I agree! MyFitnessPal is great-though if I ate back all the calories they say I'd burned I'd gain weight, but that is not my goal:D

I too would like to be in! I'm shooting to work out 5 days a week for an hour, because my job is fairly sedentary unfortunately. I try to vary; MWF is Cardio, T/TH is strength training for 30 with cardio for 30. My ultimate goal is to be about 145 (I've got 11 more lbs to go from 18 lbs).
I DESPISE running but feel it's an important component; any tips?

I, too, despise running, which is why I train cardio differently. Work in some plyo and calisthenics. I did plyo on opposite days I did strength training for three months, no running, and I improved my run time on my PT test by a couple of minutes (1.5 miles @ 12:20 to 10:20). Of course, it depends on the intensity you use, so your mileage may vary. One thing I'll tell you is that your body will lie to you, telling you that you've had enough, but you know you can keep going. That's what'll help you get past the plateaus you may come up to -- going outside of your comfort zone. On the flip side, don't overdo it and make sure you're not in pain.

I find sprinting in intervals a much more enjoyable experience to running. Plus HIIT cardio is much more effective than steady state.

21-15-9 for time
-Thrusters (75 lbs)
-Pullups

Finished in 15 minutes... Gotta work on conditioning.

On a positive note, finally convinced a co-worker to take action towards his plans to get back into shape. He's been talking about it for a few months, so I'm glad I could motivate him to get to it sooner, rather than later. :cheer:

In the pattern of 2-4-6-8... reps, within a 7 minute time limit each:
