Weekly routine…well at least it is getting to be a routine

Filed under: Health Highlights — by gresmer @ 4:28 pm

Given that I have re-energized my interest in my health and that I am talking about it here, I figured I would share my new weekly routine.  Perhaps by writing it done, I will be more likely to keep following it.

Monday – Cardio (ie. a date with Tready that lasts 50 minutes)

Tuesday – Weight Training (I do arms, legs and abs every other day.  I am going for tone not bulk so my weight is lower and I have higher reps.  I’m at 8lbs for arms and 50 for legs – 2 sets of 15 for each muscle group.)

Wednesday – Cardio (me and Tready again)

Thursday – Weight Training

Friday – Cardio (yup, me and Tready – aka: my other steady boyfriend)

Saturday – Weight Training

Sunday – rest!

In two weeks I have increased the intensity of my cardio days and have been able to go from 5lbs to 8lbs in my arm workout and have added the legs.  Not bad for the first two weeks.  My body has also adjusted to the early mornings and getting up at 5:50AM doesn’t seem to be that hard anymore.  (well at least not until Friday – that last day still feels REALLY early!)  My muscles do still hurt something fierce but at least it is for a good cause and I know the pain will eventually go away.


  1. That’s awesome! I wish I had that kind of dedication. I’m trying hard to not eat everything I’m baking these days… 😛 It’s REALLY hard to get motivated to go outside and run when it’s -25 with the wind. Eek!

  2. yeah! good work Gwen! One day at a time is all you need to succeed! I will get back on it myself…I’ve been asked to run a 10K in the summer so I need to get back to my old level of running health…that might also sort out my most recent back issues too!

    …as for Wendy, I don’t blame you for not wanting to run when it’s -25!!! That is just damn wrong! Maybe waiting until it’s warmer or going to the gym might be a bit easier…

    Good luck!
