Another week is closing, which means weigh day is staring me in the face again. I am slightly less anxious about it, though, I must admit. This week has certainly not been perfect (eating-wise), but I am not too concerned. After spending 45 minutes at the gym last night I felt pumped. Actually, I did not want to leave the gym, but I knew I had to. The last thing I want to do is work out so furiously that I am sore for days after (which would discourage me from going back until I felt better).
I managed to sustain 10 minutes on the elliptical machine at a moderate pace. Then I went to circuit training. Of course, I was unable to successfully complete all machines within the circuit, but I am sure over time I will be able to do them all. I will be heading back to the gym Monday evening, and I am truly looking forward to it.
This weekend should have plenty of exercise built in. Today we are heading up to the park for a grill out with the chicklets. Tomorrow we are planning a trip to the Cincinnati Zoo. This will be the first time all summer my husband will be able to make the trip with us, so the chicklets are excited. I still intend to dance at some point today and tomorrow, though.
It is amazing how much exercise can really change your life. Before I was exercising on a regular basis I always felt tired. I almost never felt like I had enough time to get anything (productive) done throughout the day. Now, even though I am taking away up to an hour each day for exercise, I feel like I have more time. I am much more energetic, and am able to accomplish so much more each day. Just yesterday I did laundry, dishes, schoolwork, went to the gym, cooked a great dinner, spent time with my chicklets, and so much more. Amazing.
How are you feeling this week?
