90 min of cardio that is great.
Here is an idea - I go to the gym and I had an apptn with a trainer last week and this is what he suggested to me to lose weight. Do intervals.
What I have been doing is walking on the treadmill at 4.0 (speed) and 4.0 (incline) for 2 minutes, then I run at (5.0 speed) for 1-1.5 min and then walk again and I do this on and off for 10-20 min.
I went to the gym Tuesday & Wednesday of this week and I was going to go today at lunch time but I have a meeting tonight for work and I don't want to get all hot and then come back to work (usually I don't care but tonight I figured I should look some what presentable).
I hope this helps! Good luck! I have about 30-35 lbs. I want to lose so I have been cranking up the workouts to 3-5x/week if possible.
Yay Heidi! You ARE doing great, keep it up!

I have been doing intervals. I pick the pre-programmed weight loss thing on whatever cardio machine I'm using. When I get good enough for the tread mill, I'll try what you suggested. Thanks.
