My husband & I started working out at the gym 3 days/week just a little over 7 mos ago. He's been great at getting me to go when I just didn't feel like it. Some days I didn't work out my hardest, but I went!
The machine I HATED
from day one was the elliptical. On the first day I couldn't finish 1 full minute at level 0 (no incline)! I always avoided it & used the treadmill. One day I learned the elliptical can actually burn more calories. Hmm, maybe I would give it another try. So gradually I started using it.
Well, tonight I hit a personal goal I have been trying to achieve.......45 minutes at level 1 & 2!!! I burned 413 calories!
I was so excited that when the calorie monitor hit 400 I startled the woman next to me because I threw up my arms and yelled "YESSS!"
Thanks for letting me share this with you!!
