bicycling is me

Another successful bike ride!  I got in about 11 miles yesterday.  Before you know it, I’ll be doing 20!  Yay me. 🙂


reshaping my body

August 24, 2009

Now that I seem to have some direction related to my eating, I want to ramp up my workouts.

My goal for next month is to build into my schedule a series of workouts that target my focus areas and help me with weight loss and toning.

I already workout regularly with C. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We usually walk 3 miles each day, with a little cycling and weights at the gym sprinkled in.

I think we have a solid habit and routine, but it isn’t as intense as I’d like and I don’t think it’s enough to get the results I want.

I will stick with the 3 day workouts with C., but I’m going to add in a few additional days as well. My goal is to get in 5-6 days a week. That’s tough with my schedule, but I’m aiming high. Based on my current schedule, I should be able to get in extra workouts every other Monday, Saturdays and Sundays

My gym has several good options for Saturdays and Sundays. I am going to check out the Spinning, Yoga, and Boot Camp options.
