Fitness Friday: Oops

I must admit, I have done zero on the fitness front this week. I've been so mentally unprepared for the transition back into school that most evenings I'm just exhausted and do little more than nap or zone out watching tv. Tsk, tsk.

My tentative weekly plan is as follows:

Monday: school/work
Tuesday: school/barn
Wednesday: school/cardio/weight circuit
Thursday: school/cardio/general exercises
Friday: school/cardio/weight circuit
Saturday: work/cardio/general exercises
Sunday: barn/cardio/weight circuit

weight circuit: A preset circuit of machines designed by the gym to be completed 3x a week. I am a beginner to weights so I plan on starting with the machines and moving up to free weights as I get more fit (and enlist in some really knowledgeable friends to show me the ropes).

general exercises: Lower intensity exercises to keep my body working, ie squats, plank.

This is extremely tentative and may be altered depending on how I'm feeling that week. I don't want to end up hurt, but I also understanding that I need to push my boundaries a bit to see results, especially as someone with a lot of hormonal imbalances that make it very difficult to lose weight.

I'm also signing up for a Biggest Loser competition at school. I weigh in on Tuesday and pay $20 to enter; the challenge is 13 weeks long and the winner gets 60% of the money. Second place gets 25% and third place gets 15%.

Hopefully I will have a better update next week!


  1. It has been found that money is a very good motivator so I hope it all works out for you :)

  2. Ooo love money competitions! Wish they would do one in our office or something.

    1. I've wanted to start one so many times but working with only about a dozen people, I was always afraid it would be taken the wrong way. So glad my school is organizing one!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from fellow equestrians.
