Hey, everybody! I just thought I’d brave the camera looking a bit Monday-bedraggled with this rain and wet day – and give you guys a little bit of an insight as to how I get over Monday-i-tis.
I take my own advice and I get out the door. And I guess while walking I take my mates with me. I go for a walk for 10 minutes and I make sure I have an awesome playlist. I’ll share my playlist on Spotify with you below.
Once you just walk out for 10 minutes if that’s all you promised yourself, “I’ll just go for 10 minutes.” After the 11th minute if you want to turn around and come back, you can.
Sure enough, I’m dancing, looking a bit strange, dancing down the road, having a bit of a bop to my playlist. Feelings heaps better, either a 25-minute cardio session in. Because on the way back I ran for 30 seconds and walked for 30 seconds.
Honestly, most people just don’t do that step. And it’s really difficult for you actually to burn enough calories to overcome any binge fest that you might have later in the day because you try to make yourself feel better and get over Monday-i-tis.
So, get out the door, get the endorphins flooding, have a good playlist. If you feel like jogging, do a 30-second jog, 30-second walk.
All this high-intensity interval training (HIIT), if all you’re trying to do is just try to lose some weight, maintain a healthy lifestyle, get fit, you really don’t need to do those sessions all the time, like twice a week is max. So, twice a week, a couple of sessions for 15 minutes, is all you need for that high-intensity interval training.
Just a session like this is enough to make you start feeling better. You’re more productive, you’re more likely to eat better choices throughout the day. And that’s what works – doing consistent effort over a long period of time.
I hope that helps.
Everyone can get out in their lunchtime and do a 10-minute walk, keep on going. If you want to keep on going after the 11th minute, keep on going back or turn back. It all counts. It absolutely counts.
I hope you have an awesome day.
After suffering a fairly serious breakdown I was unable to cope with life in general. My body felt broke, old and frail – I didn’t just feel middle aged, I felt half dead. I hadn’t realised that my body was self destructing and I was doing it to myself, working long hours, too much alcohol, lots of bad food and absolutely no exercise.
After six months of working with Bianca, I no longer need my blood pressure medication, anti depressants and my cholesterol is in a safe zone. I have lost 2 dress sizes and more than 26 kilos. I now have a life outside of our business and can see a happy, healthy future for our family. I hope the person I became never comes back as I like this girl so much better.
I had heard of Bianca through some magazines – it was an investment but I had tried and failed so many times but in six short months, 20 kilos melted off me and it had a massive and unexpected effect on our styling business. While working with Bianca we secured a national gig, increased our prices to a level we previously thought no one would pay, AND we were booked out weeks in advance.
The majority of this 20 kilo weight loss has only been 5% diet and exercise, the rest has been an emotional journey. Bianca confronted me and called me on my BS and challenged some of my most deeply help beliefs about who I am. And the results are undeniable. I haven’t completely quit drinking, I still get to eat chocolate, I’ve had the best year in my business EVER – and perhaps the most important thing is how differently I react to things emotionally.
Who knew that taking it slowly and being kind to yourself could get you the results that yelling at yourself couldn’t.
Before working with Bianca I was super stressed and I thought it was too hard and I didn’t have the time to be slim AND successful. But I was surprised at how easy it was to implement Bianca’s system – I haven’t counted calories and I still pig out on foods I love. It’s been no coincidence to me that as a result of the new clarity of mind I’ve actually doubled my business at the same time I’ve made these changes to my body.
