  1. So today DH and are are both sore! Maybe we shouldn't have been so ambitious and done a 2 hour hike in the hills when we are so out of shape. It was such a nice day- Sunny and in the low 60's - perfect hiking weather.
  2. New year, new attempt at getting in shape and losing a few pounds. I am completely out of shape and DH have each gained 10- 20 pounds since March. Goal 1: Exercise every day- So far off to a good start. Rode Peloton Fri and Sat. Tried Peloton Pilates class Friday (my abs are still sore today). Went with DH on a 2 hour hike. It’s been a while since we went on a hike so it was nice to get motivated enough to go. Goal 2: lose weight - DH and trying intermittent fasting.
  3. I forgot to add if anyone is about to buy a Peloton, ask me or another board member for referral code (I got mine from a fellow boardie) and you get $100 off accessories and the person referring gets $100 credit at the Peloton store.
  4. Yes! That was my post! I ended up ordering the Peloton on October 30 and ended up getting it on Nov. 17th. I ordered the original not the bike+. When I ordered it was said it would take 8-10 weeks to deliver so I was pleasantly surprised how fast it came. I am really glad I bought it because DH and I have both are regularly using it. I rode every day the first three weeks and now am riding 4-5 days a week and DH is riding 3-4 times. I was hoping my 11 and 14 year old sons would ride but after the first week they both lost interest. So far I have just taken cycling classes but I am hop
  5. My son watched a video about the google science fair winner from last year who investigated a method of removing microplastics from water using ferrofluids and a magnet. The extraction of microplastics from water using ferro-fluids - YouTube How hard do you think it would be to replicate this? And of course, how much would the supplies be and would they be easy to get, any safety issues, etc.?
  6. So far we all enjoyed it. I took a 20 minute beginner class, my husband did a ride set to music from the 90's, and my 11 year old took a scenic ride through a national park in Taiwan for 20 minutes. My 13 year old just hurt his Achilles or would have ridden as well. He set up his profile and is looking forward to riding soon.
  7. I am happy to report that my Peloton arrived today and so far my husband, son, and I have all taken a ride on it. I ordered it on 10/30 so it only took 2 1/2 weeks to arrive. When I ordered it said it could take 8 to 10 weeks. Not sure why mine came so quickly.
  8. I spent years going to different dermatologists from age 12 to 27. My parents first spent a significant amount of money and then I did treating my acne. Finally I went to a dermatologist who would prescribe Accutane. That dermatologist wondered why I waited so long. Cynically, since my acne was completely cured, I think some dermatologists would rather not lose patients and will keep prescribing lower level treatments. I really regret having to wait so long. I think having acne really affected my mood and confidence. I really wish I had taken it as a teenager. I will not hesitate to find a der
  9. I bought a pair of icebreaker wool leggings (they look like long underwear) three or four years ago that I wear in winter in So. Cal (so admittedly not that often) under a long T-shirt, sweatshirt, or nightgown in the early mornings/ evenings at home when it is cold. They are so incredibly comfortable and do not itch. I bought them in May or June for only $25 (was $89). Every winter I go on the icebreaker website to buy another pair but everything is so expensive. If you buy in the late spring or early summer they have really good sales. I just looked again right now and am debating whether to
  10. What algebra curriculum are they using? It makes a big difference if the are using a program like CPM or MVP, which uses a discovery method where the steps aren't explicitly explained. If you miss how to do the problems or don't quite understand what you are trying to discover it is really hard to go back and figure it out.
  11. Hmm. I just ordered the bike and was sent an automated reply to schedule delivery. The first date said Nov. 17 so I took it, but I am skeptical it really will come that day. Regardless my husband will be home that day so if they don't deliver it won't be a problem. Perhaps because I ordered the older model it will be delivered sooner? Maybe it really will get delivered but I am not counting on it. As long as it it comes by the beginning of January I will be happy.
  12. Thanks for the warning. I researched and found that there is a long backlog. I just purchased the bike and before purchasing there is a huge warning that the original bikes are taking 5 to 10 weeks or more for delivery while the new version is backlogged 12 weeks or more. I am not planning for it arrive until January but it will be motivation for the new year. I will try to remember to update this post when I get the bike to post how long it took for delivery.
  13. Thanks for the feedback. I think we are going to go ahead and buy the Peloton bike. We have all gained weight during Covid and are now out of shape. We started off walking everyday in March and April and were walking several miles every day. Then somehow that slowed down and stopped and really need something to get us all motivated. We are saving so much money by not paying for any sports or activities for our kids or gym membership for the family.
  14. I am thinking of buying the peloton bike. My husband and I both interested in buying it. My 11 and 13 year old boys say they would like to try it as well. If all of us end up using it then it will be worth the price. Anyone here have one that the whole family uses? Do you think it is worth it? Anyone with kids who also use the bike?
