One Month In...

I can't believe it's February already! One month of resolutions in, one month of good workouts in and really good nutrition...hopefully! Take a look at how the past month went, what did you feel good about, what do you wish would have gone better. Don't get down on yourself for that dessert or missing that workout, instead focus on how this month can be a better, healthier February!
If you have been doing the same cardio or weight workout for the past month or months, now is the time to change it up. Cardio is great, but your body adapts really quickly if you continue to do the same program day after day. My advice is to add in some additional intervals to your cardio program for 30 seconds to a minute to make it harder. For example, up the resistance or incline for 60 seconds and run/bike/stride as fast as you can for that minute and then return to the lower intensity. Adding bursts of intensity to a cardio program is one of the best ways to change it up and burn fat! Have fun and don't be afraid to push your cardio to the next level!
