Just thought I'd pop in and say hello. I made it on to the elliptical this morning. Now to do that everyday!

Heh. I dream of the 90s. :) It's somewhere in the just-above-zero range up here in Toronto. :) Today was about 12 degrees Celsius. You do the math.

I had a lovely 3 mile walk to celebrate finishing up a tough problem at work.

Cheers,
Maya

I haven't checked out home team in a long time. I need a kick in the butt to get back with everything. The first thing I need to do is record my nutrition (Oh how I hate that). I started wearing my pedometer last week, my daily goal is minimum of 10,000. Today I will add some strength.

Hope to see you guys daily.

Way to go Maya....I am glad to see you are still fighting to attain a healthy lifestyle....I guess it is going to take us a bit longer but we are determined to GET THIS DONE!!

I lost 6 pounds in 3 weeks so I am really happy. I hurt my back yesterday and am unable to workout so I am resting and fighting the urge to grab those nasty snacks.

I hope you have a great weekend!

Well, it was awfully cold this morning, but I skated anyway. Told myself "just ten minutes". Managed to stretch that out to 20, and then the sun rose and totally changed my mood. Wound up with 45 minutes of skating! Yay!

My pal cancelled on the skating, deciding the rink was too crowded for comfort. But we made lemonade - went out and watched a movie, instead. That was fun and the movie itself was entertaining.

Not getting stressed over the little things is one of my goals for the year! :)

I've skated every single day this week: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, so far. And I plan to skate the remaining 3 days as well. Sunday will probably be my day off.

Mini success: I got kicked off the ice this morning because they needed to clean up after the heavy snow from last night. I compensated - decided I would skate at least ten minutes after work - managed to get in fifteen!

And tomorrow I plan to do an hour.

Whee! Good to see so many of us still being active and posting successes.

My little success ... started taking "complete beginner to ice skating" lessons in December. Have been practising off and on. Today I amazed myself by staying on the ice and skating pretty steadily for about 80 minutes! Fun!

I never realised how much of a core workout ice skating can be - I really felt my back muscles as I was skating all that time!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!

Cheers,
Maya

I worked out for the first time with thw Wii Active2 and could only do 6 minutes. That may sound like a failure, but I'm developing a plan to get through an entire workout in a day. I will not be defeated!

Maya, Congrats on keeping up with NaNoWriMo! That's a lot of work. I'm in a writing group that meets weekly and everyone except me is doing NaNoWriMo. I just knew I wasn't going to be able to put in enough time. Instead, I am trying to simply write daily, but it's not been consistent. On the other hand, I'm doing more writing than I was a bit ago, so that's progress as well. I am feeling better and have been working this week. A crazy job schedule has helped me out. Due to working on Saturdays the next couple of weeks, I don't have to be at work for more than 2 days in a row until the week after Thanksgiving. So, I'm sort of on "light duty" and that has helped relieve some of the stress. Deb

Deb, good work, taking that time off when your body needs it. Keep listening to it!

And MushCat, YAY on doing that yoga routine twice - I don't know if I could have done that. I am usually happy enough to say YAY, when I'm done ONE round! :)

My success: I've been really busy at work, and yet I managed to do two things that take a significant amount of time, every day last week: I made time for at least an hour of exercise every single weekday, and I actually wrote enough to keep on track with my NaNoWriMo target. It feels good to know I can actually even more in a certain number of hours if I simply stay focused.

Cheers,
Maya

My success today is that I'm not feeling well, and have actually been taking care of myself. Low activity, popsicles for my sore throat, got out some craft projects for something easy to do tonight, And I already called in sick for tomorrow. Usually I try to tough it out, but I was doing that last week, and all that happened was that I got sick. Deb

Thanks, Maya! I am feeling really good these days. I went folk dancing on Friday for the first time in years. I actually remembered some of the dances, and got a bit of a workout in. Friday night is a good time for it too. I usually don't do anything on Fridays except come home from work and collapse. The dancing is a good incentive to get off work on time, plus it is good exercise and works off all that work week stress. I can't wait to go back!

Deb, that's awesome! Great work!

I'm working on getting back to the below 200 pounds range next week or so. Sad to say I'd crept up a GOOD bit above 200, but happy that I am now working it off again. :)

Over the last couple of months, I've been slowly losing weight a few pounds at a time, with a few ups and downs due to random events: too much salt, more/less exercise, etc. I'm happy to say I've now kept the lbs off for the last 3 weeks. Yay!

Yesterday, I got plenty of exercise at the local Tea Festival, so I'm feeling good about that, too.

An unusual success for me today. For years now, I've been drinking DIet Pepsi. Recently, though, I've discovered I prefer the flavour of Coca Cola Classic, and I've been drinking at least one most work-days.

Today I am proud that I had PLANNED to drink a second can at dinner time, but after dinner, I simply wasn't in the mood. I'd had plenty of water during the day, so I guess my body feels it doesn't need the bonus of sugar and caffeine! :)

Cheers,

Nice! I want kayak and canoe classes, too! Maybe next summer, hmm? I think this winter I want to sign up for ice skating lessons again - it's been a few years.

And for success - I finally succeeded in installing the whole darned Adobe suite of software ... YAY! Now I am working through the tutorials so I can get up to speed quickly.

Hi, all. I've been remiss getting on to SP lately, this being the reason for the belated reply, Maya. I got all my work for today done in about 7 hours (I usually work 8 hours). I spent the rest of the time getting caught up on backlogged paperwork. I've also started losing again. I think it is partly the exercise I am getting at work, but I've also upped my calories (!!). I've gotten rid of about 5 lbs so far in the last month. Blessings, Deb

Greg! Long time no see! Good work on getting in the 2 miles - just checked out your blog, too!

Deb, yes, please do come share your successes on here - you never know when someone will come by and check it out and get inspired! :) Plus, you deserve to have us celebrate your successes with you!

Moi? I've been walking. Not fast, not powerwalking, but just walking. And I walk LOTS! I've walked all over downtown the past couple of weeks, just because I wanted to. I've explored parts of the city I've never been in, and parts that I know and love. THe more I see of Toronto, the more I love it, it's just SO diverse!

Weight? Pretty much steady - I go up a few pounds and down a few pounds and mostly I guess I am just maintaining, just this side of 200 pounds. I think when the weather cools down a bit I will be ready to head back to the gym and knock off a few extra pounds, but right now my body is happy with this level of fitness and health so I am going to continue making healthy choices and enjoy my body even though it's bigger than I like. :)

Hope you're all having a fabulous summer!

Cheers,
Maya

Anyone still working on daily successes? I had a successful day today - I'd initially planned it to be a zero exercise day because I walked 8 miles yesterday and it felt like I was beginning to pull a muscle in my leg. But then this morning I felt fine, so I walked to work from the subway, and then walked again this evening for a total of 7+ miles with no pain at all.

Success! :)

Hi, all. My job is going well. It's still taking a lot of energy but it is getting better. I've been unemployed for so long that even putting in 8 hours a day is a bit of a challenge, and I've been taking a bit more time than that as I learn the routine.

Greg - congrats on running!

Maya, I think keeping up a walking routine while work has been crazy busy is *quite* an accomplishment.

Woohoo on running again, Greg!

Deb, hope your first half-week has gone well so far and you're enjoying your new job? Even if the first little while is stressful, I suspect you'll soon fall into a routine and then things get SO much easier! :)

I'm here, just been crazy busy at work.

All I can brag about is that I have continued to walk, and walk and walk almost every single weekday the past couple of crazy-long weekdays!

5 more miles walked today - this time in the hot sun (pre-noon, but still HOT!). Got a bit of a tan, and had a fabulous walk.

Thanks, Donna!

I walked 3 miles today. Looks like that is the only exercise I can actually promise I'll get this week ... too busy to make time for the walk AND the strength AND the swimming, so I'll keep the no-brainer for now. :)

It's swimsuit weather. So I got me a swimsuit. Let's hope the actual swimming will follow! :)

Cheers,

I had a lot of fun watching the little league parade and watching my DD's 1st games yesterday. This is her 3rd year playing, but her 1st year pitching and the coach says she's a natural at it. emoticon
