  2. Good Morning Ladies..... I regret to inform you that I must drop out of the competition. However, I do have a super fabulous reason: I'm pregnant! This also means that I'll probably disappear around here since a destination wedding and a baby in the same year just don't pan out financially. I'll probably check back in at the end of the season to see how you all did. Keep up the good work and good luck to you all! On the up side I can now have pizza while watching the Daytona 500 today, and now feel guilty.
  3. I used to take One-A-Day weight smart....but oddly it made me very nauseous! I've been meaning to check out other ones so I'm eager to hear suggestions also.
  4. BIG FAT 0 for me this week....but at least I didn't gain. FI and I fixed my elliptical!!! SO the weight loss should start picking up. The mall walking is nice but it's no intense cardio workout Nice job to everyone else this week! Next hurdle - behaving during Daytona this weekend!
  5. It def depends on what you plan on doing as far as physical activity, and your foot type. I have high arches and I find that Asics offer the best support and fit for me. Their Gel Nimbus line is awesome - so comfy and supportive; a really stable good shoe. I have a pair from 4 years ago that I still wear as street shoes - they have been through 2 college lacrosse seasons and still have plenty of wear. I run outside in Nike Zoom Milers. These shoes are like bubble wrap for your feet! They're very comfy and squishy for running on a hard surface. I would really suggest trying on shoes that you are going to do physical activity in before buying them. I recently bought a pair of Nike Air Pegasus and they are horrible!! Even just walking I feel pain jolting up my calves. Good luck!
  6. OMG - Today is Thursday!! I thought it was Wednesday - I woke up this AM and got on the scale and took the pic. Right now I'm just sitting down to e-mail it to Ann and thought I'd check out the board first. WTF? I am so messed up this week! Not that it matters I guess but I lost .6 Was kinda depressed about it but then I thought well it's progress.
  7. Buckle....never heard of them - I'll have to check them out! I LOVE Ann Taylor jeans - but they're WAY too short, didn't know they sold tall sizes online.
  8. Anyone who is tall - like 5'10"+, where do you girls shop? To find jeans that aren't high waters. To find shirts that come down to your wrists, and don't end up at your elbows when you raise your arms. To find pants that you can wear heels with and not look like the definition of unfashionable. Any suggestions for stores that are specifically for tall women? Or any stores that have a specialty line for tall women? Usually if you want a tall size you have to order it (like a JC Penney, you have to order tall sizes from the catalog) so you wait all that time to get the item, try it on and ehhh it's not exactly what you wanted so send it back. What a hassle!
  9. I watch it every now and then and I am amazed by how much these girls do in 6 weeks!

I do....that's why I haven't done the Shred since FI has been off work with this shoulder :-/ I feel like a bum not working out but I just can't get myself to workout while he is in the house. I thought I was a weirdo for feeling like this lol
  11. Congrats Marianna - lets keep up the work ladies! A lot of us went off the path this week but lets not get discouraged. I know with the Super Bowl coming up we will all (or most) be tempted - just remember to choose the better treat FI fell off the porch this past weekend and fractured his shoulder so he's in a bum about not being able to go to the gym and said he'd just have to bundle up and go for a brisk walk.....well I got one up on him - I suggested Mall Walking! So that will be out new activity starting today. I've never been mall walking LOL
  12. We went to a tattoo and bike show this weekend, and of course went out afterward. But like you said we had fun! I've been pretty good about dieting since the 1st of the year so a day of indulgence is a good reward. Back on the wagon as of now though! :-)

I was actually gonna ask if anyone had any recs for a good ab DVD, something similar to what Jillian does. Also - Does anyone listen to her radio program on KFI? I've been listening to it lately and it's really interesting and informative! You can find more info on her show and download podcasts here KFI AM 640 More Stimulating Talk Radio - Jillian Michaels.

It really helps when my lovely FI thinks I should sweat a bit more and makes a fire while Im working out (our fireplace is in the living room which is where I work out) he has done it twice now Im like hello I am already sweating I do not need a fire! I never got bored with level 1, I did that level for 10 days, but I am already bored with 2...so I think I'm going to try 3 tonight and alternate the two. And, I know what you mean with the fire. We heat out house with a pellet stove and it is about 10 feet from where I work out and I'm like as if I'm not sweating enough!! Quote: Originally Posted by DallasAshli General Question - how often are we supposed to be doing the Shred? I'm worried that 5 days a week (I work out before work) will be too much and I should throw in a day or 2 of yoga or pilates or something else. But I want to lose weight! So...does the 30-Day Shred mean 30 days in a row? I read somewhere, maybe on SparkPeople, that on Jillian's website she says to do the Shred for 6 days and rest one day.

Hopefully, it goes away after a couple of days, but something definitely doesn't feels right today. That's horrible!! But...take it easy!! Hopefully it's just a strain or something minor, good luck! Quote: Originally Posted by AnnR Quick note, ladies - we had some pretty major plumbing issues at our house yesterday and found out there was a ton of mold. How awful, the one horrible thing about home owning - self maintenance. Mold is the reason why we haven't remodeled the bathroom because I know it's there under those tiles and I don't want to deal with it! Quote: Originally Posted by Kristy! I gained 0.6 this week, but I've been doing The Shred pretty much everyday, so I have no doubt that I'm building muscle. I've gained .8 (although I'm doing one massive workout in about 5 mins and then take my official weigh in pic, LOL) but like you I'm sure it's muscle since I do the Shred everyday as well. Even though I've gained this week I'm happy - my clothes are fitting better, I'm down a notch on my belt, and I'm starting to see definition in my arms.
  16. Level 2 + 80s music = VERY DANGEROUS! for me anyway I have been listening to my iPod while doing he shred and tonight I was doing (level 2) the military presses with the leg "kick" and things got a little out of hand when Quiet Riot came on. We did a cheerleading routine to "Come On Feel The Noise" when I was in HS and I was so reliving it it tonight!! Then the jump rope x3, I was jumping around like a mad woman and wasn't paying attention and jumped right into the couch and onto the floor. I amaze myself sometimes...

I'm excited to be a part of this since I just ate at an all inclusive for 13 days. Holy cow the food was GOOD! Back to reality now... too bad I couldn't have this week be my first weigh in. I KNOW I gained weight while I was away. Oh well... I'm going to the gym tomorrow. Welcome Home & Congrats Kelly!!! Hope you had a fab time! Quote: Originally Posted by deefalvey OK Ladies - I bought the Shred yesterday! Tonight will be the first night. I'm doubling up the DVD with my running, we'll she where that gets me! Took my FI's kids on a 3 mile hike yesterday, it could have been a better work out if the little guy didn't have to dilly dally and start a rock collection about a 1/4 mile into it, but hey it was cute . Good luck this week! A rock collection - that's so cute! Not productive but adorable! :-) I do cardio every day (on the elliptical) and the Shred and I've been very happy with the results thus far! I can't wait 'till NY gets in a temperature range above -15 so I can get outside and run again!

I pretty much talked the whole time which helped distract me from what was happening. She also applied pressure and that definitely helped! I obviously had a very good and professional waxer, as I had heard good things about her from some people in town. She did inform if you have an inexperienced person doing this you will likely be in a lot more pain. She said she actually gets this done herself and knows what helps get her through it. Don't be shy ladies....this is totally worth it!!! Glad you had a good experience!! And thanks to all of the ladies for the tips! Someday I will get the gusto to get a Brazilian! :-)
  19. Quote: Originally Posted by *Casey* How long did yall do Level 1 before moving on to Level 2? A week? I did level 1 for 10 days total. 7 with 2# weights and 3 with 5#. Quote: Originally Posted by milejilo i got my dvd last week and i'm starting it tonight... so glad i found this post =) i have a couple of questions. are you guys doing it every day? any days off? and my fiance comes home late from work around 9 pm. i hate for him to have dinner alone so i wait for him... do you think having dinner at 9:30-10ish is super bad? I do the DVD every day. I think I have skipped 2 days, but that was back New Years Eve and New Years Day. I really enjoy the workout so no matter how much pain I was in I always looked forward to it.
  20. I have a lot of Billy Idol and AC/CD. Also have the usual go-to songs: Let It Rock - Dance, Dance - Gettin' Jiggy With It - Disco Inferno... Cyprus Hill also gets me pumped up, and Daft Punk.....I have quite the variety :-)
  21. Congrats LeAnne and fine job to the rest of the ladies! Great start! I feel like a bum - today is my no exercise day. I know by the end of the evening I'll be at the gym lol :-)

On a side note for Prettyhazardous - I noticed the Ravens on your post......GO STEELERS!!!!!! Sunday should be great! Hope you all have a better weigh-in then me! Don't get frustrated! Like Tami said you're prolly building muscle, which is always good! The more muscle you have the more calories your body burns! Quote: Originally Posted by Kristy! I'm down 4.8 pounds. Woo hoo! I love the first week on Weight Watchers. It's the 2nd week that always get me. Keep up the good work girls! Awesome job! I'm on my second week of dieting (started 1/1) so this is my slump week, only 2.2# :-/
  23. I'll join you! I just got back into using Spark People lately - I forgot how great the food tracker was!
  24. Awesome Erin - thanks for all the info and the spreadsheet! Very nice!!
  25. Those people who have perfect toenails that are french manicured - are those real? I mean do they put acrylic nails on toes? I so envy people who have perfectly cut and polished toes!!
