I am going to get on the wagon again. This time I am starting with workouts and trying to regulate my own eating instead of paying WW right off the bat. I joined a gym last Thursday. I went Friday and Saturday. I am in a special program where I have to go three times a week--at the end of 16 weeks I will have to write a testimonial. It's a gorgeous gym. All of the recumbent bikes and treadmills are either in front of a TV or have a TV in them, and the treadmills have fans. Friday I did 5 minutes on a glider thing, but it hurt my knees (much like a regular bike does). Then I did 20 minutes on a recumbent bike and 10 minutes on a treadmill. Then I did a few machines I could figure out. (I meet with a trainer Wednesday to explain how all of the machines work, so I figure I'll do cario till then). Yesterday I did 10 minutes on the treadmill, then 30 on the bike--I was reading People and the time just flew by. I am worried about doing the recumbent bike--one of the reasons I want to get in shape is to ride a real bike more with my 7 year old DS this summer, but usually bikes hurt my knees, right around the kneecaps. I don't know if this will help that at all, and I also bet the regular bike would do more for my rear end, but I want to take this slow and work up to it. Robin M.
