Happy Friday everyone! Ahhh I love weekends and I’m very excited just to relax 🙂 . It’s been colder than cold for the past week, and I think it’s time to get cozy and watch movies. This morning I sweat it out on the elliptical for 40 minutes, then tried a Drop Anywhere and Do circuit from FitSugar. This total body circuit takes about 18 minutes, which was just what I needed today. I’ll definitely be doing it again!
I only have one class at 8am on Fridays so I am pretty psyched. I get the entire day to chill, do homework… maybe workout some more ;). I came home to a very nice surprise… from ehhem…. a secret admirer who’s name only I know… 🙂
…Yep, I am a pretty happy, lucky girl at the moment.
But enough of that and back to fitness.
The plan for Monday-Sunday is as follows:
Monday: 40 min. cardio + a total body circuit
Tuesday: 60 min. cardio + abs
Wednesday: 40 minutes cardio + a total body circuit
Thursday: 60 min. cardio + abs
Friday: 40 minutes. cardio + total body circuit
Sat/Sun: rest one of the days, do 60 minutes cardio for the other.
Monday, wednesday, friday are my shorter school days which leaves more time for strength circuits. I haven’t really been doing an hour of cardio lately, but want to build up to it. Looks like a decent plan, eh?
Making fitness plans and goals help to structure my workouts. I’ve heard that when sticking to a fitness plan, it’s good to make a change every two weeks. This helps to improve fitness levels and mix things up. Maybe in a couple of weeks I’ll add in some more interval workouts or something like that.
Do you use a specific workout plan? What plans work best for you?
Even on these super-cold, dark mornings I’ve gotten my
ass butt to the gym by 6am. Yea I’ve thought about staying in bed (especially on this freezing friday!), but I resisted the urge to cuddle with my warm blankets, decided to lace up my shoes and did work at the rec center. I have to say, resisting the urge to be a lazy bum feels AWESOME.
Have a great weekend :).
