hello everyone...thanks for taking the time to read this.
I'm currently underweight, barely. I'm 5' 9" and about 134. My prob is that I feel I don't look underweight...especially in my legs and buttocks (runs in the family). I feel very uncomfortable in a swimsuit, and with this being my goal I've really been trying to lose the fat. After my first baby I was 17% fat, after the second and BFeeding for 15 months I'm 31%...OUCH!
I started on the Bowflex 2 months ago and am pretty consistent with my strengh training. I do legs 3x's/week and arms and abs 3x's/week. I have put off cardio due to an ankle injury. Now I feel my ankle is ready for the different range of motions involved in cardio.
I was thinking of doing cardio 5x's/week M-Fri for at least 30 minutes each after my strength training. I have changed my diet drastically since starting on the Bowflex by eating frequent (5x's day) small, healthy meals. Plus I drink a lot of water.
Should I be ready for a swimsuit in 3-4 months following this type of schedule? Even shorts would be nice (I really hate my legs).
Any suggestions or comments or answers regarding my regime would be greatly appreciated. I love information about fitness.
