Don't move up if you don't feel you are ready. They really can be challenging but are not boring at all. I am glad I could help.
Do you log your activity on FitDay? If so how do you log Cardio Max and Power Sculpt?

I do log them. I had to research online and find the closest category. I do the Cardio Max under calisthenics and the Power Scupt under weight lifting vigorous effort.

I am doing a Low Carb but keeping my calories at about 1400 and carbs near to 20-30 grams. (my sugar runs high and am pre-diabetic). I do exercise. I am using the Body For Life program. So Mondays Upper Body Work Out Tuesdays: Cardio Wednesday: Lower Body Work Out Thursday: Cardio etc. Some days I have great energy and some days I am draggin.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
The only advice I can give is to keep working at it. It took me six weeks to start losing weight. I look at my weight loss as a work in progress and a life style change. You will eventually find something that you can do the rest of your life. One thing that was different was that I did more cardio in the beginning to get my metabolism moving so you may want to do more cardio then work in the toning after a few weeks. I started out walking, it is an easy exercise and most people can do it. I walked twice a day started with a half mile, to a mile and I worked up to two miles twice a day. Good luck and you can do anything you set your mind to do!

I'm proud of u. I am 5'3 & 180 lbs. I'm sick & tired of being sick & tired. I want to be healthy & get my energy back. Yes I would like to look better too. I am having a hard time getting motivated. I used to be a gym person until I was having serious joint issues they couldn't figure out so I left the gym. I don't lose weight mainly from working out but from eating property & exercise. I have equippment at home, but I'm not good at home. I can't afford the gym anymore so I'll have to make it work. I did my goal weight and it says that I must eat 1,738 cal max. to lose 1.35 lbs/wk to get to my goal weight loss of 50 lbs by Sept. That's 5 lbs a month which should be attainable. Can you give me any meal ideas that worked for you. I don't eat pork FYI. Thanks and keep up the great work!
