Oh fap, foiled again. "You must perform above your baseline in order to ignite substantial changes in your body. Whatever your normal walking pace is in life, if you're doing this around that giant lake path, expect only minor changes and a soon-hit plateau." Fitness walking

Yes, it's the second day of the new year, but day one of returning to a more healthy way of eating, and adding in a bit more exercise. Those pounds just settled in for a long winter's nap. Today I had about 20 minutes of walking (in doors) and 15 minutes on my exercycle. Enjoying my DVD of biking along country roads in Scotland.

Just a quick note - no walks - too icy on the canal path and am treadmill adverse, but at least park 2 and 1/2 blocks from the office so I do have some walking in. Still am doing 2 - 3 exercise routines a day. Just wanted to post: Happy New Year - Welcome to the World, Year 2013!

I just rode my bike through beautiful Loch Etive Scotland for about 12 minutes. VITA Digital Productions. We got 4 virtual jog and bike ride DVDs for Christmas. It's 59 minutes, but I'm out of shape, and ate too much for the holidays, so we'll do this in segments. It begins on a roadway with birds chirping and sheep bleating with gorse (yellow) and Blue Bells blooming (late May). I'm not there yet, but the explanation says I'll see the ruins of a stone cottage used in the 1960 movie, Kidnapped. As the sleet and snow hit the window of my office, it's a nice diversion.

Posting a photo of me (thinner) on the frig door never seemed to work. But I saw a recent photo of Isabella Rosellini with her twin sister Ingrid and 1/2 sister Pia that might work. She has really packed on the pounds--still beautiful, however. Now 60. Where does the time go? Trying the exercycle again and have asked for cycling dvd's of Italy and Ireland for Christmas.

Regular Day Off and catching-up on home chores today. My walking path continues through the roundabout way in old Colona and along the Hennepin Canal. This morning, geese were taking a dip in the Canal -kind of cold I think. But these feathery friends were enjoying the water. Now on to my chores - tree trimming, weed trimming, gutter cleaning, and window washing.
