Hope you don't mind if I post in here too but I get a bit slack with my workouts sometimes...so here goes so far...

Walk - about 40mins all up

Right now going to do:

Circuit - http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art48437.asp

Then drink my very first protein shake (which will require me to walk to the corner shop to buy skim milk).

Ok...here I go!

Update...

I also danced around my room like an idiot for a bit of a warm up, did the boot camp thing (which kicked my butt...still sweating like a pig), then did a Winsor Pilates upper body DVD.

Whoever said men sweat and women perspire never watched this woman exercise...sheesh!

WOW you guys do so much exercise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is so awesome!!!!! Don't I feel slack....

I walk to and from the bus every day... thats it really. Hubby and I bought a $2000 cross trainer 2 months ago. It is a fabulous digital, gym style one..... ummm I have used it for a total of 5 minutes....

I might be motivated with food but not exercise! I am going to go home tonight and do 10 minutes on the cross trainer.... then some crunches!

PS No excuse I guess but time is not on my side... I leave home at 7am to catch the bus into the city, work and get home at 7pm! I am always too exhausted to exercise :(

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!!!! I just ran 4kms. Took me about 30mins but still I have never ever jogged before! I feel like $hit now but still I can't believe I ran that far non-stop. I have never done anything like it before, I have always been too afraid to job before.

Mind you the cold air has ripped the stuffing out of my lungs and they hurt like hell now but gee.....I just can't believe it!!

well done vanessa! what an accomplishment! i hope you warmed up and cooled down so you arent too sore from it tomorrow. i read today from the trainer who trained adro and chris from the biggest loser:

my advice overall: If you're after fast results, run. Long term though you are better off having a balance between cardio and weights

but running is great :)

Wow Kate, I didn't know that but now I have done it I plan to do it every time I hit the treadmill or go for a walk outside like today! I felt so powerful! I have never been able to run, always too fat and awkward. Even when I started my journey and was walking 6km a day, I couldn't run further than white guide post to the next one, about 20 metres! I felt pretty disgusting and so was happy just to walk fast. I also never wanted anyone to see me run, stopping and starting, red faced and out of breath, really struggling holding my side with a stitch, too embarrassing!! So I was too scared to even try even though I knew my fitness level was much improved but today I felt like such a fat slug, not going to the gym and eating too much (bloody nuts I tell you, my undoing!) I decided to just try, and just to keep going, every time I wanted to stop, I told myself keep going, you're not in pain (and I wasn't, no stitch at all), you're doing great, keep going. The only thing that was painful was the very very cold air in my lungs.....that hurt and I coughed and coughed when I got back..lol. I know my hips will hurt tomorrow, but I don't care it was worth it!!!

mattocking tussock 90min (involves lifting 5kg, swinging over head, pushing against resistance, squatting, pulling against resistance, 2-20 steps and repeat x100)

tomorrow I am doing a 40k bike ride, and cannot wait - yippeeeeee
