    OK so first things first. Congrats you're now one of the 68% of people making a new years resolution. And, the 40% who say it to be related to health and fitness. You are also more likely to drop this whole idea of working out within 2 months. 92% likely to in fact. Also, you have a very slim chance of succeeding in your endeavour. Your chances of achieving your goal are only 8%. This means, for every 100 people in your shoes only 8 will carry on to become fit and healthy achieving their set January goal by at the end of the year. That means 92 people will fail.

    Hope that helps.

          this made me laugh, the sister's first few sentences remind me of me aswell, but the rest.. like whoa hold up, those bullet points they're totally happening (in my dreams).

            In my estimation, the hardest thing to do is to stick with it. Many people expect to see results right away; and when they find out that they need to put more effort into it, they give up and stop excercising. The pull down and the row machine are my favorites :D. I don't do much cardio.
            I agree that it takes a lot of discipline to stick with a routine! Any idea what the pull down and row machine is called? I'm imagining something to do with arms?

            Ask the gym instructor for help and change your diet - drink water!

            Initial diagnostic is on the 4th, so that would be a great starting point. Drinking more water is a struggle! Good point, thanks =)

            congratulations :)

            just ensure its a female only gym, keep hydrated (plenty of water), and ask the instructors there.

            insha ' allah it goes awesomely sis :)
            inshaAllah, thanks =)

            Hit the weights more (depending on how much body fat you need to reduce first).
            Increased weight training gives better results & makes you look and feel ahmaazing.
            I hadn't thought of this before. I'll question the instructor about this. Thank you for your input. =)

            to the left, to the right

            and repeat
            You're right about that. I was exhausted after my end-of-the-year cleaning.

            haha, sorry to know you didn't stick to it. Best wishes on being healthier, do share your tips and results! =)

                  Congrats. Gym memberships are such a big waste of money, much like insurance. Very rarely used. Lol.


                  I have a local girls only gym that has nice casual rates. I'm down with that.


                  P.S welcome to the forums, I love your name!

                    Did ya join? Gyms usually offer really good promos at the end or beginning of the year. We can be virtual workout buddies.
