Then wouldn't you know it, I left both my heart rate straps at work. My wife called before I came home from work to tell me that all our kids were spending the night with grandma. Spending the night meant no kids, so I pulled a "let's go to the gym" out of my hat. My wife tried to tell me she was still sick, to which I responded, "Oh ok, you can stay home, but I'm going." We went. :) 30 minutes on the elliptical, I'm claiming 300 calories, and you can't stop me.
