Hi all! I haven't been to the gym in two weeks - I was ill, and then ill again, and then traveling, and then traveling more, and then ill (aaaaaaaawesome). How about you all? Here's your Monday Catch-Up Post - comment and own up to what you've done (or haven't done)!

Hi, guys! I'm so sorry to be making jennyclarinet do all these posts... My work internet is intermittently blocking LJ. But I haven't forgotten about this comm!

Anyway, this post is just to discuss workout tracking. What do you guys do to remember your workouts? Is posting here enough? Do you have a private journal or a notebook?

I ask because I've recently started tracking my runs on Twitter using the hashtag #healthbloggers! I usually have my phone at the gym, and if not I go home right after, so it's easy to text a summary of my run - and that way I have a public record I can check when I need.

I've also started using it to track my asthma -- I rate the run on a scale of 1-10 in terms of how bad it hurts my lungs. Hopefully this will help me pinpoint what kinds of triggers I'm dealing with!

So anyway, I invite anyone who's on Twitter to use the hashtag with me. And if you have a different way of tracking, let's discuss!

Hello! My name is Nikki, and this is my "happy trail" journal- it's kind of my journal about my personal health/wellness/happiness journey, featuring healthy (or indulgent but too yummy to resist) recipes, pictures & articles & things that make me happy, etc etc..

Anyway, a little about me: I'm almost 21, and I had weight issues from about fourth grade to.. well, does anyone NOT have weight issues after puberty? But I slimmed down and am now generally happy with my figure, but maintenance is important to me! I recently started to cook healthier and stick as much to the ABSDIETPOWER plan as I can with my short self-control fuse, and I work out 4-6 days a week with a combo of running, push ups and sit ups, walking with weights, riding bikes, and other various gym machines during the school year.

I look forward to motivating and being motivated!

Hello everyone, I'm new here. I'm never quite sure what to post when I join a community, but here goes.
I'm a mother of 2 boys. My youngest being 2 and I'm still trying to find ways to get rid of the baby weight. Prior to him, I was a vegetarian and am slowly moving back to that path, but it's not easy since no one else in my family is. I have a hectic schedule and try to work out on a regular basis.
My workout plan as of right now, not counting running around being a toddler:
I try to do at least 100 crunches each day (abs need some serious work)
I walk everywhere, usually at least 30 minutes a day
I've tried a few of the pilates workouts, but recently bought the Yoga Booty Ballet.

Motivation is my biggest challenge so I've been looking for supportive like-minded people.

If anyone here has any suggestions, I'm more than open to them. And, it's nice to meet you all.

I present to you the Healthbloggers' Motivational Shop: http://www.cafepress.com/healthbloggers

I do some non-professional graphics work in my spare time, so I figured we could all use entertaining workout gear. Any suggestions will cheerfully be added to shirts or what have you. I also 100% blame night_is_fallen and first_seventhe (again*) for this.

*yeah, she told me to post this here.

Well, first_seventhe pointed me in this direction, so here I am!  My name is Rhi, and I'm 27-years-old.  I have finally decided that it's time to get off my butt and do something about the fifty to sixty pounds I gained during and after my pregnancy -- yeah, three years later.  LOL CLEARLY, I am super-motivated, you can tell.  ;)
