    I attended a 1hr high cardio class at my gym tonight; I mostly kept up 😆 the teacher was great and motivating. I’ll try again next week.

    I am often going on to Instagram to get work out ideas, as I follow a few trainers who post videos. I work out 5-6 days a week and like to mix it up & try new things. I thought I would start a discussion and have people post their work outs. Maybe give each other some good ideas! If I stick with the same thing over and over I get booorred.

    MY WORK OUT TODAY:
    30 min on treadmill, alternating speeds walking & running
    Squats with kettlebell
    Overhead press to squat with 40lb. bar
    Mountain climber/burpee/pushup circuit
    10 minutes of stretching to end

    Total time: 1hr. 10 min.

    Age: 47
    Current weight: 162
    Goal weight: 142

    Running and HIIT on the treadmill! Just cardio today.

    1hr stair workout with PT every time I think it can't possibly can't get any harder it does looks like decline press ups are going to be a regular thing.

    3.1 mile run, legs were seriously tired and it felt like the final 3 miles of a half and was slow

    30 min tabata class

    45 min total body conditioning class

    Just over 1000Cal burnt and I'm done for the day. Going to rest until the run to bootcamp tomorrow

    Still to early to work out for me (I work out after work and dinner), but yesterday I did:

    20 jump into burpee position, lower, superman, jump into standing position
    20 monkey pushups
    20 james bond lunges
    20 side crunches (10x2)
    20 breakdance pushups

    three times.
    All done very slowly with holds and explosive upwards movements. My muscles were shaking afterwards :D

    Less fun more work (but good work) for today's workout - this time with a partner
    8x1' at our 1k pace/1:40 off switching with our partner - each person did eight intervals. So we set the monitors up for 20 sec rest and we had 10 seconds to switch and then were cheering on our partner. Then we had a 10 min rest and did the same thing but six intervals for each person. The goal was to practice the first minute of our 1k without blowing up.

    I couldn't easily find my last (best) 1k test. It turns out my split from that was 1:45.5. I have another 1k test next Wednesday. I'm going to shoot for 1:45 and see how I feel for the last 500m. I didn't take a picture of the screen for the last six, but my split for the last interval of the first set was 1:43.4 (it was the only one under 1:45.5, though one was 1:45.6) - mind you my goal was 2:05 which I quickly realized was too slow so I just disregarded said goal.

    I am biking back to the first place I saw the Pacific Ocean. Pretty awesome memories of that place, living on the other side of the country, and so on.

    Plus, this has the added benefit of being just long enough that I can finish it a lot earlier than 365 days. I can also trick myself into biking more often by telling myself it's *only* 10 miles or more a night. Little stuff adds up and the stupid brain doesn't get as exhausted doing little things.

    The weather cleared up so I went for an hour + bike ride. My bike is an ancient mountain bike with 18 gears. I ride it in the highest gear. That's a workout.

    Nostalgia and exercise paired must be a great way to wire the brain to want more, right? I love what you are doing!

    And I most definitely relate to brain trickery as I consistently plan big goals - too big and my brain gets frustrated like "we are doing what?, no, not possible!". So my only way through is to breakdown challenges into mini goals, which I love in a get freaky about organising kinda way (don't judge me people LOL).

    I keep a MiGoals diary too so I can schedule it all in, measure outcomes and physically cross of achievements.
    I also reward myself regularly (not food), just nice things that make me feel good.

    At the end of accomplishing big goals my brain is in shock and awe and the endorphins kick in.

    Rinse and repeat, because it works.
