Hi everyone!

I'm fairly new to 3FC -- my intro's posted here:

http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=120517

I hope you all don't mind me posting here to keep me accountable. School starts for me tomorrow and it's been known to keep me "too busy to work out"...but I want that to change! My goal is at least 30 mins cardio 3x a week and strength training at least 2x a week. That's been my plan during maintenance and it has been working really well. I would love to be able to run more days but I get burned out so easily. Anyway, I hope to be posting here at least 2x more this week!

I did really good this weekend, we did a 4 mile hike on Saturday and Sunday I did 30 minutes of weights and also a 4 mile walking tape at home. Now today I'm feeling pretty tired and my bad knee is sore <sigh>. Who knows if I'll be motivated to do anything this evening.

Grrrrr. I didn't make it to the gym today. The stupid college gym is only open from 12-5 this week, which is the absolute worst possible time. I'll go tomorrow though, come **** or high water.

Amanda, yay you for doing a good UBWO! Do you have a HRM? When I run, I usually hang out around 155, which is about 85% for me. When I lift weights, I usually find myself between 135 and 150. This is NOT the same intensity as running, but it IS in the high end of the 'fat burning' zone and the low end of my cardio zone. This means that even if it doesn't *feel* like cardio, your body really is getting, say, 80% of the benefit of cardio. And that is soooooooooo much better than nothing!

31 mins treadmill (300)
LBWO (90)

I did *real* squats in the cage for the first time today! Hooray! I started light, with 10lb plates on each side, but I'm pleased with myself Anyone know the weight of those bars? It seemed pretty heavy by itself.
