Welcome to Week 44 of the Frumpy to Fabulous this week’s habit change is to weight train 3 times a week.

Our bodies produce their own calcium when we lift weights and it helps fight Osteoporosis.

You can hire a trainer for a few sessions to get acclimated or you can join a group fitness training class but go at your own pace do not lift to the beat of the music.

  • Aim for 3 times a week-full body circuit or you can break it down into body parts
  • muscle is more dense than fat
  • strength training increases metabolism and burns fat longer than cardio exercise

I hope you are enjoying the Frumpy to Fabulous series, if you have missed any previous weeks you can see them all on the Frumpy to Fabulous Pinterest board.

    Great tips! I don’t have the money for a trainer so I’ve been looking online for videos…. I will admit not as good as a personal trainer, but gets the job done 🙂

  • Shauna Lynn

    This is a great idea! More muscle = more calories burned. Gotta remember that.

  • Crystal Medina

    Great Tips! I just started a strength strength workout I have lost 10 pounds in a month in a half doing cardio (Zumba) not I need muscles lol

    I try to work out more so I definitely will be keeping this in mind.

  • Angie Agerter

    Wow I never knew that our bodies produced their own calcium if we lifted weights, amazing little tidbit!

  • I didn’t know that our bodies produced their own calcium and I should know this but maybe its because I don’t lift weights. I want to go from frumpy to fabulous as well. Loving these posts. 🙂

    I really need to exercise currently I am not doing any exercise. We have a weight set here at home I really have no excuse.

  • Aimee Worley

    I need to commit more to exercise! I try and eat as healthy as possible, but I always too fatigued to work out anymore 🙁

  • Michelle Elizondo

    Being healthy is a life choice…not a life style.

    Osteoporosis runs in my family. I do try to exercise and lift weights whenever possible. I know this is important for me to keep my bones strong.

    So many women feel like weight training is for men, but it really boosts your weight loss when you use it along with cardio.

  • Karen Glatt

    I need to weight train, but I do not. It is a very good thing to do for my bones. I have some weights and I need to get into lifting some weights for my health
