Day 104-Zumba with my daughter
Sunday, March 11, 2012      5 comments

Well, it took a while, but we finally figured out how to do multi-player on my Zumba game for the Xbox Kinect. Mary (12) really had fun doing a couple of single routines with me. She has no experience dancing, so it was fun watching her try to... Read more
Day 103
Saturday, March 10, 2012      2 comments

My body is sore again today, and TOM hit, so I forced myself to only walk. I did two miles in 32 minutes. I'm hoping that will get some of the lactic acid build up out of my muscles and give my body a little bit of a break. ... Read more
Day 102-Beautiful sunny day!
Friday, March 09, 2012      2 comments

I think I'll finally be able to start jogging regularly, at least for the next week. Today was sunny and in the upper 50's. I took it a little easier than on Tuesday. I'm still sore from that outing. I walked 1/4 mile, jogged 1 mile, walked ... Read more
Day 101-Tackling the basement disaster!
Thursday, March 08, 2012      2 comments

I squeezed in 20 minutes of Zumba today, so my streak is still going. I decided early in the day to finally start attacking the disaster that is our basement. We have a rec room that is 32' x 24'. Half the room is a TV area with game systems ... Read more

Wednesday, March 07, 2012      8 comments

I made it to 100! My body was a little sore from yesterday's workout, ok, very sore, so I decided to do some zero impact exercise. Good thing I've got an Endless pool! I did 30 minutes today, including 1000 backstrokes (2x500). I would have ... Read more
Day 99-So close to 100 I can taste it!
Tuesday, March 06, 2012      6 comments

With the gorgeous weather today I decided to get some jogging done. Before each one mile jog, I would warm up on the elliptical for 5 minutes. Then I also cooled down with a 5 min elliptical session. In between each jogging session, I did one... Read more

Today I decided to swim for my workout. I did 30 minutes including 1000 backstrokes (2x500). I figured my joints could use a break, and I think I'll try to jog tomorrow with the warmer temps. Hopefully, it won't be so windy. A strange th... Read more

Today I was able to do 45 min of Zumba since I don't have to be at work as early as yesterday. I'd better hurry and get ready though!... Read more

Wow! I'm close to 100! Today a 30 min swim in the endless pool with 1000 backstrokes and various kicks holding onto the kickbar. Off to work again! It's been crazy there. ... Read more
Days 94 & 95

Yesterday I did my standard routine: elliptical, weights, crunches and stretching. It was tough to get through, but I did it. Today I did Zumba for 20 minutes. It felt great! Wish I had more time to do some more, but off to work I go!... Read more

Thursday, March 01, 2012      4 comments

I thought I'd blog before I exercise today. I never got a chance to blog yesterday. My afternoons and evenings are chaotic. Today will be crazy after school: After school: Mikey has track, Mary has rehearsal (a bullying movie), Stevie h... Read more

Fantastic workout today. I started with 60 straight minutes on the elliptical, then did weights, non-crunch abs, and stretching. WooHoo!! I think all the Zumba I did all weekend and Monday really worked my core. I sure could feel it today be... Read more
Day 91
Monday, February 27, 2012      4 comments

Wow! I've officially been working out every day for three months! All weekend I did Zumba on the Xbox Kinect. It was frustrating that we couldn't get the two player game to work. I really wanted to see the kids try Zumba. I did discover how... Read more
Day 88
Friday, February 24, 2012      1 comments

Today I did three 20 minute Zumba classes on the Xbox. I have to say that I really don't like the expert classes. There is no rhyme or reason to the moves, they aren't a good workout, and many times the guy (yes a man is the expert instructor)... Read more
Days 85,86,87-Streak alive, computer problems
Thursday, February 23, 2012      4 comments

Our main computer crashed earlier this week, and I sometimes can't get the one in the basement to work the way I want it to. That means my sparking gets messed up a lot. My streak is still alive. Tuesday and Wednesday I did my standard co... Read more
