Former & Future Workouts

Happy Friday!  Sorry for yesterday’s mushy post.  I usually shy away from those, which I guess is why I edited it a wee bit after returning from the gym.  Hmmm… I wonder which version went via email to those who subscribe…?

Anyway – today’s not mushy at all.  In fact, it’s hard. (Or at least it should be if you want to get sweaty!)


 Flashy clothes make workouts more fun!

Here were my workouts from this week.

  • Monday: short walk with Kevin, 10 min kickboxing, 10 min lower body pilates, and 30-40 min hip/knee therapy
  • Tuesday: 30 sweaty minutes on stationary bike, Little Black Dress Workout (as posted)
  • Wednesday: 3-mile run (interval), pushups (20×3), machine chest flies, resistance band chest press
  • Thursday: 3-mile run (slow), Little Black Dress Workout (machine leg extension instead of single-leg deadlifts)
  • Friday: I plan to do maybe a crossfit style workout for 20 minutes followed by core work.
  • Saturday: We’re not there yet, but I hope to run a little outside.

I’m really enjoying that LBD workout, as you can tell.  It’ll come in handy tonight at Kevin’s holiday party!  Speaking of former workouts – there’s one more worth mentioning.  I did this one last week and really enjoyed it.


1 min run on treadmill, 1 min run fast on treadmill, 1 min kb swings, 1 min jump rope, 1 min knee pushups (repeat 3-5 times)

The trick is to keep the treadmill going while you do other stuff.  You can use the clock on it as a timer for your other exercises, and you don’t waste time starting it up again.  Of course, don’t forget the warm up and cool down.

I don’t really have my future workouts totally nailed down yet, but I worked on them a little last night.  Hopefully I’ll have an entirely new routine ready by Monday.  I really feel like changing it up for the rest of the month.


  • Got any holiday plans this weekend?

  5. No holiday plans this weekend. we have our first baby class all day sat!

  6. I’m really hoping to write up and send out Christmas cards this weekend, and if I’m feeling super gung-ho then maaaaaaybe I’ll get some shopping done too. That second one might just be wishful thinking though 😉

  7. Going to check out your LBD Workout! We had plans to go out with friends on Saturday night. However, we’re supposed to get 5 to 6 inches of snow that night. Might just be hunkering down for some movies and wine instead!

  8. My holiday plan is to finish Christmas shopping! It’s stressing me out that I’m not finished yet–so that’s the goal! 🙂

    I like the treadmill game! The treadmills at my gym have no end unit. Lame right? One side goes to to a wall and the other to the rowing machines, directly behind are the ellipticals. It’s a great idea though, I bet I can figure out a way to make it work!

  10. No holiday plans but we are on our way to Orlando for a marriage retreat 🙂

  11. I need to try that LBD workout!! This weekend I got some Christmas shopping done, but that is it! I’m so behind!!
