So I went to the gym yesterday...
30 min. elliptical 60 min. weight lifting (machines, full-body, 2 sets 15 reps) 20 min. rowing 10 min. stretch/cool down 10 min. sauna
I felt great after this workout - I always feel so pumped & refreshed during & after a good chunk of time at the gym. (BTW, I go to the fabulous Prairie Life Center...PLC for short...I would highly recommend this gym in you have one in your area! They have multiple locations throughout the Midwest.)What in the world do I eat to refuel after a workout? I gotta be honest, sometimes nothing. I'm not usually very hungry after exercising, so I usually have a big meal before. If do have a light munch post-workout, it's usually raw. I rely on LARABARS at breakfast time (paired with ½ a grapefruit in most cases) and for small snacks after I've left the gym.
The above photo is a boatload of LARABARS that the wonderful Lewis from the LARABAR Blog sent me a LONG time ago (hence the weird photo). Because of the increasing popularity and pure pizazz of video blogging (not to mention the possibility of getting another box of LARABARS,) I've decided to make my own video! Check it out!!
