If you have time to do two 60 minute sessions per day, by all means do so, but most of us don't so doing 40 to 60 mins once/day is more than plenty. Make sure you have good intensity, by this I mean that you are working hard and working up to a good sweat... Are you doing some weight training too? I highly recommend it. Adding muscle will burn more calories at rest and that's a good thing. Weight training also strengthens bones and keeps osteoperosis at bay...

Hope this helps and keep us posted on your progress...

Post Thank You

Thank you Ilene.

I actually do not have the time to work out twice a day but am trying to make it before and after work.! I haven't included weight training I don't even know where to begin? It's been awhile since I worked out and getting back into it is a job in itself.

Yes, getting back into the routine of working out is a lot of work, but well worth it... Check out Krista Smash's site for some good ideas...
