I started a new workout program this week. It is called Metabolic Aftershock. I am sure you have been seeing advertising for it everywhere. It really appealed to me because each workout is only 15 minutes long… and is body weight exercises that can be done anywhere… including in our small living room (and hotel room). I can do a 15 minute sweaty, hard workout, and still get outside afterward for a run or a walk or go play tennis or golf.
In the past, I have found that a 40 - 50 minute strength workout tires me out so much that I don't really want to do much else exercise-wise for the rest of the day... and that is just no good for me in the Summer when I want to do it all!
So far so good… the workouts are hard. And I am loving them. And I do seem to be staying ‘hot’ for a few hours after I have completed them. But, wowzers, have I been hungry on days I am doing these workouts. I hope that means I am burning calories like a mad woman!
I have been taking part in a challenge this week called #40plantfoodschallenge – the idea is to eat 40 different plant foods in a week… I am doing pretty well so far – well over the 40 and I will be writing a post about it for my food blog at the end of the week.
