Fitness is important for both mental and physical health. You might like to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air. Maybe you hit the gym. Pilates may be your thing or you just love running tights. Vote for your favorite option.

I run a lot. However, I skipped this morning’s run for some girl time instead.

I have been focused on weight loss this year and hit the treadmill at the gym six days a week. My goal is 5k a day but recently upped my game and now do a 6k a day. I started at 3.4mph and gradually worked up to 3.9mph and pretty use to this speed now so the plan is to punch it up to 4.0 next week.
Changing my diet and upping my walk intensity must be doing something right as I’ve dropped 38lbs to date.
This is all so I can start hormone therapy so I’m very motivated.
Ready, sweat, go!
Thanks for asking.

In the past, I never really exercised specifically, relying on the work i did around the house to accomplish that. Did not really watch my diet either, a bit overweight perhaps, but not too bad. In 2020 though i became quite ill (not covid related) that required hospitalization. I lost 35 pounds. Upon my recovery, I was prescribed an exercise regimen that included weights, specific exercises for my neck back and knees which were giving me problems, biking (which I enjoyed anyway and got away from over the years) and walking, in addition to a sensible balanced diet. The results have been very positive – I’ve maintained my new lower weight, my eating habits are changed for the better, I feel stronger, my blood pressure has lowered and is more consistent, my overall energy has increased – and best of all for our purposes here, I can fit much more nicely into the form fitting styles that I like!

All you girls doing all that physical exercise is making me feel so guilty. I was self employed in the construction industry for decades and got all my physical exercise through work so I’ve never had a gym membership. I was also an avid hunter and fisherman. Now, since being retired I’m only exercising by walking which some days its a lot of walking around our property while other days its only from the couch to the kitchen and back…. Oh, I see I need another beer!

During my life I have practiced contact sports: Rugby, Muay Thai, MMA, but also swimming and biking and cross fit
Unfortunately, 2 years before the start of the Covid19 pandemic I was found to have a benign tumor on the optic nerve.
This has violently changed my life and with it all my sporting activities.
I had to undergo chemotherapy and radiation first and then the removal operation, after the surgery the doctors forbade me almost everything I did before as a sport; I can take long walks, swim, cycle on land without major slopes.
Now I am facing a new food plan to rebalance my metabolism still under the shock of chemotherapy.
For now I am satisfied with taking long walks between the city and the beach in the company of my labrador.
Then I’ll start cycling and then swimming again.
Biking and swimming will surely restore shape to my buttocks and legs and compete with the diet when I get back in shape.
No pain No gain
Hugs from Italy

I used to be an avid cyclist but now, having moved from the temperate climate of the UK (until this summer) to sub tropical North Carolina, I don’t ride outside for a couple of reasons. 1) It’s not fun in 90F ( 32C) temperatures and 2) Many American drivers cannot see cyclists. I have a recumbent bike in the house where I can control the temperature. Add to that, I have a subscription to iFit.com and my bike bluetooths to my tablet allowing me to cycle anywhere there is Google Street View. As an OAP, I do try and keep up with my exercise by completing at least two 3 mile sprints each day. I also used to walk a lot but replacement knees & back surgery, although a godsend, have slowed me down in that area of exercise.

Hey Ashley, I watch how much I eat (beer and pizza) and still work 5 half days a week as a lumberjack. I call that my farm aerobics and I never go to the gym. I agree with Susan that it gets harder to do as I get older but the alternate is so much worse.
Vee gonna pomp u up? Marg

I love pumping…iron… no really. I love to lift.
My second source of exercise is, no not that, I play Ice hockey.
resistance training helps me release a TON of stress from the world around me.
Annnnnnd, I’ve started having a little fun wearing leggings or REALLY short shorts to the gym, but lifting all my guy stuff… I hope I’m confusing the HELL out of some straight/uptight folks at 24 hour fitness. LOL
Have fun out there!

I am avid cyclist and swimmer. I regularlly train in both activities, (usally wearing the appropriate feminine attire for the activity). As such, I cannot pick one activity.
I hope within a year to be able to return competing in full triathlons. Currently, my running is limited medically. I do, however, compete in aquabike events (a triathlon without the running).
