I got my weighted hula hoop. It's a Danskin, and it snapped together easily. The first day I couldn't keep it up more than a turn or two. Yesterday I was able to go for a couple of minutes at a time. So far no bruises or soreness, so I'm happy about that. I've done a few minutes today, and will try for a few more later. Strangely enough, I don't get tired in my legs or hips or core - my arms get tired having to hold them up out of the way! I guess that means they're getting a workout too (and are weak and need work, which I already knew!) It's fun!

I got dressed and went to the gym last night, stood in line for my class for 1/2 an hour only to be informed that class was cancelled. I logged it as 50 calories burned.

You guys inspired me to get off my booty! I actually changed into running clothes when I got home, then proceeded to dink around for hours. I ended up going after I put the monkey to bed. My plan was derailed by a friend calling as her horse had a fever so I talked to her for 20 minute but did a brisk walk. Then I did some 5x30 second sprints with 60 second recovery. 5 minute cool off, and some flow yoga in my yard. Its kinda hard to focus on balancing poses with Lady Gaga screaming in your ears!
Anyway, I'm totally on board with the hula hooping thing. I got a weighted one with bumps/scallops on the inside, my friend ordered it for me from WalMart. Its really nice and I can keep it up on a good round for about 30-45 seconds. I'm hoping to get better.
This is a good place to stay accountable. My 1/2 marathon in Vancouver is in 85 days and I really really really really want to finish in under 2:30. I've been afraid to exercise too much because I don't want to stall the scale but I can't put it off much longer, reach my goal and not injure myself on the run.
Off to shower & bed!! Night all!!!

Good for you Jen! It sounds like you may have gotten the same hula hoop as I got. So far I'm loving it! I can only do it for a couple of minutes at a time, but if I do it several times a day, hopefully it'll add up. It really is amazing how many muscle groups it works. I haven't watched the DVD that came with it yet. Tomorrow I will. 'Night!

The hula hoops are going strong - sounds terrific! My dd was hula hooping last evening. She does hang hers up on the wall, although we've heard that's not good for them. Hopefully, hers is up and down enough not to be a problem. I think the favored storage is under a bed, flat.

I got in a few minutes of hula hooping this morning, along with an upper body/weight workout this afternoon. Interesting about the storage of the hoop, Whitlin'. I've been keeping mine leaning up against a wall. I won't do that long term, but wanted it out where it would remind me to do it. Once it's routine, I can find it a better home.

I agree, Jen, your new avi is great. You really look trim and what an hourglass you have!

Thanks ladies! Please believe me when I tell you the side view is not nearly as attractive.
Those shorts are a Lululemon exclusive design & pattern that they gave to all the participants running their inaugural SeaWheeze 1/2 marathon in Vancouver last year. I HATED them when I received them about a year ago - lots of people were really unhappy because, lets face it, short white shorts look pretty awful unless you're 5'10" & a size 2. They got a lot of really negative feedback on them & this particular pair was shoved to the back of my closet. I don't know what made me pull them out last night but I put them on and thought - you know, these aren't too bad 30# lighter!
The ones for this year should be on their way soon & they're super cute. When I get them, I'll post a picture!
On a separate note, no exercise for me today. Instead I decided to nail my horse's shoe back on, we had an argument about whether I got to hold his foot and I'd say he won. Since, at the time, he had yet-to-be-clinched, very sharp nails sticking out of his foot which then ripped quite a lovely hole in my hand, I'm calling his a complete victory. Although maybe not, I did manage to finish the shoe once I stopped the bleeding. Grrr...getting stitches & a tetanus booster tomorrow. Dang it!

Take care of that hand, girlie! I've been stepped on a time or two while picking hooves, though never with nails sticking out, but I feel your pain.

5 stitches this morning. I went to work & had my technician do it. She is a way better suterer than most ER docs & now I won't feel the need to take them out & re-do it. Took some old pain meds but those always make me nauseous so not feeling 100% at the moment.
Dawn, I'm sorry about your Dad & the associated stresses there. Take care of yourself. Hugs to you.

I hooped this morning while I was watching Alaska State Troopers. I made it from the start of a commercial break all the way thru that set of commercials, the following segment of show and into the next set of commercials. I was tickled pink. That was the longest I have been able to keep it going. Well then.....I was feeling a little cocky and started trying to turn all the way around and keep the hoop going. I was great to the left...not so much to the right. The sides of my hands are getting tougher and I can roll the hoop in circles for longer periods also. With the weighted hoop, my arms could really feel it. Hope all you other hoopers are enjoying it as much as I am!!

I'm experimenting with fasting High Intensity Interval Training. It's supposed to be great for fitness and fat burning, especially if you do it fasting, and you can do it for less time than other workouts. I did treadmill for 30 mins. on 3-3.5 mph for most of the time, and then at every 5 minute mark I increased the incline to 6 and the speed to 6 mph for 30 seconds. Just experimenting with this. I love my aerobics classes but like the idea of increasing metabolism with this. If you haven't heard of it, you can google HIIT for some good info.

p.s. I also got some whey protein powder for after fasting workouts because it's supposed to be important for recovery/retaining muscle.

We are staying with my aunt and uncle on their houseboat while we're in Oregon. My exercise consists of walking to and from the parking lot. It's a bit of a trek up and down steep ramps. That's all I've managed the last few days. :-)

Christina, best wishes on the high intensity intervals. Let us know how you feel about it!

Putz you are really building your stamina (or is it dexterity?) I have a hard time turning around, too, but my dd does it well after all her practice.

I was reading the NSV thread and saw several from the exercising posters that were so inspiring.

Christina, which whey protein powder did you get? I bought the Jay Robb again recently, which is expensive, but it is sweetened naturally so I guess it's worth it.

Jen, I hope your injury doesn't sideline you from marathon training much longer. I was thinking that it might throb when you run, for a while at least.

I got Bodylogix, also naturally sweetened, and very tasty. I thought it was on sale, but when I got to the register found out it was the one next to it that was on sale, so yeah, it was on the pricey side, but I really like it... it tastes like a treat. They also had a shaker ... it's like a big plastic container with a lid that has a wire metal ball in it. You can put the powder and water in and shake, and it turns out great, no blender! Then you can drink it right from the shaker.

So far so good with the HIIT. It feels like a lot of workout in a short time which is always a plus. I'll keep you posted.

Oh, that's right Christina you're one of our teachers, so you're about to have a schedule change. Best wishes on a happy healthy summer. I have one of those funny shakers - they do work well, and it all goes right through the dishwasher. At least the protein powder, even if it's expensive, lasts a long time! I'll remember the Bodylogix has a good taste.

I was lazy the last couple of weeks, so I haven't been checking in.

My battery on my HRM died on Tuesday, so I had to replace it. I then realized I haven't changed my stats for about 25 pounds, so everything's updated now. My calorie burn got lower because of my lower weight.

Tuesday, I went to the gym and walked on the treadmill. I did the random hills setting for 20 minutes, then did just some easy walking, then did the fitness test (I had to enter my age, gender, and weight). It told me my fitness level is "superior." Ha! 248 calories in 45 minutes.

Wednesday, I went to Zumba. It was a new instructor, and I never have a good burn when I'm having to learn new choreography. 314 calories in an hour. Meh.

Today, I plan on going to a new class at the gym. Fiesta Cardio Jam. I have no idea what it is, but my favorite Zumba instructor is teaching it, so I'm thinking it will incorporate some sort of latin dance.

Probably won't get back to it before leaving for Florida next week either...

Oh well... I'll get some walking done on vacation, just by default - I think we're going to the Universal parks. And I plan to start back on the C25k running plan when we get back!
