Hey everyone. So, I've been steadily gaining weight over the past while. A year ago I weighed in at like 200 pounds, I've gained between 10 and 15, fluctuating since then. Mostly the reason I'm concerned is because I'm pretty sure the reason this is happening is because my lifestyle is very sedentary.
I try to walk at least 30 minutes per day, but that's only moderate exercise at best. I mean, it's something, but I'm under no delusions that walking will maintain my weight and health. Other than that, I get some exercise during the week but nothing in much bulk. Some dancing one night per week for a few hours, but it's rarely strenuous, singing, that sort of thing.
So this brings me to my question. If I go to sleep and wake up half an hour earlier, I can get to work an hour before I usually start. I would like to make an attempt to start a fitness program for myself, but I am woefully uninformed. I used some google-fu, but to be perfectly honest, a lot of this stuff doesn't make sense to me for various reasons.
Given the schedule I am willing to attempt, 1 hour per day in the morning, M-F, and my goal of weight loss/maintenance first, and then also general health and fitness:
1. What is a good workout to start with?
2. How can I adapt that as I go? Will I need to?
3. How do fitness? Etc.
I will gladly accept links to places with reading material of course, as long as that reading material is for beginners. I know next to nothing about this.
For reference, my goal weight would be 190.
