I am shaking!

Thanks, Cathe!

Everything can be offered up as a sacrifice. All of this. It can, it will, in the long run benefit not only me, but my family as well. It's a worth-while sacrifice no matter how long it takes. I must look for His glory in all of this.

It's almost Christmas! Yay! My favorite holiday! :)

Does anyone know of a Christmas exercise DVD/Videos?

Just curious.

Chris,

I forgot to tell you about Chromebooks! the computer I have. My computer died after 5 years and it was time to get another one. It was a dinosaur. Well, I was short of funds so I got a refurbished 14" Chromebook for a mere $169.00! Can't beat the price and I do love the way it works. The computer is manufactured by HP for Google. They have developed their own operating system. The operating system is Googles's "Chrome". So instead of Windows I'm using Chrome. For storage instead of a hard drive there's Google Drive, For anything I need to create, like letters and such there's lots of free Google apps in the Chrome store.It's really sleek, clean and easy to use. Of course my first choice would have been an Apple, but it serves it's purpose. Anyway, now you know what a Chromebook is!

How's your ankle? It sounds like you may need physical therapy at least after the initial healing is done. I hope you're feeling better.

I had to quit BLC because I had to step up to help another team's captain. I can't even think about another team right now. Being too busy and my ankle are a big part of that.

How is your round going?

Sorry to hear about your ankle. I hope it feels better soon.

Christine - How has BLC been for you? Are you enjoying it? Do you like your team? Do you think you'll do another round? If yes, do you think you'll ask to join the same team or would you want to join another team?

No, I have never tried that team, sounds good though. My really good friend has RA and also my grandfather had it. I hope they have found better ways to treat it now. I haven't seen my doctor yet but I think I may have reinjured an old strain. If it doesn't get better pretty soon I am going to have to see my doctor.

I was wondering tonight if the book I ordered from the library (Windows 10 for dummies) would help me learn how to hook my computer up to the TV... I think that would be so cool. I am not sure what a chromebook is, is it like a kindle?

Hi Chris,

Sorry about your computer problem! Nasty computer problems. They have a habit of slowing the rotation of the earth. Lol

Have you been to the "Chair Exercise Team"? I go there when my mobility is not good. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis.They have lots of ways to teach you how to exercise without hurting yourself on a chair. You would be surprised. I have done aerobic workouts on a chair. It's a friendly team.

I'm trying to get a dvd player to work on my Chromebook. I don't even know if it will, but I hope so. Otherwise I will have to hook it up to my TV. No problem. My old one bit the dust. Wish me luck! :)

You're going to physical therapy?

I had a Leslie Sansone DVD once but her constant chatter and perkiness plus her ongoing sales pitch about her products drove me nuts. I see a lot of people on SP who love her. Am I the only one who finds her annoying?

I surprised myself and bought a new Leslie Sansone DVD today. It has HIIT and it's supposed to have some good music. I hope to try it tomorrow. It's called "Just walk". Anyone already tried it?

I'm stretching and I put ice on it but love the water bottle idea! thanks- for the future I think I need better shoes for step videos- I was doing them barefoot and maybe more yogas and ST tapes. That might help!

I am dealing with a bone spur- well spurs are there and give no trouble sometimes if you have them but become inflamed sometimes and then they hurt so yesterday's walk was cut shirt. I am stretching it out.
If it warms up enough I will take the bike out

Glad you unearthed the chat sticky! Great idea. As I suggested in my message to you Pixie, why don't you post a blog. It will attract new members! I bet there are tons that don't know we exist and would like to join. We just have to find them. If the only reason you're leaving is the forum is too slow, please reconsider. Maybe you can revive it with some creative ideas. How about a challenge where a popular DVD is used or different DVD's and challenges running side by side. Members love challenges! You can give a goodie to the participant that tracks and posts in chat the most steps or miles or whatever.

I got your SparkMail, Pixie and I, too, would be sad to see this team shut down. I'm sorry that you feel you need to take a break but I get it, too. I also co-lead a team for over 1000 members and we, too, only have half a dozen people who post regularly. I don't know what to suggest for increasing participation. I just accept that our team is there for anyone who feels they need additional support and hope that's enough.

Brontemom and I seem to be the only two people who post what we did for exercise today and even I'm behind on that. I'm feeling a trifle bored with my exercise DVDs and we have been having great fall weather so I've been doing a lot of hiking instead of a DVD.

I'm also missing shopping at my favourite US exercise DVD online stores. Our Canadian dollar is just too low right now to make it worthwhile. I did get a couple of DVDs at the Canadian Amazon website in the spring but was disappointed with two of them.

Welcome to the team! I mainly use Strength training DVD's as I no have an exercise bike I use for my cardio. I do try to mix up with I do for strength because I've heard the same thing. Your body adapts to the exercise and so you need to mix it up.

Hi. I'm new to this team. I have used Leslie Sansone Walk away the pounds DVD's. I joined this group to see what other DVD's Spark People members are using. I'm having trouble loosing weight and I have been told part of my problem is the medication I'm on. I read somewhere that if you don't change the exercises you do now and then your body gets used to the same old thing and stops responding.

I am back here and catching up. I was not doing any DVD's but back to them and not so much walking. Being outside is great but I really sweat with the DVD's- more efficient.

I'm hoping to do the best I can this coming week -- it's pretty much all about my Mom and her health issues...but I can make the best of it, and that's what I plan to do.

I am happy I met my lunch buddies today -- I always hate to give up the time, but always feel good to have reconnected with these great ladies. I first met them when we did aerobics together about 30 years ago.

I am surprised that I prefer doing my DVD's- to going outside. I thought once the weather got nice I would walk and bike more. Maybe in a few weeks for now enjoying opening the window and doing my workouts inside.

Wow you did amazing today for your fitness! i have also noticed that you are really dedicated to your spinning too!

I have been falling down on the job for the strength challenge... I need to get back too it! Lord knows I need it! :)

I love to eat at buffets too but I do the same thing! You would think we would know better... LOL. Sounds like you had a great day for the Zoo! I did get a walk in today but boy it was windy here! I am hoping tomorrow is way calmer!

Same here! Busy spring. We had DH's daughter and grandson drive down today to go to the zoo, then we ate at a Buffet...I went back for a second plate when one would have been perfect. I am stuffed. It was beautiful weather for the zoo, the rain held off till after we got home. I was proud of myself...got a spin ride in AND maxed the ST challenge before we met at the zoo. I KNEW I would never do anything once we got home after a long day.

Wow, Spring is turning out to be a busy time of the year for me! So much to do and so little time it seems.

DH and I went to the grocery store and we got lots of good stuff to eat! We got a three pound bag of tangelo's for 3 bucks! My find of the day was sugar free cherry preserves! I can't always find them and I love cherries of any kind!

! got my goal for last week! 5 outdoor walking miles! I want to build up to 12 miles but the weather isn't always the best so I will just stick to 5 for now. :)

Hope everyone is having a great evening!! (((Hugs)))

I reread my post and had to fix it.... what I meant to say is I hope to plant something this year!

Glad you found the boxwood you needs for your son! It is so nice to do things together like that too!

Oh btw I'm going to join your team that you lead... sounds like something I could def use plus the people seem so nice! I kind of lurked around yesterday for a bit... I may not be as active as I would want to be during the birding season, but still, it sounds like fun! )

thanks Christine! It was a good day -- had to go to two places to get the boxwood shrubs. The locally owned nursery was sold out, but Lowes had a good amount of nice looking ones reasonably priced. They are planted now and look good! DH and I just got home....GREAT way to spend DS's birthday with him. DIL had to work and then attend night class afterwards so we didn't get to see her, but it was nice to have the time with DS just as we did.

In front of the house I've got a lot of caladiums potted up...the pansies I've had all winter are looking great but will die when it starts getting too hot. In the garden we have tomatoes, pattypan squash and will have okra when I plant the seedlings I started. I'm also trying to get honeysuckle on the back fence. We have fig trees and a pomegranate and several different herbs. We've had chard, collards, kale and arugula all winter and they're still growing strong.

This afternoon we're going to go buy DS some boxwood shrubs for his birthday and then help him get them planted in front of his house.
