Feeling Good

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?
