I love Jazzercise. It's still really hard for me to get through the whole hour but I do it! I agree juice nut that tracker is a good thing. I can't do the preset 6000 a day but I'm usually able to get over 4000

I am not ashamed of the gospel.....Romans 1:16

Growing up in small town in Michigan, there were ice rinks in everyone's backyard and a community rink. We got so much fresh air and didn't mind being out in below zero weather cuz we were sweating from skating so much. emoticon Great fun!!!! Thanks for the memories.

Memories are as valuable as medals and I think it is great that you remember everything so well. The 'Bunny Hop' is also the first jump my daughter learned at ice skating lessons. It is a cute one!

I hope you can find a way to get back on those skates and to get some great exercise, and lots of fun.

You know, when I was younger, we used to have a roller rink in our small town. I was in my early teens and they called me a Rink rat. I went to lessons, competed in waltz and formations. I really wanted to get into free style dance but those lessons were more expensive. But I listened while other kids were being trained and I followed suit. I could spin in one spot without traveling and it wore a groove in one of my wheels. It was so cute because the first jump I learned was the bunny hop. hahahaha Those were the days.

I went through a particularly deep, dark depression and in my despair and anguish threw away all the medals and patches I had won. I look back now and wish I had saved them but I didn't know I would get this far in life. But I still have the memories and I take my grandson skating every once in while.

That's too bad, Reggie, but maybe you could try inline-roller-skating? Or wait for winter to bring snow and ice, depending on where you live. emoticon

Shorter days are sometimes a challenge when we have to change our routines, but thanks to SP they're constanting working on new , fun and challenging workouts that don't involve the gym or even any special equipment. I'm finding more and more fun challenges in the videos. I do keep the drapes and blinds open more in the winter, not only to let the sun in , but to connect with the outside whenever I can.

I got up about 6 this morning and I could hear the gentle wind blowing through the trees in our backyard. The doors and windows are open letting the cool air flow through our house. Ahhhhh if it weren't so dark, I would take a walk. But I'll wait a little until the sun comes up. Hope everyone is having a Sparkamundo Sunday.

True, walking in either snow, rain, cold wind is no fun!! Coach Nicole has a ton of neat videos! Some are quick, some are longer. Some are easy, some are hard. You'll have fun!

I look forward to my walks and don't get bored with them. However, I do not like going out in cold weather, so I will be challenged to get my exercise in as the weather turns cold. At that time I look forward to trying out some Spark People exercise videos.

This far, walking videos have kept my interest. I do the one, two, and three mile videos, alternating between them based on time and energy level. But they do keep me interested, and I have walked every day for two weeks (other than scheduled day off on Sundays). Hubby and I are talking about going for leisurely walks Sunday afternoons, too, for a change of pace and scenery.

I enjoy my evening walks with my dogs and my husband, even in bad weather, and they have to walk everyday, so getting at least 10 minutes a day isn't an issue anymore! I try to challenge myself to get at least two or three 30 minute walks in each week. It's been working on the scale, and it's been helping with my mobility.

Week 3 was a challenge. Missed 2 days of workouts; days were just too long and I didn't wake up on time. Aside from that, I think the week went okay. I continue to track in my calorie king tracker (which SP had a little book ... hint hint), then sometimes transfer the info the sp to give me the nutritional info. Sat, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were 30 min workout. Yesterday finally got my glow getter award.

I have discovered that I really enjoy biking, and have pretty much stopped using the car, but for weekly grocery shopping.
I bike every day, and it adds up to 30-120 minutes, depending on how many activities the kids have that day!

I have been doing this challenge but have not posted yet.

This week' s progress:


1. Try a SparkPeople workout video.

2. Find something fun to do!
Have a friend who is moving and have been helping her pack. So fun to be around her - she has such a delightful, positive attitude.

3. Share your progress.
So here i am - sharing my week. And looking forward to Week 4.

Keeping up with this challenge has really helped me. It's easy to put off 30 minutes or hour long workouts, but there's really no excuse when you're just aiming for 10 minutes. This mind shift has actually helped me reach larger exercise goals as well. I just do 5 or 10 minute intervals through out the day and find it's a lot easier sneaking in exercise this way.

I've varied my walking routine this week by choosing different routes and by having my husband walk with me one day. We'll be doing that a lot more often since he's retiring in a few weeks. I also did one of Coach Nicole's strength training videos and that was a nice change. I feel like I'm finally getting into a habit of doing at least a little bit of exercise every day, and when I focus on that, it also helps to be a reminder to eat right. This challenge is helping me to change my mindset to a healthier, more positive one.

Today ends my week three here and during this time I signed up for and began training for a 5K run.
I completed week one of that and start week 2 on Tuesday. I am able to walk 3 minutes then run for 2 minutes now when I am out training and can do this for 30 minutes. Maybe I can do it for longer however I am following the training program to the letter.

Now onto my last week of this program and I am so happy that I have found more activities to keep me going on my healthy journey.
I have BLOGGED every day about my fitness, goals or successes

I have also incorporated doing Spark People videos at times for a good workout when I am indoors.

Hi there everyone. I am just starting week 3 today and will be using some of the fitness videos that Spark People offer as well as my usual power walking and cycling.
Hoping to incorporate some new strength training moves into my daily routine.

Everything seems to be falling into place and I'm feeling pumped to do more each day.. emoticon

I have finished week 3 and have made a few discoveries:

I can do 10+ minutes a day

I actually look forward to the weekend and my days off because I really like my early morning emoticon I didn't think I'd ever say that!

I also enjoy riding my stationary bike. I usually do that in the evening while watching TV

I love this challenge!

During week 4, I will add resistance or strength training.

Great job so far everyone!

Week 3 is complete! I added some variety by helping my nephew more to the 3rd floor of his college dorm, weed eating, and playing soccer with my grandson. It was a great week. Week 4 here I come!
