Vanessa's journal. Help with good meals and recipes would be great!
Hello, I am currently exercising twice a day. In the mornings I do machine lifting on every machine listed below for a minute straight (1 set). Really low weight, endless reps for the entire minute.
Reverse Butterfly (posterior deltoid)
Another Leg Press
Hip Abductor both ways
I try to do those everyday, 1 minute each.
Abs I do 3 sets for 1 minute each (55 reps each)
Lower Back Machine I do twice a week, 1 minute. I've heard the lowerback takes longer to recover.
I then do 15 minutes of cardio elliptical.
After this workout I drink a fat burner smoothie, made at our health cafe.
Later that night I do another 45 minute of cardio (run or elliptical).
I take a CLA pill & a multivitamin in the morning and a Carnitine pill before each workout.
If you have suggestions on different routines, please feel free to suggest something. I really want suggestions on meals, because chicken breasts are getting so boring!

Anyone know about how many calories are lost in a 20 exercise machine workout, 1 minute per machine? Also, can someone give me an estimate on how many calories you burn a day without exercising, so I can keep track of my intake more accurately?
