3/8 - 15 min walk, 30 min run, 15 min walk

Back to running an entire 30 min at a bit better than a 10 min mile! It's great to be feeling better!

As for my wiggle - use it or lose it!

2/25 - 60 min dance class
2/27 - 70 min walk/jog

Have been at my family's
2/26 - travel day
2/27 - baby shower for my DIL
2/28 - reception for my parents' 50th
3/1 - travel day

Loads of standing, walking, but really bad dietary habits!

LOL, Back in the Early Days of my diagnosed Fibro I used to try to share what I felt and what was happening? But the more I talked the less the DH seemed to hear or care- A personality defect? Or just a man issue? I also found out that when most people ASK How your doing? they really don't want to Know!

Lost a lb! 150 min. so far- Wogs, Yoga and some house cleaning- probably won't get in the Staionary Bike- but who knows? Flameco Dancing! sounds fun, too bad I don't seem to have the wiggle I used to have : (

Funny how we are supposed to suffer in silence while everyone is supposed to know how miserable they are!

2/24 - 30 min elliptical, strength training, 90 minute flamenco class (love the stomping and skirt swishing!)

I've gone & done it again- accidentally cut my fore-finger almost down the tip to 2 nd knucle on the inside while cooking last night- not pretty, but very painful and luckily doesn't need stitches. I'm on the hunt & peck and not too much gripping while exercising-
80 min. Yoga, very carefully! 5 mi. 30 min. stationary bike and a little crunches.

DH is still miserable and only happy if we all know it:(

I didn't say they weren't Cardio Activities? If you check my Workout Logs, I've used those too to log fitness minutes. But they are NOT considered Cardio Increasing Activities- www.fitnesshealthzone.com/exercises/
ca
rdio-exercises-for-burning-more-caloR>ries-and-maintaining-fitness/


The Dance is if it is for a extensive amount of time, but the rest have been re-classified as Functionally Fit Exercises. Take a look at the Presidents Fitness Link we posted a few weeks back too. Sex is considered a Cardio Activity too, but Sparks decided against listing it, the rest were added just to keep people encouraged to MOVE through out their day. And yes, if your out there whaleing away with an Ax like a logger for 30 min., shoveling/racking with lunges & squats which are usually necessary movements for these jobs (not to mention vacuuming the house and sweeping) or more it is definitely a Cardio/Strength activity combined.

These are some considered Functional Fitness- It isn't considered a put down as you seem to think it is!

You can check out my cardio experience with contra by viewing the following video. I'm the guy in white shorts and sometimes a white sweat band. This video is actually a medley of 5 different dances:

youtube.com/watch?v=QLK52um9kXo

As for the other "functional exercises" that I mentioned, they too are cardio exercises according to Spark People. They increase pulse rate and burn calories. Each is listed in the cardio exercises where we track cardio. Check them out. For each, calorie burning is calculated. I suspect that some of the "gardening" that I do is a whole lot more calorie burning than those listed for gardening, since they have listed average burn and I am clearing my land with spade, rake, saw,and axe. Believe me, I reach a higher pulse rate which sustains for the time I'm working...usually about two hours at a time.

I guess what I am saying is that I disagree that the exercises I mentioned are "functional" as opposed to cardio. Yes, they are functional, but they are also cardio.

That may be, though I guarantee that contra dancing is absolutely aerobic exercise.

I believe they've coined them "Functional Fitness" these days. Not necessarily Cardio or even considered Strengthening activities for keeping Bones Strong. But it does keep you better able to continue a normal lifestyle as you age, providing there aren't any risk of Osteoporosis in your family or health history.

Congrats! on the Fitness Points by the way!

For the most part, I prefer exercise that accomplishes something (like landscaping, dance, photo field trips, even walking or biking), though if we have another cold spell like we had recently, I may need to look into something like Pilates. Meanwhile, I do have some aerobic exercise discs that I can use during times when nothing else if available. :)

Well you never know until U try it? I just added a Link to the Team's Link on a How 2 for Basic Pilate's exercise. You might find it really helps ease the body and mind. Take care.

Dance always keeps me sparking, but then, so does landscaping, walking, bike riding, photo shoots (nature), etc. But I'll admit it: dance is #1.

Yep, I've vowed to start limiting my PC time! DH insists the widening of my butt isn't Granny Fanny but PC butt- Gravity from sitting too much! So I'm going to try to limit to 60 min. and exercise for 30 min. then I can come back if I need to. Especially since my Tinnitus is back! Ouch!

Have you tried watering everything regularly just like the produce farmers are doing? It works for me every year. I lose very little, the ice forms a protective shield and a clear plastic can help at night, you just HAVE to remove it when the sun comes out again or they will burn! Good luck with the alternative work outs. I am hoping to get a Hound Wog in tomorrow, heat wave of 35* by 3 PM.

I had a wonderful time at contra. I wish it were closer and that I could do that every night. Meanwhile, the frigid air has limited my landscape activities to trying to keep my tender plants covered. And in spite of attempts to protect, I continuously loose more and more of them with each new frozen day. This is the coldest winter on record for 30 years now (in Florida) and it is spelling disaster for agriculture and for landscapes. Even my walking and bike riding activities are quite curtailed by this frigid weather. At least I am getting some of my photography post processing accomplished. But that means sitting at the computer. Its great fun, but needs to be done in more limited quantities. Guess its time to pull out some of my aerobic DVDs, dust them off, and put them to good use.

Wow! Hard to believe the threats. And paranoid attitudes? I continue to wish you the best with your health.

I'm going contra dancing tonight. Its going to be a long two and 1/2 hour drive to Pinellas Park and an even longer 2 1/2 hour drive home when temps are below freezing and after a day of rain. Hopefully, the freeway will have dried from the traffic heat and wind. Gotta go though, 'cuz...gotta dance! I'm addicted!

NOT by much, and Leadership can be a Pain. You'll have to visit my Spark Page- sometimes I just give up on people and their paranoid attitudes! Not to mention I've had a few even threaten me here.

Interesting...another dog lover. You have some nice pics in your photo stream. On flickr, I'm Thomas.H1. But then, you probably know that by now.

I just got a camcorder. And I dance contra. You can check out my contra flick on You Tube. I'm the guy with white shorts, (often, but not always, a white sweat band). I've got my camcorder on a tripod and turn it on and off via a remote while I dance. This is the link to that:

youtube.com/watch?v=QLK52um9kXo

Now then, the light is terrible. Available light with high over head lights. Otherwise, it went pretty well. (New to this you know!)

Hi everyone!

Now, I'd like to tell everyone a bit about how I spent Christmas...

On Christmas day, I found myself singing..."I'm dreaming of a white Christmas." Now, nothing unusual about that, except that I live in SW Florida. But then I thought, "well, why not have a white Christmas?" So I spoke with my wife about it and we decided to brave the white outdoors.

This first picture is a picture of my wife taking a photo of her husband while walking on the white stuff in SW Florida.

flickr.com/photos/thomas_h1/42252407

While we were there, we decided to engage in that great winter sport, the building of a snow (er, I mean) sand man.

flickr.com/photos/thomas_h1/42252411

/


Now then, I enjoy shooting wild life (with a camera, that is). So I decided to show off some of the wild life walking the white stuff of SW Florida. This is a truly ferocious beast. If you don't believe me, try feeding just one of these. They all come at you begging, diving, dropping...well, you get the picture.

flickr.com/photos/thomas_h1/42252414

In SW Florida, wild life comes in all shapes and sizes. This picture is just one example of an adult showing its off spring how to survive the harsh winters of SW Florida.

Well, there you have it. My white Christmas. I hope you all enjoyed your white Christmas's as much as I enjoyed mine.

Oh yes, exercise. How does beach walking sound to you?

I spent 2 and 1/2 hours on my landscape project clearing a bit of the land yesterday, an action I shall repeat this morning. This relatively cool weather is really conducive to working out there, and the recent rains make clearing a possible activity.

Take care, I've been pretty bad with the exercise this week, what with illness & weather issues. I have been doing my Hound Wogs though maybe not today, its supposed to be some Severe Thunderstorms.

I'm going to go out in a bit and do some snow shovelling but mostly want some sun. The reflection on the snow is pretty bad though :-) need sun glasses.

Well...it is the wild west, sort of...well, SW Florida and inland, and it is pretty wild considering some of the critters walking and flying about. But then, of course, I certainly didn't mean to over do it...much.

You make it sound like the wild west, Tom :-)

We went grocery shopping and it was quite crowded. Walking the entire store and carrying/lifting bags to put them into the car and into the house and putting them away, etc. provides me a pretty good workout. I also did incline pushups on the car waiting for my husband to pay/come out.

I just got inside from helping unhook the hoses from summer and put up the outdoor Christmas lights. Wasn't very long period of time though.

I have decided I'm going to work on figuring out consistency, at least with my stair pushups. I take two strengths of thyroid and have to alternate them and think I'll do that with pushups. I normally just do 5 if I'm thinking about it, either on my stairs or, if I'm out grocery shopping with my husband, on the side of the car while I wait for him to pay and bring the groceries out. I think I'll alternate between 5 and 6 and after I've done them so they're "easy" I'll start with 6 and 7 and gradually build up. Of course, may never get beyond 5 and 6 if I don't get some consistency and do them enough, LOL.

Nothing "wimpy" about staying out of the rain. To me, it sounds like a sensible and healthy decision. Ah, and Salsa...what a wonderful way to burn calories. Perhaps someday I'll learn that form of dance.

Feeling much better thanks! Ditched the 5K because of weather (yeah, I am a wimp when it comes to being cold, wet, and driving my car through water). But, I am going salsa dancing with the girls in a bit. That should burn some calories!

Going to be shopping this afternoon. I know, not a lot of exercise compared with the usual, but its a necessary trip that will result in many stores and possibly not even one purchase. It also will involve a whole lot of walking.
Its wet, soggy, and raining today. Not likely to get outside to the landscape project.
Dancing last night was wonderful!

Last night two hours of English country dancing. I have a new camcorder and I am spending a great deal of time learning how to work with it. On one level, it is quite easy, but then, to work in low light or bright light situations, there are a number of things to learn; and then there are the 5 different movie modes to understand, and test, and play with...well, you get the idea. I'm having fun. emoticon

I've just finished a dance weekend. It started with a 4 hour contra dance Friday night. Saturday, I did a 3 hour English country dance workshop in the afternoon, a 4 hour English country dance (ball) that evening, and an after party that I was invited to that involved two more hours of dance. Sunday afternoon was a three hour Irish ceili workshop. That was followed by a trip to a Celtic pub where musicians from around the area meet and play. You could say they just fiddle around. (grin) Well, I danced some more Irish dance there, and ate an awesome Irish meal.
Today, I think I'm going to relax and take it easy.

That's why it takes 3 of us!

11/28 - had 1.5 hours of dance practice.

The only restrictions any of us have in life are those we place on ourselves.

Today I did 40 minutes of heavy digging associated with my landscape project. Tonight I will do two hours of English country dancing. Can you think of a more enjoyable way to burn calories?

While it would be possible to post pictures periodically, the after picture is unlikely. This is because the project is about a 10 year project started three years ago, and because, even when it is done there will be changes occurring with the passage of time. I'll look for some current pictures (or take some) if you would like.
