I am down 2 pounds over the month. I was in maintenance but I love I have gone 5 weeks with doing 10 mins a day minimum and I have more energy in the morning and stay more relaxed.
I really like this the gym machines and walking I will do every other day during week!

I've been busy this past week. I haven't been able to post much....my cat is gravely ill and we've been running back and forth to the vets.
I still worked out but not as much as I wanted to.
Did some yard work for 3 days and walked. Stretches and a few videos.

What I did learn was that even doing 30 minutes of exercise a day consistently, moves me in the right direction...forward. It's so much more than I used to do, but I still want to do more. I've learned not to overwhelm myself because I will quit. The tortoise won the race. emoticon

Completed Week 4, today last day. Did 31 minutes of Cardio.



You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it, but God wins it every time. This battle is not ours it's the Lord's.

Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.

Negative thoughts are the weak link. A shift in your awareness and thinking positive will change your day.

Hello all,

MS- Congrats on your weight loss. You are an inspiration. I pray that you will have continued success. I too have fibro but I do not allow it to stop me from exercising.

Plan to do two a day workouts three times a week this week. I actually feel guilty if I don't exercise and I do it. I am loving doing morning exercises and I am doing the April rise and shine challenge. I am on my 6th day of eating a healthy breakfast and doing morning exercise.

Well I'm feeling pretty good about myself ....after starting my journey May 27th 2013 I have lost 82 pounds and I am two pounds away from being under 200 since early school days. I started in a size 24 and now wear 14 comfortably ( for a month I occasional would put them on to wear briefly but they were so tight it wasn't comfortable)...now they are loose.
I have Fibromyalgia so it is a struggle to exercise, but no pain no gain. I need to do it more but it's a work n process. This Spark site is great for counting calories and these little challenges help me. Have a great day all :)

Hello all,

The last week of the challenge. I had 400 minutes of cardio this week and 150 minutes of strength. I plan to do two a day workouts this week three times a week. I also have been doing HITT which is High Intensity Interval Training through Jessica Smith You tube channel.

I love variety! I do a different cardio video each day and also some walking. I also do some strength training with either resistance bands or weights. Can't believe the change in my attitude about exercise!

Well, looking ahead ... Next month, I'm going to Disneyland & I'm so excited. But the park is huge & I need to be able to walk around all day and still enjoy myself. So, being able to hike 3-5 miles every other day until the 20th of April will be a great way to practice & enjoy the outdoors. (not to mention that it'll make a difference in those vacation photos). I've been hiking almost everyday this month, but I need to step it up just a bit.

Week four was great!! I'm always happy to go home,(I'm visiting my daughter to help out), because I get mad, crazy exercise from walking, in the snow no less!! I really enjoy it and can't wait for good weather so I can do much more. I'm saving up for new sneakers, (any suggestions?), and the sparks pedometer.

Just finished week 4. I started this challenge with the intent to create a new healthy habit for myself, and … I did it! I really enjoyed exploring the workout ideas SP has to offer. I am looking to the future and have set a goal to continue to build up my workout time as well as incorporate daily yoga into my routine.

Feel better AJINBC & good luck in week 4!

Bit of a challenge with illness last week so did not get my exercise on a couple of days. I'll re-do this week as week 4 and just finished my exercise minutes for today.

It has taken me several weeks to get here, but I am finally in week 4. My long term goal is not only to beat my record streak of 9 days, but to exercise at least 30 minutes on at least 5 days each week with at least 10 minutes on the other days. I know I can do this!

Well I just completed my 4 weeks! emoticon
If I just say I will try to exercise even if I am not motivated...well you know how that goes! I joined so this would make me have to exercise at least 10 minutes while I was snowed in all month. But within a week I was wanting to exercise and for much longer. It should be gone in a few days and I want to get back to walking outside 1 or 2 miles most days. emoticon

Isn't anyone on their 4th week? I haven't seen anyone on this discussion thread for a week!

When the weather is better and I can get out I want to start walking a miles or two 4-5 times a week again.

My long term goal for the end of this week is needing to lose 2 lbs and keep off, some weeks I lost 1 or 2 but kept gaining back, but this was a bad week as I was craving carbs so think why I wasn't really losing. Now I officially have no bad food left in house so I won't buy bad food since all gone. I gotta keep up with eating my fruits and yogurt and nuts I have. Try to get my cravings away from all those carbs which is hard, doing a lot better than I used to at least. Slow progress but in long run will be good and have been eating a lot of eggs past few days as that is good to eat I heard to lose weight, If I can get to point where I'm losing each week then I'll know I'm doing something right.

It is week 4. I have worked out 10 min/day at least 4 times per week. I've stuck to it, and it was tough last week. I have not lost any weight - so I'm glad this week I'm tasked with making some long term goals.....
1. Continue to workout at least 10 min per day at least 5 times weekly.
2. On three of those days strength train - gotta keep the bones strong, and I need some muscles to burn calories.
3. Continue finding ways to sneak in extra steps so that I am consistently getting 10,000 steps per day.

My long term goal is to continue to find fun ways to exercise everyday. I will continue to increase duration and intensity as I get fitter.

This challenge was really hard when I was sick. I'm excited that I stuck through the challenge as tough as some days were. I plan on continuing working out between 10 to 20 minutes daily. I'm trying to increase that when I can. Some days I do 20 to 30 minutes. My crunchs moved up in one month with my weight loss and exercise.

Almost there. Day 25 of my challenge. I'm so proud of myself for sticking to exercise straight for over 3 weeks. I feel wonderful and have lost 6 lbs. So far.

Always a lesson, never a mistake.
One day at a time.

This has been a great challenge! In the last month I've been able to:
- start exercising 5-7 days/week
- bump up exercise time during those sessions from 10-30 minutes/each
- if I don't have time to do 30 minutes all in one go, then I go back to finish later
- give "chores" to my boyfriend so I can squeeze in exercise on really busy days
- start strength training

I really look forward to exercise and don't consider it a chore anymore. Going forward, I will:
- bump up my step goal from 2,000 to 6,000 steps/day (I find I consistently walk more steps than I thought!)
- bump up my miles/week for walking/running/cycling from 10 to 30!

I meant to post this last week. In the past 4 weeks, I've been reminded of how much benefit 10 minutes of exercise per day can have. It doesn't take hours in the gym to have increased energy and a sense of accomplishment. :)
