Default Starting again ..

but this time it's different .. I've been making it to the gym .. I've been going every day i started out Monday and my favorite thing to do is ride the bikes .. (i HATE the elliptical machine but i know that's how you burn the most calories in less time) .. lol .. Monday on the bike i could only make it 10 mins w/ a 3 min. cool down .. but today i made it 20 mins w/ a 5 min cool down and burned 137 calories .. and then i do the nautilus machines working my arms .. tomorrow I'm taking my daughter and were going to do the kids zumba class .. cant wait!!

So glad to hear from you. Sounds like you're back with a vengeance as far as the exercise goes. What's your plan as far as the food goes?

I just want to caution you that those calories burned things are usually on the very high side. They're pretty much inaccurate. Just do what you can do, slowly increase and try to focus on those numbers.

I've heard lots about Zumba. My daughter actually went to a class last night. She loved it. I'm sure you will too!

Glad to see you back and committed! I'm thrilled your including your daughter in your fitness routine. I heard Zumba is fun, looking into that myself.

To get there you've got to start -- so good for you for re-committing!

And glad you've found something at the gym you like to do -- dreading exercise is the worst.
