    Finished all my exercises. I am going to make myself some tea
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    20 minutes weights/abs/stretches whatnot.

    I've got to keep reminding myself that I can't compare myself to you guys or the rest of the class or what the teacher expects because I've never exercised before. Otherwise, I guess I'm okay.

    Keep it up, Hap.

    20 minutes of cardio/day is all you really need to lose weight/add muscle fast -- especially if you've never exercised before.

    After 20 minutes becomes too easy, you can introduce other exercises to flavor your routine.

    At first, just keep it simple. 20 minutes of cardio. You pick the speed; the endorphins will reward you.

    Okay, since I'm trying to get into an excerise routine at the moment, I'll join in on this.

    Started: 09/02/09

    Long-term Goal:

    Establish daily and weekly exercise routine.
    Be able to jog entire walk route. (Or be able to accompany boyfriend on one of his runs. Since he is a runner, this is a REALLY long-term goal!)
    Tone legs, especially thighs.
    Improve upper body strength as I have almost none.

    Short-term Goal for the month:

    Move up to 10lb dumbbells.
    Go for a walk at least 3 times a week and jog for 5 minutes during walk.

    Just finished today:

    Weights used: 2 5lb dumbbells

    20 push-ups
    30 sit-ups
    20 oblique crunches (for each side)
    15 overhead lifts
    50 kicks (for each leg)
    20 squats with weights
    20 biscep lifts (for each arm)
    20 tricep lifts


    I did all of this yesterday as well as taking a walk for half an hour. Am a little sore.

    Walked 14 blocks between taking kid to bus stop and taking the kids babysat to the park.

    Walked normal evening mile with husband.

    Did 5 mins of crunches. The ones usehername suggested are pretty great. I was hurting like heck earlier, so I think it's working.

    Less than two cans of soda consumed and I'll try not to drink another before bed. (Had part of a can last night after I posted, so I was bad.)

    Nuking single serve of Brussels sprouts as I type. Yum!

    Did 25 minutes on a new machine - the Cybex Arc Trainer. (Cybex International - Cross Trainers) Boy - that thing kicked my butt! Yikes. And yay! I also went for a 20 minute walk afterward. That takes care of the cardio portion of my goal.

    Might I recommend cutting up a banana and adding it to the cereal? Good source of potassium, easy to cut up, cheap, and I personally enjoy the texture they add to otherwise healthy cereal.

    Also, smoothies are your friend. Water/milk/yogurt plus some bagged frozen fruit makes for a pretty good snack. Almost as good as an ICEE. Almost.

    Wonderful - thank you for joining us! I look forward to hearing about your exercising and progress.

    Also, don't be surprised if you become addicted to the feeling of being sore!

    Good job working physical activity into your daily life.

    Some ideas for the soda, if you are interested : Have you seen the smaller cans they have? Instead of cutting back on frequency, you can try cutting back on portion size. Another idea, and this very well may not work for you, is to make some freeze pops out of the soda. You will still get the sweetness and taste, but the extra work to consume the pop may make you cut back on how much you consume. This, of course, depends on how much the carbonation is a factor in your soda enjoyment.

    I've noticed that soda cans seem to be getting smaller -- aside from the normal brands making short cans, my school only sells cans like this:



    they're the same height as regular soda cans but much, much thinner.

    I'm thinking something like that is going to be my best bet. I rarely finish a can of soda, so it would be better to have smaller servings. Especially since I want it with lunch, supper, and late night snack and I have just about zero capacity for self-denial.

    Maybe the small cans or bottles, even though they are a little more pricey. I'm not switching to diet, but I could probably switch to a cane sugar brand or something. Not sure they are a lot better.
