WWG 6.4.12

Weekly Workout Goal time!!! WWG…I like it 🙂

I didn’t do so hot on my WWG’s last week. I was SO sore from T/W/Th that I took Friday off (which is ok!), but then the weekend got busy and unfortunately T/W/Th were my only workout days. This week will be better though, that’s for sure.

Here are my goals by day. For the week, my goal is to hit 6 out of 7 of these days. I know I need a rest day, but I’m not sure which day will work out best, and I don’t want to plan one just yet.

  • Monday: Boot camp (weights + cardio day)
  • Tuesday: Boot camp (cardio day)
  • Wednesday: Gym (heavy legs)
  • Thursday: Boot camp (weights + cardio day)
  • Friday: Gym (HIIT sprints + upper body weights)
  • Saturday: Boot camp (weights + cardio)
  • Sunday: Gym (heavy legs)

If I take off a day, it will probably be Saturday. Or I may do heavy legs Saturday and take Sunday off. We shall see 🙂

What are your WWG’s this week?

Talk to you soon!

The Workout Challenge

In my quest to build up muscle and lower my overall body fat, I decided that I should brainstorm some sort of reward-based system to help me stick to my workout goals. I like rewards. I also like to have accountability with my workouts (hence group boot camp sessions), so I enlisted my husband to join me in this little endeavor. We decided that every week, we would plan what workout we would do each day (gym, boot camp, bike ride, etc), and if we were able to stick to the plan perfectly, then each of us got $10 to put in our “gift pot.” That means that by the end of each month, we could each potentially have $40 in our Gift Pots! Then, we would buy fun gifts for each other out of the money earned. So if I am super diligent and meet my goals EVERY week, then there will be $40 for Preston to use to buy me something special! It motivates us to work out, plus gives us fun money to spend on gifts for each other. Also, there’s a little competition in there to have more money in your pot than your spouse 🙂

So, I decided to share my workout plan with you guys for EXTRA accountability! Feel free to donate $10 to my Gift Pot as well, if I stick to these goals. Ha.

This week is “off week” for my boot camp, so most of my exercises will have to be at the gym or at home. Since I was out all last week with HORRIBLE allergies, I’m fairly certain that this workout schedule will kick my hiney. Good riddance, hind quarters.  I’ll be sure to keep you guys posted on my progress as the week goes on!

What are some of the ways you keep yourself motivated to workout?

Talk to you guys soon!
