And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Since my last post that went thru Aug 4, here are my results with calories listed according to my Polar HRM:

8/6=Bowflex Lower body circuit-75 min's burned 273 calories
8/7=Bowflex Upper body circuit-75 min's burned 236 calories
8/8=Elliptical-40 min's burned 241 calories

I am getting ready to go to Orlando for a week and I specifically bought a pedometer to take that counts calories burned. I am hoping that this will help remind me that Chipwiches and all the other temptations that abound are more calories going in than I have burned that day!! Hopefully, the pedometer will keep me more on my nutrition plan!

Hi Team! This sounds like a great challenge to keep us all motivated. Personally, I'll be keeping up the cardio, but I'd like to kick up my strength training and be consistent with 3 times per week.

Yesterday, 8/1, I kept it up with 33 minutes on the elliptical, 35 minute walk and 8 minutes of stretching.

Today, 8/2, I'm keeping it up with 30 minutes of brisk walking with more after work, including a strength session.

I lost the weight and I never want to find it again!



Working hard at maintenance.

I'm kicking it up!
10 miles per week walking.

(To start with and get back on track.)

"A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner:
Inside of me there are two dogs.
One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good.
The mean dog fights the good dog all the time.
When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied:
The one I feed the most."

Welcome to August 2007! Today begins a new month and a new challenge. I知 so very proud of everyone who participated in our Mid-July Exercise Challenge. Our final week put us at 24.58 hours worth of workouts. We posted 66 hours that痴 2.5 days worth of cardio workouts since the middle of July. That痴 incredible and everyone who participated should be very proud of their accomplishments. A special YaHoo! for those who got on board with their pedometers (that痴 Texan for Good Job!)

Now don稚 feel bad if you didn稚 participate, or only got to participate for just a couple of days. The point is that it was in your mind and you simply can稚 just begin a new 塗abit just because of a challenge. Habits are things we learn and when we begin a new action, it isn稚 a habit at first. AND we don稚 do it correctly either. The first time you brushed your teeth did you do it correctly? Of course not. You had to be shown, and you had to be told by your parent to do it over and over and over for years on end. I知 guessing brushing your teeth didn稚 become a habit until your teens (if then!) If you池e my son, I still wonder and he痴 22! LOL Anyway, habits are things that we develop over time. Sometimes it takes a very long time.

So this is where August痴 Kick It Up or Keep It Up Challenge comes in. If you need to Kick Up your exercise, now is the time to do it. Try to do 15-20 minutes of any activity that is new to your routine and keep track of it. Whether you post it on our Challenge string daily or you write it on a scrap of paper that ends up in the bottom of your purse and you only post it once a week, that痴 fine. Just get it into your mind that you need to do somethingAnything!...that counts as activity and keep track of it. Keep track if you don稚 do it every day too. Even once a week is better than you did last week.

For those of you exercise monsters who wouldn稚 think of going a day without cardio, Keep It Up!. You池e stronger and healthier than you were a year ago and your body thanks you. Look for ways to vary your routine to add in some strength training every other day or go buy a ball and work on your balance and core exercises. There are lots to choose from on SP.

Post your activity in this thread like the example below and I値l provide a weekly total each Monday.

I知 Kicking It Up!
8/1 - 15 minutes treadmill

Or

I知 Keeping it Up!
8/1 45 minutes elliptical

Think about it. Get it in your mind, and make a point to take care of you this month. Let the idea of being better to yourself take root in the corner of your mind. Don稚 forget to post your progress. Good luck!
