    I'm still kickin, but had to use two cheats this week. (I was away all weekend and slacked off during the week). I also think I need to bump it up a notch or two for exercise. I am walking regularly and doing some weights now and then, but it's really only maintaining rather than changing.

    Finished Plyometrics. Or rather, plyo finished me.

    I reached an interested stage - where one system fails before the other. About 2/3 of the way through plyo, my leg muscles pretty much had it. Because I couldn't do the exercises 100%, I managed to catch my second wind. So I had a period of time where it was clear my legs were the bottleneck of my workout.

    Our bodies are pretty interesting things when we listen to them.

    Udog - thanks for the update. I noticed we're both down to 1 cheat each. I'll be working on stayin' alive!

    Also, did in fact maintain total weight loss through this week. Total weight loss now, since late June = 20lbs. Haven't been this weight in over two years and am ecstatic to be fitting into all my old clothes and planning on getting new ones on holiday!!
    That's awesome news! Congratulations and well done!

    I hope you have lots of fun (and exercise ) on your trip.

    Maintaining is respectable, though. You are establishing habits be ready to reap immediate benefits when you decide to kick it up again. Thank you for reporting in.

    Here's an example:

    YouTube - Power 90 Ab Ripper Workout

    Is that understated enough for you? This is what I've been doing instead of the Ab-Ripper X, which I can't even come close to doing.

    The next level is the Ab Ripper 200, which is the exact same routine, but with 20 repetitions of each exercise instead of 10.
    Thanks. I'll have to bookmark that for this weekend.

    I walked to school and walked the track a lot. So... that's my workout for today.

    I had to use one of my cheat days last week. So I think that leaves me with 7.

    I trained my legs a second time last night and trained my upper body again today. Higher reps and less sets than on Monday.

    Trin, Pink, and Antimony have been consistent in exercising, but not in reporting. (Slackers!) And I'm pretty sure I'll hear from a couple of you soon enough.
    I'm a PEEEEEE!

    I've also never got my head around when one week ends and another begins, time and me do not get along. Anyhoo, I've had one class cancelled on me this week but otherwise all good, about to head off to my reformer pilates class

    I did weights, mostly training my upper body.

    Didn't walk to school today because it was too damn cold.

    I stayed up past my bedtime so I could squeeze my workout in today. Finished my Shoulder/Arms + Ab Ripper 200 routine. I'm currently sipping on my recovery drink.

    Udog - thanks for the update. I noticed we're both down to 1 cheat each. I'll be working on stayin' alive!

    Congrats! That's wonderful news. I usually get my best workouts in new areas, because I'm so anxious to get out there and explore the area. Good luck.

    Oh, and the 1 cheat thing. Heh. I think I can do this as long as I don't get attacked from multiple angles like I did last week. I'll do my best - all I ask is you do the same!

    So, this was the last aerobics class today. Fitness analysis. I don't have the measurements for my body yet, so I'll post the ending results of my workout classes when I get home later.

    I've been trying to reformulate my goals.. since my original goals in the thread were "show up to every class" lol. My 265 PT score needs bumping up by 5 points on the push-ups (something I am capable of) and maintaining my other two standards.

    I've been trying to find a way to formulate goals on my own to work on. I need something with structure, otherwise I'll never pull it off. So.. I'll try to come up with a plan for these new goals:

    1. At least a 270 on the PT test in January.
    2. Be able to do 50 push-ups. I don't mean the girly, regular push-ups I do right now. I mean the sort where the hands are next to the body, and a lot of triceps are involved.
    3. Gain upper body strength, and gain endurance on the lower body.

    ... That's all I've got for right now. I do have exciting news, I'll be the proud owner of a Wii fit soon, so you can bet that thing will somehow be incorporated into my workout routine.

    Also, there's a new gym in my area I think I might look into. Genesis Athletic Performance
