I sat down this afternoon and figured out a workout plan to reach my 1000 minutes while keeping my calorie goals in mind. I wrote it all (including the calories) out on a calendar, just to have a visual.
Basically it will look like this:
Sundays, two Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays I will do at least 45 minutes.
The other two Mondays and either Wednesdays or Fridays I will do at least 30 minutes. The other day will be a day off.
Next weekend I won't workout either day due to plans so I will not take a rest day until next Saturday.
I didn't include this Sunday (tomorrow) because I have plans with a friend. However if the weather stays nasty those plans might be cancelled. If so, I will do at least 30 minutes of work.
This plan only includes one weekend with plans. It is likely that there might be one more in the mix. If so I will change something during the week or figure out a way to get my minutes on over the weekend.
This includes two appointments (the two shorter workout Mondays). If other things occur I will make changes as needed. I realize life happens and being able to follow this plan perfectly may not happen. That's okay though; this gives me a good visual and a starting point for the month. I hope that it will be a good balance and will help me be stress-free when it comes to fitness minutes.
Basically I will workout six days a week for at least 30 minutes. The 30 minute days will be BR days. The 45 minute days will be running, biking, or some combo like BR then a walk or biking. It will be a good mix of cardio and ST (BR).
Following this plan I will get 1007 minutes this month. Hopefully this works as I am planning! I don't usually have trouble getting my minutes in, but it is nice to have a visual and to know what to expect!!
Don't mind my scribbles on the calendar! :)
