I can't tell you how happy I am to see those 80's disappear. They really scared me. I don't ever want to see them again. Not on this side of 200, anyway.
So I totally kicked some elliptical ass last night with Amanda. She has a serious workout plan. She does lunges and upper body work and lower body work and treadmill work and she's crazy. Just sayin. She sent me a picture of her mid-workout. I sent one of me post-workout. We shared sweaty pictures. Which sounds worse than it really was.
I did 30 minutes which burned 300 calories and 2 miles. Yea! I've never sweat so much in my life. Sweat was dripping, dripping off my arms. My arms! It literally was running down my face. I couldn't wipe my face fast enough toward the end. That was cool, actually. I kept tabs on my pulse (thanks Cardio Class teacher!) and stayed below 30. I did intervals of 5 minutes fast, 2.5 minutes slower, 5 minutes fast and so forth. Toward the end, all I could do was a constant moderate.
I had a bit of a mishap, though. My kneecap locked on me a few times cause I pushed my speed just a bit much. I was in the "Rocky Moment" meaning I was all gung-ho and wanted to push myself to the limit. This means, of course, that I went past the limit and now it keeps doing it. Anyone got a remedy for this?
So today is my day with Roxie. Poor Roxie. Somehow along our quick communications, I completely forgot to give her my number. She faithfully did her workout this morning without any wexting. I feel bad. Sorry, Foxie! Fortunately it's been remedied. She has my number and I have hers (which I had and I still didn't text. Bad jafg!) and she'll be wexting me tonight. Roxie's got her own 30 day challange she's giving herself. Mosey on over and read about it.
Well, tonight I have a date with my Wii. I'll have to dust it off and see if I remember how to turn it on. I'm trying a new game. It's "My Fitness Coah". If I don't like it, I'll go to the Boxing in Wii Sports. LOVE the boxing. And the swordplay for that matter. Both tend to get the heart going a bit. Especially the boxing. I also have the She-devil workout-also known as Jenny McCarthy Your Shape-but I don't think my arms and legs can take that this time. I'm feeling this 7-day challenge.
Tomorrow I'm going to see about another class at the Y. Either that, or I'll be hitting the elliptical again.
I am so looking forward to my eighth day.
