I have OCD and I love structure. Working off lists is great. I do ST 6 days a week, 3 days upper body, 3 days lower body. It would be easy to schedule except I have to make sure that I alternate upper and lower on Tuesdays (personal training days). I made a calendar that shows what I do for ST and cardio each day and hung it on my fridge. My thing is, I am also a bit of a perfectionist and don't like the learning curve, so I tend to be hard on myself and push myself quite a bit. Having everything planned out on paper makes it easier for me to do what I'm supposed to do and not feel guilty because I didn't do more.

It never gets easier... I just get stronger!

LOL, we certainly are an experiment of one! What works for one person may not be the best thing for another. I am also someone who does much better on a structured workout plan, and love ticking each workout off my list.

Welcome!

I've been running for a few weeks now. Well, I do run/walk intervals. When I first started I kind of winged it on the intervals. And I was getting so frustrated that I didn't seem to make any progress. I decided to break down and buy a stop watch so I can time my intervals. Oh, that made a difference! Apparently, left to my own devices, I'm quite lazy. Once I started timing everything, I've done a lot better. Last week I did 60 sec run, 60 sec walk. This week I started with the 90 sec run, 60 sec walk. I did it tonight (after a brutal leg session with the trainer earlier today) and I'm so proud of myself! I can't wait until my next running day!

It never gets easier... I just get stronger!
