I would like to give credit, when due, to the person I saw in a Blog. A specific line she used to describe how she assessed her current progress. I cannot seem to find her Blog! But the line seems appropriate for me now: "I am a lying liar that lies"!! I say this because I said, to myself, I was going to increase the intensity and duration of my workouts. After stepping onto the scale this morning I see where I found that 3#'s again I lost last week!! In fact it is the same 3#'s that keeps acting like a Yo-Yo for the past 3 months I am putting in the time but not the intensity that is required on a consistent basis. But to give myself credit, I still have maintained a 60 to 63#'s lost in that Yo-Yo period.
Having shoulder injuries, rotator cuff, in both arms has really hampered my strength exercises. I know strength is what builds the metabolism furnace that burns calories at rest but I have to find other ways to compensate. NancyAnne, a SparkFriend, told me how it really is and to quit re-injuring my shoulders by ignoring rest and the exercises that cause the problem. That was a couple of months ago and no improvement yet. So I need to step up my cardio "BIG-TIME" to compensate for lack of Strength exercise and get the calorie burn!!
So to be a Truthful" person and not a "Lying liar that lies" person I need to put my money where my mouth is.
I have joined another team to help with the intensity, duration, and consistency. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i

Interact with SparkTeams & read articles.
I know, for me, every plan need to have some flexibility built into my goals. Just like my calories and nutrition has "ranges" my goal need to have these ranges as well. I need these ranges in order to not to be a "Lying liar that lies". So I will initially set my range at 75%-100%. I will adjust my exercise program by adding or subtracting as my condition improves.
With this Blog done....now I have to go WorkOut!!!!
