I am making a resolution now: I will walk at least every second day.
Thankyou Kyles for the impetus to start.
Are you my clone? My pup would rather be carried anyway!

You made me feel sooooo much better!

You can be my exercise buddy! Go out now and sit on the couch for 2 hours only moving to get a drink or go to the loo! Changing tv channels counts as exercise!!!

Seriously though I dragged and alternately she dragged me, the dog for a short walk yesterday, it was lovely.

Oh, putting your pup on a leash and taking her out is so much fun! She (can you tell I tend towards female pets?) staggers all over the sidewalk. But s/he will never learn if you don't do it. You don't wind up with much exercise, but such fun. We started our two (now old ladies) very early ... so young that we had to actually pick them up to get them up a curb and on the sidewalk. But the entertainment value alone is worth it. And, as I often say, a lot of the benefits of exercise come down to simply being outside and moving. Emotionally, just being outside and not on your backside (and believe me, my very favorite activity in the world is sitting in my lazy-boy, reading) is something very worthwhile.

My workout is usually done cleaning and running up and down stairs several times aday. We live in a walkout basement style home and the only way to get out is stairs. I also have 2 dogs and 2 cats to tend to and most days they keep me moving.Also work in the garden alot and we have a rather long way to get our mail so that is a good walk also.

I went on a four and 1/2 mile hike this weekend.
I guess riding my #%$#)$! exercise bike is helping at least with
my heart rate because the walk didn't tire me out at all.
It was a flat hike, I'm sure if it had any UP to it I'd be singing
a different song.

I did two workouts today. At 7.30 am I hit the works gym and did 40 minutes quick cardio. And tonight I went to my home gym and did an hour very hard cardio, 20 minutes hills on level 17 (highest is 20) on the treadmill, 20 minutes on the cross trainer and 20 minutes on the stepper, I was sweating buckets by the end, and topped it off by walking home!!! I must be mad. Weight training day tomorrow!!!!

Before and during?

Here are two pictures, one before the diet began (I think the wrong guy is in the red suit) and one about a week ago

We live in an apartment we made over our restaurant. We have an ice cream machine for our restaurant. Now. I have the perfect exercise. Run up and down the stairs several times a day....however...somehow each time I get to the top....I have another ice cream cone in my hand! lol

You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.
