Welcome Stephenie!  thanks for joining us.  This has really made me feel more like  excerising knowing someone is watching me makes me feel like  I have to keep at it  and encouraging each other if we get down helps to.  Good luck!

A couple of quotes to inspire us:

Our strength often increases in proportion

 to the obstacles imposed upon it

Sow a thought and you reap an action;
sow an act and you reap a habit;
sow a habit and you reap a character;
sow a character and you reap a destiny.

Off to a rough, slow start this month, but I feel like I can get back in the swing of things if I don't let myself get bogged down at what I wasn't able to do earlier this month.

2/1/11 No workout
2/2/11 about 50 minutes of shoveling (ice shoving, so it was heavy stuff)! (297 calories according to SparkPeople & I was pretty sore afterwards)
2/3/11- 2/8/11 No workout (I can't believe that much time passed, I really let time get away from me but it's been so crazy lately)
2/9/11 20 minutes- Denise Austin's Boot Camp Total Body Blast: Cardio Boot Camp

20 minutes- Denise Austin's Boot Camp Total Body Blast: Strength Boot Camp- used the 5 lbs weights
2/10/11 No workout
2/11/11 60 minutes Super Challenge (Leslie Sanson Walk Away the Pounds Ultimate Collection) - held 5 lbs weights during the last mile
2/12/11 No workout
2/13/11 20 minutes- Level 1 of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (used 5 lb weights)

15 minutes- McDonald's 15 minute workouts- Core (I've had this DVD for years and haven't done it in years, it's not bad, but I get a tougher workout from my Denise Austin Belly Fat Blasters DVD...still it was nice to do something different).
2/14/11 No workout
2/15/11 20 minutes- Level 1 of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (used 5 lb weights)

10 minutes Denise Austin's Best Belly Fat-Blasters (1st segment- Personal Training System)
2/16/11 15 minutes- Denise Austin Blast Away the Pounds Indoor Walk- segment 1: Easy Walk (15 minute mile)

15 minutes- Denise Austin Blast Away the Pounds Indoor Walk- segment 2: Fat Blasting Interval Walk (15 minute mile)

15 minutes- Denise Austin Blast Away the Pounds Indoor Walk- segment 3: Power Walk and Tone (15 minute mile)- used 5 lbs weights
2/17/11 No workout
2/18/11 51 minutes- watched an episode of The Tudors while walking, jogging, and doing other in place moves (did get a bit sweaty by the end and my watch said I burned 176 calories, so not bad considering I didn't want to do anything).

15 minutes- McDonald's 15 minute workouts- Strength- much more intense than their core workout.
2/19/11 No workout
2/20/11 30 minutes- Level 1 of Jillian Michaels 6 Week Six-Pack: I used 5 lb weights & did the advanced moves for the majority of the workout! :-)
2/21/11 About 40 minutes of shoveling our house and next door (outside for 45 minutes, but there were a few moments where I didn't do any shoveling while cars were being moved in and out of the driveway, so I figured closer to 40 is fair). Now my back is bugging me (first time in all the shoveling we've had this year), so I'm not going to do another workout on top of it today.
2/22/11 15 minutes- Denise Austin Blast Away the Pounds Indoor Walk- segment 2: Fat Blasting Interval Walk (15 minute mile)

15 minutes- Denise Austin Blast Away the Pounds Indoor Walk- segment 3: Power Walk and Tone (15 minute mile)- used 5 lbs weights

2/27/11 45 minutes- walking while watching a show on DVD (did this twice with my Netflixed "The Tudors" that I figured I'd try it with something else since I really didn't feel like working out today at all (155 calories according to my watch)

10 minutes Denise Austin's Best Belly Fat-Blasters (7th segment- Hit the Spot Core Complete: Core and Legs)

Glad you are back Brenna!  Keep up the great work girls.  only 12 months in a year and we are half way through our second on to our third.  Snow shoveling sure counts and hopefully that will be ending soon!

Ok, the past two weeks have been bad for me in terms of getting workouts in.  This week I'm going to try to do better, and see if I can get at least 5 days of working out in to get myself back on track! Wednesday used to be my "break from working out" day but I no longer have that after-work commitment, though I will be starting tutoring soon, so whichever day(s) that is will probably become the new "break days."

I hear you Brenna, I have Dr appointments on the next 2 Tuesday and I am fretting I will lose it!  In the past when my schedule gets messed up is when I give up and I don't want to do that this time.  So maybe walking on my wrong day will work out and I'll less time tomorrow so getting in a strength excercise won't take as much time as walking so it will work out for me.

Thanks mom!  I have really fallen off the wagon.  Went to PA for a hunting show and I exercised when I was there, but Sunday we left at 3:30 am -so no exercise that day and Monday i got sick.  I'm hoping to start back on track this weekend.  I am also struggling with not reading and eating at the same time.  That has been my habit for a long time!!

You can do it Angela! :-)

I'm hoping to get back on track next week since I'm off, but that might make it worse since then there's no structure to the day.  We shall see...

Angela as long as you are gettng that water in to you don't worry about reading and eating right now.  That may be something you are not ready to commit too and thats ok!  2 m onths ago remember I wasn't ready to commit to any excercise?  Eating good breakfasts are this weeks goal. I think this will be an easy one for us and it might encourage you!

Thank you everyone for the messages and the PMs.  I am trying to get back on track.  I am going to have cereal for breakfast and lunch and a good dinner.  I will also try to get up early and exercise tomorrow.  Not reading while I am eating is very tough.  Maybe I will just do that for dinner.

A few more days Angela and a new month starts perfect for getting back to the routine!  Congratulations everyone for working out, and surely snow shoveling counts!  Thats hard work!  And your are getting nice fresh air.  I can't wait for spring to get out in the fresh air and walk, walk walk!
