Whenever the weather allows (which usually means anytime the temperature is between 15 and 90 degrees) and there’s not a lot of snow/ice on the ground, I run outdoors.  But in the worst of winter and summer, I go to the gym and do various cardio machines and weight training.  I’ve never been a yoga person; it just doesn’t feel like a workout to me.

At least 2 cardio sessions a week.  If I can make step class or Group Power, I do those too.  Ok, well, I skip the elliptical if I make step class.  I want to work up to 2 Group Powers a week, but my schedule sucks right now.

At minimum I do 30 minutes cardio and then at least three weight training routine per session. Sometimes I do up to 45 min cardio and five routines when I feel motivated.

Cardio 4 days a week, pilates or yoga one day a week. Strength training arms with squats 4 days a week. No fun!! But I do love the pilates and yoga!

I run outdoors 3-4 times a week (lucky enough to live in Florida and able to exercise outside this time of year – I’ve never been a gym person).  I started running over a year ago, first with the Couch to 5K program and then I did a training program for a 10K.  I know I need to do more strength training, so lately I’ve been doing arm exercises with an 8-lb weight, squats, and crunches, also about 3 times a week.  I used to do yoga but haven’t gone in awhile…

Combination of WiiFit, snowboarding and 30 day shred at the moment. I am also hoping to get up the willpower to do the 100 pushup and 200 situp challenges, but I’m very sore at the moment from other activities. I know I need to do more cardio, but it’s really difficult with my knee problems. 1 step at a time I guess!

Monday – 30mins cardio in the am, 60min hot yoga class at night -FYI – Hot Yoga is in a studio where it’s 90 degrees – it is an amazing class, it’s tranformed my body and I don’t even do weights anymore.

Tues – 60min Turbokick (choreographed kickboxing class that’s fun and a great calorie burner)

Wed – same as Monday (or sleep in and just do hot yoga)

Thurs – same as Tues

Fri – same as Mon & Wed

Sat – go on a light run/walk

Sun – rest or do a light walk

During the day: 45 min on the elliptical, 3-4x/week

In the evening, at home: Pilates and strength training, 20 min 3-4x/week

Weekends are for tennis or hiking, nothing super strenuous.

Interspersed irregularly, I do classes at the gym (kickboxing, spinning, core, dance) or at home, Wii fit and various yoga/ballet DVDs.

Pole dancing at Sheila Kelley’s S Factor! It is the best workout ever. It’s a challenge every week but so much fun you don’t even notice how hard you’re working out. Plus it has led to me making some wonderful friendships and changing how I feel about my body. It’s my favorite 2 hours of the week and has completely changed my life. I’m stronger than my husband now!
