CALORIES BURNED: 167
Okay. I started the 30 Day Shred. AGAIN. Usually I never seem to be able to get past day 3, I have no idea why.. Okay yes I do. It's called LAZINESS. NOT GOOD! In any event, if at first you don't succeed - well you know the rest. So last night was Day 1. Can I just say, ouch! I was so out of breath and tired and whiney and blecchhhh!! I finished the 20 minutes, but I really don't think I did it with as much effort as I should have. But my body was creekin and crackin! Arghh!
I'm glad I did it though. I didn't enjoy the actual exercise one bit, but I did enjoy the after-endorphins and the feeling of accomplishment I felt aftwards. So I'll keep plugging away. I PRAY that I learn to love exercising... or at least learn to tolerate it and make a habit out of it.
Oh, and I think I'm going to buy a Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) because I'm tired of guessing how many calories a certain exercise is burning. From what I hear, a HRM would tell me exactly how many calories I'm burning at that exact moment. So if anyone has a HRM recommendation, please comment!
