10/7/13......LOVE swimming, even in the cold weather

Monday, October 07, 2013

I know that I should be doing other exercises to get the most "bang" for the buck, calorie out wise. however, i am so fat that it is still uncomfortable for me to use the recumbant bike and/or treadmill and/or weight machines. so, i figure i'll do the pool for a long while, get some weight off, then add in the "on land" exercises (machines, classes, etc). i think that is a good idea for me. then in 3 years, when i have exercise down as 2nd nature and i don't have to think about it, then i will add in working on my calories and portions.

    For me, swimming's a great way to get moving. It also adds gentle resistance training -- when you move in the water, you're moving against the water, too.

    For an exercise program to be successful, you should like what you're doing. If you like swimming, go for it!
