    You look amazing....the 20 days have toned your body so much, the arms for sure the difference. Do share your routine too...I'm sure alot of us can use some tips!!!

    I have been in the gym 6 days a week. I really like going. I work from home and have my preschooler with me all the time so it gives him a chance to play with other kids and gives me a chance to regain some baby free sanity. It looks like this every week:

    Cardio: 25min Elliptical
    Weights: Arms/Back/ Abs
    Cardio: 25 Treadmill

    Cardio: 25min Stairclimber
    Weights: Legs/ Rear / Abs
    Cardio: 25 Treadmill

    Cardio: 45 Treadmill

    Cardio: 25min Elliptical
    Weights: Arms/Back/ Abs
    Cardio: 25 Treadmill

    Cardio: 25min Elliptical
    Weights: Arms/Back/ Abs
    Cardio: 25 Treadmill

    Swimming 20 laps and lots of time hanging out in the steam room and sauna with the old people. I am kinda chatty so I love all the friendly old ladies that come in for aqua aerobics

    Nothing (unless you count baby gate hurtles and yard work)

    Cardio is always as fast as I can take it with as much resistance as I can take and I am always building my tolerance in both.

    Weights are done on the machines since I am uncoordinated and nearly fell over when someone tried to "help" me do lunges with weights. I started with very little weight and got the motion down but I up my weights every few work outs based on how it feels. If I can get to the last rep in the first set without wondering if I will make it then it is time to up the weight.

    I know the abs everyday thing looks a bit funny but when I am on the machines or doing cardio I am making sure my arms, legs and rear are getting a daily working so a daily working for the abs seems to make sense.

    Other than that I am taking Arginine every morning prior to workout and that did help with the jelly arms feeling and I take about 20 grams of protein after workout in the form of half of a New Whey shot and some well salted popcorn to curb the post workout munchies and serious salt cravings all that cardio gives me. Oh and of course I take a multivitamin.

    More than anything else though I love my gym's daycare. They paint and color everyday and have a bouncy castle on Tues and Thur. Every morning the first thing the little one says is "Now we go Fitness Works". I have a much harder time making excuses to not go when he standing there saying "please please please".
