Body Pump Class Above
So, today I want to write about excercise and continue on yesterdays New Year, New You. IF you want to lose weight you have to work out... a lot. Anna (aka god) told me to get 4-5 days cardio/week (30-45min sessions) and 2-3 days strength training (ie weights, like my new fav BodyPump class). But lets be realistic here... by the time you are done with work/school/whatever you are tired! But the more you start working out, the easier it gets, I PROMISE!
So start slow, maybe 2 days a week and 1 day of weight lifting. If you can afford a gym membership, get one. But find a gym that is 1) close to your home and 2) a fit for YOU. For me, Gold's Gym is perfect. They have a cardio movie theater, tvs on ALL the machines. And they yell at you in classes, which i respond to. If you can't afford a gym, research online to find running trails and parks in your area! Grab an ipod and some tennis shoes and hit the pavement! If you need tips on how to do strength training at home without buying weights, leave a comment and I will help you!
One piece of advice- if you decide to do morning weight lifting (like before work) and you like to have a big breakfast, eat it at least one hour before working out, if you don't I swear you may vomit. If you don't like a big breakfat, grab an energy bar... but you MUST eat something or you will fade... fast.
So, for this weekend your new goal is to find a gym, find a workout program, and commit to it!
