I'm really psyched about my gym workout routine. After 18 weeks of doing 9 machines at a time, it's time to mix it up a little so that my body doesn't get too used to the same ol' and cause the exercise to be ineffective on my muscles. So now I'm doing just 5 machines in different order which cuts my workout time in half (or gives me more time to do cardio and stretch). This also allows me up the weights. Now I have NO excuse not to go to the gym 4-5 times a week. I can easily swing by on my lunch break or after work. I love it when my life becomes even more simple.
Summer is the time to kick back and relax and for some of us relaxing means kicking back with a cold one, and a regular 12-ounce beer contains around 150 calories.
