Today my trainer was brutal. I normally don’t dread the gym or watch the clock to leave. He wanted me to do a water weight test. This required me to burn 600 calories on the treadmill without drinking water. He wanted me to sweat until I was dripping, which is hard for me to do. No matter how hydrated I am or how hard I work out, I rarely work up a good sweat. It took me about 75 minutes to get to 600, and I wanted to quit the first 5 minutes. I was happy when it was over. Those kinds of workouts are no fun. I like dancing and circuit training, or I get bored. He weighed me before and after my workout to determine how my body holds on to it’s water weight. He has me coming back in tonight at 6:30 for a weight training workout.
Thankfully it’s lunchtime!
I’m super hungry and need to fuel up for my workout tonight. For lunch I am going to have a bowl of Amy’s Organic tomato basil soup and homemade onion rings!
Homemade onions rings, freezer bought onion rings, and restaurant onion rings are extremely high in fat and calories. They are usually breaded with butter, bread and fried in vegetable oil. If I’m going to eat onion rings, I’m going to make sure they are healthy and beneficial to my body.
