A day in the life: Tuesday July 28th 2009

Health:
Good day: ate well, drank enough water through the day and went to the gym.

Exercise:

Fitness and cardio for 36 minutes.

Been over 4 months since my last fitness workout at the gym. But I’m trying to continue strength training once every two weeks. My program had at the end a cardio workout of 15 minutes at the running machine. But I run 3 times a week now so I found that quiet unnecessary. Let the instructor change my program. Next time I’ll start with 20 minutes at the elliptical and then 40 minutes of strength training.

What’s for dinner:
I made a chicken panini: chicken breast filled with a bit of garlic, basil and mozzarella and grilled that. Along with it we ate baked potatoes and a salad with honey tomatoes and a bit of honey-mustard dressing.

Thoughts:
Work was okay, didn’t do as much as I wanted but catch up tomorrow. Gonna read some blogs now and then watch Gossip Girl’s episode of last week.

Positive today was:
After almost 4 months did some fitness and cardiotraining in the gym.

Daily Tip/Quote:
You have to wonder at times what you’re doing out there. Over the years, I’ve given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement.
