March Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Stef-yup, trifind.com/MN. There are ALOT around here each summer by the looks of it. Me and a guy from church are looking at doing at least one this summer. Like I said, I'm going to try it out on Thurs at the gym and see how well it goes for me.

Of course, if I do this, I will NOT be wearing a Speedo. There isn't enough money in the world for that.:tongue:

Just checking in you all. I didn't get to do zumba because my girlfriend made me feel bad for not studying. So I didn't go because I did need to get a better grade, and guess what still didn't do great on the test. I am so frustrated...Just having a lot of bad days...latley. So I guess my gym time is basically getting cut out until, after Final Exam next week. Don't get me wrong I want to exercise too. I feel like I need to exercise to but I know I have to study. What a horrible position to be in. I am not giving up Saturdays, I feel like I need that, just to make it through, but for the next two weeks, I guess that is all I can do...I feel like the gym is my only outlet..What hurts the most is that no one knows how much working out really means to me.. Okay well I felt the need to gripe..It's just been a rough day! Take care all!!

Trust me, you don't want to see that.:huh2:

daddy, congrats on signing up for the race. Keep us posted on the training.

Jess, school sucks. I'm going through the same thing with work, school and working out. No fun at all.

For cardio today, I did 65 minutes on thge elliptical machine for 5.3 miles and 1094 calories. Tomorrow will be my first attempt at the mileages for the mini triathlon. Should prove interesting. I've never swam 1/2 mile straight. Then to follow it up with 14 miles on bike and 5k running/walking, WHEW! I'm tired just thinking about it.:cool2:

I'm so proud of you two and everyone else here! :huh2:

Okay all so I couldn't take it. I hit the gym this afternoon, then I went for a walk with the dog because it was so nice here...I couldn't resist...How horrible. I really need it emotionally. I think that is what people don't understand, sometimes exercise isn't just for physical but mental as well. So, I didn't get to do zumba but I worked my Lat pull down,strength exercises,and abs. Anyways, thank you all for the support! I don't know how you all do it either...I couldn't imagine shuffling a job in the mix...The kids and my school is enough for me..Although I did all my general education classes, worked a job and took care of kids so...now the classes are just tougher...Oh well have to move passed this. Anyways, Whosyadaddy, let me know as you get to Ohio, I will give you my number so we can meet up for Starbucks or something!! Hey congrats in signing up for the race!!! I think it is awesome, puts all your hard work to the test!! Next week will be so much better. You guys are all doing awesome!!Welcome NYGirl!!

Whosyadaddy, you down 6 lbs? You go!!!!!! What an awesome job!! Well my advice, make sure you have plenty of time...Don't spread yourself to thin!!! I got myself in deep waters!! But I know I can do this...It may just take me longer. I took Spanish in high school! But our town has a lot of workers here that work on the farms and landscaping places, so I can pick up on a few things they say...but not much although some of our zumba music is in spanish so I have been picking up a few words! That is awesome if your company will reimburse you. Okay take care all, off to cook dinner and hit the books. Take Care!!!

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
