    Gained 10lbs since New Year!
    😡

    Need you lovely people to keep me on track.

    Ut oh.. :#

    Yep, although I can kind of put it down to the steroids I'm taking for my lupus.
    Non-stop starving

    Im sorry to hear about the Lupus, is that a recent diagnosis?
    Steroids are notorious for weight gain I've heard.

    Yeah - diagnosed in December after a year of agony and misery.

    Hate to hear that. For what it's worth you're not alone. I was diagnosed two years ago, along with rheumatoid arthritis at a point when I was in the best shape of my life. The lupus is in remission now (mostly), and I'm hopeful for some progress with the RA. I can't reliably grip a barbell and the meds have me out of commission two days a week, but it could be worse. Hang in there. Feel free to reach out. Thought I was a unicorn.... haven't run across any other dudes with lupus. Take care man.

    Yeah, not many of us about fella.

    We are all saying hi and being friendly, which is great! However, I'd like to know what everyone is doing for exercise. At home programs? Gym? Running? I'm currently doing Insanity: Max 30. Anyone else doing this or a similar program?

    I have just started quick home workouts (added to my regular Saturday morning karate). The app I have downloaded (FitOn) has a whole bunch of workouts categorized into intensity levels, time, type of workout, area of focus and objective.

    So I can say I have 10 minutes to work on my core and can handle a medium intensity. I feel like dancing today, so let me pick one of these workouts...

    That said, I have a 17 minute pilates basics and a 13 minute tabata workout to do

    Walking, marching in place while watching t.v. or to stand up and move when working from home, even a walking video to do indoors. I've added hand weights to it. I have some dance videos that focus on the abs while getting an aerobic workout. But I am getting winded quickly. So I'm trying to build back my stamina. I used to walk 2 - 4 miles in the mountains when I was younger. I really lost a lot of my stamina and fitness abilities compared to when I was younger.

    I walk every day, I do yoga 2 or 3 times a week, I do HIIT a couple times a week and do some strength training. Not following any specific plan though

    Standard week:
    Sunday - circuit training class, walk of some sort
    Monday- walk 1, run 3 or 4
    Tuesday- run 1, circuit training class
    Wednesday - walk 1, run 3 or 4

    Hi there,
    So initially I was doing Zumba at home but now I'm walking 6 miles a day, 3 miles in the am before work and 3 miles in the evening. I also do a 30 min upper body weights exercise from a fella I follow on YouTube. Workouts like P90X and Insanity are a little too much for right now, but maybe one day... 😊

    Good to know that now that I'm 36, I qualify for "middle age". :grimace:

    I've been here since 2017, though.. and I was definitely not 36 then. :lol:

    So good to have you finally join us! I have been stalking this board for a few years now.

    Hey, you! I see a few people I recognize from Chit-Chat. :heart:
  • PertapertPertapert Member Posts: 17 Member Member Posts: 17 Member
    Working out can be such a challenge on bigger bodies!😳. I only hope that I can push through and get to the coveted other side. Hoping to make a few friends on here to get that much needed support to keep pushing & vise versa 🙏🏾💪🏾. Oh and btw, good morning all 😊

    Oh boy! I tweaked my inner thigh knee area. Trying to stretch it out. My hips are tight, need to work on flexibility. Anyone out there who can relate?
  • csmcozartcsmcozart Member Posts: 34 Member Member Posts: 34 Member
    I am thinking about doing two workouts per day; one in the morning and one in the evening. Anyone have experience with combining a beachbody program with Insanity Max 30?

    If you can, that would probably be good. How much do you currently do? Perhaps increase it gradually at the beginning
