You are so blessed that your husband will take Ballroom dancing with you. That is great. My DH and I take country line dancing and I do Zumba. I change up my exercise routines with different DVD's so no matter what my mood I have something appealing, from pilates, aerobics, dancing, etc. Do what appeals to you the most and break it down to 10 minutes bursts in the beginning (3x a day) until you are able to do a whole DVD.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Fun is different for different people... I enjoy training for something. this year I trained and walked a 1/2 marathon (21 km or 13.1 miles). I joined a walking clinic at my local running store. Trained 3 days a week with them and then on my own. I also enjoy a low impact aerobics and wieghts class at my gym. This gets me out of the house, prevents me grazing, meet nice people, enjoy the outdoors and gets me into shape. It works for me.

I like mixing it up. I generally run Mon-Fri on my lunch while at work and in the mornings I switch up between 4 or 5 DVD workouts. The mix-up of the routine keeps it fun for me and helps th exercise not become too monotonous.
I am new to this team and I need some fun. I am doing fairly well, but only because I am visiting my daughter who is my mentor! When I go home I will be counting on SP. Lets share all the ways getting healthy IS fun. So far, its work. I am happy to be improving - but wouldn't mind having some fun too!!! My suggestion is Ballroom Dancing. My husband and I are taking lessons. It is great fun and keeps us active and together. I can't wait to get back to the studio. However, that is not enough. What are your suggestions?
