ugh. i know the feeling. i've been obsessing about 3 pounds for the past 3-4 weeks. and this is what the trainer told me: do intervals... that means that you intensify your exercise for a minute or two several times during a half hour. and increase the time by 5 minutes at a time over a week.
so, for my 35 minutes on the exercise bike, i start at level 3 and about 70 rpms. every 5 minutes or so, i go to 100 rpms for a minute, and then drop down to 70 again. the third round, i generally bump it up to level 4 and keep going...
i THINK it has worked, but i'm not sure they're really gone... i think they're just hiding...
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
