I'm a walker. My goal is to walk at least 4 times a week. It feels weird (in a good way) to make time for me and my health, but I'm sure I will get used to it. I walked yesterday, will walk tomorrow Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. 3 miles each day.

Ok Ok... I've been avoiding "making plans" I admit it. It's hard for me to set any sort of plan... for eating, for exercising, etc. I exercise pretty much every single day, but I sort of do what I want... when I want. LOL.

My plan is to do at least 20 mins a day this week. I'm doing back exercises for my back pain. in the morning and before bed to help with pain until I can get to my Drs office.

But if I HAVE to schedule a day by day thing... (which I do think would feel restrictive, but I can try it)

Monday- run
Tuesay- dance or kick boxing
Wed- run
Thursday-spin
Friday-Dance or run
Saturday dance or yoga
Sunday- rest/ walk

I usually work out about 30-60 mins a day. :)

variety works for me too. My plan for the next couple of weeks is:

Mon: Hot Yoga
Tues: Gym Cardio/strength training
Wed Slow Flow Yoga
Thurs Gym Cardio/strength training
Sat: Yoga Basics

I have specific classes picked out at my yoga studio and plan to start going to those classes regularly instead of my old way of going to classes as it fit my schedule. Now I'm going to schedule around these classes, so the teachers will get to know me and my practice.

Also, I've enlisted one of my colleagues at work to help motivate me to get to the gym on Tues/Thurs. She goes regularly before lunch and has been emailing me when she goes...it's been working really well so far.

Activity had always been a challenge for me, but for the last week it I have been able to be consistent. I am not setting one type of exercise. I have found over the last week that the variety has kept it interesting for me. So my plans are:

Monday: yoga class
Tuesday - Thursday: Pilates / Bollywood Fitness / Yoga from DVD or PVR or use rebounder
Friday and either Saturday or Sunday: cross-country skiing or strength training depending on the weather

Revisting this chapter..............my last post sounds depressing...NOT ME emoticon I've been exercising for a long time now. Dr oked it many many years ago. ((HUGH GIGGLES)). I am older and not in the best of shape. In the beginning I was shy about going to the gym I was afraid that I would jiggle LOL.Afraid someone would laugh. But after seeing folk bigger than I was that fear went away. I recently stepped out in faith and joined a gym. They have trainers but at this time I do not want them. I do not want to go out on a stretcher. emoticon I've seen many folks start out strong with them and end up quitting. I am no quitter. But I do not intend on use personal trainer either. I am a special case and I do not feel like discussing to them about my health struggles and them trying to adapt to me. I hate pitty!!!!! or being judged because of my health. I told a person whom I knew that I was diabetic and this person said "you don't look like you have diabetes". My thought was I did not know that diabetes had a look............. So I flipped it back on him and said 'God is good like that".

I still have by trusty stationary bike. I brought it at a yard sale for 6.00. In the past my hubbie brought a new bike and it only lasted 6 months and it was over 200.00 thanks WALMART! emoticon . Instead of running out to buy big exercise items I purchase small one like exercise dvd's I found many of them at the thrift shop Winsor Pilates I am sure cost a arm and a leg but I only paid 1.00 to .50 for them. I still have my stretchy bands and small weights. I replaced my pilates ball. I purchased a step aerobics dvd but I do not have an aerobic stepper....So that will be my next purchase.

Since sticking with aerobics and going to the gym my endurance has improved and I am not nearly winded as I used to be while exercising. emoticon I challenge myself by increasing my time or distance on the treadmill or bike. I also use programs that are challenging on the exercise equipment. I also walk in the gym with weight balls. As long as I have my MP3 player I am good!!!!!!!!!

A still do spontaneous movement. I am the main cleaner at home. So I still use my grater when not in a hurry--instead of the food processor, I cut my own veggies some of the times. I have not yet used my clothes line yet but I plan on doing just that. I do not have a dish washer so I am it. I still park a ways off from the store. Dents and dings in the car is ugly. So I park away I do my own sweeping and vacuuming. I've seen on tv a robot floor sweeper. Now that is too much emoticon .I mop my floors I care for my own home I have no maids...but sometimes it would be nice. emoticon If I am doing extensive cleaning I do count that as exercise. I love gardening but I play it safe. Allergies are no fun and I want to avoid the allergens at all cost.

Now Summer and school being out will be challenging at present time but since my car is in the shop and I can not get to the gym I am exercising at home. I think that the school routine will be good carried out as if school is still going on. that way I can go to the gym and get my exercise over in the mornings. I have found out that evening exercise does not agree with me I am too tired then. I usually dont follow schedules when exercising when I get there my mind cha changed or the equipment I want is being used. I need to work on strength training cause I do not do that yet much..........................I have made advantages on exercising just in case I have an I do not want to exercise day. .

This one is easy so while I am still working on Day 8 I am going to do Day 9.

I don't have a problem with exercise. It's how I relax. It's also an excuse to get out of the house when the teens are driving me nuts.

I'm resurrecting old threads.

My plan for next week.

Sunday: Toning either in the gym or at home + Ripped in 30 level 1
Monday: Ripped n 30 level 1 + 30 minutes cardio
Tuesday: Swimming and ripped in 30 level 1
Wednesday: Tu Bshvat and my 15 year old turns 16 so if I want to have all that dried fruit and his birthday cake...I'm going to do cardio for an hour or swimming and ripped in 30 level 1
Thursday: Ripped in 30 level 1 and Kathy Smith B fit
Friday: Swimming
Saturday: Take a break or not..

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your
life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on,
rely on, or blame. The gift is yours -- it is an amazing
journey -- and you alone are responsible for the quality of
it. This is the day your life really begins."

New goals:
Eat Positively
Exercise daily (that one is already achieved)
Experiment with 3-5 meals a day
Avoid binge for at least 3 weeks.

My plan is to add 2 gym days each week. Given my work schedule isn't too hectic these days, I'm going to fit it in either during lunch or right at 5pm (instead of lingering/chatting with coworkers at end of day...maybe I can even get one of them to go to the gym with me so that we can chat/catch up while on the treadmill at the gym!).

I'm already going to yoga regularly and either bike or play tennis on the weekend. So I think adding 2 gym days will be good.

My plan is: Cardio-mostly walking.
I've been trying to start doing more toning and strength, but when I started my program I got tendinitis. So, now the plan is to do more toning and strength, but take it slowly.

I'm training to walk a half marathon in mid December, so that's setting my whole exercise agenda right now. (cross training and strength training are included in the schedule, and I always need to do yoga a stretches to support my hips and lower back for the long walks)

Hi! I have not had a good 3 days, especially busy and I let Beck slide so I am going back to the beginning of Week Two Day 8. I plan to do my water aerobics at least 3 times a week and walk 30 minutes at least 3 times a week and on the other 4 days do at least 10 minutes of walking or exercise and increase from there. Everyone have a great Sunday. WE CAN DO THIS!! June emoticon

My exercise plan is to add in at least one daily walk at work - it's about 2/3 of a mile indoors if I walk a certain lap around the medical center - and to work up to daily or near-daily exercise on the Wii, using EA Sports Active: More Workouts. I tried the Wii Fit before, but am not fond of it; EA Sports Active really makes you sweat! For now I'm doing the easy ~12-minute warm-up/cool-down set, and when I get to the point where I can exercise on it every day without my muscles absolutely screaming at me, then I want to do their 30-day challenge mode.

If I get bored by that program or need a break, I have Just Dance 2 for a quick, fun dance to do.

Right now I am doing the 5K your way on on the off days I usually either play the WII with my dd or do an exercise DVD. I have a ton of exercise DVDs that I love. Some of my favorites and Dancing with the Stars, The Firm, Leslie Sansone, and Biggest Loser. I am also thinking about buying me and my dd bikes so we can bike around town every now and then. Also may join the Y and go swimming!!!! YAY! I just want to have lots and lots of choices or I will get bored.

Be blessed,
Dawn

I really like the Schuler book. I don't have weights yet, except for 1 gallon water jugs that I use. I am doing the warm-ups, and then some strength training from SparkPeople, and then some power walking--three times a week, or at least twice, depending upon how much heavy gardening and cleaning I am doing. emoticon
EDIT
Oh, and some stretching--10-25 minutes after the power walking.

I attempted to put this all together in a strength training program, but it would not come back up the next day.

My exercise plan now that it's winter is to do a Leslie Sansone walk DVD most days to help keep my steps up. On days that I have more time to do a 1 mile in the morning and then after work to do my 3 mile ones. I'm restarting after Christmas and I've decided to start out slow with some of the easier ones than I was doing. I had been doing jogging and intervals which are good, but I think I did too much too fast and ended up with some soreness and pain. So, I'm taking it slow. I keep track of my steps for insurance purposes. Last fall I was doing large amounts of steps daily and then on weekends sometimes doubling that. I was walking constantly. When I had to go inside, I got frustrated the steps were adding up as quickly. So, I've allowed myself to cut back to a lower number. If I can get more, I will. But, I will wait to do the big numbers when I can get back outside. Right now I'm getting other benefits such as an upper body workouts.

This is one I had thought out the first time through Beck, but I'm recommitting to it now. My planned exercise is a 30-45 minute walk with the dog every morning unless the weather doesn't cooperate, in which case I will do one of my yoga DVD's.

When I made this plan in September, I wasn't sure how it would work through the winter because I live in Wisconsin. My biggest problem exercising outdoors in the winter is actually the dark more than the cold. It's pretty daunting to venture out in the dark and cold at 6:00 am in January, but when I do it, I enjoy it quite a bit. It's really quite gorgeous and quiet to be out before dawn. I'm an outdoorsy girl, so the treadmill or stationary bike or other indoor workouts always don't work for me on a long-term basis.

Anyway, the rule of thumb I'm trying out this winter is that if the wind chill is above 10 degrees, I'm outdoors but otherwise I will stay in and do yoga. Now I just need to work on developing the habit. I did trudge through a few inches of snow to walk for half an hour this morning and it was actually pretty fun -- the dog loves it too! The next few days, the wind chill is below zero, so I will be indoors for sure.

My biggest problem with planned exercise (other than working up the courage to go out!)is getting distracted in the morning. When I worked on Day 8, I worked out a different morning routine that doesn't involve me getting on the internet before I exercise, so I'm hoping that helps.

Oh, I forgot about spontaneous exercise. I'm actually good about taking the stairs at work and parking far away in parking lots, so I'll just remember to do that, and also I am super-lucky to have a gym at work (my office is an old elementary school), so I can also make time to go up and walk a few laps on my breaks a few days a week. The other thing I've been wanting to make time for is ice skating -- we have a great indoor olympic rink nearby -- but that feels a little too ambitious right now so I'll just sit on that idea for now.

I do good with the scheduled exercise, because I have a set rotation for Turbo Jam that I'm completing, but not so good with the spontaneous exercise. I'm going to have my desk at work changed to standing height which will help me out here.

I haven't been checking off spontaneous exercise on my Skills worksheet because I didn't think I did any. But I actually do. The parking garage at work is 5 blocks from my building. That's spontaneous exercise. Instead of taking the elevator in the building, I use the stairs. I need to give myself credit for this.

As for planned exercise, I walk my dog at for at least an hour every day, and I take a 15-20 minute walk on campus every day. I'm going to start using the New You Bootcamp videos from Coach Nicole again. I plan to do two videos (20 mins) every other day to get some targeted toning exercise.

Hi all,
I joined the group but haven't been active until now.
The exercises I am doing at the moment are
walking 30 min in AM before work 6:30-7:00
and alternating between Zumba and T-Tapp after work 5 days a week. (well that is my plan) and so far so good this week.
OLDOWL- I highly recommend T-Tapp for anyone suffering with any injuries. here is the webiste if you are interested www.t-tapp.com . They have discounts on the 3rd (i think)Tuesday of every month.

Wii Fit is my exercise of choice.
I prefer something I can do at home.
My favorites right now are Basic Step and Free Run.
I, too have pain issues.

I do not find movement fun! Only painful. In my youth I loved to dance, but that stopped with the broken ankle in 1989. I have a stationary bike. And a wii fit but they are both to hard on my bad back. I tried Curves, again too hard on the back. I tried the pool at the Y but my COPD is the problem there. The doctor said probably a reaction to the chlorine. I took a class on tai chi at the Senior Center. I do that for 10 minutes every day but it’s not much exercise. My doctor says exercise is good for my back just NO twisting the back. I’ve been going to the store 3 times a week and walking an hour leaning on a cart and counting it as a 30 min walk, but I hate it. Besides I can’t really afford it. I never get out of the store without buying something. I like walking outside on nice days but the uneven terrain is too hard on the ankle. Any suggestions on exercise?

This was easy for me as I am already exercising. I have a collection of Leslie Sansone walk/aerobics DVD, Pilates dvds, An old stationary bike, hand weight, stability ball, stretch band-resistance bands and a pedometer. So I have a mini gym at home. Oh yea I do strength training but I don't like it. I found out while reading the beck book that not do we lose fat but muscle too. That is not good. This was not in the book but we lose 1/4 muscle after the age of 20. I hate it but I smile and bear it. Do it anyway!!! The only thing that may keep me from exercising is sickness me or my kids. Other than that I am exercising. Even when I ate my worst I could always exercise. Since I am a stress/anger eater I will use exercise, prayer to combat the urge to eat at these times.

We have a fairly new car sorry for saying this but people are lazy and don't want to walk to far to the department stores. I have learned to park far away that way my car won't get all banged and scratched up. I see them riding around and around trying to find a parking place near the store. Huh when it warms up I hang the clothes out on the line (old fashioned in these times) electricity costs. Every penny saved is good. I wash dishes by hand not dish washer. Hey every movement helps out. I do have a hand grater and I use it but when there is a rush I do take out the old trusty food processor.

I don't do much outside activities I have wicked allergies and I don't want to get started. So most of my workouts are inside. Unless I need a change up and go to local college and walk in the student center.


I wrote this from an older post:

Updated: THIS WAS USUALLY THE EASIEST FOR ME A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. I've lost some of my motivation to exercise "consistently". I have some health challenges at times I do not have the strength to exercise after cleaning the house top to bottom. So I use heavy house cleaning as exercise. I've recently brought a yoga dvd from the BL for a change in routine. IT IS good and it get you sweating. Asthma is a factor so as much as I would love to do a 60 min session of exercising daily that in not going to happen. For days I've done my best I will not allow anyone including my Mouthy Dr to discredit my efforts. I still use the clothes line when the weather permits and hand grater is busy. On occasion I do walk a ways to the store and not park so that my car gets dents on it. I need to pick things up though... emoticon patience and keep trying Girl emoticon GO GRACE GO!

As I put in my schedule for day 8, I already have the planned exercise set. The spontaneous exercise is soooo much harder now that I don't have a job. And since I don't have a job I rarely go shopping unless its for food. So..... I will have to get creative with that right now.. but this is what I have so far.


I will incorporate spontaneous exercise by:

* going outside with the dogs
* going outside and just walking around
* doing a little cleaning here and there (I admit it. I'm spoiled, my hubby does most of this emoticon )

I will incorporate planned exercise by:

* doing 60 minutes of cardio and/or strength exercise 6 days a week. This seems like a lot, and some days I may not use all 60 minutes, but I'd rather over schedule time and under schedule. This way when I DO get a job, I will already be in the mindset that I need to make sure I have enough time for exercise.

I have fit exercise in my day by going to a weight lifting class 2 times a week, then doing cardio 5 times a week--eliptical machines, treadmill, etc. or if weather cooperates I run or cross country ski. The one thing I also do because I need to is walk the dog. (She also likes to ski with me--she walks in my tracks!) I may not feel like going out in the cold but either I walk her or she digs in the garbage and pees on the rug! emoticon

My exercise plan is going well:

I walk Joey the puppy 3/4 mile--takes 15 minutes daily
I work out with weights/machines at gym 3 times per week for about 20-30 minutes
I walk most days--generally 20-40 minutes
I bike when it is nice - generally 30-60 minutes
I play pickleball when I can 1-3 times a week for 90 minutes

I rarely have a day with zero exercise.

I have decided to do exercise videos at home 4x per week first thing in the morning. Then, I will take my dog on a 30 min. minimum walk 2-3x per week. In order to meet this goal, I will have to get up earlier, but it will be worth it. I know I will feel so much better about myself if I could just commit to regular exercise and stick with it. One of my advantages to losing weight is to feel better about myself too - go figure! I will also use the extra morning time to pack a healthy lunch and snacks every day. It's too hard estimating the calories of take-out, even if you think you have made healthy choices.

I had this all worked out before even reading Beck. I tend to exercise regularly with occasional breaks (reason not yet understood).

I am going forward with my usual stuff but allowing myself all the time I want to work up the amount of time or mileage.

This is particularly important to me. At 62 I noticed that my failure to do weight work led to weakness. I can get off the floor easily in the morning but my evening I have to struggle a bit to get enough strength to get up. So I have been back at the gym. I started with 10 minutes 3 times a week. Sunday I was able to do 20 minutes without looking at the clock wishing I was finished.

I have a big issue with consistency. I've been doing better lately, but usually I just realize I've tapered off to not exercising at all. Not sure why.

My exercise plan is to do a strength training DVD at least 3x/wk. I've been trying to consistently do either the 30 Day Shred or Prevention 3-2-1. I really need to work on just making myself do SOMETHING. I need to remember 5 minutes is better than nothing.

I used to dance regularly and work out but I've been kind of hit or miss since I moved out to Vegas. So, I'm looking forward to getting back in an exercise habit.

For my spontaneous exercise:
Some type of leg exercise (lifts, squats, lunges) while I'm waiting for things.
Arm curling my hand-basket when I'm in the store.

For my planned exercise:
I think I'll star with doing one of the "Lift Weights to Lose Weight" segments once a week, one yoga or pilates once a week, and one cardio either dance or walking or a video once a week. So 3x a week I will be doing something.

For my planned exercise:
right now I'm in the pool 5 nights a week. Water Walking and Aqua Aerobics. The 5th night I take my son to do laps.
Walking is next on my list I plan on doing that 6 days per week. Walking is free, you can change locations, I prefer walking down by the river. If it is too hot, too cold, rainy, icy or whatever; I have a Walk Away the Pounds DVD ,the mall or a one mile walk (free online)

I've been running and strength training for so long, I think my body is just used to it. While it's kept me from regaining a lot of the weight I've lost in the past(with the exception of those pesky 8 pounds that just keep coming and going), my body is bored,and I think that's one of the reasons my loss and motivation have stalled for so long.

So, for this task, I ordered Turbo Jam and Hip Hop Abs off Ebay, and I am going to incorporate them 3 days a week, alternating with my treadmill runs...I'm totally excited...I've heard those workouts really make a difference!

Maybe I'll actually get some rock hard abs for the first time in my life! emoticon

Yuck! An exercise plan?

I bought an elliptical, so 3 times per week on that is my primary plan. My alternate plan is a bit more complex: I'm trying to find 8 activities I enjoy and schedule each of them once/month. So far I have Indoor Rock Climbing (I've gone twice this week) and Yoga.

Today is and today I am.

I've got my routine for the summer: I'm laying off of weight lifting for a while (just 1x/week so I don't lose muscle) and doing much more core and whole body work. Taking water aerobics 2x/week. This is a good break from my Jan-April routine which was heavy on weight lifting and walking. In fall I'll need to regroup again both because of my schedule and because any exercise plan becomes routine after a few months-- body needs new things!

I'm into a pretty good exercise routine already. I workout at home or in classes at the gym 5-6 days a week. I don't do enough sporatic exercise though. Once I am home at night and I've worked out, I can be pretty lazy.
I must say so far on Beck my favorite thing is the response cards. I read them 2-3 times a day and they've been really good at brainwashing me. The best one I have made reminds me that I don't deserve to eat like crap because I had a hard day- I deserve better than that.

(Catching up with yesterday's post for Day 8 and today!)

My knees have been a problem recently, so I went out and bought myself new sneakers and am recommitting to twice daily personal PT sessions.

Other activities:
1. Now that the weather is good, I'd like to incorporate walking back into my daily regime, but we'll see how the knees go first. If it's a day where I need to exercise at home, I also picked up some DVDs.
2. When I was on the road for my theater work, I had a daily routine of Pilates (Winsor), yoga (combo of Rodney Yee and OM Yoga), and a short ballet barre that lasted about an hour. I'm slowly building back into this.
3. I have a membership at a local gym, where I've been using the weight equipment, treadmill and elliptical (last two alternating). They also have a pool (heated, since the gym is connected with a PT office!), so I have plenty of options to mix things up. (Day 8's step is more of the issue :-)

Have also joined the QuickFire Challenge Team and the new Sweatsuit to Swimsuit SP Challenge Team as a way to remain accountable to the exercise portion in a specific way.

I am on day 9. I am doing wall push ups every time I go in the bathroom at work, 25 each time. I am walking in the afternoon about 3:30 on my break. I do want to add some leg exercises that I got from physical therapy awhile back. I really need to do those. I haven't got started with those yet. I will do my best to do some of those tonight.

I had been doing the 30 day shred in the winter, but now that the weather is getting nice, I want to get outside more. I plan to run or kayak at least 3 times a week, and do at least a 10 minute pilates video on the days that I don't do that.

I started my exercise plan a week ago without even realizing I would need to do this. I have been doing 30-40 minutes on the elliptical every day and the plan is to start adding strenght training 2 days a week.

I am going to make it a point to add more unplanned exercise to my day by parking at the end of the parking lot at work and always taking the stairs.

reread this one too, this morning. given that I'm not regularly doing anything, I think it's important for me to start slow, but keep it consistent. So, I'm going to join my summer tennis partners on their sunday afternoon doubles matches, go to beginners yoga on saturdays, and force myself to go to the gym one time during the week. So far today, I almost bailed on going to yoga, but I did go and I feel so much better. Tomorrow, I will be joining them at tennis and then the gym will be a good oppty to blow off some steam/stress during the week.

I got into it the hard way -- my back went out bad on labor day and this program has been awesome for rehabbing it.

Your goals are great -- consistency at a reasonable level is absolutely best! And you've got the bases covered with walking and strength training.

Wow... Run2ride... very impressive workout goals.

This step is probably my least favorite. Being consistent is my goal. I'm committing myself to a minimum of 10 minutes of walking each day and strength training 3x a week.

Yesterday I walked for 21 minutes... I'm a wonder... LOL.

Jan: CORE - 4days/week, yoga 2x/week
Feb: keep yoga, switch to NRL4W 2x/week and add elliptical/running - build up to 20 miles/week by May 1st

My challenge: daily workouts done by 7AM

Yes, she does. Its a form of strength training with the walking. I think it must be her creation since I haven't seen it anywhere else. Its a belt that you can attach tubing to to work your upper body as you walk.

Her dvd's do incorporate strength with the cardio, which is a plus! Good Job!

I'm jumping ahead, but I think I need to. Also, this is one I've been working on. I'm doing Leslie Sansome during the week when I'm away. At home either Leslie Sansome or the treadmill. Now, just to get serious and make doing the walks a priority. I am thinking Leslie is a good idea since she builds in some strength which is my problem area.

You definitely have to start slow and work your way into it. If you go too fast and hurt yourself, you can't do anything.

I'm planning on starting slow. Due to medical limitations with my heart, my doc said I cannot use exercise as a weightloss tool. I'm planning on using the treadmill daily for 5 minutes then increasing my minutes as I feel able. I'm also planning to try to walk outside a little 3 times a week with my boys in the evenings. I have a Total Gym, I may try that MWF for just a little bit of weight training. Again, all of it depends on how I feel with my heart.

ALL health conditions can be improved through good nutrition.

Eat well today, feel better tomorrow.

Don't forget to add a little strength training also! It helps build muscle which burns more calories than fat. Also helps everything look better!

I love, love, love TJ - I have the original set but would really like to get some of the new stuff, as I am getting a little burned out on the same old...

Well my exercise program will be:

1) My Gym: Elliptical Machine / Bow Flex (30 min.)

2) Turbo Jam: Cardio Party or Strength & Burn videos (40 min.)

3) Walking my dog once a day

I will shoot for that! Any other SPONTANEOUS exercise that comes along with it will be a bonus.

I love the quote, "Five minutes is better than ZERO minutes, and it's essential for me to break my exercise habit" because it is so true that when I make that decision I cannot do the full thing, I tend to give up.

I have this response card posted on my door leading to the gym... I hope this works!!

Kool! I have one of the Turbo Jam packs but I haven't been consistent enough to really get into using it -- but that's going to change!

Yeah, I have the 30 Day Shred DVD, it's great! Jillian isn't your typical perky energetic fitness instructor, but I like her style. Somehow she starts saying encouraging things at the EXACT moment I'm thinking about stopping! How does she do that? I also have quite a few Turbo Jam DVDs - all of the original (now called "Maximum Results") package and the Fat Burning Elite package, plus the sculpting band and resistance band. I want all of them, and all I'm missing are the two live workouts and the two stability ball workouts. Hopefully soon I'll even be in good enough shape to use the weighted gloves with the workouts I have!

I may have to change it in a month or so to prevent a fitness plateau, but it'll work just fine for now. emoticon Luckily, the 30 Day Shred comes in 3 different levels; right now I'm doing level 1, so as my body adjusts that will be an easy change - go to level 2!

I am all over this step! I LOVE this step! Exercise is one of the things that keeps my mood regular and elevated, so it's a vital part of my life. That said, I wasn't doing it regularly until about 3 months ago. You know the cycle . . . feel tired, don't exercise, get more tired, don't exercise, etc.

Now I exercise every single day and I LOVE it!!! My current exercise plan, starting tomorrow since my schedule is changing, is:

Monday: Turbo Jam Punch Kick and Jam
Tuesday: 30 Day Shred, Turbo Jam 20 Minute Workout
Wednesday: Turbo Jam Cardio Party Mix 3
Thursday: 30 Day Shred, Turbo Jam 20 Minute Workout
Friday: Turbo Jam Cardio Party Mix 2
Saturday: Turbo Jam 3T, Turbo Jam Fat Burner
Sunday: Any workout I want, either a video or at the gym

I do a stretch routine after every workouts. The above is daily cardio with 3 strength workouts. Leaving Sunday flexible allows me to go easy or push hard, depending on how I feel. On days I want to push myself I'll do endurance training since I'm going to attend two 5K races in November.

For spontaneous exercise, I park far away from wherever I'm going, when I can remember to (hmmm time to put a response card in the car). I take stairs whenever possible. I do all the grocery shopping for my house and walk all over the store.

Step 9: DONE! emoticon

This one is pretty easy for me. About a year ago, I set my self a goal of running our local 5K - and now it's just 2 weeks away!! gulp!

But I am in the habit of regular cardio, strength and stretching so now it's just monitoring and keeping it going...

The July exercise post on this team really helps keep me accountable - I haven't skipped a planned exercise session since I put it there! Thx! :)

Day 9 - DONE

My ticker represents 6 years of learning and losing (and regaining a bit) - I'm NOT going back! I *AM* fit 4 life!!

I have one ground rule regarding exercise. I MUST devote 15 minutes MINIMUM to exercise. Usually I do much more, but at least this.

In addition, I am following a strength training program through Global-Fitness.com. I work out 4 times a week with the weights. I'm actually loving this, it is not a struggle to do this the way it is to get my behind on the treddy.

My spontaneous exercise is pretty basic. Each time I go to the bathroom (which is pretty often with all the water I've been drinking), I do 20 push-ups against the bathroom sink. With my feet wedged against the tub, I am at a pretty good angle. I hope to add pilates in soon, too. I am sure I can do little 5 minute spurts here and there.

I like doing videos; it seems like you're with a group I guess. I've been doing the Walk Away the Pounds videos which don't involve jumping around or take much space at all, but she adds strength training in with it and it's a pretty good workout. The one I got had a 1-mile which takes 18 minutes; a 2-mile which takes 30 minutes and a 3-mile which takes 50 minutes -- so you can do as much as you have time for.

I'm starting out with walking. I ordered a pedometer yesterday and once it comes I want to start logging 10,000 steps a day.

But I also want to get back into doing strength and more intense cardio. I have a problem in that I have very little room to do exercise in - I used to exercise in my basement, but it's been under construction for a while and I have no other room in my house with large amounts of floor space.

I've checked out a couple of the SP exercise videos and they seem more do-able in a small space, so I'll give it a try anyway. One thing is I'll have to do it in my bedroom, and I'm worried that the noise of the video & thumping around will awaken my daughter in the morning (she's in the next room, and our house is small with thin walls). I'll have to see how it goes.

This is so hard for me - I leave the house for work at 7:30 and there are NO gyms open before then. By the time I get home at about 5, make dinner, eat, clean the kitchen - I'm exhausted and it's getting too close to bedtime anyway to exercise. A little walking after dinner doesn't bother my sleep though.

Really my only option other than walking is videos in the morning, I just need a place to do it where there is enough room and doesn't disturb the rest of the family's sleep.

Remember, I'll be a better parent if I am alive and healthy to see my daughter grow up than if I keep a spotless house. Take the time for exercise! The dust won't kill us.
********************
Here is how I will motivate myself.

6.25 - Take a day off work, just for myself
12.5 - $50 yarn spree
18.75 - New clothes!
25 - Maryland Sheep & Wool!

Exercise is one of those things that once you really get into the habit, you miss it when you can't do it. I feel soooo much better when I exercise and I get much better, too. Unfortunately when I get really busy exercise is one of the things that gets bumped! I'm working on that though!

Good Job, Do2Heal!
