I’ve been training for almost three weeks now! It’s been a long road back though. I definitely feel weaker. I can’t perform as many push-ups or lift as much weight. The levels on my cardio machines are much lower and I feel soreness daily. I’ve been training an average of 4-5 times per week and been watching what I’m eating. I’ve dropped arond 3 pounds, which is slow, but great! I definitely see a huge difference in my abs. That specific area is more loose.
Today I woke up at 4:30am since I went to sleep at an awesome 9:30pm the night before. I have a lot of stuff to do today so it was great to get up and going bright and early in the mornng. I trained my back and performed lat pulldowns, pullovers, deadlifts and more. I even performed 45 minutes on the stairclimber! That was definitely a feat. Right now it’s noon time and I am getting ready to leave to perform more errands and deal what some paperwork in my outside office. If I have time I would love to go back to the gym and take a dance class but we’ll see…
Here are my top 5 ways I have found to be the most effective techniques to help you lose weight:
1. Write down what you eat – EVERYTHING you eat.
2. Stop eating 2-3 hours before bedtime.
3. Drink a protein shake every day.
4. Think FITNESS all day long…whether that’s taking the stairs, wearing trim treads or sucking in your gut while you’re sitting in a chair.
5. Avoid sugar at all costs!
