Fitness Update

The last couple of weeks, I did lower weight with higher reps on all machines and free weights.

This week, I'm doing more weight, increasing weight until 3rd set... 10 reps at least.

I have also been doing 20 minutes on the recumbent bike; I think that's helping break through the fat! Haha. 10 minutes on the elliptical before weights... 20 minutes on the bike... and 30 minutes on the treadmill - with a mile of that on 10 elevation.  Sometimes life run after that... sometimes I just walk fast.

I am about the same weight; between 156-160lbs.  Guess it takes a while to see major results when you've accumulated a good layer of fat :-P

Milestone Reached!

First off, I did 10 minutes on the treadmill, did my upper body workout, and then back to the treadmill to get in my cardio.

I put the treadmill on 10 incline and walked got a mile like that at like 3.4 speed.  I lowered it back to 0 and started run/walking series for 2 miles... alternating every one minute.  For the last time to run, I just continued... I didn't stop after that minute was over as usual.  I just kept on!  I went a whole 5 minutes (at 5 speed) without stopping!!!  That's HUGE for me!!!  A whole quarter of a mile!!!  I feel so accomplished! I've never done that! Not even as a teen, weighing 110lbs!!!  Feels amazing! 

I just continued until I had a full hour on the treadmill as you can see on my picture :-)
