Oh my burning thighs....First workout of LMP yesterday was great. Some squats, some lunges, some dead-lifts, some chest presses and shoulder presses. Nice 20 min workout. I probably won't do this workout as often as they suggest as I like a bit more of a burn and 20 mins isn't going to cut it. But it's a good disc to use to get used to the moves.
This spoke to me because quite frankly if I don't burn about 500 calories, and I'm not sweating profusely when I am done with a workout, I don't feel as though I accomplished anything. Anyone else feel this way? When people post on My Fitness Pal that they did "light cleaning" and they count it as exercise, I think really? that's not exactly exercise. I mean I suppose if you strip down your entire house, wash all the windows, all the floors, and every wall, you can get a good sweat going, but some "light cleaning"...nahhh that isn't going to burn enough calories to justify the margarita you are thinking of having now as a reward for cleaning the house.
The tree is still up. It's still cold out and the snow by the shed is still too hard and tough to shovel. Maybe if I get some motivation later, I will do it and count it as exercise on MFP. HA!
Prepping for the work week. Lots of salad, squash and some shrimp. Doing laundry, I'm going to count the number of times I go up and down the stairs today and count that as exercise as well.
By the end of the day with all my chores, I'm calculating I will burn at least...umm...200 calories.
