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? – Maulik V Feb 3 '14 at 4:59

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. – StoneyB on hiatus Feb 2 '14 at 22:15

You are looking for the word "today".
