    4/7 today with a 3.5 mile run with the group this morning. It was hot and humid but I survived! Hope to get a treadmill run in tomorrow before I head to the airport. Happy Saturday all!

    I took yesterday off from fitness but I'm sure I burned some cals with all of my cleaning, laundry and ALL the other domestic duties!
    So I ended the week 6/7.

    My 1/7 was LOADED!! 10 miles on bike, 3 miles on foot, JMBR and 325 reps!

    Back in Vegas....again! I wish my conferences would be in a different location!!! I did manage to get some exercise in before I flew out this afternoon. I ran 5 miles on the treadmill in honor of Blake's 5 month birthday today! Taking tomorrow off other than potentially walking around the strip some tomorrow evening, but will hopefully get some activity in on Tuesday.

    only a walk for me yesterday.. in the afternoon. I had a headache and tummy ache sneak in in me... still not feeling the best today.

    I think I am just tired from all the running around I have been doing. My son contracted a bacteria skin infection from football ( he ripped his elbow open during a game... 3 days later.. he was infected on most of the right side of his body!.. We were at the doctors late Tuesday... he looks better today... but open wounds like that scare me... with having to send him to school. I have spent a small fortune in bandages and wraps this week!

    Debra, I hope you get to feeling better. I have been tired too. This week has seemed VERY long at work!

    My 5/7 was HEAVY lifting at work for 90 minutes and a 35 minute walk with the furries!!!

    Back from Vegas! I didn't manage to get any official workouts in while I was there due to the long hours and the fact that they charged $22 PER DAY to use the fitness center!!! So I'm just now 2/5 today with a quick 2.5 mile run on treadmill. I've got my running group tomorrow so I'm looking forward to that.

    Keep up the fab work ladies! And Debra I like the new pic, very cute!

    Welcome back home Heather! That is CRAZY for what they charge on the fitness center. I have stayed in Reno's casino hotels and some charge nothing and the other was 25 bucks! I take workout dvd's & use my lap top or hope they supply dvd players.

    My 6/7 workout was 300 core reps & a walk pushing my GS in the jogger. Not real aerobic but it was all I felt like putting out tonite.

    Have a wonderful weekend ladies!!!

    3/7 with a 3.4 mile run with my running group run today--we did hills again and it is definitely getting easier. I need to do more cross training so I've ordered Jillian Michael's 6 wk 6 pack DVD--my little sister did it and liked the results she got, so I figure it is worth a shot a couple days each week.

    Hope you guys are having a great weekend!!

    Good luck with your new workout Heather... I am sure you will do great... you put me to shame... with your travel and new baby ...family...doctor rounds and still fitting in exercise! :drinker: :drinker: :drinker: You're awesome!
    Verda.... I really would love to be more like you with your constant disipline... you're tough as nails!!!! :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou:

    Take time for YOU Debra cause it seems like no matter what there is ALWAYS more wanted or needed from you!!!

    Way to go Heather on adding in conditioning to your running. I sure do love Jillians Body Rev. Not so much when she's kicking my @ss but when it is over!!:laugh:

    I ended last week with taking Sat. off from fitness but I did get in an hr from unloading our co-op fruit/veg truck. I worked up a sweat too. 6/7

    This week was 1/7 with JMBR & 30 minutes of Sprinting/Walking for 30 minutes and today 2/7 was a repeat of yesterday.

    Oh my, what a week!!! I'm only 1/7 for the week with a workout with my running group tonight. We did high intensity interval training with sprints alternating with walking. Man, the sprints were tough, but I survived. I will be glad when this week is over. Hope you guys are having a good one! :)

    Oh Heather I feel your pain on the sprints!!! I did sprint for a minute/ walk very fast for a minute on Sunday & Mondays cardio. I thought a couple of times I wasn't going to get enough oxygen!!! My bronchial breathing has been sorta bad during exercise so it was tuff!!! I did a jog last night to give myself a break. But way to go for PUSHING through!!! You are sooo dang busy and squeezing in fitness I know must be hard, but you are doing great!!!


    My 4/5 was 37 minutes of JMBR & a 45 minute walk!!! I did NOT eat a healthy breakfast or lunch so I quit eating after 3. Just drank my water!!! I was full, felt miserable from the food choices and not hungry so I skipped eating again!!
