Go into fitness and there is a whole section of exercises for strength. Check out the Spark America topic in the General Team Discussion Forum. Lots of great exercises there in the fitness section with and without Tools. For people with disabilitis and those without.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Those of you that have known me awhile know that until the first of January I had stubbornly resisted exercise.

I now own an exercise DVD that I avoid like the plague. It's really hard but it's a start. I began walking on a beautiful river path near where I work. I learned that I prefer to walk first thing in the morning before I get to work. That helps to keep me from finding 1001 reasons to avoid or skip it.

I am the proud owner of a shiny new MP3 player to help me to enjoy the time.

I would very much like to add strength training like SP suggests too. I just am not sure how to go about it. I looked at dumbells today. I admit confusion. They would work for the arms but what do you do for the legs? Also how do you know what movements to do?

Any all suggestions would be fantastic :)

Even if you are on the right track you will get run over if you just sit there.

emoticon Music! The thing I use most consistantly to exercise is music!

emoticon When I walk (with or without varying sized handweights), I always have my ipod shuffle on with only music that is upbeat to keep me going strong.

emoticon When the weather is warmer, I ride a bike. I love outdoors so I try to spend time outside whenever weather permits.

emoticon Oh yeah, and I dance around my kitchen while I cook dinner - again, the ipod is on.

Hmmm to tell you the truth, I walk mostly. But i have a stability ball, which only acts as an extra chair in the office. I requested some dumb bells for Christmas and haven't used them yet. emoticon
