Today, I decided that I would do the elliptical for a half hour.  I wanted to increase my intensity and get a good workout.  Many times, when I am working out solo, I slack off.

I ended up going for calories more than time.  I burned 500 calories in about 37 minutes.  I’m setting a goal for 1000 calories in an hour or less.  I’m not sure how long it will take to work up to that, but it will happen.

After my elliptical workout, I decided to work on triceps.  I did the cable pull 12 reps at 60, 50, 40, 30, and 20 pounds all in a row without breaks.  I already can feel it.  I’m determined to get strong enough to do triceps dips with good form.

I also spent a few minutes talking to Kim about the BOSU class.  I have planter fasciitis from doing one of the exercises incorrectly last week.  I don’t want to stop going to the class, so we talked about some modifications to help the “injury”.  I’m looking forward to trying them tomorrow.

Next up: BOSU sculpt tomorrow afternoon.

Today’s food was ok.  I definitely didn’t eat enough vegetables, but I’m doing great without white flour or refined sugar (allowing honey and maple syrup in moderation)  I’m out of time to be specific, but I’ll be back tomorrow with another detailed log.
