OK, I'm changing jobs at the moment and although I wanted to start this new exercise regimen at the same time, it's proving to be a bit too overzealous lol. Will start either Tues or Wed this week.

Hey guys

OK I've just started a 9-5 (well, 8-4pm hehe) and I'd like to shift the 15kgs I've gained in the last three months. And I'd like to continue it on after that too, of course Rest of my life....

I was watching an Angelina Jolie movie last night (so total credibility already! ) and her character was mentioned that she goes to the gym to workout each morning before work and it got me thinking. I'd like to figure out a routine for my working days and my weekends.

Otherwise I just don't get how you guys make sure you exercise and get it entrenched in your lifestyle....

So I'm thinking (I'll gradually ease myself into it)

*days when there's no class for me*
6-6.30am wake up, get dressed for work, pack food
6.30-7.15am treadmill/bike/etc
7.15-8am drive to work
8-4pm work
4-4.45pm drive to gym
4.45-5.30pm cardio or weights depending on alternating day and mood
5.30-6pm go home
10.45pm bed

*days when there are classes*
6-6.30am wake up, get dressed for work, pack food
6.30-7.15am treadmill/bike/etc
7.15-8am drive to work
8-4pm work
4-4.20pm drive home
5.35-6pm drive to gym
6-7pm do class at gym
7-7.30pm go home
10.45pm bed

*sat*
rest day - go grocery shopping
spend evening doing normal Sat night stuff

*sun*
9am wake up and have brekky
10.10-10.30am drive to gym
10.30-11.30 weights class
11.30-12noon drive home
do week's worth of cooking and freezing
10pm bed

When do I have brekky on the weekdays? In the car after the gym but before work?!!

And I wonder if only 7hrs sleep a night is enough - I've never really timed it before. And that's only if I get to sleep within that 5min window. Guess I'll have to test out how well that would work....

I know, I'm pedantic. And I don't mind if I don't nail the routine perfectly but having an outline to aim for just stops me from feeling lost and not getting anything done.

It also stops me from going home, putting off going to the gym "until later" and then not going cos it's too late hehehehe.

Actually, only if you have time other wise I know this is asking a lot... but if you get a chance, could you maybe list a run down of a typical week day for you?

Like maybe wake up 6am, do 30mins walking, have breakfast, leave for work 7am, have morning tea 10am, go for 40-45min walk/job at 12 then eat lunch at desk at 12.40pm etc etc??

I'm start a Mon-Fri as of tomorrow and I've very interested to find out weekday routines. And you seem to have such a great system working for you!!

Have a great rest of weekend,

Erika, I'm so sorry, but I totally missed your post. I've been ill and haven't visited by gym log in weeks.

I'll sort out a list of what I was doing and get back to you asap if you still want it! Looks like you've got a great routine going already

Demi, don't worry at all. There was no time limit given to that post hahaha

So, my gym'ing for the week just completed:

Sunday - 1hr Body Pump
Monday - 20mins interval cardio in AM, 1hr Body Pump in PM
Tuesday - 20mins interval cardio in AM
Wed - 20mins interval cardio in AM, 1hr Body Pump in PM
Thur - 20mins interval cardio in AM
Fri - 20mins interval cardio in AM, half hour really hard body circuit with trainer (heart rate up to 180! Average of 154bpm)
Sat - absolutely nothing! My day off hehe

And though I'm not weighing myself, I can feel a difference already. Woohoo!
