Stephanie - Have we asked you what type of dog you have? I miss walking with my dog. I used to read while he led me down the road. Everyone thought that was funny to see.
Its been a great start to the month. Here are a couple quotes to keep us going-
Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

I'm a week late but I'd like to jump in if nobody minds! :D If I have to fess up that I missed a workout I'll be sooo much more inclined to do it. Hahah
I use the xbox sports active game as the overall main program and try to do extra things were I think it kind of lacks in order to meet the goals.
March 6th: 40 min. Full body workout, burned estimated 203 cal.
Welcome to the group Ginger. It does help to keep me on track to have to report here. I am loving it. excercise has become a priotity for me.
great quotes Angela. Glad to see you are back on track and going strong!
Way to go Stephanie and Brenna!
My doggie is a 101 lb Chocolate Lab. Her name is Greta. We got her last summer from a lab rescue. She's about 6 or 7 years old. She decided she was my dog last fall. Because she's so big she can handle the long walks. Her fav is when I take her to a local wooded area with paths. When its warmer I will take a 15 ft leash and let her swim in the creek. She and are are both happy that Spring is slowly coming to Indiana.
sounds like a great dog. Sounds like fun walking with her. I agree I am ready for some nice weather to walk outside. It was a nice day up here in NH but working nights by the time I get up it starts getting cool.

Hi Nicole Welcome!
Do you have cable? I get exercise tv on demand and I think I did a Jillian Michaels Kettlebell workout. It was only 25 minutes, but fun.
I am definitely not working hard enough. My husband challenged me on our exercise bike. I did 6.5 miles yesterday- he did 9.3. Today I tried really hard and did 8.4- he did 9.5. He is making me work harder!!! Did you hear that mom- He did the bike two nights in a row- amazing.
I only have basic cable but I should be getting the Jillian kettlebell workout from Amazon tomorrow. I am so excited! I also have her 30 days shred dvd but I haven't tried it yet. I started out with walking (and my legs are killing me) and hope to start incoporating the dvds in this weekend. Both my hubby and I have a ways to go to get back to where we once were but are determined to get there. Although I know if he pushes himself he could be there in a few months easily. After only a few days of dieting and working out I am already feeling much better about myself and the only thing I really miss is my Dr. Pepper!
Welcome, Nicole! :-) Jillian's 30 Day Shred is amazing! In 20 minutes she really packs a punch! I started level 2 for the first time since at least this past summer (I had gotten to level 2 and even attempted level 3 at that time, but then I stagnated in the workout sphere once the summer was over). Level 2 was a killer, and I thought I was in shape after working out consistently since January, lol. Her 6 Week Six-Pack is also very good for a slightly longer workout.
welcome Nicole, I too have kettle bells and didn't like the video that came with it. It was mainly insturctional and not an actual work out. My daughter taped me one from tv that I use. One part I can't do at all but most of it is fun.
Great Job Angela getting Rich on the bike.
Well I did the Jillian Michael kettlebell workout this morning and decided that she is trying to kill me! Wow, crazy workout. I ended up having to switch from my 10lb bell to 3lb handweights halfway through. I probably need another week before I can use the 10lb kettlebell the whole time.
10 pound kettle bell WOW I do only a 5. I have been doing them on and off for several weeks. I agree Jillian is hard. I wish I could find a good kettle bell work out. If you find one let me know!
Ah, to be able to lose weight like a man! My hubby weighed himself last night and has dropped more than twice the amount of weight I have. My father went to his cardiologist yesterday and since the beginning of Febraury has lost 23lbs (has been eating fairly healthy and has only been really trying hard and starting to work-out the last 3 weeks or so)!! So proud of them both but still makes a girl wee bit jealous.
Men lose weights so fast because it is so easy for them to build muscle. When my hubby started lifting weights years ago the fat just melted off. It takes me a month of cardio to lose 1 lb. UGH
just checking to see what this thread is about..........i just started my exercise routine after a few years of being sluggish...
i like the concept of writing it down........
i am using my iphone app of pedometer...........it keeps a daily total and then a weekly total....
but the writing down seems good........i will be able to see it all of the time..........
Welcome. That is exactly what this thead is for- to write it down. Knowing that someone else is seeing what your doing helps to encourage me to get off that couch! Are you walking for exercise? I hope to start walking outside once the snow and ice go away.
