I started out in October with a goal to lose 10 pounds. I have since surpassed that goal and hit 17 pounds!
But I’m not done yet.
My goal is to drop another five to seven pounds. If I could lose another 10, I’d be ecstatic.
I’ve been making the most of my cardio workouts three times a week by paying attention to my heart rate.
My trainer said my heart rate should never exceed the following:
220 – my age = maximum heart rate
Since I am 30, my max heart rate shouldn’t go over 190 when I am working out.
There are tons of heart rate calculators out there that tell you where your heart rate should be to burn fat during your workouts.
Another tip to stimulate weight loss is changing your diet. Just a few tweaks can jump start your metabolism. I have a friend who dropped about 10 pounds quickly by eating yogurt instead of ice cream, having fruit instead of cookies and enjoying wheat bread instead of white.
Do you have any tips to help stimulate weight loss? Any good low calorie recipes? I am getting a little sick of frozen diet meals.
