Well, challenge number 1 with this http://firerescuefitness.com/frf-rapid-fat-loss/ program.  It is assuming the person has access to equipment.  
We do not.  I do own one treadmill and one elliptical.  No gym, no workout equipment at the fire hall, and no access to buildings with stairs.  
SO ... time to be innovative.  
Yoga mats, dumbbells, exercise ball thing, and the stretchy rubber band for resistance, what else do we need to start this program and succeed??

So, today I am starting an "elimination diet" that my doctor recommended.  I have autoimmune disorder issues (they REALLY suck and debilitate me in my life when they act up) and this diet is supposedly going to help show me what foods I have been eating that are actually irritating my insides and assisting in flare-ups.  Oh Joy.
BUT ... as soon as I am feeling a little bit better ... I am so EXCITED ... Jake (my wonderful awesome sexy husband) found this exercise program and ACTUALLY WANTS TO DO IT WITH ME!  I CANT WAIT!!  
We are both fire fighters so I am really looking forward to getting back into physical shape AND building up specific muscles that will help me when we are on a call.  AND ... my best friend/hubby wants to do it with me!  :)
This is the program we just purchased ... anyone ever heard of it?

Day 2 of diet -
I am still alive.
I have not starved to death yet.  
No 'issues' so far today.
No energy yet.  
I am getting impatient to feel better.  
I have a work stretch starting tomorrow  - we'll see how well I can stick with this.

I need advice on what new computer I should get.
The most important issues are that it meet my perceived needs and have good longevity/durability and/or very easy to work with tech support because these darn things are always having one problem or another.
Here are my perceived needs:
1. Number keypad. I just like it and have missed not having one the past how many years with this current laptop.
2. CD/DVD player. I think they are being streamed out and everything going to those flashdrive USB port things - but I have a lot of old pictures burned onto CD's and occasionally I do end up with a new cd for downloading something or another. Oh - it should also have one of those ports to be able to pop in a card from a trail camera or phone or digital camera ....
3. I do use Microsoft Word more than I think I do and occasionally I use Excel and about once a year I use that Powerpoint for a slide show.
4. Obviously, I want speed and lots of memory and wireless and network capabilities.
5. I don't care about touch screen or all this new high tech stuff, but I do recognize that this is the way the world is going and anything else will become obsolete that much quicker. 
6. I don't like putting my personal stuff out on the internet but I DO like keeping my life tidy and organized using my computer/laptop.

I still use 7 but can navigate 8, it's just a little different. Haven't tried 10, and I don't know when that will be available commercially.

A friend shared this with me ... I want to thank you for taking the time to share these thoughts with the world.  You have woken up a very important part of who I am, or at least of who I use to be and have been missing.  I, too, have looked at the world through the eyes of your little "Asher" as a child and then tried to hang on to that as an adult but have faltered.  It's way too easy to get lost in the world today.  Thank you so much for reminding me of a very important part of what makes me who I am.
I don't care that it is negative 27 degrees outside right now ... I'm going to go out and soak up the sight of the snow covered pine trees and breath in the crisp clean air.  :)
