I Meant It…

…And I followed through.

Yes, it is still raining.

Yes, I did a workout.

While flipping through a Shape magazine on the weekend, a workout caught my eye. I decided to give it a go today.

I did a quick warm up and then repeated this circuit twice. I actually counted reps instead of doing timed sets – I find timing an exercise to be a pain in the butt. Other than that, I followed the routine. I find workouts from magazines can be hit or miss, but this one I liked; I may keep it to do again.

The routine is here if you are interested; I did the dumbbell version.

Then instead of doing a third repetition of the circuit, I tried a couple of other moves from the magazine.

With some stretching to finish things off, I was done in 35 minutes, which was about the amount of time I had for exercise today. I ended my session with that jelly-limbed feeling that I associate with a good strength workout, so I think it was a well spent 35 minutes.

Then I made supper which I enjoyed while watching last night’s episode of Castle, had a shower, and now I’m having dessert.

Don’t be too impressed by that healthy choice; I’ve had my fair share of chocolate today.

Off to try and get in a little piano practice before bed.

Good for you! (slinking away due to her broken promise to herself about exercising before she sat down at the computer this morning.....)

Awesome!

I get bored with most workouts by the second or third set, so I like switching it up by doing a different workout for the last part, too :)
