11-22-2006, 08:47 PM
Lilliann, that's great that you've made the commitment to exercise -- welcome to this thread!!

mandalinn, I'm still around -- I just skipped yesterday because I didn't have much choice. I was working all day and didn't get home until 10pm, so I figured that would have to be my day off for the week. Ugh! I wanted to save my day off for the weekend when I'm out of town, but I'm hoping I can squeeze something in at my Mom's house.

today: 60 min 4-mile walk DVD

11-22-2006, 08:48 PM
Liliann - welcome! Absolutely you can join us to have accountability for your exercise! I find it really helprful to have a place where people are expecting me to post - makes me get out and just move!

November 6- 50 minutes on the treadmill.

11-23-2006, 11:55 AM

Does anyone know if it is better to eat before workout in the morning so you burn more fat or eat so your not so hungry after workout? Which is better to burn more fat?

11-27-2006, 02:17 AM
It is really hard to not pay attention to the scale but I put it in the car to have handy for our ladies group weigh ins at the gym on wednesdays. I am happy to not be able to weigh myself everyday and get depressed. I asked my son if he saw a difference today as I was looking in the mirror and he said, "yes, I see it in your waist." I was so happy!!

11-27-2006, 04:37 PM
yeah I'm stayin off the scale myself until I can see a noticable difference. I'ma just stay consistent with my eating and exercise.

todays exercise
*60 min walk*

11-27-2006, 05:10 PM
Hiya all! I've been MIA since vacation in September. (Costa Rica was fabulous, but I've been totally derailed ever since, though I have luckily only gained a few pounds back.) I'm starting small but getting back in the habit of visiting 3FC - I always stay way more honest with myself when I frequent these forums. :)

Anyway, I just finished doing 25 minutes of brisk walking and climbing the stairs here at work.

11-27-2006, 07:41 PM
I just read a great web site on eating before exercise in the morning; they have found a slight amount more fat grams burned if you don't eat before exercise in the morning, but not enough to make up more than a pound in a month compared to eating before exercise in the morning. They say it is more of a preference. I'm sticking with eating before exercise in the morning, that way I am not starving while working out or afterwards and eat the wrong things. http://www.apexfitness.com/html/nutrition/articles/toeat/ it is a great article also spoke about the intensity of the workout.

60 min on my friend the elliptical.

I love that thing so much. I always wanted to run but can't, at least not at this weight, because I have bad knees that can't take the pressure (heck, i doubt i'll be able to run much even at my goal weight - i've lost 80 lbs and still the darned things hurt when I do too much thumping on them). Elliptical makes me so happy! All the "running" motion with none of the horrible bone grinding impact.

11-29-2006, 01:19 PM
mandalinn, I love the elliptical too, and I never thought I'd want to run, but I've been getting into it. Unfortunately, I just sprained my knee yesterday and spent the evening in the emergency room. Ack!! I'm freaking out about the prospect of not doing cardio for a while and getting set back in my running. The pain is bad, but I'm more worried about not being able to work out!!! :(

11-30-2006, 01:10 AM
Oh, thats the worst! Heres for a quick recovery for you! In the meantime, my gym has this fabulous cardio machine where you sit and basically its like a stationary bike for your arms - I've seen people really get the cardio going on it! Rowing machines, too, can be done 1-legged.

50 min elliptical, 50 min UB/abs
