I Am a Beast!
I thought about this picture earlier, when I was being whiny and magenta. I decided, "Eff it," and put on my workout clothes. I grabbed my HRM just to see what was up, because I needed raw numbers to get me through the workout.
I noticed something strange about 1/4 in.
I didn't feel as hot and sweaty, and I was moving better. So, I kicked it up a notch.
My heart rate was the highest it's ever been (but still within a safe range), and I could tell I was rocking the HELL out of that workout. I freaking love Turbo Jam Cardio Party (Mix #1). This is definitely becoming my go-to workout.
Anyway, I didn't have to sit for a spell halfway through, and I was still dancing through the water break. I pushed it all the way to the end.
Check my HRM:
I realize it's blurry. It says "TOT CAL: 1483".
I burned 1483 calories!
My highest ever was 1087.
I'm a beast!!! RAWR!!!
I feel happy and inspired again. If I can push myself that hard six days per week, I could drop two pounds per week from exercise alone. Obviously, I might not hit that number every time, but it's encouraging, and I feel pretty bad-ass right now.
