It’s been about a month since I started using MyFitnessPal again and started hitting the gym. I didn’t make it to the gym as often as I had liked, life happens, but something is better than nothing. Here’s what I burned in the month of January!
1/7: 34 Minutes/298 Calories
1/9: 52 Minutes/534 Calories
1/10: 47 Minutes/470 Calories
1/14: 48 Minutes/430 Calories
1/16: 57 Minutes/530 Calories
1/23: 30 Minutes/241 Calories
1/28: 42 Minutes/408 Calories
1/30: 36 Minutes/317 Calories
All of that was done on the elliptical. I love that machine! As you can see I try to do at least 30 minutes but a few times I almost made an hour. It’s funny, as much as I don’t like people, I find that gym time passes faster when I have someone to talk to. Sometimes there’s a coworker on the machine next to me and we’ll talk about random things like football or how much college costs. Of course if I’m alone I just watch the TV the gym has or just stick my earphones on and rock out.
And since I started keeping track of calories I’ve dropped 6lbs! I started at around 130 and right now I’m at 124. The best part is I see a difference as well. My pants aren’t as tight, my muffin top isn’t as bad and I just feel better. It’s amazing what you can do when you really want to do it. Now if I know I’m going out to eat I try to look info up before I head out. I’ve been trying to cut out the soda (it’s a battle) and drink more water. Granted, I normally consider my weekends “free” and don’t track as much, especially since I’ve been watching the Ravens which means extra food and beer! It’s not like I’m shoving my face though, I still try to watch what I eat.
Hopefully I’ll be able to make it to the gym more this month. I want to try to throw in an Xpose Fitness (stripperobics) class too if I can. I might actually try to do that tomorrow if I have the time.
Oh and in September I plan on taking part in a Color Run 5k. I actually really dislike running but it looks really fun!
Is anyone else out there hitting the gym?
