So, I did a 4 mile DVD during lunch, and then went to the gym this evening. I did the circuit one time and did an hour of water aerobics. My legs and arms are definitely going to be feeling it tomorrow! I have a strong feeling that I am really going to appreciate having tomorrow as a rest day.Before class, we were chatting about dieting and different strategies to avoid snacking at night. I shared my favorite technique. I use the time when I am most tempted to snack to clean vegetables. Usually, I cut up a head of cauliflower, or broccoli. Sometimes I clean green beans or slice some cucumbers. It doesn’t matter if you snack while you clean, vegetables are free. Or, you can do any prep for the next day’s meals. It will keep your hands busy and get you started on the next day’s healthy meals.
I am happy that I find myself falling into some familiar routines. I’ve found some DVDs I like better than others, some exercise equipment I really like, and some classes I enjoy as well. As I get more comfortable with them, I’ll tell you a little more about each of them. But for now, I want to keep exploring my options and finding even more things to like. Variety is the spice of exercise?
