New Gym Routine!

Wow!! I have to say that I was worried about if I could wake up at 5 am to work out. However, I did it!!

I previously worked out Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 6-730/745 pm. I found that this was cutting into family time in the evenings. I also wanted to start working out 5 days a week, which would bring my work out frequency back to what it was before I got pregnant with Baby A.

Now that Baby A is 9 months old I am working even harder at getting my body into the shape I want it to be.

This week started my new workout schedule.

Monday- 530-630 pm
Tuesday- 515 - 630 am
Wednesday- 530-630 pm
Thursday- 515 - 630 am
Friday- OFF
Saturday- 8 am - 930 am
Sunday- OFF

I am really excited about this new schedule as I will be able to separate cardio & weights most days. I also discovered today that the morning crowd at the gym has WAY better gym etiquette than the evening crowd, which is a HUGE bonus!! The gym is busy on Tuesday mornings but not crowded which is nice. The evening time was so crowded that the benches and cardio machines were almost always full and I was always bumping into people. It makes working out uncomfortable when Its that crowded.

I look forward to getting into a new routine. It was very difficult to wake up early this morning but sooo worth it. I am hoping this routine shows the benefits that I expect!

What is your gym routine? Do you ever switch it up?

Be Happy Healthy & Strong!



  1. I usually have clients in the morning so I workout about 5pm this is my favorite time to break a sweat. Even if I didn't have clients, no way Jose LOL.

  2. @The Frugal Exerciser: LOL morning time isn't for every one :) It's going to take me some time to get use to getting up early haha.
