Today it  hit 17degrees. it became un fun to run out side. I do not have a treadmill.


I just picked up a nordic track.. Wondering how long a day i would have to use it to feel anything.. i usualy run atleast 3.1 miles a day.. and i love how i feel. But with it being just to cold right now. i have been walking home. and doing some ab work on my ball. but i need to do more.. in less i just need to start eating less. this week i feel i haven't lost anything.. I have 2 pounds to go.. and the hard part i am noticing is eating the right foods.. so i loose the weight..


Any ideas all please

Personally, I'd run anyway.  it was 24 for my run the other day, it's 27 now, and I'm heading out shortly.  I have a post here about running in the cold, which might give you some ideas.

Give the Nordic Track a go, and see how it goes.  Do you have any DVDs you could do at home to get your heart rate up?

Brrrr!  That is cold, and I wouldn't want to run outside either.  sad  The Nordic Track use to be a great workout, but I haven't heard about them for a long time.  I think you'll do just fine with it.  Even if it's not as brutal as your runs, you'll still be getting some form of activity in which is better than doing nothing.  You could always pick up a kettlebell or some dumbbells at Walmart or the sporting goods store.  Bob Harper has some awesome DVDs for an economical price on Amazon that would get you to started on some resistance training.  That will definitely help you bust through body fat.  wink

I hate cold.  I'm trying to do more home workouts for now and also trying to get to the gym at least 1-2 days for my running.

The only thing about running in the cold.. is it is at 7 am . I can't run any other time inless it is on the weekends. I am in Wisconsin. so yeah.. it was like 17 degrees out this mornin.. Monday it is supposed to be 9 .. :(

I can't handle running in the cold. When my fingers and toes are numb when I get home, it's no long fun. I joined a gym. I figured it was worth it just for the few months of deep freeze.

Yeah... I live in GA, so there is no way I would run in 17F.. lol... not this old girl! I loathe the cold. 40 is pushing it for this southern girl for a run even though I have plenty of cold weather running gear. 

I would do like Abby suggested and give the Nordic Track a go and if necessary invest in some DVDs, kettlebells, or weights.
