Vlog - May 11 - Feeling Confident!

Friday, May 11, 2012

Thinking positive and feeling good about the journey. Short video - a little under 3 minutes.

I edited out the beginning of the video. This part is more inspiring

Today I took two walks - What a gorgeous day!
one walk of 31 minutes with the dog and my son biking = 1.1 miles
one walk of 35 minutes by myself (son at playdate with neighbor's kids) = 1.4 miles.
Then hula hooped and hoop danced for 16 minutes.
Mowed the lawn with hand mower for 20 minutes, too!

Now (right after this) I'm going to dance in the living room. Dance party Friday! Going to do 30-45 minutes.
Before dancing I've hit 12,100 steps on my pedometer!
Better than yesterday when I only walked .3 miles (7 min.) One day at a time!

I still have strength training to do tonight!

    I love your positive attitude! Moving is way under-rated! I love when I see someone's page and their fitness minutes equal or exceed their sparkminutes! This winter I'd even get up and do 10-12 minute spark walks around my house. Five of those a day added an hour of aerobic walking to my days. Made a big difference this winter. I think I still have the vlog up on it.
You are doing so great! I love that you are building the activity into your day and your lifestyle. A sure way to stay with it. WTG!

    Loved your Vlog. Very inspiring. I had already done a mile on my Tony Little Gazelle for 14 minutes before I saw your Vblog. If I hadn't, I definitely would of gone and exercised. Thank you for the encouragement. emoticon

I did have to laugh when you asked about the exercise and say "what are you doing on Spark?" Lucky for me, by the time I can watch vlogs, I've already done my workout and logged it.

Fun activity is definitely a big part of a healthy lifestyle!
