Do you use Gmail? If you don't, you should! I love Gmail. Each day I use Google Reader and the Calender function. It makes my life easy. One thing that I really love are the Tasks function. I have about 6 different task lists -- meal ideas, blog ideas, things to do at home, school things to do, goals, etc. Today I decided to use the Google Task function to create a workout before going to the gym. I was then able to print it out and take it with me to the gym. Super easy!
Unfortunately, I have been suffering with bad allergies and currently have a nasty cough. I didn't feel comfortable running or doing things that might make my breathing too labored. So I decided to do high incline walking at the beginning and end of my workout then do lots of arms and abs.It was a great strength workout. I would have loved to have felt better and be able to really push myself with cardio but that wasn't in the cards today. I think having a plan for me with strength training is really important. I don't know much about strength training (I am hoping to get an appointment with a strength trainer soon) so I often just play around with strength training, get bored and leave. Having a list of tasks to complete made a big difference in my workout.
Do you have a plan when going in to workout or do strength training? Did you notice a change in your actions?
