I've been very diligent in my looging on Myfitnesspal - I've lost 23lbs since mid January and have similar still to go..... I've been doing the c25k - due to one thing or another I never seem to get past week 6 but am not too bothered, still geting out and doing someything and logging it as walking/jogging.
I got the 30 day shred DVD as I really want to start doing some toning and also have something to do on days when I just can't get out - childcare/weather etc.
I did first session today but it's not listed on MFP and I really don't know what to count it as - i guess it doesn't matter whether I log it as long as I do it, but I am a wee bit anal and it also helps my motivation if I can see how many calories I am burning
it was a wee bit tough going on the old abs this morning but I am hoping that will improve - expecting to be sore tomorrow
Didn't have any hand weights so used two tins of soup and didn't have a mat so used the sheepskin rug........resourceful if nothing else. I have a bit of a sore shoulder at the moment so I struggled with the push ups but I gave it all a good go.
and I'm almost 47 so no spring chicken anymore I've had 2 sections and had a hands width split in my abs due to my ginormous babies so not expecting to get too ripped!! I did have a 6 pack before I got pregnant but my eldest is nearly 13 so that was a while ago.
I mentioned on a thread last week that my slim,gorgeous dd who is nearly 19,does shred
she finds it hard!!
so us in our forties are doing well I think!! shes starting c25k with me soon too,ive completed it and joined a running club now....but she got the bug from watching me.....that for me is a bigger result than the fitness achievement I think as im a lone parent
rusmum - yes, I think it depends on your weight - I used to get a lot more calories burned for a walk or run when I started and was heavier. - it'd be like someone of normal weight carrying a big rucksack while exercising, the extra weight works your body harder.
