But I warn people that if they can walk, we will walk. I still have people who tell me how athletic they are and won't walk to less-than-quarter mile (albeit that part of it is verticle) to a restaurant. They don't want to work up a sweat, or give up their 3 1/2 inch heels or whatever.

So, yes, I "worked out" by most peoples' standards. If you came to my house you'd say I didn't workout today, but you also wouldn't want to walk to town and back because you might actually sweat in clothes that were not gym clothes.

Hey, Claire, I know what you mean. I did not "exercise" this week, but I did help get in some more hay, just two of us this time so that means I handle the hay more than if 3 of us work it. Also am hauling water, by hand in 5 gallon buckets, to water individual garden plants. Danced until midnight last night, granted I do not do that very often.

And I have been to Galena, very steep hills there. You set a wonderful example.

Have been biking with DH and kids for 30 minutes for 4 days now. My hubby is motivating us and it's a good feeling to keep moving. We don't feel so lazy anymore.

45 minutes of soccer at lunchtime. Too much fun! Then I mowed some grass when I got home.

Mine is renewed automatically via weekly pmts (as my DH points out to me every time he does the on-line banking thingy) He also likes to remind me that I haven't used the facility in 6 months ... I wonder if it's still there

I quit smoking and gained 20 pounds.
Fair trade off.

So for the last few month I have been faithfully
walking (high speed,with a bit of jogging sometimes)
with my labrador retrievers along the local creek
greenway... Even in the 112 degree heat index!
(Much slower and with water!)

They get to swim, and I have lost a few pounds. Funny,
but I am actually getting to the point where I am looking
forward to the sweat!

I hate having money systematically removed from my account. That's why I always pay for both of my memberships up front.

At 24 Hour Fitness, which I pass three or four of on the way home from work, I paid $700.00 for 3 years, and after the 3 years is up in March of 2008, I pay $50.00 a year for the rest of my natural life.

So, not to be outdone, Hollywood Fitness, which I belong to because they're convenient to my house, which is extremely important at 5:00 A.M., just gave me 3 years for $699.00, and the remainder of my life at $49.00 a year.
