Alrighty then!

This is just by increasing the speed to 3.1 from 3.0! If 10ft = 1 story and I climbed 968ft/ 10, then I climbed 96.8 stories in an hour 🙂

Thought I’d post the photo first! I did pretty well today! Increased the speed by .1 and I burned 50 more calories and climbed about 200 more feet!! Yes I am excited lol 😛 As I said yesterday the incline adjusts to keep your heart rate at what you entered. My target heart rate is 153 to start off with. As days go on I will increase my heart rate so the incline will rise and I will burn even MORE calories. My goal is 1000 cal/per hr! It is doable. If you don’t sweat and feel hungry towards the end… you’re not doing it right.

So I made baked chicken and spinach with  chopped up boiled eggs… soo good! I use garlic salt and lemon pepper to season my spinach. It’s canned spinach, Popeye brand. Cooking healthy takes less prep time than cooking fattening. Really! Well excluding frozen food you nuke in the microwave. I try to stay away from heating things in the microwave.

I didn’t do Insanity tonight.. we are going to let my mother-in-law use it (it’s hers anyway) so I can cut down some fat. Like I said earlier, they are very advanced moves and my legs and stomach get in the way! The trainer on there says to keep good form, and I can’t. So I am going to keep walking all month to cut off some fat inches first! By that time she will be through with her first month.

“You’ve heard it a thousand times, “muscles weights more than fat“. It’s the go-to thing to say to someone when they’ve been working really hard, but the scale hasn’t moved. So let’s look at this a bit more realistically. One pound of fat weights exactly the same as one pound of muscle. Whoa, did I blow your mind? The real difference is the volume. One pound of muscle is visibly SMALLER than the same weight in fat. Not to mention, it’s smoother and more compact compared to the jiggling mass of fat. Which would you prefer hanging off your rear end? Muscle works harder FOR you than fat does. One pound of muscle will burn 50 calories a day, versus fat which only burns 4 calories a day. So the more fat you have, the more YOU have to work to burn calories.
So why bring all these super interesting facts to my blog? Well for one thing – the scale doesn’t measure ANYTHING! You’re biggest indicator of health is how your clothes fit and changes in your strength.” – re-blogged from http://jiggleymommy.blogspot.com/2011/04/pound.html

I did the photo merge on paint with the text 🙂 Pretty interesting huh? This should motivate y’all to keep going, even if you hit a plateau for the week! This image of fat vs muscle will forever be burned into my head.

Ok, I need to get to bed earlier tonight. I’m getting up early to workout since we have to go to his aunts wedding tomorrow around 11am.

Goodnight 🙂
