Good morning Good Morning! You're doing so great Theresa!

It's a two way street! You are totally motivating me too! I did BodyFlex today and went for a walk. I'm so glad every time I can say that I did my BodyFlex and it helps to be able to tell you about it.

We're up against it with all that candy, huh? But we know what to do - we just have to do it!

Thanks for letting me know about your great success!!!!

Thanks! You did great by me! I've done my BodyFlex two days in a row now. I really love it. I get a sense of accomplishment after just a few minutes.

Somehow, with all the company and stuff, I wasn't doing it for a week. Then you wrote and it got me going again.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I find things have been slipping for me. I have to readily pay attention when I have that all or nothing attitude creep into my life. It's one of the reasons why BodyFlex works so well for me. Just a few minutes and wow, my energy is up and I've accomplishes a goal!

Congratulations on Monday's efforts. Now it's Friday! Can you do it again today? You're inspiring me to get back to it!

Maybe it doesn't have to be too serious. emoticon . Maybe just a few breaths, here and there, in your car, or in the grocery store (yes w are often alone even there!). You'll get back to the full routine soon.

Let us know how you feel with the bar.

I think that doing the breathing technique and lifting the weights is working faster than if I just did the weights by themselves. I'm only doing 3 reps of each posture.

I have the original VCR tapes, too...but I haven't done them in forever. I don't still have a VCR!
I do have that body bar, though and the poses are shown on it...thought about starting that again! I have to DO not THINK. though!!!

Yes! I got the tapes from amazon. For some reason we still have a VCR! I have the ancient tapes with Greer in her big old 80's hair. I also got the Advanced BodyFlex which isn't from that same era.

I think these tapes are wonderful and I think they are why my weight has finally dropped and I lost a size in March. You gotta do the tape every day.

Also I have been really focusing on the in breath - check out Greer's neck when she breathes in - her muscles stand out. And I've bern really careful while holding my breath to be sure that I don't breathe any air in by mistake.

What BodyFlex toils are you using? Book? CD's? Videos?

Rosalie,
Do you have the Body Bar that Greer had out a long time ago? If so have you had any
success with it?

I've been listening to some of Greer's tips. She says to do BodyFlex breathing whenever we think of it. Like in your car. Or before you start up a flight of stairs. Or when your pushing your grocery cart to the car!

So I've been adding more BodyFlex breaths into my day. I think they're helping! I figure Greer probably does 100s of these breaths a day! Could that explain her teeny tiny waist? Hmmmm!
