What to do when you eat too much Easter chocolate? Plan your workouts for the week!

I’m always telling my clients to plan, plan, plan. Plan your meals and snacks. Plan your splurges. Plan your workouts for the week.

Failing to plan = Planning to fail Β (a cliche I know, but still very true)

My favourite day for planning is Sunday. That way when the busy-ness of Monday (or Tuesday, this week, as the kids have tomorrow off school) arrives, there’s no room for wavering on my workouts or making meal mistakes.

For the first time ever, my gym is closed on Easter Sunday! That means that I didn’t have to teach this morning and that I was home for the annual Easter egg hunt. Of course, that also means that I ate too much chocolate for a non-workout day!

What to do? Plan my workouts for the week, of course!

Here’s my planned workout schedule for the week:

  • Sunday; rest and each chocolate (DONE!)
  • Monday; Teach Total Body Conditioning in the morning, attend Hatha Core in the evening (I missed yoga yesterday morning to spend the day at Stanley Park with my family)
  • Tuesday; Upper body weights workout
  • Wednesday; Trying a Dailey Method class with my sister (something new for me that I’ll surely be writing about!)
  • Thursday; Lower body weights workout
  • Friday; Metabolic strength and core workout (I’ll probably do Spartacus 1.0 again), although since my Monday Spin class was cancelled, I may need to swap this for some cardio
  • Saturday; Hatha flow

  1. Sounds like a great week ahead! I can’t wait to keep up with your #PROOF. I have been sharing on Twitter after every workout too. I’m taking pictures if I remember and posting them on my Tumblr page and tweeting that link out.

    I have an online personal trainer (Tina from Best Body Fitness, I think you know her from FitFluential) and so I have a plan that I follow but can pick out my own cardio. I like to switch it up a lot.

    Here’s to a great week!

    • Love the #PROOF campaign! Although I feel like I need to get more creative in the types of pics I post…
      Tina’s program sounds great. I’ve been watching everybody’s comments about it and thinking what a great business idea she has! I’ve trained one of my clients via Skype; not site the same as in person, but it works in a pinch!

  2. I don’t plan my workouts
    I have a rough idea of what I want to get done during the week and just kinda go with the flow since things change up minute to minute around here!
    but loving #PROOF and have posted some of my pics πŸ™‚

    • Tara, you seem to get it done even without a pre-planned schedule! I’m jealous of you. If I don’t plan, it doesn’t happen; clients, classes and kids get in the way…

      • yea I work best when not scheduled/planned since my day changes from minute to minute depending on daughter, work, dog, life in general… πŸ™‚
        same stuff you deal with but I thrive on ‘free spirit’ mode and not ‘scheduled’ but I do have a ’round about’ schedule…like get up in wee hrs of morning, go to bed in early hours of morning! LOL and get everything else done in those other 20 hrs πŸ™‚
