On Christmas Eve, we hit the gym again. My sister continued on with running (God love her, I hate the treadmill) and I did interval training on the elliptical for forty-five minutes. I started out at the highest resistance (20) and every three to four minutes, I would bring it down by one (1). It was pretty tough and I was sweating a lot, but it felt great to get it done.
I did some planks, push ups, stability ball work and a few weight machines. I think we were at the gym a little over an hour. We were definitely sweaty and burned enough calories to enjoy Christmas Eve drinks and goodies guilt-free (though truth-be-told, I probably would have enjoyed them anyway).
I really enjoyed the switch-up with the elliptical because I was getting a little bored of running and I think taking a break from it was necessary!
