Just recently I've started 12 week weight loss plan (17 stone, 5'8+ feet), and I just completed week 1.
I'm doing well with calorie count and healthy dieting, however, moving to the week 2, I found out I have some difficulties with exercising.
I do not want to run what so ever, because I do not want to stick outside much, but I love swimming, so is it actually okay if instead of doing 150 minutes of Couch to 5K weekly, I will do 150 minutes of swimming?
If so, are there any suggestions for what kind of exercises I should do in the pool (except actually swimming, it's obvious)?
Also, I do not really get the strength exercise part on the chart.
What is this? What should I do? How long is "1 session"?
And finally, a need an advice.
I will be going for vocation for 2 weeks in 2 days to the completely different country to see my family, and I am not sure I will be able to keep it up with that 12-week plan there, so as I probably won't be able to go swimming for those two weeks, and I'll have to attend few birthdays, and even wedding, what means extra calories from drinks and food are just unavoidable, and even more then that, I probably won't be able to access internet either, to count calories and etc., so what should I do?
Would it be a better to just stop this diet plan for those 2 weeks and just keep it up with a more healthier diet and not going crazy over tasty rubbish food, and then just starting it all over from where I stopped when I come back?
Or does anyone has a better suggestion about this situation?
Anyway, thank you for going through all these question I got.
I will really appreciate your answers and suggestions : )
