Sweet Sweat

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!
