I had a pretty decent workout today. I’m fortunate that my job has a gym onsite, and for $20 a year I have access to cardio equipment, weight machines, and Judge Judy on TV.
So today after work, I did two sets of 15 burpees with push ups (so surprised I could do them!), some lunges while carrying a medicine ball, ran 2.85 miles on the treadmill, stretched, light ab work with the medicine ball again, and ended with some clams for hip strengthening.
I had never used the medicine ball before, but found a site that had tons of great exercises. I will definitely add these to the mix when I’m at the gym!
Post-workout, I’m feeling pretty good, but my feet are sore. I wore my new Asics, which I’ve already discussed at length…but I’m still pretty sensitive to heavy impact since the stress fracture. A good massage and maybe a little ice should do the trick!
Another great thing about my workplace is that we have access to Nutrition Counseling for 6 free sessions with our insurance. I have been chomping at the bit to get signed up, but I still haven’t had a session…
I want to get nutritional help from a dietitian for a variety of reasons:
- Learn to eat a balanced diet.
- Become less dependent on eating out…i.e. cook for myself!
- Learn how to eat and get lean during race training.
- Save money!!
- Find a plan or philosophy that will keep me committed to eating healthy!
Anyone have insights on ways to achieve better nutrition? I’m already a member of myfitnesspal but I always fall off from logging my meals. I’d love to add more friends, just add a comment! Am I over thinking who to choose for counseling? Let me know what you think!
