Yesterday, I set a goal for today. It was 750 calories in one hour on the elliptical. Mission accomplished.
I usually would get bored after 20-30 minutes on any cardio equipment. Since I want to work up to 1000 calories in one hour, I didn’t want to get bored too early today. So, I brought a book. I’m sure my intensity wasn’t as high as it could’ve been, but I completed the hour and hit my calorie burned goal. It feels great! I’m going to ramp up my intensity a bit at a time over the next couple of weeks and then I should be at my 1000 calories in an hour. It might take a little more sweat and a little less reading.
