Happy Wednesday everyone and guess what?! Show cancelled tonight so that means a night off! Now the question is, what to do tonight?? hopefully I can come up with something fun!
I wanted to update you all on my latest goals! I’ve been feeling a little bit off lately as well as feeling low about my body so I decided to do something about it! I’m making some good changes rather than feeling sorry for myself.
I asked some of my fellow FitFluentual Ambassadors about some ideas to switch up my fitness routine and I got some great tips!
So first I took a good look at what I was eating and when I was eating it. I made a new goal to eat CLEAN ( which I already do, but needed a wake up call) and make sure to eat small meals every 3 hours or so. I was letting myself slip a little with Easter goodies and what not so it was a good re-evaluation. Im eating an unlimited amount of veggies which I love, keeping the fruits to a minimum and of course protein! I also need carbs so I’m making sure to get enough of those but also making sure they are quality!
Now for fitness!! I’m always excited to change it up, but nervous as well because I get comfortable in what I’m used to. I have never took to running very well but I thought I should explore it. I also was told I needed to try weights and see how I felt about that. With that said, I decided to give Jamie Easons LiveFit trainer as well as Tabata/Interval style of running a try and see how my body responds! Lets be honest, I hate running….So I’m going to build up slow and see if this is what my body needs. If not, then off for another search of what works for me! I will still be incorporating my bodyrock, ZWOW’S, and HIIT workouts, on the days I dont run or Weight Train so I’ll keep you posted on the progress!
Here is an example of a good run I found over at Liz.ashlee.com
0-2 mins: 4.5 mph, 4.0% incline
2-10 mins: 8.0 mph X1 min followed by 6.0 X1 min, 1.0% incline, complete 4 intervals
10-12 mins: 6.0 mph X1 min followed by 4.5 mph, 4.0% incline
I plan to run a little longer but Intervals are a great way to burn calories and help me get some great cardio! Wish me luck cuz running and I aren’t good friends yet… So I’m headed to the gym! Catch ya later!
