Dust Collector that was the Elliptical Machine
Monday, April 12, 2010
It is a rainy day in CA, not complaining we need the rain badly, but it does hamper the walking. So I was looking around for how to get in my cardio today without actually dusting off the Elipse that hasn't been used in months and months. Nothing came to mind that I could do for the needed time, so dusted off the machine and got started.
I had to stop just a couple of times to grab some water, but got in 48 minutes!!! The three miles I did on there burned double the amount of calories I would have burned on my 3.5 mile walk. Not going to lie, it was tough, and after 5 minutes I thought I couldn't l possibly go for more than 10 minutes, but I did. Stopped at 15 minutes to run to the kitchen for cold water, and grab a bottle of water to use at the machine. I can't believe how jazzed I am actually sticking with it to get in my 3 miles.
My new challenge to myself is to use the Elipse at least one day per week for my cardio.
Now off to find some good carbs to snack on!
