Strength training - muscle takes more calories to maintain than fat!

I've noticed that if my day is spent plowing through paperwork even if I've exercised vigorously that my sleep is affected.

There is no such thing as the final success in life. What is really meaningful is the courage to face the next minute, the next hour, the next day.

Strength training and being active throughout the day. My Fitbit helps to remind me if I'm sat down...

"Boosting" your metabolism has very, very little effect on your weight (from what I've studied about it, we're talking maybe a 100 calories/day difference - if you're lucky).

Strength training means more muscle which burns more throughout the day, but sounds like you've already got a good plan in place and are making progress - what are you hoping to achieve? Move movement throughout your day will probably have greater results than a lot of effort put into "boosting" your metabolism.....

Doing HIIT burns a lot of fat, if done at proper times

So many same subjects- faith, fitness and family that we write about each week.

I agree with the whole strength training school of thought.
But for me, the most important thing is to be somewhat active THROUGHOUT the day. So my workouts are important, but I undo it all if I spend the rest of the day sitting in my chair with a book. I try to move around frequently, and do things like walk to get groceries, make a few trips up and down stairs to get household chores done, stand at the counter to do paperwork. I am retired, so I am able to break up my day however I want. (Lucky me!)

I eat 3 meals a day, nothing in between,
and especially nothing after dinner.
Good for me!

Maintenance Lessons Learned:
-go on with the healthy lifestyle learned in weight loss phase
-just add healthy foods gradually to stop losing
-work out every day - 30-60 minutes is enough to maintain weight and good mood
-do not try to balance overeating by extreme workouts, it is not going to work
-avoid overeating, instead of satisfaction you get stronger cravings

Strength training is by far one of the best routes to boosting your metabolism -you build muscle and the more muscle you have, the more energy your body needs to maintain it, thus the increase in your metabolism.

HIIT training is supposed to be another good option to boost your metabolism (and something to do on your days between strength training days). Although all forms of cardio have their own differing effects on your metabolism.

There are other supposed ways of boosting your metabolism: IE - there are reports that drinking 16oz of water when you wake kickstarts your metabolism, eating breakfast boosts your metabolism, drinking green tea boosts your metabolism, eating spicy foods boosts your metabolism, caffeine boosts your metabolism, etc. Although I think all the above listed "tricks" are more temporary boosters than permanent that you'd see from strength training.

I am exercising, staying as busy as I can (to stop those bored hands from raiding the kitchen) drinking water, I've cut alcohol down, sleeping well and I have increased my fibre levels too!
I love strength training and generally being active as long as I have my headphones I'm happy. Is there any other ways to boost metabolism?
I need to work on sleep patterns so I can wake up earlier though.
