Good to hear from you, Christina!

I'm still not doing any regular exercise although I know I should be. But I do go up and down the subway steps and walk to and from the subway, so that's better than nothing.

One suggestion. When I embarked on my regular exercise program about 20 years ago, I learned that I needed to push myself for the first few weeks or months. I don't mean "push" in the sense of pumping tons of iron or running a marathon. I mean making sure that I exercised at least 3 times per week.

It started with short (~1 mile) walks at lunchtime. The important thing is to make it part of your ROUTINE. I'd even have a little notebook to keep a log of my exercise.....but I didn't need that after a while. Because exercise became part of my LIFE......can't do without it.

Now I belong to a Club, which I love to attend. Full-service, with a pool, tennis courts, etc. Most of all....a lot of buddies. I need to go during the week, because then I'll get my "fix" of conversation....I don't know the weekend folks well enough.

Anyway, I would encourage ANYone to try to "get with" a regular exercise program. In the beginning, it's work.....with time, it's FUN!
