I recently started to go back to the gym again. I go 5 days a week and also walk in the evenings with my neighbor. We don't eat much junk maby once a week we have take out but i mostly cook our meals. We have two weaknesses and those are desserts and alcohol, by any means we don't get drunk every day but at the end of the day we like to have a beer, glass of wine or maby a mixed drink. I just don't know how to boost my metabolism. After the twins it just seems to be so much harder...
Anybody have some tips or is in the same boat?
I think the gym and walking is a good start. I have found it take awhile for you metabolism to kick in. How long have you been walking and going to the gym??? Welcome to fitday and good luck.
