    <p>I'm completely uncoordinated, and also very out of shape. Can anyone recommend a beginner workout DVD for cardio and one for strength training, or possibly one that combines the two? I have tried things like Leslie Sansone's walking DVDs, but I'm looking for other recommendations. Thanks!</p>

    <p>I have about 70 lbs to lose, and would like to try counting calories to do so. So many sample daily menus are not vegetarian or vegan, and I wondered if there were folks out there who are vegetarian, vegan, or who often eat that way, and who can give me an idea of what a typical day looks...

    <p>Mine is to lose 20 pounds over the next 4 months. Seems reasonable, yes? But I have no plan! I posted on another thread about starting a daily yoga prctice but that's more to increase my balance, strength, flexibility and feel good overall. What can I do that I can stick to to drop 5 pounds...

    <p>I really want to push myself to start and stick with a yoga practice that I can manage every morning. Something maybe a half hour or less. Anyone have any recommendations? DVD? Online videos? It would have to be a beginner level as i haven't done yoga in years. </p> <p> </p> <p><img...

    <p>I know 2014 is still close to a month away, but this week begins one year since I made the choice to practice a small amount of yoga daily.  For 5 months I really did do about 20 minutes every day, and then I slacked off but never entirely dropped it.  </p> <p> </p> <p>The fact that is still...

    <p>I'm really out of shape and get really overwhelmed by making big changes, like "I'm gonna start exercising an hour a day!" So I've been trying to incorporate just 10 minutes of sub-moderate exercise into my day to make it a habit.  All summer I did a 10 minute walk after my DD went to bed...

    Does anyone here have the Nike Fuelband?<br><br> I just got one and it's really motivating me to move more at then end of my day if I'm not up to my fuel points goal.<br><br> Would you be willing to be friends with me? None of my IRL friends have a Fuelband.
