  • Ready to go and HIIT it!!

    God bless & be encourage.

  • Only walking today. Upset stomach last night.
  • Great list thanks!
  • Try to get some aerobic exercise everyday, all different sorts.
  • I would say I was playing devil's advocate, but I'm really starting to get convinced that this is undeniable fact. If you gained and maintained the weight you want to lose while doing the same amount of daily chores that you still do, they should not count. Unless it's over and above what you did during the "growing" period, it's not additional calories burned. You have to burn *more* calories than you did while gaining and maintaining obesity status. I think it's a disservice to include these things on a list without noting that. Just because you enter the weekly car wash in the activity tracker doesn't help you lose one ounce if you have always done a weekly car wash. If you just started doing it, then it counts as exercise, but if it's a chore you've always done, you're just kidding yourself by counting it now.
  • I would love to learn hula hooping or some type of dance. One of my goals this year!
  • Great Blog. Thanks for reminding us.
  • I don't understand how "time can be cumulative" if it takes 11.5 minutes for me to get my heart rate up to 55-60% of max. That sounds like a MINIMUM of 20 minutes each session (and that was work my leg muscles complained about - stationary bike, about 16mph average, interval program). I suspect that while most of my body's out of shape, my heart's just FINE and dandy... :)
  • More workout videos please! It would be great if you had a program of workouts, 1-50, say, enumerated by difficulty and length of workout. We could do #1 for a week or so until confident, then progress to #2 etc. Some workouts especially for seniors with mobility issues pls? It would also be great if it were easier to cut straight to the workout videos without having to search around the site for them.
  • I babysat my 2 year old grandson today for four hours and I am bushed! He runs everywhere and wants to show me every little thing there is. How I wish I could keep up with him. Mostly it was "Watch me! Watch me!" Which I did. He is such a sweetheart.
  • This list is a good start. There are a lot more activities that are fun that can be added to it, too! But "cardio" means it is working the heart, and anything that is getting the heart pumping faster, rather than an anaerobic activity, is cardio, no matter if it's for 1 minute or 10 or 60. People who are sick or in physical therapy/recovery from serious illness have to start with very tiny steps to slowly build up, but those are STILL cardio, and still matter. You have to learn to crawl before you can walk. If you can't even do 2 minutes of sustained activity with your heart, you shouldn't feel bad and give up. "Cardio" is anything that works the heart - even gently that does not reach a certain target rate if your doctor does not recommend it - for whatever length of time you can do. Be proud if you did 30 seconds more than you could last week - that's progress!
  • Great option to selection from to accumulate 30 or more minutes of cardio stimulating activities.
  • Lots of choices here, today I did two 30 min HIITs one for lower and one for upper body. Not easy!
  • You gave us plenty of choices. And variety, so I think it will keep us busy. Thank you for this article.
