I am developing a Love/Hate relationship with the gym. I have been really good about getting myself there at least 3 times a week- typically Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. I feel really good about the fact that I'm going. BUT, I'm frustrated that I don't really have a focus. I need some sort of measurable goal since I'm not trying to lose weight. Maybe I should take measurements, or do some sort of preliminary fitness test or take "before" pictures. I'm not sure. Any suggestions?
In other gym news, yesterday, after doing a 50 minute Zumba class my gym buddy Katie and I did a bunch of dumb bell exercises to work out our biceps, triceps, and shoulders. Then we did some ab work as well. I AM SORE. I hope the meds I took will kick in cause it hurts to move. Ideally I'll have a rock hard beach bod by this summer- even though I'll be vacationing in the mountains. What are your favorite exercises?
Now I just need to get my eating in check. I struggle to hit my appropriate calorie intake so I end up justifying eating fast food. NOT GOOD. I have high cholesterol so I suppose I need to stop ignoring that fact. I'm looking for some good healthy food that isn't too "diety" since I'm not on a diet and definitely need to hit my calories on days I exercise. I can't afford to buy new pants if I drop any weight! I know, I know, #skinnygirlproblems.
Also, I'm on Fitocracy and Sparkpeople--- can't decide what I like better. Hit me up if you want to follow. Oh, and I realized I owe a ton on my taxes, so help a girl out and check out one of the ads on my site!
