Fitness question

Several servers are down here today, so I can't do much work. And that makes it harder to resist eating things that are way off the diet. I think Mondays are the hardest for that, maybe.

Which reminds me... how many of you folks have a regular exercise plan? I know I need to set up a structure for that sort of thing, but with work and home ownership and a dozen other priorities, it feels almost impossible to do much more than a few stretches when I happen to think of it. To hear the experts tell it, anything less than 30 minutes of aerobic exercise, at least 3 or 4 times a week is tantamount to slow suicide. An hour every single day is much better, they say. Ack.

Who really does that? Do all of you actually do that, and I just don't know about it? I mean, I sometimes think I must be in the top 10% of the sedintary.

I was doing pretty well there at Curves for about 6 months (and losing weight really fast) but then I found out that Curves is owned by an extreme anti-choice homophobe, so I had no choice but to quit or seriously comprimise my values.

Now what? I really hate traditional gyms. But it looks like I'm headed for Gold's anyway, because I can't think of any other good solutions. Any advice regarding better gym environmets or exercise programs would be greatly appreciated.

Walk Away the Pounds dvds - they only way to do it, in my book.

1, 2, and 3 mile workouts, with weights and cardio. Easy steps to do, and you can do them in your home and therefore not have to travel to a gym after work or anything. It's seriously the only thing that's getting me exercising!

I think I really should look into that, if only as a supplement to what I do at Gold's. I need options! Otherwise I will probably fail again.

Wonder if I can Netflix those?

You totally can - they have about 9 of her DVDs listed in their database. I suggest trying the power mile - looks like she's got other types, too.

Then there's also the Hula Girl, Island Girl, etc., type workouts. Netflix seems to have a little of everything, so you can always get dvds to suit your tastes as a supplement to your regular workout. :)
