  1. I really need to start taking swimming lessons once I move. I know it is such good exercise and I just really need to learn once and for all!! I am so proud of you, Kimmi, for taking the steps to learn to swim!!
  2. When I first started the program, I ran with a good friend of mine. She was probably about 220 lbs at the time, and was scared to death to start the program. The first day was torture for her. She did NOT want to finish the first minute! I made her keep it up, and finish the first day as it was written. She was so proud of herself for doing that! Long story short, within a couple of months we were both running 20 minutes non-stop! We even signed up for and completed a 5K race that year. It is difficult, but you can do it!! If your knees truely bother you, I would suggest seeing a doctor before starting the program.

    I am a HORRIBLE dancer, lol. So far I have been able to keep up with the Learn & Burn though.

    I just got my TJ yesterday and did the learn and burn DVD. I loved it!!! I really don't feel it in my abs like they say you will (maybe I am doing it wrong??) but I really got in a great cardio workout. The music is fun and it went by really fast.
  5. I have played with it at the mall before. It is fun, but didn't really think you could really get that much of a benefit exercise wise from it. Let us know how it works out for you!

    I ordered this the other day and can't wait to try it!!
  7. Hmmm, I used to go to Curves but never had a problem on the recovery boards. Remember, you don't have to run on the boards. You can do lots of different things. Some people "walk" in place, some people do jumping jacks, some others do "step" type moves. It is really up to you what you do on the recovery boards, as long as you aren't just sitting there. Hope that helps!
  8. Wow, what a huge difference! Keep up the awesome work, buddy!!
  9. Kimmi, You might want to try doing a schedule for the week. Like, say, you will do the dance on Tuesday and Thursday, on Monday and Friday you will do a strength training video or go to your gym and do the circuit. At my old gym, they had like 12 machines that were in the "circuit" that I did about 2 or 3 times a week. Check to see if your gym has something like that. Then maybe on Saturday or Sunday go for a long walk or a run. Just have an actual schedule that you will stick to. That is what I have been trying to do and it seems to help.
  10. According to my leader, it is weekly, and won't change day to day. She said that you have to take what you do for a living, and what you do most often to figure out your activity level. She said if you sit at a desk during your day, you are probably at 0 points.
  11. I don't think you really could. A lot of the moves require the incline. Maybe you have some sort of bench type thing you could use as an incline?
  12. My dad used to make venison stew growing up. He would just throw cut up venison, carrots, potatoes, green beans, corn, anything really into the crockpot with beef broth. Yum!
  13. http://www.tasteyoulove.com/products.asp A link to the products ICBINB has :bcbsalute
  14. ICBINB has a FF spread in a tub which is only 5 calories per serving, and it is Core
  15. I don't believe the juice counts as Core. You can always count the points for the juice though.
  16. swimming is a great way to get some APs. Also, the beach can be a great setting for some yoga practice!
  17. Wow, this was really good! Tasted just like hamburger helper - I love and have missed that stuff!! You could really shake this recipe up and do all sorts of different things with it. Thanks for posting this!
  18. Wow. This was absolutely delicious...a must try!
  19. Bumping! I am going to try this out tonight.
  20. I made this tonight. I had never had quinoa before. Don't know if I liked this too much. I ate it, and it was VERY filling, but I don't think I will make it again. DBF didn't care much for it either.
  21. Thanks, Sarah. Leaving clothes at work sounds like a really good idea.
  22. OH, I am so excited!!! I got my bike last night, it is so pretty Once I get a helmet and stuff this weekend, I should be ready to ride to work next week!
