unaccomplished workout anyone?

After I get a good workout in and sit down to do whatever I want I feel like I haven't done anything at all like I have not accomplished anything.. does anyone else feel that let down unaccomplished feeling after working out?

I am not a grammar stickler and have never posted a comment before about grammar but this is an instance where I have to say - a few commas and periods would really help. I have no idea what this question is asking.

Is it because you’re beginning a fitness routine for the first time or the first time in a long time? I’m currently doing the latter and find that I have to stop a lot to regroup. I just keep at it daily and find that it gets a little easier each week. Hopefully, this is what will happen for you—your sense of accomplishment will grow, too!

Get a heart-rate monitor - it will track the time you exercise for, your average heart rate and your calories burned. It also keeps track of this over time... so you can look back and say "I burned 2300 calories through my workouts last week" or "I have worked out for 278 hours in the past year." I only feel like I haven't accomplished anything if I don't push myself, and that's up to you to decide. Otherwise, try doing a workout tape that really kicks your butt, like advanced TaeBo or Gilad or Cathe Friedrich.

I can relate! Sometimes I get an amazing, sweating like crazy workout. Then, other days, I'll push myself...but not to the max. It isn't healthy to always push to the max. On those days, after an hour or so, I will feel kinda I haven't thoroughly exhausted myself or something. Hard to explain, huh? It's like I haven't used up all my endurane.
