    Because I have a disability which gets me to fighting with myself to get up and exercise, I feel so accomplished....I mean, really, REALLY accomplished when I get up and complete a 10 minute segment each time. It's amazing how wonderful exercise makes you feel...makes me feel like I can conquer the world....or at least the next 10 minute segment. AMAZING feeling! - 11/11/2010   3:42:33 PM
    this looks great!!! - 10/13/2010   9:04:31 PM

    That would be AWESOME...I need all the motivation I can get. - 8/21/2009   1:16:49 AM
    No one in my family is the least bit athlethic; we are all very academic. I have to force myself to workout, I admit, as I am almost always sore to some degree or other the next morning. However, when I am in "the zone," I get a natural "high," which, in combination with the overall health benefits, makes it all worth it. Now if I can just get in the habit of getting up and getting started more often! =) - 1/1/2009   7:43:17 AM
    When I work out I like to combine yard work and walking . It makes it much more enjoyable and I get projects accomplshed also. - 12/31/2008   1:53:59 PM

    oops --- I think I'm too late - 12/26/2008   8:08:15 PM
    When I work out, I feel mentally refreshed but physically tired - means I sleep well though and want to do it again! - 12/26/2008   5:52:26 PM

    before I work out I usually don't want to and tell myself just 15 minutes is all I have to do. By the time I hit the 15 minutes I want to go longer since I am getting energized and my aches have disappeared and I am just feeling better in general so it is easier to keep exercising. - 12/26/2008   3:14:09 PM

    So many times I avoid exercise because of pain. Yoga could be the push I need to get over the hurt hurdle. Happy New Year! - 12/26/2008   2:30:13 PM
    I always feel great when I workout, so afterwards, I wonder why I have a hard time being consistent. - 12/26/2008   11:11:51 AM

    When I work out I find that not only do I have energy but notice that all the aches I had before have gone away. Plus my mood elevates and I eat less. I have wanted to try yoga for a long time so this giveaway is awesome! - 12/26/2008   7:35:25 AM
    that looks great. - 12/26/2008   7:24:25 AM

    I've not been very good at working out the past few months, so when I am able to get motivated and fit it into my schedule, I feel a sense of great accomplishment to begin with. Then the workout itself always increases my energy level and makes my heart and body feel so much stronger. - 12/26/2008   6:23:39 AM

    Working out makes me feel more motivated to eat right and gives me more energy. - 12/26/2008   5:55:40 AM

    Seems like the first 6 minutes is a chore, then I can begin to 'get into' it . Of course, getting started is the hardest part! - 12/26/2008   4:50:57 AM

    What a unique way to get into exercise. I would love something like this. I would never be able to afford it on my pay,it seems fun. - 12/26/2008   2:27:21 AM
    I need to commit to a regular exercise program. I am looking for help in setting and reaching that goal. - 12/26/2008   1:34:08 AM
    Working out must be a top priority for me. Everyday, I think of it- and it stays in my head until I do it!
    There are days, I feel like I could run a marathon with all the energy I have inside- But the harder days, or rather, the "normal" days, I push myself, challenging myself through every minute, every 5 minutes, in order to reach my goal. It's incredible to feel the accomplishment and the inner strength I get from keeping myself disciplined. I always feel refreshed and really happy that I pushed myself to work out afterward, no matter how hard it is at the beginning.
    It's not that working out is always easy, or that it is a "pleasure", it's because of the benefits rewarded from effort and hard work. It still remains true that nothing of value or importance is given away freely, it must be earned.

    When I work out, I feel very accomplished and proud of myself. Just starting out, everytime I work out it's one more step toward my goal. Plus, if I work out early in the day, I'm more likely to do better on my intake because I don't want to ruin what I already worked hard for. - 12/26/2008   12:18:45 AM

    I would love to get one of these! how wonderful for the winner! - 12/25/2008   11:28:53 PM

    When I work out I feel a variety of different things - sometimes I feel a sense of emotional release (super on a really irritating day). Sometimes I feel heavy and as though I can't finish (it's with these workouts that I'm usually the most proud of myself for completing). Sometimes it's something I'm checking off my list - but I'm so happy and proud that exercising is back on my list and this time I plan to keep it on my list for the rest of my life!! I also just know that it's helping me be a better, healthier Mommy for my girlies. - 12/25/2008   11:21:24 PM

    My father recently got a Nintendo DS, and I have been really jealous. He just got the cooking program, and it's amazing! - 12/25/2008   10:53:26 PM

    there isn't an 'edit' so I couldn't go back to add my comment about how I feel, but I feel great when I exercise first thing in the morning, strength and cardio. - 12/25/2008   10:18:24 PM

    I have such a hard time getting motivated to exercise and I'm not sure why - I always feel so much better after I do. I get this great feeling of accomplishment and I am so proud of myself - you would think that feeling would motivate me to do it more!!! - 12/25/2008   10:14:55 PM

    I just do simple stretching exercises which leaves me feeling energized. - 12/25/2008   9:59:47 PM
    I feel great after I exercise. I have the problem of actually starting to exercise. The bigger I get the harder it gets and I used to be moderately athletic. Yikes! - 12/25/2008   9:39:57 PM
