I wanted to put this in a blog but I have no idea how to do the url part. I give up. I will write here. There must be a reason for it. I wrote earlier today that I would start working out today. I did it! I went to the room that has equipment in it. I rode the stationary bike for 18 min. I burned 28.8 calories. My heart rate got up to 125. I got 50% of the way thru the program before I had to quit. This was the weight loss program on the bike and in the past, long ago, I was only able to finish 10% of the program. It felt great to do the workout. My plan is to continue this workout one time a week for about a month then increase it to 2x weekly for 2 weeks or a month then 3x then 4x. Then depending on how I feel, I would like to increase my time on the bike.

My goal is to lose weight, inches, and regain my physical strength.

Good for you!! Sounds like a good start and a good plan. Keep it going. I ordered some new workout dvds that should be arriving within a couple of days. They'll be a much needed and welcome addition to my current exercise routine.

Way to go! Nice start! If I might suggest, try changing things up a bit. One session on the bike instead of using the pre-programmed program, set it at a level you feel comfortable and see how long you can maintain that. It'll help with endurance. Oh, and I alwys take my music along - it keeps me from concentrating on the clock. Best of luck to you!

When you are on any site. Look up near the tool bar. You will see the site and perhaps some numbers in the tool bar area. Hold down the left click button to highlight it. Leave the mouse in place and right click and scroll to copy. Then right click to paste it here. How exciting! You are climbing to the top of the mountain!
