Getting back on track

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

The last couple weeks I was too lazy to be vigilant about tracking my nutrition. This week I'm making a point to get back into the habit, because I still am not very good at knowing how many calories a meal has if I don't plan portions in advance.

Positive updates: I am really enjoying my weight training so far. I think in another couple weeks I will make an new appointment with the gym's fitness trainer about adding a few more advanced exercises to my routine. My current one is just a basic circuit of their machines, but I'd like to add some free weights into it. I think that would help make the strength gains more 'balanced' than just narrow focus targeting each muscle group. Still, was starting practically from zero, so I do think it's beneficial for me to start out with something simple. Not to imply that it isn't challenging for my fitness level though. The circuit I do takes about 25-30 minutes, and I definitely can feel some improvements in the muscle tone in my arms already. :D

    Cool! I also took some time off, and now I'm getting back into it too. Yay us! :-) I agree that starting with the machines to build some basic strength is a good idea before moving on to free weights... still be careful, though.... you need to make sure you have good lifting form. Glad you will be seeing a trainer for it! :-)
