    Thought I'd start keeping a diary and see if the amount of exercise I do affects my weight loss. Planning on going running for 30 mins 3X a week and doing dumbell exercises 6 times a week (alternating between upper and lower body). will also add in a few crunches and the odd session on my thigh trainer.

    Smart Girls Do Dumbells is a book by Judith Sherman-Wolin. I had never used dumbells before I got it because I thought all you could do with them was bicep curls but I have now discovered that they are good for a whole body workout. The book is aimed at women who want a toned body, not huge muscles and it has detailed descriptions of each exercise along with suggested reps based on your current ability. In the back is a plan to get you through the first 30 days. It also has ab exercises and stretches to include.

    I got my book from Amazon and would highly recommend it.

    Have done day 21 today. Its a take it easy day with only one set of ab exercises and a few stretches so I might add a few arm exercises later.
    Planning to do either a run or 30 mins on the stepper later.

    Hey keep up the good work. Quick question, do you do your cardio before or after your weights?
