Under Construction For 2019




I am 57 yrs old and married 14 yrs (on 3 Jan '19) to my best friend. I also have a 17 yr old daughter, Amber. I guess I did everything late in life-my first marriage and my first & only child,all in my 40's.

*************************************
I'm a vegetarian, South Beacher. It works for me.

***************************************

I have a heart rate monitor. I absolutely love it! I know exactly how many calories I'm burning. And I have found this chart to be helpful:

From Bodybuilding.com
ZONE 1--50-60%=Very easy to easy
ZONE 2--60-70%=Easy to somewhat hard
ZONE 3--70-80%=Somewhat hard to hard
ZONE 4--80-90%=Hard to very hard
ZONE 5--90-100%=Maximum, all out effort


Zone 1 = 3-7 calories per minute
Zone 2 = 7-12 calories per minute
Zone 3 = 12-17 calories per minute
Zone 4 = 17-20 calories per minute
Zone 5 = 20+ calories per minute

Fat is burned differently in each of the heart zones. You'll burn a different ratio of fat to carbohydrates in each of the heart zones. And once you've crossed over the exercise intensity threshold called the "anaerobic threshold," you are burning no additional fat, though you still burn fat. That's because oxygen has to be present for fat to burn. If there's no additional oxygen present, there's no additional fat burned during this period. However, don't confuse this with meaning that you won't lose body fat in higher zones. Another factor that results from training in these zones is a reduction in body fat, such as an elevated metabolism over time caused by muscular breakdown and/or increased muscle mass, which raises the metabolism.

There are four ways to achieve a caloric deficit:

1. Eat less.
2. Increase your activity.
3. Elevate your basal metabolic rate.
4. All of the above - also known as "Cardio Alone Won't Work"

    We flash them, we smash them.
    We push them way up.
    We shake them, we stuff them
    In the wrong sized cup.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Our boyfriends/husbands just crave them,
    Our children have drained them.
    Some of us have even decided to name them.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    We go through our lives and knock them about.
    But one thing is certain, one thing I must SHOUT!
    Our boobies have been there through thick and through thin,
    And life is too precious to let cancer win!

    Happy are they who take life day by day, complain very little,
    and are thankful for the little things in life.

    So, for one minute, walk outside,stand there in silence,
    Look up at the sky, and contemplate just how amazing life is.
