Work Out Challenge: Weekly Fitness Routine

12 May

Hello There!

 

Hey everyone! So this is the second post to my work out plan – here I am going to explain my weekly routine, fitness goals, and a few recipes from Lauren’s site that I am going to be trying next week.

So let’s start with my weekly routine:

Monday – Wii Fit

Tuesday – Gym (Cardio & Weight Lifting)

Wednesday – Dance Central (X-box Connect)

Thursday – Gym (Yoga)

Friday – Zumba (X-Box)

Saturday – Gym (Cardio & Weight Lifting)

Sunday – Rest

My favorite thing about my schedule is that it’s so flexible. I work from home Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays so those days I will be working out from home but any of those days can be interchangeable for what I do!

Knowing ahead of time that I travel often on weekends, my Saturdays and Sunday’s need to be flexible as well so if I don’t make it to the gym on Saturday I can just move it to Sunday and if I can’t get there in time on Sunday I can do one of the workouts from home and make up for it the next week!

Being flexible is a huge thing in my life. My work schedule isn’t always the same, some days I work extra, some days I work less, some days get switched out completely! This routine is easy to work around as long as I am doing something each day and I have one day of rest it works!

On top of that weekly schedule I am doing a few things in the morning and at night that I can do from home. I’m starting out small and switching up what I do each morning and night and hoping to be able to do more as I go. Here’s a list of easy things to do right by your bed when you wake or when you are getting ready to go to sleep:

Crunches, push ups, lunges, jumping jacks, planking, leg lifts, and squats.

So far I’ve been trying to do 15 of three different things each time.

If you are interested in following a plan like mine but don’t have video game consoles or games please don’t worry! You can run to your closest Best Buy and grab some DVDs. There are thousands of fitness, dancing, and work out DVDs that you can use on your days at home!

Tomorrow I will be posting two recipes I’ll be attempting to have for this coming weeks meal plan as well as a list of other foods and snacks I’ll have around the house to keep me energized and healthy.

Do you have a weekly fitness routine?

What is the one thing that gets in the way of keeping up with a routine for you?

I’d love to hear what you have to say in the comments section below!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Love Always,

Itty Bitty Desk Redo <3 Part One

14 Apr

Wow what a crazy Saturday it has been for me! One of the things I have been doing in order to improve myself is working out at the gym twice a week. Now that I’ve successfully done the schedule for a little less than a month now I am starting to think about also working out on Saturday mornings – but in a different way. The gym I go to offers free classes and I’m thinking about doing a Zumba-like class. Today I stopped by the gym to check it out to see if it would be something I’d like and I also gave my Dad a tour. This gym is starting to seriously become a family affair 😉

After the gym today I headed to Home Depot with my dad to pick up a few things and start our process of purchasing the things we want to make Emma’s desk. If you are wondering what I’m talking about you can check this post – Play Space Makeover and Play Space Step One Complete! Today we bought the hinges we are looking for and checked out the options for the shelving board. I think we’ll be headed to Lowe’s to see their options and get the rest of the pieces for the desk! So we’ll be starting on that soon 😀

Then I hit the batting cages today! Brian’s work has a softball team that plays against other offices and they are always trying to find girls to play so since I’m a female and I know a little about it softball 😉 I’ve decided to get my practice on! I started slow and worked my way up with the speed and got tired of waiting for my turn so I switched over to the baseball batting cages and ROCKED it! Apparently I’m better at baseball than softball! That was quite a shocker lol!

After that workout and feeling gross I figured I might as well get down and dirty with some crafts while I was already dressed for the occasion. I got out all the supplies and set up camp in the backyard to work on this itty bitty desk I found while thrift to shopping!

Here’s the gorgeous little chair I started with!

I sanded it down real quick with just a light touch to get the shiny cover off of it so it would hold the paint.

I did one coat of white paint which was not enough! I let it dry for about 20 minutes and did another layer.

And TADA! Here is the finished second coat of white just sitting out to dry 😀

This isn’t the finished redo yet though! I have more things in mind to finish off this cute little desk. I’ll be cutting out padding and some fabric to cover the little seat and paint the top of the desk with chalkboard paint for some serious fun! After this dries overnight I’ll be working on the second part tomorrow so you’ll get to see the grande finale soon.

This isn’t the desk we were making for Emma but we’ll see when it’s finished! I was planning on selling it but if we love it we might just have to keep it! ❤ If you want to see what else we found at the thrift store the day I found the desk check out this post – The Perfect Finds!

What did you do today?

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

J
