The backstory for today's TIOT goes a little something like this - I have a friend who graduated with a degree in Exercise Science and she's currently in grad school to earn her Physical Therapy degree and just in general she's really fit and likes to workout and such. She was a 3 star athlete in high school, so it's comes pretty 2nd nature for her. She lives a little over an hour away now, so she's not my workout buddy or anything, but we do talk frequently and I very, very frequently ask her for workout advice and just general questions about this healthy lifestyle stuff.
Last night we were facetiming and I mentioned that I felt as if I was doing a fairly decent job with my eating and I really wanted to spend more time getting better with my workouts. I think that's my weak spot and I think that if I devoted a little more time making working out a normal part of my routine then I'd be a lot better off and a lot closer to my goals. SO, she made a suggestion and we ended up spending the next half hour coming up with my new 2 week plan.
I figure if I can stick with my plan for 2 weeks then I can re-evaluate and decide which parts worked and which didn't.
Here's the crazy plan..
Tuesday (4/22) - Run
Wednesday (4/23) - Gym Workout
Thursday (4/24) - Pinterest Workout
Friday (4/25) - Run
Saturday (4/26) - Long Walk In St. Louis
Sunday (4/27) - Rest Day
Monday (4/28) - Gym Workout
Tuesday (4/29) - Run
Wednesday (4/30) - Pinterest Workout
Thursday (5/1) - Gym Workout
Friday (5/2) - Run
Saturday (5/3) - Long Walk
Sunday (5/4) - Rest Day
Monday (5/5) -Pinterest Workout
Tuesday (5/6) - Re-evaluate
Two things you'll notice -
1. There's no real rhyme or reason to the order of workouts
2. I'm doing a ton of different workouts
I have a lot of reasons for this, but basically I want to try out a few different things and try a few different combinations of things. I also want to rely a lot less on workout dvds. I also want to avoid boredom. And a few more reasons but blah blah blah, you don't care. There are a TON of workouts on Pinterest, so I really want to try a few out.
So what about you guys? What are you doing to stay fit and active and healthy? Workouts I need to be doing? Anything else you want to throw at me? Always willing to listen, because I can always use some advice!
