Good Habits Breed More Good Habits

One of my favorite times to work out is directly after a long day of work.

It can be hard to motivate myself to work out after a long day in the office, but I never regret when I do it. Working out as soon as I get home from work gives me a second wind for the rest of the night. It also makes me feel like I deserve to relax, which makes relaxing more enjoyable later on in the evening.

Last night's workout was interval running and walking for a total of 1 mile ran and 1 mile walked. My husband joined me on the track. I always love it when he works out with me!

After our workout, I was craving a salad. Good habits breed more good habits. So, instead of making chicken alfredo, we made grilled chicken salads. (And when I say "we" made dinner, I really mean my husband made dinner. He is the grill master, after all!)

When is your favorite time to work out?
What have you been craving lately?


  1. I love morning workouts. It's the most relaxing time of day for me, no one else is awake, at least no in my family. So I can enjoy them without feeling like I'm missing out on time with my kiddos.

  2. I wish I could get myself up in the morning to get in a workout, but I agree, I get a second wind after I do a run after a long day. Sometimes I have to go sit with my feet up for 30-60 minutes before I get that "you have to get a run in" feeling, but it usually always come and I am enjoying that feeling.
