For one thing, I am hungrier because I am burning a lot more calories than when I do my normal activities, like watch TV. My new work-out includes riding the exercise bike, lifting weights, and doing floor exercises such as sit-ups. I have calculated that I am burning approximately 400 calories. This means I can eat something I want to later.Like ice-cream. I mean, everyone knows that dairy is one of the four essential food groups (the others being whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and chocolate), so it is imperative that I eat some dairy.
I get out a bowl. I get out the pint of ice-cream. I get out the ice-cream scooper. And that is when it dawns on me: my biceps! My biceps are now so strong that scooping out frozen ice-cream is much easier than it used to be. I scoop out twice as much twice as fast.I love exercise.
