Oooh, an elliptical trainer! I'm so jealous! I would love one of those -- and the space to have one. LOL!

I love using the one at the rec center, but I just can't make myself go there often enough (and carving out the time is nearly impossible, too).

I do have my elliptical, so I can get in a good 20 or minutes at home, and I like videos, too, so I can vary it up a bit. My problem is simply getting off my butt and doing it! 'Cause I'm lazy, and I hate to exercise!

Beats me! I did commit to 15 min a day IN FRONT OF THE TV. I am just going to do exercises I know and want to do while watching TV. I really really hate exercise videos. I'll turn one on and it just makes me want to scream to think of doing the same thing again and looking at the same people saying and doing the exact same thing as last time. I don't have money to acquire a stash of DVDs either. Still, I just can't stand the idea of seeing them all again.

I am mostly doing callanetics because it is the only thing I ever did that I could see actually lifting and firming my flabby behind and in a short period of time.

Hearty ditto. I've had such a hard time breaking my recent plateau, and I think exercise is the culprit. How do exercise when you have four kids in your house, and it's -20 C outside?? I'm longing for spring, when I can go walking early in the mornings again.

I really wanted to but I just have no way to train. I have no babysitter when it is light out, no treadmill or exercise machine, a neighborhood that is all steep hills, no car, it's freaking cold etc... :( If it were warmer weather I might be able to work something out but I just don't see how I can right now.

Not a bad idea. And if it makes us exercise...LOL

Btw, are you still thinking of doing that 5k in March? I'd like to, but I've not been training. I wonder if I can still get in shape by then?

Hey, it's Angela. This place looks like a lot of fun. I joined a while back and never came back. Maybe I can make some positive use of it this time. :~)
