Thanks everyone for the encouragement...it makes me feel so much better!!
As for my workout..I do strength training/weights on M,W,F and that takes me about 40 minutes and then I do 30 minutes of cardio after that...and on T,Th,and Sat...I only do Cardio for 45- 60 min...I alternate between the bike,elliptical,treadmill,and stair stepper... I'm hoping to begin adding a class in somewhere in the next month.
I worked with a trainer for the first 5 weeks to get a routine going and I'm hoping to pick that back up too after I save a bit more money
The main thing that I really enjoy is that everyone at my gym is sooooo nice and friendly so it makes it a bit easier to keep coming...I just have to learn to be satisfied with mini goals...
One of my friends told me that if losing 40 pounds was my goal...I'm 1/4th of the way there...and that just sounds a lot better!
