Strength Training: I am bringing down my pie in the sky ideas for strength training (the need for an expensive system, new and exciting equipment, or complicated diagrams), and focusing on keeping it simple, and forming a firm habit. To that end, I want something that can be done in or out of the gym, and a routine that is simple to commit to memory. Here it is:
Tricep kick back
Bent over Row
Sumo Squats (for inner thigh)
Walking Lunges (or regular lunges)
Abs: Crunch/reverse crunch/Crunch with a twist (elbow to opposite knees)/bicycles
I will do this basic routine 3X a week/minimum 2 sets.
Cardio: I will be doing a 10K on 10/5, and am targeting a 5K on 10/20, and a 5 mile in January. After the 10K which I plan to complete doing intervals of run 3 min/walk 1 min, I want to turn my training to increasing 5K speed and losing the walking intervals.
Food: I continue to struggle with over-snacking/too many calories. During October I am going to practice better meal planning so that I break the habit of “hmmm, what do I feel like eating now?” I also plan to get going on crafty endeavors to keep my hands busy.
