Joined a new gym

Monday, March 02, 2020

I finally joined the new gym. Of course the minute I decided to join a new gym and actually try to go, I sprained my finger ( still aches) and my ankle started acting up ( limping and in pain). I decided to stop waiting for my aches to stop and go ahead and join. I should at least be able to ride a bicycle and do machines that don't require a lot of grasping with my hands. Today I have to do a few errands after work, so my first day will be tomorrow. The thing I am worrying about is that I need an extremely low calorie snack to eat before I go because I am usually so hungry by the time I get home from work that I could almost chew my own arm off! Just kidding about the arm, but REALLY hungry.

    What rotten luck - you joined right before the gyms were all closed down! I hope you've been able to keep up some physical exercise on your own. I wouldn't feel bad about needing to eat a snack before you go, if it keeps you from binging after you work out it is totally worth it!

    If you like milk, it is quick and nutritious! It often staves those hunger pains for me between meals

    SP as some great articles suggesting good snack for before and after workouts. Maybe they could haelp you. I hope things go well at your new gym

    Try pairing protein and fiber for your afternoon snack. Apple and 1 Tbsp Peanut butter, Mozzarella stick and veggies, egg and fruit etc.

    Don't stress about the snack, your body is telling you it needs fuel. Maybe try incorporating a small healthy snack during your afternoon break and see if that helps stave off the hunger at the end of the day. Have fun at your new gym :-)
