Under Construction For 2019




I am 57 yrs old and married 14 yrs (on 3 Jan '19) to my best friend. I also have a 17 yr old daughter, Amber. I guess I did everything late in life-my first marriage and my first & only child,all in my 40's.

*************************************
I'm a vegetarian, South Beacher. It works for me.

***************************************

I have a heart rate monitor. I absolutely love it! I know exactly how many calories I'm burning. And I have found this chart to be helpful:

From Bodybuilding.com
ZONE 1--50-60%=Very easy to easy
ZONE 2--60-70%=Easy to somewhat hard
ZONE 3--70-80%=Somewhat hard to hard
ZONE 4--80-90%=Hard to very hard
ZONE 5--90-100%=Maximum, all out effort


Zone 1 = 3-7 calories per minute
Zone 2 = 7-12 calories per minute
Zone 3 = 12-17 calories per minute
Zone 4 = 17-20 calories per minute
Zone 5 = 20+ calories per minute

Fat is burned differently in each of the heart zones. You'll burn a different ratio of fat to carbohydrates in each of the heart zones. And once you've crossed over the exercise intensity threshold called the "anaerobic threshold," you are burning no additional fat, though you still burn fat. That's because oxygen has to be present for fat to burn. If there's no additional oxygen present, there's no additional fat burned during this period. However, don't confuse this with meaning that you won't lose body fat in higher zones. Another factor that results from training in these zones is a reduction in body fat, such as an elevated metabolism over time caused by muscular breakdown and/or increased muscle mass, which raises the metabolism.

There are four ways to achieve a caloric deficit:

1. Eat less.
2. Increase your activity.
3. Elevate your basal metabolic rate.
4. All of the above - also known as "Cardio Alone Won't Work"

    *~~~*~~~* emoticon *~~~*~Life is To Short~*~~~* emoticon *~~~*~~~*

    *Life is to short:
    "To spend your precious time trying to convince a person
    who wants to live in gloom and doom instead.
    Give lifting that person your best shot,
    but dont hang around long enough
    for his or her bad attitude to pull you down.
    Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people. "

    Life is to short:
    "To waste time worrying about what people think of you.
    Hold on to the ones that care, in the end they will be the only ones there"

    Life is to short:
    "For grudges as they are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can.
    Apologize when you should and let go of what you can."

    ~~*~~Be positive, caring, loving to others and yourself....
    Life is to short to live it any other way~~*~~
