Lately I have been trying to walk most of my yards even though my velke is hanging there waiting to be used! I do this because its better exercise than just standing on the velke and sometimes after riding a big yard, My feet get stiff from just standing there! I need to drop around 15lbs and they say walking is one of the best ways to drop excess weight? I can do this right now cause its not too busy, but I doubt I could get them all done without riding during peak times. I also try to set the hydros fairly quick so I do get a good workout. Anyone else doing this? I wonder how long it will take to burn the extra weight? I have also switched from regular coke to diet Mtn. Dew, Diet coke tastes like crap but the diewt mtn. dew tastes just like regular dew I think and still has the caffiene which I need! A doc told me that one 12oz. coke is equal to 15 sugar cookies!!! I couldnt believe that! sugar will put the weight on very fast.
