I need the gym. It's "me" time for me too. Plus, last winter, my gym closed a couple times due to snow. I told myself it'd be okay, I've got a treadmill. I can just hop on that. Never happened. I workout at least five times a week. I have no problem doing a full workout at the gym, but if I stay at home, I either quit early or never start.View Thread
How much weight are you trying to lose? I agree that 150 is a great weight for 5'11". I am also that height, but I'm older and weight 15 - 20 pounds more than you do. It's really important what you feel when you're looking in the mirror, but there's only about a 15 pound range before you'd be considered underweight. Have you had your body fat% taken? Maybe all you really need to do is tone and build some muscle to achieve the results you're looking for.View Thread
Silly question - but would you sleep for that one hour lunch? I'm assuming it's in the middle of your day? Sleep is important, but if you wouldn't sleep at lunch, you might as well get your workout in. From the sounds of your day, when else would you be able to?View Thread
I don't see anything in the foods that she eats that give you enough information to know that she's eating less than 1200 calories a day. "Whatever mom makes for dinner" and cafeteria food, aren't very specific. Also don't note quantity. Making portions smaller, doesn't really state what the old or new portion is.
I would seriously recommend counting your calories. Measure and weigh what you eat instead of guess-timating. Find out how may calories you truly are consuming. Make sure you count liquid calories. Soda, milk, etc all count. Then see if you have room to move. You should not go below 1200 calories in a day. You risk not getting proper nutrients to fuel your body. Make sure your choices are "smart" choices. Who wants to only get 1200 calories and drink two sodas, blowing 400 of those calories.View Thread
I don't know. But if you figure, you being about the same height as me, your stride is about 2 to 3 feet. If you go on the short side to be conservative, that makes 6644 steps 13,288 feet. I believe there are 5,280 feet to a mile. Which would give you 2.52 miles in 6644 steps. Sounds pretty close to what your car gave you.View Thread
