I Am Strong!

Monday, February 11, 2013

Yesterday, I had a really long day and I was tired and wasn't going to work out. After dinner, my daughter started marching in place. We do that together a lot so I get my steps for the day. She then said that I would be in a bad mood if I didn't get more steps and I should get on my treadmill. I watched the Grammy's and walked on the treadmill until I hit the 10,000 steps. emoticon

This week my BL BC team is having a BINGO challenge along with our weekly 5k, circuit and steps challenge. Today, I managed to cross a lot of the square off. One of the squares was to try a new DVD. I tried one of Coach Nichols. It was ok, but pretty easy for me. So, I decided to move onto Leslie Sansone's Punch up Your Walk. That one works with weighted gloves. It is a 4 mile walk and she really does work every part of your body.

I crossed off 5 more squares with that workout. I still hadn't gotten to 15,000 steps which is one square I need to cross off. I am at 12,000, but after nearly 2 hours, I need a break. I will get those other 3,000 steps in by the end of the day. I AM STRONG! I WILL NOT QUIT!

I figured out an analogy for the scale: Scales are like can't live with them, you can live without them and you can't tell what they truly mean emoticon

    WOW . . . those biggest loser challenges are really motivational. I somehow managed to get into an interim (BLC) BAC challenge between the regular challenges and the expectations are great. I'm competitive, so I strive to excel at everything I so. You can do this!
