    Didn't think I'd get these in today. Things came up, and then I got into 'later; mode, as in "I'll do that later". It takes me a while to do these little things. ahh, we all have our own excuses I guess.
    Anyway, I did 3 sets of my 10 sit up's, 10 pushups, 10 reverse crunches, and 10 squats. .I added on 10 sloppy superman's. I'm planning on trying a different 'core' exercise every day this week. I'd like to find something to replace my sit-ups with-I don't think they're good for my back. Damn, it's gonna be dark soon, I have to go do my walk.

    Yeah, sit-ups are not good for your back at all. Bothers me that I have to do them as part of the Army PT test - and thus why I do everything I can to not do situps but still work the core.

    I can't seem to increase past two sets every other day. I'm going to make it one set every day, and I swear to Christ I'm going to move it to "when I flop out of bed" rather than "when I find time". Hopefully that will get me going in the day.

    A friend of mine that used to be really quite large has lost over 100lbs in the past 14 months, and people who've seen her as recently as November don't even recognize her now. She looks freaking amazing.

    Now, I just need to get my girlfriend in on this with me. We've been livivng pretty much completely sedentary lifestyles the last several years, as we took jobs that didn't have us hardly active at all. Casino dealer, semi-pro poker player, now I'm a professional programmer, and she's still a casino dealer. We've honestly turned into disgusting blobs compared to what we were when we met.

    I definitely am not hitting the weight loss goal that I was so excited to think about at the beginning of this month, unless magic happens, or I stop eating completely between now and the 29th, because so far, the scale says I haven't moved. Maybe the scale is broke.

    Just keep working at it. There's a big hump to overcome at first before you start seeing results.

    still plugging away at my daily exercises. I am p to three sets of pushups and 3 sets of thre different core exercises. I am seeing some results but I am sure if I would eat a little less I am sure I will see better results. Switched my "cheat day" for this week and I don't feel that was too bad. Super proud of myself for skipping desert last night when I went out for the wrestling pay per view last night!

    That big hump is my belly!

    Naw, my bellys doing a lot better. I'd have a bit less of it if I didn't do that late night eating thing. Which, I WILL get under control- I'm letting myself know that now!
    I check the deal sites before the workout--it's always nice to see that touchpad sleeves and cases are still making the hot deals sections.
    New Monday! New day!
    O.k. Time to do something! Did my sets of sit-up (crunches), pushups, squats, and alternating arm/leg supermans. Oh, and reverse crunches. I always forget something,and then have to go do some of the routine again to remember!
    Going to do the one arm/one leg supermans for awhile before I move up to the regular superman.
    For the new people, Hello, and welcome. It doesn't matter how small you start, just start. And post it!
    Will walk at lunchtime. Temp is 22F now-That's going to make me walk faster.
    I'm going to do an extra set now, (minus the crunches)-just because I'm feeling pretty good.

    At last, I did 6 workout sessions last week. This was my goal for last couple of months but finally achieved this month! I am seeing no loss in my weight as I expected as I am already at 149lb. So looks like my workouts are maintaining my body weight.
    Currently i am doing interval running and walking (5 min of run @ 4.7mph and 2 min of walk @ 3.8mph) and I have a goal to run for 5k without walking in between. Hopefully I will do that in couple of months.

    I did Pilates over the last week and soaked in a hot bath with salts to get my back better, which it is, and yesterday walked with the dogs 30 minutes and played Frisbee until it got way too muddy from all the melting snow. I am content with my weight really. I sit behind a computer all day so my goals revolve around getting physical activity and staying flexible. I do want to eat healthy, but not too obsessively. My goals for eating healthy is to make sure I get fruits and vegetables every day, not too many starches, and watch the sweets, which at times I have trouble resisting. My husband doesn't help in that area either.

    I do like the JogStats app and will get back to using it. It tells me how far I walked and the speed I walked. You can pick also running obviously, as well as riding a bike. I haven't used it for hiking yet, but will try to remember to do that next time I go. If walking or running laps you can also monitor those. A really great app!

    My goal was achieved last week. This week I would like to double the amount and see how far I can go. It will be 50 sit-up, 50 push-up, and 100 dumbbell lifting every two days. That's do this!!

    So, my Week three goal was again 3 days of cardio for 30+ minutes.

    I usually run Mon., Wed., Fri. in the mornings before work. I was on the early shift (7:30am arrival), this week, and that always makes it hard. Mon. and Wed. went well, accept, that I didn't run for a full 25 minutes like I had planned on Mon.

    However, Thur. Night I had a late night meeting, and took me until almost midnight. So, when I just couldn't make it up at 5:30 to fit in the run. And despite my efforts to fit it in some other time, It just didn't happen.

    So, I was 2 for 3 this week.

    Next weeks goal is again 3 of 3. Because I missed some last week, I am going to stay with 25 minutes of running. But after this week, I will do a full 30 minutes of running. I am on the regular shift that week (9:00am start), so it should be easy to get the extra 5 minutes in.

    I've had some big success! I've finally started on an exercise program. Realized the core workout program would be too intense for me - someone who hasn't exercised and very much overweight.

    I'm doing a 21 day cardio program using my Wii gamesystem and EA Sport's Active 2 program. Was worn out, but completed the program today. After I complete the 21 day program, then I can move up to a 9 week program that covers cardio, core, and flexibility.

    Also, as I am running. I can't help but think of this strip from my favorite web comic.

    It is soooo true. At least it is for me.

    The SpeedyMarks? They make about seventeen zillion apps, you'll have to be more specific. If you're talking about Workout for interval training, no, I did not. I have a routine that while interval in nature isn't timed.

    Screw the scale. Just focus on being healthy - the weight loss will take care of itself.

    I'm keeping up with my 2x/week 60-minute+ cardio workout, and still going wheat-free. The toughest part is getting the 12+ oz. of protein for breakfast--the cold cereal habit was with me for 30+ years, and getting motivated to cook something is harder when it seems like wasting time.

    In truth, it's really not that big a deal, but getting my mind to believe it is. I'm using the TWiTHD app on my TP to good effect to help the cause--listening to netcasts while I'm cooking is giving me a sense of making good use of the time, so I'm not so impatient with it.

    Now I just need to get that third weekly workout going for strength and flexibility...

    Ughhh! Son got sick last week and by Friday I was as well. Monday the wife was at work and I was home with my son since my employer gave us presidents day off. Went up and down the stairs a lot doing laundry didn't really sit down all day. Going to try to get to gym tomorrow, if I can find a decongestant that works.
