My workout today: Spew sets (1 minute spew, 1 minute rest. Count your reps for each set) 5 sets: 1) 9 reps 2) 10 reps 3) 11 reps 4) 11 reps 5) 12 reps
Then: 3 sets clean (If you want to see youtube video of 'clean' or 'clean press' check out the crossfit posts of these exercises. They're great!)Same layout, lift 1 minute, rest 1 minute. 50 lbs 1) 8 2) 12 3)12
I did Suzanne Bowen's Metabolism Bootcamp routine using light weights. It takes 12 minutes, always challenging but just when I can't bear to do a minute more, it's over - yay! I've been doing this one atleast twice a week for the last couple of years and I love it. I rotate in other DVD's too and some sprint walking/running. I only workout 4 days per week since it is not my thing.
8 min kettlebell interval training with the DVDs Serene recommends in the book (the Christian girl whos husband makes DVDs also, sorry for the lack of info, I'm in the car) with warm up and cool down. 10 min Tae Bo Express
I love the idea of posting here! It will make me think twice if I feel like skipping working out!

Oh yay! Good idea Danielle! We had been battling stomach flu, so I had missed several days But this morning I am back! I did two rounds from Kelly's Kettle bells on YouTube with a 10lb kettle bell. Then a few lunges and about 7 minutes of ab work.
I have seen fit people with back issues have trouble with using kettle bells. They tend to be a very core oriented workout. You don't whack yourself in the head because control is essential and key in the workout. You aren't swinging with your arms, but using your glutes and core.
I walked/ran for 30 minutes yesterday and today is the Bob Harper short workout on Pure Burn Superstrength dvd.

Storygirl- way to bounce back! Take care that you don't overdo it. Recovery is important. :-)
Shiree- the key to working out with weights - whether kettlebell or any other - without injuring yourself is good form. Check out YouTube videos explaining form. Crossfit is a personal favorite. Protect your back and strengthen those muscles so that you don't have to have back problems!!!

I had 15 min this morning. Here's what I did: 2 sets, resting when necessary: 15 KB (35lb) swings, chest level 15 KB swings, Head hight 10 left hand swings 10 right hand swings 10 barbell (20lb) snatch, left 10 barbell snatch, right I had 2 minutes leftover to stretch and cool down. Boy was I sweating!!!
Today is Tuesday and it's just my 15 min t-tapp plus. I am not doing it to loose weight since it really hasn't worked for me but it makes me feel so good. I do pull-ups, dead lifts and pushups besides some stretches at the gym on M-W-F. I also get in some Red-light therapy and a chair message. I love Planet Fitness! Sometimes I walk outside or the mall depending on the weather. This is the best exercise in my opinion. I also hate exercising unless it's walking.
stacylynn: Hi caroljoy! I have the chocolate chews recipe. I'll post it in the S recipe files and *try* to message you.

daisymae27: i made the mayonnaise in the book, and I really don't like the taste. It leaves such a bitter aftertaste. Any suggestions on how to tweak it to taste better? If not, is there any acceptable ready- made brand?
Mar 9, 2015 19:42:39 GMT -5
steffanie3: daisymae27, it is probably the olive oil I like it i something strong as is like a curry chicken salad, but for everyday MCT for the olive or part of it appeals more, avocado or a light olive oil too

steffanie3: Green pea flour could be used in an E setting, if you have a specific recipe asking in above forum we could give it a look payeville
Mar 10, 2015 14:26:43 GMT -5
steffanie3: crazyabt6, did you use the homemade flour called for in making in the first step?

steffanie3: gram42can, nope Cheerios would be a no go on THM
Mar 10, 2015 14:29:07 GMT -5
steffanie3: perla, I don't have those, but if you post ingredients in a post above we could take a look or other mamas might spot it that do have it. The chatbox questions are easy to miss because they can scroll by without mamas seeing them

solagratia: I'm new and not sure how this this works...new to THM too and have a question. Appreciate any help I can get.
Mar 16, 2015 2:19:18 GMT -5
solagratia: I've been doing THM about 2 weeks and I'm starting to loose a bit of wieght but my breath has become strange. I can't smell it but my husband says it's a bit metallic and quite strongly ammonia-like in its smell.
Mar 16, 2015 2:20:04 GMT -5
solagratia: We're concerned since I am nursing our 11 month old. I've had this happen before when I've tried to loose weight while still nursing. But years ago (before my childbearing and nursing days) I lost weight when needed without this side affect.
Mar 16, 2015 2:22:19 GMT -5
solagratia: My mild supply seems fine, but we are concerned about how this could affect the baby or if something is wrong with me. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks

steffanie3: solagratia, it sounds like you are in ketosis are you mixing up your fuels well? If you would like you can post a few days menus in a thread above and the ladies are great about helping make suggestions

Dutchi: Is there a limit for how much almond milk you can use in a meal...any category? For example...can I use 1.5 cups of almond milk in a smoothie with whey and berries and still have it be a FP? I find the ice waters down the flavour too much for my liking.
Mar 17, 2015 12:36:37 GMT -5
Dutchi: I bought some whey powder at the bulk food store. Most recipes call for 1 scoop. Can you tell what 1 scoop would equal...1 tablespoon...2 tablespoons?
Mar 17, 2015 13:14:00 GMT -5
steffanie3: Dutchi a cup and a half can work specifically in that example, typically it is good to stick to a serving is a good idea
Mar 22, 2015 15:50:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: You might have to check with the store to be sure, a typical scoop is 1/4 to a 1/3 but they can vary a bit. For protein you do want a whey protein isolate, cross-microfiltered preferred.
