JUNE 10

EXERCISE 33 MIN AEROBICS. THAT PILATES BALL WILL BE USED MORE SINCE I FOUND OUT THAT I WILL NOT FALL ON MY FACE FROM IT.

EXPERT SOLUTIONS:METABOLISM MISTAKES

1 – What is a better choice than diet pills? BETTER FOOD CHOICES, AND SPACING OUT MEAL DURING THE DAY.

2 – Why is (severely) restricting calories such a ‘bad’ thing? EATING TOO FEW CALORIES MAKES IT HARDER TO LOSE WEIGHT, SLOWS YOUR METABOLISM, CAUSES YOUR BODY TO LOSE MUSCLE AND AFFECT YOUR ORGANS.

3 – What should be ‘focused’ on in order to lose weight? NUTRITION, FITNESS, SLEEP, STRESS MANAGEMENT, THEY ALL WORK TOGETHER IN HELPING YOUR BODY FUNCTION AT HIGHER LEVELS.

    Woohoo on those veggies and fruit! That's pretty darned impressive! And sounds like you got in a fantastic full-body workout as well! As for the bike (or the treadmill) - I don't have to say anything - the family looks at the sweat, the fierce expression and the legs moving: they just kinda disappear and ask the question later. :)

Cheers,
Maya

3 – How are ‘walking shoes’ designed? THESE SHOES ARE STIFFER . THEY PROVIDE MORE SUPPORT SINCE YOUR FOOT ROLLS FROM HEEL TO TOE.

4 – How are ‘cross training shoes’ designed? THE MOST VERSATILE SHOE. THEY GIVE YOU MORE SUPPORT AND CHANGES IN DIRECTION AND IMPACT.

    Neato. I'd keep the walking shoes, too, unless they're all worn out - you may prefer those for the days you just want to walk! :)

Great blog - love that you're getting in so many veggies! :)

Cheers,

NOW TO DIG SOME DIRTY ON MY HD. I TOLD HIM I WOULD WRITE IN MY BLOG IF HE TEMPTED ME IN ANY WAY. HE SAID HE DID NOT CARE THAT NONE OF YOU KNEW HIM. WELL MY FRIEND ANNETTE KNOWS SOME OF EXPERIENCE WITH MY HD AND HIS COOKIES ETC. HE ALWAYS IS THE ONE WHO BRINGS IN THE JUNK. I AM NOT SURE IF HE IS FEELING INFERIOR BECAUSE I AM TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT AND LOOKING HEALTHIER, AND FEELING BETTER. NO I DID NOT HAVE A COOKIE AND I DID HAVE A CHICKEN WING WHEN IT WAS NOT PLANNED ON MY MEAL FOR THE NIGHT. BECK WOULD SAY YOU CAN EITHER EAT DIFFERENTLY THEN OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE NOT WATCHING THEIR WEIGHT AND REMAIN HEAVY OR YOU CAN SAY NO TO EATING EXTRA FOOD.. WELL I STUMBLED. BUT I WILL TRY HARDER NEXT TIME. I ONLY WENT 40 CALS OVER IN CAL RANGE.

I AM IMAGINING THAT THIS COMPUTER IS MY HD FOR NOT BEING MORE SUPPORTIVE (NOT THAT I WOULD DIE OR ANYTHING I HE DOESN'T AND MOST OF THE TIME HE IS IN THE NEGATIVE--I DON'T NEED HIM TO BOOST ME UP I CAN DO THAT MYSELF WITH THE HELP OF GOD.)
