Oh my word! I burned MORE calories than what this heart rate monitor is showing (let my friend borrow it at first)! Ha! Even if that was my total - it would have been a record high! I had an AMAZING day at the gym!! Grand total for the day?
Yeah, oddly enough - I was 1 calorie shy of 2400!
I was at the gym for about 4 hours! I started out working with my friend, Laci. When she finished up, I decided to stay longer. I thought, maybe an hour more? That turned into almost THREE more hours! I've been called insane more than once today! Maybe I am? I just felt really good today and decided to take advantage of the extra energy!
I worked out on the elliptical(unrecorded 374 cals), ran, did strength training, walked, and did some exercises with a medicine ball! I feel like a beast! It's great!
One thing that helped me was watching "I Used To Be Fat" on MTV. It happened to come on, and I zoned in on it. It was pretty motivating to see someone's journey unfold in front of you. The added bonus was the trainer pushing the girl on today's show! I found myself working harder when he was pushing her! Woo hoo! I'm going to have a "I Used To Be Fat" story of my own soon!
Oh, I mentioned that I ran today - I ran 4 miles! I have 17 of 30 miles complete with 16 days left in my challenge! I'm definitely going to finish this challenge, even if it's not the way I had intended to finish it! Maybe.....just maybe....I'll win that iPad? Never know....
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! I'll be back on Monday for weigh-in! Looking for a good number this week! Fingers crossed!
