I'm heading out of town today for a weeks vacation at the beach.
Alisa I think your right about doing things alone or with a buddy. If your a goal oriented individual your chances of success going it alone are good. If you need help learning using YouTube, Spark People or Fitness Pal are all good choices to find on-line help.
But if your going to learn weight lifting, PLEASE work with a trainer to develop a routine for your fitness level because injuries can happen so easily with weights or gym equipment.
Kayla you might find tracking your goals at my Fitness Pal helpful. I've been exploring their site and its pretty robust with tracking and reporting. I also signed up at Spark People for their fitness videos and so far they look pretty good too.
Michelle thank you for the warm welcome to the discussion. Your absolutely right! Always remember, no matter how slow you go your lapping everyone on the couch! lol!
Slow and steady always wins when it comes to lifestyle changes.
Got to run for now ladies. I'll be back when I return from vacation. Have a happy successful week!
