I finished my week two today. I don't feel like it was as effective as my week one because overall I did less in terms of working out but I still did my 10 minutes a day and that's what counts. I'm beyond excited that I have this long of a workout streak, and my goal for week three is to make my workouts a little bit longer.

My week two was fraught with the Springs Fire in Ventura County. I did not track all that I did, but, since my Y was not working 3 of the days, I started doing the videos on SP and finding that with modifications I could do the land exercises, up til last week, I only would work out in water. And I accepted my own challenge to include more land exercise this week.

My week 2 went well. I'm restricted to limited exercise so I have been focusing on getting my physical therapy prescribed exercises done 2-3 times per day, as well as getting in the hot pool for a little heart pumping exercise as I am allowed. emoticon . I feel like as long as I am doing my best and completing this challenge as my abilities allowed, I feel I too can participate. So many times I feel like I shouldn't take on challenges based on others abilities. Here at sparks people I can do my best and see positive trends based on where I have been and where I am working to go toward (a healthier me). This challenge has been very positive experience so far. Thanks!

My week 2 ended on April 29. I got my movement in every day. Sort of a mundane, got-through-it week. emoticon
I was very aware of doing extra movement, and that was very good.

Week two began on April 24th.
Since the weather has started getting nice. I added riding my bike to my workouts.
Didn't go to well the first day. I haven't been on a bike since I was a teenager. I was able to ride it for 30 minutes. My goal is to be able to ride my bike from my house to the corner store, which is about 6 miles round trip.

My Week 2 began on Tuesday, 4/23. It was a very long day, so my 10 minutes on the Wii had to be enough of "committed" movement...
Wednesday was also a long, tiring day. 10 minutes was doing pretty good...
Today, Thursday, was good. I bowled 90 minutes. That perked me up, and has motivated me to do more tomorrow.
I've followed my eating plan, too! emoticon

This week I have added these things to my daily exercise.

They are.....

Shopping several days this week.
Working in my flower garden some each day.
I have started to wear my pedometer daily and I am working on increasing my steps.
I have been parking farther away from the door on days that I go shopping.
Have been walking the dog more often. She enjoys it!



Namaste,

This week went pretty well for me. I incorporated some things into my day as suggested. I find reasons to take more steps and be more active. I will make multiple trips to take things to other rooms, rather than load up and carry many things. Play tag with my toddler.

End of week two for me - I know I did more than last week but a couple of days were *just* over the 10 min mark. But it's a start and I'm conscious of it now. Aiming to complete a challenge with another team that will mean 20 min of exercise for at least 4 days this week so maybe I can make streak without interruptions this time.

I posted Hot Spot video this week in response to how to squeeze more fitness in my foot traffic... I am getting a smile every time I pass my hot spot because of the 10x exercises I do... yesterday my hot spot added over 120 moves to my day over and beyond intentional 10-minutes daily and everything else

Hi, LESLEOTR! You'd be surprised what gains can occur in a couple days of life-style change. The female body is such that we gain and lose weight more often than men. Just keep to your workout and life-style change. THEN check out your clothes; how do they fit, are you losing inches from your waist; belt check, and can you wear some closet clothes (you know the ones that you can't fit but not willing to give away). BECAUSE the numbers on the scale can be effected by so many different factors; water weight, etc. especially since we are female!

Oh, also ensure that you are eating enough calories to maintain that new life-style change. Less than 40g of protein daily could mean muscle loss, and not enough calories can lead to body storing fat. You may want to see about a nutritionist at your local hospital; some do have free healthy life-style change programs.

TO ALL OF US....

Last couple days of the week two for me. I have implemented several more ideas from the article. This SP site is really supporting my efforts and keeping me accountable and motivated. I'm moving more and doing good with weight management, also. THANKS, guys!!

Being bipolar, things go in cycles for me and I've hit a point where exercise is very hard to do now. So, I'm thrilled with the challenges for this week. Today, it just seemed like too much trouble to set up a DVD or do videos on the computer, so I ended up dancing around the camper with the kids. Got a good 20 mins of cardio in. :)
I plan on using some of the other suggestions from the articles:
All dishes are handwashed at the camper
Laundry is carried to and from the onsite laundromat, so that adds activity
I will use a hand basket when doing the small loads of groceries
I will do short bursts of squats, pushups, etc while watching tv, or other times during the day
I already walk the dogs morning and evening, but I will try to add some time to those walks.
Keep up dancing with the kids, and I pick up my three year old and dance with him in my arms!

Also, I saw a 30 day squat challenge that I might try. It's not that hard to do 10-20 squats at a time through the day. :)

I joined this challenge at the perfect time for me. So glad!

Several suggestions that I have already implemented from 30 Days to an Active Lifestyle article is parking in the furthest away part of the parking lot and walking to my destination, taking walks up and down the Cong hill and visiting stores between, taking the stairs when possible, of course manual housework activities, and using gym equipment i.e treadmill, etc. BUT still had to work harder to get 6000 steps.
emoticon

Thank you for the calendar because I can post it and incorporate more goals. My target NOW is 10, 000 steps a day. I'm moving upwards thanks to the support from SP which keeps me accountable.

Oh, and of course, I wear my pedometer.

Today is my rest day and it is much needed! I've definitely been getting in more than 10 minutes of exercise daily. I'm about to be in week three; I think tomorrow starts that for me. I'm very happy that I joined this challenge! It has not only been life changing but also a constant source of inspiration and accountability! I'm feeling so good and it's only been two weeks!

Here's to keeping it moving!

Week 2 went great... I surpassed 10 min of daily exercise every day. I'm up to a minimum of 30 minutes a day. During Week 2, I made a point of parking at the furthest spot in parking lots away from the entrance and rather then sending an email or chat to anyone within the office building I made a point of walking to their offices with my notebook in hand to ask the question I normally would have sat at my desk to ask.... on to Week 3!

Got in 120 minutes today. 70 minutes of spin class and the rest upper body weights and stretching. I took yesterday off but give myself credit for 10 minutes because I spent the day with my 4 year old grandson, the best way to get a workout.

Now that it's spring, I've started gardening (YAY!) and hanging clothes out to dry. "10 minute" workouts are going well. Up to 25 minutes MWF and 40 minutes TRS.

The two creative ways that I'm getting in my workouts are:

Working out (my ZCUT dvds) while my son naps
and
Bike riding with my husband before dinner, when my son has just gotten up from his nap :D

My husband takes his "all out" "high energy" bike rides while my son is napping too. So, after we both finish up and stretch, we wait for our son to get up and then take him on a leisurely bike ride :D He enjoys it and we get the chance to spend time together as a family. So far, this technique has worked really well for us. However, when my husband goes back to work, I'll be just doing ZCUT during my son's naps and getting my exercising through chores :)

Today's workout is ZCUT #3! Let's do this!

During week 2 of the 10-Minute Challenge I found LOTS of ways to add activity and sneak in exercise. I walked, rather than drove to the grocery store to buy groceries. That meant I had to walk home as well, carrying the groceries! I use cloth tote bags with handles, so I used the opportunity to squeeze in some bicep curls and lateral raises. I walk or march in place whenever I'm waiting for something (i.e. the microwave, coffee, etc.), and add step-ups, squats, and lunges whenever possible during my daily activities.

AND, I just lost 2 more pounds! It's not reflecting on my tracker because Mondays are my weigh in days, but I'm hoping the number will go up by next Monday:D I also met another mini goal, and am totally loving SP again!

During Week 2 I carried the laundry up and down the stairs in my arms instead of the laundry basket and I pushed the grocery cart around the perimeter of the store a couple of extra times before checking out.

So I finished week 1, got 15 to 20 min walking 5 days good news right? So why did I gain 4lbs? Eating didn't change in fact it was a little better. Hummm go figure. Don't even tell me it's muscle cause I sure didn't do enough or for long enough (months) to get muscle mass. emoticon

My husband and I will start coaching our daughter soccer team this week. So I'm hoping to fit in some extra activity running around with the girls. I will also try to fit in some strength exercises during commercials breaks.

Week 2 is finished. I work my FitBit pedometer every day except Saturday. I didn't cook at home like I wanted due to my work schedule, however I only ate out once this past week and I guess you could say that technically I cooked at home but I wasn't homemade. In reading through the ways to "sneak it in and tone it up", I realized that I do most of these already on a weekly if not daily basis. I work 3-4 12 hr night shifts a week as a nurse, so my time is valuable and have to do a lot of multi-tasking at home and work.

I forgot to mention the ways I'm sneaking exercise into my daily activities, so here goes:

I don't have a dishwasher, so do all my dishes by hand. This gives me a great opportunity to do push-ups on the counter as well as hamstring curls, leg lifts, toe raises, and combinations :)

I do squats while brushing my and flossing.

When I am cleaning, I make an effort to treat the work like a workout, and really put my whole body into it, adding squats, lunges, twists, etc. and using as much strength as I can. It really makes cleaning more enjoyable, lol.

I'm doing great, I've done at least 10 minutes of exercise every day since I started last week. Most days I have done more, adding a few new things as I go.

Last week I got started doing the Walk Kick Leslie Sansone video, but this week I realize that may have been a mistake because the kickboxing seems to be making my bad back worse :( In addition, I pushed myself too hard and went too long without taking a rest day, so I ended up hitting a wall, totally exhausted. I am just coming back from a day and a half of rest and recovery, and ready to go full force again! For the record, I did still manage to get my 10 minutes in, but the intensity was significantly lower during my recovery day(s).

I played basketball with my students today for about half an hour (I'm terrible, but I still had fun!) and I raked the yard yesterday. I also did heel lifts at the gas pump. Those are my "sneak it in" type of activities this week...also keeping up with yoga and walking/easy jogging but I've fallen off track a bit with any strength training. I'd like to get back into the habit of doing some bodyweight strength training everyday.

This week I will try walking through commercials--I think I'll be walking more than sitting with so many commercials. I'm also going to try adding 10 min. to my morning routine, which may mean that I need to get up a few min. earlier--ugh, but no one said it would be easy. I'm excited for the playoffs--lost 3 lbs. my first week!

a crazy way to add extra exercise? Like Easter, someone gives you candy? Leave it in the car...every time you want some candy you have to at least go to the car to get it....

I'm starting week 2 today and just read through the list of things to sneak in extra movement. I have noticed that at work I'm doing a lot of stretching and mini exercises while at my desk and trying to get up for a few minutes each hour. Now to keep building on that as well as other longer exercise times.

I am finishing week 2 tomorrow!
So far I took the stairs sometimes instead of the elevator, I walked almost everywhere (used the bus a few times, since the lack of time is my biggest issue),I walked my best friend's dog some times, and started wearing sports clothes most of the time, so that I can be more active much more easily by any chance!
I was a little disappointed because I was not able to eat within range, and not only didn't I llose, but I even gained a little weight, but the fact that I kept up with my exercise streak gives me something to feel good about myself! emoticon emoticon

Today begins week 2 for me. I plan to add more activity to my day by wearing a pedometer (I have a FitBit that I have been using for almost a month now) and following a recipe and cooking at home at least 2 days this week. This is also something that I try to do every week. In reading through the ways to "sneak it in and tone it up", I realized that I do most of these already on a weekly if not daily basis. I work 3-4 12 hr night shifts a week as a nurse, so my time is valuable and have to do a lot of multi-tasking at home and work. I will check back in at the end of the week and share how it went!

I am getting in about 50 min. exercise 6 days a week. I take Sunday off as it is the Lord's day.

I've been committed to fitting in 10 minutes every day with great success! A couple of days I did 45+ minutes. Although the weight is not melting off (:() I am accepting that the processes must be in place for long term success - it will leave me eventually!

Its great having the Spark videos as an option for getting in a 10 minute workout when there's no time for anything more than that. I'll also do my own version of Walk Away the Pounds, or stretch or do strengthening exercises in front of the tv or music for half an hour or so before tackling other projects in the evening. It makes for a nice breather.

I'm normally getting way more than 10 minutes a day but I am still trying to focus moving for at least 10 minutes in order to avoid breaking my streak. I'm usually 5/7 days a week but I'm working on it.

Have done more than the 10 minutes by using the elliptical for at least 12 minutes first thing in the morning. Then do at least one Spark video. Am trying to take longer walks with my dog and now that it is still light outside after dinner, my husband and I can both take her for a walk.
The best part is my energy level has increased. No more afternoon slump!

I'm doing great and just HAVING the goal of 10 minutes a day gets me going and it is ALWAYS ends up to be way more than 10 minutes.

I turned up the disco station and danced through unloading the dishwasher. Parked further away at the store and walked with pep in my step. Did lots of chair exercises.. which are NOT easy!

I too, like the idea of counter pushups while coffee is brewing.
Today I'm going to a mall. Normally I would go in my wheelchair but today I think I'm gonna wing it and go solo. Have to decide whether or not to take my walker so I have a place to sit if I need it. I'm thinking I will not even take that.
Today I tried to do the core workout from Fit Firm and Fired up but found that there were two or three of the exercises I couldn't do because of bad shoulder joints. So I just did bridgeups and straight leg raises during those times.
