Just started the second of six four week cycles. The goal of each of these cycles is to lose 7lbs and target one physical activity for marked improvement. I haven't been blogging before, but it's not such a bad idea. The last 4 we... Read more

Thank you SMD5573! You are right. I am an enabler. Upon reflection, a selective enabler. Once a problem has been acknowledged, it can changed. So this is what I'm going to do: The Hubby Project I have 127 days until he turns 50. ... Read more

Each night, my husband and I go for a walk. It's usually dark. The stars are out and the day is generally cooler. We go for about an hour. Round about 3 miles. Each night we walk and talk. The talk tends to run in regular patterns. We... Read more

I am very ready to call the half point. I suppose that will be tommorrow. For last week's report, I had to toss one cardio session. Went to Atlanta for Dragon Con, a sci-fi convention. First time I've ever done that. It was a blast! Se... Read more

Week 5 Completed

Saturday, August 28, 2010      0 comments

It was a good and bad week. Good - I worked really, really hard. Bad - scheduling caused chaos and I ended up with one day without workouts and another with two. Note to self: If I miss a workout, it's just missed. No more trying to m... Read more

Three weeks completely done. Whew! Finished last week stronger than I started it. I was really looking forward to the easier recovery week until doing Yoga this morning. Ouch! I'm getting better at everything, but those downward d... Read more

It's week 3, P90X Classic. I must say that yesterday's chest, back & abs was hard. Felt like I could do less, not more. Except for the abs. Those I did better :) Overall, muscle fatigue (not really soreness), is becoming ever-present.... Read more

I'm getting tired.

Week 2 of P90X Classic is moving along. I did every workout as scheduled including today's legs & back. I have only Kenpo tommorrow to complete the week. I've run 3 miles three days so far. I feels soooooo good to run an easy recovery ru... Read more

Amazing! After dragging my bottom on the ground by Sunday, I got through my Chest & Back plus Abs this morning with noticable improvement from the previous Monday. Course, I can barely lift my arms to type this morning. Didn't run... Read more

Overdid it yesterday. YogaX, ran 3 miles, Legs & Back, walked a total of 90 minutes. Total calories 1426. You'd think the scale would be down this morning, huh? Course not. I didn't really mean to eat only 1426. All that exercise... Read more

I'm still shufflng from the last minute changes on Wed & Thursday nights. Didn't plan for this stuff. Missed the Wed Abs because I wasn't home. Thursday, I had an awesome 3 mile run. Was just clipping along feeling great. The plan w... Read more

So is it Kosher to countdown? I kinda like it :) Did the Shoulders & Arms right on time. Liked that workout, too! Started out with resistence bands but got frustrated with uneven tension and swiched to dumbbells. I'm used to working... Read more

Got a medium paced run, 3 miles in this morning. It was a good day- no dogs chased me! Hubby & I did our first pylometrics after work. To my surprise, it was really fun. Totally achievable except for that pitching baseball thing that I j... Read more
