I hope you're feeling better, Tammy. Get some sleep!

I didn't exercise much (at all) last week. It was the BF's last week before leaving for London for 6 weeks, so all free time was spent with him. I need to get back into my running this week, though.

I found an app on my phone called 7min workout that's a pretty awesome interval program. And because it's only 7 minutes, it fits perfectly into my day.

Last Sunday I did Day 1 of a C25k program. I'm wanting to get back into running, but being mindful of the calf injury that put me out of commission a year ago. Today is the first day since Sunday that I'm not feeling pain in my calf, so I may get out there this afternoon for Day 2. Just taking it really slowly for now.

garden is in. i am still planting some marigolds to organically repeal critters, my cardio workouts are not very intense, but i am getting better at my strenght. i think i need to find more circuit videos. mostly to helpe keep me focused. a list of 6-7 moves is simple but i wonder if i am taking too long of breaks or not working as effectivly by not supersetting or adding an interval. i want to p my intensity but my stomache gets made at me if i do.

issues with the tiller mean i had to do about 1/3 of my garden with more elbow grease. i hope stuff still does ok. but i am am annoyed that the 1st tiller stopped and started leaking gas. the borrowed one was not strong enough to break new ground. the new purchase one had a broken safety cluctch so we almost had injuries. so today- after 4 days of fighting- i had a tiller for the rest. so this week was a lot of exercises in patience. i did strenght training 1 day. but otherwise i was at work, and i came home and was outside till it was almost dark. then quick eat supper and get ready for bed and next work day.

Found out this year I have sleep apnea. I am at a mild case of it to where weight loss can help. The normal amount of times you stop breathing in an hour is 5 times and I am at a 8 times an hour. I got tested with the CPAP machine and I didn't feel any better with it than without it. I was groggy, had a headache, and couldn't remember a whole lot the day because of the CPAP machine. I told the nurse this and she said if I changed my mind to call and they will order a machine. I doubt it. I have a ton of energy and feel a lot better without it.

i took a week off from strength training. i took another week to decide what the nect challenge/routine would be. then last week was nuts. so 3 weeks with no strength training
my nexy challenge will be a pushup challenge - real ones, not on the kness. i am going to redo the real appeal strenght videos 2x per week. i am going to use heavier weights for all the moves and i am using a tougher resistance band.

Hello, all! I've been MIA because BF and I took a 2-week trip to Ecuador for the holidays! It is so gorgeous there. And what I appreciated the most was that people looked, by American standards, to live in poverty, but they simply lived to their needs and felt no desire to live in excess. It was a stark contrast to this capitalist society we live in here in the U.S. and a breath of fresh air. Here's a pic of BF and me just outside Otavalo. So much greenery!


We got back early early Wednesday morning. In other, less exciting, news, my Gramps passed away this morning. Technically cause of death was starvation, brought on by Alzheimers. His directive stated that if he did not eat or drink on his own then he was not to be artificially fed. He only lasted a couple weeks once that started. The family will be flying to Denver for the memorial and then driving to Liberal, Kansas for the burial. My family and I are strapped for cash, so I started a GoFundMe to help with airfare, car rental, and hotel. Feel free to message me if you'd like the link to contribute or to share with others.

Sorry to be such a downer. I do hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to catching up better in the next couple weeks. Hugs to everyone!

i did level 3 cardio of 5 on my exercise . tomorrow is strenght level 3. 1 was easy. the strenght was way to easy. i am ok with using level 1 cardio if i am ever sick, not feeling well or am sore. it is good for getting the blood flowing but is not tireing. level 2 was enjoyable for strength and cardio. it suggested using 5- 8 lb weights but i was using 10-15 for some of the moves so i felt it was time to go to level 3

We have been in the house for 4 weeks now. we finally have it set up so we have a routine. weekends are still crazy. my workout room in my basement is set up so i use that most nights,
we have been busy with organizing. our last house had a lot more storage space so we have to keep stuff sorted better here. that and we have to keep the house clean because now that we live closer to family we get wuprise visitors.

The movers were here. we will be moving into the new house on frday. all my workout stuff is on the moving truck. i am not sure how long it will take to get it set up in the new house. but i will need to get a new exercies routine in the house. my old workplace had treadmills we could use while doing our jobs. i am starting a new job with a new company so no longer 2 miles walks while working.
oh well it may take time, but maybe i can pick up my intensity,

Going on lots of dog walks recently while the weather is still nice. Cold but nice. I think my cross trainer will play a big role in my workouts this winter emoticon Hoping to keep my pace going even in the colder months. Hope you're all having a good week.

After 3 weeks of being down, the treadmill I use at work is functioning again - woo hoo! i was able to walk a few times on the other machines when people were gone, but now i get my normal scheduled time back. i know missing my walks was the reason for a 2 lb gain over the past few weeks. i have been busy with house showings and have been really tired so my exercises have been short and less intense the what i have done in the past. i am currently doing a strength training challenge so may cardio nights tend to be lighter. my activity level is pretty good, i just need to up the intensity. i will look for some HIIT routines so i can up the intensity so i still have time for other things.

The treadmill at work is still broken. I get to walk some days when the otehr scheduled people are not there. but this is bugging me, it is taking aout about 1000-1500 c alories burned a week. i have no idea when it will ge fixed so untill it does i will have to be more intense and focused during my other workouts. i am better about picking harder strenght routines, found 1 last night taht used heavier weiights so i plan to stick with that one to stay focused.

I want to start adding more strength training to my normal exercise. my routines have been unfocused and low in intensity. i think i need to find a specific plan instead of just winging it.

So I just had a chat with my oldest son and he left me broken hearted...All my kids are special needs and different kinds of problem one being learning disabilities so my oldest comes to me and says mom I probably won't go to college because I know I'm not smart OMG I almost fell out my chair I started crying and continue to cry as I type this....He says mom I know I was born with drugs in my system and it messed up my brain and I can't learn like other kids I just cried and with tear rolling down my face I explained to him how that works that you're not dumb you're not stupid and you're not at fault for how you learn you simply learn differently from other kids maybe not at the pace but you learn....I'm so proud of my son this is the one who wan't to be a culinary chef and he's amazing with his art work....He thinks because he can't find a job he must be stupid I'm in tears telling him no way is that right....and explained it's hard for adults without problems to get a job it's not you and that your time will come....Then he told me that he's being pressured to make money the illegal way and I'm so glad that he came to me with it....I'm a little overwhelmed by all this any suggestion on what else I can share with him to make his self esteem rise

Hello all how is everyone doing today.....I officially got my foster care license in the mail today so I'm super happy I love children once my friend said I need to get a life and I told her this is my life this is what I'm called to do...children need so much love and support and I want to be there to help I wish I could save them all but I can't....but it would be nice if I could so those that come my way I try to affect their lives in a positive way the best I can....that's what is important to me that's my mission in life.....My mom always told us as kids to live our lives in service to others and I feel like I'm doing that

Hey everyone!

Hasn't been much activity here in quite some time.

I'm still doing pretty good. Have managed to keep off all that I lost, still have about 30 or so to go, but have kept under 170.

Doing a new workout plan that I received from hubby for Christmas baladea and so far I really like it. The workouts are a bit longer than what I've been used to but I think that is one of the good things about it. It was definitely time to up the workouts in order to keep losing.

Hope everyone's year has started out well!

Alright. I've been away from this team for a LONG time because I really couldn't do much training last year after an injury. BUT I'm back in the game! I have a challenge going on in another team and I'm going to find the time to train 4-5 days a week. And I'll post my workouts here. Hold me accountable!

Ready......GO!

Not feeling very motivated to move today. Seems like theres too much that needs to be done. Feeling a little overwhelmed. Gonna use my timer to fix that. I decided to move my bedroom to the small bedroom, I mean really small, small small. But I like it, feels more cozy. I moved my office from small room to big room and set up other half as my home gym area. Now I just have to organize it. ugh

Jessica Smith is such a fun goofball. she is not afraid to be imperfect or silly in an exercise video. i find them on you tube and i thing she did some 10 minute solution videos as well. Regardless it is important to jsut find a video and start doing it.

Imreite - not sure what site you have been using but I frequent JessicaSmithTV.com and she has a slew of free videos on her site from beginner to advanced and of course youtube has so many also. It can be difficult to find just the right ones that you don't mind doing. Also half.com has pre-owned videos that you can buy at a substantial discount a lot of times.

Good luck!

i found out some of my favoirite exercise videos were removed from the website that let me play them for free. i guess i will have to find some new ones or put a crowbar in my wallet and buy them. i think i may check back with my local library instead and keep looking online at spark, exercisetv, BeFit and fitnessblender. that and also keep doing some of the videos i already have in my collection.

Sinuses are killing me today. Blowing my nose a lot and sneezing. Took something for them over an hour ago. I'm hoping that I get them cleared before Wednesday. Dad has a colonoscopy on that day and I don't think that I can concentrate on what's going on dad. I may stay home while dad goes for his colonoscopy (his youngest brother takes him). I'm hoping to get some more sinus medicine before then so I can start feeling better. I also had some organic herbal tea (tropical hibiscus) with plenty of lemon items in it so I can get this cleared up. I'm starting to feel tired even though I've taken a Vitamin B12 this morning.

Good Morning All,

Hope everyone is having a good month. Mine is so-so, I'm maintaining, getting most of my workouts in (I was a little under the weather for a bit so had to miss some) and my eating seems to be fairly under control.

Working on the house this weekend to get it 'holiday-ready', then back on the road again next weekend for bowling tournament my son is in.

Hope everyone is staying on track this month, have a great day!

Night - sounds like you have had a busy month! We have more festivities coming up, so you might disappear on us more frequently emoticon Have you posted any pictures of the party? I would like to see them.

Doing better on my workouts this week....weekend is coming and this weekend I really need to try hard to not let it mess my progress!

Sorry I disappeared for awhile...went straight from executing my 13 yr old daughter's birthday party to planning and executing my 5 yr old daughter's birthday party on the 26th. Busy month and I have vanished from everything including my hobbies *laughs.* It was worth it though; she is still gushing over it. :)


*HUGS to Leslie!* Highest of fives! Siding with the Tatter-Master. Keeping hanging on. The hurdles only come when you're getting close to try and derail ya. That's good; means you're fighting for a good cause. ;)

Great job Leslie! I too had a 'tough point' that I couldn't get over, but once I got over that terrible number, it was easier. I hope that it is the same way for you. It gave me hope and I was so happy to get over that number, that it gave me the push I needed to continue loosing weight.
Hang in there! I know that you can do it.

Janet - Sorry to hear about your Mum. I hope things change for her.

Imrette - I hope you get to feeling better soon, this thing has been really hanging on. I would definitely try some other form of workouts until you can get past the congestion. It is so frustrating having a coughing fit every time you get going.

Mimi - Great to have you here. I hope your cramps are better this morning.

My workouts are going well, however, that challenge that I decided to do is very advanced. I do still use it as a guide and try to pick things that are equal on a little lower level. See if it is cardio/strength/both and then choose whatever videos I think will be close. I finally got my weight under 170!!! But it was only by an ounce or two so hopefully it won't go back up next Friday. But I was still really excited.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend!

Hi New team

Hope all is having a great Thursday

Just a quick personal posturing to get to know each of you. More will come later I promise.

Leslie You will do great good luck with your challenge

Tate hi hope your Mum will be interested. It's a troubled when we want more for some. You just got to let them do and pray and support them in their discussion.

Today for me has been a busy one. Ran some errands with my parents and fixing to do some game playing with HUBBY and parents. To wind down this Thursday evening

Hope all has a great one

Leslie - Good Luck! You seem to do good on challenges like this one. Better modifying them to meet your needs than to hurt yourself or get discouraged. For me they are more of a guide to follow than having to do them exactly.
Mum will be in town shortly so I might check it out and see if she is interested. She has bad health, and not interested in changing that fact so it worries me. I want her kicking around for many years, but her health keeps getting worse.
