Yay, a new week!
I was going to wait until the new week started to start posting here. Um... hi *peeks head in* It's been thought that it might be bad for me to keep up with this thread, but I want to give it a try. If I start to get out of hand (the Eat to Live folks know what I mean -- negative about myself or competitive or anything like that), feel free to give me a whack or two.



Okay, so tomorrow I'm going to go get a membership at the gym (yay!) and for this week I'll say I'm going to go to the gym every day that I don't work (I think work AND working out would kill me
), and the days I do work, I'm going to walk either to or from.

woohoo *excited*

Oh yeah and sandie -- what's a pedometer?

Hi Mayuko!
Pedometers are fun... I just got one a couple weeks ago.

Okay, since last week was my worst hamster week in a long time, I need to be extra good this week. Here are my goals:

Today: Running around Disneyland. That counts.


Monday: run, weights, ballet

Tuesday: dance 3 hours

Wednesday: rest

Thursday: run, speed training, weights, yoga

Friday: crosstraining of some sort, weights, yoga

Saturday: distance run, yoga, pilates

Have a great week, hamsters!!

40 minutes on the elliptical machine and 60 crunches. Have a great week everyone!

I always wanted a pedometer, I love measuring things and my workouts are no exception- I need to see if my dad has one that I could borrow - he is the gadget king.

I visited a women's fitness center a few days ago, and I'm going to sign up tomorrow (Anyone heard of Curves? There are about 6,000 locations, but I never heard of it until recently). My plan is to work out 3 times a week. I already take stairs (both up and down) at work whenever I can, as opposed to taking an elevator. I have a super-stressful full-time job and a really enjoyable part-time job, so my time is limited. I tend to eat when I'm stressed, but I've been working on that, and I hope the workouts will contribute significantly in that area. Perhaps I don't qualify as a hamster yet, but maybe when I start working out?

Yesterday was a warm day - perfect for swimming so I swam for 35 mins.

Question: I'm going back to my homeland for a month next week (yay! and boo! at the same time) and staying with my parents. What can I do to keep fit i.e just to maintain health?

Note: I really don't like jogging and there is no pool in close proximity. I'm thinking of jumping rope (but I tire out so quickly!) and there is a "Power-Rider" in my house so maybe I can use that for 20 mins 3 times a week?

Hey hamsters! Thank goodness it's a new week! The last one ended terribly for me because I ended up getting a stomach bug and basically didn't do any form of exercise Thurs, Fri, or Sat. Today I plan on doing 70 minutes of yoga to get back into the groove.


Happy hamsterin'!

Okay, so I didn't walk to or from work today, but I would have been super-late if I walked to there, and it was dinnertime when I left and I just wanted to get home and have my pizza!


Work was strenuous enough though @[email protected];;

But I start at the gym tomorrow!
Here's hoping my shoes are acceptable "athletic shoes" so I don't have to go buy new ones just to work out
I hate shoe shopping, what with 99% of the selection at most stores being made with leather...

Sandie - one or the other works for me, we can count diet Coke because that will help me get my vegetable intake up too! *laughs* Actually I'm trying to cut out soda... my addiction is diet Snapple. hee.

Now where's my pedometer??

THE GOALS:

Monday: 50 minute run, upper body lifting

Tuesday: 45 minute spin, 3 hours in pool

Then, I go on vacation. I don't know what I will be doing, but I will try to keep hamstering.....

Curves definately counts as hamstering! An unnamed hamster counts suntanning; surely you can count going to a gym!

I'm buying a pedometre on Friday. we're also getting a stationary bike, instead of the treadmill. I used to love biking, but had a couple bad accidents (a knee injury and then temporarily paralized), so I haven't been able to bike more then a couple minutes without pain. Therefore, we discussed it and thought a stationary bike would be good, as I wouldn't have to worry about having to stop; I would still be in the same spot as I started.

I also want a couple more hand weights and a strength yoga tape.
