The New Workout Plan

Friday, March 06, 2009

I've decided that since I can't seem to do anything and stick to it unless it's written down, I'm going to plan out my workouts for the coming week in my blog, and that way you guys can hold me accountable and yell at me via the Internet when I don't comply. Sound good?

I've been feeling pretty miserable and fatty all week, and it's a waste of precious time. I should be pumped about having things like arms and legs and lungs that can jump around and do stuff. Instead, I just spent my Friday evening eating homemade peanut butter and Reese's pieces cookies*, reading magazines, and playing Guitar Hero instead of going to the gym.

Here are my workouts for the coming week, beginning tomorrow...

Saturday, March 7:
-Running 45 minutes (intervals)

Sunday, March 8:
-Running 45 minutes (incline)
-Upper body strength training

Monday, March 9:
-Mixed cardio 45 minutes
-Lower body strength training

Tuesday, March 10:
-Rest Day (Maaaaybe easy cardio, like a walk, if I'm feeling it)

Wednesday, March 11:
-Running 45 minutes (intervals)

Thursday, March 12:
-Running 45 minutes (incline)
-Upper body

Friday, March 13:
-Cardio mix, 45 minutes
-Lower body

Brutal. Let's see how this goes.

*recipe for best and easiest cookies ever:
-1 cup peanut butter
-1 egg
-1/2 cup sugar (I used Splenda, because I like chemicals!)
-a handful of yummies (optional)...can be chocolate chips, M&Ms, Reese's Pieces, Smarties, etc.

1. Preheat oven to 325.
2. Mix all ingredients.
3. Drop batter in spoonfuls 2" apart on a cookie sheet.
4. Flatten cookies with a fork.
5. Bake for 15 minutes.
