Did a 40 min work out video and then ran 1 mile.

I was freaked the first time I did a trail, Frankie. But I fell in love! Its so much fun, and I never thought I'd like it.

And yeah, my foot is really hurting. I probably shouldn't have went running.

Good luck, Inhibited with the push ups! I tried doing regular push ups today, on my toes, and could barely do two -they're hard!

I'm working on those too! They are hard but dammit I will persevere.

Very light cardio today but a ton of stretching. I needed a light day. I'm really excited about how limber my hamstrings are getting. I can lie flat on the ground and pull my leg back and it's getting very close to my face....at least halfway past a 90 degree angle.

Two, 26-minutes walks, to and from Starbucks. Later, I'll do a vigorous 20 minute workout. But not before I take some Tylenol. My arthritis is BAD.

I feel OLD!

Honestly, don't be scared of it! If you can do other cardio machines you can do the Stairmaster. It allows you to program in as much or as little time as you want, and at as high or low a level as you want. Try just 5 minutes at Level 2 and you'll be so proud of yourself, I promise.

today i really didn't feel like working out but managed to somehow drag myself to the gym and managed to do 20mins of the treadclimber and 40mins of the cross trainer.

lol! thanks, i think it really helped that i started by doing it on level 1 every single time then have slowly built up on it timewise and levelwise. just like you said if you build on it slowly by slowly you'll get there in not time at all!

I did a mass cardio blast today.

70 minutes of level 6 stairmaster and 10 minutes of level 3 as a steady state/cool down.

My quads are burning but I am so proud.

Yesterday I walked about four miles.

Today: 35 minutes on the elliptical machine, 12 minutes on the Stairmaster, and a round of the weight machines. I would have done more if I had more time and more energy. I don't know if it's because I didn't drink much water today or have anything to eat for six and a half hours, but I didn't have as much get up and go. I usually eat a small snack before I go to the gym but didn't have the time to grab one today.

I need to figure out what I plan to do on the days on which I don't go to the gym. There's always walking, but walking around my neighborhood bores me. I have a couple of Jillian Michaels DVDs, but I can't get into them completely - I'm sure my downstairs neighbor won't appreciate me maniacally jumping all around right over her head.

Have you considered some home equipment like a stability ball, free weights, or a weight bar? Those can all be used non-impact so you dont' have to worry about upsetting downstairs neighbors. I have a 15 pound weight bar that I used to do bicep and tricep curls and "rows" (standing while holding the bar in both hands and pulling it upwards) and i also have some free weights and a stability ball which is great for stretching my spine and also balance/core exercises. You can also use the ball for many variations on situps.

I walked around the mall for a few hours. I'm trying to NOT work out much because of my foot - but its hard not to. I'm just itching to go out running today, but I know I shouldn't.

70 minute mall walk


Lypeaches, what kind of new sneakers did you get? Nike something or other. Was it those ones that have some ball action in the sole and are supposed to "give you a better butt" that I have seen advertised on TV ads?

I found myself a pair of Skechers today.....on sale for $45
I was in Sears and stopped to browse the sneakers out of curiosity. Started a light shoe convo with another woman on that aisle....she said she has two pairs of Skechers and they are the most comfortable shoes she has ever owned. Tried on a pair that for sports activities such as walking, hiking, running, etc. They were very comfortable in my walk up and down the aisle when I tried a pair on- didn't rub on the sides of my heel or anything either. Price was much better than I had planned on paying for new walking shoes so I pulled out my Sears card.
Time will tell if it was a good investment when I do one of my hour long walks.

I had free weights, but my boyfriend ran off with them (gave me his iron in return and considered it an even exchange - and I never, ever iron.). I've been thinking about buying a new set. You know, that would make a good Christmas present for him to get me, ha. I would like to get some impressive biceps and do something about my non-existent triceps.

And now for some exercise confessions:

- First the bad news: I didn't go to the gym today. However, I did go to the German deli and buy at least $50 worth of various kinds of lebkuchen.

- A very hardcore personal trainer once called me tough - behind my back to another gym patron. He would have never said that to my face.

- My muscle strength is not so hot, but my flexibility is excellent.

Congratulations, Frankie!

Oh, I'm going out walking later, and it won't be hardcore or anything. I'll report back.

Thank you! It's just not Christmas until I buy up all the German specialities I can lay my hands on. And I'm a sucker for seasonal food.

ETA: More importantly, good for you for going for a walk. Have we seen you around the exercise thread before? If not, welcome aboard! *hands you a dark chocolate covered, jam filled German gingerbread*
