Start Of Week Two Of Challenge

Week Two on the January Challenge and All going to plan.

Today I got to gym a little later than usual as I got stuck in front of my computer reading everyone on my groups blog entry after the weekend, and left a comment.
It's really great that everyone is being so dedicated to this challenge, keeps me motivated as well to stick to it...and now planning for February's challenge for the ladies.

Losing weight is the main reason the women have joined my group
Most train but as its the New Year we all needed something to give us that push to get going again and from the response on group its working.

Today I went to gym at minus 3.5 degrees, very icy outdoors.
The gym was once again all smelly and closed up...not one window open which I find so hard when training as I sweat so much it becomes very uncomfortable.

Did 30 mins on the Elliptical as I planned
Then added the extra 15 mins I have set out for myself by running on the treadmill for 15 mins without walking in between like I did last week.
Oh yes, I also did 200 sit ups as this week I intend to do at least 100 daily.

Tomorrow its my treadmill day....
Want to try get out earlier tomorrow morning as the whole day is over if I only get going to gym at 11pm, then shower and have lunch...cant get much done after that and I still have my daughter here with me till Thursday so want to get out and about with her before she leaves.

Tomorrow I plan to run..
Walk One minute, run 5, for 45 mins...


  1. You're getting back at your fitness level more and more every day. You're doing great!

  2. Enjoy your time with your daughter! Great job on all of your workouts!

  3. I know what you mean about getting started too late! It ends up feeling like the entire day was taken up with your work out. I wish my gym opened earlier but it only opens at 9 am...usually I try to get in by 9.30 but sometimes reading blogs can be very addictive!

  4. I can't wait to see what challenge you bring to group for February. I'm a very curious person and is burning to hear what the February challenge is :)
    Just imagine how group is going to be like if all the ladies have lost the weight ... a group for fitness finatics - LOL! But that's the whole point, isn't it :)
    You're doing great on getting back into the fitness/exercise groove.

  5. I did it - got to the gym and did 50 minutes of cardio (treadmill and bike)....that's day 1!

  6. Great idea to go out for dinner together, as it was L.'s last evening it's good to make it special.
