We've come a long way people!!! Give yourselves a round of applauds. I am personally inspired by everyone. I have worked out when I am sure that I would have forgotten. Our prayers are with those who had surgery. We look forward to seeing you back soon. Those who check in every week but never come into the discussion ( we know you're there) pop in when you're ready. It is wonderful how you all have started encouraging each other. I just smile and "like" and read on; you make me so proud of you. You all are awesome and you are important and healthier people. Yahhhhh!!!!! Don't stop, keep up the good work. :D

Good for you. That's why I did my step aerobics workout today…under the comfort of my AC! ;)

Somoca 2012-07-03 14:06:07 -0500 Report

Works for me. If this heat continues like this, I will be doing more inside workouts myself. Got me sweatin' like a Baptist preacher, LOL.

Barely made it. 4:30 alarm didn't sound, Awoke at 5:35, made it to the start line at 6/start of race/walk. Took me a little over an hour. But yeah I did it.

Congratulatioons! You are not in a cool part of the country; this must have been a real challenge.

For the most part the temp. stayed cool. But was sunnier than I had expected/was forecast. I wished I had brought a hat. I also really wished I had made it to the 5:15 warm up. Because I didn't stretch, I got a bad charlie horse. Had already been suffering with them prior. Thankfully my trainer had sympathy & RX suggestions. He was glad I did it, but disappointed that was the only other time I exercised this week. I had a tooth pulled on Mon. was popping Motrin, & not in the mood to work out. My lack of exercise consitency issue continues to plague me. It does seem like it's always something. Sick 2 weeks, lack of sleep the next, then the tooth pain this week. It does always seem to be some bad excuse. Sore today from training session, he worked my arms hard. and taking it easy on my charlie calf/thigh.

Can't believe how early I'll be out of the house tom. morning. Joining the City of Jurupa Valley's (The newest city in California) 1st Annual Walk/Jog/Run, warm ups at 5:15 am, race starts at 6:000 AM. OMG on a Sat. what was I thinking. Yes, the weather will stay nice and cool, but I hadn't noticed the start time until after I signed up.

Well people…Its Hot… No shame in taking it easy. Go at your own pace. I am going to take it easy today. 100 degrees is our forecast. Iam going to watch the young folks on the olympic trials and stay inspired:D

Young1s 2012-06-29 08:44:23 -0500 Report

Going to be about 90 for us.
I know what you mean about the trials. Been watching them myself. I feel a sense of pride already for who we have representing us.

I've been away for a while and I won't even lie. With the exception of walking to the store off and on, going to get my meds at the pharmacy and going to the clinic, I've had little to no exercise within the past 2 weeks. Will get back on the ball though.

Lizardfan 2012-06-28 23:30:11 -0500 Report

It is way too hot here to exercise. Stepping outside is like entering a pizza oven! My BP meds make it difficult for me to do very much in this heat so I opted out today.

It's Friday, I did it 5 days in a row Cardio every morning. Gotta say this morning the blankets felt pretty warm and relaxing. I will rest or maybe short walks! My legs are really sore! Have a great weekend everyone!

Somoca 2012-06-28 13:19:54 -0500 Report

At least 91 degrees today. I am working on my dance in the cool house. Pulled a hamstring from all of the steps, so I'm hoping to work on the rest of the body today. Tomorrow is suppose to be 101…not even going there tomorrow, LOLOL
