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.
daisymae27: Hi! I just finished the book, and it all makes so much sense! I just have one question. What amount of healthy fat ( per Smeal or per day) is recommended if you're wanting to lose weight?
Feb 8, 2015 10:51:12 GMT -5
steffanie3: daisymae27 Welcome There isn't a set number, in an S meal you are to eat until satisfied, not stuffed but satisfied. You can have up to a 1/3 of a batch of Skinny Chocolate a day is the only fat guideline I can think of off the top of my head.

steffanie3: You do want to be respectful of things like heavy cream with lots of calories and not as "pure" of fat as coconut oil Does that help?
Feb 9, 2015 22:10:45 GMT -5
daisymae27: Yes, that does help. I have been putting coconut oil with a little THM sweetener in my coffee and then blending it in the blender. It's really good! I guess After years of diets that require me to count fats, I'm afraid I might overdo it.

dynamo: So, I remember reading somewhere that 2 light rye wasa crackers can be used in a FP, but the nutritional info says that 2 crackers is 11 net carbs.. isn't the limit 10 net carbs for FP? Does anyone have an explanation for this? TIA! : )
Feb 11, 2015 17:49:18 GMT -5
steffanie3: Yes two light rye Wasa for FP, one in S, or four in E. Rye is very gentle on blood sugar and they are super low cal

htebe: is there a substitute for oolong tea? seems I have everything but

stacylynn: trimhealthygma4him - what is overwhelming to you? Maybe we can help you!
Feb 16, 2015 10:27:04 GMT -5
stacylynn: htebe - I have subbed green tea for oolong before. They aren't a perfect switch, but I believe they are close enough to sub for one another. What do the rest of you think?
Feb 16, 2015 10:30:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: I agree Green tea can be subbed in Earth Milk so I took that as they were similar. I personally like all kinds of teas and drink both at different times. Many types have their own benefits, I would use what you have for now

kari1052: does anyone have a package of not naughty rice or pasta they wouldn't mind selling. I want to try it before investing in a case of it in case I hate it.
Feb 22, 2015 11:41:28 GMT -5
steffanie3: kari1052 it wouldn't be the same brand, but Swanson's Vitamins sells individual bags of konjac noodles, Miracle noodle brand. Although I prefer THM's (and THM's are cheaper even with shipping) you could get the basic konjac noodle idea that way

perla: Do any of you still eat any of the RAW recipes from Serene's previous cookbook? I would like to be able to implement the "Sun-dried tomatoe spinach pasta" and the "Classic Green Bean Salad" recipes. Are those still within the THM boundries?
