I was finally able to get back out on the pavement again yesterday! And it felt awesome, but sooooooo hot and humid 🔥🌞😅💦 I thought I was gonna melt! It was good to get back out there. I only did two miles, but they were good miles. The first mile was my 🌟fastest🌟 mile yet since being back out there training. I guess the rest and the refresh did some good for my time! Mile two….🔥😓🔥 was so hot my legs were even sweating. I felt zapped on energy (3 days under 1000 calories), so I took it slow and just enjoyed the sunshine and the scenery. It was a beautiful day despite the heat!
It was only about 88°, but felt about 188°
When I got back I pushed out my workout 💻. I’m following a BOD fitness calendar that Shaun T put out to do after Shaun week. Yesterday was Pure Cardio 2 from his Insanity program. I haven’t done Insanity yet. Hubby and I plan too later this year, likely after 3 awesome rounds of Shift Shop, so I was super scared 😖 lol!!
Pure Cardio is indeed a KILLLER! You do a “warm-up”, stretch and then about 18 minutes of intense cardio. Shaun T doesn’t do a break 💦 but he does say if you need to rest, DO IT! When you do any exercise, NEVER compromise form. If your tired, sore, etc…. hit pause before you start compromising form.
💡Tip: You have to push yourself, but not to the point your doing the workout wrong or off, because then you won’t be working the muscle group the right way. Better to do three reps or three minutes only than to do thirty incorrectly!
But that’s the best thing about Shaun T’s programs, you can keep challenging yourself!
You see no photo’s from that workout lol, that’s because; one I was rushing around really trying to get a lot done in a short time yesterday, and two I was a sweaty hot mess and just did not want THAT ⚠️😱💦 photo to be out there on the internet for all time lol!
Today, I’m excited, it’s Insane Weights 🏋️🏼 day! I LOVE strength training!! It leans me out super quick when I add that to other cardio I do. On a side note, I lose weight from the top of my head down🔻 and from my feet up🔺, leaving the middle 🔵, well you know what I mean. Anyone else lose like that? I still have a long way to get where I’m going, but I’m in the right direction and on the right path so I know I’ll get there!
If you’re on a weight loss journey, never ever feel you are in a race, or have to lose super quick, or by ❌ time. Your focus needs to be on permanent solutions, on lifestyle changes that are livable and lovable 💗 Or they won’t be lasting changes. So that’s what you need to strive for. More than pounds lost, strive for a healthy life. The pounds will shed away, the inches will melt off, as long as you keep your focus on making 🌱healthy choices for living day to day life. That’s why I don’t believe in DIEts. DIEts traditionally have an end point. There is NO end point. ☠️ Death is an end point, And you want LIFE, a happy, healthy, LONG, thriving life. Don’t short change yourself out of that ✌️🏼💛🌹☀️
