Lynda my darling girl it's great that you are planning to get the PS3 but, what are you going to do in the meantime? How about putting on some music and doing some of your kendo moves to it? Or just dancing around and practice some Shakira moves. Your exercise cannot be dependant on you getting the game console. And congrats on being good enough to make it to black belt. I don' t know what Kendo is but, I am assuming it's some kind of martial arts. You need to build your stamina moving to music is a start. Keep us all posted girlie.

Hey, it's me, Lynda. As posted elsewhere and as my username intimates, I enjoy the sport of kendo. However, when not at my once-a-week class, I don't practice. I've found I need others to spur me on. Also, as posted elsewhere, I regularly climb and descend the steps at work. But, I need MORE - my eating is greater than my exercising. Or at least, they're canceling each other -- have not lost any weight in over a month. Running is not my thing...it's boring.
Resolution (for me): A game console, Playstation 3. Systems like Wii, X-Box and Playstation 3 all have some type of 'game' where you can move, dance, and manage weight.
Been able to make big payments on my bills and as a sort of reward to myself, I decided that this year I will get the PS3...as long as I get the exercise accessories to go with it.
I'm not much of a morning person and am Definitely a night owl. Rather than sit around on the futon all night, I can get home, start a game, and get moving.
Why am I posting this? I figure I can let you all know how it works out. I'm not out to lose pounds and pounds, but I see my couch-potato-ness as a bad habit I want to kick. Also, I have been told that I will probably test for shodan in July. That means a black belt test. That means I will need more stamina than I have now. I need to wait a paycheck or so before I make my console and games purchase, but I will keep all you FABULOUS people posted on my progress!! If it works for me, maybe it can work for you, too!
