Getting in shape....
« on: March 24, 2011, 07:28:36 pm »
I want to get into better shape! It's really hard though! I have some really good workout dvd's...I just bought the Flirty Girls workout, I like it, but it's hard to stick to a daily routine. Does anyone have any pointers?  ???

Really good thread started here. I'd like to join in, if I can. My wife and I are both heavy, and we want to lose weight. About the only exercise we do is Walking. My wife has been battling her weight for a couple decades, and just recently got excited because she's at 200 lbs. She wants more than ever to hit 199, and finally be out of the 200's for good.

Spring is coming, or should I say it's here now. I bet many of us are anxious to get outside, and move our bodies. Maybe we could start by talking about how far we all walked each day, when we walked, what we saw along the way, etc. If we know we have others participating, maybe that would help.

It's not a competition, because some people can certainly walk farther than others, and others prefer to job, or run, or use exercise equipment. But let's talk about what we did each day, and make this thread like a group diary.

SHARING A TIP: Remember, plates for dinner come in many sizes. Just because it's called a DINNER PLATE, doesn't mean you have to use it. Try using a Coffer Cup Saucer for a salad on the side, rather than a huge plate.

I'd be willing to join in. A pedometer would be a good measure, we could see how many steps per day or week we get. :)

For me I excersise 2-3 three times a day for short periods of time 10-15 minutes very intensely. I find that when I do the that help me stick to it rather then doing 1 45-1 hour. The real key is just keep moving and find something you like. :wave:

I too will join with you.  I am TRYING to motivate myself to do 30 minutes on the elliptial every day.  I'm very down right now and hard to keep motivated when you just want to sit and cry, but I am trying.   :'(

I eat healthy and I walk my dogs.  It's hard for me to exercise intensely because I have fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue....so walking is my choice of exercise.

About the only exercise we do is Walking.

This has really helped my husband and I.  We've been using the walking tracker at Spark People where you click on your walk route and it calculates the miles and calories burned. It's been a lot of fun watching the miles add up, and we've both lose a lot of weight. We have a long way to go, but it's been a lot of fun, especially now that the weather is nice.

I am the same way, and the only thing I find that works for me is finding a work out partner to hold me to it.

getting in shape is also one type of hardwork,and also by doing this we will be more attracted to people.

This is a WONDERFUL idea!!!!!! I'd love to do this. I don't have a partner, but this way I'll feel like I do! Let's do it!!!! :)

        Turn your TV on, select your favorite musical channel and start your own exercise routine. Do old calisthenics...you will get in good shape soon!
