Quick question: Has anyone experienced bad side effects after using "Medifast Supreme" from GNC? Thanks for any response. Second question of mine... This challenge is open to anyone that wants to join! The goal is 30 days of exercise. Every day post what you've done for your exercise and for how long. On floor exercise days write down how many reps you did along with if youre doing sit-ups or crunches, full push-ups or girl ones, etc. Challenge yourself and see how much progress you make over 30days.

The daily goal is atleast 30 min of CARDIO. This can be a dvd, walking, running, turning up the radio and dancing, wii, anything that gets your blood pumping!.

Floor exercises- If you can't do this many reps, it's ok, do what you can. Challenge yourself!.

Days 1-10= 25 sit-ups/crunches, 10 push-ups(girl style is fine), 20 squats, 30 leg lifts per leg(either while standing or laying on side).

Days 11-20= 35 sit-ups/crunches, 15 push-ups, 30 squats, 40 leg lifts.

Days 21-30= 50 sit-ups/crunches, 20 push-ups, 40 squats, 50 leg lifts.

Daily schedule-.

Wednesday- 30 min cardio.

Thursday- 30 min cardio & floor exercises.

Friday- 30 min cardio.

Saturday- 30 min cardio & floor exercises.

Sunday-45 min cardio challenge- really push yourself and see what you can do!.

Monday- 30 min cardio.

Tuesday- 30 min cardio & floor exercises.

Remember to drink your water! If you havent ever measured yourself it may be a good time to start..

If you have an injury that prevents you from doing any of these try another exercise that you CAN do...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..

I'm in.... thanks. I've a question though, do we have a resting day after continuous 5-6 days or workout? Just a question.... i'm really good at brisk walking on the treadmill but never tried those floor exercises( crunches, leg lifts, etc) so I think this is a good opportunity to try them out....... I also do few mins of random ball exercise, can that be counted too???..

answered Apr 30 at 16:24

There are no rest days. Its 30 straight days of exercise. If you feel like it's too much you can always walk at a slower pace for a day. Its really about getting motivated and pushing yourself. Oh yea, go ahead and count the ball exercises. If you need to do the crunches on a ball thats fine too.

Do you like it?..

The cardio on Sundays will be a challenge too since I do TaeKwonDo with the kids the other 6 days a week, and I like my day off. I guess a nice walk around the neighborhood will do me good. This will also fall while I'm on vacation in April....another good motivation to keep my rear moving while away. Need to break the habit of "on vacation=eat all the time and sit on butt."..

My boys have been taking longer, but my dh, dd, and I started the end of January. I'll be testing for my yellow belt the first week of April. I LOVE it though. I agree with the workout. Family class is always a bit stepped up when this family of black belts show....they were there tonight.....good class, but my thighs hurt!!! The boys just received their green stripes. We are hoping to step it up a gear or two this summer and get to blue stripes before we leave for Germany and have to learn a tad bit differently. We'll see if I'll make it...

I have to tell you, when I saw your post this morning, I was thinking, "oh, that sounds good". But at the same time I was looking at the start date you posted and thinking to myself "PLEASE don't let today be the 24th" (over and over in my head). I clicked on the calendar and there it was...the 24th. Then, I thought about it off and on throughout the day...wondering if I could do it, because of my Fibromyalgia. Finally, at 11:00 p.m. I remembered you and thought to myself..."you can continue to make excuses or you can 'just do it'." So, here I am.

Although I'm so out of shape, I think it could almost count as cardio (ha, ha). Anyway, I will get on track. Color me "IN" and thanks for starting this thread...

I know it's very late in the midnight but I was too busy to report my day-1 inputs.

We had this terrible snowstorm on tuesday dumping in 20" or so , so I shovelled the snow for about an hour or more than that.

I was feeling like I ran a mile on a hot summer day, it burned my butt and kicked it up a notch.

So well thats my exercise for the day 1, thought of getting on that treadmill later but I was too sore all over the body, and oh yeah when I did put it in myplan under log exercise and selected snow shoveling for 1 hour manually it showed as 479 calories burned, woohoo....... i'll take that....hopefully i'll be alright tomorrow to do cardio+floor exercises, just feel awful right now.........

Day 2 -.

Gotta tell ya - my husband and I got home after work/dinner and I was EXHAUSTED. Have been all week - not sleeping well. So I said 'I'm too tired to work out'. Then I decided 'well - I'll just do the floor routine' - and I did - all of it. Then I looked at my husband and said "I feel badly - I've made a comitment - I HAVE to do 30 minutes on the treadmill - will you come work out with me?" Naturally - sweetheart that he is - he did - and he too was dog tired. So I did 30 minutes hard on the treadmill - THEN I did some weight training.

Over acheiver!!!!!.

Thanks ladies - glad I have you all - you are keeping me accountable. I made a comitment and I don't like to break those to myself or anyone else..

Shush, you're not stupid. Girlie push-ups are when you're on your knees instead of your toes. Its kind of a half plank position. Which brings me to another exercise, If youre not good with sit-ups you could go into plank postion(balance on elbows and knees/toes with body straight) for as long as you can hold it. It really helps the core muscles...

I have seen the "walking DVD's", but I wasn't sure if they were to be used with the treadmill. I have two treadmills (coatracks as my ex husband calls them).

Hi everybody:.

The day has gotten away from from me. It's 10:45 p.m. (PST). I did, however, do all the floor exercises and added 20 more side crunches (I don't remember what they are really called...but I want my waist back); added the extra leg lifts (lying on my back) - 25 extra; I did something else "extra", but can't remember what it was. Trust me though...I'm sure it was something good. The bad news (for me)...no "traditional" cardio.

Great job everybody and thanks for the continued support!.

What is today (Monday)? 30 min cardio isn't it? Think I will go for a bike ride since the wind had FINALLY calmed down around here - those 30 MPH winds make it a pain in the butt to try to ride my bike!..
