Im glad to hear your meeting new people,I am going to start a workout plan next week I know youve posted before about the intervals you do point me in the right direction I have a treadmill Im just lost as to where to begin Im going to dig through your archives and see what I find. hope you have a fabulous weekend and check my blog out monday Ill be posting pictures and my plan to attack the fat.
Okay walk at a slower than maximum pace... for me that is 3.0-3.3 ish depending on how I feel. But I'm short. A maximum walk for me is 3.7Then you want to alternate between 0 incline and whatever you think is the highest you can maintain ... right now I'm doing a 9. The key is to do it for 60 minutes. It took me a couple weeks to work up to that. I think 5 - 60 minute walks alternating the incline every 1/8 mile (that's how I do it since it's easy to track for me... that's 2.5 minutes or so). As I went along I changed up the inclines to keep it interesting... but the key is to go from 0 to the highest... so that you have to work harder to adjust each time.
I can totally relate to your weight loss comments. I hate to tell you but only gets harder with age. I'm (gasp) 43 and it's so much harder than when I was in my 30ss. Sucks! We just have to work harder. We CAN do it; it's a matter of WANTING to do it.
OK, I have two questions for your expert opinion:1. 75 minutes? really? that hurts. I am running between 15 and 20 miles a week but NEVER over 65 minutes at a time. what you think? Should I switch things around? hmmm...2. I am having a really hard time eating healthy at night as hubby is out of town during the week for 6 freakin weeks. Suggestions? I end up being STARVING after the kids go to bed and eating a bowl of cereal and 1/2 a chocolate bar. Dairy though, right ;)Thanks for your thoughts Mrs. F. You DO sound more settled and content, actually.
Gooddog,If you are running for 65 minutes that's pretty damn good. I guess it all depends on what you are trying to achieve. I'm going for 75 because I know at the end of the week I won't get in as many days as I would like... and this way I still get in the hours I wanted. Plus I find once I get past 60 I can keep going. For me minutes 20-45 are the roughest and then the endorphins start kicking in. As long as I have good TV to watch I can stay on.As for night eating that is my downfall too. I'll be back...
oh thanks for the advice I am really excited and cant wait to start ask me again monday evening I may not feel the same way.
Re: Night EatingMy best advice for this is to account for it ahead of time. I stay up late and honestly do get hungry... I had no problem losing or maintaining while eating at night as long as I keep what I eat in mind. I usually eat an additional 300 calories after the kids go to bed. I push it back as far as I can by eating gum immediately after dinner... otherwise I'm tempted to eat consistently from dinner until bed. Once the kids are in bed I typically have a "dessert" (hot cocoa & a chocolate) and then later I'll have an instant oatmeal. I actually eat a smaller dinner to give myself more calories at night.
