Good day! I’m having a good, but cold day so far. To start my day, I had my favorite breakfast: whole grain toast with peanut butter, banana, honey, and wheat germ. And of course some Starbucks to warm me & wake me up.
In leui of my January fitness plan, some cardio was on the books for today. As much as I desperately wanted to run, it was about 4 degrees this morning. Yikes! Outdoor run = out the window. Thankfully I have access to small gym in my apartment complex, but I wasn’t keen on an indoor run today. Ugh, how I loathe the dreadmill! I really just feel my best running outside. Running on the treadmill takes more coordination for me, something I don’t have a lot of.Instead, I opted for a quick but tough elliptical workout.
What always keeps me motivated when working out indoors is music. A lot of my favorite songs came on today, helping me keep up the pace.
Soundtrack for Today
- “Toxic” – Britney Spears
- “Where the Streets have No Name” – U2
- “Dancing in the Dark” – DEV
- “Give It Up to Me” – Shakira
- “Vertigo” – U2
- “I’ll Meet You There” – Owl City
- “Part of Me” – Katy Perry
Also, I’ve decided to keep a workout log on the blog from now on to track my progress for 2013. And after that workout, I’m starved! On the menu for lunch today is a chicken, avacado, and cheese melt along with some Trader Joe’s Organic Lentil soup. Healthy, delicious, and very filling!
Now I’m home the rest of day hopefully to get some to-do list items done and stay toasty!
- Question for you: How do you stay productive when it’s cold and gloomy out?
