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.
