So once again, I have set up a work-out calendar with the best of intentions, and once again, those intentions are going buh-bye. I have missed 2 cardio sessions and I have only done 1 strength training day. I know I need to do ST, but getting in the mindset for it… I won’t beat myself up. No negative self talk allowed. I am beginning to think I was a little too ambitious when I set up the ST part of my calendar. Four days a week may be more than I can mentally deal with right now. I have a work out DVD by Gold’s that uses resistance tubes with short cardio bursts. It is a full body work out and takes about 40 minutes to complete. I am going to try and use that instead of my original plan to do sets of spot exercises. I am going to focus on 2 days a week. If I can do more great, but 2 days will have me doing at least 1 type of exercise 6 days a week with 1 rest day.
This will also make it easier to not make excuses in the upcoming week. I am halfway through my 4th day of work and I have seven more to go. I normally work 30 hours a week Friday thru Sunday, but I picked up hours to cover for the regular Week day secretary while she is on vacation. I will have 1 paycheck with an extra 10 hours and another paycheck with the extra 10 plus 30 hours of OT. Trying to get in a total of 2 hours of exercise after work plus having to work the next day is not feasible.
That’s about it for me, I hope everyone is have a good week.
