Does shopping count as a second workout?

           Ok, my Spring Break is coming up and I’m pretty excited about it. Janelle, Ashley, and I all have the same Spring Break this year. Since I have a goal to be at 100 pounds lost by May 11 I figured I would step it up with the working out for the week. Janelle is all about it. She wants to do a regular workout and then do something like a boot camp style workout or a hike or a run etc, etc. I guess that’s ok, but I was more thinking of a regular workout followed by long days of shopping. I think it’s a good idea and Ashley does too. She even pointed out that once you start buying, you have to carry bags around and that will help burn more calories. I like the way Ashley thinks.

            Honestly, I know I’m going to do 2 workouts a day. I don’t know how they will be planned out, but it’s going to happen. I will also go shopping with the girls too. It’s becoming our little Spring Break tradition.

            Every week I get in 5 workouts, no matter what. So I’m thinking I will do 10 workouts over my break. I’ve already decided that I will just take a sleeping bag to the gym and I’ll just stay there for the week! Gas is pretty expensive right now and it might add up driving to the gym two times a day!

            It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. I’ve done two workouts a day before and I don’t remember it being that awful, but I’m a little worried what Zach might come up with for me to do. He’s been going to a lot of training clinics lately and coming up with all kinds of different, crazy crap for us to do. He refers to our workouts as “The Framers” (I think that’s it) because we’re building new frames.

            Wish me luck, it might be brutal.


  1. wow.. it DOES sound brutal! Good luck!

  2. I haven't had spring break yet. It starts April 1. I'll let you know if I survive!
