Hi! My name is Veronica and I'm setting up this group for anyone and everyone who wants to commit to their health. This is not about a New Year's resolution, but more about setting goals for this year and any year after this, knowing that consistency is the one thing that will make a difference. It doesn't matter what program you're doing, just join me and others as we continue to move forward and reaching our goals.

I have a question? Whats better. example, plyometrics today, completed 30 minutes of routine hard core no coasting,, legs shot, form faultering, but great workout. called it quits. Or would it have been better to pace myself, take breaks, modify just so I could complete it? Everything Ive done in sports and life, I always give 100% instead of pacing myself. So I guess the question is, in reguards to this program, is it best to go 100% and stop when your bodies faultering,( no I dont mean just feeling tired)(rather leg pumped and shakey or arms cant lift another rep etc.) or pace and take breaks,just you can say you did it? of coarse next plyo day 30 minutes is not my goal but all out until faultering,will set new bench mark. I would love to hear your thoughts,

Keith ps. cant find spell check, please forgive, not my strong suitemoticon

Hey Keith, I just now read this message. I know what you mean.. i've always been the same way. From personal experience when doing something like plyo, it's best to pace yourself; of course give it your best but take rests when you need it. Your body will get stronger little by little and you'll notice the next time you do it, you'll feel even stronger and will be able to get farther. I hope that makes sense. Listen to your body, if you feel nauseous or dizzy then you're overdoing it. I think that the way you did it is fine as long as you don't feel sick, does that make sense?

In regards to lifting weights, it's best to lift till failure like Tony says.

Something to remember, it takes time and consistency to get results emoticon

I remember when I first started with my journey at one point I was getting extremely frustrated because I wasn't getting the results I wanted FAST... I conveniently forgot that it took me a few years to gain the weight and then I wanted fast results. I have to say however, that there is a sense of pride that comes with the consistency of exercise, clean eating and reaching your goals. I look back and think "YEP! I did that!" Stick with it, and stick with me here in the thread... you'll get there too! I have recipes and tips that I will be posting here so feel free to try them. If you haven't received a copy of my recipe book let me know and I'll be happy to send you a copy, my free gift to you to help you achieve your goals. I will be publishing my second recipe book in the next month or so and will send you a copy of that one as well.

Keith you've done better than me. Yoga X is the most difficult yoga routine I've ever attempted.

Yay Layla! Welcome emoticon

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend and a very merry Christmas. I'm excited about our group and continuing this journey together.

I am starting back on the 30th. This month has really been hard for me. It's cold and I just really want to curl up with a book and read lol. Gotta get back. No time to stop. Got another 30 pounds to lose this year. Or 2 more pants sizes lol. I am still eating really clean. I even skipped Christmas dinner. I really surprised myself. I worked so hard at P90X and the momentary gratification was not worth the exercise I'd have to do to lose all that I would have put on. emoticon

Keith and Layla, you both are doing GREAT! I'm so sorry I've been a bit absent these last few days... I am starting up my workout today. Angelina (my 5 year old) is home for 3 weeks on vacation from school which represents a new challenge for me. She only wants to do Kenpo X and will not do any other workout, not even Tony and the Kids LOL. She's too funny. I have a video of her talking about P90X, Shakeology and how great they are for you and she talks about how too much sugar is bad for you.

First time completing 100% of plyo, even with a bad knee. Felt like a great accomplishment, looking forward to many many more mile stones on this journey. emoticon

I'm SO proud of you!! Awesome job! You'll surprise yourself with your results this time around I promise.

I worked out yesterday and plan to workout today again. It's a challenge with my 5 year old at home but I bartered with her and it worked. She did Kenpo X after I was done emoticon

Just finished arms, shoulders and part of abb ripper x, man yoga tomorrow is going to be rough and good at the same time-emoticon
I would think your daughter would be crazy about plyo, it's a killer, but would be fun if I was still a kid, at least in body, lol. However, I have to say these work outs are age reversing. I truly believe the stronger and fitter you become, the younger you feel and act.emoticon
