Now that my Spring swim class will end, I need to figure out a new workout schedule. Since my husband is waking up early, I will become a morning person too.
I will wake up by 6am each week day and pack Mís breakfast. Then Iíll get myself together and have a snack to workout as follows:
Cardio MWF 6:30am + Sat or Sun (Swim, Walk/Jog, or Intervals)
Strength training: Tu & Th 6:30am (Home or Gym workouts OK)
This morning thing will not be easy, but Iíll do it anyway. My rewards will be $1 per workout, BUT for the first month my reward/penalty will be based on sleeping and waking.
I will need to sleep at 10am and wake at 6am M-F. My reward will by $0.50 each time I sleep/wake according to plan. Then, in July and August, Iíll work on the workout rewards.
I also want to watch less TV, but maybe this sleeping and waking thing will take care of the too much TV. I have a whole list of stuff I would rather (in theory) do than watch TV. I just have to keep reminding myself of them.
I also have a plan for Fall based on my class schedules. Itís the same as above with these modifications:
Tu/Th Kickboxing 7:30am
Saturday: Swim 10am
But, Iím getting ahead of myself. I need to come with as good a plan for when things get out of sync, like holidays and vacations and when I feel less than enthusiastic. Oh, well, more for the summer. Now, just sleeping and waking.
