33/365 Sweating in PJs

It’s getting cold outside and that air blows up and down the hallways of our building. When I go to the gym, I put on layers so I don’t freeze on my way in and out. When I took this pic, I was pretty tired from jumping on the elliptical. Haven’t gotten my pre-thanksgiving stamina back yet!

30/365 Making Plans

Sometimes I find myself standing in random places around my apartment, thinking about my plans, goals and how they affect my overall mental health. I’m still learning a lot about myself and what habits and environments make me feel happy, productive or calm. Sometimes when I’m feeling anxious, it’s because I haven’t moved my body around much in a few hours. The quickest way to cure that is to go downstairs to sweat on the elliptical or try some free weights in the gym. I rarely stay in there long, but even a few minutes can really help my mood. It’s easier to focus too.

 

12/365 Sweating in the Gym

12/365 Sweating in the Gym. I got goals!

I didn’t get down to the gym in time so I didn’t have as much time on the elliptical as I had hoped but I did manage to break a sweat. Getting my heart rate up and sweating is my main goal in the morning. Then I do a little stretching, I’m trying to get back to doing the splits! My head gets all shiny but since I wear layers, I can’t quite tell where else I perspire as I’m working out. I’m glad because I don’t want wet stains on my shirts and tights!

7/365 A Productive Tuesday

Today I got up at 5:30am feeling fully awake. It’s probably because of the daylight savings time shift. Anyways, I took advantage of the my time and started my morning routine early. I got a great cardio workout in and headed to the library to get some work done. I was done with everything by 12:30! It was nice finishing my work so soon but I admit, I was bored after a little while, LOL. In the evening I went to a Young Professionals of Plano Pizza Party to celebrate the fact that we all voted. Every new person I met was a financial advisor, strange. Well everyone except this lady who works in the libraries. She showed me how to get my work exhibited in the library for free! This made the trip worth it! Tomorrow is technically my off day but I can’t just lay around!

I made myself this bento from the food I bulk prepped. The teriyaki nuggets are soy! This meal is all plants!
