Hi Everyone,

I thought I would start a new exercise thread for the month of May.

This will really help us in our weight loss program because exercise goes hand in hand ... the better we exercise the more we stay on our program.

So come on guys what are you waiting for? Post with us and let us know how you are doing with your exercise program.

I have been walking some, but intend to do more. Those that know me well know that I am not a person to just go out and walk or do exercise ... but I am changing my ways! Usually, Sharon is the one who starts the exercise threads ... thought I would beat her to the punch this time!

So, come on! Join me please!

Love, CJ

Hey CJ,
Thanks for starting the new exercise thread. I had been meaning to but you just beat me to the punch, like you said you little BRAT! LOL

Anyways I am finally getting back to where I want to be with my exercise program. I went to the gym yesterday and did it all. The treadmill than the machines and the hand weights too. Than Scarlett a really cute young girl that works at Ladies Only has starting teaching aerobics so bugged me to join in so I did and man that was another hour doing that. So I was ready to fall over when I got done with that. So I really feel like I had a great workout yesterday. I will try to take a walk later as well around my neighborhood.

CJ-You are doing really well with your exercise plan too. I can tell all that walking you have been doing has been paying off can't you?

Come on Thinsters post with CJ and mysel and see if it doesn't help to motivate, support and encourage each other.

Talk to you guys later, Sassy Sharon :cool:

Wow lookie here we have Sher-Bear too. That is so great Sherry that you are here with CJ and me. Sorry I haven't posted in a bit, but I am here now and so glad there is the 3 of us posting and hopefully we can pick up even some more exercise people to post with us.

I have been doing really well lately. Been walking quite abit and last night I went to my gym and did all the machines and than jumped in with the aerobics group and did another hour with them. Tired but worth it I think. Than I went to the mall and walked there too.

CJ-You are really a walking fool lately girlfriend. Wow you have been doing great with your walking. I see you have a goal of how much you are walking. That is great. I have a pedometer somewhere but can't find it. But cause I try to mix things up I won't jump in this for now. I probally do 30 miles in a month, if I find my pedometer I will try to keep track. I always try to do different things like walking, free weights, aerobics and even my Tao Bo tapes or some of my other tapes I have downstairs with my treadmill, free weights ect. We have a TV-VCR down there and I want to try to get back and do that at least once a week, some kind of exercise tape. Congrats CJ for all you have been walking. It really makes a difference in your weight doesn't it? That 10 lb ribbon will be yours really soon. :D

Sherry-Wow you are doing so great too Sher-Bear between the walking the way you have been doing and all the bowling you have done. YOU ARE DOING WONDERFUL! You and CJ are BOTH gonna make your 30 mile mark for May!

Well guys let's keep it all up!

Love ya, Sassy Sharon :cool:

CJ......Did ya walk today? Did ya get that 10 lb. ribbon?? I missed your walking post tonight! :)

Sharon....So glad you're with us!! Let's try and get all the others to "move their BODS!" :lol: Yes....I use a pedometer too! I really have to watch how I put it on the top of my shorts though...If it gets caught under a "roll of fat" it doesn't work!!! hehe!!
Good job on the gym work-out & the walking!! You go girl!!! :D

Love ya'll...

Having my morning cup of coffee and my WW breakfast bar and then I am off to my girlfriends house and we are going walking in her neighborhood!

Sharon: hey girlfriend - glad to see you here too, altho I would be most surprised to not see you here! Yes, I guess I have turned into a walking fool ... feels good. I don't walk fast, just steady.

Sherry: I didn't walk yesterday - I papered the shower walls in the bathroom instead! I have a pedometer too, I am pretty sure it is pretty accurate. $9.95 at KMarts compared to $25.00 at WW!

I didn't get my ribbon yesterday (boo hoo, whine whine) I maintained. Oh well, next week!

I'll be back later to post my miles for today.... I may have to walk between the raindrops tho. LOL

Later....
Love, CJ

Hi guys.
Are we all ready for Mothers Day? I don't know what we are doing. Hopefully it will not involve eating, well not in a big way anyways. :LOL:

I have still been exercising good and have either been going to the gym, walking or riding my bike around till I am all worn out. HA HA

CJ-Don't worry you will get that 10 lb ribbon yet. At least you did not have a gain and that is the important thing. Keep on walking girl! Hey that is pretty good walking to the Hostess Outlet and all those bags were just like doing weight training. LOL Hey if I were there I would be carrying lots of bags too. Well maybe the light stuff, but maybe some of the regular stuff too-You know for the kids right? HA HA RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sherry-I see both you and I posted to get some of the other Thinsters over here. I sure hope we get lots more cause the more the merrier I always say. You don't have rolls of fat Sher-Bear cause it is coming off big time for you. I just know it.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO YOU BOTH

Talk at your ladies later, love ya, Sassy Sharon :wave:

Hey there Sherry and CJ,
Way to go with all your walking. You will soon be at your 30 lb goal I'll bet if you keep this pace up. :cool:

I went to the gym today after I went to my Weight Watchers meeting (by the way lost 2.6 lbs, and 2.8 lbs last week, so this is about all the weight I put on from seeing daughter in Florida and going to Michigan-Yahoo!). Anyway had a great workout with all the weights and machines. But before that I went to the mall and 2 miles so I am on my way as well and feeling fit.

Happy to report I am now down 31 pounds only 11 more till I will get my 42 lbs back that I had gained this last year, than lookout here I come to lose the rest of it.

YES YES WE CAN DO THIS GIRLS! WHOO HOO!

Love ya, Sharon :love:

Hi guys, just a few minutes I am heading to the gym for a workout. Might as well keep it up on the weekends when I can. It will help me come Monday and my WW class.

I have been doing well and went quite a bit this week and have been walking in between as well.

Sherry-Good job still on your walking. Keep up the good work.

Just popping in to say that I have been doing pretty well on my exercise. I have been to the gym quite a bit this past week and last. I even walked alot, went to Mill Race park one day and walked along the riverwalk they have there. That was really pleasant. I even saw a mother duck with 11 fuzzy babies swimming beside her. It was such a cute sight!

You have been both doing really well in walking CJ and Sherry. And CJ I see that you have added bikeriding as well. I love to take my bike out too for a change of pace from walking. Keep it up both of you!

Well don't know if I will get to the gym this week cause of all the company I am expecting and just been busy busy getting things done around the house for the guests. But I sure am moving around here so that counts as exercise in my book.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY

Love ya, Sharon :cool:
