christmas cookie HIIT

December 26, 2011

Nothing feels better, to me, than an after Christmas workout. Yesterday our Xmas spread was a roasted turkey, honeybaked ham, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato casserole, asparagus, raw broccoli salad, green bean casserole, cornbread dressing, cranberry sauce, pecan pie, blackberry pie, pumpkin gingerbread trifle, fudge, cookies, more cookies and more cookies.

Did I mention there were only 9 of us?

So to the treadmill I went today! Not wanting to spend a ton of time of the treadmill (I do have priorities people!) I opted for a HIIT workout that did not disappoint!

Minutes       Incline       Speed

0-4                   8.0           4.0

4-5                   1.0            4.5

5-6                   1.0            8.0

6-7                  1.0              4.5

7-8                  1.0             8.2

8-9                 1.0              4.5

9-10               1.0              8.4

10-11              1.0             4.5

11-12              1.0             8.6

12-13             1.0              4.5

13-14             1.0              8.8

14-15             1.0               4.5

15-16            1.0               9.0

16-17            1.0               4.5

17-18            1.0               8.8

18-19            1.0              4.5

19-20           1.0               8.6

20-21           1.0              4.5

21-22           1.0              8.4

22-23           1.0             4.5

23-24           1.0             8.2

24-25           1.0              4.5

25-26           1.0              8.0

26-27           1.0               4.5

27-30          8.0              4.0

DO IT! It takes 30 minutes, you feel a million times better, and then you can go eat more leftovers and Christmas cookies!

Winning.

    You go girl! I am going to give this a try later today! I hit the gym yesterday (it is a 24 hr, key entry gym) to escape the Christmas toy craziness for an hour! I was the ONLY person there and it was heavenly. Came home a much better wife/mom. I am going to give this a try later…thanks!
