Drop 2 Pounds this Week

Posted Apr 09 2009 5:46pm

Since I am on the diet and exercise mode this week, the article with the said title from Yahoo caught my attention. As I was reading through it I told myself that taking off the excess pounds can be difficultly complicated. lol. I don’t think I can do it. Just looking at the list makes me want to give up the idea of loosing weight. haha. Here’s an excerpt of the article.

Activities to burn 500 calories:
• Walk 40 minutes at a level 8 on a hilly course (or crank up the incline on the treadmill).
• Do 36 minutes of running intervals: Jog for 1 minute at a level 5, sprint 1 minute at a level 9. Repeat 18 times.
• Take a 45-minute Spinning class.
• Dance to a good beat for 72 minutes at a level 7.
• Hit the elliptical machine for 60 minutes, doing intervals. Do 2 minutes at a level 8, then 1 minute at a level 5. Repeat 20 times.
• Swim freestyle for 50 minutes at a level 8.
• Use the rowing machine for 40 minutes, doing intervals: Go 8 minutes at a level 8, then 2 minutes at a level 4. Repeat 4 times.

Activities to burn 250 calories:
• Walk for 35 minutes at a level 7.
• Run for 20 minutes at a level 7.
• Bike for 30 minutes at a level 5.
• Dance for 50 minutes at a level 4.
• Hit the elliptical machine for 30 minutes at a level 8.
• Swim freestyle for 25 minutes at a level 8.
• Use the rowing machine for 28 minutes at a level 8.

Activities to burn 100 calories:
• Walk for 25 minutes at a level 4.
• Run for 12 minutes at a level 4.
• Bike for 17 minutes at a level 4.
• Dance for 20 minutes at a level 4.
• Hit the elliptical machine for 15 minutes at a level 5.
• Swim freestyle for 15 minutes at a level 5.
• Use the rowing machine for 25 minutes at a level 5.

Right now I am on a no rice diet. I decided to fast this Holy Week as well as start my exercise regimen. I found two nice videos of Pilates and Yoga which I am trying everyday. And I say, its refreshing though a bit difficult with all the bending and twisting. I am hoping that I could really be serious this time.
