Hi everyone, fitness n00b here. Just recently I started working out at the gym. Generally I do 40 minutes on an elliptical, 3 sets of crunches to the point where i have a good burn going, and then either arms, legs or back/chest/shoulders depending on the day (I'm still trying to figure out a regimen when it comes to weights). We generally go to the gym about 3 times a week, sometimes four. My goals are to lose fat, gain stamina (I'd like to eventually be able to run 3 miles in 20 minutes), build a little muscle, and tone what muscle I do gain. I don't care if I lose much weight, as long as I feel better. Currently I'm around 250 and am 6'1". My diet has improved a bit over the last several months. I started eating oatmeal in the mornings for the fiber and to help drop my cholesterol, and switched from normal soda to diet. I also started getting a weekly shipment of organic vegetables from a local farm here so I have more healthy stuff around the house to cook with and as a deterrent from going the quick and easy fast food route. Anyhow, I'm interested in what people do to get/stay limber around here. I'd like to be able to touch my toes some day. Thanks in advance for any suggestions and feel free to comment on how retarded I am or whatever.
