Spring Workout Schedule

Thursday Workout: 1 hour Zumba and 1 hour BodyPump


I tried a different Zumba class at my gym after school today and I wasn’t really in love with it. I just didn’t think it was intense enough so I’ll have to try a different class in the future. I’ve been keeping to my BodyPump goal of 2-3x a week and went both Tuesday and Thursday this week.  I’m getting close to the amount of weight I was using a few months ago when I was going all the time.

I’ve come up with a workout schedule that I can hopefully stick to this spring.  I will start Hal Higdeon’s Novice 1 Marathon Plan on January 17 and want to continue to go to BodyPump.  If possible, maybe add in yoga on the off days.


I know that I will not be able to go to 3 BodyPump classes each week, but I know this schedule will help me stay flexible so I can move things around when necessary and get to at least two classes.


I used my new Le Creuset dutch oven to make dinner last night.  My Mom got it for me when we moved into the new house.


I made the same Chickpea and Dumplings recipe (Peas and Thank You) that I’ve posted a bunch of times already.  It is so good and easy to make! Doesn’t it look pretty in the red dutch oven? Ina would be so proud…

My Mom and I love the Barefoot Contessa (Food Network) and she always has her Le Creuset dutch ovens in her kitchen looking pretty.


Not really sure where this post is going… but I’m getting tired! I need to hop in the hot tub to make my sore muscles feel good, shower and get to bed! Have a happy Friday!
