Day 12 of 40/40 Challenge: Run Forest Run!

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Today I felt great! I finally feel like myself and I felt like exercising.

So, I did week 2/day 2 of the 5K Your Way Training. It felt sooo good to be running without even a thought. Honestly I feel like I can run for longer. But, I'm not trying to jump ahead of the training. I'm not trying to injure myself. So, I followed the plan by walking 3 minutes and then running 1.5 minutes for a total of 30 minutes. (The plan was actually to continue for 27 minutes but I screwed up again. LOL) Anyhoo....

Day 12 of 40/40 Challenge...... SOOOO DONE! YES!!!

    Go sister! Go sister! It's your birthday! Get your workout on! emoticon
Also, I just noticed that I think we're doing two different programs (or at least will be, since I'll start mine next week). You're doing the walk-run, I'm doing the walk-walk.

Day 11 of 40/40 Challenge: And Wii'll Have Fun Fun Fun

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Today I got my 40 minutes of exercise in by just playing! I turned on the Wii and did some Advanced Step, Super Hula Hoop and Rhythm Boxing. Those exercises don't burn a lot of calories, but it was fun!

Day 11 of 40/40 challenge.... DONE!

    See it sounds like your Wii Fitness is fun. I want one. I know I'd probably not be able to find them at Christmas time prices but I still may look for one.

    That hula hoop game is great for the abs. I remember being sore after playing it.

Day 10 of 40/40 Challenge: No Sweat!

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

T.O.M finally made its appearance... Oh joy! NOT! If you thought I wasn't feeling the workout yesterday...that has nothing on today. I really really really wasn't feeling it. (I don't even feel like typing this blog. LOL)

But I just took a leisurely walk (24 min/mile pace) on the treadmill while watching some television. I didn't even bust a sweat. Honestly, I wasn't even trying to. I had my pajamas on for goodness sake! LOL. I just wanted to get the 40 minutes done. That's it.

So, Day 10 of 40/40 Challenge... DONE!

(No pics in my blog today...I'm on my blackberry.)

    Sometimes, it just get where we reeeally don't feel like working out. But, my hat's off to you for pushing yourself. Some exercise is better than none even if you didn't bust a sweat.

    I totally get it, and I think it's great that you hopped (or dragged yourself) onto that treadmill!

BTW, I LOVE your background. We went to the Cherry Blossom Festival a few years ago when we lived in MD! AWESOME.

Day 9 of 40/40 Challenge: I Made It Through!

Monday, March 28, 2011

I WAS NOT feeling it today....WAS NOT feeling it at all!

I know all the studies say exercising actually helps with these symptoms (and they are right, exercise DOES actually help. But getting pass the initial feelings and just STARTING the exercising is the struggle.

BUT, BUT, BUT, BUT.... I DID live up to my commitment to MYSELF!! I most certainly did!! I feel proud! PERSONAL Victory!!!

This 40/40 Challenge is really working out for me.... who knew I would take promises to MYSELF so seriously. Wow! If I can make it through these 40 days...Wow!

Day 9 of 40/40 Challenge.... DONE!!

Oh...goodness me... I almost forget to tell you all what I actually did. LOL

Well, it's a 5K Training Day..Week 2. I was supposed to walk for 3 mins. then jog for 1.5 minutes, but I screwed it up. I must have read the email wrong. I walked 3 mins and then jogged for only 1 minute. I'll have to fix that next time. But for now...

I repeat.....Day 9 of 40/40 Challenge.... DONE!...LOL

Day 8 of 40/40 Challenge: Ready for the Tready!

Sunday, March 27, 2011

Since I started my 5K Training, I haven't really used the treadmill for "regular" exercising. But, today I did.

Sundays are busy and I forgot that the fam and I are going to the circus this evening. If I had remembered, I would have exercised this morning! So after church, we had to hurry and come straight home. As soon as I got here I changed my clothes and headed for the treadmill downstairs.

Knocked out my 40 mins and BAM!!...Day 8 of 40/40 Challenge.... DONE!!!

Took my bath, changed my clothes and NOW....It's off to the circus!!!

I LOVE the Circus! Have fun!
