Drink Up!

9 Jan

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day!  Today started out with a quick breakfast of banana yogurt with oats before tackling a long to do list which I got halfway through before deciding it was time to take a gym break.

Workout

As was scheduled in my Slim and Sculpt program, I had an interval day which consisted of one minute of running followed by a minute of fast walking for a total of fifteen minutes. It was definitely a harder workout than I expected when I was first reviewing it. The speeds were definitely a bit higher than I usually run when I do a distance run and the walking portions were still at 4.5 mph which kept my heart rate up. Thankfully, one of my favorite running songs came on near the end of my run to get me through the last few intervals.

I was certainly a hot mess once I got off the treadmill but I felt accomplished. I followed up my run with a quick ab workout and a BIG bottle of water in keeping with my resolution to drink more water. Speaking of which…

iDrate

I will be the first to admit that I am terrible at drinking enough water throughout the day. Enter iDrate which is a handy iPhone app that not only tracks your water intake but reminds you to drink more. How nifty is that? Once you download the app, it’ll ask your gender and then explain how to use the app. As you drink water, throughout the day, you even earn medals. If you’re like me and trying to up your water intake, I’d definitely check out this app!
