Effective work out?

Monday, April 15, 2013

Well, my eating's been pretty healthy. I may have had too much pasta today but I had a great breakfast and some fruit and a light lunch. And treated myself to a low cal hot chocolate.

I did end up eating a chinese takeaway on saturday, it was soooo delicious... But maybe next weekend I can cut down some more on my fast food intake. It's so difficult when your boyfriend is sitting beside you munching away on the tastiest looking pizza slice ever!

But I should be proud, I've been doing great on the food front. As for the exercise, I went to the gym today but only stayed on the treadmill for ten minutes, my chest was going to explode. I then sat at the cross trainer for five minutes but please will someone tell me the point of those? I just feel like I'm going to smack myself off the arms as they turn around! Terrifying.

I'd like to get a better fitness routine going. Tomorrow is my strength day but I'm not quite sure what to do.. I don't have any equipment so I was thinking reps of sit ups, push ups, lunges.. does that seem like an ok idea? I'd also like to get a bit more structure into my cardio work outs, I'm kind of just doing whatever. I alternate between treadmill, step machine and whats that one you run on but -elliptical, that's the one. So I do twenty minutes of one of those three times a week.

When I say I do, I mean I intend to haha. I've only gotten back into exercising in the past two weeks after a few months' hiatus.

So yeah, that's me for today, it's been a good day and I'm feeling positive. I'm even looking forward to strength tomorrow.

PS Weigh in today 137.6 pounds. Higher than I expected, but probably the best I could have hoped for given my months of no exercising and eating takeaways.

    emoticon EVERY Workout is an "Effective One" in My Opinion. Keep experimenting and trying new New Things until you find a Routine that You Enjoy. Maybe paying for 1 or 2 sessions with a Trainer at the Gym would be a Good Investment if you want Help with any machines or if you have doubts about your Form.
    emoticon Good Luck!!
