Interval Training

On Saturday morning I got up early and decided to try doing some interval type training. My flat mate took on the role of trainer and I did 5 minutes on the treadmill, 5 minutes of boxing, 5 minutes on the exercise bike and 5 minutes on the fit ball. Then I repeated the circuit, so it was 40 minutes all up.

The best part of the training session was that every 5 minutes that I did, I worked 10 times harder then I normally would, because it is only 5 minute sessions, I was able to push myself to my limit for each session. During my last session I nearly vomited, which I guess is a good thing. I must have really pushed myself! I can't wait until next Saturday to do it again.

My eating wasn't that good over the weekend. Friday night I went to my mum and grans and bought fish and chips for tea as an early mother's day dinner. Then Saturday night my dad and step mum came to stay and we went out for dinner and I had a big steak and potato's, red wine and chocolate cake. God it was yummy though! Sunday we went to the footy with my brothers to see my mighty Cats win over the Eagles in Geelong. Everyone ate chips and hot dogs, but I bought an apple and a sandwich- so at least I drew the line somewhere!


  1. Awesome! I love that you're getting into Interval training, I think its the greatest way to get in shape (next to Body Jam ;-D), and an awesome way to push yourself without going over the edge. Be careful about the So Hard That You Spew thing though, that could be a sign that you blood sugar levels are low before you start your workout.

    I'm thoroughly impressed with you not eating hot dogs and chips at the footy - every time I go to the cricket, I MUST splurge, and if I don't, its like a big disappointment o_0

    And on top of all that delicious foodies you ate, you've had a brilliant weekend!

  2. Good going on the interval training. Smart to push yourself! Keep up the good work.

  3. Go you!!.... You are on the right track!! I bet you feel better already!!??
