Loving the bike

I try really hard to mix up what I do at the gym: treadmill, bike, elliptical, swimming, strength training. I work out my little routine...what days I do which ST, cardio, etc., but I keep coming back to the bike more than any other cardio. ... Read more

Well, I think I've gone backwards, but that's ok, from today I am only moving forward! My weight is up from this time last year, but not by much at all. Measurements are another story. They are definitely up a bit more, but still not horrible. ... Read more
