500 fitness minutes until I reach 10,000. 500 spark points until I get a new trophy. 500 seems to be the number of the day or the month rather.
Got to the gym finally last night for 40 minutes on the elliptical. It went so fast. Itís funny how sometimes that can happen. I sat down last night and created a workout plan for the month. Iíve never done that before but Iím going to try it for a month. What do I have to lose?
The plan consists of working out 4 days a week so that I donít get burned out. I planned around nights when I have to be out of town for work and most Fridays. Iím rotating between the following items: 45 minutes on the elliptical, 60 minutes on the bike, 60 minutes of zumba and workouts 1,2, and 3 a trainer gave me a year ago. Workouts 1 and 3 focus on short bursts of cardio, strength training and abs. Workout 2 is 25 minutes on the treadmill and 25 or so strength training exercises that I donít need any equipment for (so I can do part at home).
Iím hoping this will give me more variety, not make me want to scream and I can track my progress. Iím just going to keep trying things until they work. Eventually Iíd like to add a home workout DVD, kickboxing at the gym, cross country skiing, hiking, etc. Thereís also an aqua zumba Iíve been wanting to go to but donít want to get in the pool just yet.
Reaching 500 never looked so good.
