Janathon Day 2
For my birthday my friend gave me the Turbo Fire workout video set and I chose to do the HIIT 15 today. A HIIT (high intensity interval training) is just what is says, intense. For 15 minutes you jump, run, push, burn and sweat. I like it on days like today where I want to get a work out in, but don't want to spend all day doing it. I'm still pretty sweaty after and have to take a shower (damn those people that barely sweat), but it was worth it and felt great. I know I could probably push a little more, but I didn't stop during any of the intervals, even though my head was telling me not to. Afterward I went to Massage Envy for a massage I had scheduled. It was delightful.
Two days into Janathon and I'm eating more consciously, active and ready for the year ahead of me. I just hope I maintain this streak. I even started a food journal and although I haven't followed all my plans perfectly (let's be honest, who does), but I'm doing well and even though it's only been two days I feel pretty good, at least physically. Mentally, I've had a few minor things that stressed me out. I tend to over worry about little stuff sometimes, but thankfully that was resolved so hopefully tonight I'll be sleeping pretty good :)
