Soo, this morning, my alarm goes off at 5:00, just like it always does. I was not impressed, just like I never am. I spent about 10 minutes debating whether or not I really wanted to roll out of my nice cozy bed and go out and play in the -5 (or -8, depending on which thermometer I was looking at) temp to go to the gym. It is *really* cozy in my bed ya know. So I got up and put on my workout clothes.
Here, actually, is non-scale victory #1. I worked out in my husband's undershirt. The undershirt that I used to refuse to wear because it touched me and was way too tight. Today it was loose enough to work out in. Woot.
Anyway, I got to the gym and did my normal 30 minute Express Circuit at Planet Fitness. Except there were a couple of people hogging the machines I needed at the end, so I went off and did some backwards crunches. The kind where you lay flat on a bench, and bring your knees up to your chest. Holy lower ab workout, batman! After those two people left, I went back and finished my circuit. Well, at this point I had only burned like 300 calories. That's just not enough for me.
And I rocked a total calorie burn of 541 for 50 minutes of exercise. Woot.
OH! Speaking of awesome calorie burns. Go buy Just Dance 3. Right now. It's fabulous. I bought it for the hubby for Christmas, and we finally played last night. SO MUCH FUN. (Also, I stomped his butt. I win.) I did about 4-5 songs, total of 30 minutes. I only turned my heart rate monitor on during the songs, so it didn't count my heart rate during down time. Just during the songs, I burned a total of 211 calories. Not bad for my "rest day" huh? Love!
