Gonna Hurt Tomorrow + Planning For The Week

After three days of not working out, actually getting myself to work out was kind of hard. I had to promise myself to keep it short and sweet. And I’m pretty sure I’m going to be in some pain tomorrow anyway. I ended up doing a completely random workout. I basically just picked my favorites: RDLs, bicep curls, and shoulder presses. It worked out that all I needed was a bar and some weights, because I just drug them into the bedroom so I could work out while watching Grumpy Old Men.


We grabbed that DVD the other day at Walmart, and it’s legitimately the best five bucks we’ve spent in a while. Frugal entertainment at its best.

Anyway, this weekend is apparently going to be one long sweat-fest. The trip is going to include several workouts with the goal of capturing action shots of me cramping up and crying us looking strong and fierce. My plan is to not lift weights again until then. I don’t want to be sore, weak, and whiny when I finally have the opportunity for exciting workouts, you know? I might run once or twice before I fly out on Thursday, but that’s more or less just to calm my nerves about the whole flying thing. It’s either that or chug vodka at 8 am before my flight. I think I’m making the right call. Another great plan of mine, am I right?

While we’re sort of on the topic of planning, can I just mention that I’m proud of myself for getting our lunches packed early tonight? It’s the little things, people.

hummus wraps

I made us hummus wraps. I took this  before I slathered them in buffalo sauce. Let’s just say I hope Ryne eats in his office tomorrow, because buffalo face is not an attractive look.

Question 1: Do you plan your workouts or do you complete them on the fly? I like to pretend that I plan them out. In reality, probably only 5% of them have any rhyme or reason. I really need to work on that.

Question 2: Do you put buffalo sauce on everything? If you answer is anything but yes, we really need to talk about your priorities in life. Buffalo is everything.

  2. Whenever I take a day off it always turns into multiple days off and its hard to break the cycle–so I do the same thing-convince myself to do something shorter just to do…something.

    • Yeah, it can definitely get out of control quickly. A little is better than nothing at all… well unless you NEED rest. Working out is so daggum complicated. ;)

  3. I do plan my workouts…kind of. Right now I’m training for a half marathon (that I haven’t actually pulled the trigger and signed up for…) using a Hal Higdon plan, so I run the specified distances but am a little more spontaneous with the cross- and strength-training days. I just do whatever I feel like that day, whether it’s a cardio gym machine or weights, Pilates-based strength training, or a video like Ripped in 30 or 30 Day Shred. I’m actually in a pretty good fitness groove right now and think the mix of structure and flexibility works really well for me!

  4. Holy crap that movie combo WINS. Amazing!

  6. I kind of sort of plan my workouts. I do my crossfit every morning and then pick 4-5 days a week to lift in afternoon. But somedays I just want to relax after work so I do just that :)

    I’m a sriracha girl. On virtually every savory food…

    • Sriracha is so good, too. I don’t know that I could actually choose between those two things, haha.

      I love relaxing…

  7. I’ve been having fun with the totally unplanned workout thing lately. Instead of counting seconds or reps, I go until my muscles are totally shot and then try to do a few more. Weird how well that works! ha

    Can’t wait to hear about your trip!

  8. Ever since becoming a mom, I became worse and worse at planned workouts… so I adapted to the “on the fly” strategy. Though I rarely use buffalo sauce, I made buffalo chicken wraps for dinner last night. Have fun on your trip!

  9. I am awful at workouts on the fly. I need to know what I am doing before I get started or there is a very big chance I will just quit after 2 minutes to sit on the floor and browse instagram.
