Default December Exercise Accountability

It's the holiday month! Lets all bring in our A game and aim to workout each week, and push ourselves a little out of our comfort zone - to make up for and plan for the little indulgence over the holiday season

Bring It
for December!




In addition to declaring your daily exercise achievments, there will be a smilie competion each week, which you're more than welcome to join in!

Allocate a holiday smilie of your choice for each workout you complete. At the end of the week, count up your smilies and see how you fair against the competition!


Feel free to copy the format below and then each day you can edit your own post and add your workout(s!) for each day and week. Remember this is completely optional, and you don't have to do this if you dont want to.

I will keep up my daily workouts throughout December, in spite of after-hour holiday parties and some of my exercise classes going on hiatus for a few weeks. When others are lamenting overindulging and swearing they must start a program, I'll just be doing what I always do, whatever the season, because exercising is a non-negotiable part of my daily routine, like washing my face or brushing my teeth. (I hope that if I keep telling myself that, it will be true. ;-)


Week 1

1st tues: 45 minutes bike, 15 minutes rowing
2nd weds: One hour elliptical, weights
3rd thurs: One hour elliptical, one hour Pilates class
4th fri: One hour elliptical, weights
5th sat: One hour elliptical, one hour Pilates class
6th sun: One hour swimming class, weights. This was not my finest hour in swim class. I'm somewhere beyond the intermediate class but I am the laggard in the advanced class. I really need to work on my breast stroke & butterfly.

Total Smilies = How do I earn a smilie? Is it like a teacher giving a sticker to a student's paper?
Total minutes = Probably just under nine hours. (I don't time my work with weights -- I just do the sets.) So maybe 535 minutes for the week.
------

Week 2

7th mon: One hour bike, abs work
8th tues: One hour elliptical, weights
9th weds: One hour bike, abs work
10th thurs: One hour bike, weights
11th fri: One hour elliptical, abs work
12th sat: 30 minutes elliptical, 30 minutes on treadmill, one hour Pilates class
13th sun: One hour swimming class, weights

Total Smilies = I'm giving up on the smiley thing.
Total minutes = Probably about eight and a half hours. I could have done more, had I also taken a yoga class & a second Pilates class during the week, but I need that downtime after work. That's 510 minutes for the week.

--------

week 3

14th mon: One hour bike, abs work. Boy did this feel good after a hectic day.
15th tues: One hour elliptical, weights
16th weds: One hour bike, abs work. Barely made it through this, as I picked up a cold over the past few days & feel out of it.
17th thurs: 45 minutes elliptical, 45 minutes Pilates class
18th fri: One hour elliptical, weights
19th sat: 30 minutes elliptical, 30 minutes treadmill, one hour Pilates class
20th sun: One hour on the arc trainer, weights. After eight & a half inches of snow fell, my Sunday morning swimming class at the local community college was cancelled. But the gym down the street still opened this morning & lots of people were in there at 10 AM. There are so many big co-op apartment buildings around here that people just have to walk a block or two or three, at most.

Total minutes = 6 hours & 45 minutes of cardio, one hour & 15 minutes' worth of Pilates classes, probably two & half hours of mat work & weights, for a total of about 10 and a half hours. A new high for the month: 630 minutes.

----------

week 4

21st mon: One hour bike, abs work
22nd tues: One hour elliptical, weights
23rd weds: One hour elliptical, abs work
24th thurs, Christmas Eve: One hour bike, weights
Christmas, fri: One hour arc trainer, abs work
26th sat: One hour elliptical, one hour Pilates class
27th sun: One hour bike, weights

Total minutes = 10 hours, or 600 minutes. Which won't make up for my nibbling at nuts & eating prime rib on Christmas Day, but has kept me in a good, consistent habit, which will help when I eat more regular, day-to-day meals.
---------

week 5

28th mon: One hour elliptical, one hour Pilates class
29th tues: One hour arc trainer, weights
30th weds: One hour bike, abs work. Today I secretly went down to the spinning classroom when no one was there & got on a spin bike, to see how it felt. I am preparing myself mentally to try a spinning class. I do a lot of solitary hours on a stationery bike, but have never tried a spinning class. I am a bit of lone wolf as far as exercising goes & I am shy of crowds (due to deep-rooted gym class traumas from my youth ;-) so this will be a big thing for me.
31st thurs: One hour elliptical, weights. Snow began falling rather prettily while I was on the machine, then got thicker & faster. I walked home through a snowstorm. Goodbye to 2009. Good wishes for 2010.

Total minutes = Five hours & 45 minutes. 345 minutes for the week. Done & done. 2,620 minutes for the month.
