Edit: Scratch that Zumba Flat Abs; I found Hip Hop Abs on my computer for a 6 minute ab workout and it was awesome and kicked my butt haha. I can feel it though so I'm totally going to start doing that more often haha, damn! I also forgot to mention that I bought a new water bottle (since I somehow lost my favorite one when I was camping with Chaz & Co. :( ) and I have been drinking a lot more water! But I'm still constantly thirsty and I have really dry skin so I need to moisturize as well. But I just bought a Hello Kitty humidifier on Amazon! Yay! Here's my new Camelback water bottle from Target.

I have added a few (right now) meaningless pages to the top of the blog, don't mind them for now.
Today's results! Some elliptical and a set from the ab sheet.
Good Hair Day Dilemma = SOLVED

Here's the sheet from Real Simple. You do each of them 10 or so times each for a set:
OH! I also set up my Excel workbook! I'll post that another time though.
That Went Fast!

Now, my results from my first night!
I think I will save my blogging for before and after my workout, not during because I was definitely slacking at the beginning while trying to multi-task, so my distance is a little weak. However, once I posted that entry, I put the phone down and stepped up my game. I was around a 67-70 speed, which I think is okay for me to go hard right now because I am not new to the elliptical, I'm just new to tracking my weight loss achievements and goals. A speed like that for beginners might give them sore calves in the morning. To prevent this (for me personally), I was drinking lots of water while I was on the machine and if I seem to get uncomfortable stepping forward, I almost always end up stepping backward on it. While doing this I also like to let go of the handles (which can be dangerous, so if you do this PLEASE be careful!!) and try to work on keeping my balance!
Hmm... blogging is a pretty nice cool down... :) Off to finish my giant cup of water! Remember to always rehydrate!
Let's Begin Now.
So, tonight I am starting out on the elliptical because the rain always makes my back hurt, so low impact will be just fine. Below is what the set up of our elliptical machine looks like, although there are more buttons on the other side, but I will work up to those ones.
Tonight (as I type this, to be exact) I am doing the Weight Loss 1 button on the side. It is 30 minutes of progressive incline. The levels are 2 - 4 - 6, each with more resistance than the last for about 2 minutes each, and then the 6 goes back to 2, and so on. I'm at 100 calories so far! I think I will do this for 2 weeks, as many times as I can each week. And then go to Weight Loss 2 for 2 weeks and so on until I can work up to the buttons that say things like "Performance" "Aerobics" etc on the other side.
The elliptical machine is upstairs, which is awesome because my dad has a theater up here and my Wii is hooked up with Netflix AND I have 2 more seasons of Skins [UK] to watch, so I am definitely excited to be doing all of this and having something to pass the time quickly and make it not seem like a workout at all. First night's result post coming up later!

But I will say that either tomorrow or Tuesday I will officially begin the start of hopefully, eventually turning into a cute little hottie! I'm still young, but I think everyone can agree that time seems to be flying by a lot faster than it used to so I need to begin ASAP. I have an exam tomorrow and I have to stay at the Hess' to finish my last day of dog sitting until 8pm or so, but they have an awesome workout room (check out the picture below), so if I arrive back here at a decent time, maybe I really can begin tomorrow! I would begin tonight but I need to study. Who knows, maybe I'll read some notes on the treadmill...
Let the Games Begin!
