MY PLANS

Let me start by saying I get bored easily. I need things to be changing up constantly. I also need everything to be planned out. I cannot just go to the gym without having a plan in place. So in my case, I have three different options, two that can be done at any time of the day (I like the flexibility). One, deals with group classes, that I don’t have to do much, if any, thinking- I have an instructor telling me what to do. Perfect! Less work for me and I feel like I get my money’s worth of my gym membership!

In the short time that I had a personal trainer (just 8 sessions to help get me started at the gym), we worked on different types of workouts that did not require a lot of machine use. I use some equipment like a stabilizing ball and free weights which is why I can’t do these workouts at home. Most of them are very basic moves. Again, peeps, I am not a trainer so please take that into consideration when checking this out. I will list YouTubers, personal trainers, and anyone that I believe to be more useful to you so that you can get your plan together in a separate blog post!

Sunday: Workout 1 [ Full Body ]

Monday: Workout 2 [ ABS & Squats ]

Tuesday: Workout 3 [ Arms & Abs ]| No Legs (hurt from so many squats)

Wednesday: Rest Day | Walking my dogs (longer period of time than normal) | Option 2: Cardio/Treadmill day

Wednesday can be used as my “makeup” workout day in case I miss another day of a workout

Thursday: Workout 1 [ Full Body ]

Friday: Workout 2 [ ABS & Squats ]

Saturday: Workout 3 [ Arms & Abs ]| No Legs (hurt from so many squats)

I keep all details of these workouts on my favorite list app Wunderlist! https://www.wunderlist.com/ I am able to check them off as I do the workouts- then uncheck them to add them back for the next workout. No, I am not sponsored, I really use this for all of my list needs (besides google keep).

| YouTube Option |

Each of the options below offers a wide range of workouts that can target different parts of the body. You can create a playlist of their workouts or use what they have provided. The best part is that you can do these workouts at any time of the day and can do it as long as you have access to the internet. These are just a few of my favorite YouTubers!

| Other Options |

Running/Walking with my dogs. I have a few apps on my phone that can help with timing me when it comes to running and walking. The one that I love is the Get Running app LINK: http://splendid-things.co.uk/getrunning/ . It talks you through a nine-week training plan. Get Running will gradually ease you into running, even if you’ve never run before. Once you complete the plan, you’ll be ready to run a 5K. I personally will repeat the first week over and over again since I don’t use it often enough – it’s just a workout replacement.

| Conclusion |

I love having options. I can’t fathom doing the same workout all the time. And my mood changes, so I like workout similar to my mood. If I want to relax and stretch because I feel stiff then I can do yoga. If I don’t want any jumping then I can do my planned workouts or take a yogalates class. If I want to move to some music then Zumba it is! With having this ‘plan of options’ in place I know that I can help prevent a freakout moment when I don’t know what to do. And this works for me. What do you need to do to make sure you get your workout in?
