My plan is to go to the gym 4 or 5 times a week.
There is one nearby that has an indoor track that is 228 meters / lap. I started out by running for 10 minutes, then a rowing machine for 10 minutes. I then would go straight to the weights and do a mini circuit hitting the major muscles. I took no breaks in between exercises.
Now, I usually run for 20 minutes, go straight to a rowing machine and do that for 10 to 20 minutes. I also occasionally squeeze in cycling on a Lifecycle exercise bike for 20 min as well as 2 sets of the weight circuit. Once a week I'd do everything a little longer.
I have definitely improved in these few weeks at it. I am also starting to feel better
I have lost 5.6 pounds since January 1st.
