Emily's week 19

Not a thing this week - the stomach flu really wiped our family out.

Practical Exercise

We retured home from CA about a week ago and I have been working to get things back in shape ever since. Practical exercise has made up the bulk of my workouts- heavy duty housework. I have been doing lots of yardwork- pruning, raking, etc... and still have much more to go. I have also tried to walk or ride the exercise bike at least once a day. Soon I'll be getting back to writing things down soon, but so far I have been too busy trying to conquer disorganiztion in other places of my life. :)

It is good to see everyone's posts. :)

Congratulations Katie P!

Week 3

Th: Body shaping class

Back at it this week. I've got new running shoes, which have made a world of difference in my aerobics class (little did I know how unstable my old shoes were). But they did not make my muscles prepared for the soreness they would feel since I have not been exercising much lately. Ouchie.

Next week's goal: three workout sessions (should help with the sore muscles).

Yolanda - I don't know how it's going in the contest with my brother, 'cause he and I haven't weighed in together since Christmas. But I highly doubt I'm winning. :)  I should find out how it's going at the end of this next week.


*you can tell I'm getting serious again: I'm doing my least favorite level of the Shred.

Week 2

Like Emily, I did nothing this week. Start of the semester meetings, job applications, and class prep made going to the gym more trouble than it was worth this week. Will get back into the swing of things next week.

Emily's week 17

Not one bit of exercise to report this week. But my family has been cared for and I spent 31 hours at an amazing birth. So I think my priorities are doing ok. :)

Week 1

So I managed to get back into things after Christmas and my winter minimester had ended. I have only gotten to the gym on Tuesdays & Thursdays, but I still consider myself to be on vacation for another week, when the semester starts up again. In other words, I feel like I can get away with it for another week and then will stop having the major excuse of "relaxing" to keep me out of the gym on Saturdays.

Have been battling a cough and a sore knee in the process, which has not been fun, but I have been able to avoid letting them sidetrack my routine.

Also, an update on the 10 lb challenge: I believe I lost a total of 6 lbs, but I'm not exactly sure. Now that the holidays are over, I'm trying to be more conscious about what I eat and how much I am eating. My hubby is trying to do the same thing, which should make the process a bit easier overall. I'm 12 lbs away from losing the extra pounds that I have been carrying since the birth of my son.

Jessica, how did it go for you and your brother?

week 2 back (i guess)

T and W--2 mile run
Meant to do pilates the rest of the week since Jesse is out of town, but the unexpected 6 hour hospital ordeal on Thurs wiped me out.  All for a stupid splint.  Since when have pediatricians been unable to put a splint on??

Not much exercise, but starting up again was the greater point.  My body feels itself again and that is very nice.
