Jinx!

It happened again. I comment on someone’s blog or post here saying, “I dont’ do that,” and low and behold, the next day I find myself doing exactly what I said I “don’t do.”

It happened a few weeks ago when I commented somewhere-or-other-(or-nowhere-and-made-it-up-in-my-head) that I know High Intensity Interval Training is awesome for you, but I just don’t do it. Then, what do I find myself doing on the stairmill? –> HIIT.

Yesterday, I commented on Julie’s blog  (PBFingers- you know, we’re clearly bff) about how I don’t really run blah blah blah. Then today, I get to the gym and what do I do? Run. In my mental defense of myself, I was not planning on running. No, I was planning on doing HIIT on the stepmill. Only, all of the machines were full. So, I was looking around and decided, “What the heck, let me just use the treadmill.” And I did. And it was great!

HIIT Treadmill Workout
– 3 minute warm up –> Build up to 6 mph
– 20 minutes –> Alternate 30 seconds at 8.2 mph and 1 minute at 6 mph
– 2 minute cool down–> from 6 mph to 4 mph

Simple and effective!

Maybe one day I will start running for serious…

Must get back to check on the stew I’m making with my awesome free soup mix. Wish me luck!

Do you ever surprise yourself by doing something you though you wouldn’t/didn’t do? 

What are you cooking tonight?

One thought on “Jinx!

  1. I think you are onto something re: that fitness study on candy eaters. I was thinking maybe something to do with low blood sugar due to exercise as well? Who knows. I don’t LOVE Fitness mag to be honest, but it’s a super cheap subscription!
