Making a list
Checking it twice…
Okay not that kind of list.
A weekly workout goal list.
I have seen a lot of people posting their weekly goals and thought it would do me good to do the same. I have had alot of excitement toward setting my goals but I have not been very good about being specific. I am living in a big picture world right now. Doing workouts here and there and waiting for the results. I did not realize that I was kind of bouncing around, not being consistent and well possibly with no real direction. I now see how important setting daily & weekly goals are to being successful.
6:00am Shred Level 2 (Check!)
7:30pm Zumba Class (Check!)
ZUMBA! Well awhile back I heard Kara talking about this Zumba class she took. Then I noticed that my gym was finally offering this class and I was EXCITED. It took me about 1 second to decide that I must join in the fun.
Zumba is a high intensity super fun salsa infused dance class. There are mamba’s, cha cha’s and meringue numbers. Each song has a different dance routine. They were mostly easy to follow. At times I felt like I was clubbing it up on a Saturday night! A few moves were a little embarrassing.. tee heee… And a whole lot of HIP SHAKING! Shakira is going to be my new best friend! By the end I was wiped out.

I forgot how much fun dancing is. I used to do it ALL the time. But this is a great mix of cardio and dancing!
I decided to put it into my list of workouts so that it had to be done! I know that by having my weekly goal list I will be a lot more focused and accomplish a lot more. By next week I hope to be a lot more specific in my individual goals. Such as run X miles at X speed… or something like that. I hate to be too specific, but know now that I am not being specific enough.
What works best for you? Do you like to wing it on the workouts or does a detailed plan work better? I’m trying to find tricks to be successful but not feel overwhelmed.
