Day 1 of week 3 for me! I'm struggling today with emotions and emotional eating, but I'm about to go hit up the elliptical for some cardio and see if it lifts my mood, and then hubby is dragging me to the gym later so I'll end up in spin class :-)

Done a variety of workout videos and have really enjoyed them. Wanted to do one every day but did a weekend trip without the computer. Back on track now.

Week 3/day 4 emoticon

For week 3, I'm choosing the Seated Arm and Shoulder Workout. It's been quite a while since I've toned and strengthened my arms and shoulders, so I'll be using 1 pound weights. That's all I have lower than my 5. emoticon

Hoping to talk to my sis-in-law on the phone when I walk this morning. Wed when I did, the walk was fun! I sent her a chat msg on FB asking if I could call her, but she hasn't responded yet. I'll just go ahead and give it a try!

I haven't picked a SparkPeople 10 minute video to do this week yet, but I know it won't be cardio as I have no space in my office/TV room. It used to be an office/workout room, but we recently added a a large love seat so that we could convert our living room to my DH's bedroom, complete with a double bed! I used to do Coach Nicole cardio videos 3 times in a row for 30 minutes, MTWThF (5 days a week) and I got in good workouts and "kind of'" enjoyed them. They're great, fun routines but I really don't enjoy working out. I stopped doing them after about a month or two. I think if I'd done less minutes, like 10 and less often, like MWF, I would have enjoyed them more and even looked forward to them. I'm still walking after 3 weeks (1 before I started this challenge and 2 of this challenge), but I'm only walking 3 days a week, MWF, not all or most days. So, I've hung in there 3 weeks without quitting. I enjoy my 10-15 minute walks and I look forward to them! I even think I'm starting to make exercise a habit. But honestly, I wouldn't miss it if I stopped. I would, however, miss feeling good about myself for doing it!!

To make my walks more fun this week, I'm gonna call my sis-in-law in Michigan when I walk! I hope she's up at 0800 her time! She was this morning and called me! I lost track of time during my walk and I walked 16 minutes with a 9 minute cool down. I planned on 10 minutes with a cool down. I didn't notice the "work" involved, either! I would like to continue to do this beyond this week! I'll ask her!

I think it's gonna be a good week 3!

I'm doing great on this one - 48 to 50 min daily, but need to kick it up to 50 to 58 min daily. Maybe I'll even start today. Maybe.

So I've been doing a variety to sp coach nicole exercises - Nice and good to mix them up 10-15 min for each, gives little breather to equal my 30 min - doing 2 diff coach exercises and then 10 min air climber stepper along with my 10 min dog walk 5 days per week. Excited 2 days in a row I've maintained weight that's been forever to get to, on the high end at 160.8 lbs, but I'm almost under 160 which haven't been in 150's in 6yrs

Week 3 was easier in the sense that now it is coming more natural to take 10 mins of my day to focus on exercise. It was a challenge to do the workout video, I just did not make the time but then when I finally committed to doing it I thought to myself, "that was easy" It's funny how the mind works. Thanks for the challenge!!!

I purchased a fitbit in May, I found that by having on my wrist 24/7 it reminds me to move, and I am moving a lot more then I have before. I am going to try and get all my measurements logged in this week. Baby steps for me I think.

The fun I received in this 3 week challenge was finding videos here and one I purchased that allowed me to do some indoor in A/C and still getting my exercise going and even increasing the amount. Tracked over 77,000 steps and increased calories burned.

Used parts of two video workouts and then at end of day decided to get in one more. Recorded over 11,000 steps on my tracker. Love to make the challenges work! Maybe the challenges make me work! emoticon

Well done, just a tip but I am not sure it will work with knees. I pulled a Hamstring and found that if I walked with my toe pointing a little outwards it took the pressure off. I am not saying it will work with a knee but anything that makes it more comfortable can only be good, but be careful.

Sorry, little late, but week 3 went pretty good, even with my knee acting up. I did some videos, I found exercises that would not aggravate my knee and exercised each day. I went out almost every day and walked as much as I could with my knee. I really enjoyed getting out of the house and seeing the wonderful colors. I also cycled, which according to one video I watched helps strength the knee. All-in-all, I was pleased with the results. emoticon

Week 3 is going to be fairly easy for me as I already do the majority of these things listed. I do zumba, walking daily to and from school with the kids and twice a week with friends. Planning an active weekend and mostly going to be on the move this week!

You are right not to use the treadmill, I have two friends that had their knees done last year and one was using the bike to good effect but it was a while before you could use a treadmill. They are both walking well now I am glad to say.

Since I hurt my knee, I do mostly cycling and stretches, mostly for my knee. Tried treadmill, oops not good. Took yesterday off, cycling today. emoticon

I have been walking a lot, making sure I get 5 miles in daily, I do strength exercises when I am not on my work schedule, so not much the last few days. logged in over 40 miles this week on my FitBit. Just got my exercise ball the day I went back to work, so looking forward to doing some different exercises to mix up the routine.

I have been using stretching and slower paced walking to get my activity in since I have been fighting a nasty cold for the last couple weeks. Happy to be getting back to normal and begin increasing my levels again.

Zumba is a great workout. I am a dancer and I am also a hiker and I lift weights. The only thing that ever bothered my knees was zumba. Take it really low impact!

I took it a little easy last week. I did something to my knee, and didn't want to make it worse. I realize I could have done Pilates or something in the meantime, but last week was just impossible! I'm doing much better this week, and tonight I will be trying Zumba for the first time (I'm keeping low-impact so I don't aggravate the knee).

I did yoga at lunch today, and I just feel so much better all over. It was outside, in the sunshine, birds singing...very much about being present. And a tough workout!

I still feel like an underachiever, but since I got my Spark Activity Tracker - I have seen a steady increase in steps taken. don't know that I will ever be able to do much more - but I like to see the little lights twinkle.

walked the trails today in the rain before work. Only had time for 4.5 miles. Yesterday we did 28 minutes to the lake in the morning and 35 minutes last night. This is my last day of trail hiking until Monday 5 May. My goal for next week is to swim every day and to go to the gym every day and walk everywhere we go while on vacation.

I've already been to the YMCA today and did 30 minutes of treadmill and 30 minutes of weight machines. That's made it a week of doing something every day. My goal next week is to make it to the Y at least 4 times, and do a workout video for the other 3 days.

The longest journey begins with one step.
If it's to be, it's up to me!

Have continued to hike. Yesterday I took all 3 dogs to the trails which was 2 hrs and 35 minutes in hiking. Today only the goldens went and we did 88 minutes on the trail in the rain before work. I replaced my fitbit on Sunday so lost only one day of steps but still have not caught up in my competition.

Checking in but haven't done my exercise for the day yet. I'm having a rest day tomorrow as it's my birthday. Today has been thrown out because of postal and package deliveries (birthday presents) and birthday cards turning up to be opened. I'm really going to enjoy my birthday this year, I feel it in my bones! emoticon I have two new exercise dvd's so guess what I'll be doing later for my exercise!

Editing to day I've done 15 minutes today.

I just read everyone level of activity and I feel like an underachiever - I signed up for 10 minutes because before this I had 0. I am now up to about 30 minutes each day and a lot of moving around the house. I read today that the American Heart Association suggests and hour 5 days a week. Sounds like a lot, today, but then in March I couldn't walk to the mailbox.

Have continued to hike with the dogs each morning. Did 2 hours of gravel shoveling and spreading yesterday and in the process lost my fitbit. Now I am feeling depressed and have lost my place in my steps competition because it has no steps to pull from.

I have added dancing to my workout. I forgot how much fun it is to dance. I am also enjoying the TaiChi class I started last week, and will continue this for at least 3 more weeks, possibly extending to the next 5 week session. I feel I am doing well from a fitness start but apparently not doing enough to help the weight loss,which has been minimal. I am doing more cardio, which i hope will help.

Hi there,
I completed week 3 and am moving on to the Spring Cleaning Challenge. I did a video on yoga and pilates and found for some reason or other, yoga gave me a headache but I enjoyed the pilates. My chiropractor told me not to do yoga, that the twisting etc, would put my back out of adjustment so I stopped doing it. But, he said pilates were fine because it works the core muscles which are weak when you have a bad back. At any rate, I did all three things that were involved in this challenge and I enjoyed the three weeks immensely. It wasn't a huge amount of time so I didn't feel overwhelmed. Thank you and have a good day.
Chez.

Week 3 well it is really....I THINK....WEEK 6. This is the first week I felt like I completed week 3. This week I set a goal to earn my silver activity tracker metal. (40,000) steps. That,s a little over 6000 a day. My tracker daily goal is 5000. There are many days I don't reach that. Now that it is warmer and I have been on Spring Break this week, I wasn't going to let anything stand in my way. As for how am I doing it. Walking mainly. I also use my step aerobic step almost everyday, As for videos, I have tried coach Nicole's and they are great but I get board. With videos I find that I enjoy Jessica Smith's videos the best. Also the Spark Activity Tracker is one of my top motivators and I recommend it to everyone.

As we walk though this garden, that some call life there are many paths and ways to go. There is always someone there to help you along the way some may force you down their path or help you find your own. No matter what path you take there is a key in the garden. You must find it to survive!

Hope you're back on track soon, SUEFROMRI!

I like this challenge - and I'm really liking exercising so much that I'm making time for it.
