Workout Wednesday: Week 3

Hola Workout Wednesday-ers!

I mentioned last week that I wanted to stay even on the scale with the long holiday weekend and I am. I've started the week full blast and have been able to get in a workout each day so far. However, after this mornings work out, I found myself asking, what's more accurate? My Garmin and heart rate monitor? Or, the machine I'm on? Any advise or knowledge is helpful.

Lunch workout and Subway oven roasted sandwich (400c) with carrots.

30 minutes on the elliptical and I was sweating like a whore in church, not that I'd know, I don't go to church (ba-dum-cha!). After the elliptical I went and did some arms, bench press and shoulder press followed by abs.

This is where my question comes from. I did a stationary bike pedaling through the mountains of Kilamanjaro, so it was rough, obvs. The bike says 204c and after the bike I went and did some leg workouts but my Garmin heart rate monitor totaled my calories burned at 187.

The skirt above I found at Costco in the lost and found. Just kidding, I bought it. It's Adidas and very comfortable and the shorts underneath don't ride up which is perfect for my thigh chub. I do however, wish the shorts were just a little bit longer.

  1. Cute skirt! And great job working out. I've finally gotten myself back on the workout kick and it just feels so much better!

  2. I'd definitely trust the garmin/hr monitor over the machine. Those machine's don't get calibrated very often and I've found them to be waaaay off!

  3. Trust your monitor! I love that skirt!
