Half Way

My weekly goal - the 5 times to the gym...I'm half way there.  Since I weigh myself every Friday, I start my gym week over again on Saturday morning.

Saturday:  Walk/Ran 2.25 miles in 35 minutes at the gym.  Then came home and spent an hour vacuuming.  I'm only counting this as exercise because I actually produced a sweat!  lol.  I was scrubbing the stairs with the comb attachment.  Then I was always moving with the 3 kids on Saturday.  A.L.W.A.Y.S.

Sunday: Day off

Monday:  Fitness test with the trainer & 2 miles in 30 minutes.  I haven't lost a whole bunch of weight.  But I'm more toned, have better balance and am definitely stronger. 

Tuesday:  1 hour strength training with trainer.  556 calories burned/22% fat in 65 minutes.  (smile)

I'm more than half way there to my 5 times.  My plan is to go tomorrow and try the treadmill.  I have a calf issue and I'm going to wrap it and see if it makes a difference.  Thursday will be my second day off.  Then Friday I'm going to do 30 minutes on the treadmill and my 30 minute kettlebell class.

It's a plan!


  1. Those are excellent workouts! I could take a page from your book!

    I have a kettlebell and want to take a class, but the gym near by does not have one. I might have to settle for a video.

  2. I really like the kettlebells. It's both cardio and weights at the same tme.

  3. Congrats on getting your workouts in!! :) Keep up the great work!
