my new plan - swim or bike 3 days week (30mins cardio, walk to pool to warm up, few mins cooldown/stretches)
brisk walk on other 3 days, with warm up and cool-down
flexibility stretches - 10mins a day (must stick to this! I am not going to develop the spine and muscle probs my family have!)
i' devised this using the article 'fitness fundamentals', which is a sticky on this forum. it's very good. it taught me that i wasn't warming up and cooling down properly, making my body enter into cardio unprepared. i've been on plan for a week now. exams are over so it's all go! walking will easier when i'm home cos we keep corgis and they (well one of them) is a great walker x

We're going away for the weekend to visit my MIL. She has a treadmill and I think I'll bring my sneaks so that I can squeeze in a run or two. The up-side of visiting MIL is that she lives in a real city with real shops! I'm a woman in desperate need of new clothes for the gym and I might just be able to buy some. Hooray!

45 minute fast walk at the mall - new weekend exercise is to walk and walk circles while my little boy plays in the kid area. Plus 30 minutes on my mini stair step tonight and 20 minutes weights Total 95 minutes of exercise. I'm getting started again after letting myself get out of shape, aiming for 30-45 min per day cardio, 20 min 3x week weights and abs 3-4x per week.

I have such a hard time staying motivated to exercise...I always have a great plan in the morning and by late afternoon, I can feel it starting to fall apart! Yesterday was the last day for that! I know what I need to do, now I need to do it--consistantly! Tonight my plan is 30 mins of cardio and upper body weights.

Thanks for the welcome! Well, I did it! Ok, almost all of it...I only did 20mins of cardio (had planned on 30) because my knee was killing me after 10--I pushed it to 20, but didn't think I should go any longer. I also did my upper body (weights). I wish I could bottle the 'after workout energized feeling' that I have and save it for those afternoons when I feel like I am fighting w/ myself to get to the gym.

Have a great night!

I don't personally have experience with Curves or the other ladies only gyms but if you are finding it too easy now, I hope you didn't lock yourself in a one year contract. If you did, make the best of it by brisk or hill walking... When your contract is up join a real gym and get some lessons with a personal trainer...

I think Curves is just for extreme beginners. My mom joined and locked herself into a contract but we had a death in the family so she got out of it. How about trying the walking dvd's, people seem to like those that are on this site, Leslie something? Or join the local ymca so it wouldn't be as much pressure as a co-ed gym? I'm in one and there are people of all ages and sizes. Getting back in shape it's very comfortable not being the only one in a big shirt rather then a sports bra. They have lots of classes and one is a circuit routine similar to Curves where you go in a circle (but you don't do cardio inbetween machines, you do it all afterwards).

My legs felt too, too tired to get back on the treadmill after my lifting--I managed another 3 minutes on the treadmill before quitting for the day. This is why I like to do my cardio first!

Horsey - are you talking about the Walk Away the Pounds videos with Leslie Sansone? She has a 1-mile jog that I love...but she is annoyingly perky sometimes. Then again, almost all fitness video instructors are, for me, irritatingly perky-tastic. Except the Aussie who does my kickboxing tape and keeps yelling "Do it like you really mean it! No smiling!"

mandalinn82
06-06-2007, 04:39 PM
Baffled - I tend to do whatever I like least first. That way, when I finish the first part of whatever I'm doing, I am looking forward to the second part. I -love- strength training, so I make sure to do it after my cardio. Otherwise I'd finish my strength training and be WAY too likely to go "but I don't WANNA go do my cardio...I'm TIIIIIIRED" and skip it.

baffled111
06-06-2007, 04:46 PM
Hey Amanda. I kinda like both cardio and strength training, actually, but the conventional wisdom is that you're supposed to do the strength training first--a trainer years ago told me that you should do it that way because otherwise you'll waste all your energy doing cardio and not have enough left to do the weights properly. I, however, always do cardio first, because what I really like most about the gym is BURNING CALORIES and I happen to think that if I waste all my energy building muscles, I won't have any left for the real calorie-burning cardio :) Anyway, my legs have been so sore after leg day that I thought I should just do a 10 min run to warm up, then work my legs, and then hop back on the treadmill. Alas, my suspicions were correct: no energy or leg strength left to run after all that squatting and lunging.

Ah, we live and learn :)

I know they say do strength training first and then cardio, but I have never had the problem of tiring out. I always do my cardio first because it gets me warmed up and pumped up and being too tired has never been an issue for me. Guess I'm weird like that. :dizzy:

I've been doing DDR (dance dance revolution) an hour in the morning, an hour when I get home from school, and an hour just before I eat. I'm cutting those in half so I only play half an hour morning, noon, night, etc. since I'm trying to get to standard level instead of my light/basic level.
So far I've done an hour of that and a mile walk.

My daughter and i had a blast working every muscle we know of, and from the feel of it, some muscles that i didnt even know i had. It was 90 degrees here today, so the pool was just what we needed. I think we will make a habit of it.

I gave my knee a mighty whack last weekend...thought it was ok (it isn't like a twisting injury or anything) but my knees are so precarious...so the joint around the bruise/injury swelled internally, and my knee is locking.

Long story short - I can't do ANY cardio right now without it popping and locking in and out, which hurts. I'm not pleased. Anyone have any arm-only cardio? I did the elliptical M-W of the week, and it just kept getting worse, so I took yesterday as a rest day...but it still hurts today. Hopefully by tomorrow morning I'll be able to get back on the horse (I'm icing and elevating).

Well that was a long way of saying "no cardio" - but I did do a kick-*** arm workout for an hour.

06-16-2007, 01:18 AM
Amanda, does your gym have one of those arm bike things? They are **** to use, but they are a way of doing cardio while sitting down and not using your legs.

I skipped the gym today, but I rode my bike to and from work and took my dog on an 80 min/5 mile walk last night as a bonus for yesterday.

Mandalinn: I agree with baffled, try an arm-bike. It's a round machine that kind of looks like a fan....

Well, it looks like I can't do any exercise for at least two weeks. I hurt my ankle and the doctor said I shouldn't put pressure on it until the pain goes away.

Today I actually lost track of time while I was exercising! I went out trail running and it was pretty hot so I only planned (and expected to make it) for 30 minutes but by the time I got back to my car I'd been out for an hour and 5 minutes! Usually I'm pushing myself to get enough time in and this time I had no idea I was exercising so long! (yeah I was pretty damn tired by the time I was done but it felt good!)

Wed I lifted weights--arm/shoulders and since it was SO gorgeous outside (a big change from the day before when it was SO hot!)--I didn't do any cardio at the gym, but took my dogs for a nice long walk instead. Two dogs (comibined weight around 70lbs) on a tandem leash....has to count as more uppder body work out too! ;)

Thurs: plan is just cardio...don't have a lot of time, but want to fit something in.

Was not feeling the gym today. Sar and I decided we'd go for a swim instead. We brought our rubber playground ball, with the intention of treading water and playing catch.

There was a posse of 3 kids under 10 in the pool - they asked to play - so we had an hour and a half game of VERY aggressive water volleyball. And MAN, it was a REALLY good workout! I tried not to put my feet on the ground at all.

So 80 minutes of cardio in the pool, on a day when I didn't want to go to the gym! Yay me!

Yesterday: 45 min bike ride through the bucolic wheat fields and vineyards. Only 315 calories. Boo!!!!!

Today: Gym ADD: 16 mins each of treadmill, bike & elliptical (450 cals)
Upper body weights.

Later I plan to take my dog out for an hour long walk. That's usually good for a few calories.

This weekend: Nothing formally "countable", but it was a very active weekend. Friday we went out with friends, and I danced the night away. Saturday we started our big spring cleaning project - cleaning out closets, under beds, cabinets, etc. Lots of big lifting, hauling, etc. Sunday was more cleaning - this time the scrubbing, disinfecting, etc. variety.

Today so far: 60 min strength training.

Welcome Katie!!!!

My body is feeling the need to move today, which is unfortunate because I am slammed in meetings. But I've been doing yoga poses in my downtime for a total of 30 min. Not a ton, but something.

Regularly scheduled cardio tonight

45 min strength. Tried something new (poses you hold like wall squats/planks/bridges) rather than a certain # of reps of a single movement.

Yet another "Note to Self" - Just because you -can- hold a bridge for 15 seconds, 4 times, does not mean you should. Another note - muscle soreness most places on your body feels good! Muscle soreness on your BACK makes moving really, really difficult.

I will try to get in 30 min o' cardio but need to find something that won't involve putting any sort of weight/pressure on my back muscles.

Got bored with my usual treadmill run today, so for the last 15 mins I did intervals: 1 min walking at 4.8 and another min running at 7.5. It was great! This is the first time I've ever made 300 calories in 30 minutes instead of 32 or 33!
