I lost weight (before my last baby) by going to the gym and doing some cardio (in my opinion, not enough - about 10-15 minutes) and then strength training (mostly machines).
Now, I am at home (without gym) - I am doing a lot of cardio (at least, a lot more than before) and I'm not seeing results as much. I bought a FitBit - so I not only count steps doing cardio, but also throughout the day. I have been doing pretty well and I find myself more active than before. Iknow not to expect everything quickly but . . .
Dh says at this level of fitness - I should build my endurance and just do cardio. I was thinking that I need to especially focus on cardio - but I should also get at least 2 times a week of strength training (is that enough?). I have Pilates equipment - a Reformer - I don't know if this is enough or if I need to start doing free weights.
I am open to anything - just want to do what is best and I'm a bit uncertain right now.
