My Routine- How I lost 15 lbs so far!

Some of you asked how I lost the 15 lbs or what I am doing.

Here's just a quick look at my weekly routine. It's pretty simple.

I go to the gym about 4 times a week (sometimes 5).
2-3 days I do 1 hour of cardio about 20 min on bike, 30 min elliptical & 10 on treadmil -or whatever I feel like doing-but I always mix it up. It makes the time go by quicker.

Then 2 times a week I go for 2 hours. 1 hour cardio, 1 hour weights which I do lower body one day & upper body another.

I also make sure I am generally moving more. I don't sit as much & I even makw sure I work on the computer standing up! :) Because you know, you get comfortable then its easy to stay a little longer.

As far as eating goes, I'm still fine tuning this, but I try to make sure & eat breakfast (I am a serial bfast skipper) and I usually eat a light frozen meal with 1/2 bag of frozen veggies for lunch & snack. I eat the rest of the veggies for dinner & try to make sure dinner consists of loads of veggies as well. PLUS LOTS OF WATER!

so as you see no real science just lots of veggies & water & lots of working out. I walways said I didn't have the time but less time on comp & support has made it possible to maintain this schedule thus far.

Any ideas, reccomendations & tips would be greatly appreciated! :)

Thank you all for your support! You are the best!

PS I have fam in town so I will continue to be MIA until later this week. We are still doing Itty-Bitty Bookworm Curriculum and I stetched it out for 2 weeks of pumpkin fun since we are so busy & there's loads of kids! (S loves so many kids around!)

How awesome!! Keep it up!! You sound like you really want it and are working hard to get it!!

Susana said...

You sound like you are right on track! Seriously, not trying to sound "sure" of myself, but if you ever have any exercise questions, ask away, I used to train at my gym:-). Wish I could lift weights with you!! If you like cardio, especially the bike, you should check out spinning classes if your gym offers them--awesome workout!!!! You will be amazed!

Adriana said...

Congratulations! Last year I lost 45 lbs. I just gained back 5 lbs and have to get back on the bandwagon.

Sera said...

Ok, first off - awesome job! And can I just say how great I think your approach is? People are asking what you do and want to know what you're doing that's working so well, and I am just loving the fact that what you are doing is eating healthy and working out - that's really the key. It's all about a healthy lifestyle as opposed to some unhealthy diet-of-the-day or whatever. Awesome job, girl!

Christy said...

Good for you! It sounds like you have a plan and you are sticking to it.

Ticia said...

Awesome job on the weight loss! I just couldn't do the machines all the time as a workout, but I guess you're using that time to read your blogs and such stuff, so that would make it better. I like doing the silly dance classes too much to do all those hard machines.
I drink a breakfast shake in the mornings, glass of milk with Carnation Instant breakfast added to it (cue the catchy ad from whenever to be played in your head)

Bobbi said...
