I am clear that it gets my heart pumping at much higher levels than the bike...but Wow!!! I will be working this new aspect into my work out rather slowly I am afraid. I felt good about my workout though...I am hoping to get some swimming in tomorrow with my BFF!!! She swims like a fish...I swim more like a boulder...but I will do my best. It will be nice to change it up.
I am really wanting to push through, over, around...whatever it takes to get over the hurdle I encountered last week. I am also going to try to continue to add metabolism boosting foods/activities to my daily routine in hopes that my body will respond positively and clear this hurdle so that I am a little more energetic this week and my results are better. I have done some research and found the below suggestions for increasing metabolism! I think I will give some of these a try.
- Early workouts will boost metabolism and last longer into the day
- Higher intensity aerobic workouts increase metabolism
- Substitute some carbs with lean protein
- Eat small meals/snacks every three to four hours. Helps to maintain higher metabolism
- Drink more water...(boo Hiss)
- Drink Green Tea
- Eat Almonds
- Have some Eggs
- Throw back some Salmon
I am looking forward to this week. We are just 3 weekends away from The Firefly Run...My Cousin Ali joined the team....Thank you ALI!!! We are up to 11 team members.... JOIN US!!!! It will be a great event for a great cause (The Houston Food Bank).
