    Help with dvd choices

    I am actually looking for fat burning to loose weight. I was working with a personal trainer and just want to continue doing this at home by myself. My routines are getting boring and I always loved my Cathe videos.

    Help with dvd choices

    Can anyone suggest a DVd rotation for me that will follow these guidelines? I'd like to only work out 45 min a day, 5 day a week. Something similar to the following...2 days cardio only. And 3 days weights for approx 25 min and cardio for 20. For the weight portion, I'm looking to keep my heart...

    I am just thrilled at the responses I've gotten! This is so exciting for me! Thank you so much everyone! I would like to take a minute and just respond to a few though....just so that everyone understands that this isn't something I've done on a whim. I've been planning on going back to...

    What about my arms?

    I actually have my husband take my arm measurements for me. So I feel that they're pretty accurate. Also, I did do weight training before I was pregnant, but when I got pregnant, I pretty much quit doing anything. So I didn't lift for nearly 8 months. I did gain a lot of weight. And even...

    What about my arms?

    I thought I started this thread the other day but I can't find it. So I must have typed the whole thing and never submitted it. Weird. Anyway, I'm having an issue with weight loss in my arms. If I wouldn't be keeping track of my own measurements, then I wouldn't believe this myself. But...

    What about my arms?

    You may find this very had to believe, but if I wouldn't have been recording my own measurements self, I wouldn't have believed it either. I'm still losing my baby weight. I'm 8 mo pp and have lost 40 lbs. 15 more to go. I've been recording my measurements, that way I can see my results...

    new career path for a middle aged woman

    Energy problem in the morning

    I totally have the same problem right now....not the thyroid, but the energy thing. I was actually considering posting a comment myself, but was happy to that someone already did. Like you, work outs in the morning are really the best time for me to workout because I get my workout in before...

    tweeking my diet

    The cabbage sounds delicious. It's almost like a cabbage and noodle meal only without the noodles. I wonder how many heads of cabbage I'd have to buy for a week? And are you saying you add the chicken to the cabbage then? I wonder if I could just make it all Sun and would it last until...

    tweeking my diet

    My weight loss has been pretty slow for the last 2 months. I can't fit anymore excersise into my schedule. 4-5 days a week for approx 60 min is all I can manage so I'm wondering if I tweek my diet some, if it will make a difference. I try to eat clean, but I'm not 100%. I don't eat clean at...

    Are you aware of your sugars?

    I just jumped into this old conversation because I'm trying to tweak my diet to help my weight loss. So, are you saying that I could be overdoing even the natural sugars? I'm on a 1500 cal diet and I drink a glass of skim milk a day and many fruits. Could this be sabatoging my diet? What...

    Protein shake breakfast?

    I'm trying to tweak my diet a little because my weight loss is going very slow even though I'm execising 4-5 days a week. I have a 7 month old baby, work full time and go to school part time so my time is very limited to spend extensive hours working out. I eat clean now, but I'm wondering if...

    Stretch Marks

    I know it's been a week since this was posted but I just had to make a comment about my stretch marks. I look like I've been mulled by a tiger!!!! My Dr. said that I had one of the worst cases she'd even seen. She said I must have zero elasticity in my skin. I gained 55 lbs and I have strech...

    I'm totally there with you. I actually feel like I've been struggling with my weight loss and I decided I needed additional support (the hubby just doesn't understand....he always thinks I'm complaining, but I really just need somone to talk to). I'm 6 mo pp. I had major complications from...

    What's best for my legs

    Ok, please don't think I'm a dumbo, but I've been doing Cathe for 4 years now (but I took the year off I was pregnant and I'm paying for it now). But what is CLX? I search her video library and I just can't seem to figure it out. I am going to attempt Slow and Heavy 3 days a week and 2 cardio...

    Looking for the best shoes

    I just ordered the Ryka Studio Flex Low from zappos. Price wasn't too bad. I should have them by the end of the week and using them next week. I'll let everyone know what I think about them. I too, have a wide foot and narrow heel. If I find a pair of shoes that actually fit me good, I...

    Looking for the best shoes

    Ok. You're not going to believe this but I've been wearing the same workout sneakers for 4 years now. They are totally broken down and my feet hurt so bad when I do my cardio workouts (not enough support, I suspect). Since I do a lot of Cathe's step workouts, I originally invested in cross...
