January 2009 Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Yesterday, upper body workout followed up with 65 minutes on elliptical. No running yesterday as my legs were KILLING me from leg workout on Tuesday.

A.M. today, 24 minute/2.5 mile run-put me over my weekly goal (WOOOT). Then, 15 minutes on elliptical. Tonight will be leg workout and more cardio.

nothing this morning - took the kiddos to school. I've done something funky to my ankle (not twisted just a bit sore) - I'm going to hit the gym when I get off though - maybe the rower? or swimming?

Can I ask what is the purpose of a sauna? I sweat enough doing cardio to go sit in heat not to mention I live in a sauna 8 mos a year in Houston.

Wednesday: OFF

Thursday: 80 min. Legs/Calfs/Shoulders

30 min. StairClimber (torture chamber) I can go longer on any other machine but this one is a killer. Says I burned 230 cal in 30 min. so I had some cheetos when I got home.

A sauna can help take the aches out of your muscles after a workout. It can detox you and it can help relax you. I miss being in the sauna.

I work out at home. It is just easy with my work/commute/family schedule.

Today-

3.38 mile run (no walking today...YAY!)

30 minutes Zumba

Hey Georgia Girl. I was an advid jogger as a teenager and twentysomething young woman, but because of my weight gain I stopped. I so want to jog again, but I am afraid because I am 5'6" and 220 pounds.

I don't want to stress my joints by jogging/running with this excess weight. However, I know that I can lose the weight quicker if I jog/run rather than walk.

Are you running on a treadmill or outdoors. I so want to run/jo outdoors, but I was thinking I would have to loose more weight first.:confused:
