I actually find that exercise helps my mental state and my body composition more than it helps my weight directly. To control my weight requires fork drops and table pushbacks. ;-) (i.e. calorie control)
I use a Polar FT60 heart rate monitor and I'm usually pretty content when I've burned at least 400 calories on it per day in exercise (except on the rest day).
Here's my schedule:
(reposted from my spark page)
M - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Body Pump Class in the evening
Tu - XC ski at lunchtime (if there is snow), Spinning in the evening
W - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Body Pump Class in the evening
Th - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Spinning in the evening
F- Rest, stretching, sometimes a deep tissue massage
Sa - Playing outside (kayaking, XC skiing, snowboarding, road cycling, etc.)
Su - Playing outside
This past month I've been taking a horse riding lesson T/Th evenings instead of spin class. It means I'm burning less, but I'm getting those skills back. When I come back from riding in AZ with my sister (HAVASUROSE), I'll resume the spinning.
