General Health/Exercise Question
Here's something I've been wondering about: exercise. Since I'm at college, there's a pretty snazzy new-ish gym available for my use free of charge whenever I feel like it. I go when I have the chance, and it's pretty neat.
What I'm wondering is this: is going to the gym at all better than nothing, or do you have to go on a frequent, consistent basis to do any good? I know it's "advised" that people get something like 30 minutes of cardio a day to stay at optimum health, but does an hour one a week do anything, or just serve to placate my "OH GOD I'M A FAT AMERICAN" guilt? I'd do it even if it doesn't really serve a long-term purpose, because I feel like such a badass when I go. Nerdy girls don't get hot and sweaty in public very often.
