I went to yoga today, which was fantastic! Hard, but good. And the night before I went to the gym and then had a swim.

I have been exercising nearly every day!!

Today I surprised myself by getting up early enough to attend the noon "aerobic dancing" class...

Yesterday I did a shoot exercise and half of Capoeira...
Half, because they were going to make us do a handstand so I walked out...!! Has anyone ever tried capoeira? It is a Brazillian dance/acrobat thingy... it was the second lesson for me, on the first one they made us do cartwheeling... well I managed that though it was a bit scary I haven't done that for 15 years, well there is a limit to things... handstand, no!! Probably they will make us do backflip on the next lesson... I am afraid someone will be dead sooner or later in these lessons!!
I bet Cameron and Grace would excel on this thing though..

I didn't go today. Curves closes at 11:30 here on Saturday and I really needed to get at my flower beds. I wanted to put out some plants, but started cleaning the beds and couldn't quit. They look better - but with no new plants. But I had a heck of a backache when I finished and sat in the tub for about an hour. Today if the first day I've missed since I started.

Gardening counts as exercise. I bet you burnt more calories doing that than you would have done at Curves!!!!

I walked to the farmers market and back, in the snow!!! Snow!!! in March!!!! The fishmonger and I were singing Christmas carols!!!

I have been VERY BAD and have done little exercising since this killer project I'm on went into overdrive in January. Got on the scale this morning and naturally I have gained back most of the weight I lost working at stand-on-my-feet-jobs and faithfully working out at Curves ( as opposed to the current sit-at-a-computer job where there is food and snacks of all kinds around all the time).

Don't say it - I know who's fault it is! Fortunately the weather is getting much nicer so it will be easier to get out and at least walk for 30 minutes now - if I'm not shackled to the computer when I get home too.

As Mr. Darcy said in "Pride and Prejudice", "I will conquer this."

I am an IFA certified aerobics instructor and personal trainer, certified sports nutritionist, and certified Senior Fitness Instructor. I perform 30 to 45 minutes of cardio six days a week, and perform an additional hour of weight lifting three times a week.

I haven't done any of that since Monday though, because I am doing my spring cleaning, and moving all my (mostly solid oak) furniture from room to room so I can steam clean the carpet has been more strenuous than any of my gym workouts.

I have only lost 7 pounds since I started my regimen the middle of January, but I feel so much better - more stamina, less pain, more energy. My body just feels better. I think I will have to pay more attention to portion control than in the past so perhaps more weight will come off. I've only missed one day since I started and that was to do some much needed gardening. I haven't used my personal training sessions yet. I want to get a little stronger in the water before I start that. My gd, gs and I are walking a trail near the beach this afternoon and that should be fun and healthy.

Way too many pages to find what I might have written months (years?) ago. I have a class on Monday similar to the "Firm" tapes. Weds is pilates with a little yoga tossed in. Friday is a half hour of step, half hour of ball. Then I walk anywhere I need to go that is under a mile -- and our town is vertical. I also walk to the gym Monday and Weds (3/4 mile each way). I find that getting out and walking is the most important part for emotional well being, especially in the winter. Even if the weather is gloomy, you still need those rays for your mental health. Today I fell down on the job. I had a doctor's appt for my ears, and I was warned that I might be dizzy, so I didn't get to the gym. I have to say, though, that I miss Jazzercise -- the dancing was such fun. I try to get to the gym for weight lifting whenever I miss a day of exercise class (often more wishful thinking than reality). All my exercise classes use weights, but I like to lift some heavier weights once a week or so.
