I am a 37 year old mother of one beautiful daughter. She is the best personal trainer I could possibly have. I also have a very supportive husband. He thinks I am perfect the way I am, but supports me because I believe I need to lose weight. I put on the weight after having my baby. I don't believe in making excuses. What is done is done, the weight must come off. I am a very positive person and can be very encouraging to others but extremely hard on myself. I get frustrated easily, but having someplace to talk and have people listen is usually all I need. I have 2 mottos: Tomorrow is fresh with no mistakes in it, and You can't fix stupid!

Good afternoon everyone!

I had a meeting with myself yesterday and decided to take a day off. My husband and I spent the day walking around at AG Progress Days in State College, PA. It was a lot of fun and we got a lot of free stuff. I also visited a booth on hydroponic gardening and it started me thinking about having fresh veggie all year long. My husband has agreed that if I want to do it, he will help me set up an area in the basement. I could grow lettuce, kale, tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, broccoli, cauliflower, ect.

My exercise today was walking and walking and walking from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. I didn't eat great, but did keep myself under control, so for a vaca day I call that a win.

Great job Jason on the loss! Keep it up! Also, don't rule out the fun and exercise you can get from games for the wii, just pick games that require movement. I like the Wii Fit games they help with balance, strength, and flexibility and they are a lot of fun.

Kimmy - sounds like you have had a long week. Enjoy your days off.

Elaine - You are right, now is not the time to kick a caffeine addiction so good job on the decision to just avoid. I am also gearing up for my daughter's first year in school and even though she will only be going for 3 days, it is a little overwhelming trying to schedule my trips, school, dance lessons, ect. But I am sure I will get in the swing of things and everything will go smoothly. If you can do it, so can I.

Mar - where are you? How was your day vaca?

Exercise Routines for Elliptical Trainers
I just joined WW and a women at my meeting was asking me about my exercise. When I told her about using an elliptical trainer she started asking me for advice on how to start and how to figure out routines. I told her I do intervals and that I started by doing what I could. She is up to 8 minutes. I also told her the machine probably has programed workouts, but she is a little hesitant since they are for longer time frames.

Does anyone know a good elliptical interval workout that would work for beginners as well as for me? Also, do you think I should recommend that she start stretching as well?

Jillian Micheal's 30 day shred
I also love her workouts. I have done the 30 day shred, but recently have fallen in love with her yoga inferno video. I especially like workout 2. It works your whole body, but leaves you feeling relaxed. My 3 year old is just becoming coordinated and loves to do jm videos because they are simple. They might be simple enough for my 3 yr old, but they are effective.

I had to get on my computer instead of on my kindle and then it worked.

Zumba
If you really want to know, get a calorie counter to wear and get a more accurate calorie count. You can get them as arm bands and watches. I used a watch to verify my Kinect's calorie count. They are based on heart rate.
