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.

Bryony: New to this posting thing, hope I am doing it right! Been on plan about 2 mo, lost 17 pounds. Still wearing same size clothes but more comfortably. Which is all good. Question though - has anyone else had problems with loose stools?

steffanie3: Hi Bryony As your body adjust to coconut oil, mct oil, or xylitol loose stools can happen. If you have added those or more of those recently you might need to cut back a little and work up Congrats on the 17 pounds, that is great

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?
Nov 18, 2014 22:06:22 GMT -5
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
Nov 19, 2014 19:52:11 GMT -5
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
