Health Club Day 2

Well I made it to the health club after work yesterday. I even did my 35 minutes on the treadmill at a faster speed and higher incline. When I was done I jumped up on the eliptical. To say that this machine as it had in the past kicked my tail-end is an understatement. I did 3 minutes on this machine using the arms and then checked my heart rate. 138! I read online that anything over 134 no longer burns those little ugly fat molecules. So I stopped using the arms for the last 2 minutes and ended my cardio experience on a heart pumping note. To think that a little over a year ago I could do 45 minutes on that machine with no problem gives you an idea of how far I let myself go.

It was then onto the weight machines and I added another two lower body machines to the two that I did on Monday. I also added an upper body machine and after doing the five machines called it a night and went home to eat some dinner.

Hope that you do something healthy for yourself today whether it be physically or mentally.
