Kickstart some Fitness

Gosh what a busy week! I have officially kick started my fitness and have gotten myself to the gym/yoga class for three days in a row, today makes four! BOO-YA! I feel good, can’t complain too much (I guess). I want to push myself and get back to being in shape and feeling good about how I look which will entail some tightening and toning – never been one to care about what the scale read.

Monday(is it sad I don’t even remember what I did on Monday! Am I getting THAT old already? Gosh). Monday I started in high gear = This is what we call Beast Mode (or maybe that’s just me!).

WorkoutThere is my quick rundown of kind of a typical gym routine. I do a quick cardio and head right into strength training – unless it’s a cardio day in which case I will spend more time getting sweaty!

Tuesday – I worked out with a friend on Tuesday and it was chest and back day. I can list my workouts if anyone wants them, but for now I’ll just add some here and there. We did mostly free weight training. Dumb bell bench press, incline bench press, front raises, side raises, pushups 3 ways and finished with some tricep work (my favorite)!

Wednesday – Totally changing it up for the next few months, my friend and I signed up for “Hip Hip Hooray” Yoga classes. A friend of mine saw a class being offered to help with hip strength and flexibility, and with my recent surgeries she thought it might be something I would be interested in! We had our first class last night and I am already enjoying it! I am definitely sore today, moving and holding poses I normally would never have done before. I am looking forward to the 8 week result and having more rotation in my hip sockets!

Thursday – I like to plan my workout ahead of time so when I get to the gym I’m not standing around like a weirdo! However, I am going in about 30 minutes and I have no clue what I want to do! 🙁  I think I will do some HIIT exercises, or something not using a machine. This will include: deadlifts, kickbacks, donkey kicks, extended donkey kicks, squats and lunges to name a few. I’m going to be feel good tomorrow!

Friday – I plan on going to the gym Friday, but ya never know how things will change! I would be doing cardio and arms on Friday as I haven’t done those yet this week. I alternate between two gyms and I like each one for different reasons!

Saturday – 6 days in a ROW! YIPPIE! Saturday I am going to the gym with another friend of mine! I do enjoy working out with someone, usually someone with similar goals as you can really push yourself! The other great thing with a workout buddy is getting to swap exercises, moves, ideas; I really do enjoy this. Some people can’t workout with someone – personally, I enjoy it most of the time.

Sunday – This girl needs a REST!

Next week will be filled with more excitement as well as a trip to NYC for the weekend with my Momma!! I cannot WAIT! 🙂

Hope you enjoyed my quick synopses of a workout week, if you have questions or want more just let me know.

You CAN do it! It’s hard work. It’s drive. With determination you can do anything.
