Answer to last question:
• Warm up
These five components of fitness should be included in your own fitness program. To be considered fit, you need to meet certain standards in each of these five areas, which include 1- body composition (your weight, fat mass, lean muscle mass, and fat distribution), 2- aerobic fitness (ability to sustain moderate-intensity activity for extended periods of time), 3- flexibility (the range of motion of several joints), 4- muscular strength (maximum amount of force you can perform with a single contraction), and 5- muscular endurance (ability to repeat high-intensity muscle contractions). While warm-ups aren't part of the 5 components of fitness, they should be part of your workouts. You should warm-up before aerobic, strength, and flexibility exercises.

To learn more about all five components of fitness, check out Fitness Resource Center.

Morning workouts are for "Morning People", which I definitely am not!! LOL I do prefer mid-to-late-morning for all my exercising. It works for me.

Answer from this past week:

A and B only
Being physically active can boost your metabolism and eating at regular intervals can help prevent your body from storing calories you eat as fat. It's wise to eat moderate, not low, amounts of carbohydrates and healthy fats. Eating more protein than your body needs can result in fat storage—any type of calorie (from protein, fat or carbs) can be stored as fat.

How do you feel about morning workouts?

They're difficult, but worth it

I love the walking videos. Today I did the Leslie Sansone Walk to the Hits...Fast paced with good music. It is a 3 mile workout and has the HIIT intervals where you really increase the speed and momentum and then back off.
