New year...doing it for me !


Recommended Posts

Hi KO,

 

First let me tell you, Welcome on here. Congrats on kickboxing and losing weight already. That's awesome. I love love kickboxing and taught that for years. My favortie class ever.

 

My tips? Get great shoes, that's so number one. If you can't run, don't stress at all, walk, and you will build up as you go. Repeat days if you need to. It sounds like you are fairy active and do you wear a pedometer while you work? I betcha you are taking lots of steps in a day. That's great exercise. Add in some strength training days too. That burns tons of calories and keeps on burning way after too. Drink lots and lots of water. Half your weight in ounces. That's 109 oz for you a day. If you can, that sounds like a lot of potty stops to me. I drink 80 oz a day.

 

Anyways. You are doing great. Proud of you. This is a big step. But you are already working out a lot now. That's awesome.

 

Keep it up and keep us posted. Hugs to you.

Hi KO,

 

Well, you are so welcome. I can't live without a pedometer.

 

Look online for some strength training ideas. Look up muscle building, strength training, etc.. Ohh, there are apps too. ZenLabs has great ones for push-ups, abs, lunges, etc. those are the best. I also have an app called Maxmuscle. There are lots of apps for weight lifting. It walks you through each workout.

 

So, what I like to do is this, one day I do only my upper body, chest, back, biceps, triceps, shoulder. One day I do lower body, legs, abs, calves, etc.., then one day the whole body body shaping. I start out with smaller weights and end with heavy weights. So if you start with a light weight, for the first reps, then by the time you get to the last reps, I am on a real heavy weight. So for 3 sets of reps I do this , first with light weights, I do 15 reps, pick up a heavier weight and do 12 reps, then a heavier with I do 10 reps. There are so many things online that you can print out. If you need some help, let me know and I can look some up for you.

 

Thanks for asking, I love helping. Good luck.

Welcome welcome! Congrats on those 6lbs! Since youve started running, you are a runner! :) My tips like kellyann said is good shoes and to be patient with yourself. a good diet is also important. I dont mean like starving yourself diet I mean just eating healthy and making good choices when it comes to food. Also make sure, this is absolutely important, to set realistic goals for yourself and to REWARD yourself when you reach them. Youre doing a great thing and you should recognize that throughout or this is going to be a very difficult journey.

For strength training I love the nike + training club act they have some great programs that you can do at home, all youd need is space and dumbbells. Zenlabs also has apps for abs butt and legs that I used when I first started and theyre great.

Good luck! Keep us posted on your progress

You may be running favoring one side, that happens. It takes awhile to get the best running form for your body, everyone has a different one. Dont worry just do what feels comfortable and youll straighten yourself out.

Congrats on that first day! Thats a huge step just gotta keep with it! Keep us posted
