    I was doing boxing a couple of months ago and I actually found that really fun and I lost weight pretty quick. The only reason why I stopped is because im getting married soon and my arms were starting to look like a guy. I was gaining to much muscle and it freaked me out a bit...so now im just biking and walking/jogging. But the Alberta weather sure isnt helping right now! I hate it when it snows in April!!

    LOL! I used to play the tennis game when I had the Wii - I would end up with stiff arms, shoulders and a neck.

    I'd love to get the Wii Fit - but then, why bother? I can just go outside and go for a walk with my dogs.

    Lol

    BUT! I still end up sitting on the couch playing World At War with my friends on XBOX live - we have a clan and up to 30 people in it - so we have too much fun everynight.

    I try to do sit up's during matches. OH! I just got an idea, I can bring up my Bally Ball and sit on that instead of the couch...that'll help.

    I do pole dancing... lol... Holy crap it's such a good workout. I can hardly move the day after my class, lol!

    I also TRY to walk my puppy. But he is small enough that he doesn't really need it... I abhor running. Bleh. I joined a gym for about 3 months. Then the novelty wore off.

    I really need to do more, lol!

    Yard work :P raking horse poop, shovelling horse poop, grooming, lifting saddles etc hehe

    I also do a bit of yoga and walking, and depending on my mood I might do a little routine of sit ups, lunges etc

    Working on your core strength, legs and arms can make a lot of difference in the way you ride :)

    Pretty sure weight lifting doesn't compare unless you're bodybuilding, and even then it is iffy.
