Weight loss, monthly topic and intermediate exercise.

I’m new to Scholars and am focusing on weight loss. I read that it is recommended to focus on one thing at a time- does this include leaving the monthly topic work until I am finished with my weight loss goals? Also I am planning on using an intermediate workout program I signed up for which includes weights and tabata 30 minutes/day, 5 days/week. Is this counterproductive as it is more intense than just walking/yoga recommended during weight loss, however it isn’t super high intensity or really long so I’m just curious what to plan for. Thank you! (I can’t seem to find the previously answered questions under this ask a question form like in the business section).
