I cannot believe we are already in month four of 2012. Holy moly.
It’s a pretty fantastic thing to be able to say I’ve now had a solid three month recommitment to working out! And even when I’m having an off day or feeling a bit off my game, I don’t feel like it’s going to rock the commitment boat! Don’t you love that feeling?!!
Last week pretty much rocked! I write up my workout plans on Monday mornings and I’m always curious to see how close to these plans I can stick. Some weeks it’s a real challenge and inevitably something always gets derailed (this week it was Bodypump…booo) but I sort of purposely over-plan so I don’t feel like I bombed when something doesn’t work out.
Tuesday – 20 minutes ARC + 20 minutes treadmill with some truly education reading…
Wednesday – Lower Body Blast (coming soon!) + ARC trainer
Thursday – finished work too late to make Bodypump so the happy pupper and I took an evening walk to the park instead…
Holiday Friday – even though I had the day off and spent the morning drinking coffee with a friend I still managed a 30 minute walk in the sun with the pupper + a 30 minute sweaty strength training session. Good Friday indeed!
Saturday – we planned a leisurely walk with the dogs along Island View Beach into our plans…between cider tasting and date night dinner. :)
And Sunday I happily laid like broccoli on the sofa.
I do foresee gym days becoming a bit fewer now that the weather is truly getting clearer. I will not feel guilty for enjoying the sun with my dog and my honey instead of hanging out indoors with equipment and earphones. I will, however, maintain a solid routine and bursts of calorie burning!
What’s your favourite warm weather activity to stay fit? I’m thinking backyard badminton and hikes at the local beaches and parks.
