Ate without a care in the world this whole weekend:
- fried ham, pigs in a blanket, chorizo sandwiches, ice cream with caramel sauce, popcorn, tons of nuts, pita chips with hummus, tacos and guac, rice with black beans and steak
tummy still looked good this morning. Score!
HIIT Challenge later (Gosh I’m dreading that so….)
HIIT Challenge begins tomorrow.
Gonna finish doing absolutley nothing today, because I’m def gonna need it tomorrow.
I’ve been doing High Intensity Interval Training lately, the first time I sucked so bad I could only phase from high intensity to normal one or twice. I’ve worked up to 5 phases. Walking at 4 mph pace for one minute, then sprint for 8.5mph or 8.8 mph for a minute and phase back to walking. At this point I can’t hold the 4mph pace so I walk in a range of 3.5mph – 2.7mph for one minute and then sprint again. 5 phases takes about 12 minutes. And it kills me. By the end I am sweating like I’ve never done so in my life and I literally have to stop with my head between my legs to catch my breath. I love every minute of it. Because at the end I feel like a total badass and could not be prouder for pushing myself when my head kept on saying “you can’t do this anymore, you’re so tired. Just stop, you’ve done enough, it’s better than nothing” Well… one thing is to start; the other is to finish what you started. Do it all or none at all
For seven days, from June 18th to June 20th I will do a HIIT workout everyday. I’ll start with 5 phases and hopefully work my way to 10 by the end of the week.
I’m going to hate myself so much for this, but I will be so proud on June 20th. I’m putting this up here to hold myself accountable more than anything, can’t pretend I never made this challenge if it’s online and public. HIIT is also supposed to burn a shit load of fat, let’s see. If I like it enough I might even do a second week, right before Vegas J
