My Goals:
I'd like to lose 20-30#, paint another picture this winter, get my children's book sent around to 10 different publishers and contract 12 restaurants for next year.

My Program:
Haven't got a plan for exercise yet, had to quit the YMCA, but I am dancing once a week and have been riding my bike over the summer. Need a substitute for that during the winter.

Personal Information:
I was raised mostly in Colorado but live in MO now. I like to read, listen to music, grow flowers, paint, sew and spend time with friends.

yeah, that can be a problem. When I get my exercise room set up it won't have a computer, so I'm planning to put in a small tv from the good will and a DVD or video player. then I can use DVDs or videos. I have Videos of Richard simmons.

I might put the Wii up there too, since I like to use it a lot for the exercises.

OR, if you have a burner, you could possibly burn the exercises you want from spark people onto a DVD but you'd probably have to hit play after each one so the next one would play. at the very least.

Thanks, Kitty, I'll look for the videos on Spark People. I can't do them here in the computer room though. emoticon

I find the spark teams (based on personal interests) to be a big help for keeping me motivated. And they're full of advice on any issues.

For exercise I like my wii but if you don't have one get a dvd or two and start with those. someone said Leslie Sansone has several at Walmart, called Walking weight off. Some are short and some are long. lots of people like those. One has five 10 minute workouts. also get some hand weights or resistance band, they're cheap and effective.

There are lots of exercise videos on spark people showing you how to do different things and also some that are specific lengths so you can choose how long you want to work out.

Hope this helps, Sis
