What’s the haps for the weekend? Here’s an idea, how about I give you a little challenge? It’s just a little something to get you started.
First, did you read my post on Watercress? It’s very stimulating, or at least informative. I suggest you check it out and toss together a delicious watercress feast over the weekend. Try it, you may like it.
Planning to get some exercise this weekend? If you are, good for you! If you aren’t, shame on you! Either way, I suggest that you spice things up by adding this little cardio interval circuit to your plans.
Here’s how it works:
Warm up with a jog, walk and light stretches 10 minutes.
30 seconds cardio (any form you like)
60 seconds rest (yep, rest, stand or walk around just breathe!)
Repeat this sequence for 45 minutes.
Cool down with 5 minutes of stretching.
Voila! You just burned off four glasses or wine, or roughly 400 calories. I bet you feel good too!
Not sure what I mean by “cardio?” Here are some ideas for your 30-second bouts. Choose one or mix it up.
Jog up stairs
Run/Run in place w/high knees
Ride a stationary bike briskly
Step Up (rapidly done)
Burpees or Jump Squats
Give it a try! It’s only 30 seconds of “hard,” then you get to rest for twice that. How bad can it be? I did this workout today and I’m still alive to write about it. Let me know what you think, good or bad! Same goes for the watercress! Speak up people!
