I did a hard cardio workout this morning, 20 minutes HIIT on the eliptical, 10 minutes on the instrument of torture - stairmaster, and then 20 minutes on the cardiowave. It was really good, my butt's sore now! Which I take as a good sign!

Thats awesome Kyles!

Well I'm going on week 3 of my exercise program and I'm happy to say I'm seeing results. I'm toning up finally. I've lost a few pounds but not sure how much. I wanted to lose 14 as I gained during the winter months......I'd guess I've lost 6 or 7. My clothes are fitting so much better. I haven't been walking like I was though. However, I'm getting a big workout working in the yard and around the garage and house cleaning. I'm performing my toning exercises every other day though. Oh and I do get some cardio by watching VH1 in the morning and dancing around......... That Shakira song......"my hips don't lie"....or something like that.........that'll work your abs good if you pretend your a belly dancer. I make sure I shut my blinds first though .

I've tried to be good and eliminate pop but ultimately I seem to grab a can now and then. But I have kept up with the water intake and my skin is so thankful. Its still hard to force myself to eat breakfast though. But ultimately I do eat a bowl of Special K with Berries and 1% milk. However, having gone for so many years of not being a real breakfast eater I admit I do forget.

Sizz, I turned on the satelite radio to the 80's and danced around. My calves are hurting so badly 2 days later, but, it was a good work out though!! And fun. As long as it doesn't feel like excersise, I can do it. LOL

Oh yes!! Jamming to your favourite tune is one of the most amusing way to exercise. We do aerobic dancing classes couple of times a week, it is very similar to this programme (you can get a glimpse if you click on the section on the lower right corner) ... once you get the hang of it you can do your own routine to the music of your choice... very cool

We played games this afternoon and pounded a few "tall ones"....I haven't played tug of war since grade school and I'm 34...well, I did it THREE TIMES today. That was enough exercize for me...I'm hurting bad right now!!!!

SO many people, especially women, get ver caught up in the weight loss aspect of working out. I just want to interject here that even overweight people who are unlikely to ever be thin should still exercise. It isn't about looking like a fashion model, it is about feeling good, and exercise always makes you feel good once you get rid of the "I'm doing it to loose XX lbs" attitude. Taking a walk makes you see things you never see in a car. Taking an exercise class consistently introduces you to others who encourange you to go on (right now I have a half-dozen exercise friends from classes who give me grief i I don't show up for classes). Your dogs will love you if you get them on a walking regimin, and again, will give you grief if you stop.

I think sometimes you have to get rid of the weight loss thing before you can truly enjoy exercise for its own sake.

I agree exercise is to be enjoyed, otherwise it is for sure that we won't stick with it long enough to do us good. However, it is important to get to a healthy weight which I'm trying to do. I've lost 14 pounds since I started on my regimen and hope to lose about 20 more. I won't be pencil thin then, but will be at a more healthy weight for me. I don't want to be really thin, but want my numbers to get in a healthy category for me. My bp is already down and I hope to find out about the other numbers soon. Also I am hoping to get off of some of the medications I take and hope the weight loss helps with my arthritis. I think that is quite sensible.

Sizzlin, if you tend to forget to eat breakfast, maybe you could sip on a meal replacement shake instead? My husband tends to do that. It's easier to bring yourself to drink than eat in the mornings if you're not hungry.
