In response to my "human sponge" post, H. asked how my exercise regime was going. I was surprised last spring when Denise Austin was no longer available on Lifetime TV. I've been able to fill in my exercise time with some exercise shows on public television, but they are not as rigorous in the cardio sense that D.A. was. Luckily, I do still have some of the old "Daily Workout" shows on videotape, so I'll usually do one show when I wake up at 5:30 and then whatever public television is broadcasting at 6 a.m., which alternates between Classical Stretch and Body Electric. A couple of mornings a week, since it is so beautiful outside right now, I walk. That's what I did this morning and then did a bunch of crunches before hitting the shower.
Lately, I've been walking or biking to work a couple of days a week. I've also gotten to the point where I can bike comfortably for 3-4 miles, so Kate and I have been taking bike rides. Our town is ideal for this as it is pretty flat and there is a bike trail near the lake. So far this week, and it is Tuesday a.m., I've logged over 2.5 hours of exercise. We'll see if I can keep this up and if this does the trick on the scales for me!
