I'm back to my old cardio and strength routines. I haven't been this happy in about 90 days. I wonder why. (cough cough Tony Horton cough cough).
The only change I'm making is instead of doing weights three times a week, I'm doing them twice and replacing the third with a different strenght activity like yoga or yogalates. We'll see how that goes.
This morning, I'm doing a step routine. I'm sweating a lot. Eddie's at the dining room table, eating some Fruity Pebbles. We're chatting a little. Then he says, This workout is crazy.
I ask, Why's that?
He answers, Because you haven't stopped moving forever.
Heh heh. That's cardio for ya. The monitor that I won gives me all kinds of stats for routines like this, and I'm still trying to figure out why it tells me that I'm not in a fat burning zone for longer than eight minutes of a 45-minute workout.
I'm not going to get crazy about it, though. I like my cardio. I like what I'm doing. I'm going to keep doing it. Part of being fit is sticking to it and liking it. The only reason I stuck to P 90 X for the second time was my problem with obsession. I didn't like it. So in that light, I'm fitter now more than ever.
