So I am not looking to lose weight or anything, but I thought I might join you ladies anyways because I desperately want to be in good health and shape! I need to do cardio for my heart health, and I could use some toning. I don't want to be skinny fat!

I did 30 minutes of Pilates today, and plan to do the elliptical for 25 minutes.

Weightlifting with the trainer today. It still feels weird to type because my chest feels shaky and it makes my arms shaky.

While you're not trying to lose weight, the weight loss support thread might be fun too. It's evolved into a support thread doe all sorts of individual diet and fitness goals.

While I did do yoga 6 days last week, so far this week I did it zero days.

But here's an article about how to love exercise! Which is probably the closest I'll get to doing exercise today.

Great article, wild~hair!

My goal is 10 - 15 minutes of free weights each a.m. (alternating upper body with lower/abs) and then either yoga or tennis or walking. Since the free weights take such a minimum amount of time, they've become *almost* automatic. Not quite as auto as brushing my teeth, but I'm getting there. Right now I have a yoga lesson and a tennis lesson each week. Wish I could afford more - I do better with scheduled appointments....

Yeah, great article wild~hair! I'm glad to know that I'm already employing some of the strategies, but seeing these ideas in print is going to help a lot.

I figured something out. I'm dating a new guy, so I've dropped a few pounds because I have a suppressed appetite. I always go through this in a new relationship, but then after the new-ness wears off, my appetite returns, usually within a month or so.

So there goes one reason to exercise: vanity over my weight/figure.

I know it's not good for weight/figure in the long haul, but having dropped the weight, plus my body is in pretty good shape from the exercise I was doing all means that now I'm just coasting.

And this new guy is really great, which is making me very happy. So there goes another reason to exercise: for the mood boost.

No wonder I'm not exercising!

But I did tonight. 30 minutes of yoga. And now? I'm starving! Still pretty happy though.

Saw the trainer today and did legs, shoulders, and a little abs. Rear delt work is pretty challenging. I'm wondering if I ever use those muscles IRL.

Lower body weights and ab work. But I ate too much... I really wish I were allergic to chocolate.

So, I met last month's goal. My gym membership costs $22/month, so to keep myself motivated I told myself I must go to the gym at least 22 times a month. For the month of February (my 1st full month), I indeed went to the gym 22 times. Yup, pretty proud of myself.

I went to the gym today as well; one day down for the month of March, 21 more visits to go.

At this rate I should definitely loose these pesky love handles!
