Okay, now that everyone has that little ditty stuck in their head for the rest of the day..(laughs)...
I got up early this morning, and hit the gym running.
Seriously...I am trying to add some running into my cardio, slowly, due to hip/joint problems.
Today I did:
-- 45 minutes on the elliptical hitting 4 miles in 40 minutes and a 5 minute cool down.
--walked/jogged 45 minutes on the treadmill at a 17 minutes per mile pace. I slowly jogged 6 of the 45 minutes. I am trying to go SLOWLY because in the past if I tried to add jogging back in, I moved to fast, and it would put me down with excruciating hip pain for at least a week. So far so good, and I plan to try and add another minute of jogging each day, until I can jog for at least 30 minutes, and then I will start upping the speed. I know that this probably sounds "wimpy" to some, but remember that I was told after my car accident that I would never walk again without the assistance of canes or a walker. I may be moving slow...but I am moving! And it feels great!!!
--30 minutes of upper body strength training.
--10 minutes of stretching out after my workout.
I also have my water quota in for the day (maxed for the challenge), and it is just now 1:00.
I have my breakfast and lunch entered into the tracker.
I am serious for this challenge--this weight is coming OFF.
