I made it to the gym 6 times this week:
Monday: Core Strengthening class (30 min) and TurboKick (1 hr)
Tuesday: Lower Body Blast (1 hr)
Wednesday: TurboKick (1 hr)
Thursday: 35 minutes on the treadmill (3.6 miles)
Friday: Spin class (30 min) and Core Strengthening class (30 min)
Saturday: 35 minutes on the treadmill (3.7 miles)
Sunday: Took a day off, but did go on a 30 min bike ride!
For the first time in my life, I think I can say that I actually enjoy working out. I always go through phases of getting in a good routine, and falling out of it. I finally feel like I'm starting to actually want to go to the gym. Not like I have to. But after all, it's only been one month. Hopefully I can keep up with this for the other 11.
As for what hasn't been going as well as I would have hoped, well that out be following the 80/20 rule. I'm gonna be real and say that I sucked this past week, like real bad. I may have had cookie dough on more nights than I'd like to admit, and same with pasta. But hey, at least I have the work out routine going for me?
Something that helped me get to the gym multiple times every week was adding variety to my work out routine. I tend to get bored really easily, and I think the same goes for healthy eating. If I'm eating the same snacks/meals every day, I get bored and start craving those amazing carbs that I love oh so much. So what am I working on this week? Variety. I want to cook more, and find more recipes that are both healthy and delicious, starting with this one:
I'll be making this feta-chicken couscous salad tomorrow night for dinner. If it's as good as the other Cooking Light recipes that I've tried, I will definitely be back to share!
