Stepping Up the Exercise

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I can't believe October is almost over. How did it go so fast?

Here in the south, the weather is just now getting lovely. DH and I have been enjoying weekend walks on the beaches without fear of blistering sunburns.

For my October goals, I've done pretty well on my diet. After eating a bunch of birthday cakes in September, I went through a few weeks of reboot.

Exercise, though, I'd only rate myself as fair. While DH and have been getting our weekend exercise, I need a stronger effort on the weekdays. I retooled my plan starting yesterday. My schedule is going to look something like this:

Monday: 30 mins HIIT elliptical (done!)
Tuesday: 30 Day Shred DVD (done!)
Wednesday: 60 mins indoor cycling
Thursday: 30 Day Shred DVD
Friday: 30 mins HIIT elliptical
Saturday: 2+ hour beach cycling
Sunday: Easy walk around park or beach

I'm mixing it up. I'll be doing my best to carry this routine into November, hopefully heading off any weight gain going into the holidays!

    I'm the opposite way round. I've been good with my exercise but slipping on my diet. I think it's because of the weather this month. This has been one of our wettest ever Octobers, and when it's cold and grey outside you just want to sit and eat.
