Fit Friday with Nichole

Christmas Holiday fun is in the air and all over my calendar. Trying to find time for it all and keep my sanity is quite the balancing act. For me, finding time to go for a run, get in a quick lift at the gym, or even just getting out with my dogs for a walk become vital to the whole precocious process.

A couple of tricks I have found that work for me. 

First, I can’t try and justify parties and all the yummy food later with a workout. I become resentful of my workout and don’t really enjoy the treat later. Instead I need to go for a run because it clears my head and makes my heart happy. Then I enjoy the treats because they also make my heart happy, along with all the fun company that come with them. 

Second, I don’t force a workout into a schedule that just doesn’t allow for it. But I have found that I can generally at least sneak out for a mile or two with my dogs and everyone will feel better.

When I can sneak in a weights session I tend to make it all encompassing, meaning lots of different body parts and will also get my heart rate up. With that, let’s get to this week’s workout. We are going with a HIIT workout.
