jennie934 06-20-2005 08:25 PM

I tried to run in the park with my son riding his bike. After a day of camp, he didn't quite have the energy but we wer out and moving for about 40 minutes but I'd say I only jogged for 20.
I did a short pilates tape at home, 20 min.

Monday-50 minutes exercise bike

My TOM is here and I REALLY REALLY didn't want to exercise. Plus I have pink eye (don't ask...I can't seem to get well around here...strep last week, pink eye this week) so I'm pretty proud of myself for exercising today.

Great job ladies!
Keep up the hard work, it is worth it!!!

breakfastsurreal 06-21-2005 12:36 AM

oh girl I am with you on the TOM thing! The day before I started my Atkins diet (june 1) I started my period...then it lasted for 2 weeks! but was unusually light..then lsat week I started working out a lot more, and yesterday my TOM came BACK! only not so light...I got the works, headaches, backaches, cramping... It took everything I had to go workout today...did 30 mins on the eliptical on manual...surprisingly my cramps went away while I was working out, and that was the only 30 mins today that I felt fine. haha.

I am also wondering if I should add more time to my workout? 30 mins is pretty tough, I started at 5 and moved quickly up to there, but I dunno if I can do the eliptical any longer...maybe I need to find a new machine to do after that. Any suggestions? We have a stair master, treadmill, stationary bike and the eliptical.

April_Showers 06-21-2005 07:55 AM

Breakfastsurreal- Don't push it too hard. I would stick to no more than 30-40 minutes on any machine....now that i have been working out consistantly for the last 6 weeks it gets easy when i get to minute 25 or so. Its good to do multiple machines or switch it(maybe get an aerobics tape) up every once in a while, your body will be surprised and will thank you.

JustForUs 06-21-2005 08:08 AM

Breakfastsurreal~ I would try to switch up machines, I usually have to switch every 3 rd day or so. Usually I get stuck in a plateau then I swtich to treadmill or stair master. I never feel like I push on the other machines because eliptical is my choice of machines.
Tuesday work out 15 mins cardio 20 mins abs/sticks lower body weights 20 mins

WastedThermos 06-21-2005 09:02 AM

Monday - 32min cardio on the arc trainer
3sets upperbody strength training

I'm so glad I went! Mondays always seem to end up being part of my 'oops I forgot to workout' weekend.

lizzbabe 06-21-2005 12:54 PM

Breakfastsurreal~ You might also try mixing it up within one workout like 10 min on each machine (treadmill, bike, stairs, elliptical) and really pushing yourself on each one. then you've gone for a total of 40 minutes but it won't seem that bad. worth a shot.

anyway today I did 30 min lower body weights, 15 min stairmaster @ level 10 and 20 min recumbent bike with random program.

breakfastsurreal 06-21-2005 04:23 PM

good idea! thanks for the suggestions ladies! Going to go workout now and switch it up some! I'll check in when I get back!!!

breakfastsurreal 06-21-2005 05:14 PM

Ok just got back...I did 15 min on the eliptical, then 10 on the stationary bike, then tried to do the stairmaster, but it felt really unnatural and had this really annoying cranking sound/feel to it, so i did that for only 2 mins, then walked at a 3.6mph pace on the treadmill for 10 mins...so 35 mins! woot! I'm hoping this changing it up thing will give me more results!

jennie934 06-21-2005 05:52 PM

They suggest we do jumping jacks during circuit training, but it kills my knees! Anyone else have this problem with jumping jacks?

jkg0679 06-21-2005 08:39 PM

Tuesday - Walked for 30 minutes (probably about a mile & a half).

I am thinking about starting to lift my fiance's 5lb weights as well. I noticed a slight bulge in my bicep that has never been there before and now I am excited to tone it even more! I think I got this much from lifting my 5 year old daughter.

WastedThermos 06-21-2005 11:10 PM

I need to change it up a bit and get back to the treadmill for some but I REALLY want to finish this book and I only allow myself to read it on the exercise bike. I should be done tomorrow so I can go back to my normal routine.

Wednesday-nothing because I'm a big klutzy loser and fell over my curb getting my newspaper and really tore my hand up. I can just now bend it enough to type or do anything really. Duh!

Thursday-1 hour exercise bike

paperclippy 06-24-2005 09:32 AM

timed mile run, personal record of 11:04!
10 mins stairmaster, half level 2, half level 3
abs on incline:
10 regular
10 each side
10 reverse

I am obsessed with doing my crunches on an incline. You wouldn't BELIEVE the difference it has made. The other day I went back to the floor to do some reverse crunches during my circuit training class, and it was a breeze! Even though a little while ago I was struggling. Seriously, 10 crunches on the incline is worth 50 on the floor.

jkg0679 06-24-2005 09:56 AM

Thrusday Update - Well, after I posted last night, I wound up doing some pushups and some bicep curls. Not a lot, but better than nothing! ;)
