I do a few things in terms of cardio:

During the week, I walk from Union Station to my job in the morning (1.5 miles) and from my job to Union Station in the evening (1.5 miles), so that's an easy 3 miles.

On most days during week, I also take a walk during my lunch break that can range from 2-3 miles or sometimes even more than that.

A few times during the week, I try to make it LA Fitness and get on the elliptical trainer for 65 minutes (60 minute workout, 5 minute cooldown).

At home, if I have the energy, I also like to get on my XBox Kinect and play Kinect Sports (boxing and track and field will definitely get you sweating) or Dance Central 2 & 3.

In the upcoming months, I would like to diversify my cardio and try swimming and spinning as well.

I will be walking outside when I can. When the weather is too bad, I will use the bicycle in the gym downstairs or walk around the walking track we have here as well.

Just ordered Just Dance 3 for Wii. Would have ordered Just Dance 4 but found out you cannot choose your music like you can in 3. Hoping to have some fun while working out!

Happy New Year Everyone! emoticon

As soon as medically possible and allowed, I will be back in the pool swimming laps and water aerobics. I also will be more consistent about making my way upstairs in the gym to the weight room so I can continue to build lean muscle mass and burning more calories. I also work out at home to some of Coach Nicole's workouts. And do some strength training with hand weights I use periodically through out the evening for 10 minute burst workouts.
As soon as I am able to meet with a physical therapist to help me modify some of my exercised while I am going through this chemo and have restrictive movement of my back, I will have a better idea of what my workouts will look like.

it's journey, not a one day hike.

Walking, walking, and more walking! I just got a new Polar heart rate monitor and am loving the information I get on my walks from that thing. My goal is a good long walk 5 days a week -actually, I secretly strive for 7 days a week, but will consider 5 days a week to be a successful walking week, at least for now.

Happy New Year, SparkFriends! emoticon

What will you do to increase your cardio exercise to keep healthy for your body & heart?


I will be walking when I can, especially since my new job responsibilities really have me more stationary at work so I do what I can to add step and actually stand up most of the time I have to work in the cash office (burns more calories standing vs. sitting)

I invested for Christmas as a gift to ME a used Sole F80 treadmill so even when I get home late and its turning dark I can use that to de-stress and cardio.

I've got the elliptical all set up in the 1st room I enter when I come thru the door!

Plus for added fun lots of dvds, a Wii System, and XBox 360 Kinect. My son got me the Dance Central 2 game to work on my moves and do it workout mode!!!!
