OK… I’ll pay the $1.
I seriously need a swift kick in the rear when it comes to exercise.
I find myself reminiscing on the Couch to 5K training, when I knew exactly what I needed to do each day. I also felt the panicked feeling when I would miss a day, which some may argue is ‘unhealthy’, but for me, it was motivating and kept me on track.
Since I am forgoing the Couch to 10K training right now, I’ve realized it’s no excuse not to have a schedule. I fight them, but I think I thrive on schedules. So here’s what I’m thinking:
Monday: YMCA : 20 minutes stair stepper & 20 minutes elliptical
Tuesday: YMCA : Yoga 1 hour
Wednesday: YMCA : 20 minutes stair stepper & 20 minutes elliptical
Thursday: 4-5 mile neighborhood walk with the k-deezy, or Yoga
Friday: YMCA : free day (wahoo! ::confetti sprinkles down::) I can take a class, walk inclines on the treadmill, attempt to take on the stair stepper, or do free weights. Whatever I choose, I’ll at least be doing SOMETHING.
Now even though Thursday will be my long walk with bugger, the other days will most likely include a short walk with her. 1/2 mile away is a park where I can let her run free, so I usually walk there with her and let her run while I swing 🙂 So, that will be an extra mile added into my daily routine.
I’m hoping yoga will help with some of the aches I’ve had lately (both knee and back) and help strengthen my muscles and stretch me out. I’ve never been a stair stepper girl, but after your suggestions (thank you, again!), I’m going to give it a go in search of leaner thighs!
Ok, you expert exercisers out there… critique me! Sound like a good game plan?
Hope so… I feel good about it 🙂
