  1. Chemicals can be delicious! Okay, not funny! I think December is the hardest month for me because it is the proverbial "season of eating". You can't walk five steps out of your home without seeing something delicious. My biggest strength, as in every other time of year, is not to let it in my house. I can plan for Christmas dinner but I will never be able to resist a plate of cookies on my counter. I also focus on making things I don't like so I'm not tempted. October does get tough when the weather is colder and darker. I really don't look forward to changing the clocks. On reflecting on the upcoming holidays, I can say that I've learned not to make each holiday a binge-weekend. It's just one day and I can do one day of splurging.
  2. I have to get hubby to get the VCR hooked back up. Right now I can only do Fanny Lifter & Transfirmer stuff. That's okay with me. My favorite oldie is Maximum Body Shaping with Tracie Long. I am going to do CAAWT for 10 workouts then switch. I don't know if I've ever done all the ab work reps on tempo! It's a great goal though.
  3. Here to join an activity accountablity group! I am back on the plan after having my last baby. She's 14.5 months now. I won't get a ton of working out in this week but it's a start. 2/20 Sun-0 Mon-The Firm Complete Aerobics and Weight Training Tue-0 Wed-0 Thu-0
  4. Go, baby, go! I still have much love and affection for the classic Firms. I am just getting back into exercise and The Firm, old and new-ish, will be the backbone!
  5. I'm late to the party here but I am halfway through my first day on the new plan and I could have written what Deborah did. I also skipped fruit because it cost points. I have a lot to learn because I had tons of points values memorized from the other plans but I will learn this way too.
  6. I listened to his podcasts and found them boring. I think I'd be more apt to use them if I were running outside. I can listen to any kind of music and run on the treadmill at certain settings with no problems.
  7. Thanks a lot! That will help. I've had a bit of a setback because I had a tooth pulled. I am resting this week and I plan to just re-start the program next week. I'm trying not to get down about it, I just need to heal up a bit. See you next week!
  8. Thanks, guys. Good to know about not needing itunes. Day 2 was hard only because my lower legs were feeling it. Nothing insurmountable at all. Tomorrow is day 3. So far I've had no trouble keeping up. Anyone doing this on a treadmill? I am very overweight so I make the walking at about 3.3 mph and the running at 4 mph. I don't know if this is intense enough but it seems to be a good fit for me right now.
  9. Well where are they? If I can get them to Windows Media Player, I can get them on my MP3 player. I am doing day 2 today. It's so easy mentally to be knowing the 20 minutes will be helping me get to the goal. I have 4 kids and it's tough to find time.
  10. I don't have itunes but I do have an mp3 player. I don't know if I can get podcasts. I use a treadmill so at this point I'm just doing the intervals in my head. Pretty easy for this first week. I haven't looked ahead at the rest of the program much. I did read some notes that say it's okay to repeat a week if you truly feel you can't move on. Frankly, I didn't know what kind of time-frame was reasonable so this at least gives me a general goal. If it takes me a few weeks longer, I'm okay with that.
  11. I had heard of this program and had no idea it was my exact goal. I want to get to running 3 miles. I hope I can keep up with the program. I have exercised on and off for years (mostly off ) so today's first workout felt good.
  12. I have a lovely flat-screen that dh got me for my birthday. I am lucky to have a large kitchen and plenty of counterspace. I have to cable hook-up so I watch dvds. It's a great way for me to catch up on tv shows I missed. I am working my way through the entire West Wing right now. I am always watching the Simpsons and Arrested Development in between.
  13. Ouch! I've missed a few more days.... trying to not give up!
  14. Donna, you are so right! I just got some Brooks Adrenaline 8s too! I got them at Sierra Trading Post so I didn't pay full price. "They" always say, don't develop a long-term relationship with your exercise shoes! STP has tons of discounted, new athletic shoes. I highly recommend them. www.sierratradingpost.com
