    I'm find I'm getting used to the healthy eating, it's just the exercise that I hate. Ugh, I need to find something I like. I did find my feet and legs didn't hurt this past Coachella just losing the 10%!

    Most people aren't meeting exercise guidelines


    Nanci Hellmich, USA TODAY12:01 p.m. EDT May 2, 2013


    Few people doing enough aerobic activity and strength training.


    Most adults in the USA aren't meeting the federal physical activity recommendations for both aerobic exercise and muscle-strengthening activity, according to government statistics out today.

    About 79% of adults don't meet the physical activity guidelines that advise getting at least 2˝ hours a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity such as brisk walking, or one hour and 15 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, such as jogging. Plus, the guidelines recommend that adults do muscle-strengthening activities, such as push-ups, sit-ups or exercise using resistance bands or weights. These activities should involve all major muscle groups and be done on two or more days a week, the guidelines say.

    Regular physical activity has been shown to lower the risk of early death, help control weight and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression and some types of cancer and a host of other conditions. It lowers the risk of cognitive decline and hip fractures.

    Other research indicates that people are less active than these statistics suggest. Scientists with the National Cancer Institute, using actual motion sensors, found that fewer than 5% of adults in the USA get at least 30 minutes a day of moderate-intensity physical activity in bouts of at least 10 minutes.

    The latest statistics, published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, a journal of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are based on self-reported data from more than 450,000 respondents participating in the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, an annual phone survey of adults, 18 and older.

    Among the findings:

    • 21% of adults say they met both the aerobic and muscle-strengthening guidelines.

    • About 52% say they are meeting the aerobic activity guideline.

    • 29% say they are meeting the muscle-strengthening activity recommendation.

    • The range of people meeting the overall guidelines varied by state. For instance, 27% of those in Colorado met them compared with 13% in Tennessee and West Virginia.

    • Women, Hispanics, older adults and obese adults were all less likely to meet the exercise guidelines.

    "This is a great start, and we can use this information to encourage other adults to increase their aerobic and muscle-strengthening activity," says Carmen Harris, an epidemiologist in CDC's physical activity and health branch. "Improving access to safe and convenient places, such as parks, walking trails and sidewalks, can increase opportunities for physical activity in communities."

    Tim Church, director of preventive medicine research at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, says, "It amazes me that given all the well-known benefits of physical activity that so few Americans choose to be regularly active. The most powerful thing you can do for your health is become active."

    Here are some ways people can meet these exercise recommendations in a week, according to the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans:

    • Take a brisk walk for 30 minutes on five days (moderate intensity); exercise with resistance bands two days (muscle strengthening).

    • Run for 25 minutes three days (vigorous intensity); lift weights on two days.

    • Take a brisk walk for 30 minutes two days (moderate); go dancing for an hour one evening (moderate); mow the law for 30 minutes (moderate); do heavy gardening two days (muscle strengthening).

    • Do 30 minutes of an aerobic dance class (vigorous); do 30 minutes of running one day (vigorous); take a brisk walk for 30 minutes one day (moderate); do calisthenics (sit-ups, push-ups) on three days.

    • Bike to and from work for 30 minutes on three days (moderate); play softball for 60 minutes one day (moderate); use weight machines two days.

    • Play doubles tennis for 45 minutes two days (moderate); lift weights one day; hike vigorously for 30 minutes and go rock climbing one day (muscle strengthening).

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    That's awesome!! Good for you! What is working for you?

    On Monday I started over and so far am doing ok. I have to calorie count because I know that is what works for me. I have a goal to lose 10 lbs at first, and see how that feels, maybe 5 more after that.

    I'm back to tracking with Sparkpeople.com. It's got a water intake tracker, fitness tracker and reports section so you can see your daily calorie differential, weekly or monthly progress, carb/fat/protein breakdowns daily. If you actually do the inputting and take the time it works very well.

    With the pre-sale starting Friday, I have more motivation to drive me to my goals. 33lbs down since Jan. 8th. averaging a stead 1.73lb loss per week. I am half way to my first major goal. I plan on adjusting my goals once I hit the 60lb mark. I really want to be taut for next years coachella. I want to rid of this squish. My plan is to reach my weight loss goals first and then focus on becoming strong and tight. I want to be able to do pull ups by next years coachella! Maybe a 2014 thread to start fresh?

    Yoga once a week is getting this body sexay and also relieving a ton of tension in my lower back, I hear so many cracks after about 30 minutes into the session. My endurance for whacky positions that no one should ever have to stand in for more than 10 seconds is growing.

    So much more my vibe than the gym.

    I am an Endomorph:

    "You're on the heavier side and have always been good at sports that require strength and toughness. You probably don't run a 5k in 17 minutes, but you don't need to. You're by no means fragile, and that makes you a perfect candidate for full contact sports such as hockey, football and boxing, wrestling and weightlifting. Other sports that you may like are soccer, basketball, jogging and swimming."

    Interesting how your body can change. I used to prefer weights over cardio, all day every day. I now prefer cardio over weights. I will have to get in touch with my strong Endomorph side when I start lifting weights and doing some serious toning. First trying to lose the extra fat. I do not think I am going to play contact sports any time soon..

    I'm loving yoga too. I can stay consistent with it because I enjoy it so much more than lifting weights.


    I'm feeling bummed though. I had lost weight before Coachella but I've been eating terribly for the past month. I put some of that weight back on. So discouraging! so far this week I've been back to eating healthy and I started running again.
    Oh look it stopped snowing...

    Yeah.


    Ectomorph You're lean and mean. You probably have no problem playing any sport. You might have a difficult time getting buff, but that's not really what you're into anyway. Your idea of a good workout is putting on the head phones and going for a nice long jog. Some sports you might consider would be distance jogging, swimming, basketball, soccer, or boxing. Some other challenging sports that you may want to try are football, baseball, weightlifting, wrestling and hockey.

    -- I guess I should just start jogging.

    This is exactly what I did! Met my initial 25lb goal, then upped it to 30lbs. With one more pound to go, I started barbell training. I'm about six weeks in to Starting Strength and am loving the changes! Not much squish left on me, other than boobs

    I haven't tried pull-ups, yet. But I'm thinking I'll work on that when I'm finished with this 12wk beginner's program. Also need to work on pushups. I hate not being able to do either one of those

    According to the quiz, I'm an Ectomorph. I'm not sure how accurate that is, as I absolutely hate running (same with biking, aerobics, etc.). Not really a team sports player, either. I think all of that's more of a self-esteem issue, tho, as I don't like being looked at.

    According to the quiz I'm an endomorph but I'm also a wimp. My sports of choice are dancing and hiking/walking. Team and contact sports hold very little appeal.
