Q&A

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

The past couple of days have been nothing to brag on. Despite the stiffness on Monday I got up and pulled out the Xtreme Fit game and did 1/2 a mile fast walking and then some aerobic exercises.

Tuesday it was a bit harder to do the activities because my toddler kept getting on the game pad doing his thing. But I did challenge myself and jogged for 0.1 mile that may not be much for some of you but for me to jog for more than a minute and see a distance is GREAT! I was out of breath but I JOGGED.

Now I have some questions that I am seeking answers to - is it better to drink cold water or room temp water when trying to boost your metabolism? Do I need to focus on muscle building or aerobics? Let me know so I can line all things up on my journey because I am going to do this I am going to lose weight. I have too much at stake but I don't think i can do it alone and I am not getting any help on the home front as far as support so thanks to all those who have and are encouraging me.

    Hi, First CONGRATZ on the jogging. That is awesome.

    I am not the "voice" of advise by no means. I was told cold water. However if your trying to get in the 8 glasses a day I find room temp easier to drink. LOL when it is cold I get a head freeze.

    I had a trainer come to my house from the hosptial and they had me doing some weights with my exercises. I use soup cans.

    For metabolism remember to eat. Not eatting makes your body store up your calories. I try to eat all my meals the same size and a snack of a fruit or veggie in between.

    YOU can do this. emoticon
