Got a mile in on my treadmill before work. I also have been trying to get up from my desk every couple of hours and taking a short walk, or stretching.

I am so glad my laundry room is on the main floor.
I am doing very little today. Yesterday, I was on my feet for several hours. I wore a pair of slip on shoes with out support so my feet were really hurting. Darn Arthur!

I am learning not to plan much the day after I am out & about a great deal.

Today I did:

40 Min Gardening
20 Min Housecleaning
60 Min Heavy Yardwork

Finally had to quit the yardwork - between blisters and just getting worn out. Even Daisy (my dog) gave up 'early' and wanted to go in. Animals are smarter! ha!

Today I did 20 min gardening and about 1 hour of reorganizing our cabinets in the motor home so I could try to get the groceries to fit 'in' but in a more 'accessible' way - this meant stepping up and down on the sofa and table benches as I am really short and can't reach into the cabinets all the way like I needed to. So lots of up and down and using my 'core' muscles to balance while unloading/reloading pantry stuff.

Marybeth - that's a good idea - my arms have a good bit of strength from all the yardwork/gardening I do but very little 'toning'. I used to have a pulley-type thing that attached over the door ... doing arm movements above my head and reaching up would be good to counter-balance all the lowering/ground work type my arms currently do.

Yesterday I did 2 hours of gardening and yardwork ... it was split up into several time segments ... breaking in between/drinking LOTS of water! Hope to do more today ... have tons to do! I don't know if our property will EVER resemble what was envisioned in my head when we bought it/first moved here - ha! It's taking much longer than I expected what with 'weather' delays ... and then my body not cooperating as well. I'm hoping to make great strides in it this Fall and Winter ... and do more 'maintenance' next summer lieu of 'installation' - ha!

DJ: You are right. It was my food choices that was hindering my weight loss. I've been at and around 145 for the last three years. Even with 'tons' of exercise I wasn't making progress. I had to reassess my calorie consumption. I monitored what I ate for about three weeks and found I was only averaging 700-900 calories a day. So, I looked back at my SP calculations to find out how many calories I should be eating. I increased my calorie consumption based on my old measurements. Then after doing some reading of the articles here on SP I realized that I'd lost weight since I originally joined seven years ago. So, I cleared everything and started from scratch. I'm also almost 1.5 inches taller than I originally entered. Now, that I am on the right track with my calorie numbers, I'm losing weight. I'm am under 140 for the first time since the middle of last year.

Thank you so much for the advice. I've a new house this morning. Same client, but they've moved so I don't know how long this house is going to take. Have a great day.

You do so much physically with your job but you mentioned you needed to do more exercise over and above that ... is that for purposes of weight loss? You've done well losing weight and the 'last ten pounds' is always the hardest to lose and sometimes can take a long time. If your body is 'not cooperating' and you are in too much pain it might be rest is needed more than additional exercise. If we 'stress' our bodies too much our weight loss can slow down as well as other complications develop. I've read from multiple sources and understand that our food intake is just as important - if not MORE - than exercise when it comes to losing weight. Maybe that is something you could look into for that last ten pounds. Make sure your food choices/intake is not playing havoc with your weight loss. Other than that my only other suggestion is to do more 'gentle' chair exercises on your most difficult days. Hope some of this helps ... maybe others here can offer more ideas/suggestions. Take care, treat your body well! ((hugs)) dj

Outside of cleaning two houses and the bank today I'm not sure what I'm going to be able to do. Arthritis is pretty bad today. I'm not going to be able to clean my client's upstairs although I will be able to do her downstairs. I really can't do any toning today as I did yesterday and my body needs to recuperate. I will take suggestions for sure.

my activity for the weekend was not the greatest. only 11 minutes of barn work that my tracker tracked, but i did vacuuming on Sat. and many other things the tracker did not track, so i don't generally claim that activity. Sunday was a lazy day for me.

I am an intellingent person. I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me. Everytime I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my enjured ego or dull my senses, I will remember...even though I overeat in private, my excess poundage is there for all the world to see.
I will take off pounds sensibly!

Oh, PandaBear! I do wish. I've been cleaning houses more than three years now. My body has grown accustomed to that "workout" so I do need to do more. It's a cool, windy day today so no walk. I'll find a SP video to do.

Have a great one. :)

Yesterday my get-up-and-go left! I hit "Well done" at 9:00 so only trash got taken out at the bank. I got to sleep in a bit this morning - which means I slept until 7:00. I've only one house to clean today. No bank. But my poor house has suffered horrible neglect, so I must clean it. :) After the client and my own house, I think me and my couch are going to be best friends. I need to catch up on my Bible reading. And I've several saved "Messages" on my DVR that I need to watch.

On the up side, I'm down 2.4 pounds from last week. I haven't been below 140 since the middle of last year. I AM now officially on those "last ten pounds". Haha! *happy dance*

I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Now. . .to contemplate my menu.

DL...you did your exercising with the cleaning of the houses and cleaning the bank.

i get a big workout when i vacuum as the vacuum is a heavy one that is self-propelled and hard to maneuver on very thick rug.

i have missed my walk the last few days due to other things i needed to do.

Wednesday was a day full of running.
Two big houses to clean.
Appointment for my daughter.
A party to attend.
And cleaning the bank.
Still super tired. Much the same today. Two big houses to clean and the bank. I skipped exercising yesterday but will try to do some today.

Wednesday

barn work for 13 minutes

watering plants for 45 minutes. i carried a gallon jug through the house and on the porch and front yard to water. didn't count how many times i filled the water jug.

Tuesday

barn work took 19 minutes

emptied a vanity and carried it downstairs to the front porch for a friend to have. also dismantled a twin bed and helped carry springs, mattress and frame downstairs to porch.this took over an hour to do and lots of sweat. was glad to be able to give everything to someone who could use them.

You go girls! My physical activities seem to be very limited lately. Too much running around or staying in bed too long in the mornings.

15 minute 'Bad knees' exercises. Today, by God's grace, it's going to be a 15 minute ab workout for bad backs.
One BIG house to clean. 3+ hours to clean that. One small house - 2 hours max, and the bank to clean. Praying I can 'deep clean' one more section tonight.
And of course, the hundred little things I must do around here.

Have a beautiful, blessed day.

I decided yesterday was going to be a break day. Probably not a good idea. I did not completely monitor my eating, either. Well, back on track today. Planning on doing another workout video and after that, we will see.
Have a great day!

I was working in a group home today and did lots of housecleaning - up and down the stairs a lot - they live in a townhouse with three levels of stairs. My feet are aching tonight!

Not very much 'doing' here today ...

10 min gardening/watering (for me this always means carrying the 2 gallon watering cans but I'll quit putting 'that' in - ha!)

20 min housecleaning

...the rest of the day I MELTED and SWEATED ... sorry, but this humidity and heat - and no fans or a/c - is not conducive to physical activity! No wonder there's so many pictures of people in hammocks under palm trees! ha!

Marybeth - your Pound Down class/workout sounds like so much FUN!

Okay - I managed to work off a lot of that 'negative energy' today ...

50 min heavy housecleaning
8 min vacuuming
26 min gardening
15 min heavy yard work

I 'may' do a yoga workout in a bit - before it gets dark out - it's Stress Relief Yoga (sounds appropriate for me at this time - ha!)

Update/edit: I DID get the Stress Relief Yoga workout done! I've had this dvd FOREVER but I guess I've NEVER done this section of it ... not that I wasn't stressed back then - ha! There were several movements/poses I could not do due to knee situation but maybe someday with improvement and practice!
