Workout Routine: Make it and then Break it
Routine is great.
Getting into a routine can be the best thing that will happen for you workout-wise. A set schedule of when you work out is one of the best ways to consistently get to the gym. Once you keep that consistency up you'll be SO much more likely to lose weight, and see the results you want.
HOWEVER, be careful that you don't get so set in your workout routine that your body becomes accustomed and slows down your progress.
Change in your routine is good! Mix up what you do for your cardio. Try adding in some higher intensity intervals or increasing your time. Add weights into your schedule, and keep that routine changing as well. Increase the weight your using, add some balancing, rotate your exercises. Variety in your workouts not only help you avoid boredom, but will keep you working harder, and keep those muscles "confused," so to speak. Don't let yourself get comfortable.
Progress comes from change!!
