I have a hard time making it to the gym during the work week. On Saturday, I have no excuse, especially since there is a gym in our building. Traditionally, David trains me on the weekends. I NEVER feel like going to the gym on my own. I have to be made to go. Once I go, it’s pretty okay, it’s the getting there that is difficult for me.
Eating enough but not too much before hitting the gym on Saturdays is a fine balance. Too hungry = difficult to really give it. Too full = just want to go back to bed. I made a lot of chimichurri the other day to go with our skirt steak dinner (recipe soon!), and this morning, I topped some chimichurri over scrambled egg whites as my “pre-workout eats” — delicious! I can’t eat too much before I work out, but being hungry this morning didn’t help my already not-enthused-to-have-to-workout self either… so some protein boost of egg whites topped with a dollop of flavorful chimichurri was perfect.
