    I'm with you DisneyDreamer13, I am proud when I finish my workout. Exercising is still a relatively new thing for me. As I mentioned in a post earlier, I will be celebrating my one year kettlebell anniversary in May. Before that, I never worked out and relied on diets to maintain my weight.

    I am usually pretty good and just make exercising part of my daily routine, I don't even think about it, I just do it. Because of some recent life changing events, I fell off the wagon but I am definitely getting back on. The KB is too good to me to just let it gather dust. I can eat pretty much whatever I want (within reason) and I am still losing weight, can't beat that. (Oh, and as nice side effects, I have nice muscles now, a smaller waist, a slimmer tummy and a tighter butt). Have I mentioned how much I love my KBs lately?

    That's the spirit, guys. It always sort of slays me when I hear folks honestly inquire "when can I stop?" Personally, that's along the lines of asking "when I can I stop brushing my teeth?"

    Should exercise be a "priority?" Not necessarily. It's never a priority for me to brush my teeth, but I do. It's never a priority for me to tell the people I care for that I love them, but I do it. Nor is it ever one for me to eat, but it's nice to get around to at some point. You follow?

    Bri, I don't have much else in the way of creative things for sprint workouts that I haven't already passed along, but if you're game and you're bored enough, try this one out--jog the distance to the next street light or telephone pole, then sprint all-out to the next one. You might get some funny looks from your fellow pedestrians, but it's a real simple one, and goes a long way in training the system to go from trot to full-tilt boogie without a lot of windup. If you find the space between two isn't enough runway, feel free to make it two lengths, or more.

    Okay, I've just had my fill of motivation for the day. I was foolish enough to open an e-mail forwarded along, with the subject line "The 2007 Krispy-Kreme (tm) Lingerie Calendar."

    Let's just say there are some things in life you can't un-see..........

    Aww thanks DisneyDreamer13. Being young also helps lol. I have always been very passionate about working out(I know, I am weird), so it comes to me naturally..I guess!

    I also am an athlete so training every day is nothing new to me. When I was in middle school I trained also, but now I have to say it is getting pretty hard-core. However, I enjoy the challenge, and it isnt a challenge to me anymore because I am in shape. I am now getting ready to train in between seasons, which happens to be only two weeks. I am going to end up pushing myself(not too hard promise!) So I can get extra ready.

    DisneyDreamer13, right when you get into training and do it everyday, it is a continous cycle that you adapt to!

    Thanks, I will try that one out. It is just in this point of my season, I feel like I am in great shape..I am trying to think of how long I should do that. I may do some ladders..and then do 45 minutes of that..I am going to have to make the distance longer in between because the run would be to slow for me...
    Thanks for making one up for me! Oh and by the way, good luck with the Krispy Kreme (tm) lol lingerie visions...ewww~

    Okay I'm hearing so much about the Kettleballs that eventually you may cause me to buy one... if someone can convince me. Like before and after pictures? LOL.

    Anyway, I did 4 miles on the eliptical & tredmill. According to the lil computer thingys I burned about 500 calories so I'm happy with myself today.

    Kettleballs you say? lol

    I could show you before and after pics, not sure I want to post them here though! I was just tugging on the waist of my pants a few minutes ago and thinking I could probably fit in the next size down now, how is that for results!

    That is very impressive. The only thing with me is that they seem so expensive. Therefore, if I buy them and don't use them I just wasted that much money...

    If you don't use them, they make excellent toe stubbing objects! LOL

    I have moved mine several times around the room but not really exercised with them. I plan on it at some point to get back on the wagon.

    If you have your mind set on improving your shape and losing weight, I bet you that once you try it and start seeing results you'll fall in love with it. You only need one kb really. The best part for me is that it's quick. I can be done in 15 minutes if I want to. Another bonus is that it doesn't take up much space like a treadmill or other contraption would and it travels well.

    Ok, enough of that. Today I just ran a mile and then ran 6 600m.
    Oh and Sorry Jake, but I lifted afterward..I told my coach and he said he will try to remember..I hate when he says try because then he forgets..

    Yes they are heavy, if they weren't they'd be useless! I started with one weighing 18 pounds (8kg) and now it's too light for me to swing and snatch so I use it for presses. I moved up to a 26 pound one (12kg) and it's challenging and quite the workout still. I never thought I'd be able to do it, press 18 pounds over my head? Thought I'd knock myself out for sure.
