Ah, I just recommended to someone else here her videos. I only use the "30 Day Shred", and I love that it's 20 minutes! 20 BUTT KICKING minutes I might add, but it's a great workout. I noticed a change in my waist, arms and legs within the first two weeks. Of course, I did it every day not knowing you should give your body a rest from workouts 2 times a week, and on those days walk or doing something that is not so intense. Good luck with everything. We can do what we set our minds to.

I'm in the same boat as you! I was doing so well doing my workouts three times per week. Then, I came down with a sinus infection and for the last month, have been doing maybe one workout a week if I'm lucky.

I started again on Thursday morning, but I realize that I am much stronger after work and my workouts seem more productive.

I'm doing the Jillian Michaels DVD's that are intense, but only about 25 minutes in length. So, I told myself, "Just do this - you can take 25 minutes out of your day to exercise!" I've lost close to 30 lbs. and do not want to gain it back! That's how I gained it back before - I stopped exercising.

You can do this!!!!!! I am also where you are, and I have decided after getting this challenge, that I WILL get back to the gym after work again. I have been very lax for 3 weeks. I also need to lose about 50-60 more lbs (scale wise)...I will probably find that once I start working out again, toning up and such, my 50-60 will turn in to 30-40. Here is my suggestion: Get someone who will hold you accountable in this area. Then, commit to how many times you reasonable think you can get to the gym or work out somewhere else after work. Even if it's three times a week, or two times a week to start, that is better than ZERO times a week. Just start moving again. Set realistic goals for yourself, but don't allow yourself to make excuses as to why you can't start again. I am worn out after work, BUT...if I can go home and cook, clean, and watch an hour of TV...I can go to the gym and bust my butt and other 2000 body parts for 30 minutes. My goal for the next two weeks is going 4-5 times a week, and working out no less than 45 minutes. I am going to track it, and I'm going to have a buddy that will just encourage me and ask me if I've done it for that day. YOU CAN DO THIS!!! You just have to make the move from the couch to the door and go, go, go!!!!! I am praying for you, and I am waiting to hear that you did it!!! The only person who holds us back is us! emoticon

I was doing 30 minutes on the elliptical after work, except Fridays I did yoga. Now I just don't have the energy. I need to lose 50 more pounds. Wish I could join the Walk and Talk or the Slide and Talk. ; ) Looks like a great group.
