for those about to walk (or run, or zumba)

I believe that every human has a finite number of heart-beats. I don't intend to waste any of mine running around doing exercises. -- Buzz Aldrin

I'm with Buzz, at least until my clothes stop fitting or my doctor says "Really, you should move something occasionally." But from the comfort of my La-Z-Ass recliner, I do admire those who get themselves into shape; I've even made some whispered remarks about maybe joining some of them this summer when my life miraculously transforms into a delight of Efficient Time Management.

Until then, join me in three cheers for these lovely, fit ladies:

Lisa at MamaMilton
Shana at So Not Zen
Miss Burrows at A.R. and Proud

And if you rock the exercise world as well, shout it out in comments. I salute you.

Why, thank you, thank you very much.

Thank you Stephanie. :) I KNOW you are going to at least not hate Zumba. It's too much fun.

I exercise, but to not much avail in the weight loss department. I probably need to quit eating whatever I want.

Honestly, if I could look like you without moving from in front of my computer I would totally do it.

That's good of you to recognize the wonderful thing they do for themselves. Whenever I start exercising after a long drought of butt-sitting, I am reminded just how good it is for me.

I don't run, but I do walk or get on the elliptical. I also try to do some weight training and a Pilates session every week. I am afraid to try Zumba since I have NO sense of rhythm. I didn't lose weight from exercise alone, but it does give me more energy.

I firmly believe you shouldn't run unless something ugly is chasing you.

I do aquacize as many times a week as I can and also walk around outside in nice weather, on a treadmill in the rain/cold/snow. I also do *Walk Away The Pounds* dvd*s and some other dvd*s to get in some weight training.

I used to do yoga & pilates but was advised to cut back on those after my surgery...I will return to those maybe in the fall.

I *HAVE* to exercise; and even with it, I merely maintain weight. I have a very slow metabolism, esp, after the hyst.
