The other reason I am feeling extra good about my health? I have worked out 5 out of the lat 7 days. I have a membership to a gym a 6 minute walk away from my place so it's easy to go. I tried going in the morning before work but it just didn't work well for my schedule. I felt rushed in the morning to get to work and then I was super hungry all day! Working out in the morning just made me want to eat more. But I think going in the evenings works well. I find it more relaxing because it gives me time to unwind from my day. Also, an added benefit is that there's no temptation for post-dinner snacking throughout the evening. Well, except for a well-deserved bedtime snack post-gym!
Here I am before my workout tonight:
And here I am post workout. Tonight I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the stairstepper. I burned 475 calories (according to the machines) and worked up quite the sweat! I also did some abs, stretching, and physio exercises.
Gotta love the faux 3-way mirror! As you can see I really got my sweat on.
Motivating quote from my workout music tonight:
My Body tells me no, but I won't quit Cause I want more,
cause I want more- My Body, Young the Giant
Hope everyone had a great Friday!
