Hi! I'm not only new to this team, but I am new to Spark People. I am so blessed to have a home gym! We remodeled our garage into an apartment for my son and his wife to live with us until they could buy a home of their own. When they moved out, it became a gym! So now I have zero excuses, right? I have everything I need to follow Jillian Michaels' Frontside and Backside circuit training DVDs. When I conquer those, I will be on the lookout for a new challenge. Also, I am preparing for a local 5k on November 9, so I walk 3 days/week in addition to the 6 days/week of the DVDs. There is nothing that keeps me on track like a chart, so I created a schedule for myself to check off every day. I even check off my "rest" days!

Hello =) New member since September 13th. My name is Monica and I am in my early 40's and love to workout at home and in the great outdoors. I live in the Western part of Canada... born and raised here. The videos/dvds that I like working out too are: Tae Bo w/Billy Blanks, Power Walking w/Leslie Sansone, The Next Challenge w/Radu and Cindy, and Yoga w/Rodney Yee. I will be adding Jillian Michael's Dvds and when I'm ready Supreme 90 day. I have a huge library of exercise videos to choose from but I am one who likes to buy and collect more of them. LOL emoticon

emoticon I'm trying to lose 25 pounds... and it's nice to come to SparkPeople to get support and motivation to keep on track with exercises and the food I consume throughout the day. Also making sure I drink and keep well hydrated.

Glad to be part of this group forum!

Hi Everyone! My name is Karen. I live in Ontario, Canada. I prefer working out at home cause then I don't have to GO out to do anything. I have found Leslie Sansone - my goal, to start, is 2 nights a week doing a 2 mile walk in 30 mins.

I walk at least 4 days at lunch with a friend - 5km in about an hour and if I miss that, I find I'm tired by 3. I need that.

I am looking forward to chatting with you all!

Yes, it is. However "find a way". You'll never regret the effort. Your boys can "play" with you.

Hello Everyone! My name is Kristen, and I am from Nova Scotia, Canada. I am currently a stay-at-home-mom who lives out in the middle of nowhere. Most of my time is spent with my little guy who will be four this Christmas as my husband works evenings Monday-Thursday. Because I am with my son so much I often end up working out at home, which I kind of prefer for the most part.
I look forward to getting to know my fellow team mates here!
Cheers!

Hey Everyone,
My name is Erin, I'm 38, and live near Galveston, Tx. I have been on and off sparkpeople for 3 or 4 years. I have a lot of problems with back and neck pain. I love to be active and used to join a gym, then get hurt and not be able to go. Paying for a membership and not being able to use it drives me crazy. So now my plan is to exercise at home. I have dvds, kinect, dogs to walk... lots of things to keep me active and from getting bored.... plus no gym fees!
I can't wait to hear what everyone does to exercise at home.

Hello! My name is Pam and I live in Atlanta. I stay home and homeschool my two boys (6 & 10), tutor chemistry & physics, and enjoy biking, running, hiking, and dancing. I have been on spark for a few years, I've had lots of success (off & on) with weight loss and fitness accomplishments for the past 5 years. Two years ago I had lost my most weight, 44 lbs. After gaining 10 lbs. back, I sat plateaued for a year. I've struggled with injuries most of this year, and after really getting taken out of the fitness game in early July while continuing to eat like a training triathlete, I'm now sitting 20 lbs. above my lowest low.

I'm here looking for an active team to check in with regularly. I was part of a wonderful team of awesome ladies that has seen a serious decline in activity over the last couple months. I really feel that I need the support of a team right now to help me stay accountable.

Hi all! I'm Amy. I did the gym and loved it but lack of babysitter in the morning I gave it up and now workout at home. I am purchasing the Jillian Michaels Body Revolution workouts to try something different. I did P90X, Chalene Exreme, Turbo Jam, Body Pump, Body Combat and others.
Lately I've been in a rut not exercising or eating lean. I am ready to get out the rut and get back on track so.....here goes!

Hi everyone! I joined this team because I do workout at home and I need some motivation to keep going. I've been Sparking for a couple years, got serious with it last October when I had a health scare. I've lost over 30 lbs and am currently almost 10 pounds below my ultimate goal weight. I do not want to lose any more weight but I will be 60 in a few weeks. I want to keep working out to stay healthy, keep my bones and brain strong and keep my weight at least at goal. I have a gym right across the street from my office but I've tried 2xs unsuccessfully to participate. I am self employed with a demanding DH so it's just best I do my exercise at home. I walk and use my Wii Fit, I love Coach Nicole and use her videos regularly. I say Coach Nicole ROCKS! Keep up the Spark!

It's all about doing something rather than nothing.

Hi everyone! My name is Janine. I work out at home because it is free. Currently I swim in our pool which is something I love. In the fall I enjoy walking, bike riding, using Wiifit, and dancing to a computer program called "Dance Praise." I also have really enjoyed the Spark videos. I am working towards getting a handheld GPS so that I can geocache this fall/winter/spring. I am so grateful for this website. It is an answer to my prayers. Together, emoticon

Hello All!

I'm new to the team and I just celebrated my first month on SP. So far, just by tracking my food intake and becoming AWARE emoticon and making a few cut backs...and adding a little exercise, I have lost 5 lbs (that I am hoping wasn't just water weight.)

Anyway, I am ready to get SERIOUS about losing this weight, being healthy and SUPERFIT! for the rest of my life!

I am finding my workout rhythm and slowly getting into my groove. As of right now, I really enjoy the 10 minute cardio kick boxing workout by SP's Coach Nicole. I use that as my warm up before I do my strength training (30 mins) and also before and sometimes after I do Walk Away The Pounds (2 miles in 30 mins) so altogether...my workout rhythm is turning out to be around 40-55 minutes approx. and I have yet to do that 3-5 days a week. It's been kind of sporadic with no real rhyme or reason.

My idea is to master these 2 workouts until I know them by memory and once they become too easy I'll move on to some videos that are more challenging. Eventually I want a female body builders body right before it begins to look masculine...before the veins pop and the voice drops.

I am open to any and all work out suggestions especially having anything to do with kick boxing and weight lifting to gain muscle and burn the FAT! Preferably ones on you tube since they're um...FREE!

Oh yeah! I almost forgot. As far as my strength training. I am just using 1-3, and 8 lb dumb bells on a stability ball for right now. I use my body weight (since there is enough of it) for strength training and I don't use any specific dvds for that. I've used some off of SP. I have used some tips from different trainers on you tube. Ms. Olympia Linda Murray, future Mr. Olympia Kai Greene, and some others that I can't name from off of the top of my head.

So if there are any strength training videos that use body weight and light weights that anyone knows of I'll check them out. Thanks!

I joined Spark yesterday.
At home I use EA Sports Active 2 for Wii, Spark videos, and my Workout Trainer app to work out.
I would love some more SparkFriends. I will add anyone back!

Hello. this is my 4th ! sparkversary, and I finally decided to find a team I can really involve myself in beyond huddling and dropping in once in a while-this is it!!! I have always worked out at home, some days not so much as others. So, I'm here to learn some better home exercising habits. You're never too old to change!

Hi new to the team, my name is Kathryn. I live in sunny Ca. I love doing the videos on here and riding my exercise bike. I also take a walk most days for over 10000 steps. i have a neat pocket pedometer that I take with me. I have been using Spark People for almost two years and have lost a little over 33 pounds. I am a resent member to Weight Watchers. I like the freedom of picking what I want to eat and how much I eat. I enjoy being able to now and than have fast food or candy and not think darn I have blown it.

Pacific time,
I am doing the best I can that will have to be enough

Hello All, my name is Sandy, I work at a university and do a great amount of walking throughout the campus during the work day.

I have a Pro Form Elliptical and Treadmill and a Gold's Gym stationary bike, hand weights, and a pool in the backyard. My husband and I just purchased new bikes so we will be taking advantage of the beautiful weather and riding our bikes.

I consistently work out 60 minutes a day at home on my machines, at least 45 minutes walking at work and usually 30 minutes in the pool. Now the weather is warming up I will be in the pool more often. It is an above ground pool but I do a lot of running and water aerobics in the pool. I am looking forward to reading other posts and what others do at home to lose weight. Sandy

Hello I am a 50 yr old woman with COPD and Severe seasonal allergies , so breathing can some times be a challenge, I have free weights, a treadmill, exercise ball, and zumba and leslie sansone videos, pluse several other work out videos i use at home. I don't like going to a gym mainly cause they make me very subconsious and embarrased about my body so I just do what i can to work out at home.

I hope to become a valuable member of this team and make a lot of new friends.

have a great day everyone.

HI everyone!! I'm back on sparkpeople after a pregnancy, birth, and making it through babies first year!! I LOVE sparkpeople and did so well before, just looking for some more motivational friends & teams as I start my journey. I lost 42 lbs before and kept 30 off for 2 years until baby, I actually exercised the whole time while I was pregnant and was 30 lbs lighter the day I gave birth then today :-( As I can't seem to get to the gym or feel too big to run, I am looking to do all my exercise at home. I loved doing biggest loser cardio max while pregnant and want to do that again. I just can't seem to find motivation this time. Seems like a great team, look forward to interacting with you all!
