Three Weeks of Moving That Hiney

I was about to sum up this past week when I realized I have been exercising more consistently for three weeks now. It has helped alot that we had holidays and I took some time off at work, so I had more time to get to the gym. I’m hoping I have enough momentum now to keep it going since my regular schedule starts up again on Tuesday.

12/27/09-1/2/10 Four trips to the gym. Each one was: 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer, 30 minutes on the stationary bike and 30 situps.

1/3/10-1/9/10 Ok, not so consistent. In my defense that was the week of the snowstorm but I could have worked out at home. Two trips to the gym. The first was 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer and 30 minutes on the bike. The second was 90 minutes on the elliptical trainer.

1/10/10-1/16/10 Superstar! Five gym visits. Three were 1 hour on the elliptical, run ½ mile, and 40 situps. The fourth was the same, minus the running. The fifth, yesterday… well I had to talk myself into going to the gym (J was laughing at me, apparently I was talking myself into it out loud), then talk myself out of the car when I got there. I did 20 not-very-hardcore minutes on the bike and left.

Today is the beginning of the fourth week and I was a rock star! I did an hour on the elliptical, then ran a mile on the treadmill before my 40 situps. I walked out to imaginary applause and an imaginary standing ovation.

I’ll leave you with a few pictures I took the day before yesterday. We’ve had some fog, then freezing. The result was frost outlining pine needles and naked tree branches, making everything look magical.

LOL I thought I was the only one who did that imaginary standing ovation thing. :)

Great job on consistent workouts! I've learned that's as important as what you do there, perhaps even moreso!
