Morning chicas :sunny: and brrrr...it is freakin' cold out there!!

Yesterday - Weight Training - completed
Today - Ab Ripper X and Treadmill

Echo, glad to have you back with us. And, from my experience, ARX works to strengthen core if you do it consistently. I've been doing it 3x/week. Now, I can b!tch and whine with you about it :D. Just to see, other day I was able to hold the plank position for over 1 minute. I finally gave in cuz I got bored staying in that position :p. So, keep doing it girl!!

MillieK, post away everyday...this is an accountability thread for all of us to workout aka move your body every day. Keep up the good work!!

October is here people!! Pretty soon it will be holidays and food galore. So, keep moving and working hard! Have a good day :)

LMAO!! awesome, i need someone to b*tch about it too!!! especially the mason twists, its like the wind has been knocked out of me!! today was the FIRST Ever time, i stayed with Tony throughout the whole darn thing, even the bonus round!! omg!!!! felt good though afterwards. usually in the past, i had to take a mini break after each 10. but today i was like, no im gonna do it alongside them!

the other exercises, im not so good with just do as many as i can

i hate reverse bicycles!!!

i have to like pause between each of them. he does it one after the other!

i still cant get my damn legs straight up!! hehe but i have noticed my tummy has slimmed down abit yipee. so it DOES WORK! :)

holding the plank position for over 1 minute. is freakin AWESOME!!! wow well done! :cheer2:

exactly - well said pintobean!! heck I post several times a day sometimes!

each time you exercise. just come right here, and shout about it !! it feels good. its good for you. and its good for us too! its motivational for all :carrot:

sometimes the motivation to do the exercise, is so i can post about it lol.

ps pinto bean. cant believe you got bored! i'm dying when i reach 1 minute on the plank!! and my arms get shaky hahahah

Oh man! Mason Twist - I have good and bad days with it. Sometimes I can do all 50 with him. And, other times I have to break at 30 as I fall over :lol: and then continue with the rest 20. Awesome job on doing all 50!! Reverse bicycle is the debbil :devil:. I can see my legs moving yet it feels they are not...if you know what I mean. Oh, I also can do the first two exercises - in and outs + the front bicycle - with my hands in the air. I thought I'd never be able to do that. I just started it though...past 2 times. So, yeah it works :D. Oh, I still pause between some of the workouts. I don't like scissor either.

Plank, you'll be able to do it. When I said bored it was more like ok, can I relax now? I was beginning to shake a little but it felt like as if I'd been forever in that position. I could have gone 10 secs more (maybe) if I tried, I don't know. My last time was 1:21.

oh i hate scissors !!!!

i know plank is the best core exercise and for the abs! so awesome!!

Oh, how I love fall, but it's a difficult relationship. On the one hand, it's beautifully bright & brisk & cool & makes me feel like moving. On the other hand, it's getting darker & darker earlier & earlier, which makes it harder to hit the gym after work -- it feels so late. But I want to keep up the good work. Put it this way: I want to do what everyone else will only start resolving to do in three months' time. I am determined to make it through the consecutive health landmines presented by Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years by eating healthily & moving my body daily. Also, there's this sleeveless dress I want to wear to my friend's wedding in L.A. in late November, and I want my arms to look pretty good that night.

So ... onward ...

Oct. 2: One hour elliptical, abs work

I had a bad night last night. I had a carb-binge, big time. I feel like my tummy is going to explode.

However, I did still do my exercise! I hopped on the Wii and I'm very glad I did. So, one step backwards for my eating and one step forward for my exercise. Ane one more step forward - I cleaned out the fridge and the junk food is GONE!!

:cheer3: Great start to the month everyone :cheer2:

October 1: 45 mins on my Stairmaster + 9.5 mins ab workout.

Yesterday, I finished the last week of the STS program for chest & back and I can't believe how much more weight I am lifting. For example, I can now bench press 70 lbs for 4 sets of 8 reps each. Just 2 weeks ago I had a hard time using the same weight for 4 sets of 7 reps each. I needed my dh to spot me during week 2, and yesterday I had no problem lifting that weight without a spotter.

i just finished Kenpo X P90X , i love this workout!! and boy was i sweating!! at the end when i was doing the stretch, a bead of sweat fell off my forehead when i came up from bending down.

and today is the first time, i finished the full HOUR!! woohoo!! in the past i was usually too busy to finish the full hour.

this is my 3rd time doing kenpo X, and i love it!! it really is fun but also a great workout. :boxing:

Morning everyone :sunny: TGIF!!

Yesterday - Ab Ripper X and Treadmill - completed
Today - Weight Training and possibly walk @ work

Echo, I did Kenpo once with hubby. It's a great workout.

BTW, for anyone thinking about getting a pull up bar...I have recently started using Iron Gym Pull up bar (http://www.getirongym.com/Default.asp?bhcp=1). I also bought the ab straps. We just got it from a fitness store not from their site. Of course, I am doing assisted pull ups as (a) I can't reach the damn bar without a chair :lol: and (b) I don't have enough strength yet to pull myself up without help. I believe, my ARX routine has made my core a tad stronger that I can use the straps to do some ab work with the bar. I was totally shocked to find that out. I was totally expecting to not being able to do even one but I was pleasantly surprised.

I do have to wait for my body fat % to go way down to notice my abs but till that happens I can get them stronger definitely ;)

Keep up the wonderful hard work everyone! You guys are doing so well.

October 3: Nothing... (This has not been an amazing week for exercise. Must improve next week!)

October 4: Nothing. Was exhausted and am apparently back to my backslidden ways and poor sleep habits.
October 5: W3D3 after a sleepless night. Was rough! Don't know whether it was tiredness or just that I'm not ready to move on to Wk 4.

Recently its been really hard to find the motivation to exercise. The diet part is not hard but the physical is ROUGH.

morning everyone :sunny: and it is cold out there. I am going to wear gloves tomorrow morning.

Yesterday - Weight Training - completed
Today - Ab Ripper X and Treadmill

Toastedsmoke, I agree, physical is harder but remember it is to enhance the diet part you're following. Eating healthy and physical workout go hand in hand. Just hang in there...Also, I noticed, for me anyway, that my workouts were much better on days I ate some form of carb (between 100-200 calorie) an hour or so before my workouts (especially, cardio). I really noticed a change in the energy as I felt less tired. I usually had a slice of bread with little butter. Maybe, it might be something you might want to look into. Also, are you drinking some sort of recovery (protein) drink after?

Amelia, welcome to this thread :)

Have a wonderful day everyone! And, definitely, keep up the hard work!

:wave: everyone

I've taken the last 5 days off from my workouts as I was out of town. I did do quite a bit of walking though. I think I needed the rest as I was feeling very worn out before I left. The best part is that I came back down 1.5 lbs. Normally, I am lucky if I can maintain when I am away from home. I am rested and ready to get going again. Today I plan on doing 47 mins on my Stairmaster and then a total body weight workout and an ab workout.

I see everyone has been busy with their workouts which is fantastic! Way to go :cheer2: :cheer3:

Have a wonderful day!
