I know some of you, like me, exercise to stay (or in cases like me, get) in shape.

What do you do?

I like walking and riding my bicycle.

May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

I would also like to add that I'm also eco-friendly when I exercise. The water bottles I take with me are reused juice and Gatorade bottles.

And those who don't love us
May God turn their hearts,
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

I also walk...it is a time for me to myself (with out the 4 kids) to get my blood pumping and to run through things in my mind. Always have music on and water in hand. Although my doctor says I now need to add something else to my walking program...something I'm not good at he says...I told him...well, that is everything else!!

The last time I got on the scale (which admittedly was a while ago), I weighed 305 lbs. Today, curiosity killed the cat and I got on the scale again. I'm now at 289. I'd like to get down to 250ish. I've stopped eating a lot of junk and guzzling Pepsi. When I want something to drink now, I get myself some water.

biggrin.gif GOOD for you Mike!! It is frightfully hard to peel off pounds the hard way (naturally - no stomach stapling or crazy diets) Keep up with the walking..it is easy, it is free and it really is good exercise! I had thyroid cancer in 2003 and before it was diagnosed I had gradually been gaining weight. Now after 2 surgeries and treatments they have me on meds to get my body doing what it should and supposedly my metabolism is supposed to start working again! (From their lips to God's ear) So, I do understand how hard it is every day. Which is why my doctor told me to add something new. He said..."Amy you have great legs, it shows you walk but your muscles are too used to it, you need to add something new." I've just added some free weights for my upper body and am considering biking...but I am truly not an athletic sort...so finding something else I can do is interesting....

I tried walking when I was in college...I actually gave my shin splints names before it was all over. LOL

Now I do Middle Eastern dancing, American Tribal style. I'd started while still in school, now I'm much more into it, even while pregnant. Low impact, low stress on the joints, and does wonders for flexibility and endurance.

I'm just now getting back into bicycling. When I was a kid, I used to love riding around my neighborhood. I just lost interest in it. It really is good exercise. My legs get a workout riding and my upper body gets a workout taking it off and putting it on the hook in the garage. It's not really that heavy, it's just bulky.

Man, I don't even remember where my bike is. Betcha it's still at my parent's place. We go bicycling when we're at the beach, but that's about it. Used to have a lot of fun with it, though.

Hi everyone,, ha, this is the third time I started this post keep getting interupted. Mike, how wonderful you started riding your bike again.. How many miles are you going? If it were me I probably would just ride mileage doesn't matter.. I am so happy for you and that you are keeping it up.. What a great thread this is...

I do the treadmill and martial arts. I used to do a lot of dance classes but have just stuck with the martial arts. I used to take TaeKwando- now that I am older I take Tai Chi. It is kind of like yoga which I have taken too-but more self-defense style. I start up again in the fall and I am sure it will kill me off..

Thanks for doing this thread will check in---Keep Up The Good Work....

Riding bikes on the beach sounds like fun...wish I had a beach near by...could head over to San Diego...we do have alot of bike paths and such here...I think I might get my little guys to ride with me...problem is, it is just sooo hot even in the evenings still...but at least we would not get sunburned if we went after dinner or some thing...

Sekhmet - what wonderful news - when are you due? It is a good thing to continue your program while pregnant...makes for a healthier you and baby. Will this be your first? Keep us posted on how you are doing....

I'm due right around Thanksgiving. This will actually be my third child...there's going to be about seven years between this one and my youngest daughter. You'll probably hear me griping off and on as things advance. LOL

Yes, this form of dancing has helped considerably. Not only do the movements mimic childbirth, toning and stretching all of the muscles that will come into play during labor, but hopefully it will help make labor that much shorter and easier. Here's hoping.

What do you think of Tai Chi? I used to practice Tae Kwan Do a long time ago, and wante to try martial arts again, but something different.

Bike riding is a great way to get around, and the benefits are amazing I agree

I too would like to learn more about Tai Chi, Rindy!
I've never had the opportunity to try Tae Kwon Do but have learned other styles...and then I had to stop about two and half years ago. When it's possible for me to go again I think I'd like to try kickboxing. For now I do a split routine at the gym, between weights and cardio. I walk everywhere. I tried a few rental video tapes on Pilates(WOW) for the abs...but I haven't maintained it. I miss the Martial Arts but seriously there aren't any clubs in this area at all, the nearest one is a 45 min. drive and I don't have a car.
