I am into the second week of cd and feel alot more energetic and theres only so much cleaning in the house that you can do. My partner has just purchased me a cross trainer machine and was wondering would this be ok to use? Also could anyone recommend any other exercises that will prevent me from having flabby skin later on when i lose the weight. I have currently just started doing kettle bell exercises 3 days a week are great. Most cdc's have said that I am not supposed to be doing any exercises but surely you have to do some? Any advice would be great.
