Its hard to believe I have been a spark member since 2006.

My sats are:

I started at a size 22W. I currently wear a size 10.
I didn’t walk a minute per day when I started. Now I’m walking 75 minutes a day.
I ride my exercise bike 3o minutes a day 4 times a week.
I use my weights for 30 minutes at a time 3 times a week.

I hated cutting back to 75 minutes from my 120 minute walk each day. I’ve read on spark that I should be able to walk everyday for the rest of my life. My ankle and foot problems are 100% from to much walking and have proven that information to be wrong. Its sad, but has opened my eyes to other forms of exercising. However if you can tell me what you do to keep that exercise bike from being the MOST boring exercise ever I’d love to hear it!

    I've also been on Spark since 2006!

    Can you put your exercise bike in a spot where you can see the TV while you are using it?

    You're an inspiration, and I know how the exercise bike can get boring. When I get bored with cardio equipment, I usually know it's time for me to update my music. Also, you may consider getting a spinning dvd or take a spin class. Personally, I get bored easily, but I usually attend a body pump, spin, and zumba class when I get bored with turbo fire. Keep calm and carry on.

    I read a book also go fast for one minute than stay pace for one minute and than slow for one minute, I am watching the clock to see when to change that the time goes by fast.

    always listen to your body, I did a lot of exercising barefoot and bruised the muscles in my feet causing Plantar Fasciitis and now I have to get shots in my feet and wear special shoes just to keep the pain away so I can walk and exercise!
