Monday Sweat Report

Monday Sweat Report

I’m so happy to report that this past week I kicked a$$ with my workouts. Yes, I did. The main reason I say that is because I had a choice on Thursday to do a workout or not. I chose to do a workout, it was a short workout but it was something. Anytime you choose to do something, you’re successful.

I guess you can tell that I’m pleased with this week in review. I had a couple opportunities to ditch a workout but I’ve set a goal and I’m determined to reach it. If not exceed it. In reviewing the week, I do see that I need to make sure I had in upper body work in the coming weeks.

That was my week, how was your workouts?

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.  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. 🙂

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

With my goal to complete 3-4 workouts a week I thought I would keep myself accountable by posting my previous week’s workouts.

Sunday – no workout
Monday – 40 minutes on treadmill
Tuesday – no workout
Wednesday – no workout
Thursday– 30 minutes on the treadmill & 20 minutes strength training
Friday – no workout
Saturday– no workout
Sunday – Bootcamp dvd

Now in black and white my week wasn’t so great. I’d allowed other things to keep me from doing the workouts I’d wanted to do when I wanted to do them. One of the biggest obstacles was tackling the membership duties for a group I’m volunteering for. I spent Thursday and Friday night, about five hours in total, making sense of the whole renewal process. Now that I’ve done that I am able to manage it in smaller time amounts. January is membership renewal for over 200 members. I’ve also decided that my workout will happen right after I come home. I did that Thursday night and even though I my mind really wanted me to head to computer I headed to the treadmill.

So for this week my arriving back home will go like this: greet dogs, take coat off, drop tote bag, head upstairs, change into workout clothes, get on treadmill, walk then grab some weights, strength train and then shower. Only after all that occurs will there be dinner and anything else I need to get done will get done.

Essentially I’m going to behave as if I am going to a gym straight from work and not allow anything in the house to distract me. Not even the pups. I’ll grab them, take them with me to the treadmill so at least we’re all three together for the 40 minutes.

Fingers-crossed for this week. I intend my next week’s Monday Sweat Report to be a whole lot better.

How to you fit your workouts into your day?
