Default 10 pound Melters - Wednesday

Goodmorning skinny-minis. I think I'm feeling better this morning and hope to do a workout this afternoon. Maybe PUB with about 30 min of something cardio if I'm up to it. I got on the scale this morning and haven't gained anything, which, at this point, is half the battle. So today is No Junk Food Wednesday. Hope you all enjoy it. I'll try to get back later for some personals.

Good Morning Robin and all that follow:

Today I did a 35 minute I- Tread and the Tamilee Lee Web Abs of Steel.

My eating has gone down hill since Thanksgiving. Not with sweets or junk food but all the leftover turkey and stuffing! We had the last of it for dinner last night ( DH did not want Chinese as planned), so I was glad to have it finally gone. Who can eat turkey and stuffing without gravy? Not me! I feel bloated and know that I have not lost an ounce in almost 2 weeks. I just hope I haven't gained

Sounds like you and DH had a nice outing!

Hope your calf finally gets better so you can do some cardio!

High ^^^'s on the weight maintenance, especially after Thankgiving! The 4DS is a good workout. I just wish I liked step. I can;t do Boot Camp because of all the jumping around. I also don;t have the room that you need. I just don;t do those and use the weight parts.
Yes, I got up this moring (4:30) and every morning to work out. It's a habit for me now.

welcome to the world of morning workouts! Keep doing it and you will begin to like it.. I promise!:)

REST, REST, REST, REST....nuf said!

Yes we are proud of you! :7

Please send that soup around! The boards are suffering from every illness you can think of right nowx(

I will be joining you with a renewed attitude too!

Have some hot soup! Michele is serving it.

We are all here to support you... get back on the wagon with us!:D

Have a great day!

~~ Deb ~~

Well, I don't know how this happened, but now I'M sick too! I feel like I have a band around my chest, my ears hurt and my nose is all stuffed up. How bizarre that we're all getting sick. So I'll take some of that soup, please!

Needless to say, Deb, I didn't get up and work out this morning. I have 4DS KB Legs and Core on tap. I'll see how I feel later. Right now, I'm going to lie down on the couch and feel sorry for myself.

Hey Friends-

Get well wishes are in order! I am delayed in my day and will try to get back on post workout/breakfast.

I came across interesting info on staying healthy today. I'll share later.

Good Morning, ladies.....mind if I join you??

I have been working so hard (at work) lately, but the food thing has gone down the drain, and it's showing. Right now, all I'm asking is to lose 5 lbs by Christmas, I'll work on the rest of the "10" after;-)

Work has been super hectic with the holidays coming and we've had some super-sick patients come in! When I get home, all I want is comfort food!x( x( x( x(

Shelley- sorry about being ill!:(

Yesterday I tried Amy Bento's new step workout...holy moly! It's fun, but super athletic. It took me 90 min to work through it! Today is weights, I am thinking of doing Amy Bento's Slow-Mo lower body....

Morning, ladies!

Well, I haven't quite joined the hordes of sickies around here, but I had a foul headache on the way into work, which made me feel rather craptastic. Pure tension. It took a lot of work to keep it at bay. I got into the office and instead of going to work, I did about a half hour of stretching, which helped a lot. It's now down in my shoulders and neck, which is more manageable. And the calf is now wrapped in an Ace bandage, per the PT's instructions.

Dinner was icky leftovers, so I certainly didn't have to worry about over-indulgence! :P I'm really looking forward to some sort of a workout tonight, probably upper body and abs.

Robin - I'm really glad you're feeling better! And I believe I'll join you on No Junk Food Wednesday. I was very tempted to stop by Starbucks for a scone. Thanks for the challenge!

Deb - well, at least it wasn't desserts you've been eating! The holidays are hard. Now we all have to be careful and prepare for Christmas!

Shelley - dang it, I was afraid this would happen! I'm glad you stayed home today. Now rest.

Judy - I can't wait to see your "staying healthy" info!

Hi everyone:

Welcome Amy -- come on in and join us. Don't worry, I'm only down 2 pounds so I'm shooting for around 5 by Christmas as well. I think we've decided to continue this thread after the New Year anyway!! Just to keep the motivation and melting going!!

So sorry for all the sickness. PLEASE stop breathing on your computers!! :)

I'm feeling good today -- a little caffeine always helps. Now, didn't I say awhile back I was doing away with caffeine?? What was I thinking???

I did get up this morning -- not too early though, so only had time to do 25 minutes on the ellipical. I'm going to try and get a weight workout in tonight. Did you say you get up 4:30?? How do you do it?? That's about the time I need to be getting up -- I'm going to do my best -- help keep me on track, will ya??!!

Yes, I'm the cardio hater -- I'm thinking about buying one of those Itrains -- I have cardio coach and even though he has an AWESOME voice, it doesn't keep me on the elliptical longer than just plain old music. Any thoughts?

Hang in there girls!! HEALTHY eating to you all!

Well, I got my workout in last night AND I ate great yesterday and the day before. I hope I can keep this up!!!

Robin - glad to hear you're feeling better!!! :D I did PUB on Sunday and still felt DOMS all through yesterday! I love that workout.

Deb - you're right about the morning workouts... i mean, i wouldn't go as far as to say i "like" it - but i definitely do love getting it out of the way first thing in the morning. when i get back from florida next week i'm going to start working out in the morning again.

Shelley - hope you feel better soon!!!

Judy - can't wait to hear about the interesting info you found!

Amy - welcome!!! 5 pounds is defitely doable by Christmas but not with comfort food, young lady! :P

Hello to everyone else! Have a great day!

Good morning AGAIN!

Work has been crazy, so I don't get time to do personals too often -- but here goes...

Robin -- I love the term "skinny-minis" -- you can call us that anytime!

Deb - Do you think 4DS will motivate me to get up with you at 4:30?? I hope so!! I know I'm going to cave soon!

Shelley - So sorry you are sick! You are a big motivator here -- so get well soon!

Judy - Yes, we ALL need to hear your info on staying healthy -- seems we are having a problem with that on this thread!

Shannon - Sorry about your headache, it is amazing what stress will do to our bodies. So, do you think it is stress that is causing my tummy? ha ha.

TK - So the South Beach isn't working. Like I mentioned before, I eat a lot of their frozen dinners (esp. the pizza) - maybe I should cut back on those. Hang in there! If it was easy, we wouldn't have to have this thread!! :) You are still down weight, so something must be working.

Tneah - 3-4 weeks to get well?? Yikes. Well that means that Lainie, you should be just about over yours!! You ladies hang in there!

Michele - Glad to hear 4DS is working for you!!

B- Glad you did your workout even with your cramps.

And to anyone I've missed -- it is hump day, so let's get over it together, sick or not!!!

Good Morning Everyone!

A big welcome to the new gals here, you can do it, just toss those leftovers already, and don't bring junk into the house until Christmas, at least that is what I plan on doing.

I am feeling slightly better today-thank goodness! Hope Lainie, Shelley and Robin and whoever else has caught this bug is too. Shelley, that is exactly how it starts, so make sure you do rest, I didn't for the first couple days when I caught it and wound up sick for weeks. Plus, you do not want it creeping into your chest.:-( Think lots of chicken noodle soup, crackers, water and other good for you fluids.

I have been sleeping 9 hours a night (as opposed to my usual 7) and this has really helped. My DH still has it, so I am "babying" him too!:-)

I did LIS/Shoulders-the 4DS last night. It felt really hard cause of the cold, but so glad I did it. Today I will do the Kickbox/legs. I have read, so many people got terrific results with inches lost following Cathe's November rotation using the new workouts.

I am PMS'ing so will not weigh myself-are you kidding?x( I am decorating this week for Christmas, yeah.:7 Good eats to you all.
