Well I stayed with the elliptical again today (not doing very good on "varying my workout.") In 30 minutes I went exactly 2 miles and burned 345 calories.
When I got home, I spent about 30 minutes with the snow shovel (the wind WILL NOT WIN!!) so I have definitely gotten the fullness of workout accomplished today.
Snack before I head off to be productive: 1 small banana (90)
Bracing for the cold.
