You’ve heard of the Cupid Shuffle, so now I bring to you the Cardio Shuffle. Today’s workout goal consisted of using the treadmill, elliptical, and stationary bike each for 20 minutes. I then compared the calories burned and miles completed.
- Treadmill: 2 miles / 230 calories
- Elliptical: 1.6 miles / 180 calories
- Stationary Bike: 3.6 miles / 100 calories
I’m sure this all depends on resistance level and ramp angle, so these could vary for everyone. I just thought it was a neat comparison!
I’ve been using my new apartment complex’s workout room and I had really hoped to maybe meet a few workout friends. So far I have only seen females using cardio machines (great!) but they all have earphones in and are watching the cardio machine television (boo!). Today I literally felt like I was screaming at the girl on the elliptical because I couldn’t figure out where my ear phone plug was on the treadmill and she was very focused on her individual telly! Oh well, guess I’ll keep trying!

I turn 25 on Friday. Yipes! Tonight as I was babysitting, I was wondering if 25 means I can still do certain things
Can I still bring Mr. Healthy home a rainforest picture?
Can I still take pictures of each animal proudly?
Can I still create friendship bracelets with the phrases I love John and Healthy Heddleston?
Why yes, yes I can and I might even do a little Cupid Shuffle while I’m at it.
My picture is proudly on the fridge (after signing and putting my age, as per Mr. Healthy’s request) and he very much appreciated my hip and cool fashion bracelet professing my love.
