I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)

Strength training is a great suggestion. I will definitely include that in the August challenge.

Yes...I think we forget how important it is to also strength train! Cardio is great and serves a true purpose but we cannot leave out strength training. We gotta get those muscles working. More muscle boosts our metabolism and helps towards our continuing efforts in losing weight.

I suggest spending 10-20mins doing one of the following option:

2 sets of 8 reps with 5lb dumbbells (beginners) emoticon

3 sets of 8 reps with 5lb dumbbells (intermediate) emoticon emoticon

3 sets of 8 reps with 8lb dumbbells (advanced) emoticon emoticon emoticon

Of course you can adjust all of the numbers above!
