Well, take care of yourself Trishy!

The point of the challenges is to make ourselves healthier. Sometimes that may mean doing ST. Other times, it means not doing it!

(You can always participate in our upcoming recipe challenge.)

Unfortunately, I've been forced to sit on the sidelines due to my medical conditions flaring and having cellulitis...

But when I'm better, I'll be back in the challenges, going full-speed ahead!

I hope everyone's doing well with their challenges. Can't wait to get back into the game!

I'm a DONE girl now! DONE being a person I was unhappy being.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life, and I choose to MAKE IT COUNT!!!

I've started squeezing squats, lunges and counter push-ups in while I'm doing the dishes or cooking...

I do 2 sets of 10 wallies (wall push-ups), lunges or squats every time I use the bathroom...

I do bicep curls with my bags of groceries...

I figure if I can squeeze in a few ST exercises into the things that I have to do anyway, then eventually they'll add up to something.

The videos are great, if you have the space to watch them and do them at the same time. Last year, I ended up watching them first, taking notes, and then doing them elsewhere. That works too, although it's not as easy as just watching them and doing them at the same time.

One thing about my simple little ST exercises that I'm doing now -- I can do them while I cook! They are simple enough to do almost anywhere. I can do some of them right in the kitchen.

Thanks for providing the link to the overview, Diane. I guess I got link happy and forgot to include the most important one! Oops! lol

For anyone considering trying the New You Bootcamp Videos, I found them to be the easiest way to start doing strength training. When I first started, I was intimidated by the idea of reps and sets and counting and knowing what to do. With this series, Coach Nicole took all of the guesswork out of it. The videos are short (less than 10 minutes each), so they're definitely doable.

That's great, Trishy!

I was trying to keep it simple to not scare people away, but that is a great set up there. Maybe you could include a link in case any one wants to join you at that level.

Has anyone noticed that the SP exercise of the day is calf raises with a wall?

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=67


I plan to do them tomorrow, without a wall.

Today I did
wall pushups
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
es
.asp?exercise=107

and tricep extensions
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis

.asp?exercise=467

but I used a can of tomatoes instead of a medicine ball.
