That Machine Has It In For Me


Monday, July 30, 2012

I swear the elliptical machine in the workout room at our apartments is on to me. Last night, I went to work out for the first time in about a week. I also continued setting the timer for a minute longer than last time. So when I got on, I thought I'd go a little slow, take it easy. I pressed the button for a random resistance plan, and looked for a semi-easy one. No. That machine had other plans. After a few minutes of going slow, my random resistance plan kicked the level up to 19! That machine only goes up to 20! That elliptical machine was not going to let me off easy.
The upside, besides still getting a good workout, was that I got extremey sweaty. That was what always made me feel like I'd had a good workout before: when my shirt was soaked after. Since I've started again, my shirt has not been that sweaty. When I came home, my hubby was in the shower. I stuck my head in to talk to him, and he could not believe how sweaty I looked. But he usually doesn't see me after I work out, so it probably was a suprise. :P

    Ya know, back in high school, there was a rumor that sexual activity burned hundreds of calories an hour, not because of the actual activity, but because of the feelings afterwards. I really do hope you jumped in the shower with your hubby and burned a few more hundred calories. Of course, I have never found that entry on the exercise tracker, but still... emoticon What a fun! way to burn even more calories.

  I wonder if that machine is related to a car named Christine? LOL. Good for you to keep trying instead of quitting.
