Weekly Workouts 2

This week has absolutely flown by! I can’t believe that it’s already Sunday afternoon. I’m really grateful that I was able to pick up some extra hours oat work this week (I’m trying to save as much as I can since I start school in September), but that hasn’t left much time for blogging or working out.

Sunday, February 15 I started off the week with a rest day. My arms were pretty sore from my workouts over the previous few days, so I decided to listen to my body and take it easy.

Monday, February 16 I decided to do workout #5 from Jillian Michaels Body Revolution (affiliate link). It was the last workout from the DVD, so expect a review of it in the next few weeks. It was 25 minutes of cardio, which was actually pretty fun. I think I’ll end up using this workout in the future when I want to add on to a strength training workout, so I can get the best of both worlds.

Tuesday, February 17 Since I had to be at work really early I took another rest day. There’s no way I’m getting up before 3:45 am to get in a workout before work.

Wednesday, February 18 I went for a walk in a nearby park after work. It was sunny, but the wind was pretty gusty so I cut it short and only stayed out for 30 minutes. There’s always lots of people in this park as the paved paths always get cleared of snow pretty quickly when it snows. Being able to walk in snow free paths is such a treat.

Thursday, February 19 I planned to take Thursday as a rest day, so that’s exactly what I did. It was a gorgeous day out, so I was tempted to go for another walk, but by the time I finished my homework after work the sun was already going down.

Friday, February 20 I’d set my alarm and was planning to get in a workout before work, but I couldn’t convince my sleepy self to get up. I kept pressing snooze and by the time I finally talked myself into it, I didn’t have enough time left.

Leave me a comment with your secret to getting up early for a workout when you really don’t feel like it.

    I am the worst person when it comes to getting up early when I don’t feel like it- I only ever do this when I absolutly cannot fit it in later… And I usually put the phone way across the room for me so I have to get up. Ahh I feel grumpy just thinking about it haha

      That’s a good idea about moving my alarm clock. I find the hardest part for me is getting out of my warm bed.

    When you figure out the secret, let me know. I am not a morning person and struggle with getting up to get a workout in before work.

      I’m a morning person, but with working more hours, I’m just not feeling the morning workouts.

    I don’t really have a secret. I’ve always just gotten up as soon as my alarm goes off. Morning person I guess!

      Haha, maybe I just need to suck it up and get up when my alarm goes off!

    I think some people are just morning people. I get up with the alarm too.. but I am useless after 7pm. I can’t think straight!

      I’m right there with you. I have to get my homework done before dinner or else I can’t think through complicated things.

    I like to sleep in my workout clothes the night before I wake up early. That way I just wake up, throw my hair in a ponytail, and run out the door. It seems when I plan out the morning its easier for me to wake up, that way it’s less I have to go when I wake up!

      Sleeping in my workout clothes sounds like a great idea. I might have to try that this week.
