I'm on "Day 2" of basic activity. That means Walking, drinking water, and tracking food. I'm starting here after my long absence from caring for my mom who has since passed away. So, I think the basics are necessary first - getting in the habit of exercise and understanding what I'm eating - before I get the warrior mindset. Movement builds momentum. I hope to be posting regular updates, if I'm not then you know that I'm struggling. It will be a long road.

Did shoulders again yesterday and went to see my chiropractor to adjust everything back in place. I'm supposed to fit in Legs (week 8) today, not sure when-- actually hoping my evening plans fall through!

Still plugging away- on week 7 of the program. Today is shoulders which has me a little worried because something is out of whack (even during yesterday's flyes were aggravating my shoulders). I think I need to go see my chiro and get adjusted.

Last Friday, I decided to start at week 5 since I've been doing 3-4 days/week of weight training for the last 4-5 weeks. Today was day 34: Legs. I'm back to being chicken about lunges and free weight squats so next session I'm really going to need to work at least one of them in (I'm substituting the squat machine and Leg Presses for now). I'd bumped up my weights considerably in the last week and a half, so I think I'm on track.

Woohoo Hillrunner Mary!

Jen- good to see you plugging away at exercise.

I'm just back from vacation where I only weight trained 6 or so times and mostly did hiking and adventure sports (not enough to make forward progress but enough to keep alot of vacation pounds from adding)

It was back and cardio today. Some new machines and weight moves so being patient to see improvements.
I did a stationary interval session for the cardio. Worked hard at it and felt powerful when finished!!

I finished Week 3 yesterday and I'm jumping to Week 5 because I have a significant impact on my schedule coming up in a month. I want to make the most of this attempt at doing the program, so jumping into Phase 2 with cardio today.

Yay Jen! Today I did Legs -- Day 15.
I never do Dead Lifts- they were permanently vetoed by my Physical Therapist a few years ago. I do rear leg lifts on a ball- works the same muscles, but safer on my back.
I just look up the exercises on Bodybuilder.com and look to see what muscles it works, what alternates they list there, and if I don't like those- check the exercises on Spark to see if anything appeals to me.

I did legs yesterday- modified it a little bit. I'm not up for sumo dead lifts, so did sumo squats instead. I also couldn't quite pull off a cable pull through...so did the lying hamstring machine. I am not as sore...and I am not sure if that is good or not..but at least I can walk without groaning!

Woo Hoo its Friday!

Your guys are doing awesome! I have just restarted. I am doing Nia Shanks fat loss/,uscle builder program- she is from girls gone strong....and its only 4 days a week, and only 4 cardio days, so I do them at the same time. Once I get my schedule and life a little more into a rhythm, I will probably go back to live fit--I just can't pull off 6 days a week just yet! I am so sore today though! not sure if it was the weights or the run or both, but taking a month off didn't help!

Hope everyone is pushing on!

It's great to have you back girl! That bloat will be gone before you know it. I always get a little of that on trips. I just might join the plank challenge. That I can do. It's the 30 days of squats that kills me:) Go get that workout!!!

It's official all. I am signed up for the Indy 500 Mini-Marathon. Yep, me doing 13.1 miles with two dear spark friends. We managed to all log in at the same time and our bibs are all in order. Can't even begin to tell you how scared and excited I am!!!

Hitting Cedar Point tomorrow for HalloWeekends. The lines at that place and those darn roller coasters are just as scary as the half! Well almost:)

Okay, back to the grind. And although I didn't gain weight on my cruise- I must have gained inches because nearly NONE of my pants fit me anymore. BLAH! so frustrating that being sick and off just a couple weeks can be such a big deal.

Today I'm planning on a full body workout minus arms and shoulders. I'll work on those Saturday and Sunday and then get back into Week 7 of Live Fit Monday with Legs.

I am also doing a 30 day Plank challenge. m.active.com/fitness/Articles/30-Day

Well, 4 days of flu (still stuck with cough and congestion but fever is gone enough). A little off track, but I'm going to attempt day 32 Arms/Abs today at home. I really hope to have enough energy to do Legs tomorrow. That way I'll have time to do another round of Legs before my cruise.
enough rest!

Well, had hoped to do day 31 Legs today, but ain't gonna happen. I can barely function with this bug that doesn't seem to respond at all to cold/flu meds. Too tired to even watch tv...

Woohoo LFF! Sorry to hear you are sick though:( We must somehow be spreading cyber-germs around here. Be careful. Think it's a good idea to do it at home. Just in case you feel totally spent. You never know when you are coming down with something. Rock on and feel better!

Okay, I have started back with LiveFit today. oh, how I missed it! So my original thought was to start on Phase 2 since I've been hitting the weights consistently for the last 2 months anyway.
So it would have been Day 29 - Back & Cardio. But since I have a cruise in 10 days, I want to try to compress a little to fit in the first 2 weeks of workouts, so I thought - why not Day 29 and 30? I was thinking- do the Chest and half the Abs at home mid-afternoon then go into the gym for Back, remainder of Abs and Cardio after dinner.

except I am sick today. Fever, sore throat, congested.

I got through the Chest (went easy on the side-to-side pushups by doing them on a wall) and Abs (skipped the cable crunches since I don't have a good set up for that at home), but now I am thinking *if* I do the Back also today (later), that I should do that at home as well. I shouldn't go spread germs and frankly, I don't want to look weak and wobbly in front of other people. So we'll see if I manage the 2nd workout and cardio later tonight.

Either way, I'm happy to have done anything at all and be started back on the program!

Hey ladies- sorry I was MIA (at a biz conference) last week.
Jen- yep, Phase 3 is killer. I hated plyo too. Sprints were scary, so I had to negotiate (ok, try doing at least 12 minutes- then try doing at least 20 minutes... I usually ended up doing the 30 minutes in the end, but it was getting on that treadmill that was the hardest.) I also would stretch out the rest periods by the end (maybe 30 seconds on with 45 seconds rest).
Also, you could substitute *any* HIIT (high intensity interval training) exercise for the sprints. So if you'd rather get on the row machine or bike and go like mad for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, repeat 30 times- then you can do that instead!

And here's where I'll make your day... If you REALLY find yourself NOT doing it and wanting to quit and since you only have 11 weeks for the program-- finish up week 9 and then skip to week 11 of the program, finishing up with week 11 and 12.
The 2nd part of Phase 3 is circuit training. You will love it. Still tiring (no rests until after one complete circuit of 8 or so exercises will have you sweating).

The plyo and sprints are HUGE for fat loss, so if you can do it, DO IT. but if you feel icky, week 11 may do wonders for you.

Great job Jen! I giggled at the cranky comment. You have no idea how cranky I am today. Wicked:) I am going to attack some LiveFit this weekend. I may not be able to follow the daily schedule with the hours, but will keep pushing and knocking them out. Trail run happening tomorrow. Lots of rain today so that means lots of mud and squishy feet tomorrow!

i skipped sprints yesterday, but I am still so crazy sore from what I have been doing. It amazes me how rough I am feeling, but I think it will be good in the end,

The plyo stuff is really hard for me- just very creaky to start, and oodles of jumps doesn't help. I am feeling pretty cranky too ;P

Super proud of you!!! The 3rd phase is killer. I remember:) Listen to your body. Sometimes I would mix in more plyo bursts rather that the run. To be honest my sprints are not sprints to many. LOL Hey, if I am sweating, breathing heavy and working, that is what counts! You got this!!! I would sometimes mix things up a bit when I felt spent. There were days I was so tired I would get majorly cranky. Well, that is me on a bunch of days. LOL

So phase 3, day 2- I am dying. I still feel super stupid doing the little cardio things in between the weight sets....and the sprints killed me. I am so sore. I was probably at the gym for 2 hours.... I am seriously not sure I can do tomorrow. I am playing with ideas on how to modify so I can do it tomorrow...sprints are just so hard on my body.

I don't think I will make it to week 12-my vacation is that week-so no gym :( but, 11weeks will be awesome. I will probably re-start live fit (or something) when I come back.

Ugh, okay time for bed

I'm here to whine-oh my goodness phase 3 day 1 killed me. I felt extra stupid hopping around the gym ( the teen boys snickering did not help!). A few questions

1) is I normal to feel like death?

2) alternative to jumping rope? Not sure my knees can keep up with jumping. High knees?

3) Im a bigger girl-tomorrow with the sprints is freaking me out.

Ok, that said, I feel pretty strong for doing it (blister, sore body, everything), but this is the first time I really thought I may not be strong enough. I'm going to push through, but I'm going to try

Welcome to the team Kimmie! Hope you're still going strong Jen! Congrats on finishing Phase 1 Kristin!
Kristin, do you have one of those straps for your forearm to take the pressure off your tendons at the elbow? This helps when mine flares up. And ibuprofen. And less weight.

This has been a rough week for me. After the hike last weekend left me with huge blisters on the backs of my heels, I didn't want to do cardio at all. I did 18 holes of golf on Tuesday and I was limping by the end from the darn blisters.
They are better now- actually could have done cardio yesterday but still didn't. My last workout had been Wednesday when I did Back/Biceps/Triceps. I skipped cardio and then skipped my next two WT and cardio days.

Today I finally just decided to go to the gym and do 3 full body workouts. Well, everything but Biceps and Triceps. I'm not sure if I'm bored with the Labrada workouts or its just a motivation thing.

I got my new trail shoes this week. Now that my blisters are gone, I'm hoping I find motivation to go try a short run tomorrow for some cardio.

Oops! Forgot to post here. Last day of Phase 1 happening today and than onto Phase 2! After this last week I was struggling with the idea of taking an entire week off, but no, I am going to keep plugging away. Problem now is that tennis elbow thing is getting worse and may limit my moves soon if it doesn't get better. Grrrr, to injuries! Going to work on the diet some more. MORE eggs are calling :) and :(

Legs done last night. I was wiped out before I started. Tonight will probably be my rest day. That means tomorrow will be the last day of Phase 1. Onward I GO!!!

Hi and welcome to the team Kimmie! Woohoo on your soreness:) Twisted as that may sound. LOL It is great to hear you are loving it. I am working on my second time doing LiveFit (although I have incorporated it into workouts even when I wasn't doing the full plan). It is a great program!

Only have two ST days left in Phase 1. Legs tonight. Guess this means I will be saying goodbye to two rest days. MM and I were just talking about how this means walking lunges and supersets are coming. Ugh! Lord, give me strength:)

Good job Jen! I feel your being physically and emotionally tired. I am there right now. I did back/biceps, skipped the run and was not into the workout. Hate when those times come:( We can do it!!! (((hugs)))

Back/biceps done and have no idea what I have for a workout tonight. My days are feeling mixed up. Need a good, long meditation...ommmmmmmmm!

Yesterday I did arms, abs, cardio, today was legs day 51. I am so crazy sore-I think more so because I did some weird lateral trainer yesterday and my knees are so sore. I tried to increase weight today, and I feel good. I'm also tired- physically and emotionally . It's hard to make myself get to the gym.

k-hope you had a good run and ST tonight, and that you elbow oes okay with the training.

LFF- hope you got some fun outdoor activity in. You are doing awesome!

Missed this one yesterday. Sheesh!

LFF: I am always surprised by those days where I feel weaker. For me it is usually because I need a rest day or maybe a stressful day that did wonders on the bod. I cannot figure the weights out on our home assisted pullup machine. I end up mixing up between assisted and unassisted (even if I can only pull myself up 4 inches. They are still my nemesis! Occasionally I bring my weight down on preacher and concentration curls and do them slowwwly. Glad you got in that much needed outdoor time. I found that on Sunday I was a little sad having missed the long trails. Nature, sweat and time with friends does a body and spirit good:)

Like I said in the other thread, I took a rest. Planning on ST and running tonight. Have to do a little running around to score some neon stuff for us and our run on Saturday. Dollar store here I come. Needless to say it will be a late workout.

Rock on all!

Today's workout was weird- I was SO weak!
Monday I was able to do 3 sets of 12 underhanded pullups (assisted by 46 ... or was it 90 lbs- Ok, this could be the problem). Today I did ONE set of NINE assisted by 38 pounds and couldn't even do SIX for the next two sets even though I increased the assist to 55#.
So I'm realizing I did the math wrong. I think I was LIFTING 46 pounds last time and not ASSISTING by 46.
Worse yet, one of the older gym rats Thumbs upped me after my first nine.
I was so irritated that I couldn't do more than I did 3 sets of underhand pulldowns on the Lat machine.

Of course, that wasn't all- I had trouble with preacher curls and the concentration curls-- even with 10 pounds! very frustrating workout.

I tried the rowing machine. I got through 9 minutes and had to switch to elliptical.

I didn't leave as grumpy as I thought I would, but still frustrated- especially when I came home to discover my planned cardio/hike for tomorrow was cancelled.
I NEED some outdoor time!!!!

You are doing fabulous!!! My legs don't hurt too bad, pretty much the side butt muscles. Some of it is the sciatica thing. Preacher curls are rough on my joint.

I AM taking that rest day today. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
