A very similar routine seems to be working for me as well. About six months ago I switched to 8/16 intermittent fasting, but that wasn't really much of a change for me as I always have gone a while between my last and first meal of the day. The bigger change was starting to walk. About June 15 I started to do it every day and have lost twenty pounds in the four months since after a two year plateau.... so it works whether it's the diet, exercise, or both. I do two ten minute sessions using the glider, resistance bands, and dumbbells. I walk twenty or twenty-five minutes on my two 'off' days and thirty-five minutes to an hour the other five. I try to get in a 5k once a week now and have actually been able to do a few jog/run intervals as well. We have an indoor mall that I hit on bad weather days, so I don't have any excuses. My goal is to get the total time under an hour a day on average and still see results.

Sounds like it works for you as well Bill, so stick with it and add productive years. Beats sitting on the couch waiting for the grim reaper.

It has been a goal of mine to get my heart rate up when I walk. Today I did that. I walked 45 minutes and got my heart rate up to a peak rate for 2 minutes ( high of 151). I did 20 minutes at cardio rate and 23 minutes at fat burn. I did this by running and jogging part of my walk. That got my rate up quite well. My reward is that it felt really good. I worked up a sweat and am glad I have my own office not shared with anyone else.

Yesterday I did my strength training and finished 3 "circuits." I did that in 18 minutes. Prior to that, it took me 22 minutes. I will be adding another circuit into my routine starting next week.
