Fitness Minutes: 2,829

My Goals:
Lose 24 pounds or whatever it takes to get back into a size 6 or 8 (I'm currently a 12). I prefer a muscular, athletic look rather than just being skinny.

My Program:
M - Zumba
T - Rest
W - Zumba
Th - Rest
F - Strength
Sa - Active rest

My old routine was much more strenuous, but I had to tone it back when I broke my finger so I could work around the cast on my arm. Funny thing is, this new schedule is yielding the same or better results with less time spent in the gym.
