July Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I'm back and I'm in!!! Like Becky (hey girlfriend -- great to have you joining us :thumbup::smile::)), I'm recovering from surgery and my Dr. doesn't want me doing too much too soon, so I'm setting a very modest goal for myself this month, but look forward to rocking with the rest of you in the coming months!

I got a twenty minute walk in yesterday, today I'm shooting for 30 minutes. Have a great day everyone!!!

Treadmill today:

interval incline and speed

4 min warm-up

jogging the entire 41 minutes!

You know I have to make myself get on and I sort of drag my feet most days, but it feels so good when you are done!!! :thumbup:

I hope I'm not too late to join. I'm setting a pretty low goal for myself this month. Considering it's been, oh I dunno about 3 years since I've done any real exercise! So my goal is simply to work out 3x a week this month, but I am really shooting for more. I know that if I have to come and check in every day that I'll be accountable and get it done!

Today I swam 20 laps and walked for 30, so off to a good start for me! Already feeling a nice burst of energy from that too! I love this feeling!! :thumbup:

BTW you are all doing awesome! I can't believe some of the numbers you are putting up! VERY inspiring! keep up all the hard work!

Frangi, glad I've got my exercise buddy back! We'll both be back in full swing in no time.

I walked for 35 minutes today and I'm continuing to pick up the pace. Gotta get started on potato salad now. We're having a big bash today. Happy 4th to everyone!

Checking in and modifying my goal for the month.

3 mornings a week: Couch to 5k (that remains unchanged)

4 mornings a week: 45 minutes of walking

Originally, I reported that I would do the 3 mornings a week and walk every evening with my mom. She has proven to be an unreliable walking buddy (I'd never tell her that, though). So, I'd rather get my exercise in every morning on my own, and then if my mom wants to walk in the evening, it will just be added bonus, but I don't expect it more than 1 - 3 days a week.

Day three (and four, five, six) are swimming! Spending a long weekend in Phoenix by a friend's pool. With this heat, I am still trying to walk, but swimming is much more my style when I am melting!

=) So far, so good!

Hey Whosya! Great job on the 5K. You've turned into a super athlete.

I did another 35 minute walk this morning. I'm up to 3 mph!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
