    Thank you for allowing me to join this team. My aunt @micki48 is on here and I wanted to be on the same team! I have just started back on my journey to eat healthier and move more. I am a stay at home mom to three kids, 2 doodles, 2 cats and my 7 chickens! My husband is retired Coast Guard and is now working delivering office supplies. We love it since he is home more!

    He is a great support so I am extremely thankful for that.

    I can’t wait to get to know everyone and have so much support and be held accountable!

    ☺️

    Thanks, Team Trimstone!

    Just checked this out .... If I tried the 10 push-ups, it would probably take MORE than 8 minutes what with recovery inbetween each one. (squats were never an issue for me either as body-weight or with light hand-weights - same with jumping jacks. Very strong legs and lungs. :D Arms on the other hand ..... :s ) LOL.

    I can try the Dumbbell one ... starting with 5 lbs per hand and maybe graduating to 10s (max available at home would be 15)

    I saw @mari_moulin on the linked thread. Anyone else from here going to try it?

    I'm back on spreadsheet duty - it's great having a bit of time on my hands :smiley:

    If you are back on spreadsheet duty .... @Perla4686 wants to change her weigh in day to Wednesdays, and @treebek wants to change hers from Sunday to Saturday. I haven't tried switching them within the list because I am not sure what that might do to formulas.

    I will go back to being First Officer again.

    I think you can make up your own - just pick 3 exercises that give you a bit of a challenge and circle on through for 8 minutes. Those pesky push-ups can go take a hike!

    The day changes are done - all ok for @Perla4686 and @treebek!

    And you are certainly not first officer - co-captains of equal and differing fabulous talents, eh? Coupla Canadians keeping everyone cool...

    This is great! @micki48 has been doing really well, and I'm sure you will too. I'll bet those doodles keep the step count up with you, and the whole rest of the menagerie (including kids!) must keep you hopping. In any case, we are glad to have you, and hope you'll get the help and support to become healthy and strong. Never hesitate to post any questions, share your rants and struggles, and brag about success. Welcome!

    I will be trying some of the strength training for 8 minutes. I may try the kettleball. It’s been awhile since I’ve used it. A lot of my work lately has been more cardio and legs.

    I’m so glad @AmyRobF is doing this. This group is great and I’m glad you are here.

    Thanks for giving her a warm welcome. @jugar

    Let’s do this Amy!! Want to join our step challenge? It’s just our team recording steps here. It has been so motivating for me.

    Speaking of steps...

    For March, the Step Challenge will only be within this team. More than enough of you find it motivating on an ongoing basis.

    I am posting a list of 1 - 10 ... please put your name beside a number if you want to participate. I am not auto-rolling names over, in case you want to pause for a month and concentrate on something else. @jugar is out of town, and I won't be adding my name this time.

    So if you were on last month's step challenge and want to keep at it, PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME The first thee people have already specifically asked about it.
    1. @Blackbeautysue
    2. @sue_01
    3. @micki48
    4. @Astrue
    5. @leni1us

    If all 10 slots are taken, you can STILL add your name below. There is no cap on the time size anymore.

    Talk It Out Tuesday Need to vent? Something puzzling you? Have a question?

    Let it loose. See what the combined knowledge and varied experiences of Team WaistAways can come up with to support and strategize.

    (Which translates as "respond to others' posts")

    I had heard of Leslie Sansone's Walking Workouts, and maybe even seen a dvd or two in a store from time to time.

    On the weekend, I bought what I THOUGHT was a second-hand digital pedometer at the thrift store (with her branding on it) But on closer inspection, I discovered that this seems to be more like the vehicle for her Digital Downloadable products.

    With warmer weather possibly showing up by the end of NEXT month .... something that gets me burning my calories OUTSIDE for a change would expand my (anticipated) maintenance activity options. And I would respond better to audio-guided walking and music at a suitably brisk pace better in terms of frequency and actually getting out and DOING it than "just ... briskly(?) ... walking" much the same routes around my house over and over.

    I am not very into personal device type digital-anything content or apps (don't even own a "dumbphone" personal cell) and I have no current experience with any of Leslie Sansone's programs.

    This appears to have come pre-loaded with:
    • energy boosting walk.amv
    • five-hundred step walk.amv
    • health booster walk.amv

    Is anyone is familiar with her style and material? I saw on her website that there is a raft of other digital downloads available for sale as well.

    Too many people lose heart because their ultimate goal seems too far away and thus is unattainable. But, we actually live in day-tight compartments. Do what needs to be done today for today...tomorrow, you can do it again.

    Great advice found at the opening of the Daily Thread on my reporting accountability challenge.

    I'm curious for those who have lost weight what did you do with your old bigger clothes. Did you let them go or hold on to them in case the weight crept back on?
