Question: Working out & jogging:

This is more of a question post and Twitter doesn’t give me enough space…

I workout every day doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. In a couple days, once the 30 days is over, I plan on alternating between other videos (weight training & cardio) but will be doing a workout DVD 6 days a week. I’d like to also start doing c25k which is 3 days a week. I’ve heard on Jillian Michaels podcast (& other places) that it’s best to workout in the morning or early day because your body continues to burn calories & fat from your meals as the day goes on (maybe I’m not saying it right). It’s also more effective to do all your working out together to keep your heart rate up. Since I’m home with an infant I’m usually only able to fit in the 30 minute DVD during her 11am nap. I’m thinking of jogging in the evening after dinner which would be around 8pm because that’s when it’ll work best for me, it’s not too hot & it’ll be getting dark (so people won’t see me that well, hehe).

What’s your thoughts on that? I know any working out is better than none but I want all my hard work to be very effective.

  1. Personally I do it when I have time. What’s “better” for you is that you are doing it in the first place – you will benefit regardless, physically and mentally 🙂 the only thing I recommend is that you don’t do it on a full stomach. At least wait 30-60 minutes after dinner so you don’t get a cramp in your belly.

  2. I agree with Renée. Workout when it’s best for you. Don’t worry about when you’ll get the most burn or anything like that.

    And I don’t do all my working out at one time. I usually do my runs in the morning, sleep (I work 3rd shift), and then do some strength training.

    I also agree with not running on a full tummy. You’ll just be miserable. 🙂

    Good for you for completing the 30 Day Shred too! I have yet to do it longer than one day. Haha
