I finally got to the gym last night and I think I will go again! I worked hard and was exceedingly proud of myself for going in the first place, since I didn’t go until 9:40pm! I know that morning workouts are better for you because you end up burning more calories through the course of the day, instead of sleeping like I did, but working out at all will vastly improve my condition and ability to burn calories in general, so nights are good for now. I am also considering working out in the early morning before Eric goes to work but I am NOT a morning person and the thought of working out at 5:00 in the morning makes me laugh that I am even considering it!
The other reason that I am proud of myself is that when I got home from the gym, I ate a huge salad with lots of veggies and tuna on the side for protein. I sprinkled on a bit of cheese and ranch dressing. I know that’s not that good for you, but I don’t use that much (really) and its better than not eating the salad. Fat is not the enemy, excessive sugar is.
I have been shaky all morning today though and I don’t know why. It’s weird; it is the way I feel when I’ve had too much caffeine and not enough food, but I’ve had no caffeine and I just finished a large bowl of yummy chili. Who knows…I hope to work out again tonight, but I think Eric might be home too late. I am glad to be starting this routine because it is one of the harder ones to keep up.
I’m off for a little rest while the kiddos nap.
