Why run, do interval training, burns as many calories and with half the time, hell you can do two if you want.

Because I don't know what interval training is.

You basically do non stop workouts until the time is up, I lost it but one workout was only 10 minutes but was the equivalent of playing a entire hockey game.

back from the gym, oh man I should have eaten again an hour before I left, Fing wrung out like a crack addict after a week long binge.

Sounds tough

It is, and I add capoeira to it.

If you're just looking to lose weight and get fit I'd avoid this kind of thing - it's very likely to result in injury. Once you've got yourself into regular exercise then you can consider tough workouts but for now, important to be patient and regular, more than worrying about how fast you're going, how much weight you're losing etc.

Just try to make sure you make those few minutes every week (initially, extend it as time goes by), don't *overdo it*, get enough sleep, and try to eat reasonably healthy food - I shall not provide a def of what healthy food is 'cos it's easier to say what it ain't - pizza & coke.

Of course if you try to force yourself to never eat another pizza again it's just not gonna work, so same trick as with the exercise, you have a certain amount of leeway built in for cheating in your diet - think of it as rewarding yourself. OK so *if* I do this exercise routine today *then* I can have a treat later. Just be careful not to reward yourself too much Wink

Other thing is, this will take a bit of time to show results, but you'll start to feel better after a few weeks.
- You have better, more regular sleep patterns.
- You feel more alive, literally.
- Eventually fat starts to come off, but don't expect it to happen all at once.
- Weight is a bad thing to measure since muscle actually weighs more than fat, so you may *increase* in weight - if you are overweight though, you will lose some. But the primary thing you look for is how your body *looks* rather than weight. Also you can calculate your BMI as a rough idea of how fit you are - plenty of tools for that on the web.

(((hugs))) Maybe join a gym? I find that to be incredibly helpful and motivating. Diet is the key though to it all. If you work out, but don't change your diet, you won't see your hard work come to fruition...but you already know this, I'm sure. I'm just ...repeating it. Big Grin Angel

Find something you Heart to do, and start out slow. Eventually, it will be something you look forward to. I like Zeke's idea of interval training.
