Thanks Narnia!:D aww sorry to hear you had the flu. thats really good that you rested, as you're not meant to exercise when your sick, your body needs lots of rest to fight off the virus.

I'm in, too, though I tend to keep it all in a single post. Something about seeing it all accumulate & add up like a really long grocery store receipt makes me feel good. Also it makes me not want to "break the chain." Though I know that it will be difficult to exercise every single day in November, as I've done in September and October, because I'll be doing some traveling this month, I really hope to keep moving. No remorse in January!!!

Nov. 1: One hour swimming class
Nov. 2: One hour bike, weights
Nov. 3: One hour elliptical, abs work
Nov. 4: One hour bike, weights
Nov. 5: One hour bike, abs work
Nov. 6: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 7: One hour elliptical, my second Pilates class ever
Nov. 8: One hour swimming class, weights
Nov. 9: One hour bike, abs work. Another late night at work & me feeling harried, as I always do before going on a trip. But I made myself go to the gym anyway.
Nov. 10: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 11: One hour bike, abs work. My doctor weighed me & said I had gained seven pounds since September. I really had to pee & had been holding it in case he needed a sample, so maybe it was more like six. But still. I must examine my eating habits & my daily intake, as I have not missed a day of exercise since my last appointment with him, and in fact, have stepped up weights & mat work on my abs considerably.
Nov. 12: One hour elliptical. Flew to LA.
Nov. 13: One hour elliptical, weights at gym at friend's apartment bldg in Culver City
Nov. 14: One hour bike, abs work, again at gym at friend's place
Nov. 15: No exercise. :-( Up late after wedding the night before, flew all day from LA to NY.
Nov. 16: One hour elliptical, Pilates class
Nov. 17: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 18: One hour bike, weights. The gym at the office suddenly has new faces. Why all at once, I wonder?
Nov. 19: One hour bike, abs work. More new faces at the gym. Compensating for Thanksgiving already?
Nov. 20: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 21: One hour elliptical, Pilates class
Nov. 22: One hour swimming class, weights
Nov. 23: One hour bike, abs work. Gym empty again.
Nov. 24: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 25: One hour bike, abs work. Gym desolate
Thanksgiving Day: One hour elliptical, weights. Many of us rats at the gym at its 8 AM opening.
Nov. 27: One hour bike, 15 minutes rowing, abs work
Nov. 28: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 29: One hour bike, 15 minutes rowing
Nov. 30: One hour elliptical, weights, 30 minutes swimming at gym at Turning Stone casino

Hi everyone, I came here to admit that I haven't worked out even one day in November :o I have really been struggling to get going again after being sick. I have to stop with the excuses and just do it! Coming here and reading everyone's posts has got me motivated again, so I will be starting my workout in a few minutes.

readytobeme - that's wonderful that you and your mom are going to Curves together!

Ez - sorry to hear that you need to have surgery. I hope everything goes smoothly and that you have a speedy recovery.

Echo - love your new avatar!

Fri 6th: REST

tommorow is my rest day. since i've been working out 6 days in a row since last saturday and need my body to rest, even though oddly enough i dont want to! but i know i must!! jillian michaels talks about how working out is the architect and resting is the builder. when your working out, your creating tiny micro tears and then rest is when your body heals the muscles creating stronger leaner muscles. so its when you rest that you're building a stronger leaner body! so that makes me feel less guilty taking the day off tommorow from exercise :)

Today I did.

1. 55 minutes of Jillian Michaels : no more trouble zone dvd
(boy was i sweating! she takes no breaks, i have to pause the dvd though!).

then I did 29 minutes of the biggest loser cardio max dvd. i wanted to workout for 2 hours , but after 1 and half hours, my tummy started growling and i was feeling tired and hungry. so i thought its not worth it. as your body needs fuel to workout, and if your working out and your hungry your body will only start to metabolism lean muscle! which i dont want.

i know - my discipline went out the window, it happens from time to time, no one can be perfectly on plan all of the time. as long as most of the time you are on track.. its hard being disciplined all of the time. but i try my best. its not easy. but yeh you're right I definately need to be more disciplined if i want to get to my goal weight :drill: i just fell of the wagon, i dont even know why i did it. i guess i just really wanted those doritos! i'm not buying them anymore, i cant trust myself if they are in the house.

i alternated between running on the spot and doing step ups

Jumping in even though it's nearly the end of the month...

I restarted C25K. I haven't pulled on my runners since the 10k I did on the last weekend in August. Life has been yucky.

But now I'm doing it again. Week 1 day 2 today, and it was harder than I remember. But I did it! Heat and all (>30 degrees C already).

Total for November: 2 days. 70 minutes.

Well, look who showed up:D Don't be pissed, use your frustration to your advantage. Eating healthy and exercising is the key anyways to proper weight loss. So join us here and at Sparks, and we will see how far we can take it.

Hi GALS ~ I'm back in action....although I have ice on my...anyway...Angie and I got down to the beach for a little over 2 mile walk with the mutts. We intended to go 3 miles or more but I guess I wasn't quite ready for that...ouch!

Had a great afternoon to do it in...saw a cute little 3 month golden retriever my girls just fell in love with...all 3 of them!

We enjoyed a nice lunch across from the water at a Mexican joint we like...carne asada burrito for me....will burn those calories next time out!

You are all doing great....thanks for the wishes and concerns while I was recovering!

I didnt feel like working out , it was like around 9pm, and instead just wanted to eat hehe. and felt like i had no energy. but i forced myself and told myself to just get change and put on my workout clothes and said, i will just push through it and just get the workout done! and funny enough during my workout, i got all this energy and did it! weird isnt it. so even though i just wanted to eat and relax and watch tv i thought no, i need to workout, so i did. and im so glad i did cause i feel so much better and feel all the better for it! and i cant believe where all the energy came from to do the workout, cause jump training is the hardest workout i do.

I empathize with you, I grew up with wood floors, they look so good when they are done, but sheesh, a lot of work:D

Well, I didn't exercise and I didn't diet, so......2.5 weight gain lol, then I took a water pill and lost 2 pounds yesterday(I love those magic pills). So, I hopefully will be on track today. I have a little extra motivation as I have a Doctors appt. on Monday. I reported a 10 pound weight loss in May, and hopefully another 5 on Monday. Baby steps for some, but they have been steps that I have been able to maintain.:)

aww thanks! felt lazy and sore yesterday aswell and didnt exercise :( but today i'm going to do my last chance workout!

i hear ya on the weight gain. the lowest i saw this week was 153.4lbs and today i'm back up at 155.6lbs cause i had a high calorie day the other day and didnt workout much this week. i realised i really have to stay ontop of things or i can easily see the scale creep up.

thats awesome that you have 15lbs lost! every step counts no matter how big or small!! good luck with the doc appointment tommorow! the main thing is that you've been able to maintain it, and thats the most important thing!! you've done so well!!

i've planned my last chance workout plan for today, will change to blue on completion. got my weigh in tommorow!

SUNDAY: LAST CHANCE WORKOUT:

workout 1: bike ride - 40 minutes - burn 400 calories. did not do. was raining really hard to go in the garden, and was too cold to go to the little summer house/outbuilding at the back of my garden where my exercise bike is stored. so next week, i've decided to bring in my exercise into the house temporarily for the winter.

workout 2: p90x kenpo X - completed! 48 minutes, burned 312 calories :flame: (used 3lb hand held weights for some of the punches for the first time, to add some intensity, felt abit slow and sluggish today and my heart rate wasnt that high).

workout 3: wind sprints - 22 minutes (maintain heart rate 80-90%) - burn 220 calories. completed! 27 minutes, burned 227 calories

Total calorie burn AIM = 1050calories - equivalent to 1/3 of a 1lb. (0.3lbs) (30% of 1lb) did not achieve.

Total calories burned = 539 calories. ~ 0.15lbs (15% of 1lb)

Over the week-end I was able to get 1 mile in Saturday before the rain drenched us....the mutts and I were soaked! Then yesterday Angie and I got 2.5 in the afternoon, we took it easy as I am still feeling it ;) This morning I went out hoping to get at least 2 miles in but I felt decent so the mutts and I did our 3 mile loop :)

Which means....

I'm in, too, though I tend to keep it all in a single post. Something about seeing it all accumulate & add up like a really long grocery store receipt makes me feel good. Also it makes me not want to "break the chain." Though I know that it will be difficult to exercise every single day in November, as I've done in September and October, because I'll be doing some traveling this month, I really hope to keep moving. No remorse in January!!!

Nov. 1: One hour swimming class
Nov. 2: One hour bike, weights
Nov. 3: One hour elliptical, abs work
Nov. 4: One hour bike, weights
Nov. 5: One hour bike, abs work
Nov. 6: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 7: One hour elliptical, my second Pilates class ever
Nov. 8: One hour swimming class, weights
Nov. 9: One hour bike, abs work. Another late night at work & me feeling harried, as I always do before going on a trip. But I made myself go to the gym anyway.
Nov. 10: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 11: One hour bike, abs work. My doctor weighed me & said I had gained seven pounds since September. I really had to pee & had been holding it in case he needed a sample, so maybe it was more like six. But still. I must examine my eating habits & my daily intake, as I have not missed a day of exercise since my last appointment with him, and in fact, have stepped up weights & mat work on my abs considerably.
Nov. 12: One hour elliptical. Flew to LA.
Nov. 13: One hour elliptical, weights at gym at friend's apartment bldg in Culver City
Nov. 14: One hour bike, abs work, again at gym at friend's place
Nov. 15: No exercise. :-( Up late after wedding the night before, flew all day from LA to NY.
Nov. 16: One hour elliptical, Pilates class
Nov. 17: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 18: One hour bike, weights. The gym at the office suddenly has new faces. Why all at once, I wonder?
Nov. 19: One hour bike, abs work. More new faces at the gym. Compensating for Thanksgiving already?
Nov. 20: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 21: One hour elliptical, Pilates class
Nov. 22: One hour swimming class, weights
Nov. 23: One hour bike, abs work. Gym empty again.
Nov. 24: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 25: One hour bike, abs work. Gym desolate
Thanksgiving Day: One hour elliptical, weights. Many of us rats at the gym at its 8 AM opening.
Nov. 27: One hour bike, 15 minutes rowing, abs work
Nov. 28: One hour elliptical, weights
Nov. 29: One hour bike, 15 minutes rowing
Nov. 30: One hour elliptical, weights, 30 minutes swimming at gym at Turning Stone casino
