I'm having a hard time getting this in considering the training I'm also doing for my first 5K (which is this weekend) I think I am going to start over once the 5K is done and I can focus on some things besides running. I liked the workouts so far, I might also try doing them in the morning before work and doing cardio after work. It's just so much time out of my night to run for 35-40 minutes, cool off, and then try to fit in another 15-20 minutes of strength training. (once you figure in me finding the video on Youtube on my Wii so I can do it in front of the big TV, it ends up being that long) And I've been doing Coach Nicole's 28 day bootcamp workouts as cross training, so on nights I do that I'm already doing weight and it feels like too much to do more.

Kathbeth, I know what you mean. I babysat my 7 week old granddaughter yesterday & did some housework. I did my video at 9pm but felt so much better for it. Did day 5 first thing this morning & the gym after work for some cardio. Have a great healthy day.

This is my first challenge as well! I had a blah day and am sore from doing yard work the last two days and did not want to do any videos. I am so glad I did! I even did them in my PJs! I did an arms one and pilates. Boy, do I feel better! I am stretched and it feels great knowing I kept my goal!!

Just checking i to see how everyone is doing. I have finished day 4 & am getting into exercising again. Tried yoga yesterday & liked it enough to try it again. Coach Nicole the videos are simple enough that I want to do them everyday. thanks

This is my first boot camp challenge also. I also try & then stop & then try again. The good thing is I keep trying. Hopefully some day I won't stop. Good luck to all

If you're not used to using all those arm muscles & you start lifting weights, I think it's normal to be sore for several days after. I would just make sure you do several minutes of some good stretching to warm up those tired muscles before you start lifting weights again. Just take it easy at first...listen to what you're body tells you. If it's painful (which is different than sore) when you're lifting weights again, then maybe you just need to reduce the weight or the number of reps you're doing, to allow your muscles enough time to repair/rebuild. I wouldn't skip the workout though...I've found that this actually makes me MORE sore, the longer I wait between workouts. Just modify what you need to modify...but keep at it! Also, make sure you're getting enough protein...this helps to rebuild the muscle tissue you're working so hard on! And don't forget to breath while doing the workout...muscles need oxygen!!

Good luck and I hope you're muscles feel better soon! emoticon

if my arms still hurt 2-3 days later after i did weights, can i still do weights on the 3rd/4th day even though they still hurt/burn?

You can do it GOTTAHAPPEN!!

If you fall off track for a few days (or a week), just pick right back up. If you have a stubborn streak like me, tap into that...refuse to let your setbacks beat you! Life happens and can in the way for all of us and our health/fitness goals...we just gotta refuse to give up. Persevere!

I have tried for the past year to develop a consistent exercise and disciplined eating plan. I do really well for a few weeks, but have small results, then my motivation peters out. This is my first time to try something like this and I am hoping that the commitment will help motivate me. We have a cruise coming up in June and I would like to lose a few pounds and feel good going in. Wishing everyone luck in their goals!emoticon
