I've been just using my treadmill so far, concentrating on making exercise into a habit again. I just do a walk/jog combo but am working my way up to "real" running. (I used to be a runner and, believe me, what I do now is more jog than run. LOL) Now that I've gotten into the habit, I'm need to start adding in other things, especially strength training.
I've got a BowFlex Extreme2, stability ball, jump rope, treadmill, hula hoop, resistance bands and ribbons, homemade ab roller thingymajigger, mini-trampoline, and a bunch of pilates, yoga, and steel DVDs.
Now, being an anal, but lazy, perfectionist, I've been obsessing over what to do which days, weights/reps/sets, muscles groups, and on and on and on for a week now just trying to get some balance to a weekly workout. I had wanted to have it all figured out by tonight so that I could start in on my new miracle-inducing workout tomorrow (Monday). Ha!
I know the basics of building a workout routine but it's just completely overwhelming me trying to come up with a sensible (not going overboard and feeling like I have to do everything) routine.
Can someone just smack me upside the head with a 2 x 4 of common sense with maybe an extra dose of "just shut up and get 'er done, dummy"?
