  •  Just started exercising at home again (18+ / 0-)

    Now that I've got last year's anemia ... and the holidays ... behind me.

    Have an elliptical and rower at home, and a set of adjustable dumbbells that I use for exercises.

    Now to keep it up!

      I fell off the ex.bike habit a couple of months ago, have GOT to get back on!

      we have a reclining ex.bike that we have set up in the LR, so we can read or watch TV while we pedal. Teh Hubban' is managing his Type 2, and I'm trying to lose weight & manage (stave off) the family high blood pressure. that WAS working back when I was actually pedaling...

      this equipt. works for me because of the chair-type seat (can't use regular shape bicycle seat any more); and no need to rest my weight on carpal wrists, as on most regular bikes. I can & do ride some outside, during better weather, but it hurts.

      very frustrating actually, no matter how hard I work at the ex. or the food management, I'm almost exactly where i was about 4 years ago when we started (because his Type 2 was diagnosed). of course, I am 8 yrs older (65) and female, so there are all those factors complicating the process, and I guess I really wouldn't want to lose weight the way he did! (although he lost 70# in about 2 mo.)

      IF I could lose about 60# I'd be a LOT better off, if still over 30# higher than all the charts say! (can't possibly think of it in terms of 90-100#, I'd never get myself up to start! AND I think 130 would just be ridiculous, I probably haven't weight that since I was 14 or something. but I really wouldn't mind getting back down to 160. that would feel reasonable.)

      "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...
