    Nope. Nevermind. The elevator is out of service in my building and I'm not carrying my bike up and down 9 flights of stairs every day to go to the gym. I'm still jogging outdoors until it's fixed.

    Just for reference I started by taking walks outdoors. When the gyms reopened I went every day for about 6 weeks but I found it frustrating because my fitness level was way off from what it was before lockdowns started, and I didn't know what to do. I kept trying new things and making no progress. Also, I think when you're out of the habit of daily exercise it's not a fun habit to get into.

    So I decided to start from scratch. First I just committed to getting some fresh air by walking around outside every morning and listening to audiobooks. Eventually my walking time increased and I was covering 6 miles without effort. This was taking about 1 1/2 hours, so I decided to start jog/walking instead, which eventually became jogging, and now I feel ready to start back in the gym again. I would like to build a firm body with noticeable muscle tone over the next year, and when the weather is nice keep doing my morning walks, but only 30-40 minutes.

    ^^Okay well that was a no-go. Randomly ended up waking up 2 hours later than normal and it had rained, so I couldn't take my dog to the park because it was muddy. Also then ended up with a horrible headache due to using a different perfume so I ended up not working out either.

    I mainly do a combo of weight training and reformers pilates. Plus some calisthenics, gymnastics drills and flexibility training.

    Remember if your only goal is to be skinny, rather than setting performance related goals, you are unlikely to maintain.
    Find something you actually enjoy. By working on your physical body in the right ways, it changes your whole attitude (if you are always in pain/stiff/inflexible, how can you have a positive attitude)

    I see my body as a functional thing which I want to feel good in and move well. I do things which give me maximum gains for time spent. Not hours of cardio, which doesn't give you a great physique and doesn't strengthen your whole body, though I do cycle now and then, plus lots of walking.

    Not a massive fan of yoga as it is taught 97% of the time (very poor understanding of anatomy/cues and too much stretching without strengthening, no 'pull' element, mainly 'push'/not enough posterior chain elements)

    As with anything, not necessarily what you do but the way that you do it. Whatever you enjoy, get your body to be good at it and cross train to improve. Then you will be consistant.

    Being so busy with camming and everything else, I just lost my patience. So I renewed my beachbody subscription and I am starting Insanity again. It was the only program that made me a fit bitch in just 3 weeks. This time I am going to finish the whole 6 weeks program.
    I am starting next week and I can't wait, even tho I am terrified, lol. I haven't done intense hiit for years. Nevermind, I can do this.

    I had nice 4 times a week training, with weights and bands (bands rule!) Akso i love the exercises with body weight, i.e. planks etc. The best ways to train a core for me were breakdance freezes. I love stretching, flexibility training and managed to be able to do all ways of splits. It took about a year but so worthy!
    But lately, 2 weeks already I have no fucking time and it sucks, because workouts help me so much to feel great.
    Argh, it's frustrating, my body addicted to it, and now every time I wake up my back hurts
    I need to somehow manage to stick them in between other errands, damn. The lack of physical activity really feels.
    Also the bad thing that I'm alone in it. My friends are not supportive, though they admit it's good for a body. I don't care about opinions when I want and like something, but I hate it when people have some strainge need to say shitty things. 'oh you do it again? pfft, so stupid.'
    oh fuck off lol. Why people do it - it brings them and me a bad mood. I don't make them work out and never mention it, but they notice, because I become very active and happy after training.
    ok, end rant,sorry

    This is picky but my weight range is still 167-169 .
    Keep in mind I’m tall at 5’8 but still got a few lbs to go.
    I didn’t go down in last 3-4 weeks but also didn’t go up ha.

    My goal from about 2 years ago was 165.

    Really. You can be on your phone to make the time fly.
    I talk to customers at my day job via email and text also when I'm on the bike as the back and forth communication annoys me less when I'm doubling it up with getting a work out.

    I did a work out today in gym. Saw busy in the mirror ugh. I did not go in the cycle room there was some hardcore people in there and I was hungry. I'm so unfit but I really like the stuff they have here so I'm confident I can get in shape.

    I have a Cardioglide that I bought many years ago. It was sitting around collecting dust, but I recently started to use it again. I'll go on it while I'm watching TV. I like it because I can exercise my arms and legs at the same time. Unfortunately they don't make them anymore, but this is very similar:

    The fitness center at my apt. complex has treadmills, so I've been using those too.

    So I went to the gym today and tried the cycle room. They have a tv with lots of different workout. I tried to do a cycle one it was hard lol. The seat hurt my ass too. I did a bit of some cardio workout. I also did treadmill. I'm going to slowly build up. They have yoga and Pilates videos I want to do. I also walked the long way to gym all around my apartment as it is a beautiful day.
