Ok, the plan is to do at least 1/2hr exercise every day and stay with it.

Starting date - today! Sun 26/3/6.

Did 15mins walking, 1hr Body Pump then 15mins walking back. Then about 3hrs walking around shopping centre until feet hurt.

No exercise today. It's my day off work and I'm soooo sore from the gym yesterday. I've just started going to the gym without creatine so I keep feeling so disappointed that I can't do what I used to and now it's taking longer to recover. Urgh. Maybe this is the way, maybe it isn't.

e

P.S. Will try to take a walk to the supermarket and back today to at least get moving a bit.

Went to the gym tonight! Woohooo! I totally didn't expect to go, especially considering I take ages to sit down bc my legs are so sore from yesterday. But, went anyway! Did about 50mins of cardio.

Seems I forgot to update for yesterday! Did about 45mins cardio - treadmill, cross trainer, rower then treadmill. Had to DRAG myself through the 10mins on the cross trainer urgh.. felt like I was gonna die!!

Today, same as about about 50mins. Did 20mins on the cross trainer though - much happier. I'm sure the crosstrainer burns way more fat

Did about 1/2hr of cross trainer and treadmill (combined time) then an hour of pilates class. Had fun, worked up a bit of a sweat but didn't wear myself out.

It's time for weights tomorrow! Haven't done them since Sun and I think all the cardio, while doable, slowed my recovery and I'm only just able to consider doing weights again now - Thurs! hahahaha

Did a bit over an hour of cardio today - treadmill 10mins, cross trainer 25mins, rower 12mins and treadmill 15mins.

I've unofficially decided this is going to be my weekly plan for at least the next 8 weeks (my leaving date for o/s):

Mon: weights prog
Tues: cardio
Wed: weights prog / fat burner class (my either/or day)
Thurs: cross trainer then pilates
Fri: weights prog
Sat: cardio
Sun: body pump class (cross trainer first if I have time)

If it starts getting me down a bit and I feel I'm overdoing it, I'll just do a bit more cardio and less weights until my body adjusts. I'm looking forward to it!

Hi Erica, thanks for dropping by my gym log and for your comments!

The 3 mile power walk usually takes me about 40 minutes. I try to aim for an average pace between 4-4.5mph.


Looks like you've got a great workout programme going there too It's also nice to see another lady using weights Why don't you come and join us in the Weight Training Buddies (Babes ) thread? If you've haven't seen it, you can find the thread here: http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthre...93&page=1&pp=15

Erica:

Thanks for stopping by my gym log. Russell is a 26 yr old who joined our local bike club and was a frequent rider. He claimed to be going to school on his Air Force benefits, and cleaned our bikes ("detailed" them) for extra cash. When his wife and he had some relationship trouble, he shot her.
Come by my log anytime!

Wow I didn't even realise there were comments in here! lol ... I haven't checked it in well over a year hehehe... thanks guys!

Demi, you know I could do 3miles in 40mins! I wonder what walking speed I'd need... we use metric system here so I walk around 5-6kph. I did have a good programme going ... actually I might go reread it. Totally forgotten what I was doing!

Right now I'm cycling, say, a weight-based week then a cardio-based week. I find cardio way more enjoyable but I know weights are important too.

I haven't seen that thread, Demi. Might go check it out now

Bruce, thanks for stopping by too Wow, I'm speechless after reading about that guy that joined your local bike club. Absolutely speechless. How did you guys handle all that??????

>>>>Me well I don't even have a bike yet. They only have a 6-week lay-buy policy at the bike shop I enquired at and it's just a bit much for me to do in 6 weeks. And not starting of course means I procrastinate etc etc. I also have NO IDEA what kind to buy and am always sceptical of sales people's opinions (can't help it).<<<

There is an active forum at Team Estrogen, where you can read gals opinions on all matters related to being female and biking. Bike Journal dot com also has lots of threads on topics you might like. I have several Aussie biking pals on BikeJournal.
The LBS (local Bike shop) should be decent as far as advice goes. The #1 thing is get a bike that FITS you. Don't buy a race bike because Lance looks good on one at the Tour De France. Get one that suits your idea of a good day on a bike. My avatar pic is of a Brevet style bike. well balanced, comfortable, goes all day, but a bit slower than a carbon-titanium race machine. In fact it has zero carbon and zero titanium. It does have steel and aluminum parts. Drop me a note on it if you like when you're readier to talk about getting a bicycle.

OK! I'm going to start this exercise journal back up again. Why? Cos I have enveloped my entry into the Body Blitz Challenge http://www.sportzblitz.net/body-bli...llenge-comp.php

I'm going to see if I can combine this detox thingy I'm doing with developing some good lean muscle and maybe even win some prizes in the mean time heheh

The challenge you're about to do looks very interesting ... and very similar to a Body for Life challenge.

Good luck with it. I shall enjoy watching your progress

Hi Demi,

Thanks for the support

I posted three different (yet similar hehe) women's exercise regimens. Which one do you like the look of the most? The first one I listed, Penny's, is so far my fav purely because I loved the results she got with it.

I don't know much about Body for Life really. Actually I don't know anything! Except I believe they incorporate one gorge day a week ... though that may not be true either??
