    I am posting my picture in here for motivation to stop eating so much.

    It's been such a bad past couple of years with my aunt dying and my dog dying and I've just used food and liquor as a crutch.

    Sounds like you just want to tone up. That will add muscle and weight. Maybe just some low weight high rep type training...5-10 exercises 3x a week should do the trick. An exercise or two for each major part of the body should do it. Using light weight and 12-15 reps is a pretty easy workout-you aren't training to muscle failure, just to tone. 30 minutes should do the trick, with maybe 10 minutes of warmup on a threadmill and a 5 minute cool down on the treadmill.

    Let me impart some advice: use your eating habits to control fat loss and heavy weight training to put on muscle.

    stop thinking in terms of "cardio" or any exercise for fat loss.

    There is no "toning" in weight training. You either have muscle or you have a lot of fat covering it. The amount of muscle will relate to the amount of heavy weight you can lift. Occasionally it's ok to do high reps.

    Low intensity, long duration cardio is boring and a waste of time and will burn more muscle than fat.

    good luck

    I agree with this...diet trumps exercise. Toning can be achieved once you're close to meeting your weight goal. To get into a diet and exercise routine at the same time increases the failure rate I think.

    Hey hun. :hug:

    She wants to gain weight, not lose it. It implies that she does not have a lot of fat now. Weight training will tone her up. I don't think I was so far off. Muscle also weighs more than fat,small increases in muscle will give her a little more weight. I didn't say anything about her diet because I don't know why she has kidney issues.

    It sounds like she is more at the tuning stage than needing a major overhaul.

    I'm not trying to sound defensive and I can always learn more, but I've been training a long time-I'm not clueless.

    I will join this thread next week. Winter camping on the agenda this weekend and there will be zero weight loss or healthy activities happening. Unless shivering counts of course.

    The holidays killed me, put on 15 lbs, started smoking again, drank like a fish. I need to lose the weight and get back to working out again, I used to ride 20-30 miles a week on my mountain bike but haven't touched it in weeks.

    The good news, no cigs for three days...just had a glass of wine with dinner last night, started light work outs again.

    Anyone do "Cross Fit"? I 've heard good things, but I've also heard of a lot of injuries from it.

    I'm only busting your balls.

    Being tone is having low body fat in relation to muscle mass. You accomplish this through proper eating habits and weight training, dependent on your goals, medical history, lifestyle, etc.

    There is no one size fits all program. I'd advise anyone to not be dogmatic. Try something new and test it yourself. That's what I have done over the last 30 or so years.
