What exercise are you doing these days? How will you take your Vitamin E this weekend?

"E" Is for EXERCISE :)

I will try to jog with Zsa Zsa my dog at least one day (broke ankle this summer, it's better but need to go slow...) and I've been pushing myself to do something new - YOGA. I have a DVD. Not easy for a stiff middle-aged woman but I'm determined to get looser :) Tomorrow when I visit my mom in her nursing home we will do 30 min of "Sit and be Fit" (She is wheelchair-bound)

What exercise are you into?

It's so good for us:

Have a great weekend !

PS If anyone has a good yoga DVD or online link recommendation for beginners, pls let me know- the one I have is a little too advanced for me )

yeah it was much more than that by the time we got home last weekend he done 30,000 and that was hillwalking.getting him hooked on big walks young so he just kinda expects to do it regular and me and the dog love it.

That is fantastic!! You guys must be sore :)

I will go over to the gym in a little while.

HUGE inspiration to me THANK YOU!! (I let my gym membership lapse in June...)

Great post - thanks!

Hey, Calm-Mama. I try to walk 1 to 2 miles everyday. I need lots of encouragement myself, especially when it's cloudy or cold. I'm impressed with you and those who responded. I'm gonna try and do better from now on!!

I'm 57 and so I find it hard some days, too. But, I'll think of you and your inspiration and I'll push on. Have a blessed day, my friend.

NICE! TRX is HARD I tried it a few times at a friends' house and I was too uncoordnated for it ha ha.. Been trying to do more weights, definitely need good music pumping me up for weights:) Thx for inspiring me!!

Hi Calm_mama,

If you still need a tip for yoga, I really enjoyed this series on Amazon prime: Couch To Confident 14 Day Yoga Challenge. Remember you can basically set your own difficulty level for almost all yoga poses! I get really tense when I'm anxious, so yoga works great for me.
