I’m in full swing for my body-reshaping! I am not calling it diet because that’s a negative term! As a marketer, you learn to take these negative terms out of your vocabulary. I am not on a diet, I am not trying to slim up. I am BODY-RE-SHAPING!
Work out’s been going quite good so far. We went to a fitness assessment on Tuesday. All I can say is, I need a lot of work. I want to get fit, but not enough to pay 69.99 every week, but I do want it. I’ve been going to the gym pretty consistently. I start with a 20 minute cardio work out on the eliptical: 5 min warm up, 3 minutes of fast, 2 minutes of slow etc. etc. and followed by a 5 minute cool down. Just so my heart doesn’t explode, I then do my weight/resistance/muscle training. Whatever you call it. I work with moderate weights (30-70 lbs depending on the muscle) about 3 reps of 5. Probably not enough. I also do some situps, some body bend down thingy during this time too. I follow it with another 20 minute on the treadmill, 5 min warm up, 3 minute fast, 2 minutes slow etc etc. and a cool down.
Yesterday I was motivated and even swam 5 laps in the pool too. Today, I woke up feeling a tad like something shot everyone of my muscles but I’m still full of energy. Good thing ♥ ♥ I wanted to go back today, but Marc advised me to take it easy and do pilates and a walk instead. Deal.
I found this website that is basically a free trainer. Hence the name stupid. It can get you a personalized fitness plan complete with what machines you should do on what days as well as nutrition plan. Check it out 🙂
Any fitness people around? Am i doing anything wrong? What should I modify? Keep in mind, I am trying to lose weight and tone my body.
Thanks and Much ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
