Weigh-In | 11.22.10

Alright - here we go! 

I pulled it together and finished with a loss this week!  I lost 2.4 lbs.  Soooooo, I lost MORE than I gained last week!  Score!  :)  Total weight-loss:  26.5 lbs.!

I went to the doctor today.  No stress fracture.  Just a torn ligament and burscitis.  I'm not to run on it until pain subsides.  In fact, he recommended just walking.  He said that it burns fat better.  He said that running burns more glycogen than fat.  Mmmmkay, well, running burns more calories than walking.  I'm starting to look into this.......if anyone has any feedback or a good source - please share! 

Well, I don't have much more - I hope you liked my Thanksgiving Tactics.  So far, the plan is in place and I'm adhering to it.  Again, I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Smart Doctor. True: Walking (especially uphill:engages butt muscles) is better for fat loss. Running burns more calories (at the moment) but it also breaks down lean body mass (beautiful fat torching, hard earned and hard working active muscle tissue!). The more lbm you have, the more calories you'll burn, even at rest, so you don't want to lose that! Low intensity for distance (walking, stepmill (slow)) and longer times, and a day or two of interval training, paired with a few days a week of resistance circuit training will get you where you want to be much faster! That said, nutrition is about 80% of your weight loss goals, so make sure you're getting the right nutrients in to fuel your body, give you energy and fuel your fitness goals. You can't workout if you've got no energy! :)

    I'm not sure how, but I stumbled upon your page and I was intrigued! I love what you're doing! I actually set up a blog for a past client of mine to track her progress and 'blog herself accountable' and she lost over 40 pounds! She's taking time off right now because of her pregnancy (her choice to take time off).

    Proud of your effort and I wish you the very best in your pursuits!

    Let me know if you have any questions!
