Workout in workwear

This just happened

Or something like it

Yep. For real.

I worked late & skipped the gym. I told myself that I could go through blogs & emails if I read standing while doing some arm moves. Well that routine happened to be sitting on my dresser

{I tend to be slightly addicted to collecting fitness plans ….and then ignoring them}

Not this time, I knocked out the whole routine. Read some articles, felt a burn, got my heart rate up…and all in a dress.

What, I hear hygiene is overrated in the fitness world. And it’s not like I didn’t sweat on my commute this morning. To make up for it, I’m going to go hop in the shower, but I’m not washing my hair …I hear that’s overrated too.

Have you worked out in “normal” clothes? Do you have cute gym clothes or do you go for the oversized t-shirt you still have from college?  

Gyming Jamming

The gym was packed last night. I usually don’t get there until at least 7:30 but a PT session had me walking in an hour earlier. Whoa….so there’s one advantage to always working so late. The locker room was a crowded steamy mess. Even all the tables in PT were taken. When I walked back out on the floor the machines & weights were still bumping. Lots of people. I hopped on the Elliptical for some light cardio, testing out my knees. When time was up, I took one look at the crowded mats and headed home.

I do this often. I rock out on the cardio and then flat line once stretching is over. I’m terrible at strength training. I don’t follow plans and I lose all direction. I tell myself that I’ll go home and “finish” in my apartment – putting those weights to use and following magazine guides. Only I never do.

I come home. I sit down.  I’m done.

I can’t wait to start classes again, someone to push me.

{for the record – that’s what every wall squat feels like to me. so not a fan}

Do you follow a strength training plan? Do you ever promise yourself you “finish” part of a routine later …and then never do?

On the flip side {yeah I went there} I managed 4 different exercises while reading blogs tonight.. Whoohoo.  Already failed my 12am goal for bed, lets see if I can make 12:30
