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.
gs3691: Hey, everyone. I need help! I started off so well, I lost 17 lbs. and was doing great! Then, well, summer happened, and I fell off the wagon. I got a call today and my doc says my bl sugar is too high and also cholesterol. I feel like such a failure!

Aug 13, 2014 12:32:22 GMT -5
mandy140: Where do I find the recommended items and where to buy them? I thought they would be on this web site. Like THM Sweet Blend, Whey powder, Gluccomannan, Konjac noodles, Chana Dahl beans. I can't seem to find my way around.

steffanie3: The Trim Healthy Mama store is http://store.trimhealthymama.com/ so far they have only released the sweeteners and Whey protein, the other items are "coming soon" not sure how long it will be

stacylynn: mandy140: I bought the konjac noodles and gluc powder at: www.konjacfoods.com, but found the chana dahl on Amazon! Check out the whey powder on www.swansonvitamins.com. Hx food stores and Grocery Outlet may be local options for you as well.

mandy140: I have a question about Whey Protein Powder. I read Serene's article on Whey, friend or foe? I checked Swanson's web site and there are so many Whey Powders there I can't find the one Serene recommended; the CFM. How do I know which it is? Thanks.

farmerblacks: I did THM for a few months and loved it. I got away from it when I had to have 2 surgeries in 6 weeks. I would like to get back to it, but now my husband has to be on a low sodium diet. Are there any THM families that also do low sodium?

vintagejva: If brown rice is acceptable on THM, can I then eat brown rice pasta?

steffanie3: vintagejva, the bottom of page 348 is a good reference for this (more as a side).

robbiesnest56: Do you make the ice cubes out of whole fat and low fat coconut milk so you have both options? Are they both S?[br]
Aug 20, 2014 18:24:44 GMT -5
ggwells: Ok new to the site. Want to keep it simple. I understand not to mix high fat with carbs. I love having eggs for breakfast sometimes. So can I have egg burrito with bacon. Then have to S meals for lunch and dinner?
Aug 25, 2014 5:18:51 GMT -5
steffanie3: All coconut things are best thought of as S, but you could use a small amount for FP robbiesnest56
Aug 27, 2014 0:55:38 GMT -5
steffanie3: ggwells, if you purchase some low-carb tortillas you could have a S meal and enjoy burrito. For how it effects lunch and dinner on THM you simply need to wait three hours before you next meal and switching fuels
