That sounds amazing. I've never enjoyed open water swimming, except for one particular spot where I had the pleasure of swimming off the coast of Australia. It was warm, clear, waves were managable... Ahhhhhh.. I'd love to go back some day!

Today, 30mins on the elliptical. Just realized last night my wedding is just a little over 3 months away. Holy crap! I hope I can meet my fitness goals by then!!

Good luck for the next three months!! What are you aiming to achieve by then?

There weren't sharks, as far as I knew, at the beach spot, but there was a "sighting" when were out at the reef and they made us get back on the boat. Boo! I went when I was 12 and I'd SO love to go back as an adult!

I'd like to lose another 10-15lbs and just generally lose some jigglies. I've already lost about 10 since I started about 8 weeks ago. I think I can do it. I just have to stay on track.

Where in VA are you?? I'm on the eastern shore. Good luck with your goals! Those last 10 pounds are the hardest. (At least, they are for me!)

I'm finding that losing weight is just HARD in general. I think because I tend to gain muscle really easily, I'm not seeing a lot of loss on the scale, which is frustrating. However, clothes are definitely fitting better/looser and my muscles are getting more defined. If I can just lose the chubby stuff OVER the muscle, I'll be thrilled!
Only a 45min walk today because that thing called Life got in the way :P
Yesterday was 1hr walk and 2+hrs salsa, so at least I got that in.

Going away this weekend (It's a long weekend in Aus, yay) so hopefully I can get some walking in but my hopes aren't high.

Biked 13 miles yesterday but didn't get a swim in because I couldn't find a swim buddy who swims at the same speed as me.

Rest day today!
1 hr walk, dragged my sister along with me.

I did the 3 mile Race For Life sponsored walk today. Or as I have been calling it, the Limp For Life because I'm still limping a bit.

I did it in 50 minutes. Yay!!!!!

I'm off work monday, thursday, friday and the weekend, so I intend to go to the gym and do some stuff there too.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
Yesterday I lifted and did 30 minutes on the stair-stepper. Today was an unintended rest day - decided to go to the beach instead! Tomorrow is spinning + power yoga.

Today was the usual 1 hr walk. Normally I'd be out dancing as well as gym, but both are not on because of the long weekend. One of the few downsides hehe.

Over the weekend: 30 min interval on the elliptical + abs, arms, back on Saturday; abs + 45min "repeat" program on the elliptical - this just about did me in! VERY Hard!

Monday AM: 30 min interval workout on the elliptical.

Results: 11lbs lost so far. I feel like my goal is in sight.
Last night I lifted (upper body) then did spinning for an hour. I skipped power yoga because I was just too buggered! This morning I swam 1/2 mile in the river and biked to work.
Tuesday AM: 30 min on the elliptical + arms, abs, and back.
One hour cardio broken down to this:

20mins cardio with 5 minutes being HIIT, 40seconds rest followed by 20seconds flat out

40mins on treadmill, starting at 3.1 mile per hour 0% incline for 15mins, 3.1 mile per hour 1.5% incline for 15minutes, 3.2 mile per hour 2% incline for 10 min.

I'm going back thursday till sunday alternating between cardio and weights so my body can rest.. My clothes are still feeling a bit tight, especially around my hips. I'm not used to that and it's got to change.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
Got up early (yay me!) and lifted pretty intensely then biked to work. My legs are going to be sore!

Like.Australia, 11lbs is awesome! You go!
30mins on the elliptical this AM.

Thanks, divegirl.
1 hr walk and 1 hr salsa yesterday.
Tuesday was a rest day, so I'm gonna have to keep it up the rest of the week now.
Unfortunately it's raining today hopefully it slacks off enough to get some walking in...

Ended up squeezing in a quick half-mile swim yesterday in addition to the lifting and biking to work.

I biked to work today too and will try to take the long way home to work off the blueberry muffins I had for breakfast (while watching the World Cup!). Tomorrow will be a rest day.
About 40 mins on the elliptical this AM. 30min program ended and I kept going.. not 100% sure how long though.
nice job keeping up with workouts and holding down the fort curlies!! I've still been getting some workouts in, did 30min eliptical and 1hr belly dance on Monday, 60min eliptical today and an hour of belly dance today.
