    There is a world of difference between these two statements, and as Cat says all we have is your words to go on.

    Everyone would agree that you have to go out of your comfort zone, and actually put the effort in, but when talking about sustainability and maybe even common sense, the unfit and overweight should be gradually building up to an intense exercise program.

    Makes me laugh though, we are all horse people, can you imagine the row if someone suggested that the best way to take weight of their horse was to work it until it is dripping in sweat, and then do some more. When we are talking about horses we are (nearly) all agreed that lots of walking and trotting, starting with small amounts and building up is the way to improve fitness and take off weight. Well guess what, we are animals just the same and the same rules should apply to us.

    I don't push myself the way I should when I excersize. Although, when I go up my driveway, you'd have thought I ran a marothon!

    I replaced butter with cheese today. Is that "better"?

    A bit better girl! You can replace it with olive oil based margarine too, it has the heart & stroke foundation recommendation. I found a really good tasting soy cheese in both cheddar & mozza flavor, some taste nasty but this brand even fools my little granddaughter who is a mini cheese expert. It is these little changes that make a big difference.
    Katy, I love your posts, heart rate has to be elevated for a good period of time, that is the fat burning zone. When you feel the burn, that is the muscle building zone. This summer I was invited to a private gym for muai thai, the trainer gave me some excellent tips for avoiding nausea & premature fatigue before a workout. Eat a small amount of whole grains, a bit of protien and a bit of caffeine. So before I workout I have a slice of whole grain bread with a coffee & cream and a piece of turkey bacon. Wow, what a difference! After the workout, it's an apple or an avocado, for the rest of the day it feels like your batteries are charged. I know we all want to look good by being slender & fit, but the biggest benefit is how you feel. I feel strong, energetic and sleep so soundly, why would I not want to sustain this?
