In addition to pulling together my Workout Log page yesterday, I also set up a workout schedule for myself. The schedule is not set in stone but will be more of a guide for myself so that I can stay on track.
As I mentioned yesterday, I have been slacking on my workouts lately. I can attribute that 100% to not setting up a schedule for myself! I am the type of person that NEEDS a schedule or a plan. It keeps me sane (and accountable). I thrive with order and structure in my life!
I also finished off the last of the cantaloupe I cut up yesterday. We managed to eat a whole cantaloupe in under 24 hours…it was delicious!!
Today’s “scheduled” workout was a chest strength training session and a Couch to 5K run. I know I just did a C25K run yesterday, but with my new schedule, I needed to run two days in a row to set up for the remainder of the week.
My workout today was great – by the end my arms (and chest) definitely felt like Jell-O!! Here’s what I did:
- Bench Press w/ Barbell, 4 sets
- Super Set #1
- Incline Bench Press w/ Dumbbells, 4 sets
- Incline Flyes w/ Dumbbells, 4 sets
- Super Set #2
- Decline Bench Press w/ Dumbbells, 4 sets
- Pushups (Girly), 4 sets
In between each set, I rested for about 45 seconds. The minimal rest kept my heart rate up and allowed for a quick, efficient workout
Despite the chilly temperatures (36*) I was determined to run outside. I wasn’t able to run outside all week and I much prefer the outdoors to the treadmill. I did Week 3 Day 3 of C25K on the track at the high school next to our neighborhood. I’m not sure how much distance I covered because I don’t have any way to track that – yet.
Post workout fuel – a Mochaccino protein shake!
I worked around the house the rest of the morning and finally stopped for 10 minutes to shove my face full of food!
Lunch was a quesadilla made with some leftover shredded chicken (from Thursday’s dinner), shredded cheese and taco sauce. I had a handful of carrots on the side, unfortunately I ran out of hummus earlier in the week so the carrots were just naked.
The afternoon consisted of more chores. Remind me not to let my ironing pile up. I spent a good hour ironing work blouses that have accumulated for several weeks months.
I finally got a few minutes to sit down and immediately made myself a yogurt bowl.
I love me a good yogurt bowl – peach Chobani, frozen blueberries and granola!! The perfect afternoon snack!
Now to decide what’s for dinner!
Question: Do you set a workout schedule or just wing it?
