I saw the 10 minute cardio and kick boxing videos and will probably give it a try. I'm being careful in what I eat as I got those microwave meals that are low calorie as well as eating Special K cereal with low fat milk and Chewy bars. I was wondering how often I should do the video and what other videos I should mix it up with... Tue, 4 May 2010 04:01:44 EST Hello from Anaheim Hills Hi <BR> I am new to this site.

Thu, 31 Jul 2008 02:45:17 EST looking for walking buddy I am new to this forum but I am looking for a walking buddy in the late afternoon/early evening. I am near St. College/Lincoln so there are parks and the riverbed as options. I want to get started but think I will be more motivated if I have to be accountable and not just able to put it off. Please let me know. Fri, 9 May 2008 00:14:18 EST Thoughts for the day... I remember being a member of one of the biggest pay-for-use diet websites and being very successful. One of the things that worked best for me was the fact that the ladies in the group I found posted each day about their successes, challenges and in general what was going on in their lives. I got to know those ladies very well (and miss them greatly). When I left that site due to complete chaos in my life (divorce will do that) I was very sad, I even return when my life settled, but the group... Tue, 29 Apr 2008 10:08:40 EST What time is a good time to walk during the Summer Since I am not a avid walker they say it is good not to walk between 12 and 2 pm because of the heat, does this still stand true? Sat, 26 Apr 2008 16:58:13 EST Come on out an walk Hi - I see some of you visiting the page and posting to blogs - now lets see some of you join us for our weekend walks. We meet at the riverbed off Lincoln and Batavia. Usually we walk about an hour. <BR> You want to be sure to have good sneakers.

I also lost my large intestine to Ulcerative Colitis about the same time. My diet is very restrictive as my illness wasn't completely cured and I have something called Pouchitis now. I take anti-biotics daily to stay healthy. I have to eat a low-fiber diet. This means no fresh veggies but iceburg lettuce and I tolerate raw spinach and cabbage in small amounts. <BR> Fruits are limited too - I am not supposed to eat anything with a... Sun, 6 Apr 2008 16:48:24 EST Wanna walk? Okay, here we go, I am in the middle of Anaheim, not far from the Lincoln entrance to the riverbed. I am training for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and will be walking this Saturday starting at 9:00am. If anybody wants to join me that would be great! Only I hope you aren't afraid of dogs, I will be brining my good friend Stoli along for the ride. Thu, 31 Jan 2008 18:41:23 EST New Team: CALIFORNIANS SPARK TOGETHER While there are many California Teams based on the areas in which members live, there is no one team where we can all get together and compare areas, challenges, offer support to each other; or just chat, moan, groan and gossip. Hopefully this will be the Team where we can do just that. If you live in California, please come check out the team. Hope to see some of you there.
