    42 minutes of HIIT today and 1 minute of plank and extra squats(I do them during the commercials) just cause I can. I didn't eat enough today so I need a bigger dinner to get to my minimum/maximum calories for the day. I might eat some extra protein.

    A question for the group...do you eat your workout calories back?

    Sometimes I do if I'm still hungry. It also depends how many calories I burned. If I burn over 300 I definitely eat some of it back.

    This was my first time to post a photo. If you can't figure it out, you can ask My Fitness Pal. They answered one of my questions.

    Yesterday (Friday ), I did a little over an hour's worth of gardening, pruning, removing dead shrub branches....this is stress relief for me too! I only stopped because it was getting too dark to see outside!!!
    Bring on day 3!!!!!

    Hi all, Jayme here. Just found your challenge and would love to join. I haven't been serious about losing the "last ten pounds," but doc told me this week that I need to reach it for medical reasons. Thanks for the motivating challenge.

    Got in nearly 4 hours of walking at the comic book convention today!!! It was stop and go, but it was movement, right? !!
  • pendennispendennis Posts: 117Member, Premium Member Posts: 117Member, Premium Member
    Yea! I got 30 minutes of HIIT and I did some strength with a tricep workout and plank sets. I feel a difference physically as my endurance has gone up....I can't wait to get rid of my "Big" clothes.

    Did 20 minutes of walking yesterday and today. It's hard to fit in exercise between 12 night shifts.
  • mikesmom1983mikesmom1983 Posts: 582Member Member Posts: 582Member Member
    In addition to the 16 minutes of elliptical yesterday, added walking and KettleBell for an additional 40 minutes.

    Good day to everyone and keep moving!

    I know how hard it is to fit exercise into a busy life, but it doesn't have to be just dedicated exercise. I know someone who does 10 squats whenever she goes to the Ladies room, it all adds up. Be creative, neck rolls or arm push-ups from your desk, extra trips to the Ladies room (because you are increasing your water intake), parking further away, using stairs, pelvic tilts while driving. Don't think of exercise as just something you dedicate an allotted time to.

    Good luck, you can do this!

    Raked the yard and weeded the garden for 3 hours today. It is nap time!
