My Exercise Pledge

I got up at 4am and got my flabby butt back to the gym this morning.  Go me.  And actually, once I was there I enjoyed the workout.  Well, except for the guy who kept dropping weights behind me while I was on the treadmill.  Seriously, is that necessary??

At my last surgical follow up, the exercise specialist said she was no longer going to track my weight, but instead track my body fat percentage.  Which means I had to step up my strength training exercises in addition to my cardio.

So, I’m making this my workout pledge:

I WILL go to the gym four days per week.

On those days, I WILL do 30 minutes of cardio.

On the first and third gym day, I WILL do 20 minutes of upper body training.

On the second and fourth day, I WILL do 20 minutes of lower body training.

On the days that I do NOT go to the gym, I WILL do at least 30 minutes of cardio at home (Wii fit, walking, dancing, etc).

I WILL do my hip flexor exercises daily to losen and stretch my hip joint.

So, there you have it.  I WILL be under 40% body fat by my one year follow up next month.

And holy crap!  I’m nearly a year out!
