Default Body Flex, lifelift, or oxycize, anyone?

Are there any other aerobic breathers around here?
I am a diehard fan of the original bodyflex workout, myself~
I'd love to start a bodyflex challenge thread if I had any takers!

8 years ago, I ordered an Oxycise video, which never arrived. I would definitely love to know if it works or not.

Hi, I just ordered Life Lift so it should be arriving in about a week or so. I have tried Body Flex but found it too harsh and didn't get results (longest I ever did it was for maybe 2 weeks, then started to feel pain from it).
I'm hoping Life Lift will be more gentle and more effective. I'll let you know what happens when it arrives! I'd love to do some kind of challenge with it.

I have both Life Lift and Bodyflex, which I love, and had Oxycise, which I didn't like. When I do them consistently, I lose inches........

I haven't been using my Life Lift! I started out with 20 breaths plus a few breaths here and there. And I sometimes do a breath or two but I haven't been doing the full amount and I haven't been doing it consistently. But I should GET ON IT because now that I'm back on low carb and have a pretty small appetite (thanks to LC!!) I bet I'd lose inches if I was consistent.

What kind of a challenge should we start here? Full video (or at least 40 breaths with out without the video) once a day? See how we're progressing in a week and then re-evaluate?

Who is in?

I'd be willing to commit to the 40 breaths a day with or without the video. I do like doing the video with it though..............

I only did 2 breaths yesterday! For some reason my motivation to do this is very very low right now...

Two breaths is better than nothing!! I have been so reluctant to work out lately, as it just wears me out........however, today it felt different doing Bodyflex instead.

I just got done doing the original Bodyflex tape, and then it felt so good that I did the advanced tape, too. I am very out of shape and it was nice for a workout to eave me feeling energized......

I also do breaths in the car, although I did not do that today as I had my son with me in the car and we were talking!!

I also changed my diet from Atkins/Protein Power to Sugarbusters/South Beach (low glycemic, more carbs) I have a little more energy......

I love your quote "sooner or later, I will love to exercise"

And thanks for reminding me that two breaths is better than no breaths

Maybe our new motto could be "I love to exercise!" (a sort of fake it till you make it kind of thing).

An way to go on doing both tapes today!!! Rock on!

Hello Marie!!

I changed my signature....I just have to keep saying it to myself.......

I did feel really great after breathing last night so I think that's a good start!!

I will breath again tonight...how did your day go??

On a diet note, I went back to food combining, the Somersize way. It always has worked well for me and with my son going off to college, I will have more time to cook and experiment.....through my tears as I am going to miss him so much!

Awww... you're going to miss him. hugs. Think of all the space and free time you'll have without having to clean up after a boy! lol. Not sure if that helps or not
I did a few more breaths yesterday but not the whole video. One of these days I'll get inspired and I'll be off on a roll.

Sounds like you have an awesome plan of action and you're doing very well! hugs

Hi Marie!

Today I was out the entire day with my son school shopping and lunch, and coffee..I really enjoyed it. I did not get to breathe yet, but I plan on doing breathing w/o the exercise positions before bed.

How did your day go??

On the diet note, I had a really hard time with food combining yesterday, my blood sugar was all over the place! I went over to more balanced, Zone type eating today and it was better. My son likes South Beach and we are going to do that together before he leaves and then support each other long distance. He and I both lost well on South Beach a couple years ago.
