Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in July. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? that is too much! cant do it! But i here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while sitting and leg raises. very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon
click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!

Amy have you tried any of the chair exercises from the first welcome to week 1 letter of the challenge. They have some good stuff there. I just don't know what you can do.
As for walking the pup, I know only too well about having to carry the pup home. Yesterday in the 98 degree weather my larger pup Zoe just gave up on the morning walk. She weighs 27 pounds and I should have counted that as a strength trainning event. Bizz is only 20 pounds and would have been easier to carry. Teehee Just happy that they both didn't give up on the walk or I'd have been carrying and extra 47 pounds ! Yes I'd say you can call it strength trainning ! Keep on working out as best as you can. I know that deep water walking is so very good for the back if you have a place to swim give it a try sometime !
