You mentioned treadmill in one of your posts. I would like to ask if it is effective in keeping weight steady, or maybe it serve other purposes. Also is it better to train in the morning or evening?

It depends on your goal. Generally, whenever you can do it is the best time for health and maintenance, but I usually choose fasted low intensity steady state cardio in the morning if fat loss is my primary goal, and I like the treadmill because it's easy to track workouts and deliberately increase speed or incline over time.

A treadmill isn't necessary though. You can accomplish a lot of the same things by walking our your front door, and I'd probably choose that more often myself if I lived in a place with better weather.

You've got to watch your diet too though. "You can't outrun a bad diet." But as long as your diet is reasonably healthy, daily walking should be enough to maintain weight and health.

I think that my mostly (60 to 70%) vegetarian diet is quite healthy but is only opinion of layman.

I don't have real problem with keeping the weight steady, but what's true now won't be necesarilly true forever and this is my reason for asking. I already use mechanical stepper but I don't see increase in general fitness which is my other goal and I wonder if treadmill wouldn't be more effective in this.

As for outdoors - don't like training in that way.

RE: Atheists who work out
We're going to Harry Potter World the last half of this week, so I made a point to go to the gym twice in the first half of the week. I'm going to count the swimming and walking I'm going to do in the next four days as workouts. Now, I need to keep up this momentum up into and through the holidays.

Thank you Smile

They were trying to push this neon yellow pair, but couldn't convince me that glow in the dark shoes would help me go faster. Laugh out load

Good point. Consider But when I go to the gym I want people to say "Here comes CoB" not "Here comes CoB's shoes." TongueWink

Well, I certainly did get steps in. As far as when I carry my phone, I tend to only get 3,000 - 4,000 steps in on a week day. Note, I don't have my phone at the gym or if I go running. On the two days we were in the park, I got between 17,000 and 18,000 steps each day.

RE: Atheists who work out
So I got absolutely bored with my 30-minute walk per night that I'd been doing for forever. And honestly it hadn't been getting my heart rate up for quite a while so what was the point.

Went and picked up a pair of dumbbells yesterday and followed along to a strength-training video on YouTube. I knew my legs would be sore 'cause we did squats, but although she said we were working our core, I didn't quite believe her ('cause I didn't feel very much of a burn as I was working out) but my tummy is a bit sore today. Tongue

At least it did get my heart rate up and it was much more interesting than just walking back and forth in the apartment.

Tonight - cardio!

RE: Atheists who work out
Long running weekend. Ran for 4 1/2 hours total between Saturday and Sunday covering 29 miles. This was the longest workout weekend on the training plan. In the past, I have tended to run this too fast and then had trouble recovering for the actual marathon so I made myself hold back on the pace somewhat. To my surprise, even after the 18 mile run yesterday, I wasn't totally wiped out for the rest of the day. I'm hoping this is a good sign for how the race will go. I'll find out on January 7th. Smile

Things I don't miss: Wasting an hour in church every Sunday and holy day, boring sermons, wasting time praying frequently, wasting money on church donations, fearing hell, sanctioned bigotry. Now if we could only get religious meddling with politics and laws on that list. Dodgy
