Congrats Manny - hope all is going well so far!
I absolutely agree with what Andy said:
"DO WHAT YOU ENJOY As a personal trainer I see people on a daily basis that come into the gym and FORCE themselves to climb up on a treadmill. I would just simply ask yourself,... What can I do for fun..., or that I would enjoy, that would get my body moving a little bit?"
For several years until just recently I had a little weight gain from insulin - not too much, but I definitely had 20 lbs to spare. I found that when I was going to the gym (and therefore needing less insulin) the weight would fall off. But I could never stick to a workout schedule for more than a couple weeks, I'd get more resistant to insulin, and the weight would come back.
A couple months ago I started commuting to and from work on my bike and really found a great workout. I started slow but before I knew it I was riding 11 miles each way and going for another ride when I got home. I didn't think I enjoyed cycling and I certainly didn't think of myself as an athlete, but in less than 4 months I'm in the best shape of my life and I'm training to ride a century in August, something I never thought I'd do!
If you're able to bike the distance from home to work (or bike to and from public transportation) it's really a great way to make time for exercise - even if it takes you 45 minutes longer to get home from work, how much time would you spend driving home then to the gym? And cycling is a fantastic workout - pretty low impact, but wait till you see what it does to your thighs!
And another bonus - I haven't bought gas in a month and a half and by the time I get home I almost forget that I've been at work all day!
