    All Autumn I wanted to figure out how to add in 1 more day of cardio per week (for sleep regulation....so, don't kill me that it isn't "more WEIGHTS"...), and Monday has an after work class time that I committed to. I MADE IT ONCE ALL AUTUMN. No bueno. So, I made a wager with 2 gf's at the gym and NOW I am being held ACCOUNTABLE for showing up to this class! TONIGHT IS DAY 1. BOOM!

    I hope you guys don't mind me commenting here since I'm slightly (but not much) younger. I find the older I get the harder it is to take physique to the next level and even maintain. Here is my current workout routine: https://fifteenminutestoflawless.com/2017/12/09/my-workout-routine/.
    Would love any suggestions you guys may have, especially around toning my midsection!

    First day back at work after Christmas, so walking there and back (a bit over an hour in total) is the most exercise I've done in daaaaays. I'm exhausted. That really isn't good. Takes so long to build up and goes so quickly. I will do better!

    Knowing that I no longer have the chemistry to maintain muscle that I had when I was younger keeps me motivated to workout! It's amazing how fast we can lose our fitness after 40 if we don't stay active!

    Hi All, I am 41, 5'3 and currently 70kg. I would like to get down to 58/60 this year and then focus on getting strong and defined. Looking forward to support from here. Good luck to everyone with your goals.

    I know I'm still 2 months (and 8 days) from officially being able to play in this sandbox, but I LOVE this group!! 2017 saw me pretty much reach my maintenance weight and start exercising regularly 6 days a week. 2018 will be the year of strength and flexibility - I adore running but really need to make sure I'm covering all my bases. All the lifters on here give me models to look up to :smiley:

    Lifting done. Muscles are swollen with water, so scale is blech.

Tonight, per Coach’s orders, pretty much sitting on my ___ (*kitten*). Made a nice dinner of ooh guess what ground turkey and vegetables. Happy Humpday tomorrow cool ones!

    @Beeps2011 - Done!

    So, have been snowshoeing everyday this week and it feels wonderful. Monday night was a tough hike, and last night was a leisurely one. Not sure how tonight will go. Guess it depends on who shows up to hike.
    Food and water intake has been good. 1.4 more pounds to lose of holiday weight (I gained 6!) :o
    And then 10 more after that. :)

    I've discovered step aerobics! Finally, a workout (other than running) that really leaves me sweaty, tired, and feeling like I did something. Anybody else here share my enthusiasm?
