Thrive90 – Days 3 & 4

Today is actually Day Four; and a day of rest. Boy, did I need it after Day Three’s activities! On Day Three, I had a new video to try. It was called HIIT Squat Walks – HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. This video and workout was short, but boy did it pack a punch! You do four different variations on walking in a squat position for 30 seconds each, with a 60 second ‘break’ in between. The funny thing is that it seems so simple, but my glutes and quads were definitely worked hard! I felt it all day yesterday and again today.

I’m sticking with eating less than I used to, but I’m not always making the best choices when I do eat.  I’m not at a point yet, where I am able to make two different meals so that mine can be healthier.  I will continue to work on that!

Well, tomorrow it’s back to another new video. I look forward to trying it as well as the others. I have to admit that’s one thing I like about the Thrive90 program is that there are several different videos to do during the week. These videos will be the same for four weeks, then there will be a new set of videos for four more weeks, and another new set of videos for the last four weeks. I am told that they get more challenging with each new set, which helps with boredom, strength training, and plateauing.

Thanks for reading this journey with me!

    Good luck with this!!! I do think it’s important to make two separate meals and would encourage you to. . .it’s a shame to “waste” food on kids who won’t eat it (ask me how I know) and many times I find that if I eat first, then feed the kids I’m less-tempted to pick at their food. Good for you, keeping up with the workouts! I’m usually a failure at that.

    Portion control is my downfall even with healthy meals. Come up with some healthy simple meals the kids like and its almost like just creating another side dish for a meal. My daughter is picky so she eats a lot of rice and beans and other simple things like that on the nights we eat something I know she won’t eat. I usually add a few veggies or fresh fruit to her plate no matter what she is eating to make sure she doesn’t live on rice and beans and bread.
