Yesterday morning, some of my workout gear and toiletries found a new home in my permanent gym locker at work.
Packing for my gym locker was a lot of fun. Here’s what I included:
- 2 towels
- 2 t-shirts
- 1 pair of short
- 1 pair of spandex
- 3 pairs of socks
- 2 sports bras
- 1 pair of shoes
- smell goods
- spray gel
- hair brush
- shampoo and cream rinse (conditioner as most would say)
- toothbrush and toothpaste
- Contact solution
- extra hair ties
Having all of this in my gym locker at work really enables me to the opportunity to break a real sweat before or during work. Up until now, working out before only happened close to home, that way I could shower and still be on the train by 7:30AM. During work, I would go to the gym but I didn’t push myself as much as I wanted as I didn’t want to break too much of a sweat. I wanted to be able to “clean up” but not have to shower as I didn’t have all of my toiletries.
Now with everything in one locker, I can come to work early to break a sweat or get away from my desk mid day to burn some extra calories!
Yesterday I rocked the house with two workouts:
1. 20 minute run on the treadmill (burned 307 calories)
|0:00-05:00||Run at 5.0 mph|
|05:00-06:00||Run at 7.4 mph|
|06:00-08:00||Run at 5.2 mph|
|Repeat 05:00-08:00 x 3|
|17:00-18:00||Run at 5.0 mph|
|18:00-20:00||Walk at 3.8 mph|
and 40 minutes of weight lifting @ work
|Triceps Dips||2||10||Body Weight|
2. Piolxing @ X-Sport Fitness in Alexandria, VA (burned 614 calories in 60 minutes)
Piloxing is an interesting class, to say the least. The name sells it as a pilates/boxing class but it is so much more than that. Our class included boxing, kickboxing, pilates moves, salsa, ballet, and abs.
It’s not that I didn’t enjoy the class, it was just a little odd. I felt like it couldn’t figure out what it wanted to be and thus the instructor came across as “making it all up as we go along”. I had a wonderful time with my friend Katy though and I’m thankful that she invited me to the class.
