The Monday Sweat Report

I hope everyone a great weekend and now it’s time to get down to business. Recapping my workouts from last week.


Sunday – no workout
Monday – 30 minutes on treadmill, 20 minutes lower body toning
Tuesday – 20 minutes on treadmill
Wednesday – no workout
Thursday– no workout
Friday – 30 minutes on treadmill, 20 minutes upper body toning
Saturday– no workout
Sunday – no workout

I am finding that I really do like combining cardio with a toning session and my ultimate goal is to do this at least four times a week with a wildcard dvd workout on Sunday.Ā  Aside from my treadmill we do have an exercise bike set-up but I’m not sure if I like it. Right now, I prefer the treadmill to the bike but I really like the potential for a ton of calories to be burned on the bike. Though, last week there was a segment on cycling and the effects on our legs. Since I had to leave for work I couldn’t watch the segment. I am pear-shaped and the last thing I want is BIGGER legs. I want toned legs. Defined legs. Not bigger. Nooo. Then again, it’s not like I’ll be on the bike 4-5 a week. Nooo.

I may give the bike another chance. After all, it’s right there in front of the TV. It’s a shame to waste such a prime location. šŸ™‚

Is there any workout that you’re not in LOVE with that you do because it’s a good calorie burner for you?

  1. My stationary bike sits by the TV too but I never figured out a routine to use it. I just can’t sit there and pedal…

  2. I know. I guess it would be the same as walking on the treadmill (my bike does have a bunch of prepreammed workouts) but I think my issue is that I’m not comfortable. I guess I will try again. It’s there. šŸ™‚

  3. To be honest I don’t really like walking. I know that sounds crazy because we do it every day, but as for walking on a treadmill or in town, I really don’t like it. I have a treadmill in my room that is awaiting a part to operate again. I am hoping that I can get back into walking and eventually work up to jogging again.

    1. You’re not alone in not liking walking as exercise. What I love about it is that it’s easy, the treadmill is convenient and I don’t have to go outdoors. When I walk outdoors it’s always with my dogs and they aren’t good for consistence cardio burn. One is on a mission to get to the next spot and the other is hanging behind because he’s a strolling kind of guy. LOL. I believe we should do what we love and let the rest fall aside. Now I just have to practice what I preach. šŸ™‚

  4. I practice Bikram yoga, and I love it and hate it all at once. And then, when I’m there doing it, I love and hate postures that I’m doing. So I make myself go when I don’t want to (and I’m always happy I did), and I make myself do postures I hate (which I suppose is a good thing!).

    1. I’ve heard it said that the pose you dread the most is the pose you need to do. Maybe there’s some truth in that and maybe I need the bike more than I realize. šŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting!

  5. I like to do cardio and weights the same day too. I am not in love with any flexibility classes but I “try” to get one in every now and then. I know I need to do it weekly, but I just can’t. When I get to the point that I need to do more workouts at home (new baby or something, lol), I will have that sweet spot set up right in front of the TV too šŸ™‚

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels like this. Maybe when the Tour de France happens later this year I’ll be motivated to ride the bike. LOL.

  6. I’m only in like with running when I’m training. I love the races but everything in between is kind of yucky! šŸ™‚ Great workout week!

    1. Thanks, Carla! I love your goal for 2015. I’m very excited for you.
