    Don't be afraid of lifting weights girls!! It will help you lose inches, build muslce, show definition, and firm up like no diet or cardio exercise can. The focus needs to be shifted from the number on the scale, to the way you look and feel and what size clothes you wear. I only dropped 2-4 lbs over the past 6 weeks, but went down another clothing size. Works for me!! Oh by the way, I have been certified as a personal trainer for the past 8 years.

    I love my FIRM workout DVD's. They incorporate cardio and weights in one workout. They also have just cardio or weights as well. I can really see a difference in myself when I stick to them!

    I go to the YMCA about 3-4 times a week. Usually 2 times for hour long water aerobics (LOVE it!) then another 2 times for cardio/weights.

    For my cardio I do 30 mins on the elliptical at intervals. I usually go about 2 miles and burn about 350 cals! Love that machine!
    I do about 25 lifts with 30 lb weights for my back and shoulders, then another 75 (different positiions) with 5 lbs weights, 100 crunches on the yoga ball, lots of stretching and walk a 10 min half mile for cool down.

    Right now I'm not able to afford a gym membership, because the gym that I would like to join (a ladies only gym) requires a contract, and is kinda expensive.

    We have a track in the city that is 1.5 miles long. Alot of people walk it everyday, and it is in the nice part of the neighborhood, where I feel somewhat safe. I don't like walking when the sun is out. I like to go around sunset.

    I started out walking around once, and did this for a week, then I tried 2 laps. Boy was I sweating! I feel so out of shape though,because like 60 year old couples walking together pass me! lol! I'm only 23! This past week I have been jogging for as long as I can, which generally means about 30 seconds, a few times per lap to get my heart rate up.

    I recently invested in an mp3 player (my 1st one), which makes walking so much easier! It is actually FUN to me!

    I would LOVE to be able to run one whole lap without feeling like I'm going to die. This is my goal that I would like to reach by December.

    I am worried that when school starts again, (August) that I won't have as much time to walk consistently. Also, the weather is something to think about.

    OH WAIT!!! I have an elliptical machine sitting right next to me! Silly me!
    I don't like using it because I always get distracted, telling myself that I need to clean my room or do laundry, or check the message board. lol.

    Right now I am focused on shedding some weight before I start to tone or do any weight training. I might take a couple of hand weights to the track next week though. But then I will not be able to carry my water bottle.
    Sorry I am rambling. I took my phen later in the day, and I have been sick, so I have taken WAY too much Sudafed today. lol

    Default What workout routine works best for you??

    I was just wondering what kind of workout routines everyone was doing and how hard y'all were pushing yourselves. Where you started and where you hope to be in six months as far as your physical fitness.

    I am big into weight training. If I don't jiggle when I move, then I feel good at whatever size. I usually alternate between arms/shoulders, legs/hips/thighs, and abs/back on different days of the week. My core area is the slowest to build muscle and the fastest to heal from soreness, so I've started this week trying to do abs/back every day and just alternate the other two. I use 3 lb weights for my arms and 15 lbs for my shoulders and back. I want to build up to 5 lb weights and 20 lbs by Fall. I'm doing mostly bicycle crunches for my abs b'c I read on Fittv websites and links that those are rated the best non-machine workout for your core. Softball season is slowing down which is where I was getting most of my cardio, so I'm looking for something fun to do to take its place. I don't mind walking on the treadmil, but I would rather be in the sun (not the heat) and feel more energized by what I'm doing. I'm trying to get my hubby to take up playing tennis with me. (neither of us can play, but it's really good exercise) Right now I would say I push myself (on a scale of 1-5, 1 being a slow, leisure, not really in the mood work out and 5 being a grunting, sweating, on top of the world work out) around 2 or 3 maybe... I'm trying to push that, I wanna be doing around a 3 or 4 consistently atleast 5 days a week.
    What about y'all???
    210lbs-170lbs 10/01/08 - 3mo of phen & 3mo of just D&E
    208.5 lbs 05/04/10 - Wk 0 (started phen again)

    Mini Goal: 170lbs by my Vegas vacation in August

    Final Goal: 150lbs
