So, let's talk workouts. As I have said before, I'm not a certified professional so anything I suggest is from my own personal experiences. After trying many different diets and workout programs, I finally realized that I had to do what works best for me if I wanted to be healthy and fit for life. One size does not fit all.
If you are just starting a workout plan, I would like to suggest you consult with your doctor first. Get a physical checkup to have a starting point. Everyone is different and are on different levels in their fitness journey. What works for me, may not be what works for you and vice versa. So, please be careful and know your limitations. I know we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us but with everything you do, the law of progression is important. Take your time. This is a lifestyle change not an overnight fix. You cannot fix years of bad habits with one 30-day challenge. The worst thing would be to start a program super charged, injure yourself, then stop because you are discouraged from the injury.
So, after you have consulted with your physician and a nutritionist, you can begin to develop a plan that will work for you for the long haul. Remember, this is a lifestyle change, a marathon, not a sprint!!
I have a couple of suggestions. Not sure if you've heard of them, but when I needed a push to get back in the swing of things, I went to a boot camp. There are a ton of classes to choose from but I really enjoyed 21 Days of Hell ran by Five Star Fitness. It only cost $21 for 21 days. Can't beat that. Now, this is not going to be an easy class, but in my opinion, this is a great way to get started and actually see results. If you decide to give it a try, tell Tiffany and Germaine I sent you. If $21 is not in the budget right now then I suggest I AM BHAM Fitness. This is free, but the stadium is no joke. I may be wrong but I think it is run by the city of Birmingham Parks and Recreation. Check them both out on Facebook.
I'm a member of a local gym and I really enjoy the classes but when I need a kick in the buttocks, I sign up for a boot camp. There are plenty of options to choose from when deciding to start your fitness regime, so choose a program that works for you, just remember slow and steady wins the race. Rome wasn't built in a day or even a 30-day challenge...LOL!!!
