Happy Weigh-in Holidays
Happy Holidays everyone!
I hope everyone who celebrated Christmas (or any other holiday) enjoyed themselves. I did, I went to spend time with my family in Bushwick and it was peaceful. I'm glad I made the decision join them for the holidays. I didn't over indulge so I'm happy for that. I’m just ready to stay on track.
I missed last week’s weigh-in and I’m a day late for this week’s weigh-in so it's only fair I come in and reveal the truth.
You see that right? That is 177lbs! 177lbs! I don’t understand I am really at a loss for words. I truly believe I can make my goal by the end of the month. I’m so proud of myself and I can’t wait until next month to make a new goal to obtain.
I mentioned if the scale continues to go in the right direction I would share my routine and that's what I'm going to do.
So, you guys know that I've been increasing my strength/weight training immensely. When I entered the gym I always did my cardio first and then my strength. However! What I just learned (most of you might know this already) is to do the strength/weight training first and then proceed with cardio. You just burn more calories this way! I wouldn’t have guess that reversing the order of doing workouts would make a difference on how much calories you burn.
I wish I would have remembered to take a picture of the comparison but I didn’t. This is completely observation and this is a proven fact. So, I love seeing the scale move in the right direction.
The only issue I have with this method is my cardio consist of running, so after I complete my three sets of strength/weight training I am so exhausted to run that I only get a 20 or 30 minute run and I hate it. So it looks like I need to find a new cardio workout to do on the days I do my strength/weight training. Maybe I’ll start jumping rope.
Was that new information to some of you? Or did you guys already know and I’m just late to the game?
