Hi, I would like to make a continuing thread of April's Exercise Thread. Let's post what we do for exercise! :carrot:
May 1 (today) - I took about a 30 minute walk, it was scenic and relaxing. I plan on walking tomorrow too!
I can't remember who said they have the underwater iPod, but what is it like? I am thinking of using one for swimming...
:carrot: Happy exercising, everyone! I hope you are all well! ;)

Hi there, I am glad that people are benefiting from the restart of this thread.
For me, today- I walked about 50-60 mins! I am tired now but I feel great having done it :cool: I think I would rather take walks and swim instead of keeping 'vegging' out on the couch not making any progress. I can't wait 'til I can swim, which should be in a few days...:carrot:
Be well :)

Are you exercising at all? I find it makes me feel better after I do it. At least I can say that about the exercises that I do like, which are swimming and walking.
I found your post very interesting about the NY Times article and will probably reply to it soon, thank you for that! I am a New Yorker at heart even though I don't live there now, lived there for most of my life and I love NYC, the Times is a good paper. I think that was a particularly interesting article and I appreciate you sharing it!
I may go for another walk soon, back to exercise to get these pounds off!!

I'm really trying to stay active every day. Usually by walking with intermittent spurts of jogging. I find it really helps lift my spirits, but there is something about just getting started that is challenging.
Walking and swimming are my favorites too. :) And riding my bike.
I'm glad you found the article interesting, confidence is a subject that is really interesting to me...plus I really like the Times. :) I'm really interested in knowing how other people who battle their weight feel about their own self-confidence.

I just got back from a walk and it was great. I feel a little tired now but I feel so much better having walked than not. I need to exercise more and I may go swim tomorrow!! :^: It would be a good idea for me to bike more too instead of having my bike just sit in my bedroom.
I like the NY Times, I think it is a good paper. When I get a moment and if I remember, I will reply to your thread. Confidence and self esteem are very important. Self love is too! I am working on being gentler with myself and hopefully when I do that, some of the others will continue to come with time. :)
So, for today, Saturday, I went for two walks and swam! Swimming felt so awesome :) I love to swim. I am taking some swim lessons soon too and am really looking forward to that!
Tomorrow's plan is more walks and then I want to get to the pool again by Tuesday at the latest.
Have a good night everyone...

Great job everyone!
It's good to see you Ohio :) I should do some weight training too.
Today, I went swimming, mainly laps, which felt SOO great!! I swam for about 40 minutes :D
I also walked for about 30 minutes.
I had my swim lesson today and I really enjoyed it! It was fun and some of it was quite challenging too, in a positive way! I also took some more walks Tuesday.
I hope everyone is having a good week!
