You could try the Whole 30 and see what you think - but really it's mostly going to be about your calories and macros. Maybe change up your macros? Go more protein, less carb and see where that takes you?

(Did I break a paleo rule by not flat out recommending paleo? Probably. Excuse me while I eat some peanut butter on a spoon...)

So I went to the gym to attend what I THOUGHT was RIPPED. Turns out it was not RIPPED but BodyCombat. It's been a loooooong time since I did BodyCombat, like when I was still working at the station long time ago. I wasn't very good at it because I didn't know a lot of the movies and the entire class is done facing a mirror so I had to stare at how stupid I looked the entire time. I knew if I wanted to do the class I'd have to go every week so I could learn the moves, and the normal class time was a typical run day, so I haven't gone since.

Well, I still don't know ALL the moves, but I figured this release out a lot more than the one from before (it helps that they're only two weeks in so everybody is still figuring it out.) And you know what? When you have swoll shoulders, you look **** fine punching at the mirror.

I like it.

Stuck it out! Today is day 14 actually a lot easier once you get past the first 10 days or so!!!

I've lost 3lb, but toned up, and lost inches off everywhere whopping 1.5 inch off my stomach! Boom!

Going to continue to try and make healthy choices and see if I can't tone more and get fitter still!

Sometimes I get cranky at my friend who won't train but wants to run with us ..yesterday was hard on my feet because I broke the cardinal rule& wore brand new gear on race day. Worst part? It was new runners. Can you say OUCH? It was only supposed to be a 10k but we ended up running back to finish with our slower friend and my knee& top of my right foot paid the price. Caved and bought into the KT tape hype ..it actually worked. I only taped my knee but the top of my foot is aching& I'm debating taping that as well. Anyone here use it?

Tonight my gym had a "teaser" class where, instead of teaching the normal class, they did short versions of classes in a group of four. I decided to attend the class that was TurboKick, Body Combat, Insanity, and Body Step. So 10-15 minutes per "class."

First part of Insanity:
"Okay... so I don't like Insanity. This sucks."

Last part of Insanity... side burpees.
"I LOVE INSANITY! THIS IS SO FUN!"

I feel awful. I went to the gym nearly every day in August, beginning of September. But when we got back from vacation, I was so bummed. I got really down about coming back to Fl, it was still so ungodly hot out, and I hadn't seen ANY results from working out all that time. Yeah its all well and good that I worked out and felt better but feeling better does nothing to the numbers on the scale when your doctor is telling you that you need to lose weight.

I lost motivation. Now, we are ring shopping and I know that means a white dress and getting all fancy at some point in the near future. But I don't know how to get back into it. I really loved Zumba but I don't think it was really doing anything for me.

A couple of years ago in my early 20's (holy crap. TEN years ago!!! ) I lost almost the same amount of weight I want to lose now on the elliptical. Is it ok to use one machine to lose weight?

I also want to tone my arms. Allllllll the dresses I see online have no sleeves. I'm so.embarrassed of my arms. What can I do to tone them that does not include push ups? (If there is a modified push up that doesnt put strain on my wrists, I'd love to hear it!)

There is definitely nothing wrong with just using one machine to lose weight - I was just reading an article the other day about how the elliptical isn't super efficient though. That said, I like using it and I certainly used it to burn calories when I was younger too (ughhhh let's not talk about how many years ago...) I'm trying to sell mine right now if only because I need some extra cash, and my marathon cross-training now is done on a bike instead of the elliptical.
Do what you enjoy and will keep up with. It's only wrong if you're hurting yourself.

As far as the arms go, I think shoulders and biceps are super-duper sexy so absolutely you can do things to build muscle and definition there. Don't freak out when I say build muscle, I don't mean you're going to hulk out (you probably can't unless you're eating a caloric surplus and probably taking steroids) - but "toning" means "build muscle." Just "build muscle" scares some women because they picture a body builder.

I think I had a post on here about shoulder exercises, I'll go digging and find it again!
