**Day 154**

I've lost a half pound since I weighed in on Tuesday:

I would love to be below 220 for my weigh-in next Friday, so I'll need to lose 2.5 pounds - hopefully, I'll be able to do it!  I haven't had a big loss in awhile, so maybe next week will be the week!

Today, I'll be doing the 30 Day Shred - Level 1, and, also, I'll be running 1 mile outside without stopping, and then I plan on walking another mile when I'm done w/ my run.

Yesterday, on the treadmill I did cardio intervals.  I would walk at 3.8 mph for 3 minutes, and then run at 4.2 mph for 2 minutes, and then repeat - I did that for 30 minutes.  I think, I'm going to start trying some short burst intervals - maybe run at 5 mph (fast for me!) for 30 sec. or 60 sec., and then go back to walking for a few minutes, and then do another burst.  Have you ever tried short-burst interval training?  If so, what did you like, or not like, about it?


  1. Just saw an infommercial reminding me of the benefits of interval training, lol - remember, you burn calories long after vs. just going straight through. I actually prefer it anyway! Now that I don't have to train for the walk all the damn time I definitely plan to focus on that! : ) WTG on the loss!

  2. I started interval training two weeks ago, and i love it!!! I started out with walk/jog/burst/jog/walk and did each for 3 minutes. This week I moved up to 4 minutes for each. I do a total of 30 to 45 minutes total.

    Good luck on getting below 220!!

  3. Hi, Deb!! I think, I'm really going to love the interval training, too. I'm heading over to check out your blog! Thanks for commenting!

  4. Isn't that "Last Chance Workout" short-burst interval training? Or is that "high-interval training"? She says something about it during the workout...I'll have to check next time I do it.

    All I know is that it's nice to have that BURST, kills.
