purplemonkey wow!! that is awesome! great job. i loathed the elliptical at first but then realized how many cals it burned and put up with it. now i do interval training (2 mins INTENSE elliptical (170+ RPM), 1 set of 10-20 on weights, back to intense elliptical and make it a vicious cycle... but you know ... it WORKS!! totally kicks my rear, but just awesome loss (over 8 pounds since Saturday the 5th of May!!!!!!) it was the kick i needed. i havent been losing too well lately and this was incredible. best of luck to you!

Losinjusme-I wish my gym offered Tai Chi too. A lot of karate studios offer it....That's where I go for mine. I'm amazed how that peaceful slow motion can be such a killer work out!

Pigged out at Mothers Day lunch yesterday. Was going to just go to Tai Chi tonight, but I'm on my way out now to add a workout to compensate for yesterday...Didn't eat quantity but ate all the wrong things and loved it.

Thanks for your postive words Losingjusme. I don't do interval training but I do mix things up on the treadmill. I break it down into 10 min segments and within each 10 min I will do 4 min at 2.5mph (my fastest possible speed, lol) with a 2.5% incline. Then I'll do 2 min at 2.0mph and 2% incline and then the last 4 minutes I do a 2.0mph with a 10% incline. It's one hell of a workout I can tell you, and changing it up like this pushed me right through the plateau I had been struggling through... Wish my legs weren't so noodly afterward, though. :eek:

Keep up the great work! Sounds like the interval training is just what you needed.

can I add my two cents.

I am totally addicated to the circuit workout at Planet Fitness

Its only 30 min but the trainers make you move.

I do this for 30min everyday after working a 10 hour shift. then walk around the parking lot to cool down

I do 24 hour too. I love their 24 lift class, but the first time, it practically killed me...for days and days. I had no idea I was getting that much of a workout! It seemed so reasonable at the time! I like 24 hour because when I get bored, I can always go do something new. I also found that it helps to put just a touch of instant coffee in my morning Protein Shake before I work out..... I've been off all caffeine, but just a tad helps.
