You've been doing so good! Don't give up! Even walking is worth giving yourself credit for!

Thank you Dragon. I appreciate your support. I've been having trouble getting motivated lately, but I just finished a 2 mile walk with Leslie Sansone. Broke a small sweat, but nothing major. Feels good to be moving again though, even if just for 30 minutes.

Just finished a 3 mile walk with Leslie Sansone, that included three 2 minute-long bursts of jogging. Definitely got a good sweat going, and feel good.

Just completed a 2 mile walk with Leslie Sansone, as well as a 10 minute Fitnessblender workout for the lower body. My legs feel like jelly after just 10 minutes! So about 40 minutes total for exercise today.

Today has been a rough day for me, and while I'm still not feeling "normal", the exercise certainly helped to boost my energy and mood a bit.

My legs were so sore for a couple days that I didn't do much exercise. Wowza, what a workout that was. :P

Just finished a 3 mile walk with Leslie Sansone w/ the three 2 minute long cardio boosts. I decided to change from light jogging to high knees and really worked up a sweat! I honestly felt like stopping part way through but managed to hang in there. Feels good to exercise.

Just finished a FitnessBlender workout for the upper body and abs, my arms feel like toast! Guess that's a good thing though. I did not feel motivated to work out AT ALL but pushed myself and glad I did.

Today I did 45 minutes of walking (walking to an appointment and back home).

Later in the day I did a 2 mile walking video and a 15 minute long FitnessBlender pilates workout.

I'd like to join in. I started walking to college recently when the weather is nice. I took the bus today because it was freezing and windy but I try to walk as often as I can. I recently got a fitbit which monitors my steps I take. One fairly active days I can get 10,000 steps pretty easily. I can do more than that though, much more. I need to push myself a bit. Trying to eat healthier too.

Hoping the weather warms up sometime soon, it's ridiculous here in NY. It's almost April and there's still ice on the ground from the huge snowstorm last week.

I am gonna try to go to the gym (ymca) on Saturday and walk on the treadmill and use their biking machines.

I haven't been taking walks just to take walks lately though which I should. I only leave the house when I'm going somewhere. Maybe I'll start to wander around and explore more downtown when it's nice.

I finally got myself an iPod. That is very helpful for working out.

Thanks for posting, and well done on walking 10k steps on your active days, that is awesome! I can't wait until the weather warms up more so I can take walks outside for fun.

Yesterday I did an intense (for me) cardio workout from FitnessBlender. I had to modify quite a few moves and was still a pool of sweat at the end.

Today I walked over an hour total, and actually got over 10k steps according to my phone which is a first. Hooray!

Just finished a quick lower body routine (the video is 24 minutes long but without the warm up and cool down, it was about 15 minutes). Legs feel nice and sore.
