I’m the type of person that I start a diet and get sick of it and want my sweets/junk food so much that I give up and quit. I joined a gym almost a year ago and lost a good 10-15 lbs when I first started going. After I lost that weight, I gave up and quit going. It’s been months since I’ve been.
A friend of mine texted me last Saturday and told me she was going to the gym. It was so early. I rolled over and started trying to go back to sleep. I then realized that I needed this. I had been praying for strength and energy to go to the gym and so I got out of bed and went to the gym and worked out for an hour. I realized how terribly out of shape I am again and how hard it was to do the elliptical. I went 4 days last week trying to keep it up and go. I’ve been twice this week so far.
Today I tried working out on a different machine.
It’s called the Adaptive Motion Trainer. It is so hard. I thought I was going to die. I did the “fat burner” mode and it switches resistance every four minutes for 28 minutes. I didn’t think I could make it and I wanted to give up. But I suffered through and made it all 28 minutes. I really love that in that 28 minutes, I burned over 500 calories though!
Have you ever tried the Adaptive Motion Trainer?
