Exercise

Friday, July 22, 2011

My 20 minutes of low impact aerobic exercise is accomplished and by 10am, woot! I did Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home DVD. Warm up and then a Tummy focus mile.

I have to run some errands today so I am hopeful that I will be able to easily reach and/or exceed my goal of 7,000 steps. To help I will be sure to park further way from the entrances than I normally do, even if it's raining I have my umbrella in the car =)

I purchased The Spark today for my Nook. It was only $1.99 so I figured why not?!

My goal is to reach and maintain 175 lbs. It would still leave me considered over weight, but due to my build and past experience I am very pleased with myself at about that weight. If I happen to lose more than that would be fine, but 175 is a nice, realistic goal.

My first goal is to lose 15-20 pounds before November 1, 2011 and be up to 10,000 steps minimum per day.

    Awesome V. How long did it take you to lose the 22.4 lbs so far? I actually started working on being more active at the beginning of June, about 45 days. I have lost 5 lbs, but none so far this month. I did take a vacation to visit family though and ate like a pig and skipped some of my work outs. Now I am back on track =)

On a side note my plan worked and am already up to 7,900 steps. I am going to really make an effort to hit 10,000 today. That would be the first time I hit 10k steps in a day since a trip to an amusement park in June!
