Question by AZNLUCK: Fitness plan?
I’m starting a fitness plan for the new year, I’m planning to start doing yoga and pilates once a week along with a sensible diet. Does anyone have any guidelines or basics to help me get started?

    I love yoga…it’s fabulous for stretching you out and increasing flexibility…pilates I have less exprience with, but strengthening your core is a good thing…

    These aren’t great weightloss exercise regimes though so it depends on what your goal is. If you want to lose pounds, add some cardio to it. If you just seek to strengthen and tone, these will be great.

    I wish you the best of luck in reaching your goal soon and maintaining it.

    So far your on the right track! I suggest that after about 2 weeks of doing your yoga/pilates you may want to add 2 more days and continue to add more days until you reach 5 days a week.

    With your diet though I don’t like using the word diet.. Healther eating habits I suggest you incorporate in that no fried foods, cutting out/down on sodas and drink plenty of water.

    Treat yourself once a week on something fried if you must but I wouldn’t over do it ( it’s just not good for you no matter how you look at it)

    If your not a water fan there are many flavored waters out on the market today. Tropicana has one “Summer Lemon” it’s simply awesome!! Give it a try to get your daily water intake.

    You may or may not be doing this to lose weight but just by doing these little things eating healther is simply the best for your body anyway… You can’t go wrong!

    I wish you the best of luck with your new goals!! I’m sure you will do great!

    Happy Holidays & New Year!!
