I am so excited that I made it. What is going to happen next after I travelled around the world? Anything I should know. All I am seeing is the credits coming up. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks! Sun, 25 Nov 2012 10:43:33 EST What about Exerbeat Hangman? So this is my thinking. We all know how to play Hangman, yes? We guess at letters that may be in a word, and if they aren't in it we gradually draw a stick figure hanging from a noose. <BR> <BR> Well, this is similar but with no hanging man, because I want to reward you, not punish! :-) <BR> <BR> I will post a quote with _ in place of letters and / separating the words. <BR> <BR> Your job will be to pick a letter or guess the quote. Quotes used in this game will be funny or inspiring quote... Sat, 17 Nov 2012 16:42:28 EST Exerbeat Bingo I'm thinking of starting up a game of Bingo using the Exerbeat game. <BR> <BR> How it would work is fairly simple... <BR> <BR> You each make up a bingo card (25 squares in a 5 by 5 formation), but instead of using numbers, you fill the squares in with any exercise from Aerobics, Hip Hop, Boxing and Karate (not the karate forms) that is under 5 minutes in duration. <BR> <BR> There are 36 to choose from. <BR> <BR> Then, each day I call 3 exercises. If you have them on your card, do the exe... Sat, 17 Nov 2012 06:32:36 EST Round the World Question Hi everyone, I am fairly new to Exerbeat and have a question about the Around the World aspect of the game. I have been around once and have started on the second trip. Do you get new information for each stop as you repeat trips around the world? Or does the game just repeat info you have seen before? <BR> Thanks for any help anyone can provide. Mon, 12 Nov 2012 13:03:19 EST Change in team leadership Hi all, <BR> <BR> I have been asked by CANDOK1260 to join her as a team leader in the apparent absence of SCIFIREADER. Should this simply be a spark glitch, and she hasn't actually stepped down, I am happy to step back down myself, as the last thing I want is to tread on any toes - and all this stepping up and down can be murder on the toes ;-) <BR> <BR> Hope everyone is having fun on Exerbeat. <BR> Hugs, <BR> Lex xxx Sun, 11 Nov 2012 09:25:57 EST Hi - New to Team Hello, I got Exerbeat a few weeks ago and love it. I've had the Wii Fit Plus for a year and it really helped me get moving. But I needed to up the challenge and Exerbeat is doing that for me. I enjoy the variety and the calorie burn. <BR> <BR> I had many health issues when i started out on a weight management program 13 months ago. I have lost 132 pounds so far and feel so much better. Sparkpeople and the Wii games have been a big part of my success. <BR> Sun, 23 Sep 2012 10:09:00 EST September Challenge Ok team, here is September's challenge which was suggested by KDE12345. <BR> <BR> Everyone keep track of your daily miles on Exerbeat and at the end of the month we will total up the miles. Our goal as a team is one million (1,000,000) miles. Thu, 30 Aug 2012 19:27:57 EST September Challenge Let's put our heads together team and come up with a challenge for September. We have our new member's, is there anything you all want to concentrate on? I don't mind if someone else wants to post a monthly challenge, we are all a team and if we work together we can do anything. Thu, 23 Aug 2012 17:20:10 EST Thankyou Thankyou for the lovely flowers goodie!

Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> Hope I'm not treading on any toes by suggesting this, but here goes... <BR> <BR> I was exercising with my Exerbeat and wearing my chocolate Gold Medal this morning (given to me by my daughter to cheer me up while I deal with some health issues). I wasn't wearing it and exercising at the same time, you understand. LOL <BR> <BR> Anyway, as I stood there, staring at the medals I'd earned in the boxing section of Exerbeat, I thought to myself that Exerbeat is the perfe... Sat, 28 Jul 2012 06:32:37 EST July Challenge Let's change up again and go visit the Dojo, Karate for July. See how many golds you can get. If you already have golds go for perfect scores.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I think I am in time with the trainer but the arrows are not registering. Anyway..... I figure I am still moving and exercising. <BR> <BR> Did a total of 33 minutes today. I unlocked a few more exercises. Thu, 7 Jun 2012 01:20:25 EST What is new in your life this month? Post anything new going on or just drop in and say HI. <BR> <BR> It is an adjustment getting used to another person in the house. My computer is in the little bedroom that my sis is using temporarily. She goes to bed at 8:30 to read so I have to be done on the computer by then.

Sat, 2 Jun 2012 08:08:59 EST Aerobics Challenge for June OK team, for this challenge I picked the area that I am not the best in and that is Dance. For this challenge lets stick with Aerobics. You have the entire month to open and get gold medals in the 20 aerobic workouts. This will be tough for me cause this girl has no rhythm. Let's have fun with it.

After the show my mom and I and my sister and three other friends stopped and had a couple of drinks and shared some appetizers. Was a good end to a gr...

Sun, 20 May 2012 21:32:07 EST Lets chat 5/15 to 5/19 I had off work today since I worked on Sat so I was rearranging the basement getting things ready for my sister to move in. My mom has to have someone here 24/7 now so my older sister gave notice at her job. Why pay a stranger when we can pay family to take care of mom.

Went out to my church at 0600 this morning to cook in the kitchen for a function we were having. Was a great day but long time on my feet.

Sat, 17 Mar 2012 15:04:18 EST Thursday chat After work I came home and sat out on the front porch with my mom and the two dogs and the cat. It was so nice out, I was looking forward to it all day. I have my workout area down in my basement and I switched things around today. Needed more room since my sister and a friend want to come over and workout also. So now I should be ready. <BR> Thu, 15 Mar 2012 19:58:50 EST Wednesday chat Just finished dinner and thought I would pop on quick before taking Mocha for a walk. It is a beautiful day here today, it hit 80 again. I had a productive day at work and came home and did some weeding in the flower beds. With such a mild winter here the weeds have taken over. Now want to go for a walk. Have a great night. Wed, 14 Mar 2012 18:00:35 EST Tuesday chat 03/13 Soon time to leave for work. Enjoying a cup of coffee to start the day.

I hope the challenge will help me improve. Post your distance here. Sun, 11 Mar 2012 09:43:35 EST What is your favorite routine on Exerbeat? I love the boxercise and the karate.

The only thing I do really well in are the boxing and karate. I have no rhythm so I don't do that well in the dance. If any...
