Mai, you are fit strong and determined too – we keep seeing you here!

Turrinda, nice to see you here – can you tell me about your avatar? Lookls like a cupcake with devil horns! Adding a bike to a Jillian day – impressive!

Pam, I live in a very yoga rich town, you see people on the T (that’s what we call the Subway ) with yoga mats all the time. I have friends who have chucked it all and become yoga instructors , or at least spend their vacations at yoga retreats. There are classes at the Y and at my church; its finding time for one more activity – I’d like to work it into a vacation.
Congrats on finishing first, and the presecribed weight can’t be prescribed for everyone!

Crazigerl, the inversion sounds cool – and those Zumba outfits always make me laugh – back when I took it at the Y I realized that one of the instructors wore outfits that made it easy for even me to tell left from right! (short on left, long pant on right!).
Your message to Mai is one we should all frame: “any exercise for any amount of time is better than nothing”

Spinning was Long Intervals today – quite challenging – and my crunches afterwards weren’t as strong as they have been, but I am glad to be back on routine, my yogurt and banana was lovely!

Survived another day of P90x. Woke up this morning, didn't feel for it but went anyway. Feel good now. Then the weather is nice and my son and I went to a lake walk around and took pictures. But my allergies came, I feel terrible. So many sneezes, eyes watering.

Pam, thanks for your words. You are right! I should just do it. I sure will be flexible eventually.

Mai

I just now noticed!

This is a picture from a book "Skinny bitch".
And muffins are the only cake that I make and I love to eat, especially chocolate ones XD

I am currently on day 5 of the first level.
I adore Jillian, only DVD training and general training that is demonstrated to me the results.
I plan eventually to practice all of her DVDs.
stationary bike can currently withstand 45min, hopefully soon ancestors to 1 hour!
if I had a role model in the exercise and the final look must to be Jillian!

the stationary bike 45min
Jillian Michelas 30day shred level 1 day 5 - 27min

Two and a half hours of cross country skiing. I would say it was lovely - and it was - but it got very windy and snowy so both DH and I ended up pretty chilled despite the activity.

Abby-spinning and crunching. My abs hurt just thinking about it.

Mai, way to get your butt moving even thoiugh initially you didn't feel like it.

Tunrida, there is no way you are not going to meet that April 1st goal with all your effort.

RBS-x-country, what a beautiful way to spend a day.

Saturday, I went on a beautiful bicycle ride for two hours, the mountains were awe inspiring. I found trails on the other side of the river I never knew before. It was such a good for the soul day and great exercise to boot. I wish all exercise was that fulfilling. However, I have terrible hard seat butt today. Which in one way is good as I can't sit for long.

Today was gardening. I can't figure out with all the weighlifting, Zumba, and cardio how there is any unused muscles but there is. I feel pleasantly exhausted.

Keep up the good work ladies. Have a good Monday.

Mai, you get a “BIDIA” (But I did it anyway) award – they often come with the phrase “feel good now”.

Nice work Tunnrida – Jillian can be quite a task mistress!

Pam – sounds like a great experience – how long will you be able to ski?

Crazigerl, how wonderful to exercise your soul and body a the same time

I also got in some good gardening on Saturday – Sunday was too cold. We had a “false spring” but back to normal March weather now. I slept badly last night, but had an appointment with a trainer so had to get up – he wasn’t there (it was a bit of an informal appointment), and I didn’t have the brain to do weight lifting (which is my normal Monday), so I just got on a treadmill – however the one I chose was defective, the incline down button didn’t work so once you got to a certain level, you were stuck there (well, you could turn it off). I went pretty slow and hilly because I didn’t feel any energy, but felt good as it went along. Hope this coffee works!

Abby

SIGH! some days are like that Abby I think I would have throw in the towel and stomped back home

X-C sky wasn't very long ~8 miles in 2.5 hours. Both of us would have liked to have gone a little longer, but the wind and wet snow kind of sapped our energy.

Today off to the Mt for a morning of downhill skiing! The mt got about 6 more inches yesterday and it being Monday the crowds will be very modest.

Gerl, you said you wear othortic. Do you buy at Dr. Scholl or custom made at the foot doctor? I have 1 make at the foot doctor. But just one pair SOme time I want to wear different shoes and have to move it around.
Abby, you did great. Some day just like that. Uhg.
Pam, what a great experience! I have never ski. Hope some day I can learn.

Stick with my P90x still.

Lastri, I have to get custom made, I have a really hign arch that Dr. Scholls can't fit. However, I have used them for indoor shoes as I can't afford custom orthotics for every shoe.
Just make sure you don't buy the orthotics where you walk over a mat, they are pretty well the same as Dr. Scholls. You should get impressions of your feet or I like the hard plastic that is directly molded to my foot. I have to go to the hospital for them but they feel good. I'm also looking at the Vibramshoes as my girlfriend saysshe has had less hassle with her PF since she started wearing them. I think for people with high arches it's questionable whether they would work but might try them.

Today I did The firm video for dancing. Zumba tonight.
