I try to work on upper body w/TRX twice a week, (emphasis on try ... ) I'm sure I'll get there eventually, but it's taking a lot longer than I thought it would.

I'll add that I'm not discouraged that it's easier for my man, rather that I saw this as a challenge. One I'm just not doing too well at.

Wow, if you can already do 20 then you may want to do that routine starting with 20. Then work your way down as the breaks get shorter. As for your wrists, it's best to keep your wrists straight. If you have a set of dumbbells, put them on the floor and grip them. This should keep your wrists straight, or you can do them on your knuckles... or get push up stands which use the same concept as the dumbbells.
Seeing it as a challenge is good.


Update:
I'm way behind on my updates, I've been doing decent (the goals are pretty easy) but I have not walked. The easiest goal... riding the motorcycle may not happen, it's been kinda cold but I may suck it up and quit being a wimp and go out for a ride tonight. Right now, I'm at 4 policies for the week and may end up with 1 more.

Hi,

This is my first post to the motivational thread... wow, where to begin... I tend to be a type B, so organizing is like an ill-fitting pair of heels! However, I'll grow from that mentality:

This week's goals

1. Go to gym 6x/wk
2. Do pilates at least 1x/wk
3. Do yoga at least 1x/wk
4. Finish off 2 liters of water everyday
5. Eat vegan at least 1 day/wk
6. Surf the Web and find low-fat recipes

Behlor

Weight journey: 11.02.12 = 239 lbs, 11.09.12 = 243 lbs, 11.16.12 = 243.8

Original weight: 239 lbs
Goal: 135 lbs
Mini goal: 225 lbs

Mike;
Are you really using the COLD as an excuse not to walk in New Orleans??? So cold you had to put on long pants and a sweatshirt? LOL. I'm surprised Tori didn't beat you up for that one.

Need to make it to the gym tonight to hit my workout goal. German Chocolate birthday cake has destroyed my daily calorie goal. The good thing is it is all gone.

No, that was my excuse not to ride TPM. I put on my thermal shirt, leather jacket, leather gloves, helmet and backed her out the garage. I said, dammit, I'm gonna go for a ride. It was only 60* but felt like mid 50's for some reason. I know on the bike it would would feel damn cold. It's okay though. This southern boy was gonna man up. [boring guy talk]Cranked it up, pulled in the clutch, put her in 1st and she lurched forward and killed, while the clutch was still in. Did this several times. Pushed her back into the garage. Came to the conclusion that it was the clutch. Worked on her until I could get it in gear and it would stay running. This has the clutch really tight, so I think my clutch may be going out, with only 3500 miles on the clock. I'll try to play with it some more tomorrow. If it starts to give me fits again, she's going back to the stealership. Maybe I can get them to upgrade me to a nice race clutch that can handle a small shit of nitrous?[/end bring guy talk]

Keep the kitchen table cleared off. M, T,W, TH,F
Iron the mountain of ironing. Pants are all done...
Go to water class this week!!W
No pistachios! T,W!TH,F
Log food. T,W, Th

Hope and Joanna- yeah it is always amazing to me how much free therapy I get from my dogs. Sleep therapy, emotional, food therapy! When my dogs KNOW to drink their water first thing in the morning and after exercise and just sip here and there all day, I hear their slip-slap of their tongues in the water bowl and it triggers me To go grab my water too!

Mike- I know cars and bikes are two totally different animals, but I do notice in my Honda when the temps are below say 50degrees my car literally leaps out of first into second, and I'm an automatic! Scares the begeezes out of me! I hope you dont have to replace your clutch so soon.

4) stretch- yes, no yes,yes, yes
5) some form of exercise, even at home 2x min -home execise and walk, no yes at home no at home - thanks, Donna, for that idea! Exercising anywhere, who knew? You did!
6) pull self up by bootstraps - talked to therapist, "retail therapy" and saw friend, went to a concert with DH and had fun, got personal advice from famous well published writer, went to a banquet with many people there; went out to fabulous dinner with friends

Thanks for the acknowledgement, Lisa! I think it's mainly because I wrote a lot. LOL.
