Argh. I was running late again this morning, so I only got in half a workout. 20 mins treadmill (200) and 10 mins UBWO. Grrrrr.

My gym is going to be CLOSED for the next week!!! How dreadful is that?!

The college gym will be open for a couple of hours a day, so I might do that, OR, I might take the plunge and go and buy the bike I want. Or both. I just think the gym shouldn't be allowed to close for an entire week....

I wish I had y'alls dedication. I haven't posted in here because I have had a major lack of motivation and pretty much have given up on ever being thin again. Then I was watching The Biggest Loser previwes online last night, and reading some posts here on 3FC and for whatever reason, FORCED myself to get off my *** and exercise. Not to mention I have been one moody B-werd for the past week...I so wanna be like Ilene, Manda, baffled, and so many more. You are all my exercise heros. For real.

2 Miles- WATP's and some ball chest and tummy things.

I think I am going to take my exercise ticker down. Its just depressing me, since there is no way to meet my time goals (I can only do arm lifting, and doing that every day is counterproductive to building muscle, so my time is cut in half).

This is very sad :-(

Mandalinn and Diva

Diva...I go thru the same thing. I will do great and then just lose my motivation. Then something snaps and I am back at it again. SO don't give up missy! Never, ever give up!

Couldn't go for my walk this morning. Woke up to rain so did my 2 mile WATP twice. Thought I would mix it up a bit. I don't want to get bored with exercising, or walking so...I may do a mile on the treadmill as well, later. We'll see how the rest of the day goes. I don't want to push myself too much either for fear of getting tired of it all.

Poor Diva! Poor Amanda!

Diva, no waiting around for motivation. Move, move, move, move, move!!! But good job getting back on track.

Amanda, can't you at least go for walks? Or swim? I feel for you. When is the surgery slated for?

Good job Gary!

Got in my 3 miles this morning and...the 2 mile WATP! Feeling good about that. But...I was dragging for sure. Guess not getting up early the last two days made me lazy, lol.

Keep on truckin' ladies and gents!

Hey! Where is everybody? I can't be the only one who exercised today!

33 mins treadmill (300)
UBWO (128)


I worked out at the college gym today because my Y is closed this week. I don't really like working out at the college gym--too many students--but it really is a super-nice facility. It's only a year old and they bought really expensive cardio and weight machines. Individual tvs on every treadmill and elliptical, tons of customizable features, shiny weights, pristine benches... And it's free. It is just too bad about the darn students!

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Surgery can't be scheduled until September 13th - meaning I have 2 more weeks, PLUS a 4 week recovery at least, until I can do cardio again.

I
Am
So
Bothered.

Rationally, yes, we need to let the knee heal, we need to rest, whatever. But literally, the thought of 6 cardio-free weeks still ahead of me just reduced me to tears for a good 5 min. I believe that exercise is truly (in a good way!) addictive...the idea of being without it for 6 weeks (no adrenaline highs! no feeling strong and powerful on the elliptical! no stomping out aggression!) is really really upsetting to me.

Amanda, you can do upper body weights as cardio. Seriously, split up your upper body muscle groups into as many days as you want to go to the gym (example: shoulders, back, chest, and bi's & tri's for a four day split). Then do your exercises 1. intensively (lift heavy), 2. take very little rest between sets (15 - 30 seconds) 3. superset (two exercises in a row with no rest) and 4. throw in an exercise like 10 pushups, crunches, or bench dips between each set. I guarantee you'll get your heart rate right up to where it would be doing cardio.
