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.
steffanie3: Broth based soups are great for this time of year and a FC I did a modified "cabbage soup diet" soup with some boneless skinless chicken for protein, I just searched for an online recipe and left out some things if I remember right, I love cabbage

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?

steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl

glammom: Any suggestions as to where to purchase MCT oil? All new stuff to me. Purchase many items for plan on-line, some at Kroger, some at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Any suggestions of locations to purchase MCT oil at brick and mortar stores?
Dec 11, 2014 15:03:23 GMT -5
steffanie3: GNC would likely have MCT or a health food store that carries Now Brand, that is one easy to find kind.

ttate53787: I have been put on a low residue diet. I am only allowed to eat refined grains. In order to follow this plan now would I just have to give up all breads? Any guidance on this type of diet? Thanks.

steffanie3: I haven't heard of a low residue diet, maybe make a post of a suggested menu you have been given and we could help?

Bryony: After numerous attempts at baking with coconut flour my husband and I just do not like the taste but especially the texture of it. Is there something else I can use in the recipes to replace the coconut flour?
Dec 19, 2014 12:19:20 GMT -5
steffanie3: It depends on the recipe Bryony, is there a certain one you have in mind? Almond flour and oat fiber are used in many yummy baked goods.
Dec 19, 2014 15:07:27 GMT -5
Bryony: Basically all recipes Steffanie. I have so many I would like use. Are almond flour and oat flour and/or oat fiber interchangeable with coconut flour?
Dec 19, 2014 16:01:07 GMT -5
steffanie3: Not really, coconut flour is quite different as it absorbs lots of liquid and works best with plenty of eggs. I tend to like it mixed with other flours.
