It would be nice to see Lauren be a couch potato. My bet is it would not last very long though! emoticon

That's couch POTATO Lauren, not couch slug. I think I'd prefer the pampered princess role, myself--but to each her own. emoticon

Lauren,
While I am delighted to hear that you are recovering so quickly and feeling better couldn't you choose more fun stuff to get some activity? Housework doesn't sound like much fun to me. I know it has to be done, but it is just not fun.
I'm really just teasing you now. I'm happy tht you are feeling up to getting back to your normal routine and I know how good it feels to just be able to do a simple chore again. I makes me feel useful so I imagine it does you as well.
Don't overdue. (now say meekly, "Yes, mother") emoticon emoticon

The past two days I've puttered around the house up on my feet for a few hours at a time, instead of laying down. I've managed to get in straightening up, dust mopping floors, cleaning off stove and counters, that kind of stuff, to try and return to some kind of regular activity. It's a start!

I actually took it easy today. My stomach has been acting up so I only did one WATP DVD today. It was the 5 mile challenge. I was chasing around a 2 yo as well all day so I figure that's a workout too.

I'm moving this to the top. PJ was looking for a place to post daily/monthy walking totals. This would be a good place to do that. Let's use this for listing whatever exercise we are doing. It may give us some new ideas of exercises we might want to try. Ok, so I am looking for some new ideas and I thought maybe others would want some too.

I surprised David by still wanting to go to the gym today, even though I was exercising right before he got home this morning at 1:20am. I think he thinks I'm nuts. Unfortunately he's still feeling kinda punky, and wasn't able to do his usual at the gym. But he did make the effort and that's all that matters. I did treadmill for 40 minutes, and 15 minutes of strength-training.

HA! Lauren,
I was doing 3 miles of the 5 mile challenge at midnight. Then I did yoga so I was exercising at the same time you were. Wacky Walkers is right! We have to be Wacky to be up so late at night doing out exercise!

Well, I followed Pattys and Alexs lead and did 2 miles of the Leslie Sansone 4 Mile Challenge tonight, at 12:40am. What a time to be exercising! I gotta say that I loved it! Be darned with the tenant upstairs! He makes his share of noise, that we, throughout the side and whole bottom of the house can hear, and we don't fuss about it, so I guess he'll have to put up with this, cause I'm going to do this more often! emoticon

As it turned out, I am eating too little! For the exercise I've been getting I should at least get 2100 cals and up to 2600.

A friend advised me to up the intake little by little and I likely will not have to deal with the weight gain that happens sometimes when adding more cals.

I guess I will slack off on the exercise just a little too until I get this all balanced out. And I did so good today too, lol...over 1500 cals burned but not worth risking my health over it. I'm glad you suggested I find out.

And that is a consideration, Tonya. I'm not up to speed about that, but you may want to consider shooting an email to Coach Jen and getting some more info about it. I've just never exercised over what I've taken in, therefore, explains my ignorance on the subject. Let us know if you find anything out. I'm sure Tabby might be interested in it too.

I just write down how many minutes of whatever I want to do per day and shoot for the stars...It seems to work better for me this way and I usually even make it over my original goal. The only thing I worry about is whether or not I'm eating enough to handle that much exercise.

Hello all! I am back online now. My internet connection is acting up a bit which is annoying on so many levels but on the positive side, when the computer acts up, I go exercise.
Yesterday, I did a couple of WATP dvd's. Three of them actually. Felt really good!

My upbringing was not the best either, nothing on my parents, but other relatives and caregivers. So I can really at least try to understand what you are going through. I think everyone has a tool to help "drown" the sorrows of the past. For me it was Food. As strange as that sounds, I felt like the bigger I got the less attention I would get, which was not true in the end and sure was not worth it. That's why I'm here.

And please don't mistake what I am saying as putting you down. That is sure not what I want.I know how it feels to need an outlet. I still do not deal with my past very well but I am trying to turn that around step by step.

I hope you guys don't misunderstand me, but my dad was a devoted Christian, and he did not drink, but he was the most abusive person - physically and mentally - I feel the need to drink as a survivor, and to wash the memories. Spare the rod and spoil the child as we were hit with belts, sticks, etc. As I got older - teens - my dad and I had physical fights.
I see to much of my dads awful attitude in me, and I think thats why I am having a hard time today. Plz forgive me. Talk to you guys later. And thank God that the gun was not loaded. emoticon

I was never really one to drink. I think I got lucky. I could probably say at least 70 % of my family did drink or still do. When I was little I remember grabbing for my grandfather's beer and drinking it. I had to be around 3 or so then. Those kinds of things lasted a few years but I guess I got tired of the taste, kinda in the same way I hate bananas now but loved them back then until my mom stuffed us full of them all day long instead of cooking. So I guess I am just thankful I never ot addicted from that.

I don't have anything against drinkers in general. I just hate when it gets out of control.

While I may not have an alcoholic husband, I do have a work-a-holic one! That comes with it's own set of problems, like having to run around and pick kids of from various activities and making sure they get good healthy meals and their every need is met until the point where they finally go to bed and I get a breather before I go to bed exhausted!

Growing up, I have an older brother who I was unfortunate enough to watch become an alcoholic. He was a very mean drunk when he drank anything other then beer. I was the only one that was dumb enough to standup to him no matter how mean he got. Believe me I had my butt kicked on more then one ocassion. I remember one night, my mom came up and woke my sisters and I up in the middle of the night and made up go to my aunts house. When we came home in the morning to go to school, he had passed out on the couch. He woke up and took the gun (unloaded-but he didn't know) and held it up to my mom calling her names that no mother should be called. Stupid me, I jumped right up and in between the two of them!

Thank god, we have grown up and gotten smarter! It took a long time but I forgave him, I realized that it wasn't him or me, it was the booze. My Madelyn absolutely loves her Uncle David!

No one will love you until you love yourself! -My Mom

I used to like to drink, well I do like to drink, but I always start acting or talking like a mule. Can't seem to figure out why either.
Today I was posting on the topic of depression with others, I am always afraid that I come off the wrong way and feel it would be best if I didn't post at all. Anyhow, I know I am not the cheeriest person but I try to smile and laugh with others. Thanks for sharing with me. I do appreciate it.

Enough for me today

----------------------------------------
It was kind of the same between me and Rodas. I do love him and with two daughters in the teens and one on her way into it...well things can get hectic and stressful so 100 times that during the weekends when the drinking was going on. I don't normally discuss this either but I guess it helps to get it out instead of holding it in all the time like I have been. I would have liked to have been able to say I could work things out but I don't think its healthy for my children to be around the behavior. Heck, its not even healthy to me. But then again, Rodas is never quiet about things. It is like he thinks he suddenly needs to show off act up just for the fun of it.

Alcohol can really mess things up. My husband is a quite alcoholic. I rarely talk about it. He usually just starts with wine then bacardi & coke, and he starts to get squinty eyes and passes out. He has always been like this so I am used to it. I had a picture of him passed out on the floor next to the crib. I used to just throw a blanket over him at the end of the night and go stretch out in our bed. I guess you can say that I luv him 75% of the time.
I realize he has to deal with me and my baggage that I received growing up (thanks dad) so I take it as a trade off. I'm sure he probable luvs me 70% of the time too. We did however almost become ex's last year due to three girls becoming teens was overwhelming to us both. We found out our weakness in not agreeing on many parenting issues. I was over compensating for him not setting boundaries for the girls. We set the rules, and then he would not enforce them, leaving me to be the meanie. For a while I wanted to leave em all. Since I changed my attitude and became more leanient and not caring, everyone gets what they want. I guess we are pretty typical?

Well he's an alcoholic which is why he ended up the "ex" anyways because he just started acting too extreme. When sober he is a great guy but I have my family to think about. We stay for the most part at peace with each other but all it takes is for one of his buddies to start in about things while he is drinking then its like a firework explosion all aimed towards me. The good news is, it always passes once he sleeps/sobers up then life goes back to normal again. I don't feel like I can avoid it for now at least because most of what pays my bills and takes care of the kids comes from him. That is part of the reason why I'm going back to school..so I can provide for us without his help.

Today is actually much milder than usual. The high for today is only supposed to be 88 degrees. It's 86 at the moment. I'd love to out but having a situation here and just prefer to stay in.

I got up early this morning (as in with the sun--don't know why) and decided to exercise right after breakfast. I flapped the batwings in time to one of Leslie Sansone's Walk Slim programs. I did a lot of jumping and hopping too, but I never really took off! I think I recall when my husband took pitlot lessons that you have to get to over 60mph to get the lift needed. Sure felt like I was going fast enough this morning--i'll try harder--tomorrow. emoticon

I used my "get out of cardio day" card - to start the kids back to school. But I did help the librarian move over a ton of books for the 7th and 8th grade, so I did do some toning in the arms. If you have any extra get out of jail cards let me know!

WOW, 70 minutes...good for you, Bee! You're tired, but doesn't it feel grand! My workout today made me feel so much better than when I leave the gym. And I've wanted to do more because I feel good. But I know I need to rein it in, cause when I'm feeling well, I have a tendency to overdue. Just feels like I've been let out of jail, and I've never even seen the inside of a jail cell! emoticon

Cindy,
I'm looking at your weight ticker and I'm thinking you are already "in shape". You have done fantastic! I think grandchild chasing needs to be included in the spark fitness menu as a cardio exercise.

I chased my grandson today also. He is almost 18 months old. He started running at 9 months. He is a go-getter! Cutting lots of teeth all at once and not so happy atm:P He is what put the fight back in me to win my battle with my health problems. With his energy, I better get in shape! Big woot for all the Grandmas:)

Today was a good day here too! I've really stepped it up last week and now this one too. I'm up to 70 minutes on the trampoline (10 mins at a time) and have finally been able to take at least a short walk in the evening again.

Cindy, that is wonderful! And 30 minutes of dancing burns up those calories for you, too! Ever since I injured my knee, my biggest disappointment has been not being able to dance. But...not for long...as my knee is better than I had ever hoped for!

Today was a good day! After fighting with getting my THR up on my bike, I decided to do what I used to love to do for fun. I danced:P For 30 minutes, I just went all over the place. Granted I looked ridiculous but my heart rate went up fast, I had fun and the time flew by. I kept the curtains closed! haha!

Live strong, live long, smile much:)

Boy, Tonya, you're so right about that! And the more we laugh, the healthier we get. It's so good for helping with health problems. I know one famous man, of which his name escapes me at the moment, wrote about how he laughed his illness better. And he really did. So, everyone, keep on laughing!

OKAY--I did the Fit TV workout I mentioned earlier. I am now a quivering mass of muscle fiber--I'll be paying for this escapade tomorrow and beyond--but it was FUN!! So, I'll do it again. I also did some major, needed housecleaning and some Leslie Sansone DVD's (Walk-Jog and the 2 mile walk slim).

Great job everyone...any movement is good movement. After being a bump for so long I finally worked out this morning. Walked with Leslie Sansone on Free on Demand and then did step aerobics with Sharon Mann for a grand total of 50 mins of pure unadulterated aerobic steps even if I looked like hell afterwards. Thank goodness hubby wasn't around to enjoy the view! emoticon

Leslie DVD's today and an "all star Workout" that I taped from fittv. Haven't done it since May and I was sore for nearly a week afterward. I'll let you know if this time is better. It really was a good workout--deceptively simple.

Lol,
No surveyors! A good thing too. Gonna have to add something new to my blog on what not to do before jumping on the trampoline.

Basically those jeans I keep cheering about wearing now is what I was wearing yesterday and being time for a workout I didn't change. I unbuttoned the pants to be more comfortable and started jumping away. Phoosh down my pants go!! Now, this could have been a lot worse but after the last incident I moved the trampoline away from the window. HA.
