December Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

ok someone go ahead & kick me (i know ceradad - it' will take you 2 seconds to do so...)

i canceled my training appt today. was NOT in the mood to lift and not in the mood for much of anything. rode my horse for a while this morning, and may go for a walk around the ranch with the dogs later today.

need to shake the crappy feeling, i know maybe hitting the weights would have helped - just wasn't up for leaving the house today. pitiful i know!

ok - complaining over.

jachut - i prefer interval cardio myself. i'll look into the dowload for the ipod - thanks.

Little longer than 2 seconds, but here it is.

You are correct, lifting would help alleviate the depression, but I won't be too hard on you.

Soft touch I know. But sometimes that is all you need.

lu...there have been times I have gone to the gym & sat in my car fighting with myself b/c I didn't feel like doing anything physical. After a few minutes of reasoning I usually go in & end up having the best workout ever.

What I say to myself to make me go in is "if I go home all I'll end up doing is eating & laying". Sometimes that works sometimes I head for fast food! :)

Has a STRESSFUL day today - came home from work and just wanted to lay around and eat, then sleep. I ate dinner, and an hour later, I forced myself to go for Tae Kwondo class. I can tell you now I am SO glad I went!! Just my daily check in!! :tt1:

Good morning Warriors,

Checking in...went to the gym last night for the first time in waaaay too long. I have been walking (mornings with DDog) and at lunchtime, but after my "just" 1 pound loss last week, I decided to get my butt in gear, or as Jachut would say, I shut my gob and decided to move my ass...:lol:

30 minutes on the ArcTrainer elliptical (doesn't use arms, but burns the legs) and another 20 minutes on the treadmill, using speed increases and incline increases to form my own workout.

I think I'll check out the cardio coach and mp3 downloads - I KNOW I need to do aerobics for my heart (since I've had some troubles and it runs in my family) but I would rather lift weights. I don't do it fast enough to count as "circuit" training, so aerobics will continue to be a part of my routine.

Nice reading everyone's posts - those of you who are regulars really inspire me, and a big welcome to all those joining the challenge for the first time. Though I'm not the strongest or the fastest, I've been MUCH more consistent since posting my workouts on this thread. Even if all I do is walk I will do THAT every day so I don't feel like a slacker...:)

ebony - i just love your upbeat posts and they have been very appreciate this past wk...

so back in the gym this AM, i can totally see how you can get off track & out of routine if your not consistent about exercise.

not kicking & screaming - but not excited i met my trainer; he was kind to me...didn't kill me that much.

i had my measurements & BF checked today....creeping along; lost inches in my arms & waist only along with a drop of .4% body fat - catching up ceradad, @ 18.8% right now.

so today -

3 mile bike warm up

50 min trainer session - resistance / weights / core; lower weights today

2 mile run

have a good day all~

Wednesday i did Cardio Coach vol 6 on the treadmill - 55 minutes of vomit inducing hill and sprint intervals - I was very impressed with myself, last time I did this one, was about 9 months ago, my recovery speed was 4.5 mph, my sprint speed 5.5. This time, I recovered on 5.5 mph and did the sprints at 8mph, and even manaed 8 mph with an incline of 5 for a couple of 60 second sprints.

Yesterday i did a really hard circuit again, my treadmill sessions were 40 seconds at 8mp, 20 seconds at 5mp, five times. Had 4 treadmill bits, and the rest weights, the whole thing lasted an hour. Felt sick as a dog, took a good couple of hours to recover. Realised that I've done 3 hard hard workouts 3 days in a row and was perhaps in need of some recovery now. So that night I went for an 8km walk with doug :wink:

Fell asleep at 8.30 pm, didnt budge till 8 am this morning. Having a day off today.

I've done super duper well with trying to eat 5 times a day and include more Protein to fuel this though.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
