Hey pals, post here what you did today to help you record the physical fitness goals you have. Sharing is caring! Maybe this can motivate others to stick with it.


Today I did 35 minutes of mild incline on a treadmill, then some curls and tricep extensions for about 15 minutes...had to be at work early so cut it short.

2.5 mi walk, I did not time it but I generally walk pretty fast. Timing is hard because I take my dog and I need to stop a couple of times to let her potty. She is a good walker, keeps a good pace.

Did some flat benching, managed to finally throw up 300lbs, which has been a goal for me for a long time, my shoulders are tore up and its real hard to move any significant weight with a barbell..

Cable Crossovers, hammer curls, pec flyes, etc..

No cardio will try to go tonight.

I haven't seen this until today or I would have been posting sooner. I just got off my stationary recumbent bike after 45 minutes. I recently joined a gym for the weight machines so I can tone my muscles (especially my weak upper body); the bike is really for the cardio workout. I worked out at the gym yesterday, so I'll be going back tomorrow. I usually try to do the bike for at least 30 minutes 4 -5 times a week.

Odoyal Rulez, you are working hard on your fitness so I'd imagine losing those 10 pounds should be no problem for you. Keep up the good work!

I was too busy to get to this thread last night, so this is for yesterday....I worked out at the gym for an hour. There are about 15 different machines that I rotate through, doing 3 sets of 10 - 12 reps on each. Combined they work a variety of muscles. Then I did 50 minutes on my exercise bike once I was home.

Last night I did 30 minutes on the weight machines and 35 on the nordic glider! Burned another 500 calories on the glider!

I have a cold today though so I may not go to my Zumba class tonight. I have to wait and see how I feel later!

I just did 30 minutes on my bike. Not much but at least I hit the minimum amount of time. I only did 30 because my husband was waiting for me to finish so we could go to the pool. Now, I hear thunder outside so I guess no pool for us. But...I'm done with the exercise today anyway.

Hi all, hope you don't mind if I join you.

I started workout #1 of the Couch Potato to 5K Program. About 1/2 hour of alternating walking and running.

Hopefully once I complete the program I'll be posting that I ran a 5k!

Welcome, RachieLnnn! How long does the program take to get you ready for a 5K? Good luck with it!

I didn't do the cardio yesterday, but I did get in an hour workout on the weights at the gym. Today I rode my stationary bike for 50 minutes. I really get the sweat flowing when I'm riding. I read when I ride so it doesn't seem so monotonous, plus it helps me look forward to riding because I know I will get some uninterrupted reading in which I love.

Thanks for the welcome! The program says it takes 9 weeks and anyone can find it by googling " Couch Potato to 5K." I have to say the first day was pretty easy, but it warns you not to skip ahead too fast and it really will build up your endurance.

I forgot to post that yesterday I also spent some time with handweights doing curls, tricep extensions, etc. as well as some lunges and crunches. I find doing this really helps me lose weight... instead of just cardio alone. Plus, I like the way my arms look! I want to get ready for a very pretty crusie formal dress for November.

For some reason, I have a problem getting to this thread on the day I actually do the exercise....

Yesterday, I did about 50 minutes on the weights at the gym, rode my bike for 40 minutes, and even got in a 20 minute walk with my husband and the dogs. We also hit the pool, but since all I did was float around, I can't count any exercise there. But, boy, did it feel good!
