Thanksgiving day...1 hour Wii aerobics (boxing and step), 30 minutes yoga

Can someone help me out? SupersizeBBW and Tinkerbell need holiday workout rep, but I can't give it to them!!

Tony, agreed, it's a long, slow process. But it's about the journey, not just the destination. I think you're doing great!

I went to the gym on Tuesday and did the elliptical, Stairmaster, and weight machines. Yesterday the gym was closed for Thanksgiving, but my boyfriend and I walked seven miles.

Friday: lots of strolling/walking around stores searching for bargains- not sure how much time to claim since I didn't keep track

Saturday: Turned into family exercise day. Went to a big park/playground down at the Greenville SC Zoo. Spent 80 minutes walking around the paths there. My girls were with me and rode their bikes or walked that whole time, too.
Would have explored further but one of the little ones was showing signs of meltdown and they wanted to play on the huge playground for a while.

Nice job Aust!

Me, went to the gym. About 40 minutes weights, 35 minutes treadmill. Did about 25 minutes yoga at home.

Did a 19 minute mile yesterday....down from 22. My next goal is to do a 15 minute mile, which will probably require a little jogging (yikes!).

Last night was longer low intensity cardio. 25 minutes of Level 7 Stairmaster and 1 hour of treadmill at 3% incline alternating speeds from 2-5.1 MPH.

Today is a rest day. I was really exhausted last night and realized i need a day off so I can be recharged tomorrow. I probably should have skipped it last night b/c a last minute emergency work project came up in early afternoon and i had to work for five straight hours to get it done.

You definitely don't have to jog to do a 15 minute mile. That's only 4 MPH on a treadmill and can easily be done at a fast walk. I think you can walk up to about 4.3 MPH and above that you'd have to jog. I like to do intervals on the treadmill from 2 MPH up to about 8 MPH and I don't jog/run until I get to 5.

For me, a short, fat chick with achy hips and flat feet, 4mph on the treadmill is FAST. I'm working up to it. So far, the very best I can do walking, and only for a few minutes or so at a time is 3.3 (I'm really more comfortable at 2.7), I have jogged a few minutes (like 2 minutes at a time), at the speed of 4 mph. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't actually be able to walk that fast. And if by some miracle I can, I can assure you it it won't be easy.

eep. I'm sorry.

I didn't think about the particulars of it, but I do happen to have a very high waist and disproportionately longer legs, so for me I cover more "ground" than a shorter woman when I walk. IOW, one step takes up a lot of space.

I really did not mean to offend you LYP, I was only going on my own experience with my own height/build.

Oh, it's ok Love, sorry if I snapped a little there, I'm not having a great day. I've made incredible strides in my fitness levels over the last couple years, but there is still such a long way to go, it can be daunting.

And yeah, I agree, I think long legs can make a difference. Seems like I'm always half running to keep up with people.

Thanks, ladies! If I may return the praise, both of you have been knocking me out with what you've been doing. I need to exercise more consistently as you guys do.

I went to the gym tonight and did:

- 30 minutes of elliptical at level 6 (up from level 5 last week), varying inclines to target different muscle groups
- 10 minutes of Stairmaster at level 2
- 150lbs on the leg press
- 45lbs on the leg curl
- 60lbs on the seated row
- 30lbs on the chest press

Doesn't knock your socks off, but since it's been so long since I've exercised regularly, I'm basically starting from zero. I would have liked to have done more, but I keep getting to the gym late (it closes at 9pm). I really need to start leaving the office earlier.

Thanks Frankie. I've been making an extra effort these days to get back to my regular old routine. I will have to say that the main thing for me was finding something that I could do at home. If I had to go to the gym everyday to exercise, I would not be nearly as consistant with my exercise. So, for me, Wii has been a godsend. It's probably not as good as going to the gym, but I do work up a sweat, and it's fun enough to keep me engaged and returning to it... I'm a fan.

Last night 1 hour of Wii aerobics, (step and boxing), and 20 minutes yoga.
