After listening to the comments on my last post, you ladies are right! It is not worth the stress of trying to make up every single workout. I do need to do better about following or adjusting the schedule though to make sure I’m not slacking off. Here is my success calendar so far, with missed workouts omitted.
I calculated the workout (WO) percentage out of 7 workouts per week even though the Stretch DVD is considered optional.
In the last week, I’ve only done 2 workouts (Friday to Thursday). That is where I get worried. I just need to do better on the weekends and busy days from here on out! If I miss too many during the week, I will try to make one or two up on the weekend. Sunday will continue to always be a rest/stretch/yoga day though so I always have one easy day per week for recovery.
For example, this week, I missed Total Body on Monday and today was supposed to be Cardio (but I did yesterday’s Lower Focus). Tomorrow, I will only have time for 1 morning workout most likely, so I’ll need to exercise on Saturday. The plan will be to do Cardio tomorrow and Total Body + Ab Intervals on Saturday. Really, I just “shifted” my workouts over 1 day. Sunday will be a long day of travel so doing the Stretch DVD will be great!
Having this plan makes me feel a lot better. It is about living your life and making this all part of a lifestyle, not just about the program. Adjusting the program to work better around my schedule is what it is about!
