Cardio workouts are better with "interval training"!

During a 30 minute cardio workout, when reaching the minute prior to 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30, I do a one minute full out sprint. This makes the time pass so much faster and expends significantly more calories.

Added bonus: I have to cool down after my sprint at minute 30, which extends my workout by 5 minutes. This means every 6 days, I'm getting a bonus 30 minute workout!

20 Years from Now

Keep in mind a great way to eat and exercise that you can see yourself doing 20 years from now. This frame of thinking helps us move away from a "dieting mentality" and towards a "lifestyle change mentality", which will keep your results lasting for the longterm...no more rinsing and repeating!

Pounds are Dropping

I have three rules:
First: Earn meal #1 with 30 min. of cardio
Second: Earn meal #2 with 6 glasses of water
Third: earn meal #3 with meeting weight training goals

In other words, I really do earn my food!

Secret Phrase

I'm just starting out in my quest to make fitness a way of life. The secret question that made me take the first step is, "IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?".
