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.

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.

Hey! Where'd you go? I wanted to weigh in on the comment about how having an off day doesn't derail your committment..... I think that is the most important difference for me this time around. Glad you are feeling that way too :)
