Workout Wednesday Maintained

My goal is to do a lot of exercise, less eating and get back to liking my body this summer!


I did finally get my butt out of bed and went for a run. It’s tough when I’m not meeting anyone. I went out the opposite way as I usually do along the busy street, but I had discovered the auto pause feature in RunKeeper and needed to check it out. It worked great and I got 6.5km done. I was happy with this as I was of course, worried I’d be unable to run more than 3.5km as that’s all I have time for in the morning.

This afternoon I went for a walk. I was once again not feeling super energetic, even though I had just woken up from a nap. I was happy to get another 3.5km done:)

Finally I did a workout this evening. I went back to the first workout I had been given and boy did it have me sweating buckets!

Warm up: 30 seconds run in place, alternating with: jacks, cross jacks, side shuffle, high knees and butt kicks.


Skaters/ mountain climbers

Squat jumps/ squat with alternating side leg lift

Mogul jumps/ dips

Burpees/ up-Downs

Core: front plank, right plank, table top plank, left plank, crunches

I haven’t decided if I’m going to repeat this workout or move onto the next workout.


I met up with my friend Brenda and introduced her to Bulk Barn as she had never been. I picked up some baking stuff, but shouldn’t have gotten the banana chips as I’ve already eaten more than I had planned.


Breakfast- yogurt

Snack- 20 grapes

Lunch- Freshii Kung Fu bowl

Snack- 30 banana chips

Dinner- shrimp plate


I have been knitting like crazy today and am almost at the neck decrease! I just hope it all matches up and fits when I’m done!

I always know when I’m getting close as I’m already thinking about what I’ll make next. My RMT’s wife is pregnant so I’m thinking I’ll do a quick sweater for him.


I have been binging on Hallmark movies as I’ve been knitting. I’ve watched When Sparks Fly, Summer Villa and now on Chance at Love. I’ve seen them all before, but they work for background noise as I’m knitting.

Well that’s it for me.

Have fun!
