You guys did great in May! I saw a ton of you hitting your goal. Good luck in June!

 

I totally didn't hit my goal. Good excuse, I was laid out with bronchitis that turned into a brutal feverish sinus infection. But this month I'm bound and determined. A lot of my minutes last month wound up being walking (I live urban and walk to actually get places a lot), which is great movement, but I want to balance that with more rigorous working out. So I'm tracking both. I also want to incorporate more weight/strength training -- I feel like I'm too heavy on cardio and pilates now.

 

June 1 -- 45 minutes walking, 45 minutes weight training and abs

 

Walking total: 45 minutes

Workout total: 45 minutes

Total: 90 minutes

Mind if I join in for the first time?  Do I count any and all exercise type of activity?  I ran for 25 minutes this morning and then walked the kids to school so round trip that was 30 minutes.

I'm in this month, but my goal will only be 600 min. I am a total summer slacker.  I'd much rather hang out at the pool with my kids than work out!

 

6/3 45 min piyo

I hear ya Nola!!!  I usually meet my goals in the summer because all three of my kids run cross country.  So when I take them to practice - I just run too.

 

So based on that - I'm gonna try for my 1500 again.  I have failed so many times - maybe June will do it!

 

6/1  -  30 minutes digging weeds

6/2  -  65minute run/walk

6/3  -  125 minutes 65 running and 60 digging

I'm keeping my goal small...Can I add a before picture too? It keeps me motivated to know that someone will be looking for an "after" in 23 days!

 

 

6/1-6/6  - Just a guess but I think it was 40mins of various exercise (I kind of seriously bruised my finger when my son dropped a weight on it...)

6/7 - 20min "Beginner Bootcamp" from Exercise TV

Being brave...

I hate that "mama belly" thing that happens after pregnancy...esp two of them. I know I'm not fat. However, I used to be in top physical condition and sometimes it bothers me to be so out of shape.

Can I jump in here too?  I was lurking a few days ago and came back to join in the fun!

 

6/1: 20min yoga, 40min Crunch Pilates Burn and Firm

6/2: 20min yoga, 45 Bellydance, 90 min gardening

6/3: 20min yoga, 75min capoeira, 15 min walk with puppy 

6/4: 20min yoga, 20 min walk

6/5: 20 min yoga, 20min walk

6/6: 20 min yoga, 40min Bollywood Dance Workout, 30 min Giam Pilates video, 15 min walk with puppy, 30min gardening

6/7: 20min yoga, 180min (leisurely) hike (ds's first hike! and with our puppy too so it was slow going but a good elevation gain!), 40min

bellydance

 

AFWife, I know what you mean about the mama belly!  I am really trying hard to embrace my beautiful new mama body "The Shape of a Mother" style, but it's honestly really challenging.  I've been really active since I was a kid but that all changed when we moved to our new place when I was pregnant, then got a job later that requires me to just sit for hours at a time! i'm really pushing myself hard to make up for it with more activity! ds is almost two now and I thought my mama belly would have vanished by now so thats kind of my extra insentive just because I think it shows that I haven't been active enough, for my standards anyway, since the lovely little one came along. I hope that once I'm regularly active enough I'll feel good in my body even if there is a little extra belly fat and even more extra belly skin (tee hee!).  

 

Anyhoo, enough rambling on! happy june ladies! we can do it!
