Something is set wrong. I don't know what, but post your msq and let's see what it might be.



LOL! I just saw a Neiman Marcus advertisement banner on Miataturbo! The world really does believe we are into women's' fall fashions! Too funny!

Seriously, it *is* chilly out today, even where I am. I thought it was like 8am looking out the window an hour ago.

I'm hoping it warms up *soon*. Driving a Miata without the top down is sacrilege!

Yeah, I know I need to get my heater working Brainy, no need to rub it in :(.

Anyways, time to GTFO and head back. I've waited more than long enough and it's not getting any warmer.

I have realized I have been eating complete crap the past two weeks,but that will stop immediately.

Besides the past two weeks I have only consumed a strict 1900-2000 calories a day, but I probably have a crap load stored. So I guess I am asking is what is the most reasonable boost in weightloss I can do? What are some good supplements? I have never taken any before, I used to keep a healthy 150-165 lbs. by running, pushups and sit ups, but its not working anymore.

But that's for improving your fitness level. If you just want to lose weight, that's 80% diet changes anyway.
See my thread here.

Cliffs: Eat like Faeflora said and either do Mark's style of exercising or some high intensity interval training. I dropped from 165 to 150 in about 10 weeks by cleaning up my diet and doing Insanity, then adding in some running, biking, and swimming for (mini) triathlon training. Six-pack is back and I'm having all of my size 32 slacks taken in a little.

Mark had even more dramatic results with his routine, but I found the Insanity stuff super convenient for my ~50+ hour/week work schedule.

I thought Insanity was like P90x? I found P90x to be extremely inconvenient -- at least an hour every single day, has to be done in front of the TV or computer, way, way, way too much cardio (even on the days supposedly focusing on muscle groups).

My exercise is very unstructured now. There's a "skeleton" of kettlebell workouts 4 days out of the week -- 2 days with 5 minutes of Turkish Get Ups each, and 2 days with 12 minutes of 2-handed and 1-handed swings. Usually I'll finish those workouts with a minute or two of snatches and goblet squats to push my muscles a bit closer to 85-90% exhaustion (but not to failure -- recovery takes too long).

I mix in other stuff based on energy levels, workload, time, and what I feel like doing. I might add an extra day of kettlebell stuff, working on snatches. I might do bodyweight upper body stuff (pull ups, chin ups, push ups, dips, handstands). I might do 2 or 3 long hill sprints. Lately I've been running one lap of my block as fast as I can -- timed myself this week at 4:32 and then a tired 4:37. My aim is crack 4 minutes by the end of the year.

Then, I add a few games per week -- fall softball just started so I'll have a couple softball games each week. It's not an intense workout, but you get warmed up, sprint a few times, keep the body loose. And then Angleball on Saturdays, which is a field sport similar to say, soccer on a smaller field. Lots of sprinting and cutting, off and on for a couple of hours.

All that to say...any time I've tried to pin myself down to a regimented workout plan, I've quickly gotten bored and quit after a few weeks. Variety is what keeps it interesting for me.

nobody will ever want to download and open a megasquirt map named "current tune" FYI.

rename it something useful like your username and the date and what's relevant. dot msq.

It's regimented in that you are, initially, supposed to do it 6 days/week for 60 days. The DVDs take between 30 - 90 minutes with 45 minutes being the average.

It's way easier for me to get up at 5:30 AM and walk downstairs, move the coffee table and bust out a yoga mat in front of the living room TV than it is to drive to and from the gym. There is zero equipment required for Insanity, so no need to figure out where to stick a pull-up bar or dumb bells. That also means two people (like my wife and I) can do the workouts together at the same time without having to wait on each other for equipment.

Again, I am out of the house for a good 11 to 13 hours per day due to work and I can't exactly take an afternoon break to go sprint around my parking garage in the afternoon.


Now that we completed the first "cycle" of Insanity, we just incorporate the DVDs in to our weekly routines between jogging, biking and swimming. Once the triathlon is over (this weekend), we would like to start picking up and putting down heavy things.
