Today I made it to the gym. I went on the elliptical for 42 minutes and burnt 402 calories. I am starting to feel like I am not exercising enough but I'm really not sure how to do more because of time constraints. Ideally I would like to exercise for 1 and half hours and use different equipment. Unfortunately with the time issue I just stick with the elliptical because I seem to burn calories the fastest on it.
Does anyone know if burning 400 calories exercising is a good amount to burn in a day in order to lose weight? I think I am going to do a search online and see what I can find.
Sometimes I just wish I had a little extra time to exercise. It is so hard for me to get the kids up, dressed, hair done, drinks and snacks packed, fed and given medicine before we get out the door. Then I also have to get myself around (coffee, breakfast, dressed, hair done and clean clothes packed for the gym). I can't seem to make it out the door before 10:15am. By the time I get to the gym and get the kids checked in it only leaves me with about 45 minutes to exercise. Does anyone have any advice? I really don't want to get out of bed earlier. We usually sleep until 8:00am.
If anyone feels the same way I would love to hear about how you deal with exercise and time constraints.
