I finally went back to Vera Fitness after a long hiatus and had a WONDERFUL  morning workout. Now that I have my own heart rate monitor, I was able to track my approximate calorie burn for the whole workout instead of just the cardio portion: over 600 calories, the majority of which I burned during the 30 minute workout on the Kinesis wall with the trainer.  (I ❤ the Kinesis wall–the exercises are always so different!)

All of that left me in a very good mood. It’s summertime and things are looking up, especially now that Seattle has returned to somewhat normal temperatures.
