    Looks like it's going well for you. I do quite well over here. I am 30 minutes of curcit training behind, but most of that was due to Labor Day. emoticon emoticon emoticon

~ 30 Day Reset beginning on: Sept. 1st and my new toy! ~

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

... so I am restarting the 30 day reset beginning on September 1st. On my first 30 day reset I lost from 176 to 158 over the course of 3 months. This was my first 10% weight loss goal. I have in the meantime, maintained my weight and I am ready to try to reach my final 10% weight loss goal of 15 pounds or 142 pounds. Normally in the body weight reset process it is suggested that one should allow at least 6 months for the body to adapt to the first 10% weight loss goal... As of September 1st, I will have maintained my weight for 3 months and I am hoping that that will be enough time to allow me to start losing again... only time will tell! emoticon

*******************

... ok, so as all my emoticon's know, I love, LOVE variety and I am always exploring new workouts and workout gadgets... Last week while perusing FB I found that one of my FB friends bought an interesting piece of equipment called the Step360 ... I have previewed some of the workouts and can't wait to test this thing out!

... In a previous blog I wrote about starting a body weight only program called Piyo... a combination of pilates and yoga strength moves. I haven't discontinued the Piyo workouts, but I have found that my shoulders can't handle the constant pressure on them from the yoga upper body exercises. The culprits that really affect my shoulders are: planks, tricep push-ups and the way Chalene executes the upper body transitions into a standing position & other yoga poses. The exercises are repetitive and even with a chair, I just can't take it!... Over the course of about 8 workouts, done 6 days out of the week, these upper body exercises/poses are repeated over and over again. I have decided that although I am keeping the workout set I will be modifying it. If I do an upper body workout from the set it will be only "once" a week, the other upper body strength training will be done on my pilates reformer or conventional strength training exercises using dumbbells/bands or tubing. I absolutely love the lower body exercises .... they are tough for body weight only exercises and Chalene adds "Piyo slides" that you use while doing lunges, etc. They definitely add more intensity. I bought the lower body strength workouts only because I already had Cathe Friedrich's slides with the covers.

... I should get the step sometime this week and I will definitely update you when I get it. I can't wait!!!! emoticon

    Think I'll try and go along with a Sept challenge. Mine will be based on an iFit workout. Here's to great fitness.

PS- I think you will crank right through this.

    You've got amazing drive! You will get that next 10% kicked to the curb! WOO HOO!

Enjoy the new workout equipment! That step reminds me of the Zumba Riser.

    You did really great on the reset before. I hope it works great again. The step workout looks interesting. My SIL did something like that.

    I am on week 4 of PiYo and it is tough on your shoulders. I have had to stop a couple times and go to childs pose or sit up and stretch my shoulders out to give them a break. But this week it's actually getting much better. I am not feeling it so much.

I am with you on the lower body workouts and the PiYo slides. Love them!

Can't wait to hear more about the step! And hear about your successes!

~ Day 1/60 Piyo ~

Monday, August 11, 2014

... I will begin Week One today of BB Piyo 60 day program. I previewed it over the weekend and tried a couple of the exercises and I really enjoy the structure of this program. Very unique and interesting moves, all using just your body weight.

... As I mentioned in a previous blog, I want to give conventional lifting of weights a rest, however, for problem areas, like triceps, core and lower body, I am going to aim @ training one (... or a combination) of these problem areas more intensively, using dumbbells or the barbell, at least once a week. I have to substitute some of these exercises because of the truncal lymphedema... i.e. substituting tricep push-ups with tricep kickbacks, overhead extensions, etc... Push-up with chest presses

While I can do modified, incline push-ups, push-ups on my knees, and planks with bent arms, I can't do these exercises all of the time... thank goodness for free weight exercises!!!! emoticon

... so my schedule may look like this:

M: Piyo
Tues: Piyo
Wed: Piyo
Thurs. Piyo
Friday: REST
Sat: Piyo
Sun: Triceps/Core or legs, or triceps

I will try to post what I eat and my workouts everyday or most days for accountability.

I am looking forward to my first Piyo workout tonight. I will update later.

    I've heard piYo is awesome. However, do remember that you can't spot burn fat from "trouble" areas!!!

I'm doing a liquid-only fast instead of a solid breakfast and it's working for me as well!
