I am 52 yrs old and married 11 yrs (on 3 Jan '15) to my best friend. I also have a 13 yr old daughter. 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, Clean Eating 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"

MY FAVORITE QUOTES/MANTRAS

"When you see the Golden Arches you are probably on your way to the Pearly Gates" William Castelli,M.D.

"The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated." Mahatma Ghandi

YOU are responsible for your results.

I've worked too hard to put THAT in my mouth!

A moment on the lips,forever on the hips!

If you rest,you'll rust!~Denise Austin

A lean,healthy body is 80% clean eating, 10% exercise & 10% genes~ Tosca Reno

Just do it!~ Nike

'Can't" never did anything!

YOU are the powerhouse of your life!--

We do not stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

Pain is just weakness leaving the body.

A friend will come bail you out of jail--a good friend will be there,sitting beside you,saying "We screwed up but we had FUN!!"

As seen in Sandgee62's blog--

" Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body but,rather,to skid in sideways,totally worn out,shouting "...WHAT A RIDE!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's face it, English is a crazy language...
There is no EGG in EGGPLANT, no HAM in HAMBURGER, neither APPLE, nor PINE in PINEAPPLE
ENGLISH MUFFINS were not invented in ENGLAND nor FRENCH FRIES in FRANCE? Sweet-meats are candy, while sweet breads, which aren't sweet, but are meat? QUICKSAND can work slowly, boxing RINGS are SQUARE, and a GUINEA PIG is neither from GUINEA, nor is it a PIG.

And why is it that WRITER'S WRITE but fingers don't FING, GROCERS don't GROCE, and HAMMERS don't HAM?
Doesn�t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend, If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn�t preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

In what other language do people play at a recital. and recite at a play? We ship by truck, but send cargo by ship. WE have noses that run, and feet that smell. We park in a driveway and drive in a parkway. And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, and a wise man and a wise guy are opposite?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up while it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out, and which an alarm goes off by going on. And in closing if Father is POP, how come Mother's not MOP?

Hopefully, this will get you off to a great start for this week!!!

emoticon Michele,
Most of the problems are because of two reasons:
We act without thinking or we keep thinking without acting.

Life is good when we think its good.
Life is bad when we don't think.
