Disclaimer: Gina was kind enough to send me an early copy of her book, HIIT IT! The opinions below are all my own.
ahhh the empty house.
I’ve yammered nonstop about our move.
I’ve detailed what I perceived to be the drawbacks, yet I’d be remiss if I didn’t stop to share the upside.
The HUGE, cavernous, winter vacation boredom killing silver lining I discovered as we awaited our stuff:
(it was doodle running free heaven.)
stopped whining paused and looked around I realized we possessed a gift of indoor space we may never have again once our furniture arrived.
I needed movement (<—-desperately).
The Child was bored (<—-she crazy).
The Doodle was happy to do *anything* which meant he didn’t have to go out into the cold (<—-he wise).
An idea was born.
And unbeknownst to my two sidekicks I had a secret weapon:
A “weapon” I’d told Gina I would possibly have time to peruse months from now.
Weeks down the road when I was unpacked and settled.
Until I realized in an AH HA! moment of sorts (and experience I really never believed in until that afternoon):
Now is the perfect time.
I had no free time (cleaning organizing readying soon I knew all rooms would be bursting with boxes).
I had an abundance of stress.
It was (and I laughed out loud as I thought this) the *perfect* time to HIIT IT!
And so we did.
And, as with all things US, we did it our way.
(we may have added some exercises)
For the Tornado and me the
fun PLAY was in Gina’s total body circuits.
We climbed the mountain.
We planked, lunged, the squatted, and squat jumped.
We repeated as many times as possible simply because it (perplexed Charming and) made us laugh.
My two sidekicks cared *not* our HITT provided more BANG for our (exercise-time) buck.
They weren’t interesting in the fact the were working harder, not longer, and all of our
HIIT IT! workouts ROCKED with just body-weight alone.
They were disappointed we were finished in 20 minutes and didn’t “get” why I was excited HIIT is a scientifically-proven method backing up my LESS IS MORE! LESS IS MORE! yammers.
(monkey see. monkey do. doodle baffled.)
We rocked the fitness in HIIT IT!
The food/recipes contained in the book?
We have pots and pans now and we’re coming for you!
(kitchen stuff was previously in here)
First stop? According to the CHILD it’s Gina’s Amazeballs.
First stop? According to the Mama it’s the Turkey Lentil Muffins.
(the prep will resemble this)
According to us both (and the little biped is tough critic) you need to snag you a copy, join us & HIIT IT.
