Ok so basically just started exercising about a month ago but am realizing I could be more effective with my time in the gym. My goal is to loose weight and tone up, I want to be healthy and fit and not over weight.. As of today I am 222lbs, but some how last week I was 217. I started around 225 and my goal is 170. Right now I'm not very active in daily activities so the gym is really the only exercise I get. I've been focusing mainly on cardio with limited weight training as well. I've gotten to the point that an hour on the elliptical is pretty easy and sometimes go a little longer. Anyways I do not need to ramble on as I am looking for advice and or a good work out routine to shed some lbs. I know diet plays a big part in this and I have been working hard to eat better. I'm averaging 4-5 days a week in the gym but hope to eventually be going 6 days a week. Sometimes I have a hard time finding motivation when it's time to go and then I regret it later on. Any advice would be much appreciated.
