Hey sparkbuddy - welcome to this team. My brother is a nurse too. He's in Australia. Nurses rock!!

Have a super day emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Welcome. I wear my pedometer all day and have "target" steps for my day so I can reach my walking goals most of the time.

I pack my food so I'm not tempted to do "take out" or hit the cafeteria. I plan my breakfast, lunch and a couple of snacks. I make sure I get my water in also. It is hard, but it is important to take care of yourself.

Make sure you get in good walks on your days off. Start with 15-20 minutes and work up to a comfortable distance.

You can do this.

Welcome,

Walking is the easiest exercise to start in terms, both in terms of low impact and can be fit in anywhere (even marching in place in a closet if you had no other place available). While at work you may have plenty of hallways to walk in, if you need options outside of work for when the weather is bad, check out Leslie Sansone's walking dvds. Her exercise videos are low impact and very simple. Even I can follow along and I trip over my own feet.

Welcome!
I know you will like this walking team!
I worked as an LPN for 30 years- 7 of those years were in ICU's. I learned alot.

I think this is a fun web site and it holds my interest. Hope it will do the same for you.

Hi Steve and welcome to the team. This is a great place to start. Start off slowly with the walking and gradually increase the time and pace. If you have any question, just ask and someone will give you and answer. There is great support and information here.

My name is Steve Boling. I am a 43 year old ICU nurse who is tired of not "fitting" in. I want to be able to ride roller coasters and do other activities like the rest of the world. I'm not a person who feels sick. I'm just too large for the world around me. I hope to find information and motivation.
