It's not a matter of being good at them it's a matter of giving my arms a rest every ten. I did ten push-ups, about a minute of the 'kick butt's', I still don't know what to call them, and 50 pulsing squats. I did that whole circuit 6 times.

LOVE ALL,

Great strategy Kaitlyn!
I had a lovely home yoga practice yesterday. I am back at the Sierra house and it was a rainy, windy day... not the kind of day one wants to be outside. So I spent about 45 minutes working on difficult poses, meditating (well trying to... not my strong suit. Can you say "squirrel!"), and some vinyasas. Namaste

One of my goals for last week was 10 perfect push-ups. So it looks like you are doing really good. Oh, and I call them butt kicks, but kick butt sounds better!

My advice would be to not wear yourself out too much, or you won't stick with the program long term.

Just getting back to your question. I have been doing "paleo challenge" with my gym. Basically no grains, sugars, or dairy (and of course not junk or fast food). I haven't been very good about logging foods recently, but my carbs are down to about 20% from fruits and veggies. And that is what I think my problem is, just not enough carbs to keep the engine running. Since I am getting a little tired of chicken, shrimp, salads, and fruit (actually there are other foods in there too) and missing my occasional sandwichs, I am probably just not eating enough calories.

The challenge includes lots of workouts and stretching too. We are in the 6th week of an 8 week program. This has been a very interesting test. After all the years here, and well... just all the years period, I know pretty well what my body needs, so I am doing it mostly to support the younger folks at the gym who have never really spent much time analyzing what they are eating. For them it has been a real eye-opener .
Yeah, I've tried the low carb thing but I've noticed if I go below about 80g my brain doesn't work so well. It's optimal at about 120g a day.

Nice! I took yesterday off to watch the NCLS Game 7 and I also ran a 14 miler on Sunday, so today was my leg day. I figured I better get it out of the way early in the week because I'm running another 1/2 this Sunday.
I'm hoping to get under a 2hr finish

Hit the gym uber early today and got there @ 5:30 am and did some tred mill work for an hour (alternated running and walking fast on the incline), lifted weights for another hour (did chest,arms and shoulders) and then cooled down with 15min stationary bike ride.
I then went and got my body fat tested.

The testing showed that I've got 18.7% bf, not much of a change from 6 months ago (18.9% back then) but I did increase my muscle mass by 3lbs
That makes my lean body mass @ 81.3%, I guess that's not too bad.
My resting metabolic rate also increased to 1906.

My testing technician told me not to worry so much about my weight, just concentrate on a clean diet and keep exercising the way I have been doing.

SW, you are a beast - fabulous b/f stats! and the running, my-oh-my
Ron glad to see you finally made it back the gym, I'm sure you are feeling much better now.

Welcome to all the newbies and the returnees. Keep you the hard work, you are worth it! And you will be glad you did.

PRd on overhead squats - 70#. could have probably done another 2#, but ran out of time.
