First Offical Workout of 2013...

I’m officially starting my fitness plan of 2013. 

I’ve only come up with a few different exercise routines so far, but I have a few more planned to put on paper for myself.  I’ve come to realize that I need a clear precise plan in front of me before I start anything.  If I don’t do this then I seem to always get distracted and not do what I originally wanted.

So for today, this is what I did.  I literally just jogged in a circle in my basement for the “RUN” portions.  I don’t have a treadmill or an elliptical machine or I would have used that.  So, with my piece of paper, my phone with a timer on it, and my Ipad with a playlist, I was set to go… this is what I started with.



ü  2 min RUN

ü  10 to 12 PUSHUPS

ü  2 min RUN

ü  40 SQUATS

ü  1 min RUN


ü  1 min RUN

ü  10 to 12 PUSHUPS

ü  40 sec RUN

ü  20 SQUATS

ü  40 sec RUN

ü  40 sec PLANKS

This is what I looked like after that… I know scary right!!??

After that I wanted to incorporate a bit of core work with 2lbs dumbbells.  I sort of just did a couple different reps of side bends, arm holds, core twists…

I then did a cool down, and took a shower J

Let me know what some of your favorite after workout routine is?

A few bits….
·         It felt great to be moving again
·         4 years ago, I quit smoking cigarettes, my lungs still hurt from it L
·         My dog followed me thinking I was playing a game while I jogged around my basement
·         I almost threw up twice during this workout... sigh
·         Be sure to have a towel on hand to wipe sweat off your head… I forgot mine
·         An hour after this work out, I feel more energized J
