    New to MFP, maybe a month or so and brand new here. Trying to drop my last 15lbs slowly and increasing my cardio. Currently training for a 70.3. My 5 year old wants to do TRI's with me so I need to get down to race weight and stay healthy so he will follow suit!

    Welcome to the group. 70.3 is a great distance. Which one are you doing?

    Hi everyone!!! How is it going? Worked on my guns today. I feel low energy though. Have a great Thursday!

    Nope it's bow season. Dailing in the scope on the crossbow and scouting the woids.

    Gun season is November.


    Yeah I know what you meant.

    Sooooooooo tired. Told myself I need only go to the gym for 20 minutes. Do 1 set.

    Instead, I stayed for 70 minutes, completed leg/abs/shoulders day - 4 sets of the first in each series and then 3 sets for the remainder. Good stretch.

    BOOM!

    Oh, and I have only had 2 days of HRT, but have lost 1 LB. This may sound RIDICULOUS...but, I have been weighing, measuring, and logging my food since Aug. 24th. And, today, FINALLY, I lost ONE POUND.

    I don't care if my HRT has some voo-doo placebo effect....just move the bodyfat OFF ME, for f-sakes!!!!

    BOOM!

    Don't stop now. Just keep on going.

    I turn 46 this year;) I was lifting for the last couple of years, and now I am doing mostly boxing, calisthenics and running to lose a few and see if I can get a six pack!

    You are doing so great with your programs. It gives me incentive to keep going. I'm just getting back to lifting after a long 7 months off due to an injury. I have been able to increase my weights to what I was doing before. So now I am focused on the improvements.

    Checked the website. Between the 2 loop swim that includes water re-entry and the run that goes through the zoo, it looks like a fun course!

    I'm suffering from withdrawal pains now that my tri season is over. Wonder if I could talk my wife into a weekend trip to Miami in November? ;)

    So my kids (especially the eldest) are interested in working out with me. I tend to either lift heavy or do kettlebells, neither of which seems appropriate for a kid (7, 10 and 12). Has anyone in the group started introducing kids to weight training? I understand body weight exercises or high rep low weight with emphasis on form are best until growing plates fuse (16-18 yrs old) but I also know the kids will want to do what I am doing.

    Any ideas for programs that kids and adults can do that are appropriate for both? Any success stories to share?

    Forgot my sneakers when I packed for teaching this morning - teaching aqua fitness on a slippery deck is pretty dangerous. :#
