What Makes you Go to the Gym
Whoa! Did any of you happen to do the tempo treadmill workout from this morning? Talk about intense!! I can’t remember the last time I ran over 5 miles with such intensity. It was a great feeling
Also – for those who wanted to know about the taste of the Modern BCAA’s – not too shabby! The taste was yummy, but it wasn’t overpowering. It was more like slightly flavored water, whereas my old amino acid mix had a much more exaggerated flavor. That make sense?
After running and training a client, I came straight home and had some waffles:
Caramelized banana protein waffles, at that! Topped with a mix of Greek yogurt and almond butter and some org. blueberries.
Still so darn delicious.
Be proud of me. While eating the waffle above, I did not think about what I should be doing, but instead perused Shane’s new issue of Men’s Health.
When did Zac Efron get so hot, btw?!?
One of the articles in the magazine talked about what men value most in a gym. The top contenders:
- Locker room cleanliness
- Amount of cardio machines
- Newness of equipment
Not surprised? Me either. I value all of those as well! But do you know the number one influencer on whether people actually go to their gym or not? Hint: It’s one of the above factors
Yep – the closer you live or work to the gym you’re a member of, the more you will be apt to actually go to the gym to workout. So much that it’s the number 1 factor! I can believe it, too. When I was a member of a gym that was 20 minutes away, I rarely went. I also didn’t care for the gym, which may have contributed to my lack of attendance as well.
Fun little hump day fact of the week
The waffles held me over pretty good this morning, but any time I do an intense run, my metabolism is sky high for the day.
Before I headed into work today, I grilled up a batch black bean burgers (which is OMG good. I have to share the recipe with you guys soon) and topped one over a bed of spinach, with tomatoes, 1/2 an avocado, and two pickles – homemade from a client.
Sides included a half frozen chobani and a banana in a near empty PB jar to stir and eat with a fork
I also have a Luna bar for later in case I get hungry again! I have a feeling I might need it.
Back to work. Have a good one, folks!
