What exactly am I burning?

It bugs me a little that when I’m on a treadmill or exercise bike, that I’m not burning exactly what they say.  It really hit me when I started using my brother’s exercise bike.  I could burn 700 calories in 40 minutes but it never asked me for my weight like our treadmill does.  Yesterday morning I did some research and found this great little article that helped ease my mind.  It’s short and quick and gives me the right mindset for what I’m burning while doing exercises on the machines.

Another short post because there is just not enough time in the day.  TV is completely out of the window nowa days unless it was like last night when my wife and I were in the hot tub, watching a half hour of a Biography program.  Life is so different now with activities and exercises and my mind has accepted it.  No, it has embraced it.  It really is a new life.
