I picked up one of those low to the floor kind at a garage sale last summer for $3. I have been known to let fitness equipment gather dust, so I didn't want to spend a lot. It is a pretty good workout, but until recently (until I lost some weight and gained some flexibility) I had a bit of trouble getting down that low to get on and off of the thing, LOL.

Whoops, I forgot to post my long term goals. I plan to continue to build on what I have started, fitting in opportunities to move and breathe at every opportunity.
I am trying new things -- yoga for "recovery" days and continued building of the cardio. If I have to throw on a heavy backpack for going on walks, I guess I will! LOL. Honestly, this has been so fun I can't imagine stopping!
I have also set a goal of doing a 5k walk/run in April -- the one that kicks off our season here -- and have enlisted quite a few friends to join in with me.
This challenge has been just what I needed. I have managed at least 10 minutes almost every day -- I think I missed one day. It is a great reminder that 10 minutes is almost nothing. I have squeaked in at least a walk (though with snow and ice on the ground that is tougher) every day and have found different ways to incorporate that into my life. I even dragged the big hula hoop out and have it in the living room. I never watch TV, but now I do -- because I can use a half hour show as a "timer" for my hooping! The rowing machine is out there too, but I use that much less.
Get used to seeing me around, because I'm not going anywhere!
