Day 8: Stick with it (Natalie)

February 02, 2014 3 min read

Well we are past the one week mark now. Day 8. There may be some of you who are tempted to leave it at that and return to your old ways, but don't. You have already achieved far too much to quit now. Getting past the first week is the hardest part because you are struggling to adjust your lifestyle, it's hard trying to eat healthier and to find the energy and motivation to workout every day, but now you are past those difficult first few days of breaking old habits you can do this. You may be finding that you aren't seeing results as quickly as you had hoped, but that's no reason to quit. Continue to work hard and you will see results. Although when you look at your body you may think nothing has changed, you will undoubtedly be able to find something that has improved since you started the challenge. It could be something as simple as an increase in energy, your skin may be clearer than before or you may have a more positive attitude. Exercise is fantastic for so many more things than just burning fat. I have yet to meet someone who has ever said that they wished they hadn't done a workout. The feeling you get each time is amazing. It's worth it just for that feeling! Do not quit. exercise_motivation-304x400 I found today's workout really hard because I'm not a big of mountain climbers. As I mentioned in a previous blog post though, not liking an exercise usually means it's going to be making a big change and that's why it hurts so much. My favourite part of this workout was the lateral touch downs. I enjoy doing squats and this incorporated them in a way I've not tried before. I had to modify the ninja tuck jumps as I have a bad knee (I've had two operations on it), so I just did the part where you jump 180 and land on your feet, and left out the initial jump from the floor onto your feet. I ate pretty well today although I was out for the whole day so didn't get much chance to have lunch: Breakfast: Porridge Lunch: Smoothie made from 1 banana, 3 sticks of celery, handful of kale, handful of blueberries, 1 apple, 1 pear Dinner: Chicken breast with potatoes, green beans and carrots (following the Nutrition guide portions) untitled I'm feeling really positive about this challenge. Don't get me wrong, there are days when I really don't feel like working out, but it's only 12 minutes so I get myself into my workout clothes and before I know it the workout is complete. That's one of the best things about The Daily Hiit workouts, they are so short, yet seriously make you work hard. We all have busy lives and it's easy to say you can't find the time, but each one of us can manage to clear 12 minutes of our day. These workouts, although short, kick your butt. Don't be fooled by thinking that because you aren't working out for long, that you won't work up a sweat. Every Daily Hiit workout is configured to make you push yourself, and with each workout you complete you are improving. Don't quit.
