Recommended Posts

o gosh im such a moroon! still posting on Nov thread.

You guys Have to remind me!

Me too! I am so effective at being an idiot sometimes! LOL I was wondering where you were, JM!

Thanks for the compliment, WHOS...much appreciated! I'm not afraid I'll get big and muscle-bound...I know it's not physically possible for women unless steroids are involved like you said. I do want some serious "girl muscle", though! But I am proud to say that my arms are getting really lean and the biceps and triceps are starting to get some real definition! It's paying off! Now if my thighs would just respond the same...many womens' nemesis.

Did an hour and a half at the gym today on biceps/triceps after 120 crunches. 52 miles on the bike....legs are SO SORE from the gym Tuesday, or I would have gone further.

52 miles, holy crap! You are my hero....I am not worthy!!!!!!

But really, I'm hoping to get back to spin class saturday, but I've been saying that for about a month now. We'll see what happens.

You're so silly! But seriously, I need to keep up my distance if I'm going to make that 150 mile ride in May. It's not my legs I worry about, but how long I can stay in the saddle.

Yeah, you need to get your behind back to spin class, missy! I need to sign up for one of those to see what that's all about. I hear so many people on this site talk about it, but I've never seen one.

You're doing good with your trainer, though! I have a couple of questions. How do you like working out with a trainer? What all do they do for/with you? Is this a long-term thing for you, or are you getting an education on what to do then going on your own? From what I understand, a lot of people always use a trainer, but I'm just foreign to it, I guess. I signed up with one then cancelled when I hooked up with my workout partner. He's even more addicted than I am, knows tons and pushes me to do more and makes sure I do the moves right. If I couldn't work out with him, I'd consider getting a trainer for sure, depending on what you think. (You're the only person I know of with one.)

I actually really love my trainer because she'll answer any question that I have about exercise and food, but we've become friendly so while I'm working out we talk about other things, and I don't really feel like I'm working out, even though I'm dripping with sweat. And it makes me accountable. Even though I've been a complete slacker lately, I still make it twice a week to see her. And she always asks me what else I've done, cardio etc, and what I'm eating, etc. She also asks about other things going on in my life, that I would never think it would contribute to overall health, like how many hours I've slept.

If you have a workout partner that you enjoy working with, don't give that up. All the exercises we do, are really basic things. One week we'll use the weight machines at the gym, other weeks we'll grab 3lb, 5lb, and 8lb weights and do all kinds of things. The toughest weeks are when we're working with free weights and she makes me do, say, bicep curls for 1 minute with 8lb weights, 1 minute with 5lb weights, then 1 minute with 3lb weights. Its HARD!!!!!! On the machines, she'll make me do an exercise for 5 minutes. I would have never thought to time myself like this. I used to do 3 sets of 12, or the like. And pushups and bicycle crunches. Real pushups, on your toes. Jeezzzz. But these are all things that I could do on my own, I just don't have the motivation, as you can see by my lack of cardio!!!!!!!!!!!

Good to see everyone is staying so active ;)

I on the other hand have taken some time off. My ankle is just too bad to risk exercise right now. I can't see a doc till next week because of money so I'm stuck for awhile. But it's okay I tell myself. Just a bump in the road. Although secretly I'm a bit panicked about not exercising. Anyways..I'm hoping to get some exercise bands for xmas and some dumb bells so I can start strength training in the mornings a bit when my kid is still asleep. Pleaseee Santa!..lol

O Gosh im sick as a dog. Sinus infection i think. Nice big green things coimng out of every where.

As im poorly i cut it back to exerciseing every other day. Yesterday i ran two miles plus a 5 min walk warm up. Lifted weights for 45mins and swam for 20mins. O gosh the hot tub felt good.

Glad to see you really going at it Stef. Wish i had a workout partner. Maybe one day.

Well my kids want to swim at the Ymca today so maybe ill end up at the gym anyway.

I saw my doc and her wrote my up some kind of penciilan. Its frustrating he NEVER remembers i have a band. At the pharmacy they give the the biggest pills i have ever seen! Ahhhhhh.

Hey everyone, what an encuragement you all are. I have been going back to the gym for about three weeks now. last week i was 3/5 days weight training and the eliptical. 2/5 days did my elliptical at home. This week I am 5/5 days elliptical and weight training. 125 ab crunches daily for 3/5 days. I am doing interval training on the elliptical for 30 minutes cool down for 5 and I am burning between 350-400 calories. Today I hit 406. I was totally siked. I am trying to start my passion for exercise again, before school starts back. I am loving how I am beginning to feel. I am excited about the exercise this month. Good luck to everyone. I just have to say that everyone is doing awesome. What a great thread! It's really nice to talk about the exercise.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
