Thumbs up what are your plans for weight loss this fall and winter?

My family is planning ahead to fall and winter ( boo hoo ) to what we can do to work out. The gym/wellness center center is no longer an option. New games for the Wii. The extension office offers free classes twice a week. I will be joining them!! I can do yoga at home plus I have the pilates reformer and a roman chair. What are your ideas for keeping fit this fall and winter?

Hi girls. I think I need to jump in here. lol. I have gained over 20 pounds since last July. I know part of it is that I haven't had a cigarrette since the "incident". I also know I have to start walking more. I should be walking everyday. If you don't mind, I'd like to join you guys. I need the encouragement. lol

Well for the fall I plan on borrowing my mom's treadmill. Maybe if I set it up in front of the tv????

Well thanks for listening to me ramble.

Laurie, it's so easy for it to pile on, isn't it? Your plan sounds good, make it like an appointment you have to keep. I have to do the same thing for my walking, now that the feet are starting to get used to me being on them.

Hugs,
Lisa

Sense the weather has been cooler in the morning. I am going to start walking before I get ready for work. In the fall I walk with a freind at lunch.

A town thirty miles away has a indoor pool. Need to check on prices. I converted two more gals to water aerobics last night! I got a good workout teaching water aerobics then practicing watsu on three gals.

It's still going to be uber hot & humid here for months - fall means nothing. I will continue at the gym 4 days a week, swim in the evenings and on weekends, mow the lawn on Sundays and then once it does cool off a smidge, I might add a walk on my off-mornings.

Keep up all the hard work everyone. If anyone wants to do a contest to help motivate (if in fact it does...) you know where to find me.

J~

Connie, could you work out a deal with the indoor pool and offer your services one or two days a week? Make a day of it with a morning, afternoon and evening classes? You would be able to expend your customer base in that town and might draw people from your town to their pool.
