For the balancing act ...I am trying to balance burning calories to burn the fat and tone up and at the same time not to drain my adrenals. ( because of my adrenal gland fatigue) I am still finding it hard when I do too much and then I feel very tired and depleted. I can do Leslie Sansone's 3 Mile Walk Away the Pounds but I follow the gal that does the modified exercises in the DVD. I am really somewhere halfway between her and what the others are doing. I like being able to go the full duration of the time ( 47 minutes) that the 3 mile does. The 2 mile workout was too short so the modifications I make for the 3 mile works for me. Balance is such a tricky thing sometimes. Finding out what is enough but not too much. Isn't life just like that in so many ways?
