Good job, all of you who exercised in April and especially those who achieved 1,000 and more minutes! May has begun and summer is beginning. Let's see how well we do this month.

I'm going to try for 2,000 minutes again. You're welcome to set your goal at 1,000 minutes, 1,500 minutes, 2,000 minutes or whatever fits you and your fitness routine.

Thanks for exercising with me and inspiring me to do more smile.gif

5/1 2 miles walked so far ~ 50 minutes
At least an hour walking around shopping
20 minutes on my exercise bike
50 + 60 + 20 = 130
50/2,000 --> 130/2,000

May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)

It was too stormy and rainy today to walk outside so no miles walked. I walked up and down stairs for 10 minutes; my bike is croaking, possibly due to the weather, so just 10 minutes today.

 

140/2,000

10 minutes riding my exercise bike + approximately 5 minutes for 100 sit-ups = 15 minutes inside in the rain.

140 + 15 = 155

 

155/2,000

1 mile, 25 minutes + 100 sit-ups, 3 minutes + 40 minutes of picking up sticks + 25 minutes of picking up sticks + 1 mile before dinner, 20 minutes + 40 minutes walk to the blueberry patch, picked blueberries, and walked home = 153 minutes

275 + 153 = 428/2,000

I'm praying for you lab.

 

5/6 walked a mile ~30 min + 70 minutes of picking up sticks + 1 mile ~ 30 min = 130

5/7 1 mile so far; maybe none tonight - root canal this afternoon.

130 + 30 + 428 = 558

 

588/2,000


May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)

Now that I live further I can count my bike riding! Before it was only 10 mins and I didn't feel like I was exercising but now I stick that big belly of mine to my belly button and it feels more like a work out!

 

Today was not a good day... Just felt blehhh. Comon periods, come, so I can feel myself again :P

5/3  -  65 total in the gym - treadmill and elliptical

5/4  -  took home cooked food to my college kid for exam week

5/5  -  70 minutes walking/jogging with hubby ----just couldn't run with the congestion

5/6  -  uh....my ear drum ruptured last night.  So I took a pass today

5/7  -  120 minutes dug holes, ran the tiller, raked - garden time!   but the pollen did me in

10 minutes yesterday (I came in in the middle of a mile because my foot hurt, and didn't walk at sunrise because I was too tired from staying up too late with friends after my root canal the night before)

 

2 miles so far today = roughly 52 + 10 = 62

1 more mile + 10 minutes of walking (1 mile cut short because I came in when I heard gunshots nearby just to be safe) - 25 + 10 = 35

 

62 + 35 + 598 = 695/2,000


May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)

Anyway, I was gonna try but I was running (HA!) out of time, looking for my headphones (haven't been listening to music at all because I usually run with DS in the jogger), it was getting too late so I didn't... Maybe tomorrow?
