Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I love doing anything that requires your own physical power to move a vehicle - be it a boat or a bike. I usually bike down to the rowing club that I am a member of as a warm up, row, and then bike home as a cool down.

It's got to be walking/running, usually treadmill. I think my least favourite is elliptical. I quite like Zumba!

I would have to say Zumba, hands down. I have never looked forward to working out like I do with Zumba.
I'm also a fan of grabbing my ipod and heading out for a good hour long brisk walk. Just me, my music and my thoughts.

I want to try running too-sometimes walking is just toooo slow...Haven't committed just yet but sometimes will walk-run and try to beat my time around a set 1.5 mile path. I used to run a little, a long time ago and it does get addicting. It is hard while running but you just feel GREAT later!

Wii Rhythm Boxing??? Gonna have to try that!

I really love running. I've never really done much other than that. I usually run almost 2-3 miles three days a week. There is just something about music on the ipod and just running...

I decided that I'm ADD and I like to change things up all the time. 20 minutes of this, 20 minutes of that, lift this, lift that. I also read that changing exercise tactics helps keep your body from getting "set." It seems to make the exercise time fly by too.

most of what i can do now is walking - and exertubes for some strength
what i do not understand is 'your body gets used to what you do and you have change things up' - but isn't it still burning calories? why does the wt loss slow to a crawl or stop - just because you still walk the same route, distance and pace?
when people first start to exercise - they say ' just move' - then it all becomes very scientific, complicated and frankly discouraging.
i used to wt train, aerobisize and pilates - i was thinner then and much younger - but i never saw a huge difference in my body - it cost a lot for a personal trainer - but i had one for six months when i was a working person.
now it all seems as though i could have done a lot of cheaper stuff -

rage guilt and revenge - the late great nelson mendela said - IT IS LIKING TAKING POISON AND EXPECTING YOUR ENEMY TO SUFFER!!!

Just bought 10 pound dumb bells at WalMart. I'm really getting into "strength training". Never did it before. Muscles burn more calories. It is so hot in Florida in the summer. I like that I can exercise indoors in the AC.

I love to run!

And when I feel like my body needs something else, I do the step mill, the elliptical trainer, or a spin class. But, I always feel the most exhilarated when I run.
