On my busiest days the Spark People videos are a great way to squeeze in a workout. Looking forward to longer days so that evening walks are a more viable option.

the walk to and from the train to get to work covers me for my 10 minutes (and a bit more), so I also joined the 28 day boot camp challenge, to make things interesting! LOL!

This sounds interesting so I joined. I actually go for 30 minutes a day and danced thru the house for 10 minutes today. Later I will walk to work be on my feet for the better part of 8 hours then walk home. I have a 10,000 step per day goal as well. 2 weeks ago I broke my toe at work so it did slow me down a bit I still tape it and wear a surgical shoe but I'm making my steps again.

This week I am walking 20 minutes on the treadmill each day at 3 mph. (actually I have changed the speed up and down every 1/5 of a mile but averaged 3mph). I have done 5 days so far (started on Saturday). The third day was really hard as I substituted at school that day and was really tired that evening. The 20 minutes seemed to take FOREVER. I am so glad I made myself do it as the last two days have been easier and I have actually enjoyed them. Next week I want to add some strength training 3 days a week and some light yoga the other 4 days. Not sure what to do for the strength training so I need to spend time looking into that.

Starting back with the exercise.
Went on a dog walk this morning but forgot to attach my fitbit! I'll do the 10min Sparkpeople cardio workout before work but I'm going to have to keep moving today to get my goal of 15000 steps
I love the videos on this site, and I'm trying a different one every week or so.

SRM033, if you go to the videos section of the site there are some chair exercises in the videos. Some are seated exercises, others are standing using a chair for balance and things like that.

Walked the halls of the community college where I work. It's about a quarter of a mile. I'm hoping to get this walk in two or three times a day...I'll get on the exercise bike when I get home!

Just found this team. Just what I need! 1/3 was 1st day on my new year exercise resolution. I walked 1 block, and spent 5 minutes on recumbent bike. Today I'll do the same, plus MSHADNOT's trick of exercising with every bathroom break.(except in middle of night).

Someone else suggested doing wall push ups with bathroom breaks.

Let the good times increase as the weight shrinks.

10 minutes on my minitramp

Put on some upbeat music.
If you find yourself dancing in your seat, take it a step further. Get up and start dancing on your feet.
You'll burn more calories that way.

In response to the question about the activity trackers - Despite all of the ads on Spark People - the Vivofit does not appear to be one of the trackers we can connect to. Not that I've seen in any case - I got used to the ease of having the fitbit sync, I took for granted that the vivo fit would - I mean they are advertising it here. I was wrong. :)

I am Enough - right now.

I just saw this post so I will begin showing my exercise log.

Nov. 1 30 min cycling for 7.57 miles

Nov. 2 30 min cycling for 6.23 miles

Nov. 3 60 min cycling for 14.2 miles

Nov. 4 rest day, just did a slow 15 min walk

Nov. 5 30 min cycling for 7.04 miles plus 30 min cycling for 5.22 miles

Right now just trying to get back into the exercise habit, will be changing up my cardio and adding strength training soon. I started exercising again October 30th and I already feel really good. Participating with SP is helping me a lot.
