Apparently, I am not supposed to be working out and getting my heart rate up to 160. I've been told that is too high. Hmmm. What to do with this knowledge...
I know! I'll go to zumba! There's zumba at the church on Tuesdays, so I joined in for the second time. The room was so warm, I knew it would be a sweaty day. And it was. She started with some hip hop music and moves, but there was also some Latin and ethnic music, too. Oh my gosh, was I sweaty. I still prefer Renae's class, but this is a good one, too. I can't attend this one every week, but it's worth throwing in once in a while. This time she lead us through zumba for the whole hour before getting us down on the ground to do ab work. And planks. Oh, how I hate planks. But if my abs are sore tomorrow, it will be worth it.
Once I got home, and it was bedtime for the little one, she tells me that when I lay down with her and I don't shower, I remind her of bed bugs. I'm not really sure what that is supposed to mean, but it can't be good. Since I didn't have time for a shower before she went to bed, I just changed my shirt. That seemed to make it okay.
After she went to sleep, I changed back into my bed bug t-shirt (no reason to stink up another one in the same day) and headed for the rec center. I just found out today that the person who logs into the weight room the most in the month of May wins a free membership month. Well, it's the 3rd, so I'm already 2 days down.
I wanted to do a little circuit training and work out my arms. I started out with a mild warm up on the bike. I did 10 minutes and rode 3.5 miles. I have no idea how fast is fast, but it seemed like a good distance to me. I'll have to do some research on that. I didn't do the Kyle circuit program but instead went from machine to machine as quickly as I could. I finished up with the bosu ball kick ups and then hit the treadmill. I did a quick seven minute run to finish the whole thing off, and once again I worked up quite a sweat.
According to MyFitnessPal, I burned 1014 calories. That's almost as much as I can consume in a day. All I can say is that if I don't lose at least a pound this week, I will not be happy!
