Summer Working Out

Hello UIC!

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer! At the start of summer, I made sure I got a membership at a gym nearby since I want to achieve my fitness goal by September. I’m using the summer to learn to eat healthier and work out for a healthier heart. I started out running outside and on the treadmill and doing arm workouts with weights.

Apart from being in the gym, I actually started making fruit smoothies with protein shake in them. Since I am vegetarian, it’s more difficult to get my protein in so I started eating cottage cheese and more beans in my diet.

Hopefully I can meet my goal by the end of the summer!

This is the pool at the gym I go to. It's amazing! Swimming is one of the top three exercises since it minimizes joint impact.
