I've thought about working up to that point! Not sure I'm going to though. I live in the boonies, and the nearest store is 2 miles away, and their selection is crap. The next store is 5 miles past the first one. The nearest grocery store is over 30 miles away. But a girl can dream can't she! Lmao!!!!!

I would bike, but really suck at biking in the snow. And can't work out if I break myself I walk to class but otherwise everywhere else I go is too far.

I've been doing okay the past couple days, but had a good kick myself moment this weekend. I have to go get the bridesmaid dress this week. For August. I still have 4 months! I could have lost all this before hand, but no, I slack off till now.

So here's hoping the dress is easily adjustable. The style doesn't really allow much lee-way.

But I have a question for everyone, just out of curiosity, what do you do for cardio? Specifically indoors?

Insanity (well I did this when not pregnant anyways) and I like my Jillian kickboxing dvds. If you have a gaming console the dance games can be fun.

Hey Im Addie from Denton, Texas. I am 17, 5'10" and precisely 155lbs. My only current work out is riding, sure it keeps me "slim" but I want to be fit and toned. Haha my diet is horrible and the only reason I believe im still even "thin" is because of metabolism. As soon as that goes though im not sure ill keep what I have. Anyone know of a good diet that is good for picky eaters? I am allergic to a lot of things and like even less variety than an ant eater. Haha I don't have time to access a gym due to constant riding and school, and I can't run distance because of an old sprint injury in my achilles... Anyone help me with my diet or exercise?

I'd say you don't need to lose a pound!! I'm no work out expert but try doing the traditional push ups, squats, lunges, etc. I'm a big fan of not "needed" a whole lot of stuff to "work out". When at work I do lunges when I walk around, a few push ups off my desk or I grab a stack of charts and do bicep curls or lift them above my head.

What does your typical diet consist of?

I didn't mean to undermine you, I guess the grass is always greener on the other side, .
