Who here has taken boot camp classes? I've started teaching them and would like to know your experiences.
What did you like and dislike about them?
Were they effective?
What activities were you doing?
Thanks in advance!

Not sure if this has ever been posted before but I thought it would come in handy. It gives a nutritional breakdown of pretty much anything you could imagine. Also gives you a fullness factor, caloric ratio etc etc.
Very interesting check it out
Dusted off the eliptical...
Well...it's time to get on some sort of personal band wagon. Tonight I stopped staring at the eliptical, that I seriously had to dust off, and actually used it. Not as long as I'd have liked but it's a start.
I'm glad to have added this community as it looks like a lot of people I know post in here. It will give me some definite encouragement as I'm at the heaviest I've ever been at.
its been a long time since ive posted in here.
whats everyone doing these days?? any new diets anyones been trying and liking?
im trying to get myself back into this mind set once again.....what a battle.

hows everyone doing? feel ready for tank tops and short shorts yet? I was just wondering if anyone else here is doing the 30 day hot yoga challenge at Moksha Yoga on Donald? I am! it starts on friday and I'm so excited. I've done yoga before but not hot yoga. I may be crazy for starting with this intense challenge, but I like to dive right into things.
Anyway hope everyone is doing well with their goals!

Big ol' word for weightloss site
as a disclaimer: I am not currently trying to lose weight. I'm currently trying to gain, which sucks, because I lost another 6 pounds since last Dr. visit. We'll blame that on the cold, though.
I came across this (fatsecret.com
) and figured it may be helpful to others in the community.
Maybe not. I don't know. Check it out. If it's not helpful or entertaining or informative, comment about it, as I have no idea what would be constructive. I'm heading the opposite direction of most of the community members. It seems all Web 2.0 so I imagine it's good by default. Again. Not claiming the validity of the content quality.
From their website:
what is fatsecret?
fatsecret is a new place for people interested in diets to come and find out what works. With journals, tips, recipes and plenty of advice from the community, fatsecret is your one-stop-shop for all things diet – the secret is out!
I know it says one-stop-shop, but I haven't found them selling anything, and they say that they're not affiliated with any diet company (when reading the words diet company, please pause and think about how gross that sounds).
Seems on the up-and-up.
That link again is Mr. Plow
. Hope it helps. :)
Registration and access to content is all FREE.

HOLD THE PHONE!!!
I was wrong!!!
Apparently I've been called back for the FIRST ROUND of eliminations.
...I was thinking that was really quick of them!, lol
So hold off everyone, I'm not a movie star just yet.
This Friday I have to go down to Corydon with 3 - 5 of my 'support people'... who have yet to be enlisted, I might add... and we get interviewed and poked and prodded some more.
Apparently this is just the first round of 4 or 5 rounds of eliminations, so hold off on the champagne and caviar...
Bummer, huh? But hey!
I'm in the finals!
|Monday, March 5th, 2007|
Yes, I'm this clueless about excersize...
Anything wrong with eating before a teeny workout?
Anything wrong with not eating?
Eat then wait briefly?
I GOT THE SHOW!
I got the call today, everyone.
I got the call.
About the Show
X-Weighted is a series of documentaries about ordinary people each fighting their individual war on fat. Carrying between 40 to 150 extra pounds each, they run, climb, pump, bike and dance their way to healthier weights, during periods of four to six months.
X-Weighted records all the plans and pitfalls, gripes and grit that go hand-in-hand with achieving this often-exasperating goal. The emphasis is on the underlying causes and on-going triggers for excess weight as these frank but feisty people grapple with their personal flaws, emotional baggage and suppressed conflicts.
Each episode follows one person's story from fatness to fitness, with the exception of one episode featuring two friends who team up.
X-Weighted includes guidance served up by experts in fitness, nutrition and life management. Fitness Expert Paul Plakas advises on exercise and nutrition to all the participants. And self-esteem expert Fred Connors provides self-confidence support and image tips.

That was pretty cool......
I went down and tried out for that casting call posted here: X-Weighted
It was one of the cooler things I've done. What was interesting was that while I was having my interview, I was paying attention with half an ear to the other interviews going on around me, and my interviewer said something to me that no one else in with me at the time was told.
She told me not to start any new weight loss regimes or to start working out really hard until I hear from them.
Now, that doesn't necessarily mean anything overly important, but it might - you know what I mean?
And seriously - wouldn't it be cool if one of our own community got on the show??
Did anyone else here try for it? How did your interview go??
Gimme the deets.

Well its been a while since Ive updated here. Our bustleing community has become rather quiet. I understand that in these end of winter days its difficult to stay positive about our routines. I know my own experience has been 1 step forward 2 steps back as of late. Im staying positive about my body shaping efforts however, and have re-cemented my efforts to lose unwanted miigis's :P.
The spring is almost here. Good healthy choices for food and beautiful weather to enjoy our healthy lifestyles. In the meantime Tony Little will be my own personal trainer helping me take the necessary steps toward my better body goal.
Do any of you use workout videos? If so what are some of your favorites. Ive personally had success with Tony Littles body shaping workout as well as Tai Bo with mr blanks.
Also I have to say that Nintendos Wii is a godsend to a healthier gaming experience. 30 mins of wii boxing as Ive found is a GREAT way to have fun and to strength train.
Stay positive friends. Let us all know how your doing.
