As for the weight, I've lost 35.3 pounds since I started working out, which means that I've hit my personal goal #2, to break 300 pounds. OK, I'm still a super heavyweight, but I am 35 pounds less of the woman that I used to be.
This month I am back on the workout trail, and I have worked out the past 8 weekdays straight, right on plan. I switched the workout from lower time on the bike, and higher time on the rower at moderate intensity. Now I am working out 20 minutes on the bike, plus 2 minutes on the rower at high intensity every day. That appears to be keeping my heart rate in a good target zone, longer.
I am also trying out an iPad app for fun, called Gympact. The idea behind this app is that you set a target number of workouts each week, and also how much money you want to put up for grabs. The Pact is a weekly commitment running from Monday to Sunday. If you meet your Pact, you get a cash reward for each day committed, paid for by those who didn’t get to the gym. In theory. Rewards are apparently $0.50 to $0.75 per workout made.
I worked out all last week, but the app had an update Sunday evening that wiped out my account. I am trying it again this week to see what happens - I am 3 for 5 workouts this week, right on track for my target.
