I know exactly what you mean! That's the criteria that makes me love a workout too. Great job with 30DS! Good idea to have the hubs check out your form. That just came out wrong, sorry...

I'm also slightly challenged in the coordination dept. If you do get BoD, I highly rec giving BBL a try but starting out with these two workouts in it: Bum Bum Rapido and High & Tight. I think those are the best at sculpting the lower body without making frustrating coordination demands. Bum Bum Rapido is the 10 minute version of BBL's "signature" workout, Bum Bum, which is about 30 min. The problem w/ that one though is the moves are harder to follow. I really do love the other two though and highly recommend them.

I also think you'd rly like 21 Day Fix. The workout is designed similarly to 30DS, the trainer is an excellent teacher, and there's a modifier who's always present. It's smartly designed and tough (i.e, will have you drenched in sweat and possibly give you sore muscles the next day).
I really hate working out... it feels so good when you are done, but trying to psyche myself up for it is the worst! Thank you for the recommendations!!! Is the 21 day fix a shorter workout as well?

kfunk - Man can I relate to psyching yourself up for it being the worst. I'm back in the exercise habit, but right now I'm also studying math that I long ago forgot for a standardized test I have to take soon. I hate it so much! I foolishly took 2 weeks off, and getting back on track today was painful. 21 Day Fix is 30 min, and it goes by pretty quickly.

Yeah, ex trouble sucks. I don't even know what I was thinking. I have to remember that an ex is an ex for a reason. I've never had a relationship like this before, the kind that's like a horror movie villain and never rly dies. I'm so happy for you that you have a supportive boyfriend. I think it can really help bond people when they've had similar struggles. Weight, whether it's getting it lower or higher, is something that I think people have to have gone through themselves to really get.
Ya he's definitely a keeper. He will be here in 55 days! (Not that either of us is counting... Haha). I really want to be at 240 by when he's here, but 245 is more likely. Not that he cares at all lol. It does suck to weigh twice as much as your S/O though...

lunkah oh man, math... I struggle with that! I hope that your test goes well!! When you do workouts like 30DS, or 21 day fix, do you ever take rest days, or do you power through? Good for you for getting back on track after a break, that is the hardest part!!

jr - Woohoo, just 54 days now!

kfunk - There have been a few times when I've been strict and followed workout plans exactly. The vast majority of the time though I'm just not that obsessive and I take rest days when I'm sensing my body needs or I'm short on time. I expect a minimum of 4 workouts a week from myself. As long as I'm doing that, I'm cool with things.

Man, the endorphins must've been pumping hard during today's workout. I found myself having thoughts like, "I really like this. This is *me.* I'm going to do this for the rest of my life. Getting back to my regular weight is just the start. Then I'm going to keep working out and building more muscle. My body's so meant to be super toned." I mean, they're all good points but my gung-ho'ness was off the charts.

After I finished my upper body workout with 21 Day Fix, I decided I needed more sweat to feel satisfied so I did my favorite BBL workout right after. That did the trick.

And to think 2 months I ago I wasn't even working out!

Lunkah I never knew if the "21" or "30" day programs implied that there would be no rest days, its is a relief to know you take days off as you need them! GREAT job on adding another workout on after you had finished, that is amazing!! It always feels so good developing new, healthy habits!! Have you taken your pics yet?

kfunk - No, still no pics. I better not wait any longer or my before pic will essentially be my after pic. You got me curious about rest days with these programs. The name 30DS makes it sounds like it's meant to be continuous, but no rest days at all always sounded like an unsafe expectation to me. So I figured one rest day was expected. I googled and found this about 30DS. I found it interesting, and it increased my (already high) respect for JM...

Quote:
...I called the Jillian Michael's customer support hotline. They said she always recommends at least 1 rest day, if not two, and at least 1 cardio day a week, for ANY of her programs.
https://community.myfitnesspal.com/e...h-30-day-shred

So this method would increase the calendar time to complete 30DS, but it would make for a well-rounded and safe schedule.

I think some people need to do it every day bc they require momentum. If they took days off, they'd fall out of the habit and stop completely. So for them, every day might be best.

21 Day Fix is designed differently though and is meant to be done every day. But that's probably b/c it has 1 day each week for yoga, which is like an active rest day. Also, each day of the week with 21 Day Fix is a different workout, so that design incorporates rest time for different muscle groups.

lunkah That is awesome that you found that!! Thank you!! I am really excited to see if I can see any results when I take the half way pics! What are you planning on doing when you finish up the 21 day fix?

Chunkahlunkah: I love how much fun you're having with your workouts. I once did 30DS in 60 days -- one day on and one day off. The 60-day goal had the effect of getting me back to it each time.

August goal: 1200 minutes

1: 10 yoga, 40 walk; 50/1200
2: 10 yoga, 25 walk; 85/1200
3: 20 walk; 105/1200
4: 10 dance & stretch, 40 walk; 155/1200
5: 10 yoga, 25 walk; 190/1200
6: 35 dance & stretch; 225/1200
7: 10 yoga, 45 walk; 280/1200
8: 10 yoga, 40 walk; 330/1200
9: 35 walk; 365/1200
10: 10 yoga, 40 walk; 415/1200
11: 10 dance & stretch, 40 walk; 465/1200
12: 10 dance & stretch, 40 walk; 515/1200
13: 40 walk; 555/1200
14: 10 yoga, 40 walk; 605/1200
15: 40 walk; 645/1200
16: 30 dance & stretch; 675/1200
17: 35 walk; 710/1200
18: 40 walk; 750/1200

kfunk - Well, technically I haven't even truly started 21 Day Fix. I'm not doing the official schedule. I've avoided several of the workouts bc they require lots of floor work, and I need to get a mat. So I've just been looping a few of the workouts. Once I get a mat, I think I'll give the complete system a try. I don't know yet what I'll do after that. Good luck with the pics!

joy - You've helped turn me into this exercise maniac. 60DS sounds like it would work for me too. Hmm, maybe that's what I'll do when my BoD subscription ends in Nov...
