No success? Try working out at intervals! You can spend hours on the treadmill, but after twenty minutes, you stop burning fat and START burning muscle! Yikes. Instead, do intense cardio for one minute and then slow it down for another minute until your twenty minutes is up; it burns more fat that way, anyway!
I found this little gem through http://www.everydayhealth.com/ and it has helpful hints that you can combine with your Spark advice.
A Way to Help Me Keep Track of the Sparkrecipes I Have Tried!
I have 8 Sparkrecipe cookbooks. I like to comment on the recipes in my private cookbooks so I will remind myself of helpful hints like what special ingredients others used that would help my hiatal hernia. I found if I DID NOT comment on a recipe that meant I have not tried it yet and that IS HELPFUL TO ME in keeping track of which recipes I have tried and which still remain to be tried!
I have been on a weight loss journey for 4 years. In that time, I have received "helpful" hints from folks...during that time, people have basically insulted me or disregarded all of the work I have done to lose all of the weight I have lost...In pursuit of my goals I always make sure to tell people to do what works for them...not what works for me...have faith, don't give up and be proud of who you are. Don't waste your time trying to be someone else.
