Interval training can be a great way to challenge your abilities. It is all about getting your heart rate up really high, and then back down low during the ‘rest’ period. But what other type of interval training can you do that is not already in your routine? Here is a list of some of my favorites.
Majority of us know that if you exercise and eat properly you will be rewarded with a healthy physique, and for a lot of people that is where the benefits of exercise end, but just because you look a certain way does’t mean you’re healthy by any means. You could be the most fit person on earth but if you have been conditioned (either by yourself, friends, family, or media) to think negatively and deny yourself your own love and self worth because you don’t look the same way a photoshopped woman on the cover of your favorite magazine does, you will never be happy.

So I started focusing on rest, which is one of the most important parts of the program.
I get asked a lot about emotional eating – and to be totally honest, it’s something I have struggled a lot with too. I am nowhere near perfect and I still struggle with it from time to time, but I want to help share my experiences and the tools I use that help me get out of that vicious cycle of feeling bad about myself, which leads to emotional eating, which leads to me feeling worse about myself, and repeat.
Let’s face it- eating healthy is expensive. Add eating organic on top of simply eating “healthy”, and the bill only continues to go up.
