Zero to Fitness

It has been a long few weeks on Weight Watchers and I have had great success. I can’t complain about that at all. Now I am ready to really jump into exercise but I’m not really sure where to start. This is where I would love feedback from all of you!

I have a Fitbit Flex and I have had a great deal of success with this so far. I move much more every day just to meet my step goal. What I am looking to do now is to strengthen my entire body and not just focus on walking.

My biggest fear, which I think many of you can relate to, is that I will lose a lot of weight and have sagging skin. I am working on drinking a great deal of water each day and my weight loss is at a healthy rate of less than 2 pounds a week so I am hoping that this will help with the sagging problem. It is time to incorporate more than just eating healthy into my lifestyle change.

So, tell me what are your favorite workouts? I am looking for free workouts that require little equipment. I have free weights around the house and resistance bands available for workouts. How do you keep track of your measurements and workouts? How do you chart progress with fitness?

    great job honey xx go on Youtube and look up “fitness blender”. They have a lot of exercises that require little to no equipment and for all ranges. You have the freedom to pause to rest whenever you want and go at your own pace since it’s at-home. This is a great way to start working out. Also try “Blogilates” on Youtube; it’s super popular. Once you start getting comfy with those, I suggest circuit workouts at home to tone up and build muscle. There are plenty online if you just google it and you already have free weights/resistance bands so that’ll help! good luck my love and keep us updated! sorry for the long post.. lol ❀

    I have been doing 21 Day Fix and the program is absolutely fantastic! If you’re interested in more info I am running a challenge group right now – it actually starts officially tomorrow. I’ve had awesome results after just 2 rounds. I lost 15 lbs and over 16 inches. I’ve done weight watchers as well and had some good results with it – but I found I needed this extra motivation and a workout plan to follow πŸ™‚ http://www.beachbodycoach.com/teamsusieq

    Also, in terms of tracking your measurements, don’t rely solely on the scale. Once you get into working out and using weights on a regular basis, you may very well lose lots of inches and remain the same weight for a bit. Measure your chest (pick either above or below your bust but be consistent each time you measure), the narrowest part of your waist, the widest part of your hips, each thigh near the top, and mid way on each bicep. Those are the measurements I would recommend you have as a minimum. If you want to take more, go ahead – any changes will be a motivation to continue πŸ™‚ just make sure you’re taking them in the same places each time. You’re off to a wonderful start πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to following your journey!

        No problem – sometimes we get so caught up with the scale – that we forget how we feel, how our clothes fit and how strong we have gotten actually is more important. My last round of the program I’m doing I actually only lost 1 lb – but I lost about 7 inches. And my first round I lost 7 lb and 6 inches. Lost a few lb and a couple inches in my off weeks as well, but my second round was clearly a lose fat, gain muscle round. Until I took my measurements I was beating myself up because the scale hadn’t moved.
