So, this week I ran....alot... I also hit the gym alot. Tim knows it's where I can find my peace. I also had a weigh in this week and although I was down 3 pounds this month, my bodyfat creeped up .5%. Eek! Nothing major...I know..I earned that .5% increase, trust me!
Tim reminded me this morning of how far I've come in less then 5 months of training..let's take a peek. Here is me on the way to deliver the twins.....50cm belly....ouch! Still rockin the lulu's though!
Here is me this week...29 inch waist (I am striving for a six pack this summer...right now I have a 2 pack. Ha! Also ignore my white belly....if the weather here would cooperate I would tan that belly to match my arms!)
This just shows that hard work will pay off...all you mommies out there who email me (ps: why not post a comment?) asking for my tricks. THERE ARE NO TRICKS. I use no supplements or fat burners, I train hard and eat clean. Plain and simple. These past 2 weeks I have been skipping meals, inconsistent with my protein intake and overall just too many "treats" This resulted in lost muscle even though I have been training. If you are putting in serious gym/cardio time, you must eat.
Ok, lecture over..(it's more of a self lecture to remind myself to practice what I preach!)
So for fitness friday I will post my treadmill run this AM. You can vary the speed/incline according to your level but here is mine.
Minute 1-5: warm up walking at 3.9mph
5-10: light jog at 5.4
10-20: hill training 1min (incline 8, 4.5mph), jog 1min (incline 2 5.5mph)
20-25: sprint training 30sec (incline 1, 7.0mph) walk 30sec
REPEAT the hill and sprint training for a total of 30 min high intensity cardio.
Cool down by walking at least 5 min and stretch!
