I'm linking up again with Desirae @ Going with the flow! Here is my Weekly Workout Log for this past week:
Sunday - 45 min. cardio (arc trainer)
Monday - 30 min. cardio (arc trainer), arms + lower body
Tuesday - Rest
Wednesday - 50 min. cardio (25 min. arc trainer, 25 min. run)
Thursday - 30 min. cardio (run) + lower body
Friday - Planning on resting today because I have work and haven't had a lot of time to spend with Matt this week. If it weren't going to be 10 degrees tonight, I'd love to get a walk in, but such is winter. Freezing and awful and punishment.
Looking back, I wish I'd done more cardio this week, but it's been hard getting myself to the gym this week. It's been ridiculously rainy and snowy all week, and all I talk about all day with Matt is how I just want it to be warm enough to ride bikes or walk around outside. In the summer, Matt and I would go on walks probably 2-3 times a week, walking anywhere from 3-5 miles each time. It was so nice to have that time without distractions and to just be able to talk and enjoy the warm nights. Gah! Only about a month left until it's warm enough to at least not get caught in a snow drift on the side of the road. Hopefully.
One thing I've been really enjoying lately though, as I mentioned a bit last week, is lifting weights!
|Me, at the gym, lookin' crazy. But lifting!|
I've always been afraid of lifting weights. I think a lot of girls are, for the same reason: we're afraid of "bulking up". But I love the effect that lifting has been giving my body. I'm definitely toning up everywhere! And I still lost a pound and a half this week, when I anticipated that I wouldn't drop weight for a couple weeks due to me gaining some muscle. I really encourage you ladies to not only do cardio, but lift weights as well! Squats on this machine and lunges with weights are my favorite. Gotta get that butt into shape.. though it may be hard to believer with all this gross weather, spring and summer aren't too far away!
