Just keep at it whatever you do and you'll eventually see results.

I run probably 4-5 times a week, I now run a couple times a month, and I do CrossFit sessions nearly every day. Granted I'll admit I likely put in more time exercising and working out than most - not intending to make it sound like bragging even though it make look that way - it's just one of my favorite things to do outside of my job and I try to make time for it nearly every day. Everybody's situation is obviously different but hopefully you can make time for it as well.

I'll be running in two marathons next year. There are also a variety of competitions that are more CrossFit related - I did one in the summer locally/regionally here - nothing planned in that regard but people I work out with could tie me into those if I'm needed (i.e. team competitions).

I often wear myself out with so much work and am too stubborn for my own good sometimes not resting as much as I should, but I enjoy it, it's worth it to me.

As for my figure, I'm about 5'7" and 140 lbs.

I am going to continue running and playing pick up hockey!

I've been playing pick up hockey for a long time as a goalie, maybe if Detroit's injuries get bad enough, I could be in the lineup soon!

Getting back into the fighting-shape I had one year ago which means : Less fat, more muscle mass with no weight loss. And reaching the 4th Kyu in Jiu-Jutsu.

Good job, keep it up.

For those who don't know, I've been lifting for over 10 years now and am a huge fan of competitive bodybuilding. Feel free to PM with any questions regarding fitness!

Too much running is VERY bad for your knees, and lifting heavy weights will make you way too bulky.

I like to just casually exercise a couple times a month.

Last week I watched a very good documentary. Everyone should check it out. It's call Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. It's about going on a juice fast for 61 days. I haven't started the fasting but the guy who was on the film weighed in at 305 and lost up to 79 lbs in 61 days just by drinking juice. I started to try some of the stuff he had on the film and it's pretty good!

I saw that, it was horrifying. Juicing isn't for everyone, but if you're gonna die anyway, it's worth a try! I think, like you said, you can take ideas from the documentary and fit it into your own routine.

I am not at the point I need to have my stomach tied off. But with my frame and build I could stand to lose around 20 to 30 lbs. It's just since my Marine Corps days I can't spend as much time as I would like in the gym. I want go get healthier but my job and kids prevent that. I want to make the change and I have. So far I lost up to 5lbs this week and my energy level is very high. Still need to workout more but I have started by hitting the rink more.

I know it can seem difficult, but I'd encourage you to read up on "Fit Mom" Maria Kang.

I just do the best I can. Work out 5-6 days a week.

I am still going to compete again in the http://afmfittest.com/ May 31st. So what if everyone laughs at me? I'll never see any of them again...I am competing with myself. Last year I had two other ladies in my age group. This year, I may be alone.

No. I don't look like Fit Mom. Never did and never will... Fit Mom is not a good representation of women I know, including myself... she's half my age, to begin with. Whatever. I don't let what other people think I SHOULD look like stop me from trying and working hard.

Tip of the day - for those looking to burn maximum body fat, do your cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Your body will use your stored body fat as fuel.

I still go to the gym pretty much every day. It's my happy place and keeps me from murdering my coworkers and clients. ;)

Never posted in here before, but decided to stop with the excuses and get healthier back in late April. Bought a Fitbit and have been committed day-in and day-out since. Down almost 30lbs so far and averaging over 5 miles per day. Upping that over the summer to 7-10mi/day as long as the legs can take it. (So far, so good!)

I had the "I work too much" and "too hard with the kids" excuses for the longest time. Changed that by getting up prior to dawn in the spring and getting in 5 miles before work. If the evening schedule works out, it's 4-5 more miles.
