Hey ladies! Of those posting, y'all are doing a great job! I hope the ones who haven't posted as much are also doing well.
I didn't get my morning workout today, so after hubby went to work and the kids went to bed, I did a bit of toning per a routine Jillian Michaels suggested. Now, I can't lift weights because of a repetitive motion injury, but these exercises I *can* do. I had fun doing it, although the push ups were killing me by the end (hey, it's not easy to lift [censored] pounds!)
She outlined this as a "trainer tip" on this last season of The Biggest Loser.
Take a deck of regular face cards. The hearts will represent lunges (I did squats *and* lunges because I'm cool like that), diamonds are push ups, clubs are crunches, and spades are reverse crunches. I wrote them all on each card because I knew I'd forget. The aces represent a 1-minute break. For numbers 2 through 10, do that many reps of that exercise. Jacks, queens, and kings get 10 reps as well.
It'll take between 35 and 45 minutes, and since you don't know what's coming up, it doesn't get as old as some toning routines do, where you do the same number of reps for the same number of sets.
13 points each for Friday and Saturday for me! woooo!
