Body Rock Workout
Yesterday Melissa from The Delicate Place clued me into a site with a ton of at-home workouts – BodyRock.tv. Holy moly. I just did this one: Amazing Fat Burn Workout. It took me 16:45 to complete and I was pooped at the end. I was actually feeling the burn about 2 minutes into it (the first 4 minutes are mad intense cardio intervals) but I just kept panting and grunting all the way through. Instead of a sandbag I just held 2 3-pound weights in my hand (so 6 pounds total).
I don’t have a sandbag… who does?? I don’t know anyone that has this piece of equipment but they seem all the rage on the internets. I cannot imagine how nutso this workout would have been if I’d been holding 20 pounds of sand over my shoulder instead of these light weights. MDA has a tutorial to make your own so maybe I should try that.
Also - I used this for my interval timer. (You need 16 sets of 9 seconds followed by 6 seconds = 4 minutes.)
I was browsing the site and I came across some food challenges – for example, this one – you pick one thing that you know is not good for you, or not helping your routine, or whatever, and try to avoid it for a week. Maybe diet soda is your weakness. Recently my weakness has been no-sugar-added chocolate =/ It’s not necessarily bad, but I’ve been eating it in large quantities because my mind thinks that no sugar = unlimited quantities okay! So I think I will avoid it for a week. Are you guys in? Do you have any bad food habits or indulgences that are becoming just a bit too common? After the week I’ll be back to eating my sugarless chocolate, but hopefully with more moderation.
Psst. Regular posting is what you get when I keep waking up and going to sleep early! I’m enjoying it. I’m going to go putter around the house before I get ready for work.
