Hi ppl, I'm new here, just joined! I've been doing tae bo
for about two months now and I like it. I was just wondering
where I can find some inspiration to keep going! I practice
it two hours a day, and I'm getting a little bored.
Erm, that's it for now I guess, I would really appreciate some comments from anyone with any inspirational quotes or something! Love ya!

Looking for a new fitness program? How about trying the Presidential Fitness Challenge. This challenge comes in three varieties:

1. The Active Lifestyle Program - For those of you who aren't active on a daily basis yet, this is a great way to begin. The rules are basically to get a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week, for a total of 6 weeks.

2. The Presidential Champions Program - If you're already active and want a new challenge, this program is for you. Your goal is to see how many points you can earn by staying active. Points are based on the amount of energy each activity burns. So the more active you are, the more points you'll get. When you reach 20,000 points, you'll earn a Bronze award. Then you can continue on in the Presidential Champions program for a Silver or Gold award.

3. The Advanced Performance Presidential Champions Program - This is basically the same system as the Presidential Champions Program, except that the award goals are higher. For instance, you need to get 40,000 points to earn a Bronze award.

The Presidential Champions Fitness Program Website (where you can log your progress and also order your awards when you've reached your goal)

Also, if you want, come join the LJ pres_challenge community to chat with others who are challenging themselves with this program.

Just to let you all know... [20 Jul 2005|07:17pm]

Hello to all. My name is Jackie and I'm 20 years old. I've just recently gotten into TaeBo and I love it. To make a long story short, I just created another community taebo_bootcamp for all of us TaeBo lovers only! Especially whoever has tried the BootCamp series, which are amazing! Very much like this community for all to share stories and experiences. I am very interested in seeing the progress of other people in using Billy's workouts and how successful it has been. Also, I'm not trying to promote in a way of being rude, but I figure that since this is also a TaeBo community that the other might also be a nice addition to this one. Besides, I'm the only member right now :-P Up to you guys! Take Care!

I did it! [10 May 2005|11:32am]

[ mood | jubilant ]

it was a struggle, but today I finally finished all 55 minutes of the advanced tae-bo tape from 1998! I've been slowly working my way through it since november, and it feels GREAT to know what the end is like after such hard work. YES.

this community seems sort of dead, but I just wanted to introduce myself...

my name is katie, and I've been dabbling in tae-bo since I bought the video set in 1998. I picked it up again about a year ago after a lapse in working out for a long time, and of course it has helped me get back into shape. I had never tried the "advanced" tape before this past fall, and its still kicking my ass.. I can get through about 20 minutes of it then I switch to something else. its a new goal though, to make it through it a bit longer. after all, I never thought I'd get the "basic" tape down when I first started, and now it seems like a breeze!

anyhow, hello. :)

Hi, all!  I'm sure I'm a novice compared to most of you -- I recently started using a Billy Blanks Tae Bo DVD, and I love it.  Has anyone else worked out with his stuff before, and is it comparatively good?  Thanks!

Hey ya'll! I used to do tae bo about once a week a few moths ago. Then, Over the summer i sorta faded out, and this afternoon I started again! :-)
Anyway, I am thinking on doing taebo every day. Is this better than every other day. Also, how soon did ya'll see your stomach becomed toned. That's really the area I want to tone. And if anyone has any suggestions on how to do that I'd apprecciate it!

I'm new :) I'm an 18/f from Canada and I've been doing Tae Bo for about 1 week now. I'm really excited because I'm already seeing changes in my body. My arms and stomach are more toned. I bought the Tae Bo Flex tape which is so awesome. I'm planning on getting the Tae Bo Cardio workout as well.

Hi, my name is Anna and I have been doing Tae Bo every single day (with the exception of days where I have been ill, and then a few here and there) since I was 12 years old. I am now almost 16. I recently went on a trip to NY, and, like I do on all my trips, brought my Tae Bo tape with me. I was disappointed (although, not surprised) to see that the hotel room provided you with a tv, but no VCR. Luckily, I had done the tape enough that I had it memorized and I did it every evening around 9:30 for an hour after we came in from the city. I have the Tae Bo advanced tape and the Tae Bo 2 Advanced 1 and 2 tapes and I vary my usage of each of them. Tae Bo is a fun workout I can stick to (although, I always set the tape on mute and blast loud music instead of listening to Billy's instructions) and I feel like I benefit from doing.

Hey, I'm Steph. I just thought I would kind of introduce myself, so that if I comment or something you'll have an idea of who I am.

So, alright. I'm 13. I know, that bothers a lot of people. But I'm really much more mature than the majority of cats my age. Possibly because I've been casted aside for always being kind of heavy, and only truting in people who are much older than me, and don't have such scanning eyes. I weigh in somewhere around 160-170. I'm very introvertish unless I know you well.

I dont have a goal weight. I dont have anything like that. I just want to be able to go look at myself and be comfortable with what I see. Or go into a dressing room and not have to come out to go get a bigger size, or feel like I'm going to cry. It may be vain, but it's for my own sanity.

Feel free to add me, I'll add you back.

God Bless

Heyz I just stumbled across this community. Don't tell me that this community only gets fun and exciting in the summer when everyone wants to get in shape. I barely started doing tae bo this weekend, I need support to make it all the way through! So turn on your VCRs, pop in that tae bo tape and let's help each other out here!

newbie. [06 Mar 2004|01:42pm]

hi everyone- just saw that there was a tae-bo community, so i thought i'd join... my name is tamara and i'm a 20/f (soon to be 21 on monday ;D) and have been using tae-bo to lose weight. i've lost about 20 lbs. with tae-bo and with the atkins diet. i'm currently at 205, so i've recently started doing the advanced tape and the 8 minute workout. (the advanced is still pretty tough though, so some days i can only handle the basic tape :D)

anyway, just thought i'd introduce myself and i'm glad to see a community dedicated to tae-bo! thanks.

Hi everyone,
my name is vicki nicole (www.vickinicole.com)
I'm a single black female living in Boston, MA
I turned 30 years old on May 30
I currently weigh 240 lbs. which is the highest I've ever weighed, my goal is to weigh around 140 - 150 or atleast be able to fit all my clothes.
I lose weight every year then gain it back whenever large changes occur in my life. Last year I was down to 190 then I moved to a new apartment, worked 2 jobs which significantly reduced the amount of exercise time I had. I used that as an excuse to get off track and start eating majorly fattening foods.
Then I quit one job and the job I have now is great, but it allows me lots of free time to lie in bed and eat pint's of Ben&Jerry's ice-cream while reading magazines.
In the past 5 months I've gained 40 pounds.

About 2 months ago I started going to group therapy and taking a Rx antidepresant (Prozac). This has helped immensely but now I find myself facing the challenge of putting the pieces of my life that I destroyed back together including my relationships and my physical and mental health.

I am extremely educated on fitness and nutrition, suprisingly considering how overweight I am and how poorly I eat.
I have read all sorts of books etc.. on diet and exercise. I subscribe to 4 fitness magazines (Shape, Fitness, Oxygen and Muscle and Fitness Women). I haven't read my fitness magazines in over a year though so I have stacks and stacks of them totalling abotu 100 magazines. I just started reading them today though which is what motivated me to look for weight loss support groups.

I have the Body FOr Life book and journal but don't haven't begun using either.
In the past I've lost weight by creating healthy menus for myself and exercising daily doing both cardio and weight training. I can't afford a gym membership anymore but I have found success in the past using workout tapes particularly the Cindy Crawford workout and Tae-Bo

I have asthma and one of my goals is to one day be able to run a mile. I curretnly have very weak lungs and have difficulty walking more than 5 blocks.

Since I've gained this much weight my breast size has gone up to a 42F and I have extreme lower back pain that I've never had before.

I am very concerned about getting diabetes because of the amount of sugar I eat. I crave sugar and when I don't eat it for awhile I get bad headaches.

Today I ate:

2 bowls of choco-marshmellow cereal
2 peanut butter and honey sandwhiches
1/2 bowl of lasagna
a pear
a large bag of Cool Ranch doritos
2 large rice krispie treat
a snickers
1/2 gallon of water
1 cup cranberry juice

I know this is not healthy but I find it convenient. I don't enjoy cooking and I believe my largest problem concerning fitness is laziness and lack of motivation. I look forward to recieving information on quick-low fat meals and menus. I don't eat pork and I need to limit dairy since I'm lacto-intolerant (I've been gaseous for months because of all the milk and ice-cream I've been eating)

I hope by joining several online fitness groups I will have the interaction needed and hopefully also gain motivation to get up out of bed and cook a healthy meal and exercise.

I'm glad to be here,

*cross posted*
