I have been going now for about 6 weeks and just celebrated my birthday on the weekend.
My family pitched in for a gym membership for me (as requested) as I have been already going twice a week and it has been a good boost to shifting my first 4 kilos.
At the moment I am doing:
Mon night: Water aerobics (50 mins) pretty intense
Thurs night: swimming laps (usually 20-25/25m pool) - moderate
Ideally, I want to increase my excerise over the next few of months so I can build up to:
Mon night: water aerobics
Tues night: weights & swim
Wed morning: water aerobics
Thurs night: weights & swim or a fitball class (when I can handle land-based activity)
Friday: day off
Sat/ Sun: 1 x long family walk & 1 x pool/gym visit.
This is more than I have ever done in my life and I am wondering if I am being too ambitious...?
I would like some advice as to how to build up and any tips on how to balance cardio/weights.
Also any advice about what and when to eat. I need to be at the pool around 6.30/7 most nights and I am not sure when/what to eat around that time of the day. Dinner before or after?
Thanks in advance
