I've been working out quite a lot recently, 7k run or crosstrainer, plus about an hour weights per session, alternating body parts, doing this about 5-6 times a week, taking a day off when I'm REALLY knackered :lol: seeing some more definition in my arms and legs, so pleased with how it's going.

I've mentioned before that my morning-person tendencies make it difficult for me to find the motivation to exercise after work, not to mention my hectic lifestyle. So I've been getting up at 6am to give me an hour to exercise before everyone else gets up and the madness of the day begins. I'm concentrating mainly on P90X, with some Callanetics/ my trusty aerobics workout thrown in, depending on how I feel/what I did the day before. This morning, I did the Plyometrics from P90X, which is easily the most high-intensity hour I spend through the week. That workout is so much more difficult than it looks; I sweat like a bull and end up a nice shade of purple. It's nice to feel like I've done something but there's no way I could do that before work, so it has to be the weekend.

Usually on Sundays, Elfin and I do the Yoga X segment but tomorrow, I'm going to throw in another before she gets up. I will decide which in the morning, as last time I did Plyo, I was a wreck for three days.
What, that? It's a spade.

I prefer to exercise in the morning too, but unfortunately it's not an option right now, I have to get the tube to work at 7am and the gym opens at 6:30, wouldn't be time. Getting into the swing of working out after work though.

Been upping my weights recently :D

Aaah, hello seventh circle of hell. It's been a while, honestly I have not missed you. However, I'm sick of wobbling SO tonight I jumped on the satanic horse of doom & managed 15 minutes on my cross trainer before wanting to die. I know I'll pay for it tomorrow, but I will do it again tomorrow.

I've been toying with the idea of getting up a half hour early to do it - I'm aiming for 5 out of 7 days, however most of my evenings involve sewing, so the mornings would be better. I don't know if the clunking of the x-trainer would wake my children though.

If it doesn't wake the children, then it's probably better in the morning, for me personally anyway, I like to get it out of the way early!

I'm actually feeling ok today. I'm tired, but I'm always tired.

I was told on Facebook to not push my bpm to 150, but according to the "max bpm" calculation 150 is fine for me & I have a few bpm to play with.

It can be a lot lower for the 'fat burning zone' anyway, think mine is 120 something. Once I looked at the calories burned and not heart rate, it was 200+ got a bit of a fright :lol:

The monitor on my cross trainer is broken - so I have no idea how many calories I burned. I'll have to check my phone for a fitness app, I put a heart rate monitor on it. My resting bpm is about 50-55.
