#100FITDays Day NIneteen
What you need: FIT magazine plus stopwatch or interval app. We have linked each exercise above to the appropriate instruction video by Siobhan.
Perform each exercise at full capacity for 20 seconds, rest for 10 and move on to the next exercise for 20 seconds, rest for 10. Then the third exercise for 20 and rest for 10. This completes one round. Perform a minimum of three rounds.
Good morning and welcome to day 19. It’s Friday and Tabata day again.
How did you get on with the bonus cardio workout yesterday? It’s a tough one, isn’t it? I am going to do it tomorrow morning in the garden, weather permitting. I think I have become a bit too comfortable with the old interval sprints – I am not getting the same workout from them as I did at the start. You really need to mix things up every now and then for your fitness to improve and your body to change. That’s the beauty of the exercises Siobhan is giving us – keeps the body guessing.
Well, I have been really thinking about my food lately. I was feeling a bit weak for the last day or two and I have finally given into Siobhan’s directive that I am not eating enough carbohydrates.
So last night I had some butternut squash with my dinner, which was salmon. I had some aubergine also – all baked in the oven drizzled with a bit of olive oil.
For lunch, I was a bit bold. I was out with a few friends and I went for the burger, no bun, and some salad. I forgot to tell the waiter to also hold the bacon and cheese and when it came, I couldn’t resist it.
I put this weakness down to one thing – porridge. I had some porridge for my breakfast, with an egg and some avocado, and it gave me terrible cravings. I definitely have an issue with oats so I am going to keep away from them.
For snacks I had blueberries in the morning and brazil nuts in the afternoon.#100FITDays Day 19
