Riding My Stationary Bike

A couple of months ago, I bought a stationary bike using my blogging money. I noticed that I've been gaining weight and also both of my knees are now having arthritis. I can hardly walk after sitting in front of my laptop for a few hours. If I squat, it's hard for me to stand up because I can feel pain in both of my knees. Oh my, this must be sign of aging??? Yaks! I used to exercise everyday when I was in Texas because I have a treadmill, stationary bike and a power rider there. Here I don't have any of those because I can't take it with me when we moved here. Thus, no exercise and the result, I gained weight.

The stationary bike I bought has an LCD and I can monitor my speed, time and how many calories I burned. This afternoon, I rode my bike for 30 minutes and it made me sweat. I felt so good after that. The previous days, I rode for 25 to 30 minutes. Next time I wish to prolong my time riding it. I just need a determination to ride it often so I can lose those excess pounds. I want to be slim again. I can't afford to change my wardrobe if I become bigger.
