Well, I mix things up as much as I can for not having a gym membership or a treadmill at home. I have free weights, exercise ball, exercise bands, workout dvd's. I try and do kickboxing a lot because I love it, but then on the weekends I will go the park and run. Then every other day, I try and do interval traning of some sort to get my heart rate up. Part of the problem is that I don't eat as great as I did before. I mean I eat healthy, but I was really watching it back then! I mean every little thing! I was eating salads every time we went out and I skipped a lot of junk on special occasions. I just need to get back into really watching it. I still watch what I eat and I eat single servings at dinner and lunch, but I'm just not as good about it as I was before. So that is partly my problem. According to my heart monitor, I am still burning about 5,000 calories a week! That isn't too shabby!

Well Maintaining is better than gaining.... lol

What have you done to mix things up? I have heard than if a person goes from the low end of the recommended caloric range up to the high end for one day,m then back down, or vise versa, it confuses the body and get it to start releasing the weight. Have you tried that?

I have not because my home life has been so mixed up this past year, and I have not even been able to weight myself. I hope I can get settled in fairly quickly, but it may take a couple of months to get all the boxes moved over to the new place, but I am hoping to quickly find my kitchen scales and really start working my program again.

Have a Marvelous Monday. TTYL.

emoticon Littlewind53! I am doing pretty good! I have been trying to lose the last 10 lbs but so far I have only managed to maintain my weight for the last two years, but I guess I should consider that an accomplishment! I was glad to see you posting on our team again! I hope things go well with your new apartment! emoticon emoticon

Hey, Dawn. How are you doing?

I will be moving in a couple of weeks, -- I will have my own apartment again, I am so excited. But once I get sort of moved in and settled, I will be checking out the chair exercise team for myself......

I would suggest you check out the chair exercise team. And the limited mobility resource centre here on Spark. They may be able to offer any number of suggestions and alternatives.

Good luck.
