Hi again! Checking back in with my workout of the day. Today was day 17 of my current 30 day rotation. Today was Rock My Abs which clocked in at 30 minutes and is an interval workout that alternates between abs and cardio. Feels so good to be working out again....although I did find it hard in the breathing department...my lungs are still not right after this virus. Hopefully exercising helps to move along the healing process Now off to make dinner.

Have a great evening all!

Mary, so good to see you again. Welcome back. I had a bit of a hiatus myself.

DCar, welcome to FitDay. I hope you get a lot out of the group. Holler if any of us can answer anything or help in any way.

Glad to hear folks are doing well & making muscles! Debbie, hope your "wind" comes back soon.

Mern, I hope you enjoyed the babysitting. I can think of worse ways to spend a day .

I made a big pot of turkey soup tonight. A freezer full of carcasses can be a wonderful thing.

Checking in:

1. Log everything. Yes
2. Exercise 5 days (M & W are 12-hour days at work) Yes
3. 1300 calories max. 1215
4. Balance the pie chart for what works for me. Yes
5. Force the fluids. Fair
6. Check in and post daily. Yes

Good morning all! Checking in with day 19 of my current 30 day rotation which was a 40 minute HIIT workout alternating upper body (focusing on biceps) and cardio. Awesome workout! I'm feeling stronger today than I did yesterday, but I still find my lung capacity is not what it was.

Cassie - I too have a carcass in my freezer My sister's company bought turkeys for all it's employees and doubled the order to donate the extra turkeys to homeless shelters/soup kitchens over the holiday season. Well it turned out many of the employees didn't want a turkey and the shelter could only take a few turkeys. My sister ended up with 20 turkeys and couldn't even give them away. I ended up taking one and now will have to cook it up at some point and find creative ways to use all the meat. My kids don't eat meat, so it's only me and my husband. I'll definitely make a soup with the bones and I guess I'll be eating turkey wraps for months to come!

Becca - I've spent so much money and time on workout dvds over the years, that I ended up coming up with my own workouts and rotation. I named each of my current workouts and made a calendar like you would see in these expensive dvd series. I named them funny names....sort of a tougne in cheek funny...because sometimes I think the commercial fitness industry is ridiculous. Yes.....simple things amuse me My workout today was called Bodacious Biceps! Although the names are funny, the workouts are no joke! I could market this stuff!

Libby - If you're clothes are fitting loser and you haven't lost any weight on the scale, that can only mean one thing....you're changing your body composition!!!! Losing fat/gaining muscle looks sooooo much nicer than just 'losing weight'! Simply dieting to lose weight will help you lose some body fat, but also you'll lose muscle. If you do resistance training while reducing calories, you'll lose body fat but you'll maintain muscle and/or even gain some muscle! more muscle = faster metabolism = easier to maintain fat lost in the long term! ......but you already new all that right

Have a great day all!

Default On track!

Hi everyone! Just finished making some lentil soup with squash, tomatoes, zucchini, and a couple pieces of Andouille! Can't wait to eat some. I started weight watchers a couple wks ago, lost 4 lbs 1st wk, went on a cruise 2nd wk (gained it back ) & now back on track since Sun. Started a new workout regimen yesterday (upper body sore - and that's a good thing). Accomplished all my goals yesterday (and then some..). On track to continue today. I have never joined a weight loss group before - but weight watchers is a program I think I can live with.
