walked for 10 minutes because of my hip.
GOING FOR THE NEW AND FITTED ME
Today was a good day too. I am unable to exercise due to an illness, but I am going to try chair exercises. That is one of my goals for maintenance. Wish me luck. Y'all have a blessed night.
I walked the dogs six times today. I washed the bathroom and kitchen floors then opened the windows to dry them. It was awesome less humidity today and in the 70s. Best wishes on having a great day. Linda from bean town

I'm still feeling exhausted. I think it is just from the virus I had. Work has also been busy...go full speed all day and there is still more work to do at the end of the day than there was at the beginning. I got an order of fudge in the mail yesterday. It is made by monks in Oregon and they just started making it with my favorite hazelnuts. The good thing is, it is so rich that I can be satisfied with a small piece. Weight is doing OK but I need to cut back on the sodium.
Light bike in the evening
My wife tells me that my arms show progress. I don't know if it's the swim or the pushups. Anyway, motivating! :-)
Paris/Vienna time (GMT+1, Summer: GMT+2).

Just step-by-step. It goes a long way!
Cardio, core, weights, two Sparkpeople videos, stretching.
Yesterday a morning and an evening walk.
Good morning team! Don't think I'll ever adjust to this crzy work schedule - 20+ years of back and forth mornings, mids, and evening (sometimes as late as 11PM) and it STILL drains me. I am learning, however, to not turn to food to sooth myself (at least all of the time). On top of the crazy schedule which is very night heavy this week, it has been exceptionally rainy, hot and humid. Had a good ST workout yesterday and had planned to go for a run this morning at 9AM, but with temps already in the 80's and the humidity like it is, I opted out and will do a little stretching and some ST before work today and then tomorrow (day off) have my run/walk with the transitional/homeless group and hopefully it won't be too bad and I can get in some extra miles. Tomorrow night is my Drills and Hills class, so, if I don't get in the extra miles in the AM, I'll go early and do them there.

With summer finally here, and the temps just right, I've been "spring cleaning".. that is washing all the household heavier items like blankets, duvet covers, etc and line drying them all. I sure love the smell of those fresh lined dried blankets and sheets..
Next it's shampoo the carpets that I have, and thank goodness I don't have many!.. and then of course squeeze in all the necessary exercise and make sure I keep all activity in balance so I don't end up making my arthritis flare up too much!!
Have a great day everyone..

I'm with Besshaile today. My performance on my gold-star calendar has been anything but shiny this month. Yesterday was the first day I got all three stars for the goals I'm tracking.

In a hurry this morning, but wanted to run by and say hi! Have a great day!
Woke up early and hit the trail for a 6 mile run.....going to get in my strength training and clean my living room, mop and vacuum all the floors.
Meals for today are pre-planned. Too hot to cook, so we're eating lots of fruits/veggies and tuna sandwiches.
We are taking my Tahoe in for new tires this afternoon. I hate to shell out the cash, but it's needed.
I'm hoping for time in the garden, but not sure it will happen. We're supposed to get some ugly weather this afternoon:(

A big high five to you Monte! Excellent way to start the day.
As Maree said, very humid today. We are expecting bad storms today and I have to drive 40 minutes to a meeting this afternoon. At least I'll be able to go home afterward.
I got three walks in yesterday, worked on building to a two-minute plank (one of my July goals), then did a few SP stretching videos (another July goal, more stretching).
Onward with the Tuesday!

today is a off day for me so will get in a easy walk and maybe a bike ride later. Lots of walking and steps today as i get ready for a mega busy weekend that requires lots of prep stuff. Have a great one everyone.
MOVING AND MAINTAINING. Yesterday is gone, let it go, tomorrow hasn't happened, don't long for it. Today is the present .........enjoy it
Good Morning, Everyone! Hope all is well and you are embracing your journey!
Occasionally, I look back over the last 32 months and remind myself of what I did to attain my goals. That replay recharges me and I insure that I'm still fueling the fire to be the healthiest I can be. I believe focusing on the positive has only strengthened my lifestyle.
Seize the day! Don't believe you're in the 5%. KNOW you're leading the 1%!

alas - I finished the week with a calorie/points overload, though I surprised myself with the amount of activity I got in durng a sloth week.
ah well. I begin again. And I'll start with my favorite - a green smoothie.1 cup V8Fusion Lite in strawberry/banana flavor, 1/2 cup fat free vanilla almond milk, 1 cup frozen spinach, a squeeze of grated ginger and 1 frozen banana. Utter bliss on a summer morning.
Today it's the stationary bike and strength training after work.
I hope you're all making it through the trials of summer weather.
Looking forward to yoga class this morning. Have a good one, Maintainers!
Go slow to go fast.

Good morning! We are in the midst of a humid heat wave which is not so conducive to extra walks outside. I worked till 6 pm and wanted to go to the grocery store, go for a walk with DH and brought work home. I was too tired and DH didn't want to walk in the heat. I gave in to what my body needed and went to bed at 8:30.
I'm heading to the gym for 30 min cardio and 60 min Pilates class.
Hope all have a happy and healthy day!
