I loved reading about all of your fitness goals and accomplishments yesterday. I think exercise enthusiasm is contagious. When I talk with members at our gym, the people who seem most excited about their workouts are the people who are trying something new or working toward a goal. They also seem to be the ones who want to talk about their workouts and goals at length, which, in turn, makes me feel excited.
Yesterday I adopted a new goal for myself: Complete Jess’ Summer Shape Up Program!
I am planning to follow her workouts for the most part, though I may modify them from time to time to fit my schedule and workout desires. (For example, I am loving the Wednesday boot camp classes at my gym, so I’ll likely continue with those and shuffle her workouts around a bit to compensate for any changes.) The program is only four weeks, so it’s nice and short, but I already feel 10,000 times more excited about my workouts. Apparently the fact that I am a planner in my day-to-day life means I’m also a planner in my fitness life. I like a schedule!
This morning I woke up early for another morning shift at the gym. It’s my last morning shift of the week! Hooray! Unfortunately this means I am working in the evening this week as well, but a little variety never hurt anyone.
During my time at the gym, I took the time to update the whiteboard with a new functional workout and took a few people through it which was a lot of fun. Anytime I take people through a functional workout of some sort, I find myself feeling more and more excited about teaching a boot camp style group exercise class in the future. I’m hoping that will be my next endeavor at the gym when the group exercise schedule changes later this summer.
Breakfast this morning was a grab-n-go meal.
Yesterday I stirred together a cup of strawberry Stonyfield Greek yogurt together with some almonds and packed it up in some Tupperware so I could grab it and eat it on my way to work. I also mixed some cottage cheese in with the yogurt in the Tupperware as well, but did so after I snapped the picture. An apple was also enjoyed about 30 minutes into my shift.
As I am sure you assumed, pictures of my meals these days are usually snapped the day before when I assemble them since I feel weird taking pictures at work in the break room and the lighting there is horrific. Adaptation, my friends!
