Motivation is needed!!!

A little background:

6 years ago, I overextended the ligaments in my knee, and since then I've had trouble doing high impact exercises. I cannot jog, I can't do anything too joint-intensive, and I certainly cannot do things like Zumba, Aerobics or Step classes, for fear of misstepping and being immobile for another 6 weeks.

This has happened several times.

Through my knee, I get the occasional pain in my ankle joint and in my back. (Whenever I stay at my parents' house, this back thing is exacerbated by their terrible beds I have to sleep in)

Bring on T-Tapp. It works, it helps my knee, but I cannot last more than 8 days and then I get so bored and annoyed that I practically lose the will to live!

I have dusted off my bellicon rebounder and have decided to spice up my life and get some real cardio and resistance training this way. I mean, walking the dog 45 minutes a day (90 on weekends daily) is all good and well for health, but it does not do much for anything else...

I will try and do T-Tapp basic workout plus every other day (it does really help with my joints and the whole losing inches bit) and try and do 15 minutes minimum on my rebounder daily. I know some days that life will come up and I won't have too much more time, but I think 15 minutes daily is workable.

Here's where you all come in: I need accountability! I need people to tell me to get off my backside and get moving, and I am happy to share my motivation with others too.

In simple terms: I need exercise BUDDDIES, LOL!

Anyone up for a JUDDD BUDDD exercise habit no excuses thread?

Not sure if there's any interest, but I need a group of tough people who won't take no for an answer to be motivated by and to motivate to really make this into a habit, and not a once in a blue moon thing!

All exercise is welcome, just as long as you are willing to commit to a daily moving of the body for health!

Wanna join? (I'm a mean lady when it comes to motivating, I'm all about tough love and I will find you, LOL)

I'm in.

Once you get into the habit motivation comes from how well you feel but I know it's tough to push through that first month.

I recently committed to doing my HIIT workouts on UDs and moving my butt on DDs (cycling, swimming) I've been lazy and only done anything three times a week for months.

So Mimosa - have you done one of your workout today?

Yay!!!! Thanks for joining! We should think of a name and post a challenge... Here or in the Challenges board... Let's see who else is up for some Kickass JUDDD BUDDD motivation!

.... Ok... Embarassed now... I'm admitting to not exercising yet today.. And now I'm sat at my desk at work! I'm committing to my T-Tapp this early evening, doing 20 minutes, and then taking the dog for a walk for at least 45 minutes.

And you???? What's on for today?

Well, managed to already get in some unconventional exercise: I had to vacuum my house and do some mopping and make beds as we have unexpected guests staying with us tomorrow evening. Did it at high speed in my hour lunch break, so now I'm all hot and bothered, LOL!

Will do my T-Tapp when I get home this evening and then go for the walk with the dog... All in all, it's turning out to be a pretty good day for exercise!

walmart has this little exercise bike. You can put it in front of your couch and use it while you watch tv. Its just the feet peddles, not the seat or anything. Its like $20 bucks. I have a client that uses it. He had a stroke (left side effected) and a big bike is not something he can use. I put this up to his chair and he uses it for an hour a day watching Ellen!!

Ok, I need this. I always have the best of intentions, and the days just go by with me doing nothing.

Today, I will do squats, pushups and planks--2 sets.

I would like advise on how we get the fat out of the mufin top? If i could lose that roll that goes all the way around i would "look" much better in my clothes instead of still hiding in my old 2X.. I have started a walking plan every day to get things started due to i dont get up and move.. any ideas for me?

Walking is a great start, Kimberly! Be faithful to at least 30 minutes of brisk walking every day, and you will begin to see improvement.

If there is any way you can incorporate some serious cardio into your life, that will burn the muffin away even faster. Too speed up the cardio burning, do it in a fasted state. There is lots of research showing that fat burn increases dramatically when doing cardio in a fasted state.

On my DD's this week I have been really loving the workouts, both cardio and strength training. Not only am I doing a good thing for my body and having fun, it's also making the DD time pass quickly!

Kimberly, just popped into my head: Do you have access to a swimming pool? New research is showing that exercising in cool or cold water really speeds up fat loss.

Taking a water aerobics class or just swimming laps or water walking is great.

DH bought me Speedo Aquafit Water work out "weights" for my birthday last June. I love them!

I personally love swimming as I hate, Hate, HATE getting sweaty. I also remember when I was on the swim team in high school (at 215lbs) and getting so very mad that I didn't lose a single pound. I did, however, lose about 2 sizes in jeans so I'd say it would be very good for getting rid of the muffin top, just be prepared that the scale may go rogue on you for a while while you're trading fat for muscle.

Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately we don't have Wallmart in Germany... And I need a bit more than sitting and spinning some wheels... Sounds like a great way to exercise when one is not mobile due to circumstances, like your client. How does he like it?

How did it go? Feeling the pain today?
I used to work out with a PT years ago, before my knee got ruined and I loved it... He always managed to nearly bring me to tears, so I know he was good!

I'm a fan of T-Tapp, she has great exercises that really whittle away all that annoying middle fat and it makes you feel great in the process! And 20 minutes daily already give great results!

So... How did it go? Did you manage a session?



I was a good girl yesterday. I planned T-Tapp and walking and managed to do both, so I was suitably energised and happy with myself by the time I went to sleep! Slept well too...

Today, I'm doing T-Tapp, and rebounding for 10 minutes, as well as my dog walk (that is a daily thing I REALLY cannot go without). I haven't rebounded for a long time, so this will certainly be enough I think to start with! Will be aiming for 30 minutes daily once I get fitter.

So what are you all planning for today? It is said that it takes a minimum of 3 weeks to set habits, so let's all try and move ourselves every day for the next three weeks!
