also I don't want to do high intensity elliptical biking for the simple reason that I don't want to end up with hugehumongous godzilla legs, so I prefer longer sessions at what to me and compared to what i used to do is medium intensity.
So Kyuuei had a pretty good idea: Instead of having 1 or 2 cheat weeks, why not have cheat days instead?
The idea is each person will have 10 cheat days instead of just 1 cheat week. This is in addition to planned vacations, injury, and sickness. So if your goal is 4 days of cardio each week, and you only exercise twice, you lose 2 cheat days.
If there isn't any major dissent, I'm going to change the rules tomorrow on this.
For the curious, why 10 days? I'm a believer in the 10% rule - you can cheat 10% of the time and not notice a significant difference. (Unless you are going professional grade.) Since 4x/week is pretty common here, that's 4*26 weeks = 104 exercises. 10% of that is 10.
ok had tons of stuff to work on at home yesterday one of which was to finish putting the kids trampoline up. limey did the super hard stuff but i did spend over an hour putting up the safety netting which was a pita and now i have a massive blister on my right middle finger. not pretty!
if i were to guess, i probably burned between 800-1000 calories out in the heat yesterday and about 800-1000 today mowing and trimming the lawn today.
sooo, tomorrow morning an hour of bootcamp at the gym and 30 of cardio in the afternoon at home (elliptical).
<--- badass humoring appreciated, but not mandatory.
And exercise at least 4 times a week, which I mostly already do, but have been busy lately. I'm also going to check out a local yoga class next week.
I want a bikini body, too, dangit!
Glad you can join us. Those sound like admireable goals to me. That detox thing is interesting. A quick glance makes me think that diet tries to balance your pH levels in your blood stream by increasing alkaline foods and reducing acidic ones.
.... I have no idea what that actually means. Did it make me sound smart?
Also, I've officially decided I'm doing this workout to work on my 'bikini body'. Do they sell manly bikinis with lightning bolts and intimidating pictures of fire?
