How hard is it to stay on track? I just can't seem to keep my motivation. I recently moved into a dorm and i notice I'm gaining a little weight. I want to be toned and skinny...any suggestions or hints? Thanks all!!
Welcome to Skimble!
First off....starting towards a healthy lifestyle can be tough at first. But trust me once you see results you will become addicted. The key is to make a Lifestyle Change rather than just "start exercising." It's all about developing your routines until workouts become a "habit"
A good start for anyone could be a bit of Cardio work. That could be a light jog a few times per week or a ride perhaps. Anything that raises your heart rate is worthwhile. If time is an issue you could work with Tabata or HIIT workouts. These provide a substantial Cardiovascular improvement in a short space of time (for example exercises Tabata style can take as little as 4 mins per workout)
Other than this you could start with the Beginner workouts on Skimble and progress as your fitness improves to the tougher routines. I have been at this a year and I still look at some workouts and think "WTF?? I will Never do that!"
The key things to remember are as follows:
I will leave it there for now. Add me as a friend and feel free to ask about anything you are unsure about.
