I have a plan
So I've been a little bit lackluster about the whole New Year only because I could not seem to latch onto exactly what I wanted to do. Fitness wise anyway. I know that I want to work on organization and financial health and those are actually pretty easy. But for my health goals, I was dragging my feet and could not seem to focus on what I want to work on. I don't want to get caught up in numbers and goals that are really insane. I have to remain reasonable about this.
I have been doing Bob Harper's Ultimate Cardio Workout and Karen Voight Personal Best and I love both of these but I am already getting bored with them. Also, each one takes an hour and once school starts I may not have an hour every morning. I will be taking the bus and I need to be out there early, earlier then when I drive. So that's to be considered. I will need to be amazingly organized and do things at night so I don't have to mess with them in the morning. I want to wake up, feed the birds, workout, shower and leave. That's it.
As I was looking through the ads in the Sunday paper, I came across an ad that said I could win a NordicTrack Incline - I want one so bad.... Anyway, I went to the website to register and came across a very cool BootCamp Workout. Hmm...It's just a list of exercises that I do in a certain order and a certain number. For example, one curciut has 20 squats, 20 burpees, 20 squat kicks and you do it 3 times. This is awesome for a number of reasons. First, I don't have to follow along at a prescribed pace. Sometimes that is the hardest part. Second, if I'm running late I can do 2 sets instead of 3. Then on the weekends I can do longer, harder workouts.
So I'm excited once again. We have some serious upgrading planned for the next week and I'm back to school next Monday so I'm starting this program tomorrow. It's a 4 week program with a different workout every day. I'm looking forward to it.
My goals for January are to workout 5 of 7 days each week. Track my food 4 of 7 days. Remain consistent in whatever I do since I know that consistency pays off in the end.
