    good 3 mi 00:42 14:00 pace

    Great day to be outside today. While windy, it was nice. Dog and I had a nice leisurely walk, but since the Police dogs were out in force on the way back, had to carry the dog for the last mile. ... read more

    blah Medical Clinic for 5 hours

    My pedometer said I walked for close to 7 miles (6.89) and I lifted my daughter out of her chair no less than 12 times...and at close to 100 pounds this should count for something. Add to that hav... read more

    Could not sleep at all last night. Body said it wanted to eat, but I wanted to work off frustrations from the day. Did core fitness, hula hoops, stretch bands, step aerobics as well as some walki... read more

    alright Treadmill 4.5 mi 01:14 16:22 pace

    Early morning since could not sleep and didn't want to eat. Got on the mill and just walked as I watched the morning news. Great way to wake up and hear "you are up bright and early".

    alright Walking in the hood 1.15 mi 00:22 19:07 pace

    Just wanted to get outside and get some fresh air. Needed to take the pooch out some too. We both enjoyed this.

  7. FIT
    good Aerobics, strength stretching... 01:15

    Kept it down as I didn't want to undo what has been done. Felt really great. Now, to be able to get things done. Monday can't come fast enough. Itching to put in more efforts.

    good Aerobics 00:47

    blah At home 00:43

    Dusted off an old aerobics DVD I had with Jillian Michaels. All I can say is is that I probably shouldn't have done this one. While I did need it, let's hope I didn't do any damage... read more

  11. walk
    good Treadmill 2 mi 00:34 16:47 pace

    After taking some time off and getting back at this, felt really good. 2.5% grade. Now, to get the OK to be up and jogging or riding a bike would feel great.

  12. walk
    good Mall and Dreadmill 4.25 mi 01:45 24:42 pace

    1 hour power walk at the mall, 1/2 hour of running errands at the strip mall next to mall (dry cleaners, post office and paid a bill) then 15 mins on dreadmill at home. This is good.

      And with carrying things home from the mall as well as strip mall, that should count for aerobics as well. Those bags were weighing down after a bit.

    alright Dreadmill 1 mi 00:17 16:33 pace

    Warm up before getting started on housework. Need to clean walls in the girls room, so that should count for cardio as well as core and a workout don't cha' think.

      Cleaning definitely counts as aerobic activity!

    Itching to go faster and really crank it up, but, still under doctor's orders to keep it cool. Had a great workout over all.

  15. walk
    good Dreadmill 3.25 mi 00:56 17:13 pace

    Felt great. Had to keep the pace down until I get medical clearance. However, just knowing that I can still move, albeit slowly, is encouraging to say the least. A new week has begun. Gotta kee... read more

  16. walk
    alright The mall 2.75 mi 00:35 12:43 pace

    Had to try something new. Went to the mall and just power walked for a while. Good to know that I can still move quickly if need be. Not the best, but still getting back out there feels good.

      Hi Helen, so glad you are feeling good. Keep up the great work and it's always great to do different things in a workout plan.Changing it up keeps us from getting bored doing the same thing. I have been trying to figure out what to add myself. I think going to a totally different gym will help. Keep up the great work.

  17. walk
    blah Dreadmill 2.14 mi 00:38 17:45 pace

    OK, so not good at all for someone who walked a half-marathon. Can only walk at a pace of 3.3 to 3.4 mph for now. All things considered, not bad.

  18. RUN
    good to the polling place and back 1.5 mi 00:26 17:05 pace

    This includes the time it took me to cast my vote as well. Good thing no one was in line to vote. Looking better and better for the race in Jan.

  19. walk
    great Treadmill 4 mi 00:59 14:51 pace

    First real work out since surgery. There is hope after all.

  20. walk
    alright house 2 mi 00:29 14:26 pace

    Just tired I guess. Want to keep the legs in shape. Still stiff, but not too bad.
