I'm still looking for a walking partner(s) ...

I also wanted to remind everyone to watch for all the outdoor events being held this summer. We have live outdoor music everywhere ... with sunsets on the beach once a week ... 8 great Tuesdays at Liberty Park ... weekly events downtown on Thursdays ... I know there are more so start watching the Showcase to see if there is something for you.

One thing I've found when I go ... I have plenty of opportunity to walk around while I'm there ... and being out in the fresh air keeps my spirits high. I missed almost a whole summer of attending these events because of Knee replacement surgery ... so I'm really looking forward to this summer.

Maybe I'll see some of you there!

So ... does anyone know of any outdoor fitness activities going on in Erie???

I would love to find a walking partner ... especially since the weather is getting nicer. I work 8-5 so it would have to be evenings and/or weekends for now. It might change once school is out ... then my hours will be cut to 6 a day so I might have morning before work, or late afternoon (before supper).

I'm not a power walker ... I just would like to get back to walking.

If anyone is interested let me know ... the more the merrier!

FUTUREMRSBIDDLE ... Yes I was referring to the Hamot Wellness Center. Nautilus is so much closer for me ... half way between work and home so it is so easy. Even in our lousy weather today it was no trouble stopping after work!

JAZZERCISE FOR JACK FUNDRAISER EVENT!!!!

Saturday Feb. 16th at St. George School, from 9am to noon, Jazzercise will be holding a fundraiser for Jack Sundberg, a 3 year old boy who has an inoperable brain tumor. (Sadly, the son of one of my best friends) The only requirement is a $20 donation.

The first hour is a Jazzercise class, which is awesome if you like to dance, (it's aerobics and strength training to great popular music)The second hour is their version of "basic training" and the third hour is stretching and relaxation. Of course, there are breaks inbetween for shopping and raffles.

It should be a great time, and all for a good cause!!

Check out Jack's website www.jacksbattle.com for more info and the necessary form. It will be under events.

My 2 cents ... I've been a member at Curves ... not really my cup of tea emoticon I don't know too many other women that have lost weight there ... I only lost a few pounds over a regular 6 month period ... did shed several inches. I had to stop because of my knees ... after replacements I worked out at the Wellness center ... lost several pounds and toned up. I liked the workout better. emoticon Now I'm at Nautilus ... I love it. emoticon

I love the idea of a group event!

Trish: Do you like Curves? I actually called today before I saw your post to see about joining. I need something quick and close to home. Let me know what you think.

I was just sitting here freezing ... and started thinking spring and warmer Erie temps ... emoticon (to help warm me up). Then I got to thinking how much fun it might be to get together for a group walk at Presque Isle on some warm(er) spring Saturday! emoticon
I'll keep checking back to see if anyone else likes the idea!

CURVES is having a "weight loss study". I really believe that it's promotional gimmick, but for $20 you can join for a month. You have to commit to going 3 x's a week for a half hour for four weeks. If you go to all of the workouts and don't miss one, you get your $20 back. I've only gone four times and have lost 6 pounds without any great effort. I go to the one on Buffalo Road, but I believe that all locations are offering it. Check it out!

It's a small thing to a GIANT! We can do this!

Every year my sister-in-law and a few friends and I team up and do the March of Dimes walk for babies in April... I was wondering if anyone would be interested in walking with us? Maybe we could even reform and rename our team to reflect the Spark Image; let me know what you think and if anyone wants to participate!

Think you can, and you will.
