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

Moms of Many - Exercise challenge!

(My laptop died this a.m. pray for it and for my attitude! I'm ready to skillet something - maybe a few computers). I managed to grab one of the children's computers to graphic. LOL

I did make it to the gym 5 times last week! Yes. That qualifies as "most days of the week". I did 60 min each day.....and really pushed for lots of calories burned on most of those days. That translates to 40 min on the ARC and 20 on the bike instead of the other way around. ::snort::

I've started charting my exercise/food intake using a points system and spreadsheet sent by Diane, a friend. It does the same thing as my food journal but I was tired of the time it took to notebook, the sameness and the reams of paper - a page a day. This worked well. It certainly made me conscious of being sure to eat 6 small meals a day. LOL I lost 2 lbs this week...of course they are the two I gained the week before but hey - they are gone. LOL I need to switch things up now and again to fight boredom.

On with a new week. To hear from more participants go here (I'll post this week's link when it is up). LOL

Great job, De'Etta. You amaze me with your dedication.

I also found when I was doing WW, that I had to mix it up and have a heavy eating week once in while. I'm not sure why, but it helped me to keep moving.

Keep up the good work.

I think we get bored and then lax. LOL Mixing it up and counting points is making more aware of what I ingest again.....the food journal/calorie counting had become routine....and when I can do it without thinking I most often revert to not eating and/or snacking instead of well-spaced meals. LOL

So much for this week's link! ;-) Two birthdays in one week has done me in. Now my boys are 13 and 8. sigh.

I'll be back on track next week!
