A New Me For Christmas:Week Three

  
Woohoo another 2lb down from last week.  Not really moving as fast as I would like but I know it is better to loss slowly as the weight is then more likely to stay off that way.

I have managed to stick to the healthy eating apart from a couple of little slip ups and have trained four times.

My biggest love is weight training which is a fantastic aid to weight loss.  Many women fear that using weights will leave then big and bulky.  This is not the case, in fact they a great addition to your weight loss program.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • After a weight training session your body continues to burn calories at a higher rate as building muscle increases your metabolism long term.
  • You will tone up without bulking up.  Women simply doing have the ability to gain size like men do.
  • You will create a stronger more functional body that will help you with everyday tasks such as carry the shopping and lifting the children. 
  • Increases your bone density which will help to ward offosteoporosis in years to come.
  • Prevents injuries such a back pain which I know is a big problem with women of childbearing age.
  • Lastly is makes you toned, leaner and fitter which ultimately makes for a healthier and happier you.

So next time you walk past the weight section thinking it is just for men stop and give it a try.

  1. I can’t say I’ve ever tried weights, I do like yoga though. 🙂
    Might try weights, I could do with extra strength in my upper arms – I’m such a weakling!

    Well done. #FitnessTuesday

  2. Great to hear you are sticking to your plan and have managed to lose more weight. I can only agree that losing slower but steadily will take you to where you want to be. Losing fast is usually gaining it back fast too. I have never been a fan of weights and weight lifting, but liked reading all the positives about why it’s good to go for it, and who knows, maybe even I will start! Thanks for linking again #FitnessTuesday @Fitness4Mamas

  3. Well done 🙂 I’m aiming to be at my perfect weight by the end of the year. I already have back hip and leg issues but think I’m going to try my weights again now you’ve inspired me! I need to strengthen my back.
