For Fat Burning-Just Keep Moving!!! Go For Time Instead Of Distance Or Intensity
Members Were Sparked
No matter what type cardio I am doing-I just keep moving...even if I have to slow it down from a jog to a very slow walk. I started going for time (one hour) instead of distance or intensity. I tell myself to be the last one on the track. Often i get a second wind a can jog more later on
Once I started doing over an hour of cardio (running/walking/jogging) I started seeing a difference around my waistline.

Don't do the exact same exercise for the exact same time and intensity every day. Vary the times and intensities and even activity. Your body is smart and if you do the same thing all the time your body efficiently burns fewer calories for the same time and intensity than it did before.
Keep track of your type of exercise, and times but also your intensity level, hard, moderate, easy, is a simple one to start with and you will see the numbers on the scale go down!! 192244
When I hit a plateau, I reread information to make sure I'm doing things correctly, I recheck measurements , I alternate cardio with intensity, incline and distance, measure food I record instead of eyeballing, and I keep going with SparkPeople !
