I'm noticing that the gym is becoming more and more of an obsession for me. It's starting to feel good. What I'm still working on and trying to get more control over is my diet. In due time, I think that'll come however. In terms of diet, I've learned a couple of things:
1. If you record what you eat, you're more likely to eat healthier. I've found that my portion control is better and I'm more aware of when I'm missing out on certain food groups. I don't think it's worth obsessing over, but it definitely has helped me.
2. Simple sugars kill me. Enough said.
Here's what my workouts looked like this week:
42 minutes on the elliptical - 4.25 miles
Tuesday: Crossfit Day
5 rounds of the following:
50ft lunges while holding a 45 lb bar above your head
The burpees killed me, but I ended up doing the workout in 22:36.
Wednesday: Crossfit Day
As many of rounds of the following in 20 minutes:
5 pull ups (I had to end up doing jumping pull ups...again)
10 push ups
I completed 16 rounds
43 minutes on the elliptical - 4.3 miles
35 minutes on the elliptical - 3.7 miles
Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm starting to go to the gym in the morning before work, so I'm hoping that I can do a couple days this week with two workouts. Wish me luck!
