Elaine, me too! I bought them and I've had them a week. I haven't even played them yet!

It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a facade of order - and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.

As for me, I really need to just put on my fitness DVDs and just do it!

My DVD player is conked out but that no excuse, as I can still do it on the PC!

Let's hold each other accountable!

We CAN DO THIS!!!

I am SO like that. I need to register for a class and spend my hard earned money on it and then I will get up and go do the same thing I could do at home. What's up with that?

Thanks Carol, I'm sorry I fizzled out on the May Challenge. I was all gung ho in the beginning then I lost my steam.

Changes I need to make...
1. Watch LESS television
2. Do more cooking

Oh Gee Carol,

I wish I had gotten back to you sooner. I think our posts were in Jan. of this year. And, now my little Ricky is gone to the Rainbow bridge and WOW, reading my post sure brought back all the memories of what a wonderful companion he was to me. I miss walking with him.

YOU are so right when you say, 10 min of the treadmill beats 0 min!! Are you still doing your old challenge?? I'm wondering if I'm ready to do it with you. Could you still use some company?

Yes, Paula, I'm like you, not a fitness person, plus I have so many issues with my back, leg, and wrists. But I've learned even 10 min. of the treadmill beats 0 min.! I've just started (second week) on my old challenge that worked for me. If you want to join me I'll post it here. I could use some company.

Hi ladies, I'm working at getting back into the Spark groove and am happy to say I've gotten a streak going the is one week of logging in daily and tracking food and fitness. Now I'm getting back to my Teams. I really miss all of you.

As I'm reading the posts here, I am remembering how much the support and camaraderie helps and is such good motivation. I'm not a BIG fitness buff. I am so thankful that my doctor told me to NOT worry about it. She said get out and do whatever you can do. Moving is BETTER than doing NOTHING. So, I love to walk with Ricky, it seems when he stops to pee, is just when I need to take a break and stretch. PERFECT!

I'm not really sure. Hopefully someone here can help you. If not- perhaps you can try doing both, maybe do each way for several days and see which way feels better to you.

Welcome Starr,
I can relate to just pulling the covers over your head, I have to deal with that everyday. No time to explain tonight, but I will in the next day or two. DH is calling out to me. It's past bedtime, not that I will be able to sleep til the wee hours.

Oh, Starr, you have LITERALLY made my day. YES, Come and join us. I've posted the first part. It's "easy" and "not so easy". I know- I am DREADING that scale. BUT- it's the first step. Knowledge is power. We have to know where we're starting to know where we're going. Sounds easy, not so much tho. Let's take courage in hand and do it together. If nothing else we'll know we're not alone that morning taking that first step. :)

I KNOW what you mean about bed and those covers. But we know that will not help and only make things worse. Just do the best you can. One day at a time...

And you have NO idea how much we will enjoy having you join us in our daily chatter. If you can't make it every day, that's ok. We all miss, but there always seems to be someone there to chat with. Sending you LOTS of hugs. Talk to you tomorrow. :)

Carol,

I would love to join you all on your new challenge and chat with you all. That would be great!

And I agree that being depressed does make it so much harder to do ANYTHING. People who do not have a lot of depression in their life just do not understand. I have heard people say, "well just do it anyway, it is not that hard". But in some cases, that is much easier said then done. The mind is a large influence of being successful, also on being unsucessful!!

In all honesty, if I had my way about it, I would rather stay in bed with the covers over my head on more days of the week then I care to count.

Let me know about the challenge, ok?

~~Starr~~

HAPPY 2014. MAKE IT A FUN & HEALTHY YEAR!

Oh, yes I DO know what you mean Starr. I have pain issues, not nearly as bad as you, but it makes exercising very difficult. I also deal with depression and it does make it so much harder to do ANYTHING. I feel so very badly for you. Come join us in our new challenge and chat with us when you can. We're here to support you in any way we can. I'm planning a challenge that will gear us up slowly and we only do what we feel we want to or can do. As much or as little...
I do hope you'll join us.

I exercise as much as I can, but that is not much. Maybe walking for 10 - 20 minutes 2 or 3 times a week. With the Fibro & CFS & back & knee/ankle pain, it is SO hard to exercise. But I try. And I try to keep a "healthy" tab on my eating, but when I am depressed (which I am a great deal of the time) it is difficult to even care what I am eating. You know what I mean?

Well, I really can't exercise with all my back/leg issues. Nothing that will help me really lose weight anyway. But I need to get back at counting calories.
I've been so busy this past 2 weeks, will try and get on here more now, but no promises- life is going to be hectic now that mom's back again.

I set an alarm, and when it goes off, I stop whatever I am doing and go exercise, or track food. AND I don't let myself get sidetracked. Seems to help when you're not very motivated.
Thanks Carol for posting already.

I NEED to get serious again, just can't seem to find the ambition/drive to work on losing that weight. Too "comfy" or maybe lazy. Hoping with warm weather I'll be more motivated.
