Gym episode 09/03: No excuses

Wednesdays during the 40 day challenge is usually when we go walking in the business park. That did not happen. If I didn’t exercise on Wednesday, I would only be doing 3 days for the week and my minimum is 4 days. Decision made….I would go to the gym.

But instead of leaving pronto and going straight, I idled at work then went to the bank. The result? I only had 15 minutes to exercise before I had to meet a friend for dinner. Yes….I carried clothes to bathe and change at the gym.

Busted my tail on the elliptical. Proud buck! Why? In the old days, I would have said since I only had 15 minutes, it didn’t make sense. Since I discovered High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), even 5 minutes is enough.

176 calories torched! Yay me!

That made me less guilty for having this delicious Waldorf Salad with mahi mahi, feta cheese and walnuts at Umbrella’s beach restaurant.

So peeps, the “I don’t have enough time to exercise” excuse has just been rubbished. Now HIIT it! 👍👍👏👏
