Workout Wednesday

I'm back to a normal routine & working hard to control my calories, which means tracking my eating more diligently than in the past few months. 

Workouts for the week:

  • Monday - skiing
  • Tuesday - skiing
  • Wednesday - an hour of elliptical + a few (ski) runs with Sam
  • Thursday - nothing, driving back 
  • Friday - Orange Theory
  • Saturday - Orange Theory
  • Sunday - Orange Theory

Highlights - getting back to calorie tracking, doing a much better job of avoiding evening snacks. 

Lowlight - I've been pretty hungry, as my stomach adjusts to the changes, and recovers from the holidays. ;-) 

What about you? How are you doing with your health & fitness?


  1. I am trying to get back to portion control after the holidays.... Taking awhile though because of the leftovers (baking that needs to be eaten).

    God bless.

  2. I need get back to walking, my preferred method of exercise, been really lazy recently.

    1. I feel like winter always comes with lower energy (lack of vitamin D/sunlight, I suppose)? So, I have to work harder in the winter months to motivate myself.

  3. We are in Palm Springs for a Film Festival, and have been walking instead of driving, averaging between 5-6 miles a day.

    Once we return home, we will be implementing a training plan to prepare for our walk across Spain this spring. My cardio output is great. Where I struggle is with weight strengthening and yoga for stretching. I so prefer being outdoors than indoors!

    1. Your current plans and your Spain trip are making me green with envy! Love it!! You enjoy every moment of that.

      I started doing Orange Theory for the strength, which comes with the bonus of harder cardio as well (usually 2-2.5 miles of running, plus rowing). I am the worst at yoga and making time for stretching. I foam roll my back every night (it is always sore), but really need to do a better job with yoga.

      Lately the weather has not allowed for outdoor workouts at all!

    2. The first time I did a circuit program like Orange Theory, my husband said my face was white when I returned home, Circuit training is hard! So, yeah on you! :-)
