Back on Track

Before I get into how last night's cardio session made my legs feel like lead, I suppose I should *officially* introduce myself. My name is Karmen, and I'm a twenty something, ok 25 year old nerd =) I created this blog to track my weight loss (25-30lbs.), my interests (beauty, design & crafting), my life with my wonderful husband, Fabian and anything else I deem awesome.

You might even find a couple of pics of our super awesome kitties Izzy and Frankie on here too..we'll see =)

So to my amazement, I've been able to get right back into the swing of things when it comes to working out and eating right. I think for me, having a set schedule really works for my body. When I was on vacation, it was a little more difficult. That, and I hadn't been grocery shopping in a while! So here's what a typical day/week looks like for me in terms of exercise:

45-60 minutes of cardio
I usually break it up into different chunks of time on different new favorite is 20 minutes on the elliptical and 40 minutes on the bike

Since I've gotten back into working out, I mainly did cardio, as that was about all my little attention span could handle. However soon (as in this Saturday) I'll start incorporating strength, scaling back the time I spend doing cardio and using Sunday (and maybe an additional day) for Yoga, the Bar Method, or Pilates

I think thats about it for now, I'll start posting pics very soon =)

Good luck to you. I'm working with exercise dvd's that I got for Christmas and they seem to be keeping my attention for now.
