If you don't work out, why? are you planning on adding physical activity to your daily routine in the near future?
What do you guys think of having a physical activity challenge here on Blended Families? Maybe we could try to be each others' cheerleaders & help each of us do something for ourselves for 30 min. a day, even if it's at a slow pace, but just something new to your day, something just for you.
Who here works out? If so, what do you? - I go to the gym and my SO and I are taking martial arts classes together
How many times per week? - gym 2-3 (try to) martial arts, 2 days a week
How do you think working out fits into your life? - it keeps me balanced, and is a GREAT stress reliever

Even walking around your block for 30 minutes will improve your cardiovascular health, and in the end you will have MORE energy!
Any ideas? WDYT? if you have stairs, use them like a step class, stretching is SOOOOO important, and something you can do while sitting in front of the tv. Do a food challenge, keep track of EVERYTHING you eat for a week, come back, and compare, trade ideas off of each other, swap recipes... just some ideas
I'm not doing anything at all & I really need to be. We have exercise equipment & DH is going to get a place in the garage set up for us to work out.
I think that's a great idea. I'm on this "my diet" thing on Facebook & had lost a few pounds but haven't done it for a few weeks. You can track your diet (if you want) and your activity. It estimates how long it will take you to lose to your goal (if you are dieting). I think you can use the application outside of Facebook. You can also have buddies where you can see what the other people are doing & cheer them on. Don't have any buddies on there though.
I did really well this summer being home with the kids. I've lost 12 lbs and all my pants are falling off of me. I didn't excercise at a gym or anything just walked a lot - took the kids to the zoo etc. I felt really good. I'm worried now that it's too cold for me to walk outside (I have a disease).
I'd love to work out but am struggling to find the time. My kids & I are still adjusting to me being a SAHM. We've never done this before. So my 3 year old has been very, very clingy. I need to get him in some activities so he's not bored.
