Weekly Workouts | Three

Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a great post-Thanksgiving week and were able to get back on track a bit.  At the start of the week I was definitely a bit hesitant about upping my workouts and adding in more HIIT. I felt so lazy. But I knew nothing was going to get accomplished or change if I didn't push myself to action. And as usual, I went a bit off course with my planned workouts. Just Friday though.

Instead of an HIIT and weights, I just swamped it fro Saturday's workout, LISS, and core. So Saturday, I just did a lower body plyo workout. And to be honest, I'm realizing that I don't really enjoy HIIT that much. I think it's because it's timed and I prefer counting reps than timing my workouts. 

So for this week, I cut down on the HIIT workouts and I'll be doing more plyos with a bit of weight. I know sometimes there's a lot of pressure to do certain workouts or incorporate specific styles in your routine but honestly, just do what feels right for you. And yea, you need to switch things up every now and again, but you HAVE to make sure you enjoy it and that it fits into your lifestyle.
