It's Amazing What a Good Workout Can Do for You...

Monday, July 28, 2008

After a week of over-eating and barely maintaining my weight, I think I finally broke through the slump. Yesterday I went to the gym and ran a full 5K, plus did 20 minutes on the elliptical. It felt so good to work out that hard! It had been a while since I'd done that intensity of cardio exercise. I have been doing a lot of strength training, but not enough cardio. When I was done I felt awesome! I was proud of myself for going to the gym and also for pushing myself. It definitely gave me the boost I needed. I came home and was motivated to cook a healthy dinner. Working out is so much more than burning calories...it's about gaining confidence in yourself and boosting your motivation to continue healthy habits.
