Today I made a list of all the workouts/exercise I like or want to try.

  • Running
  • Dance (ballet, jazz, tap, modern, hip hop)
  • Biking
  • Rollerblading
  • Pilates
  • P90X
  • Boxing
  • Kickboxing
  • MMA
  • Weight lifting
  • Hockey
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Hiking

I think that pretty much covers it. In the past I was a dancer. Now I am a runner. I want to get back to biking and rollerblading (when it’s not over 100 degrees out!) I hike occasionally but would love to do it more. I randomly do pilates and kickboxing, when I take a class or do a dvd. I would love to play volleyball again. I was once very sought after to join the team. It’s been a long time since I played basketball and I only did hockey in gym class so it might be fun to really learn. But I am not a fan of ice skating so maybe not. :

One of my running goals is to run a 5k, 10k and half marathon. I am not sold on a marathon but who knows… maybe after I hit those three goals I will want to accomplish that too.

Currently I am focusing on my running and losing weight. Once I have lost my 48 or so pounds I want to focus on strength and lifting again. Currently I don’t have enough time at the gym (got to catch a bus) so I am focusing on cardio and dropping weight.

I have always wanted to learn how to box. Those workouts are intense and such a great workout. Then my BF got me into watching UFC and Strikeforce and now I wanna learn mma. I have a pass for two free classes at the gym Ben Henderson trains at so once I am a little more fit I will take advantage of those.

What do you do to keep in shape? Do you have any workout goals you’d like to reach? What workouts do you like to do? What do you want to try?
