The No Nos in Weight Loss

Today's post is about the mistakes we all make when trying to get into shape. I retrieved these 5 weight loss mistakes from 

1. Not lifting weights. Using weights is the number one mode of exercise to burn body fat!

2. Walking. It's a good start but it just isn't enough, 

3. Not committing your self enough or going hard enough at the gym. Stay committed. Push yourself. 

4. Doing boring cardio. Now don't get me wrong, I love just listening to my Lady Gaga or watching the Cash Cab while doing the elliptical machine but if you want to burn fat you need to add some high intensity interval training. Plus, varying your workout routine keeps it interesting, 

5. Not looking for someone to help you. Consult a personal trainer or fitness expert if you have any questions. Try attending the Wellness2Go fitness classes at Lexington Crossing on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5 p.m. Ed Buckley leads the classes and is an expert on fitness. He would be happy to answer any of your questions!!!

Happy workouts!
