Hello all. I have decided to make some life changes after years of extremely unhealthy living. My primary goal is to lose 200 lbs. I am severely obese and haven't the first clue about the best ways to start exercising. I am currently following the Atkins diet faithfully (day 6) and have discovered a hatred for big food companies and processed food in general (watch "Hungry For Change" on netflix). I found a couple basic routines to start with Wicked Warm Up Stretching and Beginner Blast Off. After completing those two workouts consecutively I immediately became nauseous and light headed. It was an unfamiliar feeling that I didn't enjoy much. I drank some water and had lunch, recovering fully about 1.5 hours later. Is this normal? I haven't exerted myself to that level of physical activity in a very long time. Any help or encouragement is appreciated.
Yeah I kinda figured that was the case. When you say breaks, do you mean I should pause the workout for a couple minutes or are you referring to the 10 second "breaks" incorporated into the workout?
Thanks y'all Sound advice.
Yeah that's normal, especially if your overweight.
OK good I feel better now.
Good for you... first dont let your self get fouled by documentaries... everything is good or bad depending on how you consume it and point of view amd trust me i know the food industry... for the rest eat what ever you want and just by your bmi... get a food and calorie app so you know how much you put in your body is better to lose half pound or one pound a week and feel good than go nuts... dont over do the excercise and yes pause catch a breath and go again a little a day is better than nothing you will see improvement and will be motivated... keep posting man.
Thanks Jeanette I'll check it out.
