I took advantage of the late afternoon warming to get over to the gym. It is amazing how refreshed and energized a person can feel after 60 minutes of music and spinning class! When I went to my first spinning class this summer while on vacation in Colorado, I felt like I’d been hit by a tornado afterwards (the altitude probably didn’t help either). In any case, tonight I cycled with ease and to me a small sign of progress in my fitness.
It may seem odd to include the occasional fitness update with a food blog, but not if you consider the goal to be overall health. I’ve come to realize that you need to do both in order to be “fit.” You need the good food to have the internal fuel to push your body in exercise and you need the exercise to get the energy to take on making good food. So get moving and then go make some magic in the kitchen.
