Boy I skipped one day and look what I missed.  misswim, way to go on the free handstand!  Claire, congrats on the milestone!  Adey, 3 miles, wow.  Ruth, consistent as ever with the Firm DVDs.  Badger, 24,000 posts, w00t!

I walked in the rain yesterday for about an hour and a half.  Didn't think I'd gone that long but I guess I was slowed down by avoiding puddles.  Tonight I did some hula hoop practice and will be doing another walk with the hubby later.  He got inspired to get new shoes like I did so I'm hoping he may start walking a bit further with me.  I don't mind walking alone but I like to see him spending more time exercising and less time sitting in a chair.

Hi! Busy day. Managed to get in lots of exercise along with everything else, but went to a Christmas party tonight, so no doubt regained any weight lost earlier.

Mary, I would love to see Denard. Along with everything else, he has a very cool name! Smile

Yay, Adey! That's a big milestone.

Need to lose some weight before a Christmas party this coming Saturday. I will have to spend more time at the gym or out in the snow.

Zumba yesterday, including a number incorporating Gangnam Style. So much fun.

good evening/good morning ladies!  Did the Jingle Bell 5k walk in 51:16 this morning, pretty slow time but that's OK.  There were lots of walkers which I was glad to see.  Next year, I will wear my reindeer antlers! 

Walked there and back so logged 7.01 km = 4.36 miles for the day.

Yeah, lots of posts from back when I was gaming a lot, steroid buzz or sleepless nights etc.  Kind of crazy but there are several of us here over 20K posts so I'm in good company.

Adey, congrats on running 3 miles.

Claire & misswim, love the new avatar pix.

Mary & Ruth, you guys pick the weekend, based on the baseball schedule, and I'll be there!

Keep up the good work everyone!

8 mile run, nice out, temp in the 30's with a light dusting of snow.  Supposed to get up into the 50's later and that will be nice because I'm taking my 2 nieces and their babies (boy age 4, boy age 2, girl age 2) for "Breakfast with Santa" at the barn where I ride.  We went last year, it's a great breakfast buffet, everything home cooked, and they get to have their pictures taken with Santa and on the ponies, then they get to do a lot of running around outside and on the trails in the woods in the fresh air.  Can't beat that!

Have a great day, everyone . . .

5 mile run in prep for the Jingle all the Way 8K in DC next weekend.  It was a good run - beautiful day around 50 degrees - but I'm tired! I'm usually more of a 5K girl, so I wanted to make sure I could handle the longer distance.  Now I need to stop at Five Below and pick up some antlers or something to wear next week.  Tongue Out

Adey - I can't tell you how impressed I am with your running 3 miles.  You started that C25K program and just kept plugging away.  I know a couple of times you had medical setbacks, but you just picked yourself up, dusted yourself off, and started all over again.  And now you did it - congrats!!!!  You must feel great for doing it!

Badger - good for you for walking the 5K so soon after surgery - you rock!  Thanks for the antler suggestion!

Good morning-

Rather sedentary weekend; we had an incredible rainstorm that left our town with over 6" of rain.  Today I'm up and at 'em; going off to spin!  My weight has been creeping up, so this week I am going to be in 'cleansing' mode-lots of water, green leaves, fruit, and good protein.  It's a busy week ahead and that's just the way I like it.

I think that hitting the workout first thing in the morning is essential for me.  I am so prone to blowing it off later in the day!

Have a good Monday fellow LPODE's ("let's post our daily exercisers"!)

45 minute My Fitness Coach flexibility workout this morning- back is a bit stiff from all the raking and the long run yesterday, and when I got into triangle pose, I couldn't get out!!  Finally eased out of it, but geez did I feel old.  Been doing some gentle stretching ever since to stretch it out. 

Follow up opthamologist appt this morning for the retinal hole and dry eye.  Now I have one eye dialated - try working on a computer that way.  Undecided  Hopefully the drops will wear off soon.  But the hole in the retina is stable, so I don't have to see her for a year unless I get symptoms of a retinal tear. 

Playing hookey tomorrow to take a senior center trip to the White House to see all the holiday decorations.  Dh and I did that last year, and it's beautiful.  Going with a good friend this year and can't wait.  She's going through rough times (her mom is in hospice from kidney cancer) so it'll be a a nice chance to relax with her and gab all day. 

Kim - I've been thinking of you with all those storms out there!  Keep dry and safe.  I agree about having to do morning workouts - I hate to get up in the morning, but I finally figured out that I have to just bite the bullet and get up early to do my workouts in the morning, or else I just don't do it later in the day.  Badger - like the "bells on my toes" idea!

Love all these posts ... made me feel lazy this weekend but I'm on it this week!  My youngest son (19 years) has a "to do" list for this afternoon.  He is to get our Treadmill back in working order (it has been folded up and moved in the basement).  So I am so looking forward to getting home and getting back on it!  Have the iPod all ready!  

I had my mastectomy on 10/12 with immediate placement of TE.  Couldn't have imagined walking and working out (bouncing) before I had a few fills.  Then I contracted a confirmed case of Influenza type A ... actually the whole school office where I work did too!  Was down and out for almost 2 weeks.  Not making excuses just explaining myself.  So today is officially day 1 of getting back in shape!  I am "filled to capacity" and just waiting for my exchange surgery which should be sometime in early February.

I'm looking for any Treadmill workouts if anyone has any!  

Look for my posts because I really feel that making myself accountable to all of you will motivate me to start and stay on track!

Thanks in advance for your continued inspiration!  Have an awesome week!

I'm so bummed ... the treadmill is DOA!  The tread is moving but not up to speed.  Hopefully the hubby can fix it tomorrow.  Trying not to get discouraged ... don't have the money to be buying a new one with the holidays and everything that comes with another surgery in another calendar year.  I might have to move outside but getting home after it is already dark and not having sidewalks in my town makes the simple walk workout dangerous.  Maybe someone in the family has a working one that is just collecting dust.  Making some calls in the morning.

On the topic of reflective clothing.  I wear a cycling shell in Supernova yellow with reflective strips on top of this. You really need this in the low Northern daylight this time of year.  Plus, it keeps the rain out, another important point recently.

The jacket in the atavar photo also is reflective.  So I think worth the investment to be seen.

Just a short walk today on top of my weights/crunches.  On the other hand, my brain got a major workout.

Walked on the treadmill for an hour & did 15 minutes of random toning.

Move, could you check a sports equipment store that sells 'nearly new' equipment? Or rummage or estate sales? Or, do you have someone you know who is handy? Our treadmill was not working right, and a friend who does lots of home projects came over and looked at it. It needed a new motor (which cost $20 plus shipping) and he put it in for free (we will return the favor sooner or later). You need to be safe, have an exercise plan that fits into your schedule, and if you use a treadmill, you need one that works right or else it is hard on your knees etc.
