My long term goals are to keep up with 30 minutes of cardio 5x a week and strength training 2x a week. Spring is just around the corner and that means outside gardening work. We plant a vegetable garden every year.

My long term plan is to kinda continue with what I've been doing for the last year or so. I've got a pretty good routine going and it seems to be working.

Everyday I dance for 15-20 minutes (using one of the 7 Wii dance games I have)
Every other day I do about 20 minutes of Strength Training
and every morning I do a circuit training inspired by TV's The Biggest Loser that lasts about 30 minutes

Now that I am nearing completion of this Challenge, I will try and incorporate some of these videos into my routine as well

Sometimes I change things up to "confuse" my body and get out of any ruts I may be in. Seems to be working. I've lost 50 pounds since joining SP. I feel pretty good about that!

I have saved exercise videos and will use these along with my own Exercise DVDs that I have.
To get up early and exercise before breakfast is something that I find I actually look forward to.

I plan to waking up early as usual to keep up with the exercising routine. I will be doing some outdoor running, exercising in the comforts of my room and also hitting the gym (this is what i call variation!)

I had to substitute other exercises or other videos for some of the workouts, but made it through the challenge enjoying exercise even more than before. It sure is a stress release as well as a fitness tool, and exercising is a great way to avoid sitting around being bored or anxious and eating when not truly hungry:)

That's an amazing accomplishment! I hope I can lose that much in 6 months. Do you have any advice? I joined Sparkpeople on January 1st with good intentions, but I've been struggling to stay on track.

It took me around 6 months to reach 120 lbs (lost 25 lbs) :) Probably would've happened a little sooner, but I caved to holiday eating a bit ;)

Goals for this week:

1) Drink 6 - 8 glasses of water M-F

1-22-12 -- Day 1 video
1-23-12 -- Day 2 video. 20 min Zumba - wii + 10 min bootcamp cardio video
1-24-12 --
1-25-12 --
1-26-12 --
1-27-12 --
1-28-12 --

I'm not really sure what I want to do for my long Term Fitness Plans. I'm thinking I may go through the 28 day bootcamp videos here on Sparkpeople :) Pretty much my plans are to just keep doing what I'm doing. Keep eating decently well and keep on being active :) Current activities include SP workouts, Zumba and dog walking (when it's not too cold!). Also sometimes the stationary bike and treadmill.
