Last night when I talked with my trainer, she said one of the best exercises for weight loss is cardio intervals. So, tonight I did a little over an hour interval cardio workout on the bike and elliptical.

I started work on our 2002 pictures. I began sorting through the box and organizing things. My goal is get this done by Jan 21. I have it spread over the dining room table and we will be having church here that day, so I want to have it done.

I also worked on quilting a quilt. This quilt top was given to me to quilt. It is a 9 patch double knit fabric. It is a good practice quilt. I usually quilt with pantographs, but I am doing free motion because of the stretchiness and unevenness. I am 3/4 done.

Daily Goals checked off:

    I do believe intervals (changing it up) is the most well-kept secret to weight loss. Our metabolism seems to go into low gear when we don't mix-it-up regularly.

    Glad you will be doing intervals; they can be exhausting, but such a good way to burn the calories! I was doing them on the elliptical yesterday too!!
