ok, could have been better.

35 minute 2 mile Walk Away the Pounds Video: Walk and Talk Diabetes
17 minute 1 mile Gentle Walk

10 Minute Coach Nicole Firm, Fit and Fired Up Day 2, Upper arms
Tried to run the bonus cardio but it won't run
Then I did 20 crunches on the stability ball.

I don't know why the bonus cardio segment won't play but it just won't no matter what I try to do.

I'm also trying to plan my meals for next week when my husband will be away. I can cook one day and eat for a week. They are all my favorite recipes from my Diabetic cookbook.
I don't expect to feel immediate progress but I still feel like a beached whale and I look like I'm 10 months pregnant with triplets.
