Saturday, April 09, 2011

Day 21 of 40/40 Challenge..... DONE! (Thanks Leslie!)


I reached my EPIC exercise goal tonight! Whew! I'm so glad. Last week I didn't make it (even with exercising every day). But, this week, I did it. I actually burned more than the 2011 calories required for the point.

NOW... If only I would lose some weight!!!

Day 20 of 40/40 Challenge: Halfway Through...

Friday, April 08, 2011

Wow! It's day 20! I am halfway through my challenge and I think I've definitely gained exactly what I set out to gain: CONSISTENCY! It feels good that I'm actually enjoying working out. I think going from exercising every day to exercising 5 days a week will be a nice break. I think my body will appreciate it... and NEED it!

BUT, I can't be thinking about that now. I've got 20 more days to go. I can't quit now. I can't lose momentum or resolve. I don't plan on it!!

I've already completed my 40 minutes of exercising today! I did the same thing I did last night: jump rope and aerobics.

I've only got 264 more calories to burn to meet my EPIC goal of burning 2011 calories this week. I'm going to do it to! the grace of God. I am going to take steps to ensure that this happens!

But, for now.... Day 20 of 40/40 Challenge....

Day 19 of 40/40 Challenge: JUMP!!!

Thursday, April 07, 2011

I think I LOVE jumping rope!... REALLY!

Sometimes, admittedly, my energy isn't up to it. I know when that is because my body just won't lift off the floor. But, today was NOT that kind of day. I definitely felt like it!

I also did some light (low impact) aerobics for the last 15 minutes when my knee was getting crunchy. I could hear it crunching. Darn knee keeps reminding me that I'm not in my twenties anymore! How dare it! LOL

Anyway, Day 19 of 40/40 Challenge..... DONE!!

    Oh ya, I keep thinking the more weight I lose the crunchiness in the knees will go away, but no, guess it's going to be there always. I got a jump rope in my resistance tubing kit, and was pretty excited about it, until I tried to jump with it and realized I must've gotten David Robinson's jump rope. I should go ahead and get one though, since it is such great cardio.

    I like your pictures. emoticon And yes we don't appreciate our 20s until we're older and think about how easy things were then, but guess what you're still at it. So emoticon and emoticon

Day 18 of 40/40 Challenge: Making the Best of my Time

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Today I hit the track. I wasn't prepared AT ALL! I had to take my kids to Boy and Girl Scouts Meeting at my church. They are in there for 1.5 hours. I had on flat shoes and a skirt and a long all-weather coat. I did not have my sneakers. I didn't even have socks on.

I decided to go down to the local community college around the corner and just walk the track. (I could have walked anywhere; but I like to walk the track because I'll know just how far I went.) That was an EXCELLENT idea because I hadn't exercised yet today and I would have had to exercise late tonight if I hadn't. It wasn't the most comfortable walk with the shoes I had on. And I probably looked CRAZY to just about everyout out there. BUT....I'm soooo glad I walked and made the best of my time!

Day 18 of 40/40 Challenge.... DONE!!!

    Good for you! Who cares what you looked like. I'm glad you did it, I just hope you didn't get any blisters from your flats.

    Yay for taking the opportunity to walk today. I strapped Riley in her stroller and we went for a walk as well, she enjoys it just as much as I do. It was a little warmer than I had expected for the morning to have started out so cool though.

It's late. I'm tired. I don't have a picture. I don't have a story. LOL.

I rode the stationary bike at my Mom's house today for 47 minutes.
