Poi/fire...that's interesting. My DH and I are looking into ballroom dancing. We haven't found a place yet. Walking and trampoline will work for now.

You should look into country line dancing. It's way more popular and the people are fun.

Walked for 30 minutes. Only thing is I got some blisters for wearing sandals. We found salsa and merengue dancing so my DH and I will begin after we return from our vacation. Tried pilates before and loved it too.

I still have a lot of favorite yoga exercises that I like.

I know that Pilates has been around for a long time. They tried to resurrected it during the 70's

I thought the recent infomercial was silly because they made it sound like nobody used it in 100 years. Isn't Pilates more for body sculpturing?

Miss Sattie...

How long does it take you to make that trip?

Uncle Bob.... it takes 1 hour. I walk to the park which is roughly 3/4 of a mile and then the park itself has a 1 mile track. I use the walk to and from the park as my warm up and cool down.

Yes, I agree, it is very addictive and I really enjoy the time outside and the people watching!!! LOL!!

Correction.... last nights work out was 5.5... skipped a mile somewhere!!!

Walked with DH for about half hour, did some laps in the pool yesterday and today and played volleyball and flag football with my DH, kids and their friends in the backyard. I'm pooped!

I lost close to 30lbs last year.
I can do my 100 flights of stairs (up and down) in 23min now.
Still doing 'em 5 nights a week at work during my "lunch".

I've been lazy the past week though...

It really came down to the fact that I was going to school and working full-time, and the only take-out I like in the area is Sushi and Subway...
