It used to be leg strength, but my quads are coming along nicely and I am walking more briskly with better balance. Yayyyyy!!!

So now it's my upper arms. You know, your hand stops but your upper arm is still waving goodbye? I have really been working my arms, and at my last Curves checkup I had lost 3 1/2 inches from each one, but they still have some "waving goodbye" to go!

I have been working on my brain for a while now, however, it still has a ways to go. My main body part to work on is fat. I have excess fat on my hips and thighs that will not come off.

Excellent point Alex! No disputing the body / mind connection! I think it works both ways,

changing your thinking = changing your body

AND

changing your body = changing your thinking!

i agree with the brain thing, for sure. but i find that most of the time when i get my body doing what it should, the brain falls into step, too. i guess it's juset all interrelated, right?

With the passing of my mono earlier this spring / summer, I had to forgo much in the way of strength-training. I haven't caught up with my primary care doc in a bit, but it sure feels to me that this mono thing was 1) a pretty mild case, as I rarely felt the fatigue that is so characteristic of mono and 2) MUST be resolved by now, as I've been able to do some fairly strenuous stuff such as biking back and forth to nearby towns around 10 miles away.

So...strength training for upper body / core is going to be my focus once I get the go-ahead. I would like to feel less self-conscious about these areas. My legs are doing just fine with all the treadmilling and bicycling I've been doing! :-)

Also I hope to check out cross-country skiing as a replacement for bicycling. We have a county park nearby which leases them during the winter months. Would like to try it a few times and see if it would be something I could enjoy doing on a regular basis.

Don

ps, great topic Daz! Good to look ahead to the colder months and begin to set some goals...!

i need to work on the whole..........


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I actually need to work on my whole part, not necessarily one area. The area that needs the most work though is my ankle. I still can't stand or walk for more than 1 hour without needing to sit down, since my ankle surgery in March.

Actually, this may sound strange. But it is my brain. If I work on that, all else will fall into place. ;)

Hi Team emoticon


We are now approaching the cooler months ahead I decided to focus on the part of my body that need the most attention. I have belly fat or muffin top that needs more trimming, so this month is gut buster month. What part of your body do you need to focus on?

Keep On Sparking emoticon
