At this point I’m going to have to shift my workout from mass-building to fat-burning. I build muscle really fast and I’ve gained almost an inch on my waist just from the bulk of my abs.

More cardio, less power-cleans! Hopefully I’ll be able to lean out over the next couple of months!

I really need to work on my arms and my tummy.

Darling Husband and I are doing spin classes together 3-4 times a week and I am doing body pump twice a week.

On the weekend, we try to do something outside together, hiking, canoeing or even just a walk.

I am loosely following WW now and plan to follow it more rigorously when our vacation is over later in August.

I got an iPhone app, free, called “MyFitnessPal.” It counts calories for me when I enter what I’ve eaten or how long I’ve worked out doing what.

So far, so good–lost a pound in a week and a half, which is about what I set for the goal… (it lets you choose your own goals.)

@bridget.sutter: I am SUPER interested in kettlebells.  Are you going to a trainer or doing the workouts at home?  I’ve been doing tons of research on kettlebell dvd’s and have found some certified trainer kettlebell dvd’s (Jessica Huthmaker, Sarah Lurie and Lauren Brooks) that look like they’d be safe and effective.  From what I’m reading Jillian Michaels kettlebell workout is absolutely horrendous and she doesn’t practice safe form.  I’m trying to drop 15-20 lbs in the next 2 months, how often are you working with them?

I’ve lost 20 pounds eating and doing the C25K. I have 10 more to go this month and i’ve lost 2 pounds already. 80% of losing the weight is eating right. I dont drink anything but water and barely have any cards. Mostly protein and veggies.

Spinning a few times a week

Pilates about once a week

Yoga for off days (DVD at home or at the yoga studio) and to “re-charge”

This has completely changed my body for the better and I feel amazing!

Also, I take Genesis Today supplimetns like Power4 which gives me great energy and regulates my blood sugars so I don’t want to overeat and binge.

I have started going to the gym during my lunch break (we have a gym in the building). It works out perfectly because at the time I go TLC has on wedding themed shows (Say Yes to the Dress, Four Weddings, etc.) so it really gives me that extra push I need to get through the work out. I have been going almost every day since last Tuesday (I was off on Friday and too tired from traveling over the weekend on Monday). I’m hoping to see some sort of results soon.

I go to a Zumba class 3-4 times per week, and then use some weights for my arms.  I LOVE the Zumba class!

I had been walking 4-6 miles 3x per week, but I lost my motivation…  I really need to get it together again…  I don’t know why I am so unmotivated… smh

Im doing low-carb, no more than 40 carbs and I hav lost 14 pounds in 2 months without really exercising reg, however I am a nurse and spend 30 plus hours on my feet. I make sure I have a cheat day at least every 2 weeks and make sure I change up my menu every two weeks as well. So far so good:)
