Food & A Good Workout

What I put in my body really makes a difference. I see it all the time, especially with taking this interval training class where we run sprints and jump rope. I always feel like the workout on Thursday morning is more challenging for me than Tuesday’s class. It could be that it comes later in the week, but I think it’s more the fact that I typically eat pizza the night before since we have some people over to watch Survivor. Pizza is delicious, but it’s also salty, cheesy, greasy and generally fatty.

I notice a difference when I run too.
While I guess it may seem like a bit of a pain, I’m glad that I can tell that what I eat affects me. We’ll see if it helps me change my food choices, but it’s certainly good to be aware.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    I completely agree. I notice the same thing and am also aware that the time I eat contributes. When I don’t eat after 7 P.M. I wake feeling much more energized and not necessarily hungry.
