Congrats LMO!
It's great to find a workout that sticks for you!
Yesterday I started doing these workouts on Sparkpeople and I was watching television at the same time. I got so caught in my show that I didn't even realize despite how much I was sweating that 40 minutes had gone by!!
It was a great feeling - I was just reading the workout to do next and doing the correct reps and sets.
Yay!

i've heard that her DVDs are excellent!

i've been playing around with the wii fit for the past 3 nights and I LOVE IT! i forgot how much fun it is. i absolutely love the boxing game, i wish they just had a full boxing game for the wii. i think it would be awesome. i heard that the jillian michaels wii game stinks though, which is unfortunate.

They have most of them on our free ExerciseTV on demand, here. I tried that Boost Metabolism workout the other day and made it through about half. WOWOWOW is that one hard!!!

I love her workouts but she has a tendency to jump around a bit much for me (or maybe my floor?). I am not getting any younger and she puts a lot of stress on the knees.

I have the 30-day Shred, the Front Side/Back Side set, and a Biggest Loser workout with Jillian, Bob, and that other chick who was on the show a few seasons ago. And this is my one problem with them as well. Years of carrying around 50-90 pounds of extra weight have left me with a bad hip and a bad knee (both on the left side). Sometimes I can get through an entire workout with no problems. But then there are those times that after one set of front lunges, I can barely put any weight on my left leg. And then I'm shot for the next week. So unfortunately I'm more into the lower impact exercises like walking (I'm attemping the couch to 5k program, but I have the same problem to a lesser extent with that) or Yoga simply because I can do them more than once a week.

I have the Wii Game from Jillian Michaels it is a major disappointment. But her workout dvds are amazing


I would kill for her to come out with a 90 day series, similiar to Power 90x or chalean extreme

I am attempting the couch to 5K program as well. I did w3d1 yesterday and then followed it with 30day shred. So far the only pain is mild muscle soreness, but I will see how I feel after d3... I am doing a 5K on Apr 26th with a fellow WISHer, in NJ, but I don't think we will be running the whole thing.

Have you tried any of the machines, like an elliptical? Or if you don't have access to a gym, I recommend buying some sort of mini-stepper, which seems to be a lot less impact than running or jumping around. I got mine for about $30 from craigslist, which is a great resource for used sporting goods, or I think you can get a new one from wally-world or similar places for about $40-50. They fit nicely under the bed or in the garage, too, and can be moved easily.

Do not beat yourself up!

I am in the middle of reading Bethenny Frankel's book Naturally Thin the book is pretty much common sense but she makes ALOT of great points. Basically think of your eating as a Bank Account!:

Basically the books attitude would be So what if you ate a greasy sandwich and a cookie....So you "spent" a little bit more on food today than you would have liked to so tomorrow hit the gym and eat clean its all about balance

So, all of your kind words about Jillian Michaels made me want to try her videos. So, last night I did the No More Trouble Zones workout. OH MY GOD.
It kicked my butt! At first I was like... there's no way I can do this.
But, as I got into it, I LOVE the circuits!
I've never sweat so much in my life!
It was such a GREAT feeling!
Thanks guys!!!

I've lost 5.7 pounds already this week!!!

(April Fools!)

Seriously though, I did my super-secret mid-week weigh in this morning, and I was down a little over 1/2 pound. Now, I'm not going to read too much into that because I was down about the same amount last week Wednesday and ended up gaining a little by Friday. But it was encouraging. And this week, I'm going to avoid doing any strength training at all on Thursday, just in case there is some truth to the whole "strength training causes you to retain acid in your muscles and thus gives you a false weight gain" thing. We'll see if that makes any difference.

I'm just super anxious for the weather to improve! I really want to get out and get walking, and restart the Couch to 5k program. I got through week three last year, and then I got really busy with landscaping projects that pretty much sidetracked me for the rest of the summer. And unfortunately, the weather only cooperates about 4-5 months out of the year in Wisconsin. I just KNOW that that I'll see better results once I can get outside more.

Have a happy Wednesday everybody!

(And by the way, why doesn't our thread have the little green smiley guy any more?)

Okay. So, confession: I've been eating poptarts for breakfast for way too long
So, I need something to eat for breakfast that I can eat/make quickly. The only problem with things I've found is that I have stomach problems, so I need something with enough carbs to fill me up. But, I just saw how many calories are in poptarts and I DEFINITELY need to stop!
Teach me!

I always eat kashi cereal for breakfast. Any kind of it is so good, and it does fill you up!
On the weekends I like to make eggs, kashi waffles and yogurt for breakfast. It has about the time amount of calories as the cereal, which isn't a lot.

Just checking in. I was gone on a trip Sunday-Tuesday and I feel like I've gained 10 pounds. All we did it seemed was eat and I didn't know what the healthiest choices were on the menus so when they got fastfood I broke out my cereal to have instead.

New start in April!
Have a great day everyone!
