My name is Sarah, I'm 24 years old and I am wanting to lose 30 pounds. In my profile pic, the me on the left is from 2 years ago and the picture on the right is a pic of me from June. This is the heaviest I've ever been and I'm struggling with a lot of insecurity over it.
But I'm done feeling sorry for myself, I want to actually CHANGE my situation. Apart from wanting more energy and to be in better health, I also want to lose the weight because I'm getting married in November!
And I wasn't too happy with how I looked in my engagement photos. I'm not sure I can lose 30 pounds by November but I know I can at least lose 20 which no matter what will be a huge accomplishment :-)
So I know that weight training is one of the best ways to tone and lose weight. I know I need to work on different areas different days like chest, back, abs, arms, legs. But my question is.. everyday should I be also doing cardio and for how long?
I should also mention I have a healing sprained ankle that I still can't walk on for long so I can't run or walk as a cardio.. does anyone else know of any good alternatives while healing from an injury?
Alright well I'll be starting my first work out today and any and all help will be greatly appreciated!! :-)
You could do many cardio workouts by lying down(elbow plank is a great example). You'll have to figure out which exercise doesn't puts pressure on your ankle. Avail as much time as you can throughout the day(start gradually though). Limit your resting day to just one. Eat healthy!
