I normally tough it out in the house with our small generator and as many small appliances as I can plug in, but not this time. This time I grabbed the dog and the credit card and checked into a local Holiday Inn.
So instead of being surrounded by family on Thanksgiving, I found myself surrounded by fitness machines.
When the power went out, I was not a happy camper. After walking by the fitness center a few times, I decided that I needed to shake it off. It was the perfect place to earn a little #holidaysweat workout challenge points.
I started my workout with a 20 minute ride on the stationary bike. I do not use fitness machines often (ever) besides our own treadmill, so I really had no idea what I was doing. I choose a calorie burn workout with a max level of 7. OMgoodness. It was HARD and I was seriously sweaty.
Next I jumped on the elliptical. On this one I selected a 20 minute cardio workout. Loved it. I felt like I was running. The best part was my mom FaceTimed me during the workout. She thought I was an awesome heavy breather, haha.
At the end of the 40 minutes, the smile was back and I was feeling better. Can you blame me? Look at the calories I shook off.
After my workout, I leashed up the dog for his workout. We walked for about a mile.
How was your Thanksgiving?
Did you get in a workout?
