looks loike we are going to fall a bit short of the 30k fitness minutes as a team this month. Maybe we can try for 25,000 next month. Great job everyone who participated this month.

emoticon emoticon Tere! If you can do the miles you are doing, you'll be able to do those 20--once the legs get going and the endorphins start pumping you'd be surprised to discover what it possible. You should be proud of yourself--and I 'll bet your family is proud of you too.
Now I have to go check your page

I just got back from my latest training walk less then an hour ago and I couldn't wait to get on here and let you all know that I just did my first 5mile walk-and we did it in an hour and a half! Really kind of proud of myself, I am keeping track of all my miles on my personal page as well as a total tally of all the miles to date! we are still under 12 miles (11.6) but it was all done this week! I will do 4 miles on the eliptical tomorrow, something that isnt going to kill my feet! lol Not looking forward to my first 20 mile day! emoticon

Congrats to your son for making the team. I think I hear you shouting out in pride all the way here at my house! I'm very happy for you all.
Enjoy the exercise and I think strength training definitly makes a bit difference--so enjoy!

HE MADE THE TEAM!!! As proud of him as I am I know that it means a lot of driving around to do, thank goodness two other boys from town made the team as well! Matt is a jock, plain and simple, through and through! That is all there is to it! At one point in time I was taking him to football, soccer and horseback riding practices, games and shows! lol talk about spreading yourself thin!

Maddy, my beautiful baby girl is into baseball and soccer, though not the nateral athletic that Matt is, but she tries hard and doesn't give up! She is special in her own way just like every other kid. She is all girl to, not sure how to handle that as I was the biggest tom-boy in school!

Now that I am definately on my way to working out all the time, my friend and I are planning on walking at least three times a week, I am planning on getting in some strength training a bit soon! Maybe that will help out a bunch too!

I think (I hope) it mean Dear Husband. I see it used a lot and it took me a while but it seemed like that is what it means. I'll bet someone who is up on the "compu speak" will verify that for us.
My son's primary instrument is the saxaphone. He joined the percussion ensemble at the high school and plays "aux"--which translates into a little bit of everything. If he can bang on it, he probably plays it. The group is made up of students like him--some are primary percussion players but a good number of them have other instruments as their primary. He is planning to take up the tuba in the fall as well. He will follow in his brothers footsteps. His oldest brother was a primary saxaphone player then tried out the trombone and moved onto the tuba. He also played in the percussion ensemble. The next brother was a primary clarinet--he tried out the bass clarinet and trumpet and then took up the tuba in college. He played in the percussion ensemble. My third, a daughter--was a primary saxaphone player and she played marimba in the ensemble and a bass drum in the college band for a year. It's always interesting here.
I have my fingers and my toes crossed for your son. I wish him luck making that team. And for you, Ms. athlete, great on the miles you are logging. I'll bet it feels great!

Great job for you and your DH (what does that mean btw)! I logged another 3.6 miles today! It was cold and brisk and we kept getting stopped by other walkers so it took us an hour and a half, but it was still great! So that is a total of 6.6 for the week so far and we have another planned for Saturday or Sunday whichever day is gonna be nicer!

Congrats to your boy! That is a great accomplishment! My daughter is trying the flute for the first time this year so we are no where near #1 in the country or even the school-lol But I love to hear her play!

Keep your fingers crossed for my son, he finds out if he made the Freshman baseball team in the morning! He is so nervous, he is even going to take the bus to school to see if he made it and he only takes the bus when he is grounded!

3 miles is great! You inspired me to go out and walk on Saturday morning. It was so cold and the wind was still pretty brisk--but my DH and I went out for a walk on a rail to trail path in my town. A bit more than 5 miles round trip. It took a little more than an hour and then we were off to Peabody for a another Percussion ensemble competition. The HS group of which my son is a proud member, is still #1 ranked in the country after this competition. Sunday, I was seeing my 2 kids off to collge = I guess we both had busy weekends.
I'm just glad you inspired me to walk outside on Saturday--cold, wind--who cares. It was great. We plan to do it again next week if the weather permits.

Well due to an unforseen birth, my friend had to postpone our 5mile hike from yesturday to a 3 mile hike today! But we did it! It was a great day her to be out and about, I don't think the temp got above 40 but the wind was gentle to us! Could have been more like friday!

Are you actually hiking tomorrow or is it just something planned for later. I'm too tired to be creative tonight, but I shall think on a name for hte team Perhaps I will ask my chilcren. They are quite creative (in a twisted sort of way) young adults.

emoticon This is what all of our flags looked like today! The front door to the dealership kept being blown open from the wind and everytime it did, I had to chase my paperwork all around! I finally said to heck with it and moved to an empty office!

I took today off from any and all excersise, I am planning a 5 mile hike tomorrow with my Team Captain! I've always wondered why they called it five mile drive and as I measured it today (drive by) it is 4.9 miles!

We have yet to come up with a name for our team, if anyone out there can think of something please feel free to voice your opinion!

emoticon Tere! Those really burn the calories. I wish it would warm up here so I could get outside. It was so windy and cold today. I know you have similar weather up north. It looks bright and sunny and inviting but step outside--ugh. I had to run out this morning and chase my recycling bins and recyclables down. The wind took them overnight. I wonder if there is a spark exercise in the fitness browser to tell me calories burned for chasing down the garbage. emoticon
Have a great day and keep burning those calories!

I got a 30 day trial membership in the gym affiliated with where I had PT. I went once--I decided I prefer to exercise at home or on my own. I belonged to the YMCA years ago and used the nautilus equipment. I loved it, but it is not recommended for fibromyalgia so I stopped going.

I was told ellipticals were good for the knees--and I too found that it hurt my knees to use one. I'm glad it's not just me. But, even if it didn't hurt my knees, I know I still wouldn't be able to coordinate it--even without the arms.

I tend to not use the arm aspect of the machine, like you I try not to do to much all at one time! LOL
I really need to make it a point to work out everyday as have decided to join a local team and do the 3Day walk in your neck of the woods in August! I am really excited about it and I hope I can walk the entire 60 miles, but if not then I will do my best!
No we don't have a lot of snow, we have been having a lot of rain and warm days! I have half of a back yard now! Can't wait to plant climbing roses along the back of the fence to cover it up!

Hi Tere!
Get much snow? I don't know why I have so much trouble with ellipticals. I was offered 2 of them this past month--free--and i turned them down. I can't coordinate my body enough to use them. I think I am the only one on the face of this earth with that problem!
And they burn SO many calories.

i walk (of course...LOL) and when we were out i asked BF to push the button so i could know exactly how far i am walking when i walk it and it comes out to 1.1 miles going there and i walk it back again so it ends up being 2.2 miles total and each time i do walk it i try to beat my last time. today i did 2.2 in 40 minutes...

beseides walking i do some bellydance. . and that thing is very effective if you can remember to do it daily...and its about 20 minutes with warm up and cool down...

and theres my favorite yoga ball...but i use that more for strength training. . .

hold hands firmly, hold hearts gently.

The gazelle that I have is quite easy to use. It's not one that has the feet peddles suspending off the ground. I have an older model that was given to me. It's more of a glider than a stepper.

Well HI! I think while you were posting here I was posting on your spark page! Thank you for posting here--I am curious about the gazelle. Lot's of people use them--is it difficult to learn the coordination on one? I can't even manage an elliptical and the gazelle looks similar. I'm always looking for more options in my fitness program.

TEAM UPDATE: 4470/30,000 fitness minutes earned by us so far the first 6 days of March. Not too shabby!
Anyone have some new and interesting activities to share?

I did another 30 minutes before bedtime today. Feel great and I'm ready to face the day tomorrow!

I got in my Leslie Sansone today and some strength training too. I have a bit more to do later. I'm having to do all exercise in my stocking feet because I it still hurts too much to wear footwear. The little cherubs come tomorrow so I'll be busy with them.

I've been doing the wall squats holding wearing a 3 month old in a pouch in front of me. He's better than a medicine ball. I like the idea of doing exercises each time you go to the bathroom. What a great idea. I don't know about the calf raises on the wall. I've been doing them off a step and they kill. I would imagine doing them as wall sitting would be torture!
Good luck on that one.

I changed gyms. My goal for March is to get in at least 4 times a week and amping up my cardio from 30 minutes to 45 minutes at least.

My other team is doing a daily workout challenge. Each time we go to the bathroom we do a set each of two different exercises. This month its wall squats and wall sitting calf raises.

Let's stay steady on the course together.
