January 7: Day 125 of the 10+ Minute Fitness Challenge

Saturday, January 07, 2012

Today's Fitness
I did 98 minutes of fitness today.

Today's Highlights
Today's highlight's were doing a lot of fitness while watching my hometown Cincinnati Bengals lose to the Houston Texans (congrats to the Texans!). Then, after the game I went outside and ran sprints with my boys. I highly recommend this for all parents really tires them out and makes the day go smoother with better moods when they burn off that energy!

Title: I exercised every day this week!!!!

Message: I just realized something! I exercised every day this week! That''s a first! I hadn''t been doing almost any exercising so this is HUGE!!! I took a 12 mile hike on Sunday, did 1 hour+ on the treadmill on MWF, worked with a trainer plus did some treadmill time on Thursday, and tomorrow is another hike - 8 miles. Way to go me!!! And I''m going to keep it up. Moving the treadmill from the basement to the family room and in front of the TV has been a good move. Oh, and I''ve been logging my calories. And getting a good night''s sleep. I think I''m finally on my way to losing this weight that''s been dragging me down. Hooray!!! We can do this!!!

  Chris you will laugh when you read this; I have a personal trainer--she's 8 years old! lol. She's in my congregation and from a very dysfunctional family so I took her under my wing and said "can you help me with my exercising?" At the time I was taking personal training at the gym so I called her MY pt! She loves it! One thing she can't handle is sugar; it makes her hyper crazy! We were at a convention today and at noon break she and I had a cookie. Within a few minutes she was starting to bounce! So I said "Let's go for a walk". I am using a walker.I grabbed her; put her in front of me in the walker and off we went at a pretty brisk pace--definite cardio! Got her to her seat and continued on at a good pace to my seat (at the other end of the auditorium natch! ) All told I think we did about 20 mins of that plus another couple 10 mins spurts. And It's a two day convention so this will be repeated! WooHoo! Laurie
