Changing Up the Workout Routine!

Went to the gym this morning for two hours. I did two cardio class that really kicked my butt. First was turbo kickboxing and the second one was Zumba. I felt really good and satisfied with myself.

This week I have to make some changes when it comes to working out because my work hours are changing. Before I was able to workout during lunch but now that is out. Since I am two tried to workout after work I have decided to get my workouts in over the weekend. So, Friday, Saturday and Sunday I will be taking two 45 minute classes per day and that will cover me for the week . I should have thought of this sooner. So much easier and no pressure to rush out of work. Also, no guilty feelings for not working out during the week. I never enjoyed working out before, during or after work but I did it because it had to be done. Working out on the weekend is enjoyable.

This morning I woke up feel skinny in the belly and legs. It has to be my new eating habits. I eat very small meals and I don't think about snacking between meals. Like I said earlier this week eating organic will help you drop the pounds. Overeating is not an option when you are eating 100% organic.

Yesterday I walked out of whole foods with a full bag of organic groceries for under $40 bucks($38.66). I had ground beef, ground chicken, beef shanks, oranges, peaches, apricots, bananas, spinach, kale, carrots, onions, potatoes, green peppers, popcorn, cornmeal, beans, milk, cheese, eggs, bread, flour, and butter. All certified organic. I could not believe the price when I saw it myself. It put a smile on my face. So, that is it for the next two weeks.

I notice that Trader Joe's has organic veggies but they come from Mexico and the certified organic seal is not on the packaging. I can not buy food grown and processed in Mexico even the non-organic foods when I was buying them. Yes, Whole Foods is very expensive but their organic foods are locally grown and labeled with the certified organic seal. I am still researching how foods become organic, so far I am pleased with the processed. I am in the process of also understanding farm-raised seafood. Some website states it's not a good process. Whole Foods states their seafood is farm-raised but organic. I will stay away from the seafood for now until I am satisfied with the process.

So that is my world for now.

My tip of the day! Make every moment special for yourself.
