  1. On a bit of a cardio kick!! Did another 5k on tread today. As well as several ab workouts. Ate kinda crappy today, hopefully tomorrow will be much better!!!
  2. Just got back from doing cardio at the gym. Treadmill, 5k , took me 52 minutes! Last year when I did that, it took me about 65, so Im pretty happy with this!!

  3. Today is gonna be a rest day for me. Im so tired today. Gonna hit back tomorrow. Made sure my diet was extra clean and healthy today! Lots of kale, chickpeas, quinoa, and bananas lol!!
  4. Id have to say my toughest was yesterdays workout. I usually only do 2 muscle groups during one session, if I can help it. I decided to do 3, including legs. Biceps, back, and legs. I used a bit more weight than I was used to, and got to the point where I couldn't hold up a dumbbell, and my legs were shaking..but I forced myself to do walk/jog intervals for 30 minutes on the treadmill lol. I know this has to seem sooo pathetic, but for me, I really busted it out, and today Im really feeling it!!
  5. I would love to hear what your chiro has to say next time! I am going to be making an appointment with another one, and will be sure to tell you what he says as well. I also read that even though this condition isnt scoliosis, that it benefits to do exercises and stretches that is for scoliosis. That might be something to look into as well. I'm sorry to hear about your hip pain I get pain in my hips from fast walking/running as well, and my shoulders ache often too. Today felt like a great work out! I usually do legs by themselves, but I included them in today since I couldnt get to the gym yesterday. Cable Low Row- 45 lbs, 4x36 Lat pull down -55lbs, 4x36 Deltoid Fly Machine-40lbs, 4x36 Sitting angle DB Curls-15lbs each arm, 4x30 Standing DB Hammer Curls-15 each arm, 4x20 V squat machine- 50lbs, 4x36 Seated Leg Curl Machine- 40lbs, 4x36 Seated Calf Raises, 45lbs, 2x50 30 minutes intervals on treadmill 3.0,3.5,4.0 mph
  6. Congrats hellbent!! That is such a success!!! Thanks for the reply pphelps, I was seeing one for about a two months, and he would just allign me, and put a thing in my shoe so that I stand higher on the right side..but I didnt see even a slight bit of improvement, so I stopped going. Have you seen an improvement from yours? I might attempt to go again. Did he tell you if your hip is lower on that side as well? He said mine is
  7. Thanks Andrea!! Today was not such a good day for me lol. I had a ton of stuff to do all morning/afternoon, then dinner at my mother/grandmothers house....and then remembered that the gym closes at 6 on sundays. I was looking forward to going very much! Tomorrow is my bf and I 7 year anniversary, we are going to start it off by going early
  8. Thanks for the advice!!! I will try it out next workout. I am a bit nervous lol. I think I will have someone take a picture too, so you guys can see if Im doing it right lol. And thanks Karen, that is so kind of you!
  9. Kareno- I'm struggling with it to be honest. Ive made some mistakes, but giving it my best. I never realized how many things have dairy/egg in them. Its ridiculous!! Not to mention how freaking hard it is to find something that doesn't contain some kind of soy!!! ( I limit soy as much as I can because of a health issue I have, recommended to not have much of it) And Ty for the comment! Itsjustrobbieok- Thanks for the feedback!! I will have to try using a barbell sometime, but I don't think Im ready yet. Im pretty weak, and I shake/have terrible coordination, so I fear I will fall over lol. I forgot to update yesterday, so probably will have two updates today Yesterday: bB Bench press 3x30 25 pounds db flys 3x30 15 pounds each arm Overhead tricep extensions 3x24 15 pound db One arm cable extension 3x24 15 pounds i believe it was db shoulder side raises- 10 pound each arm shoulder press with smith machine- 25 pounds 3x30 2.20 miles on the treadmill, 40 minutes at 3.5 fast walk 10 minutes on elliptical trainer I find that I have a hard time doing some exercises, mostly shoulders, because my right shoulder is lower than the left, and my elbows hyper-extend. Does anyone else have this problem? Also, I stepped on the scale this morning, and I finally hit my 75 pound loss mark!!! So excited!! It took me 3 months to lose 15 more pounds, I hit a plateau, but hopefully this is me breaking through it. I have never seen 190 on the scale before!!! At least not since I was a child lol
  10. Wow, today was a great day!! It has been snowy, freezing and miserable the past few days..and today..it was sunny and warm!! How weird!! I took one of my dogs to a local trail for a 3 mile walk/jog. I seriously suck at cardio.. I feel like im dying the whole 30 seconds I can run lol. Might go to the gym later as well!

  18. Hi there, I have this problem A LOT!! What really works for me, is to think about the reasons WHY I'm doing this. To think about the health benefits, and how much better I feel/will feel. How by taking just a little bit of time out of my day "suffering" ( lol..sometimes it feels like that ) , to promote a better/longer/healthier life...it is so worth it!
