Oh Cendrine, I'm so sorry you're under the weather! Not a fun way to start the new year! Have some chicken soup! I watched Dr. Oz today (never seen it before) and he confirmed chicken soup actually helps with cold and flu symtoms and speeds recovery! Hope you're better soon!

Thanks for your insights into 2013 fitness goals! I see you both as good models for myself to explore what my own body needs and reacts to. I really need to be less of a follower and make my own decisions. I have really cleaned up my eating in the last 2 years with some good advice from this group! I sure notice the difference with some bad eating the last couple of weeks over the holidays.

My health/fitness goals for 2013 are to concentrate on lower ab strength and I hope to be able to master the horizontal conditioning dvds by the end of the year. I also want to continue to explore cleaner eating and how my body reacts and to decrease the amount of steady state cardio and to use more HITT/Tabacata/Metabolic training for cardio and try to do these workouts early in the morning.

I love that we all have specific fitness goals for 2013. I think it helps so much to be focused and to have a specific goal!

Jo, what a great goal, 20 pushups! Now my issue is I can do 20 pushups on my toes probably a little more and I can keep with Cathe on most weights but I feel like my body is to thick/heavy in some spots and I still have such a belly! So interesting how every body is different.
Are you sore from the workouts???

Cendrine, I sure hope you are feeling better soon! I'm just about over it I think. I did workout yesterday, Athletic Training, and sure could feel that my energy was still super low. That's neat about the soundtrack in HITT, I wonder if Cathe saw that movie with her boys? I love your goal of being able to complete Tabatacise (one of my goals is to learn to spell it). I'm really curious about that workout!

I haven't received my calendar or my workouts yet. Today dd, my mom and I are going crosscountry skiing, I'm going to see how tired I am after that and if I'm ok maybe I'll do a horizonal conditioning dvd . I'm off work/kids school until Monday after we feeling better/the entertaining is done so we can start to do some projects/fun stuff.

Kim, I'm so happy you got the DVDs! Have fun with them!

I have not been able to work out and my eating has been less than stellar... So much for that, but I am feeling like I'm over the worst of it. I had two nights of fever, so much so that I woke up drenched, even my hair, but I think it nuked the bug out of me because I don't feel feverish today and have no headache either. So I'm thinking I'll be ready come Monday to hit it hard!

Jo, such a bummer when life upsets our fitness plans! But we know how to pick up where we left off, right?

Oh how frustrating Jo!!!! Good luck on the class
You are right that I would love this series. Did chest/back//shoulders and added on the 100 challenge. I think I will be feeling it tomorrow!

Sure hope you are over the worst of it Cendrine! Are you taking it easy over the weekend?

Cardio leg blast and 100 rep challenge (hip thrusts) done. Dh is doing the 90 rotation with me. Feeling my shoulders from yesterday and DH is complaining about his chest.

How is everyone else doing? Hope everyone is feeling better!

Well can you believe it? I've been off and on all weekend still struggling with migraines (what's going on???). So I missed a couple of days of working out. I decided I'm going to start the rotation over tomorrow.

Kim, I'm so happy for you your DVD's showed and up you are on the train! LOL! Oh, and I have been sore this week but loving every minute of it! Hope your calendar shows up this week!

Cendrine, I hope you're over being sick!

DH and I started spring cleaning today. Yes, started with the office and we are sorting, throwing, shredding and collecting for Goodwill. I feel good to work through the clutter! It's way over do!
