This Sparked Me!

So, you're a runner, right? Well, go take a Zumba class! Or you're a swimmer? How about some spinning?!

Your body can settle into a groove if you do the same workout all the time... keep things interesting and you'll shock your body - and that shock will being about a change!

The same idea of shaking things up applies to your calorie intake. Try fluctuating your calories a little bit some days... or maybe up your protein... or up your carbs... go vegetarian for a few days... keep your body guessing, and you'll reap the benefits for sure!

    I have been adding some different things in this week to see if it helps. I know the body gets used to doing the same thing over and Im trying something new...

    I've added 5, 10 minute "sparks" of aerobic walking to my days. Pretty painless; for the first time in 4 years I'm 3# under goal! Metabolism boost? Most of these walks are in a 8 around my kitchen and living room!

    I agree. I started JM's 30-day shred and increased the intensity in my weight lifting routine.. and incrased my walking. I read in this board to cycle the calories from the high end to low end on a daily basis and the scale and inches have been dropping.

    I'm too uncoordinated for Zumba but I'll figure something out!
