    I think walking 4-5 hours definitely makes a difference. Walking for 30 minutes though, not so much. I agree that if walking is your primary workout, you'd probably have to do at least 2 hours a day for it to make a difference, which is why I don't think it's actually that great of a workout. But walking around with friends, even just shopping, is definitely a good form of play and way healthier than sitting around.

    I never thought of videos... Might come in handy if I don't want to rush to the gym in the mornings. I watched bits of the first video... I want a kettle bell for the house. Do you have one?

    This morning's workout went like this:

    6.0 for 5 minutes on treadmill
    5.5 for 10
    Bench press 60lbs 3x10
    Overhead press 30lbs 3x12
    Low row 50lbs 3x12
    5.5 for 10 minutes

    I has planned on more cardio but my blood sugar dropped. Oh we'll... There is always tomorrow!

    Thanks! I've been lifting for years... But just got over my fear of heavier weights about a year and a half ago. I did Stronglifts 5x5 for a couple of months in the winter too.

    Isn't that close to what you use weight wise? You are much smaller than me too.

    Are you taller than me?
    This is it...
    How To: Seated Low Row (LF Cable) - YouTube

    I'm 5'5 and a half. I've hear something like that too before but I don't think I'm that tall.

    One of these days I'm going to focus of doing pull ups and chin ups. I just prefer weights.

    Helloooo! One of the prodigal daughters has returned...

    Finally had a chance to do some exercise today - not much, but it was better than nothing.

    Swimming: 6 lengths of a 30 meter pool
    Body weight: 30 Burpees, split squats 10 x 2 each side.
    Some other yoga stuff.



    Welcome Brooke! Do you have any fitness goals?
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I always seem to dislike burpees and body weight stuff. It almost seems like it takes more motivation because you don't have to go to an actual gym.

    Fitness goals... Right now I want to focus on getting more cardio in and not losing any strength. Eventually I want to be able to do pull-ups and chin-ups.

    Today's exercise:
    5.5 for 40 minutes
    4.0 at with incline ranging from 3-8% for 25 minutes

    Good goals!

    That's interesting that you dislike bw exercises: for me going to the gym is such a pain in the ass.

    Wednesday:
    8 lengths 30 metre pool, 27 burpees, side squats 10 each side x 2 reps.

    Thursday:
    11 lengths 30 metre pool, 25 burpees, 3 sets Sun Salutations, side squats 10 each side x 2 reps.

    ~1 hour walk around the city. x____x blah
    Sometimes it's good to take it easy.

    That hour walk sounds nice. I love walking around in big cities. Do you live in a big city?

    Ahhh... Paris... That sounds so nice.

    June 20th:
    treadmill
    7.0 for 5 minutes
    6.0 for 5 minutes
    5.2 for 10 minutes

    I stopped to check my sugar and it was low so I had to stop.


    That night I saw my nieces. I picked them both up like babies. One weighs around 90lbs and the other around 105lbs. I know it's not really exercise but it's nice to know my strength is functional. lol

    June 21st:
    treadmill for 1 hour
    6.0 for 5 minutes
    5.2 for 45 minutes
    4.0 with incline from 4-8% for 10 minutes

    Tomorrow I'm going to get back to the weights!

    Saturday, June 22:

    lat pull down machine: 70lbs 3x10, 60lbs 2x15
    Bench press with dumb bells: 60lbs 3x8, 50lbs 2x12
    leg press machine, single leg: 90lbs 3x10, 80lbs 2x15

    overhead press with barbell: 40lbs 3x10
    kettle bell swings: 20lbs 3x15

    The biggest kettle bell my gym has is 20lbs. Is that a decent weight for a female?

    treadmill: 45 minutes total
    35 minutes at 5.2
    10 minutes at 4 with incline from 4-8%

    I also stretch at the end of my workouts. Usually only 5-10 minutes though. I hate taking the time to stretch!
