Oh man, is this a sore point! LOL. I need to get to the gym more than 1-2 imes a week, and I haven't been. I did make a commitment and have not kept to it very well, have I? I hate exercise, BUT once I get into doing the exercise, I feel so much better, I'm glad I'm there. I use a machine where I sit and move my feet and my arms. I can increase the pressure (okay that's not the right word for it, but you know.........resistance, that's it!! lol) and can increase the watts etc. by how fast you go. I then do some strength training, so I do both cardio and weights.

i go to a cardiac rehab program 3 times a week (well, i TRY to make it there 3 times a week!).
it's supervised treadmill walking, biking, etc. i hate it! i would rather be outdoors, when possible.
but it's still so blasted hot here can't do that yet. and i 'spose it's better to be under supervision,
at this point. i'm not a fan of exercise, but i do enjoy nice, long walks in the park. i love to swim,
but don't have access much to a pool.

i'd be interested in hearing what everyone else does, and how faithfully!

I mainly walk..Sometimes if the weathers bad I`ll ride my exercise bike...In additiona I do some stretching,twisting exercises..My job requires a lot of lifting heavy stuff so I get a bit of exercise that way...Believe it or not about 15 years ago I was huge and worked out with weights powerlifting 5 nights a week..I could bench press 300 pounds
