My Workout Schedule

I've been debating over my workout schedule. I know it'll change when my oldest son goes back to school. I want to experiment and see how this schedule will work for me (for now). It'll be tricky and naturally I want to start on a Monday. LOL. I'm a Monday starter! What can I say? I know. I'm weird.

We have tennis offered where I live for free! I would LOVE to try tennis! The catch: I would have to find a baby sitter to watch my little guy and I would have to go to tennis practice right before work. It just doesn't seem so tempting when I have to put in so much effort to workout. Childcare costs money and I work nights! I don't feel like exercising right before work when I know I'll be up all night. It's hard enough staying awake! How bad do I want it? Hmmm...maybe I should be worried about the rest of my schedule before I start worrying about tennis. Right? Right. I'll have to get back to you on this topic later...
If I sound I'm not making any sense. I'm sleep deprived. Look at how scary I look right now. Yikes!

So here's what my schedule looks like so far:

Monday: Spinning/Gym (Workout Unknown @ This Time)

Tuesday: Walking To The Lake Beach and Back (I won't be able to jog or run because I'll have my kids, but I figure walking is better than nothing. This will be part of my exercise routine and my kids (especially my oldest) will benefit from this too!)

Wednesday: Spinning (I work @ nights. On these days I don't feel much like walking. I'm actually pretty lazy on days like these.)

Thursday: Walking To the Lake and Back.

Friday: Walking To The Lake and Back/ Walking Around the Lake/ Spinning (These days will depend on childcare, if my husband's not working, or if I'm just too tired from work.)

Saturday: Walking to the Beach and Back/ Walking around the Lake/ Spinning.

Sunday: Walking Around the Lake.

I'm not sure which day I'll use as a free day yet. I might just try the schedule out and see how this works first.

I know that I definitely need new running shoes. I got a big fat blister the last time I went running. It was painful! I eventually want to start running. I probably won't start until September. I can work on getting a jogging stroller in the meantime. Once Jeremy starts school I'll start running like Forest Gump! LOL!

Better Go!! I'm at work!! Have a great weekend!! Diet Update Coming Soon!

  1. Hey Elizabeth, I was wondering - where do you live? I'm on the corner of Greenbriar and Jasmine Lane and I walk to the North Lake once or twice a week. I'd love to join you on one of your walks if we live anywhere close to each other. Drop me an email with your address, maybe?

    P.S. I'd love to do tennis, too, but er...did you mention childcare? Yeah.
