    45 minutes boxing on the Wii (I think I may do this regularly so I can do some cardio work...that and it's fun ..my arms are actually tired from all the punching)

    100 jumping jacks

    40 sit-ups

    20 squats

    50 kicks (each leg)


    Went shopping for a work uniform today. Noticed my legs are a little chunkier than I remember and I have a little trace of belly fat. I'm not working hard enough...I need to do more cardio to burn more calories. I forget, that while I was in school, I would walk 2-3 miles each day with a 20-30lb bag hanging off me. Sometimes running to places if I was late. Now I'm not doing that, so even with my little workout, I'm not burning enough calories. It's been raining too much to walk outside lately.

    I always lose weight when I get sick, but it's probly usually the bad kind of weight loss, so I am trying to combat that by eating as much protein as I can still while I'm sick.
    I hope you feel better soon. Veggies and fruits are good too - lots of healthy food to help give your body fuel to fight the sickness.

    Heh, I remember I used to work up a pretty good sweat playing Wii Tennis. My roommate at the time wouldn't let me live that one down.

    You bring up a good point with walking around the campus. I had the same issue when I first graduated, and it became 100 times worse when I started various office jobs.

    Good job with the workouts, though. Is it possible that the weight was gained before you started exercising, and with the exercise you've just leveled out?

    I might be a bit late on my end-of-week report tomorrow, as I'm going to be on the road most of the day (I'll do my best to eat well ). If I don't post it tomorrow, I will probably post it Monday.

    Not a problem at all. Thanks for the heads up.

    On track. Doing well with cardio and eating. Need to do better with weights.
    Down 3 more lbs!

    Here's a question ---
    I'm do mostly elliptical trainer for 30-45 minutes at a pretty good pace daily. I hope to have the weights for upper body and lower body done more regularly this week. I feel like my arms/upper body in general is only getting weight training attention. Do I need to do more exercise besides the weight training? Any suggestions that don't involve elliptical machines with the arm holds on a cross trainer?

    Thank you!

    This has been another week of bad health, but getting better. I did light exercise.
    -Walked 3 hours, some 13km (8 mi) total
    -I worked this week, probably getting another 3 hours worth of walking, 13km

    Next week: running, strength training or swimming, walking

    It's possible. I was in the best shape at the graduation ceremonies in May. During the summer, perhaps it was the heat that discouraged me from walking to class religiously everyday, or the change in my diet (I had to eat cafeteria food because I didn't have a kitchen in those particular dorms). Or both. I know the heat kept me from doing many of the hiking and kayaking activities I did all spring.

    I have a pair of jeans that I usually only wear to gigs, and they fit way better! Not tight, like they usually are. I was happy about that! I did get some cupcakes today at Sprinkles, but I'm rationing them to one a day.

    Waterpark day today with friends and my sister. So.. about 5 hours+ of swimming in the wave pool, climbing stairs, waiting in line, and playing. Im exhausted XD A bit of a different sort of work out, but I did some things to make the most exercise i could get. Raced people, resisted waves, did jumping with waves to try and touch the top of the walls, etc. It was pretty fun all around, even with the undertows sucking me in and trapping me forcing Clowny to pull me to safety lmao.
