Starting week 2 today! My goal is to add a new exercise to my daily workout routine this week...I walk and or run most mornings. I bought a new workout video...Jessica Smiths Walk On 15 minute Fast Fat Blast! Should be FUN!

I've finished week 2, and can feel the positive difference of the increased activity. The activity creates more energy. So on to week 3!

Today I start week 2. The idea of only 10 minutes of activity is an excellent one. I feel proud that I accomplished at least 10 minutes every day for a week, and usually did 30 or more minutes. Most of my activity was on the Wii. Yesterday was 3 hours doing yard work and achieving 10,000 steps on the Fitbit. Now I feel ready to do more and today will start training for a 5K (walking). Life is good!

I have started doing squats while blow drying my hair, stretches in the bathroom during work bathroom breaks, and taking the stairs every chance I get. Week 2 has been fun!

For my week two challenges I have chosen:
1. Take the stairs. Skip the elevators, escalators and other "people movers" and move your own body. You'll burn calories and avoid lines in airports, malls, and offices. and
2. Cultivate a garden. Planting, watering, pruning and caring for a garden relieves stress, beautifies your home, and increases your daily activity..

Ways I add random acts of fitness into my life are: I always park very far away from the door of wherever I am at, I hand wash my dishes most of the time. Warmer weather is coming, so gardening will be happening, as well as hang drying clothes.

Some days I am only able to do stretches, other days seated exercises, and limited walking on other days. Yesterday was about an hour of physical therapy. It's pretty early today and I am just getting started but my knees are feeling a bit better today, so I will be walking around the house and see how it goes. I will be getting a treadmill soon so that should make getting my steps in easier.

This team motivated me to stay committed to 10 minutes at least 5 days last week (I did 6 days)! And, at the beginning of my 2nd week, I was able to go on a 5 hour hike, so kind of above and beyond for day 1. Some days last week I wasn't able to do much more than a quick 10 minutes with my resistance bands before bed though, and I'm sure I wouldn't have accomplished that without being in this group!

The journey is the destination. Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

I just started week 2, and actually DID walk for at least 10 minutes for 5 days last week! I find that this team actually keeps me accountable, just by being a part of it!

My goal was to do the Boot Camp daily...unfortunately was hit with a doozer of a virus that lasted all week and I just didn't have the umph needed. However, I found I could still do the Gazelle, and I made myself do that daily, which helped me reach my 10,000 steps. (I've been known to do laps around the house before bed, just to get those last few steps in!!)

Chronic pain makes movement difficult, but not impossible. On days when it hurts too bad to stand, sometimes I do some chair dancing or other seated exercises.There are even a few I can do in bed if I'm having a really bad day. The most important thing is to get in some sort of exercise/movement every day even if it isn't as much as I would like.

I look for more ways to move. Sometimes I just break into a little dance or hop skip around a little. Works wonders for the spirit. I also make sure I get my 45 minutes of strength training in 3 times a week. I have been good about this for over 2 months now. I teach a senior exercise class on Mon and Weds so this keeps me moving - even when I don't feel like it.

Week 2 was the hardest so far. Did not feel well, physically or emotionally, so it was all I could do to make 10 minutes of walking around most days (a couple of days I did much better). Sticking with it though because I know this will pass and I will be all the better from pushing through.

I installed a step tracker on my phone but would like to get a fit bit at a later date. I have started walking 30 minutes a day plus riding my stationary bike for 20 minutes. I am also working on strength training every other day.

Starting Week 2 today - looking forward to more walking and adding in new things. I actually already do quite a lot of the ideas on the list - so I am going to try adding: Working out while at my work desk & Tune-in to your body.

Well, after a minor setback from doing way too many skater squats (ouch), I have gotten back on track. I have incorporated walking the dog, and dancing all the time, in addition to my daily walking routine. Loving the motivation, help and support.

I'm happy to say I'm sticking with the plan. Doing really well with the nutrition and the calories. Have been getting in exercise 6 days a week. Pushing myself to do a little more on the treadmill, a little faster, a little longer. Glad to be part of the team.

I've been building myself up to exercise at least 30 mins a day, which I am doing pretty well on and is losing weight also. But recently I've been thinking about ways I could get in more since I am at home most of the time.

I do my house work and make it work for me instead of me working for it. I usually watch TV before bed and I like to color. I have a couple of great coloring books. It helps me to distress the day away by focusing on something else.

However, I am now looking for a nice "stretching and relaxing" exercise that can help me sleep through the night, maybe?

I want to increase to an hour a day of exercising that counts and matters.

I am doing exercises in the morning (no one is more surprised than I am). Pushups - my shoulder got weak. Plank - again, for shoulders and abs. I'm looking for a good lower-back strengthening exercise; I tried Superman and while I'm apparently more flexible now, it doesn't seem to be helping the lower back.

I am also walking up one floor and taking the elevator up to my 5th floor office. People who see me on the ground floor look at me funny, but it's one more flight.

Will be working this week to visit people instead of picking up the phone - and since they're rebuilding our restrooms, my longstanding thought that I should use the restroom on another floor is something I now have no choice about.

For the last 2 days, I have been waking up before the kids to work out on the treadmill and do my Spark video. This has helped me to limit the excuses in the evening - if I do more exercises in the evening, then those would be a bonus!

While I know myself as a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and remember everyone else and everything else are also God's creation.

I have been walking my dogs twice a week, I know that is not daily but it is an improvement over what I was doing. I have a large yard and they are small dogs, so they get plenty of exercise.

At work on my 15 minute breaks I take 10 minute walks around the building.

I have chronic pain, so its hard some days just to move. But I find that by just doing a little bit here and a little bit there, it can add up and help me be stronger.

I've been having a very difficult time with this challenge due to my PTSD, emoticon and the goal I set for myself of doing 90 minutes a day, 3X more than I was really used to doing. But I did it! emoticon And I'm proud of myself for staying with it. Because I've been having night terrors, which are the really bad nightmares that people with PTSD get, and my sleep schedule has been all messed up, it's been all over the map! emoticon But I did my exercise, and I am so glad. It's really a bright spot right now in my life, knowing that I'm building up my fitness level. emoticon Anyway, just to let everyone know, there's a SparkTeam called PTSD that's been giving me support, and you should definitely check it out if you have that or know someone who has it and would like help to support them with their issues. This is a good team! emoticon

Like I said, I've been having difficulty with my schedule. I always exercise after I've gotten enough sleep, to help prevent any injuries. And I make sure that a meal is in me. emoticon And then I'm off! emoticon I can do it. I set a timer for 1 hour. emoticon Then when that goes off, I set it again for a half hour. It's super easy that way, to just do it all in one chunk of time. That's been helping me. It relieves a lot of tension to know I'm done. emoticon

You wanted 2 creative ways I'm working in activity:

1) I'm exercising in my pajamas! Yay! I can do that because I'm exercising in the house, so it works. emoticon

2) I'm also using my slippers! Which I don't really like to do, but my walking shoes are dirty and I haven't had a chance to hand wash them like I would like. But I figure it's better than not getting in my workouts and it's like one of those shoes with minimal soles that they have out now. emoticon

Week 2
Had a great time today doing my weekly shopping. Instead of only walking down aisles that contained items I needed, I walked the whole store 3 times. Over 4000 steps.

Also made it to work early during the week to walk the halls before my shift started.

For my week 2 exercise, I didn't let snow bother me. I traded my walking shoes in for water-proof hiking shoes and went for a walk on a beautiful snowy trail. I was the only one and it was so peaceful.

Sadly I crashed the car yesterday, if you can even call it that. Anyway I had issues getting stuff done yesterday, I did stay active, but not on what my intended activities were. The upside to not having a car is that now all of my errands must be done by bike! I used to bike everywhere and do everything by bike. When I moved to Cali I slumped, due to lack of people to go do stuff with and depression from being evacuated out of Africa and returning to a less than ideal living situation. I have since moved into a new place but my partner leaves his car with me during the week to get stuff done. I have ventured out on bike several times but when I just want to go get something done fast I cop out! Now I am being forced to use my bike and you know what? It is amazing!

Week 2-
I am prone to injury, so I dealt with yet another injury!
I added the 10-minutes from days that I missed to the following time I worked out - as per my plan.

I also walked a lot.

I have found daily consistency with the thought of always moving in everything I do. I now don't like sitting down for too long. I find myself standing up or moving while I am doing something. For instance I rocked, squatted, and toe touched the whole time while washing dishes by hand.... 45m! Most of my intended "just do something for 10m" end up to be 20-30m.

I have found that if I use a video I am familiar with, I can turn the volume down and then do some aerobic activity while watching TV. This only works if you are pretty much home alone, but since I am currently unemployed it works well for me. I even danced my way through the last Football game. I got a ton of minutes and steps in that way.

Week 2 has been difficult for me. I've managed to hit the 10 minute minimum, but some days just barely. I'm hoping to do some strength training tonight and Zumba tomorrow, but then I'll be traveling for 2 days with a packed schedule for business.

Any advice on exercise in an airport?

I stuck to it. Saturday after watching a movie, it was 11:30 at night. I really wanted to go to bed, but I went downstairs and hopped on the treadmill for a while to get in my activity for the day.

My week 2 has been a bust so far. Only able to squeeze in one day out of 3 thus far-long hours at work plus hubby was out of town so that throws off my sleep. I know this is important to keep me on track for maintaining my loss - so I hope to recover starting today emoticon

Walked on the treadmill at least 20 minutes each day week 2. I didn't do the yoga I had planned on as I had a terrible cold and decided it was better to wait. I did walk a little faster than the 3 mph I did the first week.

Wise choices each day will get me where I want to be.

Finished Week 2 and feeling pretty good. The my time on the exercise bike has increased and I'm getting some walking/treadmill time in too. I also started going back to the gym 2x a week. Plan to add some yoga and try and get the gym visits up to 3x a week.
