Last month I set a fitness goal of 500 minutes, the only reason i actually reached it was because i spent several hours cleaning out the guest closet. Now, it wasn't passive cleaning, not by any stretch of the imagination. I was up and down the stairs a ton, taking things out to the dumpster (I nearly filled it up, yikes!) and then several trips into the attic. Not to mention I was also doing laundry. i only counted 3 hours of it though, it was actually closer to 5 but eh. where was i going with this.... oh right! Even with those 3 hours of cleaning "cardio" i just barely made my minutes so i'm repeating the goal for February.
And this time... I have support! if things keep going the way they have been for the last week or so i should double it! 2/2 did 45 minutes of Turbo fire, 2/3 30 minutes of Turbo fire, 2/4 20 minute sculpting vid 10 minute abs, Monday we walked/jogged for 30 min, yesterday did P90X... forgot what the video was called, but we did it for 40 minutes. That was February week 1. 175 minutes!

This morning at 6 am i met my friend at the park for a jog. well, he jogged. I mostly walked and then jogged the ends. Maybe i'll build up. either way, accountability is the key, had someone not been waiting for me, i'd have stayed asleep, i can always use the sleep. I did 4 laps went to the office cleaned up (we have a lovely locker room) and got to work. And then it happened, Allen showed up with tacos from whataburger. I love bacon and egg tacos, i sat there staring at it for a while. I couldn't in good conscience devour it the way i normally do. After all, what about all that hard work i'd just put in! also... i got on the scale after my shower and it said 142, this was disappointing cause just the other day it said 139. I was so excited about breaking that line, i think it lies. anyway! I have cereal in my gym bag, and milk in the fridge, but bacon and egg is soooo much better. So i put the contents in a bowl threw away the tortilla (after taking a bite, i'm still human afterall) pieced the bacon cause i don't like the fatty white stuff, and ate it with a little picante sauce. I have defeated the breakfast taco! It's gonna be a good day today.

I try to do yoga 3 times a week. I'm fortunate, very fortunate. The company i work for hired a yoga instructor to come in 3 times a week, 2 classes on mon and wed, one on friday. I've been doing it on and off now for about 2 years. Starting in January, our yoga instructor, we'll call her M, has decided to torture us. It's pretty wonderful though, at the end of our 40 minutes we go into corpse pose and i'm so worn out i probably feel and look very much like dead weight. Today wasn't bad though, since Jan 5th, she taken it up a notch and today was relatively easy. The best part was, when i reflected on what we actually did it would have been a tough day, but after just two and half weeks, i'm adjusting. It's pretty great.
I need to add in more active cardio, and i'm thinking it'll be a little easier this time around.
anyway, nothing funny no real news. the scale still hates me. just thought i needed to post something

Exercise can be fun! Went dancing last night with friends, and sure we had a couple beers (2 to be exact) but the bouncing around and two-stepping more than covered it i'm sure. So much fun! I love dancing... need to get more of that in.
Not a bad week actually, 40 minutes of yoga on wed, 30 minutes worth of dancing last night, and i'll do another 40 minute yoga class today. 110minutes! I can definitely make my goal of 500
Oooh! i forgot we played volleyball on sunday... i'll call that another 30 minutes. It was actually way more than that, we were out there for a couple hours, but a lot of it was passive.
Week 1: drum roll please.... 140 minutes!
