January 2009 Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Whew. I cant afford a personal trainer, but where there's a will there's a way hey?

i admire you jacqui pushing yourself like that - unfortunately i need my trainer to do that to me ..... our gym's prices are going up and it's becoming a budget buster.

our trainer is opening up a sports rehab clinic in april - and DH and i decided to finish out our purchased sessions then pay him directly (vs gym) to train us at the house. it will be half the cost & i really can't give him up just yet:tongue:

got clearance to workout - nothing more than 10lbs for a month.

today - wii yoga...snow/ice out, will try to get to gym w/hubby later in the day for cardio

Today: No work-outs.

The dentist says my root canal has a bad infection, so I am now on a high dose of a different antibiotic. Let's hope it works.

Today: Night off. Taking vicodin for the root-canal infection. But it does actually feel better and it appears to be less swollen.

I am so back on the treadmill tomorrow. Thank goodness the weekend is almost here!:thumbup:

47 min. on stationary bike. It said some enormous miles but the levels were off. I was way higher than I normally go and it claimed my heart rate never went over 112. So something was messed up.

Been off the board for a week now. My mom broke her leg down in IA and I went down from Saturday until Wed to help her out as she has never broken a bone in her body and I have.:rolleyes:

So, to update:

Friday: Hit the chiropractor before I found out about my mom. Not able to work out.

Saturday and Sunday: In IA helping out mom. Forgot running shoes so had to buy some new ones on Sunday.

Monday: Hit the Golds Gym in W. Des Moines in the am for upper body and cardio. Ran 2 miles/18:17 minutes after the workout and 35 minutes on elliptical. Went back in the pm to do another 2 miles/20 minutes and 35 minutes on elliptical.

Tuesday: Went in the pm for leg workout and cardio. 2.5 mile/25 minute run followed by 35 minutes on elliptical.

Wed: nothing, drove back home.

Thurs: am-legs really sore due to not lifting w/legs for about 2 wks. Managed 35 minutes on ellilptical and 1.25 mile/12 minute run on treadmill. Then, SWAT training during the day, no lifting.

Today: 4.25 mile/41:30 minute run followed by 15 minutes on elliptical. Into the gym tonight for upper body.

Haven't updated in a few days, so here I go.

Tuesday - Wii Fit step aerobics - 30 min. (not a great workout, but hey, I moved)

Wednesday - 30 min treadmill, 15 min upper body strength, 15 min elliptical

Thursday - 15 min treadmill, 15 min lower body strength, 30 min elliptical

Today - I am taking off this afternoon and going to the gym and staying for a while. I need to push myself, and make up for the fact that I won't be going tomorrow since my daughter has both a dress rehearsal and dance performance.

Woo hoo - made it through January! Appt next week for a potential fill and to see how I officially did. Hoping for a small break from the plateau.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
