Whew worked out this morning. I am sore but in a good way. Feels good to workout. Don't know how many calories I burned but really I don't want to know because then I will start trying to figure out how many calories I can eat to make up those burned calories. Afterwards I made notes of my goals forward and how I think I did on the workout. I have to say after the workout my attitude was that of BRING IT ON! I am sore now but look forward to the next time.

My workout plan for the next 4 weeks:
Monday/Thursday/Saturday- Light walk for warm up then workout listed below.
Tuesdays/Friday- 30 to 45 mins Cardio (brisk walking, stationary cycling, eliptical)
Wednesday/Sunday- Rest Day (light walk 15-20 mins)

After 4 weeks I will evaluate and try new exercises.

My workout today:

Walk 12 min 34 sec (3/4 of a mile)
push ups  2 sets of 12 reps
plank 2 sets of 3 reps @ 5 s on 1st 10 secs on 2nd
Bent over row w/ L-Raise 2 sets of 12 reps
Body weight squat 2 sets of 12 reps
Curtsy Lunge 2 sets of 12 reps


  1. Those are some good exercise goals you've set for yourself. I'm just curious, where did you get your workout from? Or did you organize it yourself? It seems really well rounded which is awesome! Best Wishes xx

  2. The workout came from the Women's Health Training Guide 2012 (you can find it in the magazine section of different stores-- mine came from WalMart). They have several different workouts listed throughout the book. It also suggested 2 days of cardio so I added that. I added the walk before hand just to warm up. I decided to keep from boredom to switch up ever 4 weeks. Wednesday and Sundays are church days so I decided they would be good rest days. Good luck with your goals as well!
