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"

    emoticon emoticon MY CHRISTMAS TREE WON'T GROW emoticon emoticon

    Today I bought my Christmas Tree, and took it home to decorate
    But...Oh No...My Christmas tree is much, much, too short!
    Oh my, What can I do? My Christmas tree won't grow!
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I played it a Christmas Carol, and even sang it a Christmas Carol.
    I fed it pumpkin pie, gave it some hot chocolate, even a piece of chocolate
    Have I done something wrong, because my Chrismas Tree still won't grow!
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    So I ran it a bath, with lots of herbs and salts
    I dipped it in the water, and I prayed and hoped
    I waited and waited, Then when I pulled it out
    I measured it once, I measured it twice, and I measured it again.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon .., emoticon ... emoticon
    Oh, dear!! It was just as short. It was just the same as before!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon What size tree will you get? emoticon emoticon emoticon
