This is actually my 2nd Forum to join. I just clicked with the title. I have bought so many exercise aids, diet aids, etc.....but it's all about getting out there and "Moving It". I like the title so much. Lets "Move It Anyway You Can"! <BR> <BR> I hope everyone has a great day! My goals today are to get outside and move around and to hook up my Wii again.

Except for Norah I don't think anyone is really active on the team. I'f I'm wrong let me know. If there's no activity in the next 24 hrs, I think I too will leave the team and we can all find support elsewhere.

I'll try my best and appreciate any help or insight. <BR> I see this team as a sort of empowerment for those of us who aren't totally focused on a specific exercise -- we'll do Zumba one day, ellpitical another, maybe a Firm DVD. <BR> Let's all keep moving. <BR> <BR> Fri, 13 Jan 2012 21:13:34 EST 500 mile challenge for January 2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x52931x45740753 Happy New Year fellow team members.

Tue, 1 Nov 2011 06:15:14 EST Hello ALL http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x52931x44639204 Hello everyone, <BR> My name is Jennifer and I am from Utah. I currently have about 34 pounds to lose to get to my goal. I have lost 40 pounds already but have hit a plateau. I am now working with a trainer once a week, working out 3 - 5 times a week and changing up my nutrition to try and break past this plateau. I am SUPER excited to make it. I am excited to be a part of this team and love the idea of the big support group. Motivation is a BIG part for me in making it to my goal. Mon, 17 Oct 2011 22:28:16 EST Hello! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x52931x44614520 I received a lovely email about this group so I thought I'd give it a look. I am 33 yo with 3 children, 5 and younger. I try to exercise 4+ days a week but it's not always easy. Excuses? Maybe :-) I have found a love for the jogging stroller and/or the treadmill at night. I look forward to hearing many creative, enjoyable ways to get exercise in! Sun, 16 Oct 2011 14:29:07 EST Did I miss something? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x52931x44486574 I'm not complaining - I'm just curious. When did the team change? I'm all for it -- I dont' JUST walk but it took me by surprise this am. <BR> It's beautiful fall weather today so I think I shall take a nice walk in the State Game Lands before hunting season gets in full swing (Archery is on but I have my orange).

A couple of tablespoons of low-sodium vegetable broth can be used instead of oil or butter in your stir fry or as the basis for a sauce. This method will add a nice flavor to your dish as well as a little moisture—and you'll save calories to use elsewhere. To get a dose of unsaturated fats, serve your broth-sautéed veggies with a side salad, and pour an olive oil-based dressing over the top.

Just because it costs a dollar doesn’t mean that it is a bargain especially if you don't need it. Stick to the list! <BR> <BR> Overspending without thinking is easy at dollar stores, so before you toss an item into your cart, ask yourself whether it’s on your list– and, if it’s perishable, whether you will consume it before it spoils. <BR> Thu, 15 Sep 2011 08:20:31 EST Halloween Trick or Treat Virtual 5K http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x52931x44090293 Who is planning on doing this?
