I just had my second hand surgery in a month and I'm still recovering from the last one (Dec. 26). That is my obstacle right now, but I'm not going to quit. I know this is just a short term setback. So I went back to my short-med.- long term goals and updated them. It was great to see I have made some progress and now I need to challenge myself again.

I am a bit behind on the videos. I have had a bad headache and backache for the past few days- hoping its not that dreaded flu. But, aside from today, I have gotten in my 60 minutes of cardio (walking and running). I guess one day off is okay!! Hopefully I will be back on track tomorrow!!

You're going to do great! One step at a time is the way to go. Doing too much too quick might show quick results but you'll be more likely to burn out faster in my experience. Good luck! I hope you are able to get some exercise in today!

Stacey. Why wait until tomorrow? Why not start today. Remember, if you have not been exercising for a while you should start slow. Every little bit helps. We are here to help you stay motivated. If you have any questions or need motivation just let us know. There is always someone available to provide help to you.
Have you given any thought to joining a Pilates (at home) practice. We would appreciate your stopping by 'Pilates Lovers' and checking out what we offer.
Happy New Year!

Today, I am starting again. For breakfest I had 2 toaster waffles, half a banana, 3 slices of turkey bacon, glass of water, and a coffee with low fat cream and 1 sweetener. I am a self admitted junk food addict...mostly chocolate is something I cant give up. So i am going to limit myself to one lindor chocolate today and for snack tonight have a zip lock bag with popcorn. Compared to the non stop junk snacking I usually do this is a big change! I am going to do some cardio in my room and streches for 30 mins. One day at a time. I will check in tomorrow and keep motivated that way. I also find it helps to put on your work out clothes and running shoes when you wake up.. so that way even if i dont make it to the gym ill work out a bit at home.I dont have a car and sometimes it can be hard getting to the gym in this cold weather. I also plan to weigh in every week so next Monday I will report my success!! Good luck all and Happy New Year!! A new year, a new you! TEAM- together, everyone, achieves, more!! -Stacey
