25 days in On Streak

Hi all!

Did some exercises today and clenched 25 days of exercise streak. Didn’t push too hard today but put 24 total minutes in between some pedalling and arm work with the Total Gym. I am up to 35 pull ups now with the wing bars. 30 was rough last week, so I am slowly getting stronger!

I also got my weekly tally from MyFitnessPal. Figured I’d share that again.

I also came across a picture I figured I’d share. I don’t know the origin of the picture but I did not take it, nor do I claim to own it.

I’m down 6.8lbs so probably at least 5lbs of pure fat. It’s a small piece of the puzzle but every piece adds to the full picture.

I’ll check in here at least once more before my trip Friday. I plan to video at least some of that day. Hoping to get miles of walking done 🙂

Keep it going,


Weighing In On It

Hi there!

Saturday is here and the weigh in has happened. The verdict is in.

Drumroll …


So, there is most of the loss at least. Still holding onto to some water weight, I’m sure.

It is always great to see hard work paying off.

My knees feel almost normal today so I may venture out and try another walk. If not, I’ll hit the Total Gym extra hard.

It’s a beautiful day here. I hope it’s a lovely wherever you’re reading this from.

It Can be Hard but I Keep Pushing

So, the knees are again stiff and mildly painful. That means I didn’t get my walk in today, but I did work the legs on level one on the Total Gym to make sure they got exercise today. I also did a few minutes of pull ups as well. So that means I have now gotten 23 days of exercise in this streak!

I celebrate small victories and exercising with these knees stiff is definitely one of those.

If my knees feel better I will make up my walk tomorrow. My last walk I pushed just a tiny bit further and got to 0.57 of a mile. My trip is only 1 week away. I think I’ll do ok as long as the knees cooperate. I have a wagon and we are bringing some pop out chairs in case I need to suddenly sit. I guarantee this trip will be the most walking I will have done in at least 5 months. I will be charting walking distance and likely record at least some of the trip.

Weigh in day tomorrow. Let’s hope the knees don’t sway the scale much.

Fingers crossed.

Yes, They Call Me The Streak!!

Definitely not the fastest thing on two feet.

But I’m setting my news, rarely wearing tennis shoes and I am quite unique.

(If you don’t get my reference there search the Streak and listen to it)

Yes I made it to 20 days of Exercise in a row.

I also moved up to level 4 on my legs on the total gym today. Definitely could feel a bit of difference but I pressed on and put my 11 minutes in there, the two minutes of the core exercise (no longer sore), and then about 12 minutes of arms. (I did 30 pull-ups. Woo the arms were begging me to stop for sure. )

Still doing well cycling the calories and feeling hopeful for the scale in 4 days.

Keep it going,

Headache and Updates

Hi all! Been dealing with a headache on and off the last two days. Still stuck to my calorie limits and exercise goals. I did some outside chores and some of my dance-aerobics yesterday. I plan to take a walk and do some total gym work. Probably still going to skip the core focus. The abs are still a little sore. The muscles can’t repair or build while still being used.

Anywho, here are my stats for last week if interested:

The weekend was overall ok. The temps are down and it’s nice out, but the little town we live in tries to act like an HOA about grass or weeds. The picky behavior of the city council is the most annoying thing about living here. But the chores were more exercise, so there’s that. We’ll get it all done up ASAP.

Keep it going,
