I bought Tony Little's Rock n Roll stepper sometime in August and have been doing the recommended "15 mins for every other day" schedule. So far my results feel positive and jeans fit me a little differently. It motivated me to change my diet a bit too (more fiber and lean protein, but need more veggies tbh lol).
It's more fun than my elliptical
Has anyone else tried this stepper before? It would be great to know someone got results after using for awhile.
Also during this period of health improvement, I discovered a few favorite healthy foods. Instead of peanut butter, I buy Trader Joe's version "Better 'N Peanut Butter". It was slightly sweeter than I expected and I love pairing it with apples and whole grain pretzel sticks
I also like Trader Joe's whole grain pita pockets that puff up in the toaster when ready
Gyros is one of my favorite foods but the portions can be huge, so I end up dividing to make maybe 3 pita pockets. Also the pita is great with hummus yum.
I'm not really a fad dieter so these little changes and substitutions seem to be working for me. Instead of weight loss, I try focusing on overall health/nutrition. Also when I weigh myself, I think of my weight in ranges so if I gain a lb, it won't bug me for the rest of the day. I've never been anorexic and this is probably the skinniest I've been since junior high.
As Tony Little says in his workout vid (he's kinda cute in those black spanx haha), gotta set goals
My longterm goal is to be able to run a mile without stopping or wanting to keel over. In high school, I could do two miles and I was heavier. So it's realistic that I can do one mile when I'm lighter hehe
Second longterm goal is to be at the 100-105 lb range. I'm at 108-113 range right now so still got some work to do
