Is it bad that I got out of breath scrolling to the bottom of the page?

I keep saying that I want to lose weight and all I do each day is eat. I do go swimming everyday but I really have to eat healthy and stop ordering foods from my market online. The things that I order are definitely not for a person who wants to lose weight.

I bought a treadmill from Sears and the few times I used it were really hard.
One day I fell off and broke my wrist.

I called Sears and told them what had happened and it was in perfect condition. I had a year to pay it off so I didn't owe them any money.

Finally after many phone calls to the head of the department they came and picked up the treadmill and said that they were going to use it as a demo and they were very sorry for what happened to me.

I didn't have to pay for it and that was a great relief to me.

I think we should revive this, particularly through the holidays!

I have exercised nearly every day for the past month or so. I was too sick for four days to go spreading my germs around the gym and/or pool, so I Didn't go on those days, and got snowed in to the house for a couple of days (even then I shovelled snow).

I have no yet exercised today but fully intend on going to the gym later to do some speedwork on the treadmill (if I can get the one that goes to 12mph). The plan is to do 1 minute intervals like this:

1st minute: 6mph
2nd minute: 7mph
3: 6
4: 8
5: 6
6: 9
7: 6
8: 10
9: 6
10: 11
11: 6
12: 12 (that's as fast as the treadmill goes)
13: 6
14: 10
15: 6
16: 8
17: 6
18: 10
19: 6
20: 12

And by then, I should be about ready to die, so it won't matter.

Well, I didn't go yesterday but did do the workout today. The only treadmill that goes 12mph wasn't free, so I was maxed at 10mph. Did something sorta similar...was a good run. 2.5 miles in 20:05.

During my "Lunch" at work, I climb up and down 100 flights of stairs (the same flight) five nights a week. I can usually do it in about 26-27min. Then I try to get a hike in on the weekend which varies in distance/elevation change depending on where I go. That pretty much keeps me at a stable weight with the amount of food I eat...

Then I'll take a quick break later in the day and eat my lunch (usually only takes me 10-15min to chow down a sandwich/chips or some salad with grilled meats and vinaigrette.

Hi Uncle Bob,

Yes, I did exercise today..my husband, son Bob, and I walked up one flight upstairs in the restaurant to have some Chinese Dim sum for lunch..afterwards, we quickly walked back downstairs to the car!..We exercised our legs, mouth, and tummy muscles today for sure!
Stop and experience Life.

I was out today doing some walking downtown, since I did a little bit of shopping.

I DID go to doctor's appointment as a follow-up to the hospital stay that I had last week. But don't want to overtax myself, as I'm trying to recover from congestive heart failure.

I DO feel my strength returning a little bit. Hopefully I can recover fully from this disease aqnd regain full stength. And I DO feel that I can walk more and more each day!!

I lifted weights 3 pounds in each hand for 5 minutes. Walked down stairs to
let the ducks into the pond (several more stairs to the pond).Walked up stairs to have my oatmeal and coffee. Drove to work...walked in the office back and forth to my printer (on the other side of the building)several times from my computer to the printer. Drove home and up a flight of stairs. No enough exercise. Promise to do more. This is a super tread...
