Clearing the dust..

Came back from the office yesterday with a strong will to start again..dusting the long forgotten exercise bicycle and rode for almost one hour while watching tv..hehe






Burned only about 300 calories..mmm..I read that in order to lose 1lbs I need to burn 3500 cals!..oohhh..another 3200 cals to go..

hehehe..



I have to start somewhere, right?

(but my knees hurt at the moment)

***************


5 tips for exercises - both aerobic and strength training.



Tip #1: Squats:

Every day in front of the mirror, put your feet at shoulder width while facing forward and squat down-and-up 10-20 times for 2 or 3 sets.


(Image : google)


Tip #2: Push-ups:

Do 2 or 3 sets of 20 push-ups to build arm strength and increase your RMR.


Tip #3: Jumping jacks:

Do 4 or 5 sets of 20 jumping jacks, or as needed.

Tip #4: Fast walking:

Fast walking is even better for burning fat. Once you start your faster walking pace, try to maintain as much speed as possible for as long as you can.

Tip #5: Stepping:

Stepping is a great way to get your heart beating and to burn calories. Do 2 to 3 sets of 20 steps each to begin.


(Dusting this one as well..hehe)



Most importantly, I need to "Motivate Myself" ~ will try to find an incentive for getting in shape and burning fat.

Good Luck to me!

absolutely emy said...

tengah turunkan berat lemak pada badan juga. sungguh susah. tiada kelengkapan macam cheqna. tapi skrang ni tengah pura-pura rajin sapu dan mop lantai rumah. dalam jangkamasa 2 jam satu sessi.. memang kurus sedikit lengan ini.. hahaha..

apa-apa pun.. best of luck cheqna!

Ada orang bagi tau.. kalu mop lantai, cuci keter, or jog or excersiz lebih dari sejam baru la lemak2 akan terbakar.. huhuhuhu..

TK said...

Wah dah keluar dah semua alat2 dia..I dari dulu kalau diet with exercise memang fail sebab tak sabar. Bila nampak tak turun I stopped exercising. Jangan lupa take less calories so there is less to burn. Whatever it is, mesti consistent and don gif up. Good luck to you dear.You can do it babe!
