It’s the first day of Week 2 in my health journey and I’m so excited to keep going. I had a super early run this morning and I still need to get in my HIIT workout for the day (if you guys are interested in seeing what I’m doing, you can find that workout here). My biggest issue hasn’t actually been with keeping up my workouts, but more with counting my calories. It’s just so ingrained in me that I want to snack, it’s hard to resist in the name of weightloss.
As for what I’ve included in my second week workout and why, my bare minimum is to do cardio every day. Most days that means at least a mile on the treadmill, but I’ve included the stair climber and elliptical on one day to help me train for going on more hikes this summer. The end goal there is to not be panting on a 1 mile trail. Since the stairs are a bit higher impact I thought I’d split that day with a low impact elliptical run to finish it off.
The HIIT workouts are intense but a fun challenge and really push you to your limit. I’m still modifying the planks and burpees a bit, but we’re getting better. Later this week, I’ll post exactly what my arm, leg, and core day workouts look like so you can train with me if you’d like.
On a final note, I’m so happy to be a part of Amazon’s Affiliate program, especially because I get to share with you guys a special offer for Audible. I love listening to audio books when I workout, especially Harry Potter. And right now, if you guys sign up for a free trial through my link here, you get TWO free audio books.
