Thanks for that information. I just threw something together Saturday night and it was great. It was back to work today and it was crazy. It is month-end and so that means we have a lot to do. I'll only have one more month-end to go through and then I retire. That will be so nice. I do love my job and the people that work for me, but it is time. I have a lot of things planed and that is going to be fun. Hope you have a great week.
Well I work every day and try and exercise at least 3 days a week. So far it is good, but sometimes I'm at work late. I only have until August 30th, because then I'm retiring. I have a music background and I'm going to work with disabled children to bring music to them. I also have other plans. My mom passed away 2 years ago and I have a whole house to go through and decide what to keep and what to give away. I want to move into a smaller place. I also have a wonderful nephew and his family. I have a great nephew who is 4 and loves me and want to spend more time with him. So I have plans and I'm want to enjoy life and do want I want when I want it. I don't always get on to post because of work, but once I retire I plan to do it more.
I'm at my home in NC. I'm on a mountain in Marble outside of Murphy. It is peaceful, beautiful, all year here. I get to go to a WELLNESS Center in Murphy with a pool. Today, I attended a Pool TABATA class. Quite a workout.
I had thought Tabata was a warm up, then 4 minutes of intense interval workout, then cooldown.
That was kind of what it was. Except there were 3 sessions of intense interval workout (20 seconds on as hard as you can, 10 seconds of complete rest, for 8 intervals or 4 minutes). And in between the 3 tabata sessions there was no rest. The coach kept us working at a moderate level. Then she had us alternate flutter kick and deep kick with no rest in between. I think the intensity came from the arm work being with the foam barbells.
For the first Tabata session, We ran in the deep water with our arms pumping the barbells. At home I ran in place where I could touch and pumped my arms without the barbells. I couldn't tell you what we did for the other 2.
At one point I asked what she called the work we were doing--strength training was the reply. So I guess I've been doing some strength training in the pool at home.
That class meets again Thursday at 8:30 a.m. I'll be there if I'm still kickin'
Hi everyone, I'm noticing that no one is logging the team goal: 10,000 steps. I walk a lot, but I don't think I get anywhere near 10,000 a day, and it's not one of my goals.
So I'm willing to add some other team fitness goals. I'd like them to FIT you. : D Please send a spark mail if you have a suggestion.
The ones I'm thinking of are:
1. Get in a 10 minute workout before or after lunch 5 times a week. 2. Get in 3-10 minute workouts daily 5 times a week. 3. Walk in place during every commercial. 4. Walk a mile every day, 7 miles a week. 5. Do a Tabata workout 3 times a week. Nope--sitting in the recliner is no longer on my list.
Which one would you sign up for, and actually do, AND log on the fitness tracker?
Would you like to get a group started who share what's going on in your lives? Perhaps you take a couple of minutes to cool down after your 10 minute lunchtime workout to let us know how your day is going, or give someone else encouragement.
This is the place!!
Since I'm retired, I don't have the work pressures. I spend my early morning and late evening with workout--walking, and pool. I love the pool and that workout keeps neuropathy away so I don't need pain medication anymore. After that, I put some time in managing my activities on Spark People, and then do any needed food preparation.
If I don't need to run errands in the heat of the day, I enjoy lots of different "retirement" activities like looking for ways to save money, practicing the harp, reading, painting, organic gardening, and working in my yard so that it doesn't become a jungle.
