I got a 30 minute walk outside today then I did 35 minutes of step aerobics. I feel good tonight.


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

This is one challenge I want to do. I like being active but sometimes I get lazy.
So far this month I have missed one day of being active and I don't want to have another day when I am not physically active for at least 15 minutes.

Yesterday I did the WII fit program (step aerobics) for 30 minutes and yoga for 30 minutes.
Monday I played darts for 60 minutes. .

Today I did one strength training video with Coach Nicole and I will be doing 2 more as soon as I'm finished posting.
The first strength training video was for abs/core muscles. I will do one for upper body and then one for lower body. Each video is 10 minutes or less.
They are free here on SP and I really like them.


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

Wow, you all are doing a wonderful job! I don't think I'm going to throw in any more fitness "challenges," you make me feel quite inadequate (maybe this is why I'm not making the progress I'd like to) !

I walked for 25 minutes on my treadmill today.

Okay, FattyBJ, I want you to change your username to something more positive. Looking at that name will only get you down.
Secondly, you have not disappointed any of us. Doing ANYTHING is great, and feel good that you didn't sit on the couch and eat all day! Working on the balance ball is really, really good for you (core).
And third, don't compare yourself. Even though I am 62 and 30 pounds overweight, if I do not do some form of strenuous exercise 6 days a week, I don't feel right. That isn't true for everyone, or necessarily even good for everyone!

They planted some shrubs down by the creek that were over grown with a canary grass weed. I will head down and rake some of the canary grass mat off of the shrubs. I plan to work at least 35 minutes on this project so will check back and put it on my tracker this afternoon. emoticon

Hmm. My walk to work is usually 10 minutes so I will see what I can come up with otherwise that doesn't aggrivate my asthma. I know I will walk home unless it is storming.

Seek, and you shall find;
