Girl with a Plan

I hope you are enjoying your Saturday!  I will be spending mine at the pool and going out to dinner for one of my college best friend/sorority sister’s (insert Valley girl voice here ;)) birthday.  I am really looking forward to seeing all of my girlfriends and catching up.  Although most of us live in the same city, we still don’t see each other as often as we would like because of that little thing called big-girl life seems to always get in the way!  Speaking of…if you have a group of girlfriends you can’t live without, you will relate to this post…and you will also most likely cry, but in a good way.  35 Things I Want My Daughter to Know About My Girlfriends

As I set out for the gym this morning, I was determined to go with a plan in mind.  Sometimes this happens, sometimes it doesn’t. There are many days when it is considered a success just to get my butt to the gym, but when I go in without a plan, I almost never end up getting the level of workout I could (or should).  It doesn’t take long to do, it’s just about taking a few extra minutes, maybe the night before, and writing down my plan of action.  Then, you don’t spend half of your time wandering around aimlessly, when you could be breaking a sweat!  Below is my workout for today, along with a little cardio.  One of my goals lately is to improve the muscle tone in my legs, so you may be seeing a lot more leg workouts in the near future!
