My various other threads discuss what has been happening for me in the past half-dozen years or so as fell I off the fitness band-wagon among many other band-wagons. Now I am making a sincere effort to come back. So to start--- I am challenging myself to do AM fasted cardio at least 3 times a week - generally M-W-F -- with the hopes that at times I will do more and maybe even reach 7 days a week on occasion. But I am not setting my sights up too high -- I will be very grateful if I achieve 3 times a week. So my goal is 45 min of fasted cardio on one of two machines. The main one will be the 770AT Total Body Arc trainer by Cybex - an amazing piece of equipment that is an elliptical cross-trainer that somehow puts zero pressure on any joints. I was using it a couple of years ago when I was in extreme pain due to needing a hip-replacement which due to circumstances I had to delay for over 6 mos. Though it became increasingly painful to even walk -- I was still able to go on the Cybex Arc Trainer. The other will be the standard treadmill -- though no running -- just quick walking on an incline to get my heart rate up. I may follow it up with a cool down 1/2 mile walk out in the sun while I go to a nearby Starbucks to get my favorite dry latte/wet cappuccino drink - depending on the barrister - at Starbucks. So I plan to report back here. Hope you can join me!
