Last year I went to the YMCA everyday for a while. Basically what I did was some ordinary machine workouts, some bike, some running, situps, pushups, and leg weights. I don't know why I ever stopped. I should have kept going.
What about the dieting? Every time I go on a diet I do well with it but I get lazy. I hate doing that.
there's a bunch of different ways to go about dieting. you can count carbs and calories and do that by the book shit, or you can find something that works for you.
i've never been a calorie counter. but when i diet, i do one of two things. if you want an extreme diet that worked wonders for me in the past, limit yourself to 30 fat grams a day. with no more than 10 of them being saturated fat. if you don't want that extreme, you can go up it to like 50, but still wanna keep your saturated low.
or, occasionally i go without meat. just wipe meat completely out of my diet. you can substitute it with stuff. this will 1) help out because chances are whatever you're replacing the meat with is going to be better for you and less fattening and 2) will shrink your appetite after about a week. your meals will be smaller than they are with meat, and your body will adapt. you won't be hungry as much. and even when you decide to go back to meat, you'll be so used to the substitutes you found that you may still eat them also sometimes.
the key is just finding what works for you. and the number one problem with any diet is getting lazy with it. so if you want it, you have to work for it.
