It’s been a while since I have checked in with everyone on your Get Up and Move progress. How are you all doing? Have you found something that you enjoy doing for 30 minutes a day that gets you moving? Do you have more energy? Are you sleeping better?
I have been doing great. I will admit, some days are better than others. Even when I don’t feel like getting in my workouts I still do and feel great after I am done. Lately life has been sort of crazy here, so I do feel a sense of accomplishment because I have not missed a single workout because of life issues.Priorities! Priorities! Priorities!
My week looked liked this:
Sunday: lap swim at a local high school 40 minutes
Monday: HIIT workout on the arc and strength training at the gym 1 1/2 hours total
Tuesday: 30 minutes cycling, stability ball exercises, 3 mile walk
Wednesday: 30 minutes on the arc, strength training all at the gym
Thursday: 30 minutes of cycling, strength training and toddler yoga with my little ones…always a joy to watch them do this
Friday: HIIT workout on the arc, strength training all at the gym 1 1/2 hours total
For today my plan is to get to the gym also. Saturdays are nice, I don’t feel like I have a schedule. Eventually I get there. During the week, it’s much harder, especially after a long day. Sunday I will not get in a workout because I will be shivering the calories away somewhere beautiful. Hopefully, if I can hold the camera steady and I will have some pics to share with you next week. It’s going to be cold but great to get some fresh air in my lungs.
Recently I decided to give the HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout a try and I have really found them rewarding. If you are unfamiliar with HIIT workouts here is link for you to take a look at. Arc Trainer HIIT workout. Although, I do set my intensity higher and my strides are a little faster than they recommend, I am still able to recover my heart rate in the time recommended. To each their own, this is just an example of what they recommend. It’s a rewarding workout I can get out in 30 minutes with awesome calorie burn. I try and get in a HIIT workout at least twice a week, and so far so good.
I better get going and start on my “to do” list. I just thought I would check in an see how everyone is doing. Keep Moving:)
