    Just started to excercise to UFC : Trainer for kinect. The trainers are nothing but slave drivers...but good excercises though. I do recommend it if you have kinect with xbox. I'm going to do a little bit tonight again in spite of coming down with another headcold. Gotta shed those nine years of packing slight baby fat.
    My ulimate goal for next year.....flat stomach with six pack abs. (Shed weight...gain muscle)

    How are all you guys doing???

    Hoofprints: Oh he is! :) Can't wait to ride him again. So finally today I can walk again without too much pain. And I can do stairs like a normal person.

    I felt 'bigger' and self conscious yesterday but then my friend said I looked like I lost weight?! So who knows.

    Strawberry;
    I only have the dance games for the kinect. Those are a lot of fun. I was also going to get that star wars one.

    Go for it! :) Of course you can join.

    There are some great exercise books out there, like "New Rules of Lifting for Women" though you may need to get creative with some of the exercises that require weights if you do not have access to them. You can also make your own weights for fairly cheap. There are sandbags you can make (get dufflebag with handles, get large ziplock bags and kitty litter... iff the ziplock bags and make them whatever weight you want, then put them in the dufflebag.) And for a barbell, you can make two and stick them on each end of a broom stick.

    There are also a lot of bodyweight exercises where you use your own bodyweight to weight train. For instance there are pushups, chin-ups, planks, jumping jacks, burpees, etc.

    If you are going to be doing walking/running you should look into HIIT (High Intensisty Interval Training). From my experience (and others I have read about) it gives better results and you don't have to work out as long.

    Reached my first goal. Size 16 jeans now fit. Won't repeat my diet advice--read here, post #24:
    Gained a lot of weight recently and feeling awful
    I have been doing some of those big and athletic jobs around the property. Just finished tilling and replanting my south pasture last week. One day took me 4 hours, with a gas-powered tiller, and a rake, but no tractor. My appetite was next to zero that day, and I skipped lunch. SOMETIMES you can do that, but I can only do it when I've had a real big workout.
    I still have some size 14 jeans in my closet. I'll let you know when I'm wearing them. =D

    Okay, so I really haven't had anything to report. I went out of town shortly after posting my stats and to be honest, I ate like crap and just laid around. I'm back to it now...got myself a cleanse to kickstart my eating healty, it's about the only way I can force myself to get into the habit of eating right after being off for so long. I've also texted my kettlebell instructor and told her that I would be starting back today so I'm accountable for that, too. I'll probably have a miserable weekend but the trade off will be worth it!
