2) Fitness favourite

My blogging friend, Gina from Fitnessista introduced me to a great high-intensity interval training workout called ‘Tabata’ that takes a minimum of 4 minutes to get the heart racing and the whole body working.

What I love about this type of training is that you don’t need any equipment, it can be done in the comfort of your own home and it is not time-heavy, making it easy to squeeze into a busy schedule.

Tabata works on intervals where there is 20 seconds of high intensity work followed by 10 seconds of rest. This is repeated 8 times, which makes for a total of 4 minutes. Check out the videos bellow for a guided workout.

(she also has a lot more detailed information about the workout)

Mindy Mylrea’s videos on YouTube are great resource 

3) Family favourite

My grandpa ‘kissing’ a photograph of my brother who is currently overseas working on a cruise ship.  We all miss him terribly, but no one more than these 2!

Happy Friday friends!

Be sure to let me know what you think of Tabata training if you give it a try.

  2. That picture is priceless!
    Favourite in food- fresh raspberries from my parents’ patch!
    Favourite in fitness- checked off a 3.5 km swim this morning. Only 300 more to go for my IM swim, so it gave me confidence!
    Favourite in family- a long run with the hubby tomorrow. I love training with him!

    • Fresh rasberries…yum! At the moment a small punnet of raspberries costs a fortune. Would love to include more fresh berries into my diet.

      Good job on the swim! Wow. Nothing like a good boost of confidence before a race. Enjoy your run with your hubby tomorrow. It is great running together, double the joy and sense of achievement 🙂
