I signed up for 7-day free trial on the Choose2Lose website. They have very good videos and explanations of the 9 minute missions on that website. I don't know that I will extend my membership beyond the free trial, but I was quite happy to have the missions demystified!

What I'm doing for the 9 minute missions is setting my phone to count to 9 minutes and just plain doing three of the workouts as best I can (with the little breaks if needed) all in a row until I get to the nine minutes. I change which three each day.

Thanks for the index card idea!
I found his book super confusing because of all the little moving parts. I have done a week of food without exercise, and this week, I am adding in some afternoon walking (baby shredders).... once I am comfortable with all that, probably after my slingshot week, I will add-in the morning missions, and I need SOMETHING to make it easier to figure out. the Timing, too, is confusing to me.. and I have a baby to tend to in the mornings, so I don't have time to spare on figuring things out as I go.

I'm doing them. Thursday is when I started the plan, so I did them that day and yesterday. My butt muscles are so glad we have the weekend off!

Yes, I'm doing the 9 minute missions. They were confusing, but what I did was make an index card for each mission. The front had the name of the mission and day of the week. On the back I wrote the exercises, the pages in the book where they're demonstrated, and the basic instructions. Making them was time consuming, but its much simpler now in the mornings. I had to make it as easy for myself as possible or I knew I would find a way to back out. I also set out my exercise clothes the night before so I put them on as soon as I wake up- less of a chance I'll slack if I'm wearing them already.

I found the missions make you feel like you've already accomplished something in the day.
Lots of luck!!

Does anyone do the 9 minute morning workout he has in the book? I haven't started yet but plan to Monday - curious as to how others do with this workout.
thanks!
