I want to tell someone about the same day [current day]. For instance:

I've worked out at the gym 2 hours ago and feel good as a result [now]. Now I'm listening to music and surfing the Internet.

Are my sentences correct?

  • As tuespetre said, what about 'taking about the same day' concern?

It sounds like you want to check the tenses.

Because your workout was already in the past, you should say it with the past tense,

I worked out at the gym 2 hours ago and it made me feel good. Now I'm listening to music and surfing the Internet.

Instead of "it made me feel good", you can also just simply say,

I feel good.

If you want to emphasize that you're feeling good at this moment, you can also say,

I'm feeling good now.

    A little more precisely: present perfect is a present tense and you cannot use it with a time adverbial which does not include the present. What you can say is "I have worked out within the past two hours and I feel good" -- that is a time adverbial which includes the present. Commented Feb 2, 2014 at 22:15

You are looking for the word "today".
