It’s a New Dawn

November 19, 2007 at 9:00 pm 2 comments

In the words of the great Nina Simone: It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life, for me, and I’m feeeeling good. I have put the disappointments of the last week or two behind me and started a new week, a new month, and a new workout schedule. I have just finished my first sweat-inducing workout in quite a while and I feel fantastic. Very inspired to re-start afresh.

This month is an endurance month with more cardio and less intense, lower resistance, higher reps weight training. My workout plan looks like this:

Monday 30 mins pilates, 30 mins Self 05 Challenge (S05C) month 2 Cardio workout 1
Tuesday 30 mins swim, 30 mins S05C total body toning workout
Wednesday 30 mins pilates, 30 mins Tae Bo
Thursday 30 mins S05C Cardio workout 2
Friday 30 mins swim, 30 mins S05C toning workout
Saturday 60 mins pilates
Sunday 40 mins Tae Bo

I didn’t do my pilates today as it was a colleagues leaving do at lunchtime and we all went out. But I’m going to try and do a 30-minute workout at lunchtime 4 days a week. There are a couple more lunches between now and Christmas, but I’ll take them as they come.

I didn’t weigh myself this morning. I couldn’t bear to. I will try to resist until Sunday, my official weigh day, and hopefully by then I will have recouped some of my losses, or gains, even. I’ve planned my menus for the week and will be cooking, or assembling, everything fresh. Had a piece of cake today – I didn’t even enjoy it but I ate it all. I couldn’t find my food diary this morning, but I’ve got it now. I’m over for today, points-wise… off to a good start! But I will be writing everything down again from now on and hope this helps keep me on track. I’ll also try and check in with you more frequently than I’ve been managing the last couple of weeks now that the shock of being back in the workforce has more or less passed.

    The program you posted above is challenging. But you’re off to a great start. So be confident and I’m sure that you will make it to the finish line.

    P.S. Thanks for leaving your nice thank you post on the forum. I appreciated it and I’m sure the other volunteers will too.

    Happy blogging 🙂
