I have been following you since January/February and have found that you give some of the best advice to anyone who wants to lose weight.
I am writing to you though; because I have come across a problem. I have stopped working out (running) since the start of September and have not been motivated to run again since then. I believe this may be because I started running properly (every day for varying times up to 90 mins) during my summer break for 6 weeks, but now that college has started up again I am having trouble getting back into the swing of things... I also stopped seeing results after the first few weeks of running (I had lost 2 stone) probably due to my diet, but I do not handle the shopping/groceries...
I started running a few months before the holiday I had, but the holiday was the time when I could work out the most. I also have a bench and some weights in my back garden that I rarely use because I have just not had the motivation to do so...
Thanks Tony, you have been and still are a huge inspiration to me! I hope you can help me with my problem.
Thanks! It's always nice to hear I've helped inspire someone.
If you can find the motivation I would do high intensity interval training like sprinting for 30-45 seconds and then walking for 60-75 seconds. I would also look up some beginner weight lifting routines online and see if you can do the majority of the exercises with the weight lifting equipment you have. If you find that you are capable of doing these exercises I would definitely start a weight training program because I feel that it is the best way to lose weight, keep it off, and get healthy.
Go back and re-read these past posts here and here.
Feel free to come back every couple of weeks and give us an update. I'd like to hear how you're doing and it may help motivate you to stay on track. Good luck!
