What Time of day.

Have a recovery shake no matter what time of day you work out:

1. Recovery shakes help you reduce soreness, get fitter, faster and have more energy and improve your body composition (less fat and maintain/add muscle)more quickly. if fat-loss is anywhere on your list of priorities.

2. Have a pre-workout shake if you are morning exerciser: You need to have energy to do a workout that is going to get some results. If you are exercising early.

3. Make sure you can sleep: The bedroom is where the magic happens-the recovery magic.If you are an evening exerciser. Usually you body needs at least two hours to slow down enough to actually sleep.

4. Resistance before cardio: Resistance training will yield the highest return for energy invested when it comes to almost anything especially for fat loss.

5. Frequency trumps Duration: Shorter workouts done more other will yield better fat-loss and muscle-building results. So less today and  repeat tomorrow.

6. Have a plan: Preferably a plan: That has a proven track record for delivering safe results for a person like you. If you are mum with a full-Time job,the workout plan that a professional beach volley ball player uses probably isn't going to work for you..

Dearest Michiko san,
Yes, that is all great planning for exercise. Provided you have the time, the weather cooperates, if done outdoors and so on.
Good night sleep is also crucial, that's where healing also takes place.
Love to you dear friend and hope your days are sunny. Here it was a miserable rainy day and rather cold. The weather goes so up and down from sunny and lovely to mean and windy with rain.

Hi Michiko san thank you for your exercise tips. Morning exercise sure needs energy. I have hard time even getting up.. Frequent short workouts sounds good. It must be easier to continue, I think.
Have a great day Michiko san!

Dearest Michiko-san,
Wow, splendid planning for the healthy life and we all need that, my Japanese friend♬♬♬
私個人的には、もう少しstretchの時間を増や左内と、ハハ(^^;) そうすればもっと熟睡出来るかも。

Thank you very much for your wonderful inspiration and motivation.

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
