      it's a seasoning. mike loves it.

      intervals are a great way to train. you can acutally burn more calories with intervals than just constantly running.

You know, I bet once I get a routine going, I could run for like 30 mins (maybe 20 to start) right when I get off work...because working out for me makes me sleepy...I can't do it before I go to work or I am exhausted and wanting to sit down and relax...
        From what I've read lately a lot of trainers are leaning toward interval training instead of maintaining one steady pace the whole time. So, you can always build up to running for a longer period of time, like start one minute jog/ 2 minutes walk then go to 2 min jog/ 2 min walk then 3 min jog/ 1 min walk etc... also that is a good way for you to vary your workout and gives you some built in goals to reach.

          I use it like Tobasco sauce - on almost everything I cook- I'm a cajun girl who likes spicy food. Tony's isn't too spicy, though, depending on how much you use. If you only use a little it gives your food a little zing. It makes bland food awesome.

            The Tony's and the intervals sounds good... I am going to start there... You know what will help, if you guys have time...will you hold me accountable. I am sure the first few days you ask me..."Alex, have you worked out?" and I may say No, will get tiring to me because I will feel like I am letting you all down, then I will really get it together...or maybe we can be accountability partners and keep track of each other's progress I don't have anyone here I want to work out with so that will be close enough. What do you say?

                Ok, let's hold each other accountable... So I will be 100% honest, I won't be working out until Monday...I will try and go when I get off, depending on how I feel at 7 am... What about you?

                alex, why dont you join biggest loser 3 - that group is designed specifically for the kind of support you are looking for and you even can get a buddy who keeps you accountable with emails/text messages/phone calls, whatever you prefer.

                  I despise running, but have been pushing myself to run intervals 3-4 times a week along with mixing in some eliptical & stationary bike. As much as I hate it, it seems that running is the only think that moves the scale for me. I'm on board to be a motivation buddy if you need one! My FI leaves for work at 6am, so it forces me to get out of bed & hit the gym early!

                    [QUOTE= I played college basketball and was very disciplined

                    What about finding a basketball team/class to join? maybe once a week to start? I played soccer through college and haven't played in years and recently found a soccer class to get me back in shape so that I can join a team...it was really hard to get motivated at first, but once I go out there, the love of the game came back tenfold and made it easier for me to continue.
