Fitness blender = Burpee Warning

I am awlays trying to keep fit,  so when my boyfriend sent me this ‘great’  website he had stumbled across I thought I would give it ago.

Given our loft room situation and the fact that last time I did an exercise video at home I scared the hell out of our housemate who thought we were enjoying some other pleasures, loudy; I waited until the boys were out.

The website? Fitnessblender.

I love home workouts but I tend to find them on the easier side in terms of cardio, this is the logic that lead me astray.  I selected a workout level of  5 (out of 6) and a calorie aim of 400-600. This was a mistake.

Their HIIT workouts are insane!  10 minutes in I wasn’t sure I was going to complete it but thanks to the counter and the knowledge that I just had to get through short rounds (…oh and the pause button for a quick breather!) somehow I managed to get through, burnt the calories and completed the workout.

This is probably the hardest I have ever workouted at home. I am not going to lie, my legs killed the next day- strecthing out & cooling down it a must- I learnt the hardway.

I now use the website regulary and really like the search feature so you can filter to find the right workouts for you. I do however, firmly believe most the videos should come with a burpee warning.

I’m Back

So I seem to have fallen off the blog wagon big time or is it that I’ve been on the blog wagon all this time. Who knows..

After some thought about why the lack of writing, I realised that I felt too pressured (albeit pressure I inflect on myself) to write about things that are relevant. Well, I have thrown that pressure out the window and will be writing about the things that really do consume a lot of my time.

This is namely Fitness and Food. My continuous mission to keep fit and enjoy food but will include all sorts, apart from liquorice (yuck!).
