  1. Ditto! I do WW online, not e-tools, and don't attend meetings. I just think us online members are guinea pigs for the unveiling of the new stuff to the rest of the members on Sunday, LOL!
  2. Oh cool, I just wanted to see what this was. Looks like a wall - like facebook, LOL.

  3. one other thought - is 16 hours a week a maintainable program for you? i mean personally, i couldn't do it with work, social commitments, family and sleep. are you setting up a program that you can maintain? you seem really concerned about gaining weight back, but you know, it's quality over quantity. i don't see how you can do those kinds of sessions day in and day out and not be sore if they are quality sessions. i almost think that you could condense your time and do maybe 10 hours a week (or less!), but make them quality sessions. not saying you aren't putting in quality - but more don't start a habit you can't keep up for the long term, but instead find a way to make your workouts fit into your lifestyle. good luck!
  4. i don't know if you're over training (i'm just impressed you have the time to do all that in one day!). but on the triathlon training, i do have some advice. i just trained for and completed my first sprint tri earlier this year. i've done one other one since then and am currently training for a 10k and another sprint in the fall. so i'm no expert, but i have a smidge bit of a background. i just wondered if you are following a training program or if you were making up your own? i ask because for triathlon training, your program is high on cardio classes and very low on triathlon, for example, you only bike once a week. i would highly suggest getting a structured program for your triathlon so you can finish it successfully. i'm sure with your exercise, you're in better shape than me, but you probably should spend more time on the tri specific training sessions and bricks and less time with the cardio classes. i would suggest checking out beginnertriathlete.com and their free training programs. i suggest them b/c i've used it for my triathlon training and the community is awesome and knowledgeable.
  5. Crossfit is an excellent program! When doing it consistently, I saw lots of results. I would highly recommend beginners look at the Brand X website here: http://www.crossfitbrandx.com/index.php/forums/viewforum/16/?f=16&sid=74059d7b82f8aa7e7fa9cdcec3157228 Every day, the Brand X site posts the workouts with scaling from beginner to someone who can do the whole as posted WOD. For example, yesterday's workout was scaled as this: Big Dawgs: As Rx’d Make every rep ROM perfect Pull ups: Full extension at bottom. Head over bar on each rep (not just chin) , or if you are aggressive try chest to bar. Pushups: Full body touch at bottom, full extension at top(press down with your shoulders) Sit ups: Ab Mat if you have one, otherwise unanchored full ranges Squats: Sink well below parallel full extension at top. Do not be satisfied giving up the lumbar curve in the bottom position or not fully extending the hips in the top. Pack: Same rules apply for form. 50-75 Pull ups 50-75 Push ups 50-75 Sit ups 50-75 Squats Sit ups should either be Ab Mat or full range anchored sit ups Puppies and Buttercups: For time: 20 Pull-ups or 25 Beginner Pull ups or 30 Jumping Pull ups 20 Push-ups or 30 Box Push ups or 35 Wall Push ups 20 Sit ups (do not do crunches) 20-50 Squats (depending on ability) So you can get in where you fit in and achieve the goal of the workout with out killing yourself. Welcome to the madness and enjoy!
  6. You can also try Target. They always have good workout stuff on clearance. And nobody mentioned it..but one thing you DO NOT necessarily want to go cheap on is your sports bra. Make sure you get one that feels supportive instead of one that feels okay but is cheap. A good sports bra will keep you from having some soreness the next day in your back and chest.
  7. I've had the cinnamon roll and the maple and brown sugar versions and liked both. Tastes more like regular non instant oatmeal to me. I guess to each their own.
  8. I'm using Firefox and haven't had any problems posting or editing.
  9. holy smokes..you look like a completely different person! lookin good hot momma!
  10. Agreed! I only got the whole Transfirmation kit b/c I have to travel and stay out of town a lot (it's far enough to stay out of town, but close enough that we drive) and I take the kit with me. It gives me a great workout option in my hotel room and since the weights come in the case..it's very easy to pack up and go. But when I use the DVDs at home, I just use the weights I already have.
  11. You can always buy No Pudge. There is a recipe on the side of teh box for single serving brownies in the microwave and I think it ends up being 2 points/serving.
  12. Haha we have been eating this at my house sans the cream of whatever soup for a while and we just call them sour cream potatoes. one suggestion, if you feel like using a few wpa, make them with potatoes o'brien OR if you feel like taking the time, add the same kidn of veggies (onions, bell peppers) and it's really yummy! I've had the simply potatoes before and thought they weren't core.
  13. i had this stuff baked over brown rice...delish! a great substitute for the general tso's chicken, especially considering i cup of TJ's is 5 points and 1 cup of general tso's is 15!!!
  14. I just saw this, but I wanted to throw water aerobics/swimming out there. I sprained my left knee in February, and the doctors all highly recommended both of these to me.
