Morning chicas 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 . 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 . 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!

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 and then continue with the rest 20. Awesome job on doing all 50!! Reverse bicycle is the debbil . 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 . 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.

lol i know those mason twists are a toughie!!

lol i think reverse bicycles are harder than the normal one. i took a break, and i still find them tough!! i know, its like you're in slow motion, or your legs are in treacle!!!

oh i hate scissors !!!!

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

1.21 way to go!! thats totally awesome!!

===

Michelle. love how you have 3 workouts, you so rock! i'm gonna do the same too.

how much time difference do you have between workouts ?

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. 1: One hour bike, weights
Oct. 2: One hour elliptical, abs work
Oct. 3: Ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill, weights
Oct. 4: Swimming class for two hours. Oct. 5: One hour bike, weights
Oct. 6: One hour elliptical, abs work
Oct. 7: 25 minutes recumbent bike, 35 minutes bike, weights.
Oct. 8: One hour bike, abs work
Oct. 9: One hour elliptical, weights
Oct. 10: One hour elliptical, abs work, walked 5 miles thrifting on Upper East Side
Oct. 11: Swimming class, one hour, weights beforehand
Oct. 12: Ran just over 5 miles on treadmill, abs work
Oct. 13: One hour bike, weights.
Oct. 14: One hour bike, abs work.
Oct. 15: One hour bike, weights
Oct. 16: One hour elliptical, abs work
Oct. 17: One hour elliptical, weights
Oct. 18: One hour swim class
Oct. 19: One hour elliptical, weights
Oct. 20: Ran just a little less than 5 miles on treadmill, abs work
Oct. 21: One hour bike, weights.
Oct. 22: One hour bike, abs work
Oct. 23: One hour elliptical, weights
Oct. 24: One hour elliptical, abs work.
Oct. 25: Weights, one hour swim class
Oct. 26: One hour bike, abs work
Oct. 27: One hour elliptical, weights
Oct. 28: One hour bike, abs work.
Oct. 29: One hour elliptical, weights.
Oct. 30: One hour elliptical, abs work, made up chest flys from yesterday.
Oct. 31: Ran just over 4 miles on treadmill, weights, tried an hour-long Pilates class -- very difficult!
