Moms of Many Exercise Challenge Weekly Fitness Goals (click button for more info)

Weekly Goal - 240 Minutes (40 minutes most days)
Total Weekly Minutes - 360 minutes

Annual Goal - 11,700 minutes
Minutes to Date - 4, 812 minutes

Weeeellllllllll, it happened again. Someone excitedly congratulated me on my new pregnancy. I am not pregnant. I have a churlish, hypothyroid, middle-aged body that is fluffy!!!!!! ::snort:: I guess I simply have to continue food journaling, the workouts the trainer mapped out, and add more ab work......I AM getting stronger. Why did the weight melt off at 2 lbs a week last year and refuse to budge this year?

I feel good about getting the whole weight thing in 3x this week. I feel good about maintaining 40 - 60 min of cardio while adding the weights. I feel good about spreading the time out over 5 days (which barely meets the most days of the week goal). ::snort::

I don't feel so good about the stubborn scale or the excited folks commenting on my false pregnancies.

Monday - 65 Minutes (45 minbike, 20 min lower body weights)

Tuesday - 85 Minutes (40 min ARC, 25 min bike, 20 min upper body weights)

Wed - 40 Minutes (35 min elliptical, 5 min abs & obliques)

Thursday - 80 minutes (40 min ARC, 40 min weights - all)

Saturday - 90 minutes (30 min ARC, 20 min bike, 40 min weights - all)

Oh, goodness, De'Etta. I hear you on the pregnancy comments. I'm afraid someone will say something like that to me, only they see our 5 month old in my arms.....but she's getting older!!! ;-)

As I told my husband tonight, "I can do what I can do and can't bring myself to sweat the rest." LoL
