Mandalin and Serera, thank you thank you thank you.
Serena, i was away working out! I "joined the February BootCamp chanllege" thread. I am taking it serious and workout like crazy all thru this month. Its not easy, I have to talk myself into it every day. I'm doing Slim N Six, and then some kind of extra cardio for a total of 60-100 minutes a day.
I have been reading and now hearing that we really need do need 60 minutes cardio MOST days. Although I would say to anyone, at least do SOMETHING, but strive for more. I caught this DR OZ on Oprah today after work and he said what I knew all along, most adults who do exercise, do not do enough!
When I lost 50 pounds in 4.5 months, 20 years ago, I walked, hard 5 miles a day, 5 days a week. It melted off. I again gained after my daughter was born. Again I worked out hard, aerobics 2 days a week and walked on treadmill 60 min. a day 5-6 days a week, I was 31 and again it melted off.
Well, now I'm 43 now, and have gained and lost the same twenty for about 5-6 years now. I know if I only got off my butt for 30 min. 3 days a week, it would be a joke (maybe it works for some of you) but my body would laugh at me!
To be really really honest? I was posting on a thread I took to, and when one of the girls was feeling down and not feeling like working out, I was trying to motivate her and told her (in a nice way) to try to push thru it.
The next day she never posted back and then another girl on the thread said we were not all here to loose it too quickly and its ok to take it easy and
and don't Feel bad if you don't want to work out. I was a little stunned. I never put her down, I was trying to be a cheerleader. She already was on a good roll with loosing weight. I was left confused as to what people want here.
After thinking about this for a long time now, I thought well, everyones different, we can have a Pity Party
side, and we can have a give me an "Encouraging, Push me, challange me side"
I beg to be pushed. I don't want to work out, please make me though, and I will thank you for it! I want to be fit and healthy for life!!!!!!!-thank you.
