    Thanks so much for these helpful tips...

    I will try to use hand weights while watching TV.... (but let me keep the remote) haha
  • I actually love to workout! I like how my body and mind feel afterwards. I feel strong and sexy and empowered. Every time I get done with a workout, I know I'm getting more fit and healthy. To me, sweat is sexy!!!
  • Aside from group activities (difficult to find/do them 5 times a week), I simply don't like exercise. However, this is something I want to change; hopefully, doing something I enjoy rather than something I hate. Yeah, I need an attitude adjustment.
  • I appreciated the article. A good reminder to stay focused and keep working towards the goal. I enjoy reading others comments too. Some people have good ideas and it helps to remind me I am not the only one out there trying to stay healthy.
  • can't appreciate ocd activities
  • Love the idea of Keeping a pair of comfortable walking shoes in your car. Definite going to take that advice. No excuses.

    I miss you Jen your articles are very healthy. my main goal is to remain heathy. I tried to exercise 5-7 days a week for 20- 30 mins a day for the 3 days I work and 1 hour minimum for my days off . I guess it make up for keeping my cholesterol and blood pressure within normal range. On my day of work, not only I take the steps but also my job involve a lot of ups and down the hallway, turning and repositing matters. I guess that count also for something. I t ' s good to know that I am doing the right thing. I used to feel guilty if I miss 1 day or do too little exercise. Thank you much.

    Here's another ides: At work, I go to a restroom on another floor, taking the stairs each way.

    I can do everything you suggested except for one.... Please don't make me give up my remote!! I'll make it up by walking extra --- but have a heart --- I'm a compulsive channel changer.
  • I do all I can to keep my BP and cholestrol in check but my major down fall is the exercising because of my knees(osteoarthritis in both)bone tearing into bone(awful pain just to walk),water exercise I cannot not get there because I am disable,can not drive nore can I afford the membership of a gym. So I do my best I can with what I got.
    I thank you Jen for the great article.
  • It was good to read an article that confirms what my Dr told me all along about getting exercise 5 days a week. I thought he was just pushing me. The exercises and eating fish 3 times a week were his main objectives for me.
  • Remember to get an annual physical.

    This article is a helpful reminder of the importance of exercise-since I started exercising on a regular basis my BP dropped 20 points, my triglycerides dropped 45 points and my HDL increased by 6 points.

    Really good article......my cholestrol is so good, the doctor is envious. He contributes it to the exercise I do faithfully. By the way I eat eggs and it will not raise the cholestrol in the body. The cholestrol in an egg and the cholestrol made by the body is not the same.


  • Five days ago my Doctor gave me a blood test and my triglycerides were at 225 and my LDL was at 154. It is borderline high. She put me on medication and I have 12 weeks to bring it down. If anyone can offer some pointers please send them.
