I am really and truly tired today. I was up extra early this morning, to the tune of 4am. I drove my sister and brother in law to the airport for their flight. They are on their way to Montreal to take in the sights, relax and enjoy some racing!

Needless to say, after getting up that early and then working, my umption in my gumption had certainly left the building without me by the end of my work day. I told my husband when I called to let him know I was leaving the office for home that I didn't think I was up to going to the gym. I got home, we had dinner, we walked the dog around the block. He was ready to head to the gym and I just didn't feel like it.

I went though! I went and I worked out, and I struggled. I was tired, I was feeling it but I did it. I did 10 minutes on the stairclimber, I did resistance training on my legs, I did another 20 minutes on the Stiar Climber, then I did twenty minutes on the stationary bike and then I did 20 minutes on the Elliptical. You see I was tired and I was having a hard time focusing all of my energy on one machine so I moved around today. I don't do that very often, but I did get a really good workout in.

My activity Accountability Chart today:
Activity 1hr:24min:41seconds
Time in Zone 1hr:23min:22seconds
Average Heart Rate 135
Maximum Heart Rate 153
Total Calories Burned 1156.

As you can see from my heart rate and my calorie burn, it wasn't an overly intense workout today, but considering I was on my fourth or fifth wind by then, I think I did pretty good. I'm proud of going to the gym, when really I could have just sat on the couch and been lazy. I made a choice, and I feel better for having made that choice.

Have a good night everyone! Talk to you tomorrow!

  1. Yay for pushing yourself! Every day doesn't have to be olympic worthy workout and you got in a pretty darn good one which was so much better than the couch!
