So going off my food one...I am also going to start taking advantage of my school gym (apparently it's some state of the art gym because we have so many sports teams)! need some help on where to start....I used to work out religiously pre-marriage....so I know how to do most of the free weight stuff. I can devote 5 days during the week...no weekends (although I could at least walk on the weekends at home with the doggie). There wouldn't be any aerobics classes available during the times I can go...so this would be strictly cardio & weights on my own. I am currently 5'5 147 lbs and a US size 8. Waist size in jeans ranges from 29-30. I have big thighs and big arms. Would like to firm and tone arms, stomach, thighs. Do not want to look like Madonna or Kelly Ripa (man-arms) when I'm done though. Also...losing weight...the actual number on the scale doesn't really matter to me....it's more about being healthy and being toned and tight (and hopefully being able to still fit into the same clothes...not worried about the tops..but worried about the jeans!)! Any advice...what workout schedule would you recommend? What type of workout....should I be doing lots of reps w light weights or....???
