I have been enjoying a surge in my energy and am commited to taking advantage of my part time status to invest more in my health and exercise.  I am hoping for a great comeback in 2009!

Today I did 30 minutes each on the elliptical and stair master, and then did some arm weights.

I need to bust out my Wii fit, but my ankles and knees are still favoring the low-impact of the machines...

I did 20 minutes in total today (which is a big improvement over the nothing I've been doing otherwise).  I did 5 minutes on elliptical, and spent the rest on floor exercises, stretches, jogging place and arm weights.

Just got back from the rec center myself.  Walked on treadmill at 2.5 mph to warm up for 5 minutes.  After that started regular treadmill workout of walking for 4 minutes at 3.5 and jogging for 1.5 minutes at 4.6 mph (was 4.5 on Monday), I alternate in this fashion until I reach the distance that I have set in mind for myself.  This week that is 4.25 miles total.  On the sixth run cycle I started to have some pain in the back of my knee...so decided to listen to my body and that was the last run cycle.  Finished off the rest of the 4.25 miles by walking at 3.7 mph to try to make up for it a bit.  Cool down walk for 5 minutes after that at 2.5 mph again for 5 minutes, 10 minutes of general stretching, and 3 of the planks described in today's post at 30-second holds each.  Whew!  I feel good though....except that knee.  Gonna soak in a hot tub again like I did on Friday here in a minute.

Lucinda, you could try some epsom salts in your bath water - might help the knee.  

I logged 9550 steps (right at 4 miles) today.  Work projects even provided some stretching and a bit of "strength training".

Great post!!!

Today I did 20 minutes of non-stop intense cardio and strength training and abs.

Then I went to two stores, with two small children, and ran around (hey, it counts!). I didn't park far away, though. I didn't really think about it until this moment. I try to always park near a cart return so I don't leave my kids in the car.

I cleaned a LOT today and while that doesn't burn as many calories I've been moving more!

When I do the dishes (we have no dishwasher so it's all by hand) I stand there and do ballet leg strengthening and butt toning exercises.

Oh, and I have to add that I always dance and jump around with the girlies. They seem to think it's funny when Mommy is "dancing".

Another funny thing- while I was doing my 20-minute workout my sweet baby girl (she's 21 months old) got on the mat and was intensely watching the trainer on the video. She was actually doing a really good job mimicking the trainer, too! It made me feel good, to SHOW them that exercise is important.
