    I like to walk and listen to music. I can't do the whole treadmill thing though, even if I can watch TV while I do it. BORING.

    I also like to dance. There is a Wii game called Just Dance. It's a contest to follow the dancing holding a remote and you get points if you match the movement. I don't hold a remote, I just dance along. It really gets your heart up and makes you sweat! And the dancing isn't sexual or inappropriate. I have Just Dance 1, 2, 3, 4, 2014, and 2016. I think they just came out with a 2017. Of course, right when I get 2016... Some times I goof off and start dancing and I find I actually have movements I'm not flailing my arms and kicking my legs up in the air, lol.

    Right now I am working on cardiovascular endurance. Once dancing is too easy I'll find something else, but this works for now.

    So what do you do?

    Morning work out: wake up, stretch, walk to shower, vigorously brush teeth, wrestle with eggs and bacon.

    That's the same workout I do too. Except on days when I'm not 100% into it I just do the egg and bacon wrestling and leave it at that. No sense in forcing myself, right?

    My doctor once told me, "You have a limited number of heartbeats." No point in using them up too fast. :biggrin2

    I use only weights, apart from the occasional walk with my wife. I loosely follow Stronglifts 5x5: http://stronglifts.com/5x5/ I wish it had been around years ago when I was first into working out.

    Yeah, it causes me a few issues now in various joints. But I need to try.
