    So I am reverting to an old tactic and leaning on you a bit today, team. A friend of my daughter’s is hosting a surprise high tea for my daughter’s soon birthday at our house this afternoon and I am helping. You can practically taste the temptation already! I know that putting these kind of situations out to the group helps me, because in the back of my head I know you will ask me about them later! So here I go - thanks in advance! 🙂

    Motto: 🏋🏾‍♀️ Don't think, just do it!! Eat well 🥗to Live Well 🚢✈️🧳

    Recap: Had a good workout this morning. Tried something different. I googled..lose belly fat...and after pages and pages of advertisements, I came across HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Sounds scary...but looking closer...it's defined as working out at 80% of your maximum heart rate for a period of time and then doing less intensity for that same period of time. I found a treadmill work out which was perfect for me. 4 minute warm up 12 minute HIIT (alternating 30 seconds) and 4 minute cool down. I usually do 30 - 45 minutes on the treadmill at 2.8 mph so it seemed doable and that it would give me a good workout. So i did it and monitored my heart rate. It wasn't bad at all. I alternated between 2.5 (low) to 3.5 (high). After the 20 minutes, I continued for another 20 minutes but was able to comfortably do 3.0 mph!

    Goals for April - Water ~ get to 80


    - THOUGHTS: “You don't have to make any big sweeping commitments. Just do the best you can do for yourself today. Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Then you look back and all of a sudden you've strung together a lot of days where you've done the right things by yourself.” — Rob Lowe

    Step Challenge - Goal 8500
    ST = Moderate

    3/31 1544 ST =0 (ok, not April yet) :wink:
    4/1 8,191 ST = 15
    4/2 9,950 ST = 20
    4/3 7,653 ST = 15
    4/4 9,076 ST = 0
    4/5 7,066 ST = 20
    4/6

    Birthstone - Topaz

    @Trillium54 ~ thanks for asking. Yes, he was in a lot of pain when he came home on Thursday. He still has some pain but he's up and moving around so that's all good stuff!

    @roblinB ~ good luck at the party. I think it's even harder when it's at your home. I've heard suggestions to eat something healthy before hand...or even make sure there are healthy options available during the party. If all else fails, just be mindful and enjoy yourself. It's just one day that deserves your full attention!🙂
