What's your workout routine/schedule?

How are you moving to lose?


Me, I go to the gym 5 days a week, like so:


-hour long bellydancing class (GREAT workout, I'm sweating and my core is sore after this class!)


-hour long Aqua Fit class.....water aerobics is a pretty intense workout! Plus there is something about exercising in water that calms me on the inside. 


Then, 3x a week I do weight training for a half hour followed by a half hour of cardio (elliptical).   One day I do upper, another day lower, and one day a little of both.  One of those weight training sessions per week I do with my trainer (we vary upper and lower every other week). 


I'm really enjoying going to the gym, and it's working, I'm down 2 sizes :D


~~~


How about you?  What are you doing?  Are you enjoying it?  Is it working well for you?

I do about 30-40 of cardio 3-4 times a week, with weight training in between.  (Either upper or lower body depending on the day)  And I try to do yoga 1-2 times a week.  It's sometimes SO hard to motivate myself to go, but it's SO worth it!  :)

I'm up to level 2 of Jillian Michael's 30 day shred.  I do this 6 days a week, I also swim once a week for an hour, have a Pilates class for an hour and sneak in a long walk whenever I can.

my routine has been a bit all over the place, but i've had a pretty good week so i'm going to try and stick with this schedule:


monday @ the gym - 30 mins of strength + abs, 40 mins cardio on elliptical


tuesday @ the park - brisk walk around the perimeter with hand weights. (did 2 laps but will try to do 2 more laps next week. that would add up to 3 miles)


wednesday - off day


thursday - 60 minute salsa class


friday @ the gym - 30 mins of strength + abs, 40 mins of cardio


saturday - not sure what we'll do yet. either go for a bike ride, walk around the park or stick to the gym


sunday - day of rest!


before the wedding, i had a similar schedule plus the 30 day shred 5 times a week. i might try to do that again.

Some of the girls on the main forum suggest the Jillian Michaels' workout dvds.  And they are achieving phenomenal results, some even lost 7 lbs in one week with one of her workouts!  I think I'm going to try those, then maybe go to the gym a couple of times a week (I hate the gym, its such a chore) and when I get really confident, I'm going to hire a personal trainer!

i got really great results from doing jillian michaels' 30 day shred. didn't lose 7lbs in a week by any means, but i was losing an average of 1/2 inch from my waist every week, got my arms nice and toned, and really improved my strength and endurance (was finally able to do "real" pushups as opposed to "girl" pushups!). i started to get a little bored of it after weeks and weeks, but the results really are worth it.... i think i just convinced myself to start doing it again!

I alternate between two weekly routines with alternating exercises to keep me from getting bored and to keep my body guessing, which helps strengthen muscles more than doing the same routine all the time.


This is my weekly routine for this week:


Sunday: 60-minute yoga session


Monday: 30 minutes circuit training (mix of cardio and strength training), 30-minute jog


Tuesday: 20-minute ab routine, 45-minute cardio DVD


Wednesday: 30 minutes circuit training, 30-minute jog 


Thursday:20-minute ab routine, 60-minute cardio yoga


Friday: 30 minutes circuit training


Saturday: 60-minute cardio DVD

I TRY to get exercising about 4-5 days a week. I usually go to a local lake that is 1.3 miles around and do 3 laps. I come home and do the Wedding Workout DVD, Abs and upper body. I am so tired by the end of the week, but it is definately paying off!

Yoga - Tuesday Nights and Thursday Mornings-  hatha both times, but the night class is much more intense for muscle strengthening.  I love core workouts that don't require movement like plank position, boat position, etc.  Thursday morning is more of a general well-being yoga class that is more about feeling what is going on in your own body.


other than that, I think the reason I can stay in shape (at least when I have a natural routine of getting out) is I walk fast.  I only notice because it's nothing for me to want to push people over if they walk in front of me because I can't stand slower walking people in front of me.  I like to get where I'm going.  Anyway, I now realize I walk incredibly fast because I pass everyone I see even if they are way ahead of me.  I'm always out of breath when I get to where I am going.  I'm assuming this is a pretty good workout and a life saver for me.  Thank you quick feet because I hate to exercise.  Now if only I can stop loving pie!

ps.  elevators make me want to puke so unless there are like 8 floors I will probably take stairs (and I run up them of course because I hate the lack of momentum of taking one step at a time)
