At the suggestion of my brother I have decided to set up an exercise routine with precise plans for each day of the week and I am going to follow it for the next three weeks and then see where I'm at. I'm actually writing this post on Sunday night, instead of waiting until Monday morning like I usually do (I'll add my weigh-in comments tomorrow) because I want to put this down and make a commitment to it before I weigh-in tomorrow, regardless of what the weigh-in results are. I'm tired of "winging it" every day and either doing what I feel like doing or trying to force myself to do something. But I am a "planner". I usually do really well when I create a plan and commit to it; under those circumstances even when I don't want to do something I tend to have a higher drive to do it anyway when it's part of a clearly formulated plan.
Also because my brother, who is a very smart guy, suggested it as a method for getting over this bloomin' slump I've been in so good or bad results tomorrow ... I'm gonna give it a shot. I will admit though, my self-doubt is coming back because I've been so negative and lax lately that there is this tiny part of me that is afraid I won't stick to the program. I need to mute that part ... or drown it maybe? So here's the plan.
Monday: Walk 1 - 2 miles & do 10 sprints
Tuesday: 100 push-ups & 200 crunches
Wednesday: Walk 3 miles
Thursday: Walk 1 mile & do 20 sprints

Saturday: Walk 3 miles
