Fitness Journal: Getting Out of Sedentary Life

Fitness Journal: Getting Out of Sedentary Life The past 5 years i have been lazy and that coupled with health issues, I have let go of my fitness. I don't weigh as much as I used to when i had thyroid issues, but i still haven't lost some of my pregnancy weight and am definitely not in shape. Some might argue that round is a shape but i don't even want to humor that anymore. I'm quite serious about losing weight and staying fit (about time huh!!!). I have started going to the gym now and started off with cardio and some exercises for my flabby arms. It's a small step but a steady one nonetheless. I want to make sure that I workout at least 5 times a week and steadily increase the intensity of my workouts. I want to keep  updating my workout routines and track my progress as a way to keep myself on track to workout regularly. 
My Workout Routine: Cardio: Total- 45 mins Treadmill - 20 mins Eliptical - 10 mins Cycling - 10 mins
Upper body/Arm Exercises: Bicep curl - 15reps x 3 sets Front press - 15reps x 3 sets 90 deg raise - 15reps x 3 sets Tricep kickbacks - 15reps x 3 sets Standing shoulder fly - 15reps x 3 sets Reverse Curl - 15reps x 3 sets
Right now I'm only using a 1kg dumbbell and will gradually moving on to bigger weights. I'm not hoping to bulk up or anything but to just tone my body.  Image Source: http://iamthenetconnector.wordpress.com Fitness Journal: Getting Out of Sedentary Life
