Workouts - This is Pathetic


I've made a discovery.  Maybe it's more of a revelation.  It is not significant and doesn't change the world but does make a difference to me.  I don't know why I didn't figure this out a long time ago. 

What have you discovered, you ask?  I don't like to work out to videos (or DVDs).   Earth shattering, I know.  I have quite a few DVDs and kept avoiding them at all costs.  Silly I know.  There is no reason for it. 

To make this discovery even more pathetic....I also figured out that even though I know how to use the weight machines I seem to not be able to come up with my own workout plan.  I tend to do the same few exercises over and over.  I finally figured out that my successful workouts are ones that are mapped out for me.  I used to follow a blog that almost every day had a workout routine.  Unfortunately, that blog is no longer active. 

I need your help.  Do you follow a blog that provides a new workout routine most days?  I don't have Facebook so I need a blog.  I also don't have a smartphone so an app won't work for me either.  I like cardio (I am not a big runner, and when I do it's almost always on the treadmill) and I like weights.  Any ideas you can shoot my way would be greatly appreciated.   


  1. I love going to Zumba class. It is so much fun, even when you don't know the moves, just have fun and jump around. The first time was kind of hard, but now the hour flies by. You should look into it. I also run, as you know, and see a personal trainer 2x a week. You would think I would be a bit skinnier than I am, guess I need to eat less too. :)

  2. One of my favorite blogs "Honey we're home" just started a new blog: "Honey we're Healthy" She's been doing Live Fit 12 week Trainer which is on that blog. It looks like it gives you workouts every day--search around on her site to find info on it.

    1. Thanks, Lois. I'm going to check that out. I looked quickly and this looks like a good blog. I did run 2 miles on the treadmill tonight. Yeah.
