Somewhat discouraging, but I have to admit - VERY realistic! Thanks! Report
Thank you Report
Great article. I understand the concept, just haven't found those exercises that I would continue to do on a regular basis Report
thanks. Report
Excellent article. Thanks for sharing. Report
With the first statement on here, that all exercise is hard work, It indicates that playing games of any sort doesn't give you exercise. Yet in just about everything else I read, if you treat your exercise as "playing" like children do, you are more likely to stick with it. Just straight "work" like getting on a treadmill or stationary bike is boring and not something that a lot of people will stick with. Playing something like tennis, pickleball, basketball, etc. will get your heart rate up, is fun to do, and will help you stick to it. Do something you enjoy, not just what others consider exercise that is boring to you. Report
Ummmmm...by your definition, strength workouts aren't exercise. I can lift weights for 20 minutes consecutive and not raise my heart rate to "aerobic levels", and according to your definition, that is not exercise, whi h is ostensibly false. Heart rate does not define exercise. Report
Very informative! Report

Thank you for the info. Note to everyone: Walk lots while you are able to. Not all of us are fortunate enough to walk. And no I don't just sit here feeling sorry for myself. I just regret that I did not exercize more when I was better able to do it. Report
Thank you for the information! I love that I can get real advice from an expert here! Report
Great reminders! Especially that the calories burned won't allow me to eat a lot more......paying attention to actual v/ net calories is more important for my weight loss maintenance Report
This is great information and will help me keep pushing through my workouts. Report
