Hi and to the team. SP recommends cardio at least 3 days a week and Strength at least 2. They also recommend alternating cardio and strength so that your body has recovery time after your strength training to help prevent injuries. As the weight drops and your strength and endurance increase with the exercising you will continue to have more energy and feel better and better. You are on the right track but be sure to increase your activity little by little so as to not burn yourself out.

Continue to track your food and weigh yourself every morning before you eat. If you slip one day get back on track the next day. Don't beat yourself up. Try to do cardio at least four days a week. Just say that you are going to do 20 minutes to get yourself there but you will do more once you are there.
