This Week, Worked Out

by snackface on July 7, 2011 · 31 comments

Dudes and dudettes. I have no idea what’s gotten into me, but I’ve been more active than ever lately.

Here’s a little breakdown (I just wrote breakfast) of what this week, worked out, has been like!

Sunday, July 3: Approximately 5 mile walk/run followed by casual swimming.

Monday, July 4: Approximately 5 mile walk/run followed by casual swimming.

Tuesday, July 5: 4.2 miles of intervals on the elliptical. Two minutes at incline 4, resistance 4. Two minutes at incline 10, resistance 10. Repeated while reading a magazine and listening to Waka Flocka.

Wednesday, July 6:

  • 25 modified push-ups
  • 25 dips
  • 25 sit-ups
  • 25 reverse fly with 5 lb. weights
  • 25 squats (hold yoga block between legs for added challenge)

Complete series four times. (Routine given to me by MJ, our personal trainer at work!)

Thursday, July 7: 136 miles of driving, sitting on my bootay, singing my heart out. One of the best workouts, really.

Friday, Saturday, Sunday (July 8, 9, 10): Hoping to get in at least one walk/run while away on a trip!


My relationship with exercise is ever-evolving. Some weeks I think it’s unnecessary. Others, I can’t get enough. Most often, two or three days of exercise is plenty. What’s key is accepting whatever mood you’re in. Truly accepting it. Guilt and exercise should never be associated, especially when one believes she hasn’t done “enough” of it when maybe she has. Something is better than nothing, and sometimes, nothing is better than anything.

Ciao for now,



  • What’s your relationship with exercise like? Non-existent? Ever-evolving? Love it? Hate it? Overboard?
  • What would you like your relationship with exercise to be?
