Wow, you spend a lot of time training.
I have to start high altitude training soon. Need more Heamoglobin .

And you are right, cardio is the best.

i don't really ENJOY exercise (cardio, weight training, yoga, pilates, dance class, etc), so since it's compulsive for me, i think the four days a week that i do are enough. if i went any more, it would become too much, and i would quit.
i'm pretty into my new routine though, which is two hours at the gym on mon, wed, fri, and sat and includes:
20 min stairmaster (body for life style)
20 min elliptical (about 220 strides per minute)
1 hour circuit training (body for life) with 600 crunches/ab exercises in between
20 min running on treadmill (body for life style)

during christmas vacation, i might go to the gym six days a week, but right now i feel like i always have to do a ton of homework and going to the gym daily would take away from that.

It all depends on your body type and what kind of exercise you're doing. You can do cardio every day, unless you're an ectomorph and you wanna gain more muscle, in that case keep the cardio to a minimum. For heavy weight training (more weight less reps; for bulk) you need to let you're muscles rest between workouts. So three times a day sound pretty good if you're doing a full body workout every single time. Or you can work out every day throughout the week and do a different muscle group each day, then rest on the weekend. If you're toning and sculpting, at least this is how I do it, I do work out every day, doing smaller loads of weight but more reps, this keeps muscles lean.

@ the gym:

20-minute walk to the gym
15 min treadmill
20 min elliptical
10 min bike-thingy (don't know what it's called, it's a bike, but you also move your arms, kinda like the elliptical)
1 hour weights (abs, back, thighs, legs, butt, arms, everything..)
another 30 min elliptical
15 min bike (not a normal stationary bike.. you're sort of laying on the bike or something.. kinda hard to explain..)
20-minute walk from the gym back to my house

@ home:

30 min pilates
Toning exercises (500 sit-ups, 100 leg raises, 150 push-ups, 50 squats)
1 hour dancing around the living room (to Hilary Duff, Britney Spears, Wham!, Michael Jackson, Destiny's Child, ... ) That's such a great & fun work-out. I do it a lot. It looks ridiculous, though..

Geez, I did a lot today.. I actually should've been doing my homework..

Hi all. I desperately want to lose some weight, drop from a size 14 to a 12 maybe. The problem is I cant walk & I'm confined to a wheelchair. I can move everything & stuff! I just cant stand/walk. I would really appreciate it if anyone had any advice on what I can do to lose weight. I go swimming when I can but the problem is I need someone to accompany me to help, which isnt always convenient. I hardly eat much & when I do I'm very health concious, but I just cant seem to lose weight! please help!
