I didn't see a thread... thought I did earlier :dizzy: :)

If there is one, please delete this one.

Anyway, Sunday I did Turbo Jam 20 minutes.
Today was full body weight training - 2 sets (about 30 mins). :carrot:

I did nothing Sunday (still sick and recovering from my icky fall...) Monday I ran 3 miles outside and did 30 min strength training. Today I hit the treadmill to run 2.5 miles and walk 1/2 mile.

Well done to you all for your hard work!

Sunday - I went swimming 1/2 mile
Monday - Gym - did interval training 12 mins of stepping (intervals of running on and off step and normal stepping)/ 10 mins of resistance x3
Tuesday - Gym did free/ machine weights and lots of pilates type stretching and then went to a step class (my first!) it was way too complicated - lots of mamboing and spinning so just did basic step where I couldn't follow
Wednesday - will go to bodypump this evening

I bought a book on running yesterday too - have that in mind for later in the year when I get below 200lbs - wish the scale would move for me!

EnglishMuffin, don't wait until you're under 200!! I started running when I was down to about 250. Just start slowly, with short intervals of jogging mixed into your walks. Do the Couch-to-5K Running Plan on coolrunning.com, or your own version of it, and you'll be running miles in no time! I'm slow, but I can do 3 miles without stopping at this point, and I'm training for a 10k. The sooner you start, the sooner your body will adjust to the challenges of running, and you'll get addicted!

I did my 30 minutes of walking first thing this morning - and part of the Biggest Loser DVD. (I am still looking for the 2nd one) I will be thrilled when I can actually do the whole thing!

WOW, 3 miles?!?! Very impressive. I plan to start running one day. I'm going to check out that coolrunning site. Thanks Lisa!!

Well I've been doing my WATP video 2x a day for about 27 mins a pop 5x a week for the past few weeks. Yesterday my knees just started killing me. I'm able to do the videos, but not much else. Like regular walking around has been difficult. I am really, really not happy about this. In order for me to keep losing I need to keep increasing my exercise. I guess I have got to face up to things and realize that walking is not in my future and I will need to come up with some other forms of exercise. I really enjoy working out at home. Partially because I like breaking my workout in to 2 sessions and for the convienience and it's cheaper and on and on and on. Gosh I hate what I've done to myself.

Robin, when I first started running my knees hurt all the time and I almost stopped. They hurt so much I couldn't walk around sometimes as well. I'm no doctor, so you may want to check with one of those, of course, but have you tried icing them at night? It doesn't seem like it will do much, but that's what I did and I finally worked through it. They still hurt on occasion if I do a really difficult run, but you'd be surprised what wonders icing can work. I filled up little dixie cups with water and froze them, then tore off part of the cup and used them as little icing utensils, rubbing them on the sore spots.

LisaMarie thanks for the tip. I would love if I could work through this. These past couple of week I have bumped up the speed of my walking. I'm just not burning calories the same as when I was 287 lbs., so I keep on increasing the exercise. I'd love to walk even more, but I am afraid I will really do a number on my knees. Did your knees hurt during your workouts or after? Also wondering if you had any knee problems before you started running and losing all the weight? One more question - how long do you ice your knees for? Thanks again. I really appreciate the help. :hug:

Oh man! You all are making me feel guilty! I think I'm doing "good" to WALK 30 minutes at 2 MPH!! Sheesh! When will I be able to move up with all you hard workers? How long did it take you to become used to "just walking" after you started? Should I be pushing myself more? I already feel lightheaded when I get off but is that something that will pass if I just push myself beyond it? Thanks!!

DO NOT FEEL GUILTY WHATSOEVER!!! You are doing great!!! When I first started I could barely make it for 15 mins at a snails pace. But I was burning more calories because at a higher weight that's what you do. I built up
s-l-o-w-l-y. And I still am building up. Now of course I've got the stamina, but unfortunately my knees are crappy. As long as you're doing more exercise then you used to, you're doing fine. You should slowly increase. You might wanna try something like I do, if it works for you that is. I do less time, but
2x a day, early morning and late afternoon. I find it very doable that way. Instead of increasing my minutes, I've increased my pace. But you have plenty of time to do that.

Mrs Quadcrew - I found my Biggest Loser 2 at Target, I can't remember if it was in the section by the books or by the exercise equipment though....

Tonight I did the Biggest Loser dvd..... I did the warmup, Functional Flexibility, Bootcamp and Cool down.....

Everyone is doing soooo good!!!

Thanks, Robin! I know I am going to have to take my time, but after reading all the above posts I was beginning to think maybe I needed to view it in a different light! LOL! Thanks so much for your advice and help!

Rockinrobin, I'm not Lisa, but I can tell you my experience. I have had knee problems for a long time, but I really wanted to run. So I got a really good pair of shoes (and I buy new ones often), a knee support, and I started slowly, and I try to stay on softer surfaces. I ice my knee, and I work on strengthening all my other leg muscles, which really helps. The more weight you lose, of course, the easier it is on your joints. Stretching is also important.

Monday: 45 min. elliptical, 35 min. weight training, 15 min. stretching
Tuesday: 45 min. elliptical, 11 min. rowing machine, 35 min. weight training, 20 min. stretching
Wednesday: 1 hr. water aerobics, 35 min. weight training, 15 min. stretching
Thursday: mopped the floor--really tired so I avoided the gym
Friday: 1 hour water aerobics, an hour of weight training with the trainer, 15 min. stretching

30 minute walk this morning, and part of the Biggest Loser (the first one, still can't find #2 yet! - my Target didn't have it)

Robin, I didn't have knee problems before, so that may be one reason I was able to work through it. My only problem was that I broke my right ankle a few years ago and it still acts up a little. My knees hurt during and after the workouts, but I would ice them for about 15 minutes at night after running/walking. Sheila's right about shoes -- good shoes make all the difference.

Ritzy, don't worry about whether you're doing enough yet. You'll work up to it, and you should do it slowly. I started with walks that lasted around 20 to 25 minutes, and I didn't do them every day. You get addicted, and you almost have to stop yourself from progressing too quickly, but eventually you find a balance between what feels good and what works for your weight loss.

Unfortunately, I think I really do have to take a little break from running and working out for a few days. I've been sick for TWO WEEKS and I can't shake it. I haven't been to the doctor yet (I always put that off because they honestly never seem to do anything but talk to me for 30 seconds and prescribe something that doesn't work), but I guess I should go tomorrow. I've been trying to keep up with my runs, but I think that's making it worse. This sucks! :(

Today I excerised for the first time in ages!!!!

I did stretch and limber which is 15 minute stretch routine. (I just love doing it by itself sometimes twice a day because it feels sooo good.)

I did WATP 1 mile. It's not much & prob could have done more because I usually walk a mile a day just to commute, but since I hate exercising. I'm going to just do 1 mile everyday this week. I can't talk my self out of one mile!

Tonight I went to Curves - in between machines I jogged - YAY (normally I just use the board like an aerobics step) and then at home I used my stability ball and did situps....

Tomorrow is going to be "off-day" so I don't know if I going to exercise or not yet.... LOL

I am thinking that I am actually looking forward to weighing in - I was supposed to do it on Sunday - but since I started Curves - they will do all my measurments for me - so I am going to wait until the 16th.

Everyone is doing wonderful!! Keep it up ladies!!

I love this thread - it is great to come in here and read what other people are doing and pickup some great ideas - because I get bored easily - so I try and do something a little different every week.

Yesterday was my off-day, but while I was out I ended up purchasing some weighted balls (3 pounds) and ended up "playing" with them for about 20 minutes last night. Today I am going to look for a 5 pound set. They were fun and I can use them for my biggest loser workouts and my WATP workouts... "MULTI-TASKING"

I am going to head-off to Curves in a few minutes - it will be my 3rd time this week.... I don't know if I am going to do more this evening or not - I am just feeling a little bit run-down today........


I ended up coming home and doing my situps and using my new weights on the stability ball.
