Not at all. I'd prefer to maintain a completely natural physique. Not to mention the side effects of them. Also you've only been working out for a year, you still have a lot more to gain without steroids.
Cardio, depends on what you want out of it. I tend to go hard, and smash it on certain machines (rowing, cycling), but if i'm on a crosstrainer, or treadmill then i tend to take it easier. I like to set goals for myself, like 1km on a few machines in under a certain amount of time. I always do the amount i tried for and try and get quicker at it. Need to start back up again and do some more cardio. Been slacking for ages so i'm pretty poor right now.
Lost about a stone over the past two months, purely by cutting down on carbs (I have some wholemeal bread now and again as well as brown rice/wholemeal pasta but that's about it), not eating sugary foods and eating fruit when I want a snack. Also been focusing a lot more on cardio recently (usually do about an hour at least 4 times a week) and it's really been working for me. I know it's not as complicated a work-out plan as most of you but I feel pretty good so must be doing something right!
