Good Morning, lovelies!
Hope your Friday night was great and your Saturday is going well so far!
This weekend will be fab because we have a long weekend over here.
Bahaha, so true.
Reasons why I’m a fan of today
1. I cleaned my whole place yesterday, I love being in an area that’s been nicely cleaned.
2. It’s Saturday. Duh.
3. After this post is done, I’m heading out for my daily coffee. Addicted.
4. My workout is done, so I now have the whole day ahead of me.
I’d say that’s pretty decent.
After this mornings workout, I needed something quick to eat, enter baked oatmeal. I baked it the night before so it would be ready to consume when I came home.
oats, coconut flour, stevia, baking powder, banana, egg whites, almond milk, topped with protein frosting.
Let’s talk workouts this week, shall we?
As you probably know by now, I love HIIT workouts.
I love that they help to kick things up a notch, you get more bang for your buck this way. HIIT is demanding and hard, as long as you PUSH yourself. Get yourself out of your comfort zone. That is the key to HIIT workouts, you need to push yourself to the maximum to get the benefits and results you want from your exercise routine.
It’s easy to mix things up, you don’t need to perform high intensity on exercise equipment. You can do this at your house with absolutely no equipment, or do it while on a run outside. Wherever, whenever.
The best part, for me, is that HIIT is short and sweet. I feel like I don’t have time to get bored, because the exercises or intensity change so often. Quality over quantity, my friends.
Today I give you a workout that will work every inch of your body and it doesn’t take long to complete. It is quick and effective. Yeahhh, buddy.
The plyometric’s in this workout will help to switch things up, keep the workout challenging, take your workouts up a notch, get that heart rate up fast, and you don’t need any equipment. Awesome, right?
I do these workouts at home mostly, because as much as I love to jump around like a crazy person, I do look odd at the gym flailing all over the place, sweating my face off
I also want to note that I do realize that doing these workouts take a lot of energy out of me. I have been trying to add a little weight to my frame and know that I am burning calories by exercising, so do not fret, on days I exercise I increase my calories to an intake that suits my activity level.
Thanks to Stefanie for hosting Sweat It out Saturday
Monday – was this HIIT workout.
Tuesday – spin class!
Friday – I had another spin class, followed by a foam rolling session. This was done with the class as well.
It was a great way to make sure I got my stretching in. Ah, feels so good after. I need to be stretching more, that is for sure.
Saturday – This old BodyRock workout. An oldie but a goodie. I did this 4 times though, for a total of 16 minutes.
