TGIF!
Hope everyone is up for a good weekend!

My food has been good all week and I've focused on strategically timing my use of metabolism boosters (green coffee extract pills and raspberry ketones). I've peeked at the scale recently, and I think that I'm finally getting the scale to move a bit faster this week. Let's see what my number is on Sunday morning.

I didn't get much activity yesterday, other than exercising my fingers on the computer. I'm considering yesterday a rest day. My joints were achy and I had a hard time getting the momentum to get to the park again yesterday.

Got to get my rear in gear and moving!

Have a good day everyone - and a wonderful weekend!
Naughty

I will type more when I get the kids in bed tonight and can get on a real computer.

LJ:
I've collected a lot of exercise DVD's and have a library of Jillian Michael's, Bob Harper's and various dance DVD's. I just need to get them out of the cases and use them, lol.

You could break up the level 3 Slim in 6 for multiple days (by body parts?). Are you aiming for a cardio workout in the early, body parts/circuits? I plan on using some of my DVD's in the near term and will let you know.

Some possible options to consider are: resistence band workout, kettle bell workout and dancing workout. If you had some bluetooth device, you could perhaps send the sound to some headphones. I know that once some folks get used to some dvd's they turn down the volumn and use music from an ipod or similar device.

Joy- I am looking forward to WARMER weather! So cold and it is supposed to snow/flurry this Sunday. Hopefully we will be all done with snow when April starts. I believe we will be doing so much better with keeping track and workouts once the cold is gone. Good for you on keeping up on both!

Munchey- I have a workout trampoline and I love it (I think it is gold gym brand with a counter but I never attached the counter on it.) I originally bought it for doing the 30 Day Shred's jumping jacks when I was living in an apartment on the top floor and didn't want to bother my downstairs neighbors too much. Since I've moved in my new house, it has been in the basement collecting dust for the last 8 months. Thank you for the reminder- I need to take it out and start utilizing it somehow, lol. Admittedly sometimes I get scared jumping on it cuz I have very bad ankles that like to roll under me so I am very conscious while jumping on it.

LJ- I love Slim in 6 but loathe the length of it, haha! I was gonna suggest 30 day shred but see that you already do it. I don't have any other suggestions, sorry! Balance balls and resistance bands/weights are pretty quiet and can be pretty hardcore if you really work it. I found some workout lists online for free and they took about 30 minutes to complete, although it took 45 minutes to an hour in the beginning because I was still learning all the moves and the right forms, etc.

Sinderelly- You sound incredibly busy!!! You are doing great on keeping up on the eating part. Do try your best to get a work-out in, even if it's just once a week for up to 30 minutes! It can help alleviate some of the stress which I am sure you are experiencing? I know I would be!
___________________________________

Happy Friday all!! I am seriously considering joining a gym OR buying a treadmill because I really want to do the C25K program. I have always wanted to be a runner. For now, I will just use my elliptical trainer and weights/resistance bands although I need to find the weights/rb workout routine or maybe I can still find it online if I can remember where.

I am still up in weight a bit but I think that is from salty food (went out to eat on Wednesday) and my bro cooked last night (he likes to add a ton of salty seasonings) so I am downing water a bit more to flush it out. I also worked out that Wednesday night. I will do 15-30 minutes on the trainer today to keep up with my personal goal of working out 3x a week.

We will start out with a little kick in the rear:



If that doesn't work, we will step it up to this:

Thanks! Amandie- ugh stress... YES! LOL.
Munchie- I needed that! Hopefully it works.

I try to go up and down the stairs as much as I can while at work (our file room and bathrooms are in the basement of work) and at home.. I need to get back to doing 30 day shred. Today I noticed how much smaller I am getting..and it really made me feel good.. need to kick it up a notch.

HEY CAMPERS!
Good luck with your goal (s) check in!

We need to keep moving forward. If you fall off the path, even more reason to stay in camp. You don't fail until you give up.

We can do this!

HI EVERYONE!
Well, I get to face the scale in the morning. I had to take a rest day today in order to give my right knee a rest. I had a tough time doing my walk at the park yesterday and had a lot of pain in the evening. I think the misstep I took by stepping in a hole at the park last week may have caused a bit of an injury.

I've been trying to work through the pain, but yesterday was a signal to pull back a bit. My focus today was icing, advil and giving my knee a rest. Hopefully tomorrow will be better

DANGEROUS:
I hope you stocked up on the sunshine today, so that you will endure the snow storm. I hope you enjoyed the company at the Oyster Fest. I'd have to admit that I definitely wouldn't have a binge eating episode with oysters, even if they were covered in chocolate, lol.


SINDERELLY:
I sure could have used some of your energy today.


AMANDIE:
We are going to have to hide the salt shaker from your bro. Maybe you could get him to use lite salt or some of the great saltless seasonings

My actuals for 3-17-13 thru 3-23-13 are:
Current Weight: 225 (Come on two teens)
LOSS: 3 pound
MILES: 25
DVDS: Did not meet

WHAT WENT WELL:
I did well with my food this week and was consistent with taking metabolism supplements (green coffee and raspberry ketones). I'm doing better at getting up at or around 6:00 a.m. I got in a couple of epsom salt baths this week (helped a little at bedtime).

IMPROVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Get alternate exercise when knees aren't up to a long walk at the park
Use exercise DVD's & reflex boxing.
Continue to work on getting up earlier in the morning - Target time 6:00 a.m
Sleep target - 8 hours of quality sleep (need to limit # of time I wake up & manage pain better)
Take an epsom salt & lavender bath before bedtime this week.
Improve my timing on doing things at the best time of day
Get in 30 minutes of some type of aerobics before breakfast each day
Continue to work on getting this metabolism jump started!
Ration computer time - balance exercise with stock market monitoring


My goals for the week 3-24-13 thru 3-30-13 are:

Weight loss Goal= 2 lbs.
Walking Goal = 30 miles
Exercise Body Parts = DVD's - One 30 minute session a day

Mid-term goal: Get to one-der-land by 6-30-13 (199 or less)
Long-term goal: 140 lbs.
