Day One

So today begins Day 1 of my February Exercise Challenge to myself. I'm pretty sure I can do 600 minutes of exercise in February. It has to be intentional exercise. Like I'm not going to paint and then say that counts as exercise. Cuz that's just lame.

Today I did a 45 minute walk (about 3 miles) at lunch, and I did a 20 minute Boot Camp workout video. That takes me to 65 minutes of exercise for the day.

As for food, I stayed within my 1,500 daily calorie allotment.

All in all, it was a good day because I stayed within my calories and hit my exercise target. We'll see if this has any relationship to my weight in February!

I found a good deal on Target brand Up & Up diapers. It was only available online. I bought 4 boxes, and we will see if these things ever ship. That's my problem with Target Online. I buy stuff, and it NEVER ships. I'm not even making it up. I've put in 4 different orders over the last 2 years, and I only successfully received one of them. The others I get so fed up waiting for it to ship that I end up canceling. We'll see if this cool diaper deal ends up being the same way. I'd prefer to go to the store vs. waiting for 2 months to get my dang diapers. But I'm cheap, so I'll wait some time (as long at it's a reasonable amount of time) to get them.

Isn't it funny how some online stores ship so quickly and some take forever?

Have you used the Up&Up diapers? Are they different than the regular Target diapers? I tried the target diapers one time. Worst diapers ever. No elastic in the back at all. I apologized to daycare and promised never to buy them again. I like (the dreaded)Walmart diapers, Kroger diapers and Publix diapers. But I won't buy Target diapers again. Target is supposed to be a higher quality store than walmart, so I was really disappointed in their diapers :( Mostly, I end up buying Huggies. They put out tons of coupons and I catch them on sale and end up paying less for them than the store brands. Why am I rambling about diapers on your blog? Sorry! I hope you get your shipment soon. I don't think I've ever ordered from Target online....????
You are seriously motivating me here with all your exercise. I am ALMOST ready to actually do some walking. In fact, if it weren't raining today, I would do a hospital round. Maybe tomorrow....
Keep up the hard work!! (WHEN do you find time to do it?????)

LA, Up & Up are just like the old Target brand. They aren't my favorite because they seem to be sized really, really small.

Confession: other than in the hospital, I've never used "name brand" diapers. And since I don't "do" Walmart, I've never used those either.

I really like the Toys R Us Supreme brand before they changed. Those rarely if ever leak and are sized appropriately.

RE: Exercise

I think I will be able to walk at lunch 2-3 days a week. Then I can exercise when S does Julia bath (that's about a 20 minute workout) every other day, or I can wait til she goes to bed. J goes to bed at 7pm, so that gives me plenty of time. I just usually choose not to and instead play on the computer!
