I've been stuck at work early during my normal gym time, so this morning, being sick of not moving, I went for a quick walk around two blocks and I feel very good. I think I'm walking home, rain or no rain!

Cool Monday

I did it.

I made it to the gym! I walked 15 on the Treadmill at 3.0.
I was alittle weak. I haven't been able to eat full meals yets so I need to get my calories in to do good at the gym.

Hi I went to the gym again today, I did my lower body strength training, only 12 reps per set though. I also did the treadmill for 3.0 with an incline of 1 for 7 minutes. I still haven't been eating good dinners.

Hi Lessara... thought I'd come by and see what you have been up to... having a struggle I see... this is why I wanted to start the NLGFT challenge... I want to w/o, but I find a ton of reasons not to... but I am doing it steady now and plan to continue on... I hope you are feeling better... you mentioned that you weren't feeling well earlier... I'm ready for this challenge to begin and I am hoping we all can stick with our exercise routines through the whole 3 months! Oh... don't forget to post your pictures, goals, food plan and exercise routine by the 15th... this finish to the LGFT challenge is just 10 days away... then in a couple weeks... we will start it again...

I haven't gotten to the gym which is a bummer. I have a torn left shoulder which the doctor told me no strength training. Half my lower body training requires me using my arms to set the weights up so I can't do those either.

How ever I have not neglected my exercising. I have been swimming every day at least an hour to two. I tread water, which can be tough, I feel my stamina getting better and better. I can tread water for an hour now. I either use just my legs or just my arms. To rest I use both.

Hi all. All I've been able to do for a month is go swimming at night. Lately this week especially I haven't been able to do even that, with the thunderstorms and all. Tomorrow I'm going to try and go to the gym. If I do go, I'm only going to do cardio and lower body strength. My shoulder still hurts and I'm to not do any strength training that might hurt it. I'm to lower all my weights and to do more reps, says the physical theropist.

If I want to get a really intense cardio workout, swimming is the way I do it. Boy it sure gets my heart pumping and my arms are sore the next day. Way to go! You're doing great!

Default Kassie is dusting the cobwebs from her gym journal...

Hi Amazingly enough I am back at the gym! Finally after over a year and a half!! I'm taking it slow.
Today I did:

Treadmill: 2.5 for 5 minutes (easy but my heart did pump)
Cross trainer: 1 for 5 minutes forward and for 1 minute backwards
(Forward was no problem, backward ok, I'm weak there)
I still haven't found a beginning yoga class before or after work. I'm definitely getting a yoga for dummies video, if you know what I mean, to at least learn some of the moves at home.

I had a few things as a result happen to me. I felt sick in my stomach and I had a major headache. To me this means my sugar dropped. Which surprised me. For I don't eat before exercising since its so early (7 am) I usually eat afterwards. This in the past never caused any problems in me.

Hi all, Day 2 at the gym My roommate is going to and he started a month before I did. He didn't tell me for he didn't want to quit in front of me if it didn't work out. I'm having a blast.
Still easy though. I don't want to hurt myself like last time.
What I did:
Treadmill: 2.5 for 6 minutes
Cross trainer: 1 for 5 minutes forward and for 1 minute backwards (Backwards was easier today, will do 2 minutes next time)
Tossed a 6lb medicine ball for 10 minutes with my roommate. Fun!!
(I have to be careful and not twist my back too much)

I did get a slight headache afterwards, but it went away after drinking some water at work and having my peanut butter (breakfast). My muscles are alittle stiff now that its lunch time. Hope that's ok.

I'm very curious about what other ways you use medicine balls as well as the yoga balls. They look very interesting to me.

Hey Kassie,

Sounds like some good work there for your heart and wind.

I went for several weeks when I first started back to the gym where I was getting a bit of a headache when I would push too hard. Just take it easy, mine whent away, and don't have an issue anymore.

You were asking about core strenght. I'd recommend some big compound movements for weightlifting. Squats, Deadlifts, that sort of movement that really recruit a lot of the body to accomplish the move. Some good push/pull exercises for upper body like Dumbbell bench press and maybe a bent over row for the back. Certainly a whole array of things you can do, if you have a certain goal/interest, I'd be glad to help you out with my limited experience, though I'm not as experienced as some.
