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 :)

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

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