Workout Plan

Patrick suggested about a week ago that we both start working out and eating better. We've both been slacking with both of these and with the wedding about 11 weeks away we need to start some sort of a routine.

Patrick works in retail and his schedule changes weekly. This makes it a little difficult to have a set schedule for workouts. We're going to sit down Sunday nights and decide on when we are able to workout each week. We've found a few different quick workouts that we both can commit to. I'd like to workout 3-5 times a week with these workouts as well as adding in some running and/or walking.

At this point anything is better than nothing.

This week Patrick works:
Sunday- 6-330
Monday- 7-330
Tuesday- 130-1030
Wednesday- 2-1030
Thursday- off
Friday- 11-730
Saturday- off

This weeks workout schedule:
Sunday- Walk
Monday- Short Workout
Tuesday- Rest
Wednesday- Rest
Thursday- Ab Workout
Friday- Butt Workout
Saturday- Weekend Workout

The following are the workouts we found on pinterest and are planning on using to not just get into wedding day shape, but to become healthy and hopefully good role models for our kids.

Hopefully this is something we can both stick to. I did one round of the weekend workout on Saturday and it was pretty intense. We may need to make some adjustments to work our way up to these workouts. I'm just excited that it was Patrick's idea and that we are both serious about this. I just don't want us to get burned out like we have in the past. I guess we won't know if we don't try.
