BLC26 TNT

Thursday, September 25, 2014

OK, I am officially done, Seesaws, 1st of all I have never heard of this form of exercise an 2nd I have to get my 24 year old daughter explain to me and last night and this morning I set out to get it done..... I got the concept and gave it a college try but could only do about half, my right knee was killing me so I was only able to do about half, I will add up my number and get them posted. I am going to be careful, I already take a pain pill everyday for this knee and their is no sense in making it worse.

Thanks for this challenge it was certainly one.

    emoticon Trying and doing what you can without hurting yourself is great. There is no sense getting hurt and not being able to continue through the challenge. emoticon

    Way to go on what you did....I did some, but I ran out of time - it took time to get through it as well as a lot of sweat.

    Natasha, I wish I could say it was an original idea on the seesaws. But alas I got this idea from a boot camp class that I used to go to. (It would have been more "doable" if the ladies had picked easier exercises. Miliana must have abs of steel because the sprinters and training camps were from her list of favorite strength training exercises. I was like, seriously, these are hard and I've been working out pretty consistently for over a year. Thanks for giving it a try. I promise next week will not be so hard.

BLC26 Expectations

Monday, September 22, 2014

Well this is my 3rd go round with BLC and I usually loose weight during the round only to regain it before the next round begins, but this time I really want to commit myself to lose and continue loosing.

My goal this round is to loose 10 pounds and the same in inches hopefully from around my mid-section, but I will take what I can get. I recently made a committment to start running or at least try to learn to run, my 1st attemp was ok, I ran/walk a mile in 15 minutes, my second attempt was after a 9 mile bike ride and a brief walking cool down and then I attempted to run my culdusac 2 times with success but my calves are killing me I guess I over did it. I'm not giving up but I will modify.

I have begin to track my meals again and trying to cut back from sweets which is my toughest challange. One day at at time.

    Yep....one day at a time....making progress....trying new things....some work...some need better options and modifications. My running is more like a trot, but I get there and I'm moving more. Here's to running strength emoticon and tracking courage emoticon and satisfactory sweet substitutes emoticon

BLC 26 - My 1st blog with the Scarlet Seals

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted a blog and I guess the thing that motivates me right now is the fact that I have committed myself to getting in at least 10,000 steps per day. I start out in the morning upon rising, I make up my bed, get dressed and start stepping, I walk in the house in front of the TV usually watching one of my favorite show, Criminal Minds, Law and Order or maybe even Monk, they are all repeats but I enjoy them all the same anyway. I commit myself to getting at least 5,000 steps at this time that's 2.5 miles and if I'm feeling real good I will try to get a job in. Then to ensure I get the reminder of my steps while at work, I will walk on my two 15 minute breaks and for lunch we get an hour so I eat for 30/45 minutes enjoying my meal and then will get in another 15/20 minute walk, usually by time I leave work I have over 10,000 steps, by bedtime I usually over 11k, I will continue to do this while doing BLC 26 and will also incorporate all the challenges and exercise they require also.

Looking forward to a great round.

    Nice goal.....keep us up to date on your 10,000 (or more) steps a day. That's a challenge, but good AND doable. Way to go.

My 1st 5K Walk / Run 02/16/14

Sunday, February 16, 2014

I am flying high today.... Why you ask because I participated and completed my first 5K run / walk. It was a run / walk for charity "5 can 5K walk/run. The entry fee was 5 cans of food that would be donated the food pantries and shelters for Riverside, CA. I walked the K and completed it in 55 minutes, my husband ran the race and actually ended up doing 5.8 miles due to the course guides giving about 20 runners the wrong directions, he completed his run in 51.54 minutes. We had a great time and I am truly looking forward to the next one. Check out our pictures.











A very cool day......
