A few questions for you in shape folks....need some weight loss advice
Ok, so many of you know that I hurt my back a couple years ago and had back surgery. Everything seems to be on the up and up now.
I went back to work and stopped drinking sodas and started eating better. At the job I previously had, I was running a machine in a warehouse and figured out that I could run 3 of them in the same amount of time that the lazy people I was working with could run 1 if I busted my ass. I worked 12 hour shifts and pretty much stayed hauling ass the majority of the 12 hours. I lost about 45 pounds in 3 months.
Well, I got a job offer for a way better job, working better hours (NOT nights), and making over twice as much money.
The only downside is, we do a lot of riding around in the work van, and not nearly as much physical activity. When we are out working, we don't have really any options other than fast food. Soooooo, I've put some weight back on.
Here's my questions:
1.) What are some foods I can take with me that don't need to be refrigerated that are healthy ?
2.) If we are near the shop and can sit down at the shop to eat, what are some foods I can eat that can be microwaved/or kept in the refrigerator ?
3.) How long should I wait after I eat before doing cardio ?
4.) Is it better to do cardio in the morning or evening ?
5.) If doing cardio in the morning, should I eat something before and after, or just after ?
I'm sure I'll have more questions, but that's all I can come up with off the top of my head.
Thanks for the help, I need all I can get !
