Oo-rah- did my interval training tape - 40 minutes - thank heavens it's almost all lower body toning in between the aerobic intervals --

WTG, Carmen - Star is going to whip us into shape!

I submit - fully! I want to be "above average fit" for my age too! What an accomplishment.

Default Morning Chicks....

Last night (jazzercise). It was fun and I noticed it really makes me sweat. I'll take that is a good sign.

Today - gym - (circuit train) - 45 minutes
- 10 minutes - really to talk to my friend, who I'm trying to hookup with another friend

Jen - isn't it nice having other fit chick posters in the yard.......

It is great to see more fit chicks in the yard!!! Keep up the great work! I only got in a couple of miles last night, still trying to get ready to go out of town for work and prepare house for family coming to town this weekend.

Boy - am I feeling it in my arms (still from SUNDAY) and in my abs -- today the plan is a yoga tape, I think -- or maybe pilates, or maybe both . .. after I WI. I'm still up - I guess my muscles are retaining water?? Or I'm still suffering from weekend sodium. . . yuck.

I'm feeling a bit sluggish today, not sure if it was the workout or what . I can't think of any other reason it could be. I DO know that yesterday after working out I was all energized and that is the first time a workout made me feel that way. I think the difference was that I paid close attention to the heart rate monitor and kept my rate in the "cardio" range. Any other time it would be way too high. Its just hard to believe that I could actually get a good workout without being winded to the point of hyperventilation (which is what I'm used to experiencing during a workout). So today at 1:45 there is a yoga class. I think I am going to try it. Wish me luck, my balance is a real joke!

Carmen, I LOVE it that you are already trying new and different types of exercise. It is my opinion, that will help keep your interest and ward off boredom Besides how else will you know what you like and don't like in torture - this way you can pick....

Julie - I just love it when I feel soreness It's a sure way to tell you have worked those lazy little muscles

Thanks Star, I hope I am able to keep up with it. Okay, I went to yoga and ran into one of my favorite people of all time. We got caught up a bit. About the class...it was REALLY challenging! I can't balance at all. Its a wonder I can walk upright. I felt like such a klutz. BUT the instructor told me I did well for my first time, and she urged me to come back. I think I'll go back. The class reminded me a lot of pilates. It was really tough, and my arms got a real workout.

Carmen - Yoga is very hard at first it works your muscles in a different way than say cardio.....it makes them stronger. It is therefore similar to pilates, building your core muscles. Even jazzercise has some pilates type moves in it now, they are still hard for me......I'm glad you liked it and you'll go again (thats water)

Carmen, I am groaning in recognition -- I did a yoga tape, too - I thought it was supposed to be relaxing -- I have movement-challenged-anxiety. . . And some of the poses are held long enough so that my muscles start to shake. I'm going to take Star's words to heart -- it's just that those poor muscles aren't used to this type of action. . .

Today's goal is more cardio and back to arms - they've stopped aching, so they're ready for more action . ..

going to cardio-karate this evening.

I can't work out the way i useto with this new job, so I am looking to getting some cardio DVD's and doing cardio at home 4-5 times a week and going to my class on Wed nights.

I'll have to put weight training on hold until later, plus since they won't take me off of blue, at least I can work out enough to stay hungry enough to eat all of that meat

I like crunch fitness DVD's so I ordered 2 of them and the carme electra striptease one (i couldn't resist) I also got a cardio dance, a Shrinking Women's fat zone one and pilates.

I have blockbuster on-line, so I am just ordering the DVD's and burning a copy at home and sending them back (so it won't cost me much)

Anybody know of any good DVD's out there?
