  1. Back from Disney.... and I gained 4 lbs! I have the feeling its mostly water weight... who gains 5 actual lbs of fat in less than a week? So I have been drinking gallons of water since we got back home last Friday and lost over half of the weight I gained. Now, to get back to business! I have a feeling I may have to hold back a little this week until I get back into the swing of things. Then its back into beast mode.
  2. Somehow, I have injured my ankle. Jumping jacks are a no-go today. Does anyone have any ideas for what to do instead? I was thinking of shadow boxing or something like that to get my heart rate up a little.
  3. Thanks, Rik! good advice. And for the record, I did 2 miles (I know, I know.. short run) in about 20 minutes today.
  4. Ok, so it is SO gorgeous outside today and I just cannot justify staying inside and doing the bodyweight routine. I'm going out for a run.
  5. Just checking in. Did the same thing i've been doing all week... feel good about advancing on Monday, I just don't know which things and how much to advance. I'll probably end up increasing the planks and pushups and leave the rest alone because I am still struggling with getting through them. If I can, I may lower the reps on the rows and increase the weight... of course that all depends on whether or not we can get some heavier dumbbells this weekend.
  6. Same as Monday. I have found that doing the same routine 3x per week and then switching it up with more reps/different modification every Monday works well for me. Now, the question is whether or not to keep logging 3x/week as I do my exercise (it does keep me accountable) or just log once a week since I am doing the same routine all week long. Prisoner bodyweight squats: 24/22/20 Pushups (on knees): 12/10/10 Lunges: 24/22/20 Dumbbell rows: 18/16/14 Planks: 35/30/25 Jumping jacks: 40/35/30
  7. I just recently accomplished my goal to be able to fit into a pair of jeans I had been keeping around for years. They are size 6. So right now I dont really have any "look good in these clothes" goals, but I do have a "look good naked" goal.
  8. Never have, but I would like to. You should also check out this thread.
  9. Hi Kat! Thanks I'm just feeling my way through right now and hoping I am doing it right! ----------------------------------------------------------------- I decided to give regular pushups a try today. That was an interesting experience. Needless to say, I could not complete one. LOL. I got about halfway up and got stuck. *makes a mental note to add "do a regular pushup" to my list of goals.* Prisoner bodyweight squats: 24/22/20 Pushups (on knees): 12/10/10 Lunges: 24/22/20 Dumbbell rows: 18/16/14 Planks: 35/30/25 Jumping jacks: 40/35/30
  10. I am 5'4 as well and began at 145 lbs. Though I am not a teenager anymore. lol. I am 25 and the mom of two small kids, so 145 lbs definitely sits differently on my body than it would on yours, but I just wanted you to know there is someone out there that began around the same weight. I saw myself getting flabby and I knew it, so I put a stop to it. That was about a year ago and now I am sitting at 127 and looking to gain muscle (which was the reason I joined here a few weeks ago). Its a great place with great people and a HUGE wealth of information. Good luck!
  11. oh nooooooooo. LOL. I am on my knees when I do these. I WISH they were regular ones! I should probably go back and edit that part.
  12. Today was the same as the past few days... but so as not to completely bore you, I did write a blog post today about my date with the scale. I WILL be changing my routine and upping my reps on Monday. I just haven't decided which ones and how much yet. Prisoner bodyweight squats: 25/20/20 Pushups (on knees): 12/10/8 Lunges: 25/20/20 Dumbbell rows: 16/14/12 Planks: 30/30/25 Jumping jacks: 35/35/30
  13. Everything about the same as it was on Monday. I wore myself out yesterday with a lot of lifting and moving things around (we got a new bed) and my muscles were sore, so I decided to take it easy. I've also got some goals for myself which I will go into more detail about when i've got a minute. Prisoner bodyweight squats: 25/20/20 Pushups (on knees): 12/10/8 Lunges: 25/20/20 Dumbbell rows: 16/14/12 Planks: 30/30/25 Jumping jacks: 35/35/30
  14. Today: Prisoner bodyweight squats: 20/20/20 Pushups (on knees): 12/10/8 Lunges: 25/20/20 Dumbbell rows: 16/14/12 Planks: 30/30/25 Jumping jacks: 35/35/30
