Sunrose 02-04-2009 01:34 AM

Hi everyone,

I just wanted you all to know that I am here, but having trouble setting a personal goal for the month. I am so afraid of failure - I suck! I have only exercised for 35 minutes so far (that was on Sunday) but I promise to get my butt in gear tomorrow! So, that brings our group total to 3911, but I'm not sure about my personal goals yet - hope that's okay!

Group total = 3911 (If I ever do the math wrong, feel free to correct me!)

nellibabyy 02-04-2009 05:50 PM

I have similar violent thoughts about the 2 OH SO CHEERFUL ladies that do "Yoga Booty Ballet" or whatever that is I just stumbled through. They must be animatronics or something. Nobody is THAT cheerful about exercising.

75 + 30 / 105 PERSONAL

I Did 15 min. treadmill for warmup, then a 60 minute bootcamp class. It kicked my butt but it feels skinnier! lol.

Yesterday I did:

20 min of sit-ups = 200 sit-ups
15 min of walking = almost a full mile
30 min of lifting to rearrange the house

Today I did:

10 min of sit-ups = 100 sit-ups

Equaling 75 total minutes so far...

I think I've lost another pound since yesterday! I worked out and ate the right things so I didn't have a lot of calories involved. I ate A LOT for around 1050 calories.

I had:

1 cup cheerios
.5 cup milk
1 nonfat yogurt
1 kiwi
1 turkey sandwich that included -
2 slices sourdough bread
3 ounces lettuce
.5 tablespoon low-calorie mayonnaise
2 tomato slices
4 slices turkey deli meat
(total of 350 calories just from sandwich!)
1 turkey hot dog
1 bun
.5 tablespoon catchup
1 cup grapes
1 pickle
1 hundred calorie chocolate ice cream bar

Just for 1050 calories!! :carrot: :hug: :high: :broc:

I've been doing sit-ups, but I may stop doing regular on the floor sit-ups for awhile because yesterday I could barely move. I'll try another type of ab work today though. I'll figure out some non-hurtful things to do. :dizzy:

Rainlady 02-07-2009 12:17 AM

Excellent ladies keep working!




katiecron 02-07-2009 11:39 AM

mauvaisroux 02-07-2009 05:19 PM

Way to go exercisers! :cp:

I am up to 15 minutes on the bike twice a day. some stretches and a few yoga poses. At the moment that is all I am allowed to do until further notice from my doctor.

nellibabyy 02-07-2009 07:33 PM

today was my well deserved day off from the gym, but i raked my front lawn free of twigs for about 45 min. so that still counts. good ab workout!

I've been doing sit-ups, but I may stop doing regular on the floor sit-ups for awhile because yesterday I could barely move. I'll try another type of ab work today though. I'll figure out some non-hurtful things to do.

i have some good ab workouts that are intense but non-hurtful for your back.

-get in position to do a crunch, but let your knees fall apart to the sides. (looks awkward, but just go with it lol)
-keep one hand behind your head, and do a crunch, reaching with the other hand towards your feet X20
-Without stopping, stay in the same position but reach with your free hand toward the ceiling for 20 reps.
-Still not stopping, move your free arm up by your head so it's touching your ear. Go for 20 more reps.
-Switch arms and do it again on the other side!

It sounds kind of complicate but it works amazingly!

Another of my faves:

-bring both knees bent 90 degrees up off the ground.
-keeping your knees together, let them fall to one side.
-do crunches in this position, as many as you want.
-switch sides.

this really works the obliques, and you can really feel your muscles working.

hope these may help you out a little bit! keep up the good work!
