I started getting up a little early for work in August to fit exercise in during my hectic softball coaching season. It was really hard the first two days, but after that I began looking forward to it. So far I've stuck to it ever since- just 12-15 minutes in the morning and then in the evening it's easy to squeeze in the remaining 15 minutes. The best part is that it's working- I've lost 13 pounds (in addition to eating more sensibly). Now that I'm in the habit I feel energized by it and just don't feel "on" unless I do it. Good luck...

hi 2bethin,

I want to say hi and take your time and learn from yourself that year. Have fun doing it and get your friend and love one involved.

Hi There,

I'm pretty new here. I think it is great that your walking to work. I live to far away from my work to walk and I may think of an excuse not to even if it were close enough. The point is you are doing it. YEAH!!!
I weigh 260 and I know how hard it is to stay motivated. However I am trying to get healthy and need to do as much as possible. I am officially starting 1-1-07. This has to be the year to take it off. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Keep up the good work

OK, I'm sorry ya'll, but when I woke up at 5:15am it was 10 degrees out side and too cold to get out of bed. I got up, but got right back down. BBBBUUURRRR!!! I cuddled up with my husband and stayed there for at least another 30 minutes. No time for exercise yet, but I am going to try to fit some in here at work in a little bit.

12/7/06 6:29 P

I had to go shopping again today but ended up walking over 2 miles while doing it. Will do my strength training tonight.

Pretty tired actually. But it's the week before finals week so that's normal. I'm going to need to wait to see how energized I feel during winter break when I'm doing this goal to see if it's really helping with my energy levels.

Well it's a good thing I joined this challenge last night because if I would have known it was going to be -10 F this morning I might not have decided to start today. But I did. I got up and went to the gym! 35 minutes on the elliptical.

It will definitely help Elizabeth. It's the pushing yourself out of bed thing that is the problem. It's hard to try and psyc yourself into getting up. Once you do, your heart is really pumping and the adreneline keeps you going for a while.

I'd really love to join this challenge! I'm not a morning person at all so this really will be a challenge for me. I've been incredibly tired lately. More than I should be for so close to finals even. I'm hoping that waking up in the morning and getting my heart pumping right away might help.

12/6/06 8:16 P

I was out doing christmas shopping all day so didn't get my regular exercise done. But i think all the walking i did in the stores made up for it.

cleaning is functional excercise, and i never go to the gym, i workout at about three thrity am, which is about the only time i really have to devote to it....i did 15 minutes of pilates, and 35 minutes of step pedometer says that i have walked 19826 steps today...not bad....

MAMA2TONY Posts: 796

I didn't actually get into the gym to work out, but I did some serious quick cleaning this morning. I was running all over the house and trying to stay in a fast pace. I had to get a lot of stuff done before work so I didn't have to worry about it when I got home from choir practice. I did about 30 minutes worth of work in the house. Take out the trash, laundry, bathroom, livingroom, dishes, yell at rotten kittens emoticon and on and on. Phew. I am at work now and it's time to relax.
