Fitness Program Entry #6

And here is the weekend again. 2 days of rest between my workouts??
I have a goal to do one cardio workout this weekend at our local fitness center. I will not do anything with weights/strength training because my trainer said my muscles need to rest.
But I can certainly hit the Elliptical Trainer and the Treadmill down there, ride a bike and perhaps do some crunches. She has me do 3 different kinds: vertical crunches, 1/2 bikes & straight leg.
I will not weigh myself again til next week, but I am soooo hoping for another 3 lb loss. I am trying to focus a bit more on my nutrition now that I am in the "workout groove". My calorie range is 1,200-1,500. 2 days this week I have gone over that upper limit just a bit. I need to get that under control. Today has been an awesome day calorie day at a time.
I am super super proud of myself for successfully completing 5 straight days of working out! 3 days of 90 minute weight/strength/cardio workout and 2 days of pure 60 minute cardio workout. And I super surprised to find out how much I am enjoying it!
Thanks for sharing my journey... emoticon

  1. Congratulations on the progress! It sounds like you are doing really well. This is only my third day of serious exercising, but I hope that I will soon get to your level.

    I'm planning on taking the kids to the pool tomorrow, and then for a walk in the park afterward. I still need to be able to squeeze in at least 30 minutes of strength training though.
