The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

Warp Speed Day 17

Weight 225.6

I am finding it very hard to stay motivated with the exercise. I have been having knee problems which are not getting better. This morning I have a persistent pain in my knee. I am going to have to change the way I do cardio from here on out. It will probably impact my results but I would actually like to be able to walk when this is over! :)

I am going to try to keep up with the weight and circuit portion but I am going to have to switch to a less traditional method of cardio. Although the gazelle is considered low impact it has always bothered my knees if I used it too much. Jump roping is just a joke right now.

I have Mike Mahler's kettlebell e-book and it has a fat loss circuit in it that I will use in place of one or two sessions of cardio. I also can bike and hoop, but NO gazelle, jump roping or running for me for at least a week. I will re access next week.

Now food on the other hand is going great. I really like the diet portion. Low carb seems to set well with me. I really need to invest in a few cookbooks though because I am constantly looking for new foods. I know there is variety out there, I just don't know what it is! LOL

The biggest problem I am having with food is eating enough. I am finding that I am not hungry at all. When I do get hungry I have a few bites of whatever I make and I am good.

Hey there! This is joolie from oxygenmag and I'm doing the same diet. I couldn't do the sprints after the first week. It killed my knees. I started doing all my intense cardio on the step mill. It is low impact but it kicks my butt every time. I just adjust the speed depending on the lenth of the sprint. My heart rate actually gets higher than when sprinting. I'm not sure if you have access to one but you might try it. :)
