Robin, you got a decent amount of exercise in this past week despite your arthritis pain. Of course, one thing you need to be careful of with dog walking is the start-stop pattern that occurs with a dog that likes to sniff around a lot! I know that’s the case with my dog. In order for you to get a true cardio workout, you need to elevate your heart rate and keep it elevated throughout the duration of your session.

Although you believe your heart rate is up, I would suggest you find out for sure. Halfway through your workout, take your pulse at your wrist — count the number of beats in 10 seconds and then multiply by six to get the number of beats per minute. Compare the number to your resting heart rate. Let me know what the counts are next week.

As you say, try to get in some more bicycling sessions, aiming for at least five workouts (a mix of walking and cycling) this week. Try not to look back with regret at past weeks during which you missed opportunities to exercise. Instead of dwelling on what you could have, should have or would have done, focus on what you can do now. With patience and persistence the weight will come off.
