Fat Burning Zone?
I didn’t hear this term until last week and it made me smile at first because it didn’t seem to make sense, but then I found out tons of people think you must exercise within a “fat burning zone” in order to burn the optimum amount of fat. This is false. Working at just above half of your maximum heart rate is known as a “low intensity” work out. It...
Calorie Myth #2
Myth: Exercising on an empty stomach burns more fat and calories. Truth: This might seem like it would make sense, but after extensive testing and years of research, Exercise Physiologist Brad Schoenfield, CSCS discovered that even though your body will burn more calories during exercise, it will balance itself out by adjusting to burn less fat after exercise.

To everyone who left a suggestion on my last post about what I should use as a reward for my 180 pound mark.

You all are awesome people and I’m really happy to see everyone making progress....

I Don't Want A Thigh Gap...
I just want to be able to wear a skirt or dress and not wind up chaffed and raw after an afternoon of walking around.
is tomorrow… I can’t wait, especially since I have a trip to New Zealand soon. I want to look semi-decent on the beaches. :)
You didn’t post what I had in my queue for this morning.
whatareyoureallyhungryfor-deact asked: Your progress even now is impressive! Congratulations on setting out on this journey- you have the kind of attitude that will see you through. I also love your personal philosophy page :)

Found the Cutest Skirt and Jeans...
