I will learn how to relax and take time for me; becoming healthy is a goal that I will set for myself...... I am worth it!! I graduated from college as an RN 2 years ago at the ripe age of 40 and am now discovering who I am --- besides being a wife, mother, daughter and sister. I have to learn to take care of me, FIRST!!!

Hi! I saw your comment about being confused on the dailySpark blog this morning.

It sounds to me like the trainer at the gym has fallen for the hype of the fat-burning zone. I would say, doing what you did that first month worked better. I think it's important to rest between cardio workouts. I have read that doing cardio every other day is best--I usually try to alternate cardio and strength training. I'll do a video workout (like the ones here on SP) for cardio, then the next day, strength training on upper body muscles, then walk the next day, and then do strength training lower body. Every now and then, I do core/abs workouts, but I like to do those to videos rather than just lie there and try and do crunches.

All that being said ('cause i do get wordy) I'm not an expert or anything, these suggestions are based solely on what has worked for me.
