After I exercise I like to eat pizza.
Just kidding. I don't exercise.

I burned about 450 calories in under an hour at the Y. It's a start but I can do better.

Where I need to improve:
- I need to get more than 7 hours of sleep every night. That means I need to get to bed by 11:30.

- I need to be ready to go OTD to exercise by 7:45 every morning. It's more of a lack in mental discipline than being tired. The 4 cups of coffee (that's how much my thermos holds) don't help because it summons nature's call.

- I need to sign up for a personal trainer. Cardio is OK, but my blood test results show that I need to get my LDL down. I need to strengthen my core (studies show that larger muscle groups like legs burn more calories and a stronger core means less nagging aches and pains (or more precisely will help keep my back from going out as easily.)

I had the same problem with my back. Started doing weight exercises that strengthen the back and I have had fewer problems with it going out. Routine for me is 20 mins on the treadmill, then some weight training and then 30 mins on the treadmill after the weights. And then on Saturday 90 mins on the treadmill going from 2.0 to 2.3 to 2.6 speed.
