    ok so i've just concluded that I'm overweight (not obese) just overweight.

    To get met to a reasonable shape, and also keep onto my education (in year 12 currently) i've came up with a method of excercise that i'll do every morning and evening, but the problem is, i dont have membership or acess to a gym, so i'm doing it in my house.

    It works like this:

    I'll download 3 songs in my phone (each 3-5 minutes long) and i'll wear it before my excercise. Then once the first song starts playing, i'll run up and down my stairs till the song finishes. Then i'll drink some water and then for the next song, i'll jog in my position for the entire song (no breaks in between). Then for the last song, i'll do the upper body twist till the third song finished.

    Then i'll repeat this in the evenings, and will avoid eating heavy items and drink plenty of water.

    If i keep this up like this for this week (its half term so i got time in the morning) but then when school starts, i'll do it only in evenings, considering that i'll have to ride to school in my bike for 20 minutes.

    My quesiton is, will this be efficient enough?

    Excercise is generally not an efficient way to lose weight. Your 9-15 minute routine would probably burn 150 calories at the absolute most, and many people subconsciously compensate for excercise by eating more. If you want results, you need to look at your diet. Aim to lose 1lb per week, no more.
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
