In the 13 in 13 thread, many of us mentioned getting in better shape and improving our health.  My challenge to myself and to anyone else who might be interested, is to get a minimum of 30 mins of exercise a day. Bike, walk, dance, swim, scrub tiles, whatever!  Just move 30 minutes a day to better health!  The benefits of regular exercise are amazing, just check out some of these links if you need proof:

Who's with me?

 

Jan 1 - walked 5 miles with dh

Jan 2 - rode exercise bike for 45 mins

I've got to get in on this one.  A few months ago, I stopped exercising and it started showing quickly, I'm tired, cranky, chubbier -- for awhile, I was doing fantastic, and was feeling great too.  Then I got lazy, and the yo-yo began again.

 

So count me in :)

I count my miles for each week, they are not much, but I try.  The pounds have slowly been coming off, maybe because I have not had an appetite.  Unfortunately, I can not commit to your intriguing plan, too much going on this month... (chemo, radiation & taxes).

 

I will be watching to see how you all are doing.  Oh, I can guarantee I will get at least 3 hours of constant exercise on Saturday's, does that count?   :happy0203:

I'll give it a try.  It might be interested with the three monkeys but if I can get them bundled they might be willing to walk around the neighborhood once (not a big neighborhood but a 6 yo, 4 1/2 yo, and 18 month old).

I would like to simply edit/add to the same post each day, but it doesn't seem to let me.  Any thoughts?

Sorry Andrea, the system is designed to allow someone to edit their posts, only for a limited time.

Sounds like ya'll are getting on with it!  Our lifestyle is too erratic to get on a schedule, but we definitely get ALOT of exercise (hiking, walking, snow shoeing/walking & dancing, kayaking & biking).  As soon as we get the enclosed patio cleared out more, we want to put our treadmill out there.  It's a cool place so working up a sweat won't be so bad.  The TV out there went capoot, so we took the wii and it's goodies off and need to get them hooked up to a new tv...when we run onto one that's cheap.  Want those options of exercise when we just cannot get out of the house.

It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things"...let me walk this out Lord.

Yay for us!   :cheer:  We are going to be fit!

 

Philbe, feel free to join in!  The goal isn't to count miles or even do any specific exercise, the goal is to simply move for a minimum of 30 minutes a day.  The benefits of just 30 a day are amazing.  For me, if I don't exercise (I have a sedentary job) my blood pressure goes up.  I had surgery the end of November and wasn't able to exercise for 3 weeks, then I was caught up in Christmas and eating and drinking badly, and didn't exercise and my blood pressure was not good.  Now, after just 6 days of regular exercise and eating healthy, my bp is completely normal!   :hapydancsmil: I'm happy, not to mention that the exercise is helping with my nonstop hot flashes!

P.S.  I also dropped a pound!  WoooHoooo!

Yay on the weight loss Andrea! I'm feeling very motivated by seeing you doing something everyday. Today was hard! I went back to work after two weeks off...after 6 hours in the classroom I was pooped! My feet and back hurt and I laid down on the couch and slept for an hour. Yikes! I sure didn't want to get on that bike today. But, I like posting here each day. I actually watched the Biggest Loser while I rode. That was motivating....

Jan 1: 2 miles on exercise bike
Jan 2: 2 miles on exercise bike
Jan 3: 2 miles on exercise bike
Jan 4: 2 miles on exercise bike
Jan 5: 2 miles on exercise bike
Jan 6: 2 miles on exercise bike
Jan 7: 2 miles on exercise bike + hours chasing after children

Dogmom - on your exercise bike, have you tried doing arm exercises and/or pedaling backwards to mix things up a bit?  I also use a music stand to hold my kindle or book while I'm on the bike.  I prefer to walk or do the Leslie Sansone workouts but I have to listen to my knee.  Due to an injury two years ago, my knee tells me what exercise it can or cannot handle that day!  Congrats again on the weight loss!
