True that. I know there are folks like yourself Jean who work hard enough to get the workout. And I don't mean that others don't as well. I just think quite a few of us, myself included, are too inproficient (makin up words as I go) with hand tools or just don't use them enough to get out of the need for the gym.
I also whole heartedly agree that you have to want fitness/healthy lifestyle. No one is going to do it for you. I recently had a come to Jesus moment and embarked on getting my sorry butt back in shape. I've lost 69 pounds since August, dropping 6" off the waistline and dropping the body fat percentage from near 40% to 22%. Cholesterol levels back to normal, blood sugar normal and on the lowest dose if blood pressure meds, just because of familial hypertension and doc not wanting me completely off just yet.
There's no way I could have done that without working out, either at gym or home. Nor could I have done it without significant dietary changes. Anyway, all I am really trying to say is do what works for you. Just be aware that you might need a little something extra.
That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
