I like to mix it up a bit so I have something different to look forward to. I'm also a bit of a class geek and I like to try new ones, but this is the schedule I've been maintaining the past few weeks:
Monday: treadmill or outside Tuesday: DVD or gym, depending on time Wednesday: Zumba class Thursday: treadmill or outside walk Friday: Zumba class Saturday: kickboxing class Sunday: yoga
I also do the bootcamp videos everyday for strength training - I'll have to increase that as I go, but it's a start. I like to add yoga in where I can, as well.
Sunday: Lite Workout Monday: Strength training & Cardio Tuesday: Cardio Wednesday: Off Thursday: Strength Training & Cardio Friday: Cardio Saturday: Strength Training & Cardio
If I schedule my workouts, then I know I have an obligation to meet! Also, I vary cardio workouts in order to trick my body as well as changing my strength training every month! This helps to break a plateau!
Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
No one can do what you are called to do, but you!
Great works are performed not by strength but by perserverance. - Samuel Johnson
Ok so I'm a bit skeptical that you'll get to 1.5 pounds a week without putting in more workout time and less calories. Run the numbers in the nutrition and fitness calculators and see if you get the 5250 calories you need. Try it and make adjustments as you go. Each week you'll learn something new that will help you. Keep us posted.
I JOINED BALLY'S SO I GOT A GENERAL IDEA OF THE EXERCISE PLAN FROM THE TRAINER. HOWEVER, SP HAS GREAT RESOURCES TO HELP YOU PUT TOGETHER A PLAN.
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore, honor God with your body. 1 Cor. 6: 19-20
So I'm working on getting together a great work-out plan. I'd like to loose 1 to 2 lbs a week and I understand the math to it....so I'm thinking about this as my workout:
Monday/Tuesday OFF (grad school eliminates these days) Wednesday Swimming for 1 hour Tuesday Elliptical/Treadmill 45 min with strength training Friday 40 minute walk - tread or outside with strength training Saturday Swimming for 1 hour
