Last year I was  motivated to workout and get in shape. I found time to workout in my busy schedule was it easy, no. Now after a yr of only going to grad school full-time I am back into the work field. Now I need to find balance between working out, going to school, and working.

I love working out. Yes, I do complain when my trainer is pushing me especially during high- intensity interval training (HIIT). I have a love/hate relationship for HIIT simply because of the interval training and no rest until your finish with a set, which can take up all your energy.

It’s the benefits of HIIT that I enjoy:

  1. Efficient
    1. It does not take up all day. If you have a busy schedule you can still squeeze in a workout either early in the morning, during a lunch break, after work or before bedtime. As mention in Shape magazine “Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of interval training doing it 3x a week then jogging on a treadmill for an hour.” Continue reading “HIIT”

I am all about transforming my body into something better. Looking back at my past  four birthdays since the age of 25 my body has transform for the better. I’m not going to say  journey has been easy, but deciding to get healthy and get fit has been a right choice for me. I am not talking about getting skinny because being skinny does not mean being healthy. I am talking about eating right, working out and making lifestyle changes that will only enhance your journey.

We all want amazing bodies, but we need to understand it’s going to take time to get there. While it might seem hard at first to reach your goal remember it will happen. I constantly look at old pictures as my motivation to keep going. I do not have the perfect body, but I will never return to how I was a year ago. I just have to keep going and remember my body is under construction.

I don’t diet, I eat clean. I have decided to change my lifestyle  that does not make me live on a diet plan or diet program for the rest of my life. Eating right is a lifestyle change. I am not perfect, the last five days I have not been preparing food simply because I had no food in my house. I was eating out more and more. Even though I was working out I was not preparing my food. I love to workout means I need to eat clean as well.
