I do Curves too, licia. Works for me. I don't know your age (and wouldn't dare ask), but the workout you get there is effective for all ages. At my club we have a member who is 79 (I signed her up while I was still working there), and she is doing great. She told me it was a wonderful feeling to be able to pick up her small grandchildren again.

Best of luck to you in your focus on YOU!

Does shoveling snow for two and a half hours count? Actually, I don't mind shoveling snow. In fact, I do the extra work of piling it on the west-side of my Webber Kettle, to block the wind when I grilling or barbecuing something. I also make a snow fort for some little ones we baysit every now and again. It makes them hapy which makes me happy.

Way to go licia! Good for you...I bet after 3 months you will be hooked! I've been either walking for 3 miles or riding my indoor bike every day now since last April. I'm up to 50 minutes on the bike. This morning it was 20 degrees - warm enough to walk! I was excited! It was so nice to be outside early in the morning instead of watching the minutes tick by while on the bike...

Goodweed - snow shoveling definitely counts!!!

What really surprises me is that my body feels so much more alive. I'm not feeling sluggish at all and after only 2 weeks. My clothes are moving around a bit on me so I can tell there are changes, even if the scale shows only 3 lbs.

I worked out yesterday - I usually try every other day - although my abs could reallty use every day - but then I would be doing that instead of doing this, so I will work out tomorrow!

I did a 1 hour class in aquatics. It certainly seems to be helping my arthritis. I'm no longer sore and achy when I get up in the morning. I'm thinking about doing just the aquatics at the gym for a while, along with the Curves thing until my body acclimates to the heavier exercise. The weights and machines seem to be too much with 3 days of water and 3 days of Curves - alternate days. I'm feeling so much more agile. I'm considering it my job - up first thing in the morning, either to the gym or to Curves, whichever is the proper day. I'm not weighing myself either, I will wait til I go back to the doctor - or whoever says I need to weigh, the gym or Curves. I would certainly suggest the water exercises for anyone with joint problems, of course, depending on what your doctor says.
