I've been doing my post-festive season detox for the past 10 days or so, I've already lost around 15 lb which is great, I'm just a bit over halfway to my first short term goal! I've been looking more into strength training related exercise rather than a lot of cardio (cardio hinders more than helps me) so once I get back into the swing of the exercise routine again, it's lots of bodyweight training, yoga and pilates and a little bit of cardio

Good Luck, Babe. I'm up to walking 10 miles a day. Shrek rode the recumbent bike for 30 minutes today. I'm going to start using the bike again, too!

Beg pardon Your Ogreness, but have your doctors okay'd you for so much exercise? Will you be walking alone? Please forgive me if I seem a little too nosy. I'm just concerned for you. I'm very thankful that we still have you here.

They know about the walking...I'll be talking to the cardiologist on Thursday about the bike and strength training. I am being that good at least! I've been very good about following my restrictions...to the letter.

Oh, and I do my walking in the mall with the other old folks!

Thanks!

Glad to hear you are following directions. Now go eat a Billy goat. I hear they are great for building muscle and as we all know the heart is a muscle<3

I most humbly beg your pardon my liege. May Your Ogreness reign forever! Who sprinkles rose petals in front of you when you walk?
