Changing my workout routine

Iron Tribe. Week 2. It's MWF at 10:30am. They do a 101 class for beginners.

Last week I couldn't walk or stand or sit after Monday's workout until about Thursday. Then, my triceps were so sore after Wednesdays workout, I couldn't move my arms until Sunday. Friday's workout was hard, but I only feel a little sore. was a doozie! I'm going to need an extra set of arms. Seriously. It's high intensity for 6-15 minutes. Yes, that is the time of the workouts. The first one was 6:49 and today's was 15:08. Their reasoning is that you work at your highest possible intensity for a short period of time. You get more out of that than working longer because your intensity level will weaken.  OK, that makes sense.

They touched on eating habits today. We are supposed to bring in our journal on Wednesday to show what we've eaten.....I will get an F on this assignment. Period. I heard the whole, "you won't get change unless you exercise AND eat right".  I just don't know how to get motivated to eat right! I keep telling myself it will make my workouts easier.........I guess I need to test it. Today I've eaten 2 dove chocolates (dark), 3 cups of coffee 2 pieces of cheese, a diet mountain dew and I came home from the WOD and scrambled 3 eggs. So far so good! haha

I should add photos of inspiration since I don't want to post a photo of myself....just go look at my pinterest board...they might be a little far-fetched, but a girl can dream!

and then I found one! This is me and my besties running the Tinkerbell Half Marathon on my 40th Birthday weekend in California. We are having such a good time!! Thanks to Dave Mari for the photo!


  1. The three of you looked very jolly in that picture, Lucy. :) Well, it's necessary to change one's workout plan if things are not improving. Have you consulted a gym instructor? It would be great if you do. Gym instructors know best when it comes to your fitness!

    1. Absolutely, Nicolas. Hiring a gym instructor would be a great idea. Just make sure that you hire a professional one, Lucy so that you don't have to think of another workout plan. The gym instructor should be the one to provide you a workout plan that fits you.

  2. Changing workout routines is good because you get to try more things that could possibly work for your body type. Today, we have lots of exercises which are both fun and effective. Trainers are also there to give us good routines that we can enjoy. By the way, sharing your fitness routine with a friend is truly a wonderful experience.

  3. Wee! Having a great time while getting fit is perhaps the best thing in having your closest friends as your workout buddies. It’s definitely motivating! Wish you all the best!
