Exercise is hard!

Well I got on the treadmill again today. I'm actually really happy that I've moved from just dieting to exercise too. My Mio Alpha has helped, it's fun to track my calories burned while I work out, it's great motivation.
Just for my own records, my treadmill exercise is currently one mile at 3.5 mph. At my current weight I burn nearly 400 calories doing this. I cool down with some light weights, and I'm over 400 calories by the time I get through a few reps of simple upper body weights. This is pretty sustainable for me since I have the treadmill and weight bench in my office, so I'm hopeful that I'll be able to keep this up. As I get more fit I'll just increase the angle of the treadmill to keep it challenging.
