You can measure your heart rate by counting the number of beats on the pulse point in your wrist or neck for ten seconds, then multiply by 6. Your training heart rate is as fast as you can exercise and still talk comfortably to a person standing next to you. Ask Dr. Weeks if you would like a heart rate monitor watch ($55)

Note: this is time for you to take care of yourself so that you will survive to eventually be able to take care of others! Remember, in the event of a loss of cabin pressure, put the oxygen mask on yourself before you put one on your child. You aren’t much good to people if you are dead. Factors related to obesity kill people more than any other single illness.
