    Done, but not progressing, and feeling lethargic.

    Going to tinker with my diet more.

    Completed my cardio day and went for a 60 minute walk, which completes this week's goals.

    I've decided to add some simple interval training to at least some of my cardio days. Today's elliptical workout looked like:

    Total: 30 minutes
    5 minutes warmup @ lv 5, ~50 RPM
    2 minutes high intensity @ lv 10, ~70 RPM
    3 minutes low intensity @ lv 5, ~55 RPM
    (Repeat the 2 min/3 min = 5 min blocks until the timer reached 30 minutes)
    cooldown

    Hardest cardio workout yet!!

    Here's a question ---
    I'm do mostly elliptical trainer for 30-45 minutes at a pretty good pace daily. I hope to have the weights for upper body and lower body done more regularly this week. I feel like my arms/upper body in general is only getting weight training attention. Do I need to do more exercise besides the weight training? Any suggestions that don't involve elliptical machines with the arm holds on a cross trainer?

    Thank you!
    Congrats with sticking to it.

    What kind of exercises are you doing? I find elliptical is a pretty good all around exercise, and you can always deemphasis the upper body when you do it. Just hold onto the poles a bit more passively and let your legs do the work.

    As did I! Don't let the fact that you have one more cheat than me think this is anywhere near over.

    Glad you got finished. What type of progressing are you looking for?

    I find that 3 weeks of no progress does indicate it's time to shake things up a bit.

    I have a question.

    If I'm going to fast for 24 hrs., should I exercise during that time?

    I wouldn't. Your body needs fuel for exercise. I'd take a break. I wouldn't consider it a cheat day or anything like that, though. Just being smart.

    This. In order for exercise to do any good (instead of actually doing harm), you need to replenish all the nutrients you just used. I suggest taking the day off as well.

    I guess we'll find out in 5 months 1 week... if you can last that long.

    Run/walks today on the trails. I didn't jump into full blown running since I was tired from studying and swimming yesterday.

    Yay, got my workout done.

    I have noticably more energy and stamina. I'm down only two pounds but that included a PMS week with preschool fundraising chocolate bars in the house. (Just don't even ask for a number.) My clothes are fitting better. I'm actually just happy I'm building muscle, that's what I really need. I really want to do something other than stationary biking but I don't know what to do!
