Another question for those of you who are maintaining...what kind of exercise are you doing and how often?
Right now, I alternate weights one day (with maybe a short, easy jog after) and a day of more intense cardio. I like the cardio to shed fat and the weights to tone up my muscles. Should I stick with this concept once I move from losing to maintaining? I might be able to shorten the workouts a little or lessen the intensity since I'll only be maintaining, but I assume it is still important to stay toned up, right?
I was thinking maybe some pilates might even help be kind of cardio/kind of strength training that I might really enjoy once I'm in my maintenance stage. (Weird for me to be thinking that the maintenance stage might not be too far off...)
