3:22AM and I'm at the computer.

Bread in the bread machine at 2:30AM AFTER
Out of the shower at 2:10 AM AFTER
reading online reviews of ellipticals AFTER
jumping OFF of the treadmill at 1:00 AM AFTER
jumping ON the treadmill at 12:10AM AFTER
jumping OFF the broken elliptical at 12:09 AFTER
jumping ON the not-broken elliptical at 11:50PM AFTER
getting home from a date night at 11:15PM ......

Yup, that's how my life rolls sometimes.

And, I was planning on getting my next Combat workout in this morning but ended up doing some online/computer work instead. Then, I was going to do it later afternoon, even had my HRM on and shoes on and everything... got on the phone..... for the next 45 minutes, and decided to give it up and get the workout in tonight after the date night. When we got home, the family decided to watch a little late night tv (an episode we had dvr'd and really wanted to see), so I figured I'd jump on the elliptical and watch at the same time.

You know, Chalene Johnson at the end of Turbo Fire 60 is sweating up a storm and says, "You can't have the kind of fun on a machine". Well, up until now, I've agreed with her 100%, but, you can if it's going kurplunk & kerplewey and you're on it at the time! First I heard the snap. Then I heard the crack. Then I heard the grinding as I tried to move it again. Then BOTH foot pedals crashed downward at the same time! All eyes were on me, that's for sure! LOL

Anyway, guess what got added to our weekend plans???? A trip to buy a new elliptical! Have a great weekend folks, you might not hear much from me!


PS. But the good news is that I 1.) Finally did get that workout in, even if it wasn't what I was planning on and 2.) between the elliptical & treadmill tonight I burned 486 calories!
