How are you all doing?  I have been doing different workouts each day.  On Wednesday, I felt my stomach churning and so I did upper arm exercises and yoga rather than the walking workout.  Right after I had to RUN to the bathroom, but I just went twice and that's it!  That's the best I have done in months.  I was able to do the walking workout yesterday.  I want to aim for a workout in the am and yoga in the pm but I haven't gotten to doing the pm one yet (curse that American Idol! lol).  I have cut down a little on my eating, I was over-eating. How are you all doing?  Have you been able to stick with it so far?  You can do it!

Let's see....I ran 3.5 miles yesterday and did a turbo kickboxing class at the gym this morning.

I think it is great you are getting on a workout program and encouraging others to do the same! I really do think it helps us not only physically but mentally as well!

Um...I didn't do very well. Didn't exercise at all. Oops...your post is helping motivate me to do something when I get off of work tonight though! Sounds like everyone else is doing great. I can't decide if I want to join a gym or maybe buy a treadmill or something. I wish I could work out outside, but it's far too cold. Maybe I'll pop in one of my exercise videos when I get home.
