    Making time to work out
    Zevah posted:
    I don't work on weekends so for me there is no excuse not to do some workout and still some days all I want is to be a couch potato.
    But going to the gym on the weekends is even better than during the week. During the week I go to the gym before work and I have limited time to workout and during the weekend there is no pressure and that makes more enjoyable.
    I always feel good after a work out with a feeling of accomplishment not to count more energy and that gives the bust I need to make better choices with my diet.
    Today after my work I went home, icy me knees (I have arthritis) and snack on 5 whole grain cracker with hummus and an apple with low fat peanut butter.
    In the past I would probably snack on regular cracker with cheese and something sweet like cookies, cake ...
    Getting out of the couch really pays off !!!

    Love it! I have a similar plan. You are right, the workout not only gives you more energy but at least for me makes me less likely to sabotage my efforts by eating something unhealthy. Keep it up!
