new exercise

Thursday, August 26, 2010

i just tried zumba and loved it, it is a full body workout. one hour non stop of salsa and other dance moves, by the time the hour was over my hair was dripping and my shirt was wet, i am sure i got a good workout. i do zumba two times a week, and treadmill and weights the rest of the week, decided to add some new exercise because i have stoped losing. still need to lose 30 more pounds, has anyone else tried zumba or other types of exercise that are good to help you get going again.

    Try something different, eat different for one week, try a different exercise, go at a faster pace in your current choice of exercise, push yourself, challenge yourself and just maybe that will make a difference. Whatever you do, DO NOT GIVE UP!

    Loretta, it happens. Muscle weighs more than fat, and all you are going to do, starving yourself, is burn the wrong kind of energy, make yourself sick, and drive yourself to binge (as you've already seen). It's simple math: burn more than you take in, and you will lose. Make sure you're eating enough during the day (three meals and two snacks, six small meals, whatever floats your boat) to keep your blood sugar relatively constant and keep the hungries away. I am continually amazed at what I didn't know about what I've been eating--for one thing, that I was on the fast track to osteoporosis, because I wasn't consuming enough calcium--because I've spent my life around nutrition issues, coming from a family of diabetics, and now I'm one myself. If you know you're doing what you should be doing, ignore the scale, and pay attention to the wardrobe. I am starting to see cheekbones again, and definition in my midsection, and things I couldn't wear are now comfortable, even though the same number comes up on the scale every day--or more, if I'm retaining water. (I also discovered, thanks to the SPARK nutrition tracker, that I've been consuming more inherent sodium than I was aware of.)

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, CONGRATULATE YOURSELF FOR YOUR SUCCESSES, and one day, you will be pleasantly surprised by the scale, too. If it gets you down to weigh yourself every day, only do it once a week. But the scale isn't the only measure of achievement--so don't make it your be all and end all!

    I agree with MERLINANDME, what better way to beet the blues than a piping hot bowl of healthy soup and some wholemeal pasta in it or with some wholewheat bread. Light but filling.
FIll up with fruit too, like bananas.
Comfort eating can be a sign of SAD and if at all pos go for a walk in some greenery and come home to the soup, you'll feel lifted emoticon

    Try and get some light during the day - it can help stave off SAD which makes pople hungry and is generally horrid..!

    Make up some comforting batches of soups and freeze them in cup sized containers for the microwave. Soups made with pureed vegetables feel so filling. And vegetable soups with bits of pasta are soooo good in the winter. I buy a lot of canned soup in the winter, going for the low sodium kind.

    Nope, I haven't tried it, but let me know how you like it! I seem to be allergic to "some" chocolate and then not to others --it's strange -- but I'm willing to try it as I get those cravings too! So, let us know -- and hope it's fantastic -- just like you, Loretta! My special bud!
