    Gah, my ex has lost so much weight since we broke up, I want to go on a diet just to spite him.

    Ug, but I love food and hate exercise soooo much.

    You should try making your exercising fun. Don't do the boring "fifty lunges, fifty sit ups, fifty pushups" thing, instead go skating, snowboarding, dancing, something like that. I like fighting and tennis. It really beats tv.

    I have to agree with you and Pip. Food is just sooooo good, but I'm figuring out the balance. I have my own set of rules that I eat by, and it normally means that I never feel like I've deprived myself of that glass of wine or a good bit of cake. Normally I just eat it if I really want it, and I even let myself have as big of a piece as I would like. Trying to tell myself no means I'll binge when I do finally give in. It's actually really cut down on the amount of overall junk that I eat.

    Well i had remembered how much fun i had playing boxing on the Wii and how much i ached in my arms, upper and lower back and torso after 20 minutes of it so i bought a boxing bag to punch at (okay its a blow up one but meh! The wii is hitting thin air!) I also ordered a skipping rope because i loved skipping as a kid! I also ordered this thing that you hold and rotate in your hand as its spins which works you arms. Can do that while watching tv!

    I have the wii fit. I did the yoga while my husband sat behind me and made fun of me as I attempted to keep my balance. I loved in the beginning when I did the set up - it asked me if I fall alot when I walk. The Wii is mean. And good luck with your new fitness contraptions. My fitness contraptions are over in the corner. Unused for the most part. The only I exercise I get from them now is when I move them to run the vacuum. There is a mini-trampoline and big rubber blue ball you're supposed to do sit-ups on or something, an ab roller to assist with those horrid sit-ups again and a medicine ball. I hope you have more motivation than I have.

    I too have that blue rubber ball... i use it as a seat at my desk. (no chair but it does seem to help my posture a bit! )
    I want a wii for the wii fit. think it would be fun. and they have this new game where you can learn dances from popular songs etc which i think would be also fun but i cant afford one at the moment. They are still rediculously expensive here. My brother got one in Australia for $200 dollars when i was there. They were still about €300-400 here which is anywhere between $500-800. madness. I'm waiting for the prices to drop below 200 before buying one.

    Fighting?!?

    The problem for us oldies is the ankles and shoulder aches, back pain, general knakeredness and responsibilities and work and all the little things to do in a day.

    I get around by bike which gives me my only real exercise other than walking the dog. (Good exercise too, but not enough I fear.)

    Fighting? I could pop up town and hang around the bars. Someone's bound to have a pop at me with my face...

    Boxing or martial arts is an awesome workout. I took a boxing class last year and by the end of our little 3 minute fights I was thoroughly exhausted.
    Try rock climbing and bouldering, maybe. It's non-impact, and provides a great full-body workout. A lot of people think it's just the arms, but it also really works your abs and legs too. You can progress from the walls that are basically ladders (i.e., what I'm stuck on) to the crazy ones where you hang upside down on tiny finger holds, so it's a challenge that changes as your abilities increase.
    Plus, it's really fun and you have a great sense of accomplishment once you get to the top.
    Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not.

    Exercise sucks. Well, that's a lie. Exercising in a gym sucks. And since I'm not allowed to run anymore (doc's orders) and I don't ride except during the winter and summer breaks, I've basically lost all muscle tone whatsoever. I count on intense riding in the summer to get me back in shape, but even that tends to put muscle only in certain places, and awkward ones at that haha. I have to say though, horse back riding is good cardio!

    Oh god, Wii fit is addicting. There's one game where you are the lead in a marching band and you have to keep time with your feet and with the nunchucks. It's awesome.
    I'm weary with right-angles, abbreviated daylight,
    Waiting for a winter to be done.
    Why do I still see you in every mirrored window,
    In all that I could never overcome?

    How much does it cost, though? Rock climbing and bouldering, I mean. And what is bouldering? Frankly it sounds like a lot of fun, but my budget is perpetually tight (i.e. I live from paycheck to paycheck )...
