There is no doubt that this takes real commitment. I sought out lower calorie items to help me eat healthy. Walden Farms makes a great assortment of items that are ZERO calories, and they taste great. Like you, at first I hated the exercising, but after about a month, I don't miss a day, because I love the way I feel afterward. I usually do one or two Daily Burn sessions, almost always a yoga session, and then I hit the treadmill. I'm 61, and my goal is to lose 100lbs. You have to be willing to make a life change for this to work, but in the long run, it's worth it. Do what I did--make a 6-week commitment and agree with yourself that you will see how you feel after six weeks--my guess is that if you stick with it, like me, you'll feel so good, you'll want to stick with it.
I tried protein shakes, but they didn't do it for me. So I bought a Vita-Mix and started making my own juice with protein powder. Because of this approach, I've moved from a junk-food based diet to a whole live food diet of which, every morning, I have yogurt, protein powder, broccoli, spinach, berries, and other fruit smoothie. I've lost nearly 35 lbs. in three months, and feel like a million bucks. I'm 61 so I've had plenty of time to develop bad habits, but the new habits make me feel so much better. Fast food is now just a distant memory!
I had the same problem but found the yoga helped tremendously!
During the 50 minute mobility yoga, Cody mentions that a regular yoga class is about 1 1/2 hours long and has a different "flow." I'd love to see that type of session offered (just as the 9 minute kettle bell session is offered) for a "real" yoga workout. Thanks
I've done more than one core workout per day and I'm 61--that means I'm either fit, or crazy--actually I'm neither. But I have found that I can do 2-4 workouts per day, burn more calories, but I don't do two workouts that target the same area. I do the mobility yoga 3 times a week, and the 18 minute restorative yoga every evening.
A great way to track calories burned and ingested is using MyFitnessPal.com--the app is on my computer, phone, and iPad so it's easy to keep track of what I eat, can eat, and the calories I burn. Unfortunately, the "Daily Burn" nutrition site does not hook into the workouts for calorie count, and frankly, is a bit cumbersome, so MyFitnessPal works for me and it might help you.
I'm 61 and was having some hip pain. My doctor said either lose about 100 lbs or plan on hip surgery. I'm a pastor in a local church and several of my seniors have had hip surgery. Knowing what is involved in the recovery process, it was a no-brainer decision. Daily Burn is the easier and less intensive route!
