I have been trying for several years to get healthier and more active. I have been working out with workout videos and DVDs, generally 3-5 times a week. I do step, aerobics, stability ball, yoga, and weight-lifting. I particularly enjoy Sharon Mann's The Works workouts. videofitness.com is a great site for getting information on workout DVDs and videos.

I am studying karate, and I love it! I have a double black stripe belt, and I'm now in hard training for my black belt, which I hope to earn sometime this year. Both of my daughters have black belts. My oldest has a black belt second degree and she is now teaching karate at our dojo, and my youngest has her black belt, first degree, although she's not in active training now.

I wore a pedometer daily for a long time, and I used it to participate in the Eowyn Challenge, since I'm a big Lord of the Rings fan. I made it all the way to Mount Doom and back, recording a total of over 4,000 miles. Read about the Eowyn Challenge here:

One thing I also did recently is to buy a Laptop Lunches lunch box. See the website here: http://www.laptoplunches.com/ I first learned about them when I ran across the Vegan Lunchbox site here: http://veganlunchbox.blogspot.com/ which has a lot of very cool and interesting ideas for packing your own lunch. My Flickr pictures of some of the lunches I have packed are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/19648011@N00/

I want to drop perhaps ten more pounds. I think tracking everything I eat will help.
