Elliptical Workout: 5 miles in 50:30
My main focus was keeping my heart rate up but that is really hard for me to do on the elliptical. I don't know why but I just can't seem to get my heart rate at the same rate as I do while I'm running. It was in the 140s and stayed there. Usually when I'm running I'm more in the 160 range. It doesn't mean that I'm not working and burning calories but it does mean that I'm not training my body to be "running ready" while training on the elliptical. Blarg!
Also in honor of National Love Your Body Day I have decided to love and accept every part of my body today. From the tip of my head to the bottom of my feet; I love every part of my body.
I won't obsess over the gray hair at my temples,
my crow's feet,
the large freckle on the end of my nose,
my non existent upper lip,
my shoulder that doesn't work,
my love handles and
baby cheeseburger/pizza belly,
my thighs that jiggle,
Instead I will realize that the sum of all these parts it what makes me unique. I will not pick my self apart but realize that as a whole I am ME, and even if just for today, I am beautiful.
What are you doing to love your body (Not just today but EVERY day)?
