Wow, Exercise is Amazing!
Sadly, I have neglected regular exercise most of this time, although I am fairly active in general, but I moved my stationary bike upstairs and got out my hand weights and began an exercise program this week and WOW!
i am amazed at how many calories I burned in just a short workout! And the better part is how many calories it added to my daily total!
It is great to see that all I eat during the day is cut in half and I have calories left over at the end. As long as I don't 'eat up' the difference I am ahead of the game. That was a revelation.
It gave me a new perspective on exercise. Being the creature of 30 years of habit, (not exercising regularly, and looking at it as something that 'takes away' my free time and options....yeah, I know that was stupid anyway!) this comes as quite a shock to me that I will gain what I desire by exercising a little during the day...
Yeah, I know I am slow to get the point and stubborn.
So all I can say is THANKS MYFITNESSPAL.COM.
Doing this program has made me pay attention to what I eat and made ME want to exercise!!!
