April Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Ok, I had to start one of these.:thumbup: I know it's not quite April, but with it snowing here, I had to at least have April thoughts.

Let's keep up the great work and see the results coming.

Me personally, I want to be below 270 before softball starts at the end of the month. Shooting for 267-268

I'm committing to at least 20 hours of exercise in April...I just order the AB Rocket, looking forward to it getting here. Also walking the track and climbing the stair at the high school football field, and doing the bike at night. I also have a weight goal of getting to 200 by May 8th, going on vacation then. Good luck everyone.

Ok, so last night (I know, last night of March, but I'm putting it here:biggrin:), I did my upper body workout. Went real good, 11 rep circuits per exercise. This morning was back on elliptical for 65 minutes, 1103 calories and 5.36 miles. Back in tonight for lower body and 11 rep circuits.

Hope all is going well for you guys and your workout goals so far.

I was on elliptical this morning and did 60minute and the darn machine kicked me off...lol but only burn 845cal. I think if you run it on default it will only do 60min (actually was 58min and 2min cool down) then it shut off. I usually do 35min elliptical and then 30min treadmill but I wasnt that tired today and I also had a good view :lol:

Ceradad: one of these days ill catch up to you... lol

So there's no "exercise police" here? First time signing up - I thought there might be a set challenge of time etc...Whosya, going to keep me in check????...LOL

Right now thru the first of May I'm in a twice a wk Boot Camp w/trainer. No idea what I'll be doing till that day comes...BTW it's an A$$ whip.

3/4 days I'm doing hard cardio & weight training or core exercises set by the man that whips my butt.

Not sure of any additional info to throw out - advise welcomed..:blush:

Hey all. I am in too. I have been going strong since surgery. For April, I will walk 6 days/week until April 17th (6 weeks post op visit and possible 1st fill.) At that point I hope to get the OK to start running, again. If that happens, I will re-start the Couch to 5K program with walking or elliptical in between, maintain 6 days/week.

I'm in. Even though I was banded 8 months ago, I only recently found and joined this web site. I did not start exercising until January 08 but have consistently done low intensity aerobics since then. I plan to get in 18 hours of aerobic activity (walking) and 8 hours of resistance training. We'll see.....:thumbup:

Sorry, no workout police, just lots of encouragement from those on here.

As for me, as I said yesterday, last night was lower body circuit training. This morning, I had a chiro appt, so I was able to get extra cardio in. Did 65 minutes on elliptical for 5.33 miles and 1085 calories. Then, did another 65 on the elliptical doing interval training. Did 5.44 miles and 1150 calories. Sweating bullets the whole time.:wink_smile:

      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.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @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.
