I was finally feeling good enough to do cardio..and BOY DID I do cardio!! I decided to try HIIT. I have been reading ALL about it, a ton of articles and found a plan to follow. So the first day I had to do a 5 min warm up then 30 seconds of the hardest fastest sprinting possible then recover for 90 seconds and repeat 6 times. Can I just tell you that when I first saw this I thought ok 30 seconds is nothing and I am going to be able to do this no problem. I was wrong. It was so tough. My first go around and I felt like I was going to fall on my face I was pushing myself so hard! My recovery time went by way too quickly lol. When I had completed it all I made sure to do a cool down jog and my entire workout was about 30 minutes. Driving back from the high school I felt like I was going to throw up (the article said this would probably happen with beginners because of the acid), I could feel my pulse throughout my entire body and man was I red and sweaty! It felt SO great to push myself THAT hard. Its definitely a different feeling than doing a 5 mile-6 mile run. Both are great, dont get me wrong I still like doing long distance but HIIT was definitely an experience. I've decided to do HIIT 3 times a week. LOVED it but like i said HOLY MOLY..definitely not for the weak lol. Other than THAT, my school day was great and it was a BEAUTIFUL day outside..the girls in class wanted to see a picture of the boy and now hes known as the "Ken" doll..always fun when other gals think your guy is hot stuff lol..Tomorrow morning is week 4 weigh in so I also will be doing my measurements and progress photos this weekend!! Hope you all are great, LOVE YOU ALL!
