    Cardio dilemma

    Hi all

    Been long time since on forum and got myself stuck in fitness rut.

    I've booked a holiday for Jan 15 and given myself too much of a challenge to lose significant amount of weight(4-5 stone :-( )

    I had joined gym and was given a program, cardio based but slipped away. I was hoping to up my cardio exercise to 5 days a week, 1-2 hrs.

    I was hoping for maximum weight loss by possibly doing treadmill via HIT for 50-60 mins on walking basis, x trainer 25 mins and exercise bike for 10-15 mins. Is that too much?

    I'm gutted that my confidence over took and now I've gor my dream holiday and now left myself too much to do.

    Really appreciate your thoughts

    Have you tried any classes yet? Does your gym do them? I find they're more beneficial for me because I get bored doing cardio looking at the telly. Eg I enjoy body pump and today I burnt 600kcals, I like the classes because I feel they work more parts of my body & time flies!!
    Ps, I also got myself stuck in a fitness rut and I'm dragging myself out of it kicking and screaming!!
