Couch to 5k jog/walk today again, followed by pop-pilates butt workout that equaled 30 minutes, so overall 50 minutes of good exercising. As of this morning, I lost another three lbs, making me halfway to my short-term goal.

And thank you, Ron!

Today at rowing our coach was ill, so we didn't go on the water but did a routine on the rowing machines, interspersed with stretching. This was the last class of the Tue-Thur class, so next week need to switch to Mon Wed Fri schedule.

Nice work Ladymiseryali, and look at those results ! Were right at the same range, but my 155 is down from 200, and seems to really like it here!

Ron, my knees hurt reading aobut your stair work!

Jamie, machines cant be as nice as the water, but good for you keeping it going.

Welcome Fitmie, sounds like a good routine.

Today was Kettlebells its a class I paid for, which makes me get there the instructor was going to be on vacation for the first one, so hes doing make ups with each of us one on one. This is the sort of thing where you say oh, Im not really doing anything, this is easy, what? You think I can do another rep?

Abby;
Amazingly my knees didn't bother me at all (and I have a bad one, that is why I only run on the elliptical). Those leg days with squats, extensions, curls, etc.. must be doing my knees some good. Way to go on the kettlebells!!

Jamie:
Now you get to row 3 days a week instead of 2. WooHoo! You'll be around the water so much you'll be sprouting fins, lol.

Fitmie;
Welcome to the group! Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Hello. I thought I shall join in this thread as well....try and keep me a bit more motivated!! I DID exercise today..... I did 45 mins on the cross trainer, 38 mins on the bike, (and cycled to and from the gym as well....not far but still!) and the weights that I have been set up with at the gym. Not so many weights, I think 8 machines, basic ones, but want to build a little bit of muscle, and tone up a bit! (A lot!)

No exercise for me tomorrow, as I'm out the whole day, so will be back on it on sunday!

Did the initial WO for the CrossFit Whole life Challenge: 8 rounds of 7 kettleball swings, 7 burpees, 50m run, in 9 minutes. Supposedly I will improve in 8 weeks after the challenge. Actually I am pretty sure I will - as long as I can stick to the dietary restrictions.
