The first week I was so weak that I couldn't do ANY exercise, so I began on the second week. I'm trying to do strength training on both days of Phase 2, but on the first of two days I feel so weak, missing my grain and fruits, that I can barely move, so on the second day I'm taking advantage and exercising very intense... Adding more weight and making less reps. It feels good!

It does!

I am getting lots of exercise in my yard. 3 hours in my veggie bed yesterday, 3 hours in one of my flower beds yesterday. 1 hour on the mower, then we both ran out of gas emoticon

Great program, Kathy!

I belong to a gym, and have for decades. I am just really out of the habit of going. No excuse because my sons would join me any time I want to go.

Just do it! This needs to happen....

After my rehab at my local physical therapy place they offered me the chance to come in and keep exercising for $50 a month. This is where I go to exercise. The therapists are always there to monitor and if they seeing you doing an exercise incorrectly they come over and help. They also set up an exercise routine for you. It's like having a personal trainer without the cost!. On Mondays I do cardio on either the step machine or the tred mill. Wednesdays It's strength training on the weight machines and Fridays I do gentle body stretches with relaxation in between. At home I walk and of course all the yard work counts. At work I park farther away from the office, use the stairs and make sure I move around at least once an hour. Seems to work well with me. What keeps me motivated is that I have a knee and hip replacement all on the right side and to keep flexible I need to do this.

I have kettlebells.. I love love them. I'm not sure how great they would be for "just" strength training. They combine str and aerobic moves, but I think I can isolate the moves enough to make it just str training. I'm looking forward to phase 2 just for the work out, I missed doing it today.

I hear ya.

I have absolutely no excuses. Time or machine wise. I dont have alot of equipment, but I have enough. But just body weight exercises are enough. I bought the book, Body by You: The You Are Your Own Gym Guide to Total Women's Fitness by Mark Lauren and Joshua Clark. Haven't read it yet.

I have the free download of Primal Blueprint Fitness. Skimmed it.

I have Slim in 6 (have done) Mama wants her body back (never opened)... I have all kinds. I would like to do t-tapp. I have the book, but that one needs a dvd.

But what I like to use, and I dont really know how this counts. I have read mixed reviews. I have a Confidence Slim Full Body Vibration Platform Fitness Machine, and while on it, I do squats, and various exercises with my arms, calf raises, etc.

DH uses it to work the kinks out, and it helps him sleep. I have not been using it every day like I was, and my sleep has been hit and miss. hmmmm

I also use to do, but havent in quite some time - I have a bathroom routine. I drink alot of water, so I go to the bathroom alot. So before I leave the restroom, I do a set of calf raises, wall pushups, & squats.

I really need to get back to these things again also emoticon

This has to be a priority for me. I really want to get my arms stronger again. I have a kayak, but I am not strong enough to lift myself with my arms out of the kayak and onto my dock. I have to get out by basically plunking my chest on the dock and rolling out. And I am super embarrassed to look like a fool!

My husband and two grown sons are all athletic and we have a weight bench at the house. I have no excuses, and yet......
