Wednesday Workouts

by Courtney on August 10, 2011

Part of the reason I have a love/hate relationship with my Wednesday workouts is because I have no plan. Unlike Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays when I usually have a BodyCombat or BodyPump class planned, Wednesdays are my “do whatever I’m feeling” day.

So on the one hand, it’s nice because I can switch things up and maybe try something new. But on the other hand, I’m such an indecisive person that it causes a bit more of a hassle then it really needs to.

This morning, my body was sore all over from yesterday’s pump class (I love it!) so I consulted my Exercise on Demand for a series of lighter workouts…

Despite it being a lighter workout, the series of three back to back still worked up a serious sweat and a serious appetite.


Nothing you haven’t seen before, folks!


Are you bored with my cereal combos yet? I’m sorry…but not really. Winking smile


Although, today’s combo did have a new cereal to the mix, so at least we’ve got a little variety, right? In addition to the Kashi Honey Squares, I finally opened up the box of Kashi Go Lean Crunch which, if you remember, was bought way back at the beginning of June!


My Kashi x2 was paired with some shriveled blueberries, unsweetened almond milk, a glass of iced coffee, and a special friend…


What you don’t see in this picture is his fetch toy right in front of him and a different fetch toy strategically dropped right at my feet. Somebody wanted to play this morning (especially in the middle of yoga)!

Gotta run…things to do, people to see, cookies to mail. Smile

Questions for the Morning:

WOULD YOU RATHER…(lots of randomness today!)

  • Run 15 miles in a sweat suit on a beach -OR- in a bikini through a jungle?
  • Workout at home -OR- at a gym?
  • Sweat moderately but constantly 24 hours a day all over your body – OR- have a metal pin in your jaw that constantly picks up talk radio stations?

UGH. 15 miles in a bikini through a jungle sounds better than in a sweatsuit ANYWHERE.

Aaaand I am more productive at the gym.

And I think I’d rather pick up radio stations than sweat moderately but constantly 24 hours a day all over your body. I’m already a sweatosaurus rex.

Wednesdays are kinda my “free” day, too! Whooop!


2 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance August 10, 2011 at 9:45 am

Haha! Love Cody in the background of your breakfast :D


3 Lauren @ Chocolate, Cheese and Wine August 10, 2011 at 9:46 am

Your cereal combo looks delish! I wish I were that creative with my breakfasts!


4 Lindsey August 10, 2011 at 9:47 am

15 miles in a bikini in the jungle, I would not want to ever run in a sweat suit!

Home…I just need all the amenities the gym has ;)

I guess the metal pin in my jaw? haha.


5 Jordan @ food, sweat, and beers August 10, 2011 at 9:47 am

Looks yumm, glad you saved those shriveled bluebs (by eating them!)

I’d rather:
-run in the bikini, more likely to have a sexy jungle ranger see me and offer a ride.
-work it at the gym, though neither of those options really result in a sexy jungle ranger and I hanging out…. drats.
-get the radio stations, but mostly because I could finally live my dream of a true soundtrack to my life (though I guess it’d be at the DJs mercy. Hope they’re good!)

Run 15 miles in a bikini through a jungle!
Workout at the gym~although I only do it twice a week. I’m a home body!
Sweat moderately but constantly 24 hours a day all over your body~that’s better than sounding like Screech from Saved by the Bell with a radio coming from my head!! haha!


7 Ashley@MyFoodFitnessFun August 10, 2011 at 9:59 am

15 miles in a bikini through the jungle DEFINITELY.

I’d rather workout at the gym, but I’ve had to make it work at home, and it has its pros for sure.

Ugh sweating when I don’t want to drives me crazy. I’d go with the metal pin.


8 Lindsay@ In Sweetness and In Health August 10, 2011 at 10:02 am

Oh 15 miles in a bikini through a jungle sounds way better!

I would rather workout at a gym- there is so much more equipment and I’m more motivated by seeing other people exercising!

I think I’d rather get radio stations. Hopefully they’d be good ones and then I could have a dance party whenever I feel like it :)


9 Hannah August 10, 2011 at 10:04 am

i think bikini..
gym for sure. i dont have room at home and feel more motivated there.
i hate sweating when i dont want to. but initially i was thinking that. then i read everyone elses comments and think i would rather have the pin. :)

i really need to try to go to body combat but my class that i can go to is on sat ams and sometimes i just want to sleep in a little!


10 Shari @ Chicago Cuisine Critique August 10, 2011 at 10:08 am

Funny questions.
1. Definitely the bikini in the jungle. I hate wearing full body sweat suits when I do any form of cardio! I get way too hot.
2. I would say working out from home, except that I definitely don’t feel that I get as good of a workout in – so gym it is.
3. Definitely the sweat option.


11 Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun August 10, 2011 at 10:13 am

That’s how my Tuesday workouts are. I usually am uninspired and just do the elliptical though. LOL

Fun would you rather questions today!

I would rather…do the sweat suit because I’m assuming a sports bra would be involved and this chick needs support…workout at a gym…pick up talk radio because then maybe I will know more news. I’m sadly uninformed on current events half the time.


12 Samantha @ Running and Cupcakes August 10, 2011 at 10:17 am

Is that the Yoga Sculpt from Exercise TV? Maura something or other does the video? If it’s the same one, I love that video. It’s a fave of mine for when my legs are particularly sore and tired, it makes them feel refreshed.

1. I’d be a jungle bikini babe any day of the week. I try not to leave my house in sweats ;)

2. I love to work out at home for things like yoga where I don’t need special equipment. But when it comes to weight training and of course the dreadmill I go to the gym. Oh if only I had a treadmill at home. So, really, I use them both equally. If I actually had to choose one for the rest of my life – it’d be the gym. Unless I hit the lottery and could buy a treadmill and a weight machine.

3. I’d rather have talk radio. I love to sweat when I’m working out – but it ends there.


13 Ruthie Hart August 10, 2011 at 10:18 am

hey girl! have you ever tried zumba?? or a cardio dance party? I go to cardio dance party every wednesday and it beats sitting on a treadmill for an hour!


14 Candice August 10, 2011 at 10:21 am

Cody is so cute!
Would I rather??
bikini in the jungle.. so i can pretend my name is jane.
gym workout.. its harder to motivate and push myself at home.. I feed off energy of group fitness
Sweat for sure.. I smell all day anyway.. and I like the excuse of being a hot mess;)


15 Tracy August 10, 2011 at 10:24 am

Run in a bikini through a jungle
Workout at home
Sweat moderately but constantly 24 hours a day all over your body


16 Leslie August 10, 2011 at 10:33 am

Ooooh definitely sweat suit, think of all the bug bites with the bikini!!
At the gym, but gym must be close. If gym is far, home is ideal.
And definitely pin in the jaw, I don’t think I’d enjoy sweating non-stop.


17 Girl in the pink August 10, 2011 at 10:34 am

I prefer home workouts – no one gets in my way.. Except my dog :)


18 Katie @ Changing Patterns August 10, 2011 at 10:35 am

Sweat suit on the beach, at home unless there’s a class at the gym and prob talk radio since I sweat like a beast already ;)

I am usually the same way on Wednesdays…I’m so motivated Mondays and Tuesday ans then Wednesday I’m not sure what to do…right now I’m debating on a boot camp class or staying at home and doing a yoga download.


19 Brittany August 10, 2011 at 10:46 am

I’d totally rather run through the jungle in a bikini..
The gym because I get more done and feel more pumped to workout
& sweat moderately since i’m already a sweaty beast and it would drive me nutss to hear a radio 24/7


20 Mallory @ It's Only Life August 10, 2011 at 10:54 am

bikini, gym ,sweat moderately!

you cat is so cute. i am a huge cat lover!


21 Cat @Breakfast to Bed August 10, 2011 at 10:54 am

your cat wants in on your breakfast. or he wants to pounce on you. he has the heart of a lion, you know. (I speak kitty body language) not really.


22 Maria@La_Piattini August 10, 2011 at 10:55 am

Your Wednesday workouts are like my Tuesday workouts. Really no set class that I go to so I usually end up alternating a HIIT workout with some strength.


23 Jamie aka "Sometimes Healthy" Girl August 10, 2011 at 10:59 am

I always love your cereal combos. PS – Still have the Fiber One cereal – haven’t eaten the whole box yet. That’s 3 days. Wahoooo!

I’d rather…
Run 15 miles in a sweat suit on a beach
Workout at a gym
uhhhh #3 is tough…both sound miserable. I guess the sweat thing. I sweat a lot anyway. it wouldn’t be too much of a shift.


24 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles August 10, 2011 at 11:02 am

You always have such a good workout variety. I bet your muscles are ALWAYS confused! That’s a great thing!!!!
-The bikini in the jungle, hopefully NO ONE was around. At the gym, simply because there is isn’t one ANYWHERE near me like 45 miles to the nearest gym. The sweating I think?!? That one is HARD!


25 Khushboo August 10, 2011 at 11:16 am

Rather work out at the gym- more equipment and I love the motivating atmosphere!


26 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen August 10, 2011 at 11:39 am

I think I’d pick the bikini through the jungle. The gym one is tough. I workout at home but if the gym was free I think I’d pick that! And the last one, random but, I’d go with being a sweaty beast :)


27 Brittany@ A Spoonful of Peanut Butter August 10, 2011 at 11:57 am

You are my savior! lol- thank you for posting the link to the Yoga video. That will most likely be done tonight because I am SO sore.

I would rather run with a bikini on in the jungle (even though I’ve never worn a bikini, a sweat suit seems miserable! Plus, the sand makes it 10X harder to run!)
Workout at home- definetly!
Hmmm-last one is hard….I think I’d actually rather sweat continiously but moderatly the whole day. :P


28 Liz @ IHeartVegetables August 10, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Ewww I couldn’t stand sweating all day. And if the metal rod picked up GOOD radio signals, then I wouldn’t complain ;)


29 Taylor @ Crumbs Don't Count August 10, 2011 at 12:15 pm

I eat the same thing for breakfast a LOT…Mine is normally overnight oats because it requires NO assembly in the morning. Love me some low maintenance breakfasts!


30 Lizzie August 10, 2011 at 12:25 pm

Yummmm i love kashi cereal!
you should try strawberry fields. it’s like the special k strawberry cereal, except it has better ingredients and tastes crunchier and yummier to me! :)


31 Shayla @ The Good Life August 10, 2011 at 1:38 pm

I’m going to have to go with run 15 miles in a bikini through a jungle – anything’s better than running with a sticky sweat suit on you!

Definitely workout at a gym – love the energy and all my gym buddies I get to see there everyday!

Hmm this is a hard one but I”ll have to go with the sweating – maybe then I could finally not be so cold all the time!


32 Rosa - Fitness, Food, Fulfilled August 10, 2011 at 2:33 pm

I used to be a total gym rat, but gave up my membership about a year and a half ago. Using some key pieces of equipment, I set up my own gym in my garage and have everything I need there. I do miss the cardio machines at the gym, but maybe someday I’ll have the cash and space for an elliptical trainer.


33 Kait August 10, 2011 at 5:02 pm

I would LOVE to win a signature tree print bc my anniversary with my fiancé is coming up and we just started renting a house! It’d make a great first piece of art!


34 stacey August 10, 2011 at 5:33 pm

35 Courtney August 10, 2011 at 6:17 pm
