    Totally demolished my workout class today.. But I am sad to report I'm not much faster on my official run times. 10 minutes for a mile. All the running I've been doing and I'm at the same speed.

    Here are a couple of terms: Max heart rate, and Target Heart rate.

    Max Heart rate = 220 - (Your age). So for someone your age, 200 is essentially your max heart rate.

    Target Heart Rate is what you want to strive for in training. It's Max Heart Rate * % intensity. So if you were 20, it would be (220 - 20) * .5 = 100.

    Generally, the higher the intensity the better the cardio workout, but the less fat you burn. A lower intensity will burn a higher percentage of fat, but not be as good a cardio exercise. Since I don't feel like checking my books, I'll just go with wikipedia and say that .5 - .85 is the desired intensity range.
    Actually I've got to speed up because the max time I was supposed to get was 15 minutes. Apparently, if I'm not under 15 minutes/mile, I'm not getting a cardio workout.

    I could really care less about burning fat compared to cardio. All I want is that when I move into college next year I can do my own heavy lifting.

    My guess is that you need to push yourself harder with that specific activity, as your body has likely adjusted to a pace. You'll be surprised how challenging it will be when you decide to run a bit faster, because the quickened pace will call into action muscles that get to take it easy right now.

    I thought we largely agreed on the fact that your gym teacher is sort of an idiot.

    She's in denial that fat people exist.

    Okay, here it is:

    Goal: Become strong, self-reliant woman

    Step #1: Be able to do the heavy lifting. No really.

    While my brother was away at school, that left me, my mother, and my (severely overweight) father. None of us could lift heavy things. That's a horrible and scary predicament to be in. The only way to guarantee that it will never happen again is by making it so that I am the one who can do it.

    Also, a lot of the colleges I am applying to have huge, hilly campuses so this cardio is not going to waste, either.

    Ate pretty well today. Veggies at every meal, 2 egg breakfast (yeah, no separating out the yolks, but since I don't eat a ton of meat and that's the main thing I have for breakfast, I think it'll be alright). Caved and had a Coke today, so that's my Coke for this week. Need to bring a snack to school tomorrow so I don't do that after school. Did Jillian and sweated. Lots of walking around school. Had more water, but still didn't quite hit 2L yet. (Although, it's only 10!)

    My workplace is trying to get me fat.

    Today was snack day.
    Tomorrow is pizza day.

    I'm going to have to start skipping these if I'm to have a prayer.

    Got back from gym, one hour of medium level weight lifting, though always done to failure - then stretching. Came home, opened large container of whey protein to get hit in the face with the scent of... vanilla. Strong, strong vanilla. I accidentally bought the wrong kind. I think it lodged in my nostrils permanently. There is nothing wrong with vanilla, but it does not go well with certain things, including but not limited to my stomach.

    So yes, workout definitely done for today, and time to go cook a nice cut of pork chop.

    A good quote I stumbled upon today. I would do well to remember it.

    "When it comes to eating right and exercising, there is no 'I'll start tomorrow.' Tomorrow is disease." ó V.L. Allineare

    You are doing good, Hap. At this rate you'll be ready to hit some serious lifting exercises by the end of this all.

    When you are ready to start lifting, I suggest visiting http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...ng-thread.html. There are some very knowledgeable people here, and I bet they'll be happy to help you get started. It's not as intimidating as it initially looks! The basics aren't that complicated, and in fact I think alot of people do harm by making it more complicated than they should.

    You know, everyone is different. If you aren't feeling thirsty or hungry (thirst can sometimes be confused for hunger), then perhaps you don't need to hit 2L. Just be sure to drink plenty of fluids during your exercise periods.

    Your workplace rocks! Yeah, it's a little bit evil as well.

    Oh, I love vanilla whey. Of course, what brand you get is very, very important. Some of them are pretty good, and some of them will destroy your will to live.

    You're right Udog.. I just thought I WAS pushing myself lately! I thought for sure I was gaining speed and momentum, it really felt like I was doing this faster and faster and really I've been going the same speed the whole time I've never been a fantastic runner, but I DID get first place of all the women and 4th place overall in the 1 mile run in Weight Training class.. so that's a slight boost of confidence.
