Good luck girl!

I highly suggest a book called ‘the new rules of lifting for women’. It has amazing strength training routines that will help you tone up! It’s a six month program so if you start now you will look epic for your wedding!

For cardio I can’t say enough about running. I’m just starting (finally can run 30 minutes straight!) but it’s an amazing workout. If you’re just starting running I also suggest the Couch 2 5km program (http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml). 

To get some massive burn at the gym I also love the stair climber and rowing machine. Just keep adding variety so you don’t get bored! I’ve lost about 12lbs so far with 15 to go.

I agree with Emshaw – running really is the best form of cardio and the Couch to 5K program is a great one!

Welcome and good luck on your fitness journey!! !

If you’re just starting and want to go 4 times/week, I really recommend that you do different workouts everytime… Otherwise after 3 weeks you might be very bored! I know I was! So now I alternate between running, spinning, martial arts and dance lessons… I am always looking forward to my next run since I don’t do this all the time!  Good luck!

I agree with Emshaw in that lifting is a good idea.  Weight training has been shown to speed up weight loss more than cardio alone.  Best of luck to you!
