I'm back from vacation (took all four days off from working out - really needed it). I got in a long walk this morning but am hoping to get in some more this afternoon so I'll hold off posting but I wanted to reply to the question about minutes.

The only thing that works for me is to consistently get up and out the door 90 minutes or so before my husband and teenager. If I can get out by 4:30 (used to be earlier but our new house is much closer to school/work), I can be back by 6:30. My teen leaves for school at 6:40 so I get a few minutes with her. After she leaves, I jump in the shower and start my day. I do work as an adjunct math professor but my classes are later in the day this semester and I don't need to be at work before mid morning. I generally run three times a week and walk the rest of the time. I need to to mix it up more and it's embarrassing how little strength training I do (okay usually none).

My sister has two little kids and a full time job and also lives in a big city where running/walking in the dark would not be a great idea. My insanity would never work for her or for most people. I'm really fortunate and I spend a lot of time on these crazy runs trying to remember that.

Thanks for sharing your routine with us. Your minutes and 4:30 wake up are inspirational! I'm sure my 9pm running habit wouldn't work for everyone either. That's why I love this exercise challenge thread- so many different and new ways to get in exercise!

Glad you had a good vacation!

An hour on the elliptical and an hour on the treadmill brings me to:

2100/2013

This is another period where my fitness club cancels all aerobic classes for 10 days for "Spring Break". It is pretty disappointing because the two universities in town have a different Spring Break and lots of schools have already had theirs, too. Many people don't even have kids in school. The bottom line is that most of us understand that some teachers would like to vacation, however, I wish they would still have a modified class instead of canceling all of them. My two favorite teachers would love to teach. One works at the university and has no children, and the other one is pregnant with her first and works a full-time job. We just had 2 weeks off at Christmas Anyway, can you tell that I had a less than stellar time on the elliptical?!? A gentleman got on the machine next to me and two minutes later decides to Skype and hold a very loud conversation. After a few glances his way and my inability to hear the TV through my headphones, I decided that he won and I should move. There are signs all over the gym prohibiting being on the phone while in the cardio & weight-lifting areas and asking people to go to the lobby or juice bar. GRRRR....some people are so clueless!! Sorry for the complaint I just had to get that off my chest and I know some of you can relate.

I just cannot understand what is wrong with people???? I would have been livid. And I don't know about your gym, but at my gym the staff are so 'nice' that they don't ever say anything to anyone. Hope your next gym visit is better!

10 mins so far today, but more later (I hope!)

We got up to drive to the gym before work and... the door was locked. I guess someone didn't make their shift? So we got creative at home and did body weight exercises on the hard wood floor. Ouch. But a good ten minutes and weights are a great way to start the day, I realized - you get a good burn, but without using a ton of energy. So that was something new that I learned! A bad thing -> a good thing.

So as a group we are at 74.89%... the next poster will put us into the teal zone at 75%!! Very exciting!!
