Day 104-Zumba with my daughter
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
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.

Day 102-Beautiful sunny day!
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!
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
Day 100 of 10 minutes of exercise per day!
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!
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

Off to work again! It's been crazy there.

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
Day 93 (yesterday), Busy mom (today)
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
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
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
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
