I’m running a half marathon in April, and have already signed up and paid.  So I don’t have a choice! 🙂

I bought a few yoga tapes that are still wrapped in plastic 🙁   but I have plans to start on them as soon as school gets back in session.  Fingers crossed for me.

I’m not trying to lose any weight, but I am trying to just be fit. I’m walking a few miles a day, doing pilates, and trying to work out my flexibility to get back to where I was when I was dancing constantly.

Gym 3-5 times a week, with home workouts on the off days (I use bodyweight, kettlebell, and free weights). Keep in mind I’ve been married for six months and don’t need to lose weight, this is just for my own health!

If stress eating is a problem, I’d suggest getting rid of the junk food and replacing it with healthy foods. If you don’t have it, you can’t eat it!

@tksjewelry: I’m in the same boat. I have a lovely DVD collection on my list of things todo, haha. But for real, once I’m back in school with the wellness center so close by and the winter weather nixing nearly any other plans, I hope to crank out a solid 2 months at the gym before the big day! Mostly running my C25K program indoors and then on the elliptical on off days, as well as weight machines, and maybe some group classes if they fit into my course schedule.

P90x 2! I did the first P90x and I was in the best shape ever! I’m thin and petite but it really gives me muscle and gets me toned. I LOVE it!

I run and use an exercise bike. That just helps me maintain. I need to focus on eating habits to actually lose weight, but I love eating and drinking.

@bella0831: All I do is run, but Darling Husband does P90X.  He made me join him the other night for Ken Po (is that what it is called?) and I woke uo more sore than I ever have been in my entire life.  I could hardly walk the next day, and I was sore for about the next 3 days.

@Linz1231: Yes it is intense. I was the same way when I first started it. The legs and back work out killed me the results are worth it. My Fiance and I do it together so we have a lot of fun competing with each other 🙂
