Workout and Word of the Day #43

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I hope you are having a great week!  I have noticed positive changes ever since I started eating breakfast before my workouts.  I have a lot more energy and my mood feels more stable throughout the day.  My favorite breakfast has been 1/2 cup of gluten free oats with a scoop of whey protein, collagen peptides, and an apple.  I have a cup of coffee on M/W/F, but not on Tuesdays and Thursdays because those are the days that I take pre-workout.

I felt pretty wiped out and noticed that my appetite was a lot higher after yesterday’s leg and hourglass workout.  I have been trying to observe and find out if it is legit hunger or if I am just wanting to eat out of boredom.  I think I also need to do a better job of staying hydrated and I could eat more veggies too.  See?  There are always ways to improve!

One of the definite perks of practicing healthy habits is that they build on each other!  For example, now that I work out I make sure that I clean the dishes before bed so that I have clean dishes to use in the morning.  Also, I do laundry regularly so that I will have clean workout clothes?  These are habits that once felt like chores not so long ago and I am so happy that they have become a part of my life!

What are some of your healthy habits that used to feel like chores?  Comment below to share so that we can celebrate our progress together!

  1. I feel the same way – when we get into a habit and routine – some things are matter of fact and no longer a chore
    And cool word of day
