I have changed my workout routine. This is my schedule:
- I'm still doing Pump on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays...followed by 15 minutes of intense cardio. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I'm doing 45 minutes on the eliptical, 15 minutes on the bike, and a 15-minute Pump ab video. On Saturdays and Sundays, I am just doing cardio and basically trying to run outside for an hour, when this crazy Arkansas weather cooperates.
- Now, I've added 20 minutes of walking during the day four days per week with a colleague - fun and easy, and a good opportunity to get out of the office since neither of us ever leaves for lunch.
- I've also added the Combat series. Yep, this one is killing me. I am not coordinated enough for these fast-paced routines, but I am determined to get there. I feel like giving up EVERY NIGHT and I have to MAKE MYSELF get off the couch and do them. They are grueling, but I was not getting the results I wanted, so I have to keep pushing myself.
