... I am losing track of the days... so I will use the month/date... here is what I have been doing:

August 2... Monday... Strength training w/ Jari Love "Extreme Ripped"...



www.collagevideo.com/workout-video/j
ari-loves-get-extremely-ripped-5625


... what a workout... it is a grueling, full-body workout, but fun... the music rocks emoticon and it pushes me through those 100 squats (... maybe not 100, but it is close)... there is a guy doing squats and he is practically on the floor, he squats so low... he motivates me... emoticon... I used 3, 4 & 5lb weights... all are compound exercises making the movements more difficult... emoticon, but I can see where it will pay off if I can keep this up... I will of course have to rotate this with a much kinder, gentler strength training workout, so that I don't burn out... This workout is based on low to moderate weight and "high reps"... I am surprised that I can still walk today... I feel sore, but nothing that will stop me from doing strength training tomorrow.... My goal is to do at least 2 - 3 strength workouts per week...

Time: 56:46
In zone: 21:56 (most of the time in the "RED ZONE)
HR: 129/169 / 77/101%
Calories: 347 / fat burned: 35%

** ** **

August 1... AM Sunday... Cardio... Petra Kolber Step Rhythm & Moves
Step Aerobics...
Time: 52:42
In zone: 51:50
HR: 133/150 / 80/90%
Calories burned: 344 / 45% fat



... an oldie but goodie... this is a VHS tape... I wish that it was in dvd format... oh well, I will enjoy it while it last... if anyone has any ideas how I can copy this vhs to dvd format, please help!!!! I have a few workouts I would love to preserve... Anyway, this workout is intermediate level. Petra is very engaging and I really like her because she is a cancer survivor and very uplifting... she is also on Fittv and I have taped some of her recent shows...

** ** **

Saturday: ... July 31... Walked but didn't keep track, couldn't find my HR monitor emoticon ... walked 60 minutes with Leslie Sansone (dvd)... NOTE: found HR monitor (watch) in a pile of laundry... so glad that I found it before I

** ** **

... cardio planned for this evening...

    DH and I went for a walk on the boardwalk last night. The weather was breezy and humid, but there was a band set up, loads of people in the water surfing and playing, people running kites... What a great evening. Keep up the GREAT work.

... This is a great workout... my ankles are feeling great, and I am not doing anything crazy, but I can do the workout the way l want to!... I love her heavy bag section... I am going to have to take a picture of the heavy bag set up that I thought up... I have a tall radiator in my bedroom, and I got a large pillow case and stuffed it with a couple of pillows and put it on top of the radiator... the pillows inside of the pillow case, sit on top of the radiator and I pull the open end of the pillow case over the sides of the radiator so that it is stationary... it works pretty good emoticon ... I am going to draw a face on it ... "make it more realistic... emoticon emoticon...

... tomorrow I think that I am going to take a long walk with Leslie (.. Sansone) emoticon... I need to balance my workouts where I am not working out too hard every day... like an "active rest"

emoticon... meet you here tomorrow... emoticonbring your walking shoes... emoticon ~ Dee ~ emoticon

    Dee,

I love the pictures with the cows. My grandfather had a dairy farm when we were growing up and I now collect cows. It's my kitchen theme and my daughter just hates it when I get something cow, LOL! Love you for sharing these wonderful pictures.

I've had so much energy this week since I started eating more, and surprisingly, I actually feel less bloated... emoticon... I wonder why?... I am eating more, but feel lighter

... so today I decided to do some weight training and cardio... I started out with Kelly Coffey-Meyer's 30 minutes - Weights and did her 30 minute premix of weights combined with 2 minute cardio intervals...



www.coffeyfit.com/catalog/CoffeyFit_
30Minutes_Preview.mpg


I used 7lbs for all exercises; this is what she recommends...

... I followed up with cardio... I did a little kickboxing with Amy Bento's In the Ring workout... I did 2 cardio intervals without the medicine ball... I love this workout and Amy's style..

    Sounds great Dee. Have you started the carb cycling? Maybe you are feeling less bloated because you are eating more healthy. Well whatever it is, keep up the great work.
