Exercise update

I'm still sticking with my plan. This week was my 5th week in a row of exercising at least five times a week - and this week I got in six times! Today is a rest and recovery day though. I have been trying to give myself time to recover by switching around. I rarely do the same exercises two days in a row. If I run on the treadmill, the next day gets a bike ride, exercise bike, or workout video. This way I keep myself entertained, and switch up which muscles are getting a workout.

The workout video I've been doing is Sansone's Walking exercise DVD. It's lots of marching in place, with strength moves thrown in. It's a good workout, but my feet do not care for the marching in place - the pressure on the balls of my feet can make my toes go numb, so I have to concentrate on how my feet are hitting the floor.

Adding up all the exercise, plus I've been doing a good job of keeping my calories in line, I hope I see some progress on the scale on Monday. I'll be fine with it either way. One problem is that I'm going to get a new digital scale because the old analog one isn't as accurate - it gives me different numbers every time I step on it, sometimes as much as 7 lbs different! So whatever number I get from the new scale on Monday will be my new starting point, and I'll work from there.
