Hey girls - week 2/day 3 down. As in the first two weeks, day 3 is my favorite. Wonder why that is? Anyway I was so much better at my mtn. climberrs today albeit modified with hands on bench instead floor. Believe me, it is still excruciating. I could do 30 sec., jog in place 15, and then finish up with 15 more sec. Jumping jacks aren't my thing, too jarring, or maybe I am a weinie, I hop on the treadmill at 3.5 mph at 5.5 incline. I figure those modifications are ok as it is what I can do.

This is a fat burning workout - my body was so ready for this shake up. I am getting some great cumulative results, I'm finally in a pair of 501 levis I bought over 2 years ago as goal pants. You can tell I have been up and down the scale in the last 2 years, but I am so confident now and it feels great.

OK, back to the grind after being sick. I am not sure what I had, but am leaning towards possible ear infection since equilibrium was way off.

Anyhow, today I did Week 4, Day 1. I tried to be careful because I was sick, but I still did 63 minutes. I kept my heart rate up also. So far, so good!

63 min is AWESOME! I'm glad you're feeling better Emma!

Today I am getting back on track.. and I'm going to exercise! I'll restart week 3 on monday. I hope everyone is sweating!

This is my first post here. I have not started Jillian's workout program as I just got the book, but I have been running and going to the gym for about 6 months now. Yesterday I ran 3.7K with my running club and today I will run around 4.7K with my running clinic.

ledom 11-10-2005 12:14 PM

Welcome m2a, glad to have you here. The exercise you are doing now will be a good start for the Jillian workout. Glad folks are back on track, over illnesses, etc.

Just finished workout 4 of week 3. Tomorrow I am going paddling for my cardio. It isn't that intense, but it is endurance, will paddle much longer than an hour. I just have to go one more time before my trip and while the weather is still nice.

I will be out of town until the 22nd, leaving on Sat., and won't have access to a gym. I am taking bands, yoga mat, and will do some walking and even some hiking if I have time. I guess I'll just pick up where I left off when I get home. Will do a final check in tomorrow before leaving.

Today was my rest day, but I ending up doing 30 mins of cardio, which was ok, until I was getting tired.. but I made it.

Yesterday was day 5 of week 2...today is cardio. Cardio is easy....

Ledom - I'm a weenie, too with the jumping jacks and the jump rope. Part of my problem is that I can't find a good place in the gym to do them. I feel like I'm in the way wherever I go...so I just do extra cardio after.

Mrs.T 11-10-2005 09:53 PM

50 min of cardio today and the period from **** has descended upon me.. ugh.

Emma - I think you said you're doing this program at home, right? If you are, I was wondering what kind of modifications you are using? For example, I'm starting tomorrow and I need to do leg extensions. I was thinking maybe sitting on the couch and lifting a weight with my legs? I'm actually more worried about the cable pulls/lat pulldowns for tomorrow. I'd love any tips. Thanks! :)

Looking4TheWayOut 11-11-2005 10:35 AM

My last post didn't show up. This is a test one.

chick_in_the_hat 11-11-2005 02:17 PM

Had a nice long walk with the dog yesterday....today is another rest day - then it's on to Week 3.... :yikes: :fr:

Daisy Boo 11-12-2005 07:40 AM

hi girls

happydaisy - i do the workout at home also. for the leg extensions i did just sit on a chair and lean back slightly and extend my legs in front of me to hip level. it works!

for the pull downs - as i haven't a pull down machine at home - i simply did the move (without weights) while standing. I belive it did work as i could feel it in my upper back. i just contracted all my muscles on the pull down which while it was not the full move with weight, still had an effect.

hope this helps.

Mrs.T 11-12-2005 11:00 AM

No exercise yesterday, I'm still cramping. I'm SO glad I decided to wait till Monday to restart....

Looking4TheWayOut 11-12-2005 04:39 PM

Jillian recommended exercise bands to me for the back exercises. It is the pull down (and how hard you have to pull down) that gives you the benefit. Mocking the movement will do nothing.

chick_in_the_hat 11-12-2005 08:36 PM

OK - today I started week three workouts....mountain climbers :censored: ....ok let's just say I felt like the gym floor was shaking....I wussed out. :o I added extra cardio at the end. The rest of it was ok - it's getting easier - but I always feel challenged (to say the least). I forgot my HRM in the locker and I'm thinking maybe I was too focused on it. I might try just pushing myself as much as I can instead of feeling like I'm failing because I'm not over 70% most of the time. Maybe it's cause I keep wussing out on the cardio stuff (jumping jacks and mountain clibers) she sneaks in there.
