Sunday Sweats: Start.

Alright, so I've already admitted to not being great at sticking to schedules.  Exercise schedules are probably the hardest to stick to, right above waking up on time.  Anyway.

I've been complaining a lot lately about how much weight I've gained over the past few months, how I want to work out but don't have motivation, blah blah blah.  So, now that summer is halfway over I've realized that my pity party went on a bit longer than it should have and its about damn time I get over it and do something about it.  This is part of that something.

I've decided to partake in the "Sunday Sweats" series to hold myself accountable and put it all out there for the whole internet to see what I have or haven't been keeping up with.  I tend to take my goals more seriously when they're written down and in my face for constant motivation. So, hopefully this helps.

Being that this is the beginning of my exercise accountability, and I didn't really work out at all last week, except for the impromptu "Assassin" workout that Joey pushed me into (Literally.  He literally pushed me off the couch to do it.), I figured I should just start of by setting my goals for this coming week.  My fitness plan, if you will.  And is it just me, or does anyone else think of the sloth meme when you hear the word "fitness"?  Okay, maybe it is just me.

Sundays - These are for resting and evaluating what worked, what didn't work, what I need to improve on, etc.
Mondays - Since I'm starting the C25k program this week, Mondays will be for running and yoga.

Tuesdays - I re-downloaded the Nike Training app so Tuesdays will be for HIIT workouts.

Wednesdays - Continuing on with running and yoga.

Thursdays - Another round of HIIT for the week.

Fridays - Running and yoga again.

Saturdays - Rest.  Because I already know I'll be in no mood for working out on the weekends.

Extras - I'm going to try to get back into my morning yoga routine.  I used to be able to wake up early and get a sun salutation in before starting my day, but summer has made me lazy.  I've also been doing squats regularly after starting the 30-day squat challenge with my sister last month so I'm just going to continue doing it.

Dang.  My plan looks pretty aggressive when it's down on paper, but I think I can make it work.  The C25k doesn't seem to be that bad and the yoga I can handle.  I think trying to get back into the HIIT workouts is what will make it hard for me.  I used to do BodyRock.tv HIIT workouts three times a week and they killed me but I loved the results I saw and how I felt after doing them so I'm excited to get that feeling back again.

Here's to the tiring week ahead!

  2. I know that you are going to nail your work outs!!! It will just take a week or two of getting your feet wet regularly, then it will be so routine for you!!! Your schedule looks a lot like mine except I do 2 days of running and 2 days of HITT or weights. You got this!!!

  3. Having a plan is the first step, so good luck to ya! I'm hoping my workout buddy at work can keep me accountable to at least going once a week!

  4. That's good that you have a schedule down! I don't have an actual schedule, until July, I was walking outside for at least an hour 4 to 6 days a week, but the last couple of weeks have been stressful so I haven't been doing my regular routine.
