My exercises of choice?
- 30 minutes of walking in the mornings [3-4x a week]
- 30 minutes of walking in the late afternoons [3-4x a week]
- 20 minutes of 13 weight machines in a FitLinxx circuit + 1 hour of water aerobics at the YMCA [2x a week]
- 1 hour of Tai Chi [1x a week]--just added last week
I eat everything just not as much of it and limit breads to one meal a day, sometimes two. That's it. I even have a small dessert in the evenings.
My doctor was right... just exercise longer, not harder and it is really showing! I need a visual aid to celebrate, so here's a picture of what I've lost so far... the equivalent of a gallon of milk plus a 3-lb. hand weight! Imagine lugging that around all day every day! Sigh. I can't believe that I carried these around on my body [mainly my middle] for so long...
The next step? Just keep walking, just keep walking... :)
