I am really trying to focus on trying lots of different exercises so that I am never bored.

Here is what I enjoy:

Strength training: a stability ball & dumbbells.

Cardio: Stationary bike, or biking outdoors in the summertime

Swimming! Laps, or simply floating in around the pool :)


Wii Fit

And of course, walking!

Other goals:

Hula Hooping: I don't know if it's because I'm overweight, or because I simply can not get the hang of it, I have never been able to hula hoop ever!! I bought a sparkly blue hoop that lights up and plays music but I am going to keep trying and one of these days I know I will figure it out.

And Pole Fitness dancing, the actual sport of it: There is a dance studio not far from where I live. I want to take lessons eventually. Or maybe other types of dance. I love to dance.

This is going to all take time, but maybe exercise can actually be kind of fun.

    What a fun and well rounded fitness plan. Hula hooping is great exercise and I've been wanting to get one. Can you recommend one?

    Great plan!! I want to do the same at the gym!! I want to work on the ellipticals twice a week and at least make it to 2 workout classes whether it's zumba or kickboxing, etc.

    WooHoo! Way to get some variety in your exercise. It is so easy to get caught up in the rut of doing the same things. I have made it a goal this year to try some different things. Keep working that hula hoop - you will master it!

I have tried many exercises and my favourites are Zumba and weight training. You will probably find a few that really speak to you. It is good that you are having variety that way you can't get bored. emoticon Way to go!

    I love doing things outdoors. I like taking my dog for a walk-its good incentive to get outside and make sure we both get exercise. He loves it too! I want to learn to hula hoop as well. Let me know how you make out!

    Trying to lose weight is a battle but since I incereased my exercise and watch my portions, I am losing again. I lost before but then fell off the wagon but back up again riding the waves of good health again.

On Tips for Writing and Weight Loss, my team, we have lots of people there trying to lose weight. Some struggle with it, others manage to take some off, and others put it back.

I like to invite you to my team and see if what we have to offer in health is what you are looking for. emoticon

    The hula hoop is a hard one but you can do it! With practice anything is possible. 2014 will be a success!

    Get a weighted hula hoop from a fitness store. It is larger than the average hula hoop and weighted. I love mine!

    Those are some great exercises! I was thinking about joining a belly dancing group, noticed a team or two hear on Spark.

    Very nice! I'm trying to try some new things, too. May have a swing dancing lesson and spin class in my future! I feel you on the hula hoop! I have one in my garage but I'm so bad at it! haha It's the same with jump rope... I can only do it for a very short time! Hopefully one day we'll get the hang of the hoop! Seems like it could be really fun!
