we've been doing really well with exercise lately - worked out yesterday for about 30 minutes, 20 on the treadmill and 10 on the recumbant bike. man, that thing made me quite sore. plus, we walked for hours in a little shopping complex in the 90+ degree heat, that had to have burned off some calories.
