    Team Skinny Valentines Exercise Challenge

    So the girls from Team Skinny who are trying to reach their ultimate weight loss goal by Valentines Day Weekend need an exercise challenge to help motivate them as we all seem to be wanting Christmas holiday to extend more and more into January...and so here it is.

    (To keep the most recent participants, targets and updates, copy the most recent list to the end of your post and update your target/exercise done)

    Please note that RawrGirl's minutes are based on 5 weeks, not six, as she has to weigh in a week early since she has a Valentines Day ballroom and dancing event to attend on February 9th.

    For anyone who is nearing their ultimate goal weight and wants to join Team Skinny, our weight loss thread is here (Team Skinny Ultimate Goal Challenge).

    Good luck to everyone!

    RawrGirl's Weight Loss Goal: <135 (Dec 21, 2012): ***129*** -- DONE!!!

    Maintained for about a year and a half, then gained who knows how much over this past summer. Refuse to get on the scale, but am guessing around 150lb.


    RawrGirl's first mini-goal: Get under 31 inch waist and out of 150's

    RawrGirl's second mini-goal: Get under 30 inch waist and out of 140's

    RawrGirl's Christmas Goal: Get to 29 inch waist and out of 130's

    Thanks RawrGirl - the challenge worked really well for me last time so heres hoping it will do again. The six weeks covers the kid's half term (back tomorrow) so a good chunk of time for me to focus on.

    I am intending to do 20 min cardio and 10 min toning 5 days a week but won't split it prescriptively here - anything is good!

    Made a start today already

    Hi Nettee, glad to to see you here!

    RawrGirl has to split it, or she will fone her way out of cardio, lol.

    Well, RawrGirl FINALLY exercised today. Basically did her version of the Shred, as when she tried her other Jillian Cardio DVD it was much too slow with lot of low-intensity mixed in. But, the high-intensity stuff (like 180 jumps) gave her new ideas to mix up her cardio portion so she doesn't have to be sick of skaters and jumping jacks all the time.

    So RawrGirl has added 180 jumps to her routine. Actually she is trying to make them 360 jumps as she will have to learn how to do that for figure skating eventually. Right now, she can jump about 3/4ths the way around. She has no idea how some people do double and triple axles.

    Anyway..another modified Shred workout down.

    Did my Abs routine this evening - not done it for ages - easier than the shred really but the crunches do go on for longer so am pleased to have completed it. Will go round my four beginner routines a couple more times and then maybe give the harder ones a go again. Really ought to get out walking next but it is getting late......

    Edit: walk done

    Hey you docked me half an hour

    I am Ticking along nicely on track so far this week. Starting work tomorrow so might be harder to fit it in. I am only going to do one day a week at work though, so will still manage 5 half hour slots a week.

    Good on you too - looking like a tiny team but a successful one.

    RawrGirl is so sorry! She was even going to mention something like "make sure I grabbed the lastest one," because she scrolled really fast as she was quite hungry (she likes to workout before she eats breakfast, spent way more time on Minimins than planned, and ended up not working out/eating till after Noon! She was quite shaky at the point and mad at herself for putting it off, as she's NEVER shaky). But anyway...many apologies and from now on she will spend more care looking for the latest log!

    Oh my gosh, RawrGirl is getting sick of her three 2 minute cardio bursts. She wonders if there is any possible way she can maintain goal weight without them...

    Anyway...another session down

    RawrGirl's been doing 30 seconds of skaters, then 30 seconds of jumping jacks, then 30 seconds of butt kicks, then 30 seconds of one of them again or sometimes 180 jumps. She just hates cardio so much, which is why she's been able to stick to this 6 minutes for so long...but now she's even starting to hate that. Lifting weights isn't so bad...RawrGirl's never hated that...but cardio...blek!

    Arms done today and a 10 minute walk

    When I was shredding I had to keep telling myself - it is only 30 seconds - maybe you need a change of activity - plank jacks? Mountain climbers?

    My regime is a bit pedestrian in comparison but better than not doing it. My push ups have benefitted loads from the shred - I did 2 on my toes today and did 8 faster ones in time with the DVD which I couldn't do before.

    What RawrGirl needs is a treadmill. She LOVES doing 30 second 10 mph sprints (like on biggest loser) as they make her feel very powerful. The only problem is, that's a pretty expensive piece of equipment to buy if only using for a few minutes a day. However, there is a an off-ice training video she's been wanting to buy that is hard core aerobic and completely geared to becoming a better skater. So she will probably just get that (hopefully soon) and incorporate that in and phase the Shred cardio out.

    Here's the link if you want to check out a 30 second demo video: Balance Training for Figure Skaters -- A Preview - YouTube
