I stepped up my routine. I am now up to one full hour (sometimes one hour and 5 minutes) for a total of 900 calories on "the machine".
My t-shirt is soaked by the time I am done. My shorts feel like I peed in them at the end of my cardio. There is a puddle of sweat that dripped off my arms directly below the hand grips. I am working out like a maniac.
Well, not really. I could go faster, I guess. I am on a resistance of 12 and incline of 11. I log in over 7000 strides and just under 5 miles per session.
I have bumped up most of my weight routine too. I am pushing a lot of weight on the machines. Holly is making me work on push-ups. Not very good at them yet. I am almost on the floor level. This week I had to do them on risers use for step aerobics. They were about 18 inches high. It is a huge difference from doing push-ups on the railing.
Weigh in - 1 pound.
I guess it is slow and steady!
