A little over a month ago I started sharing with y'all my eating habits and workout routine. It's been tough tracking everything I eat, especially when it's days where I snack alot. I do think it has made me more accountable and I've enjoyed tracking my workout routine. My meals are not exciting, you've probably noticed that I'll eat the same thing for lunch & dinner for a week in a row - that's what happens when you cook for one. What I've become most aware of is eating out, I probably eat out at least 4 to 5 times a week (mostly on the weekends). My goal is to cut back on eating out, for example, tonight I am making homemade pizza and salad instead of going to Fellini's. Also, for Lent I gave up sweets and fried foods. Not eating fried food definitely makes me feel better and I don't really miss the sweets.
My gym workout is pretty consistent - spin class on Monday nights, either the elliptical or treadmill Tuesday through Thursday, and then a run outside on Friday. I would really like to add in a weekend run especially now that the weather is nice! I'm typically at the gym for an hour a night and average 3 miles on the treadmill or elliptical.
Are you curious what my gym looks like? It's a 2-story gym with weight training, spin room, fitness room and free weights on the 1st floor and cardio machines on the 2nd. My go to spot is the 2nd floor - but it's kind of creepy when its busy because you can feel the floor bounce!!
(there's a small area on the 2nd floor with about 10 bikes)
(at least they face a window, so the views nice!)
I think it is so important to find a gym that you like and one that makes you feel comfortable. I love going to the gym after work, it's my time to unwind, catch up on some tv or read my book (yes - I read while on the treadmill and elliptical!).
Have y'all enjoyed reading my Weight and Fitness page? Do you have any questions or suggestions for me?
I haven't necessarily lost any weight, but I do feel much better in my clothes - and really, that's all I care about!
