...And it didn't come soon enough!
I know I only had a 4-day working week due to MLK Day last Monday, but this week seemed to just drag on and on.
Anyways, today is CARDIO-HIIT day and I made it to gym this morning. I did the 20 minutes INTENSE HIIT on the elliptical with an extra 10 minutes tagged on at the end, also on the elliptical, going backwards and at moderate intensity. I then proceeded with my ABS workout, BFL style, doing crunches on a ball with dumbells.
Overall a very good workout.
The weather held up and it is just beautiful today. After lunch, I changed into my sneakers, grabbed my iPOD, and went for a brisk walk to the walking/jogging trail at work. Total miles walked is 2.6 miles.
Eating-wise, I've been good so far. However, I am going to a retirement party this afternoon, so I am hoping I can resist temptation.
Also this weekend, I'm going to my parents' place. I'm bringing some protein shakes and hope for the best. They're not exactly into clean eating. I've tried to enlighten them, but old habits are hard to break. I doubt I'll be eating super clean this weekend, so I will have to rely on moderation.
I only have to be strong for one day because Sunday is my free day. Yeah! There's some kind of a feast at church on Sunday and you can bet I will definitely partake!
