My Biggest Loser Week

It's the middle of the week, and I'm having a blast! Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I've averaged 4 hours of serious exercise. This has included the stairs at Laguna Beach, treadmill on the highest incline, the stationary bike, walk/jogs all over my hilly neighborhood, weight training (of course), jumping rope, and calisthenics/body weight exercises. It's been fun to include LB, Wonder Girl and my girlfriends in my workouts. I do need to bring yoga back in though.

One of the interesting discoveries: learning what fuels my body best. Today, I stocked up on Young Thai coconuts. They do my body good! Superfood smoothies, green smoothies, salads of various types--interestingly, my appetite seems to have decreased. Perhaps I'm just too busy to focus on food as much. Most evenings, I'm satisfied with a liquid dinner.

Four days left. I'm going to continue to push and try to get at least one 6-hour exercise day. "What's the point?" you ask. Self-discovery!

Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. Now that my juice-feast is over, I'm hoping to incorporate more regular exercise. If I had a 6-hr workout day at this point I'd probably be dead. LOL! Self-discovery rocks!

Hey it's Wonder Woman! You amaze me. I gardened all day Sunday and I'm still suffering. It's all good though. I'm really impressed with you - WTG!

Well, don't be too impressed. It helps that I work from home, and have an obsessive (or is it compulsive?) nature. Now if I can just manage to figure out balance--workouts, laundry, child schlepping, actual work, writing, reading blogs...

I'm also trying to push my exercise time up to 2.5 - 3.5 hours (from 1-2 now). Not quite 6, but I totally would if I could! And for me really it is just for fun. I really like to be outside & moving, but hey, some more self discovery sounds awesome too!
