What to do??

Well last night at work was interesting, you've got to love working when your pms-ing ;) Oh yeah i was definitely a little snippity! Oh well at least i didn't over eat and when i woke up this morning the scale was down.
As far as exercisng goes i'm trying to not do the same exercise every day. My plan is to walk one day, weights the next etc and on those walks vary whether they are for length, speed or form. The walking i have no problem with. The weights on the other hand are a little more out of my depth. Don't get me wrong i've done weights before but i just don't know what a good routine would be and how to make sure i'm doing different routines not the same one all the time.
If anyone has a plan i can look at or any helpful tips i would appreciate it. Today i think i'll do some tricep dips, some bicep work some squats. At least it will be better than doing nothing. I do have some weight workout books but i find the info from real people is usually better.
Have a great day!!

  1. Hey lady! What if you go to a magazine website, like Self, and peruse their past fitness routines? That way you'll have lots to choose from!

  2. If you find some really good stuff, pass it on, I'd love to read about it. Currently I'm just a walking fool and have yet to find time to hit the gym for weight training.

    Good luck!

  3. There's a great book called Eight Minutes in the Morning with some good routines in it. You can do more than 8 minutes, of course, by doubling up on the routines. It has good picture demos, IMO, and it makes sense.

    Also, sparkpeople.com has some good exercise demos with video .

    Good luck!

  4. Congrats on sticking to your walking goals. I haven't been able to in the last week due to work/stress/weather/etc. So I'm a tad bit jealous! I'm going to go today though...the dog's ticked at me for not taking her for her daily walk!

  5. I can't big up "Smart Girls Do Dumbells" enough. It's available through Amazon, and the woman who's written it is really down to earth. The exercises are extremely well presented and explained, and she's included a 30 day program of different mixes of them.
