Twice in the past three day's I've read things online that have left me feeling frustrated with expert advice and the feeling that I've been sabotaged by those who say they are known professionals and are out to help me. The first one, I played right into their hands and went out and bought an Almond Joy because it looked so good [the texture] the article was on "Motivation" but they put a candy bar with a close up shot at the top of the article?
Hello, food porn does not help motivate me, but sabatoged my day!
Then last night I was feeling really good about my increased level of activity and read this: That unless our exercise brings the heart rate up higher than a resting heart rate [by, I think it was like 60 to 80%] that it's not counted as exercise?
I'm sorry, but if I'm making myself MOVE [get up from my chair] and move more than normal ..rather I break into a sweat or not, it's exercise at this weight!!!
Frankly, I give myself 10 minutes a day credit for activity if I'm cleaning and cooking and doing chores around here.. BECAUSE I AM NOT ordering my meals out [like we use to do to avoid cooking and clean up].
(NO, I don't say 30 minutes or an hour but only 10 minutes no matter how long I take, I figure I maynot be Speedy Gonzales but it's movement & I'm building up more energy & strength every day I do more and more around my own house!)
Since I started tracking fitness minutes, I've also added dancing and exercise, but I don't do it every day, I try for 3 day's a week ..sometimes I get more or less in.
The truth is, I started out tracking my home cooked meals [prep time and washing dishes] so we would eat out less. I don't like skinny people telling me that I'm not working out, tell my body that when it hurts.
