Hello, sports fans! Well, I'm (with gratitude) robbing this wonderful thread idea from elsewhere on the site. It seemed to me that it would be a good idea to have a weekly thread here within our group devoted to exercise check-in; my thought is that it will help us to keep ourselves accountable for getting in some daily exercise, help us to motivate one another, and just plain be interesting since we like each other and are interested in how it's going for one another!

So, if you want to participate, just log in and give a quick post with an update on what you accomplished in the way of daily exercise! Doesn't have to be a big, long-winded explanation -- just the quick and the dirty, unless you have more to say!

WATP - 3 mile
Arms and Abs 2 - 40 minutes (full tape)

Sarah - What did you think of the Arms Portion of I want that body? I wasn't sure if my form was right on the Abs Portion #1 . But I tell you I sure felt them later that night. I LOVED THAT!! I really like that they have the work outs broken down into 15 minutes. It takes away the "I don't have time" excuses and I felt I got a really good workout.
Sarah you are so darn awesome you work so hard. I only hope to be able to get 1/2 as good as you with my workouts!

Monday:

Walking: 4 miles
Upperbody with Nautilus: 30 minutes
Elliptical: 30 minutes total with 24 minutes of that being HIIT. Two weeks ago it was taking me 12 minutes to do a mile. I am glad to report that I can do a mile in less than 10 minutes. Never before did I think that I could really get into shape. But results like that don't lie and I can see positively that I am improving over time. I just find that amazing coming from someone who could not even walk a mile or so without feeling totally exhausted when I started this journey. Also, when I started HIIT, I was doing a minute of fast and then had to take 2 minutes to recover. Now I can do a minute of fast and only have to wait a minute and a half for the recover. I hope within the next two weeks I will have it down to 1 min. fast, 1 min. recover, etc.

As for today. I am still sick and have been for over a week now. Today was the worst day so far. I stayed on the couch most of the day. I could not muster up any energy to go the gym. My husband knows I am really sick if I am not pestering for him to go the gym with me. I hope that this passes soon. It is more annoying than anything. I don't like anything to come in between me and my exercise routine.

Tonight I did the 1-mile WATP and then Kathy Smith's Great Buns and Thighs Step Workout. I still can't do the whole thing with the arms, so I just delete the arms and try to hang through the rest of it......it's TOUGH for a step newbie!! :dizzy: Definitely a good workout though, and I like the variety.

Mez, you are ALWAYS so sweet to me..... :grouphug I swear, you just boost me up at all the right times, my friend! I liked both Arms routines on I Want That Body, but so far that's all I've done. I'm afraid of the abs! :eek: You're a better woman than I, I'll say that! I'll get to it eventually...obviously I'm just prolonging the inevitable. :lol: I also have Kathy Smith's Lose Weights to Lose Weight, and I'm using that one weekly also. (I do have a CrossBow but only work out with it now like a couple of times a month, so my goal is to get going with these short workouts on tape/DVD, and then hopefully I'll feel more motivated to do the longer CrossBow routines. And Mez, I think you do GREAT on your workouts! You inspire me too! :yes: I'm proud of you, my little Mezster.

Tammy, your progress is AWESOME, and I'm really proud of YOU, too! I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling poorly, but I think you did the right thing in taking it easy today. sometimes it's great to exercise through the sickness -- but not when you're just without any energy. Good job listening to your body, and you'll just jump right back on that elliptical soon enough. Hope you feel better very soon!

WATP - 3 Miles
I planned on doing more but my husband came home early from work. So I'm going to try fit a workout tape before I go to bed.

Sarah, you are such a wonderful person you're always so nice and helpful to everyone. How could anyone be nothing but sweet to you! :) As far as my workouts. I love to workout my abs. I'm not very strong so the arm workouts are what I'm afraid of. I can't do pushups. :( Humm I see a goal here. That is something for me to work for. Thanks Sarah :) You just helped me again.
I've heard great things about the Crossbow. I'm going to wait til the 1st of the year and see what kind of workout equiment they have on sale. I was so close to buying Elliptical it was an awesome buy and it had about everything on it. Plus it rode real smooth. Somehow my husband talked me out of it. Oh well the store still carries it so I'm sure it will go on sale again. Thanks for your kind words on my workout. :)

Wednesday:

Walking: 2 miles
lowerbody with Nautilus: 30 minutes
Elliptical: 30 minutes total. 10 of that HIIT. I just could not get any further with HIIT tonight. I was really tired to begin with. I am feeling better, but I am still working on getting my strength back. I forced myself to go to the gym today as I knew that tomorrow I won't exactly be eating on-plan. My gym is open tomorrow til noon. I will be going. Gotta love having a marine base close. Those people are 100% about fitness and the gym is open on the holiday.

You all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Friday:

Met with the trainer!! Oh my! He made me start to do lunges! I could hardly walk the next day. Yikes!! They are killer. Anyways, I did weights and four miles on the elliptical that day.

I did not go to the gym Saturday or today. Going Friday kicked my @ss since I am still sick. I don't seem to be recovering from what I have very quickly. To top that off, I realized a little to late that my low cal drink that had been sitting on the counter due to to little room in the fridge, had molded!! I had been really sick to my stomach for a couple of days and could not figure out why and now I know. It was really disgusting. I guess the heat from the Thanksgiving meal did it in. I still get a little retching feel in my stomach when I think about it. Never again will that happen!!

I hope that everyone had a great weekend.

Now that I'm back from my trip to Virginia, I thought I'd fill in all my exercise from last week, since I did actually manage to stay on track at my sister's gym.

Sunday: 35 minutes cross-trainer, 20 minutes StairMaster
Monday: 30 minutes cross-trainer, 40 minutes showing my sister how to use the weight machines (probably a 15 minute weights workout for just me)
Tuesday: 35 minutes elliptical, 15 minutes StairMaster
Wednesday: 50 minutes cross-trainer
Thursday: Long (4+ miles) walk, with last mile 100% uphill (I can't BELIEVE I could do this!!!!)
Friday: No exercise - traveling all day
Saturday - Sunday: Too sick to workout (Tammy, I think I must have the same thing you do... I feel terrible, and it's not going away!)

Yuck!! Jennifer, that sucks. I guess mine has lasted almost two darn weeks now. It just keeps hanging on. I walked my daughter to school this morning and it is a 2 1/2 mile walk. I thought I was ready for it but it really wore me out. It's really annoying. I don't want to get off track with my exercise to much. Hopefully we both get better soon.
