Shelley everything that you are not used to will be hard the first couple of times... It will get better ;)

 

Went for an 1:30 walk with DS in the sun this morning, it was great! I think I'll take him to the park this afternoon but will ride the bike because my legs are killing me! Will post final results later on :)

3/30 100 sit-ups = 5 minutes + 1 mile around yard = 20 minutes + 100 more sit-ups = 5 minutes + 25 = 30 + 10 minutes up and down stairs = 40 + 545 = 585/1,000 (I would have done at least half an hour more but my exercise bike is croaking again)

 

Good job, shelley4! :)

Thx lab! "Funny" you must say this, a coworker started the insanity program and I told her to take it slow. 3 day in she pulled a muscle :(

 

I feel great :) Exercise everyday is the key for me and I think the nice weather has a lot to do with it! I can take DS out with me and we both have fun!

I count walking around stores as exercising.

3/25 Walmart, Lowe's, Publix at least two hours - 120 + 20 minutes exercise bike = 140 + 100 sit-ups = 145

3/27 2 miles around yard - 40 minutes + 145 = 185 + 330 = 515

 

Like Jaxy, I'm nowhere near the goal, just doing as much as I can as time allows.
