Despite having a few cracked ribs from coughing so hard these past few weeks I went on my Octane Elliptical Cross-Trainer and kicked butt for an hour!
I wore the heart monitor and made sure I kept an eye on my heart rate (HR) and kept hydrated during the slow down periods of my workout. Here’s my stats:
In 60 Mins I “ran” 5.44Kms for a total of 390cals burned with an average HR of 135bps. My goal is to do the 10k program on my machine which will help me tone up what I have under the loose skin from the weightloss to date.
While I’m not working every day, I NEED to continue to be on the down side of this weightloss journey and now that I’m feeling better, I NEED to push myself to stay active regardless of how my ribs are feeling right now.
I feel good about the workout and hope I can do it again either tomorrow or the next day. Not sure yet how I’ll feel tomorrow so we’ll see how it goes.
Todays weigh in is 220.8lbs - Soooo not happy with this number either but will try harder to start bringing it down again…
