Harder, better, faster, stronger...

Happy weekend peeps!! I got in an early work-out this morning, so what better time to post about my workout regimen?!

Over the past month or so, I've been sticking to my plan of working out 5-6 times a week. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I post pics here and there while I'm gettin it in. lol! Shout out to my workplace! They are great because employees are offered an on campus gym membership at a sweet price. I was just too lazy to join before.

Monday - Wednesday its 30 - 45 minutes on the elliptical or stationary bike. Thursday is boot-camp class (on the days that I can make it in time). If I know I can't make it, I will just do the elliptical (last week, I did BOTH). Friday is usually a rest day, and Saturday is strength training with a personal trainer. Last week, I worked out on Sunday as well. I took it easy by walking to a nearby lake, around the lake then walked back home. That took me around an hour or so. If it's not too hot out, I plan to do the same thing tomorrow.

I just want to make exercising a lifestyle for me from now on. My plan is to start strong, and taper off a bit as I start to see progress. Eventually, I want to start running with my husband. I have to work my way up to that though. I am soooooo not a runner. I just look & feel awkward. Ha!!

So, here's a few pics of me and the ladies that help keep me motivated at our Saturday session from last week.

Until next time…

  1. GREAT JOB MS. TICKA!! Keep on working hard Lady and you can truly see that the Working out is WORKING OUT:-) - JT


  2. I must admit I envy your fervence. It was something I once had and it got lost by the wayside. I miss it though. I am proud of you!

    1. Thank you Tammie! I've never had this much "get up & go" in me before. As I get older, I'm trying to be better, you know?

  3. I admire your dedication. I usually work out 5 days a week most of the time. I have been doing this for years, but sometimes I feel very unmotivated. It is awesome that you have access to a gym at work. Working out does make you look and feel better:-)

  4. I live that you have a support system! So key!
