    Hi there HDBIKER2012,

    Funny thing I found out about exercising...the more you do it, the more you want to do it.

    I am not an exercise nut..apologies ahead of time if I offended anyone ...but I really did not want to think about exercising.

    So I had to force myself to put on my tennis shoes and go for a walk...then the next day again...put on my tennis shoes and walk.

    I found that I felt so much better that I now look forward to going for my daily walk and have added time each day.

    Next step, lifting weights.

    OMGoodness...I'm actually enjoying lifting weights. <insert toning bicep>

    I think once you get over the dread, you may find yourself enjoying it.

    Hope so/ Good luck
    ~Stacy and all my typos :)
