Just to throw this out there:

The average healthy person wakes up between 25-35 times a night. Waking up is of course different than regaining conciousness.

I just find that fact to be very interesting.

Depending on your instructor and what you do in the class it can REALLY help.

I took a course for several months called Power Yogalates which was a really intense yoga/pilates class that lasted 1 hour and 15 minutes. Rather than focusing on meditation, it was really just an exercise class.

I would be exhausted 15 minutes into it and feel like jello the next day. I really recommend pilates based on that.

There is the option of buying a notebook and just writing in that. Same thing, without the public viewing.

absmith, you’re actually wrong. It has a wrist strap that monitors your sleep. There is a direct correlation between movement in your wrist and sleeping so that is how it tracks your sleep. It’d be kind of silly to just see if you “move” to see if you’re sleeping since when you are sleeping you move… a lot.

Gimmicky supplements won’t help, but have you looked at your nutrition in general? I started eating a lot less when I took good vitamins and a protein powder, and my guess is that I was previously overeating because my body was desperately trying to get nutrients it was missing.

Anyone have any opinions in regards to grass-fed beef versus grain-fed beef? From a nutrition stand-point, grass-fed beef (depending on the cut) is supposedly as lean as skinless chicken, making it a nice lean protein alternative.

I’m curious in regards to peoples thoughts re: taste

Jexxer, I totally don’t understand about the fat cell thing. So, I’m 22 and can’t lose my fat cells? Or can I? Or if I do, they will come back no matter what? If I’m under 20 they won’t?

The lemon juice thing? Does that REALLY work? Because I LOVE putting a lemon in my water when I go to a restaurant, but I don’t really do it at home, but if it works I’ll start today! Ha ha!

You sound like you on the right path KL!

google maps also has a ‘walking’ option, probably not available everywhere, but it might show up. under ‘get directions’, look for a drop down that says “by car” and “walking”

hmm, I don’t take anything. I’m new to working out. I realized what a fat ass I had become and how hot I had once been and want to be again one day. Ha ha!

Anyway, since I’m new to all of this, maybe one of you can fill me in on why your taking supplements and maybe if I should or not. They’re not bad are they, like steroids? I don’t want to take anything bad. I don’t even take a vitamin!

I’m thinking of going to a pilates class at my gym, but I don’t want to waste my time. Anyone know if its all hype or does doing pilates really help to tone you up?

Do you have an iPhone 3G? if so use this app: RunKeeper ($9.99) ref link

There is a free app called GPS Tracker that will give you similar results without all the run specific Data like current mile pace…

No iPhone? Use google maps to Get Directions : see link at bottom of this post.

You can right-click to keep adding new destinations to give you something close to your route.
Challenge: Google assumes your using roads so you can’t map a shortcut through the woods.

Hope this helps

copy:paste google maps url:

I’m late – but oh well. You can’t spot reduce, so just burn as much fat off your body as possible.

I have the same problem, well kind of. I have a “mommy pouch”. I wish I could just do a bunch of sit-ups and it would go away but I can’t. I have to burn that fat off.

So just do a lot of cardio, EAT RIGHT and give it time.

Compound exercises are really good to try (something I just learned my self actually). Isolation exercises just work one muscle, while compound will work more than one, so try doing more compound exercises.

@CeeA: These are what I’m referring to. I probably won’t get them anytime soon since the clicker isn’t iPhone compatible (plus the $$), but they may be a good option for an iPod user. My wife just purchased the Skullcandy Inkd headphones since they were so cheap.

My DH (internet slang for hubby) just got this one:
Garmin Forerunner 205 Runners Watch

He waited two months or so after he started running just to make sure he was serious about it and going to stick with it. He’s had the watch for a week and LOVES it! He said it’s really helping him out.

He is a numbers guy and loves all of the data he can get about his runs. If you are not like that, you might do just as well w/ a stopwatch, or even just walking out the door and running!

this is the beginner workout i am doing: http://www.realjock.com/workout/1057

i did body for life several years ago, and got some good results, but overall it was just a little too complicated for me. i like this plan because it slowly gets you used to working out in a gym, starting with the less complicated exercises and moving on to the more complicated stuff like splits later.

i am not following it “to a t”, for example i am swimming on the cardio-only days, but it is a good guide line for me to start with.

i also like the plans at realjock because there are 3 different 12-week plans, each progressing over the last, so i think i will be challenging myself for a good while.

there are also lots of workouts here on gynimee. i think the most important thing is to pick something and stick to it.

good luck!
